Looking for bad quality, horrible graphic designers? Consider hiring terrible logo designers from fiverr.com. You'll experience the joy of throwing your money away willingly.
CONTINUED FROM PART 1: I could barely contain my excitement. I thought my website revamp was going smoothly, whatwith a great logo design contracted out to three designers who posted samples that bespeak unfathomable quality.
Even if one of them didn't quite deliver, surely I was guaranteed success with three?
The three designers I chose for example posted these pictures of sample work with their listings:
Oh wow, how fantastic! Obviously a very talented individual. The perfect choice!
Another one had these:
Superb! Just the mix of simplicity and complexity I need!
But my favorite designer seemed to be the one who's got all this class and quality:

Oh, how could I ever go wrong with these talented people! I couldn't contain my excitement whilst having to wait for the deadlines for the jobs to finally arrive.
So, let's skip to when all was said and done. What were the results? Fantasmagorical wonders?
Well, one of the designers was a no-show. Only on the day of the deadline she wrote that she is out of town and we'll have to cancel.
Another one is not much of a speller, and delivered this:
After asking her if we could try another idea and do a revision, she came up with this:
And the third logo designer, the one with all that class and quality sample photo, came up with this intricate masterpiece:
Yeah, wow, far too complicated for me to do that myself! One can just see the similar quality between their advertised sample and this; just compare them:

In honesty though, one would believe that these "designers" stole those pictures and misrepresented themselves completely.
The end of this was that I just had to spit in my hands, rub them together, and do my own website name/logo design.
In conclusion, what kind of quality logo design did I hire from fiverr.com?
Well, I couldn't figure out of the descriptive terms of either "terrible" or "ghastly" would be suited, so I just combined the two and would describe it as "ghastible".
So, if you're looking for ghastible graphic design, or GGD, consider fiverr.com :) Sounds like an illness or disease, and it sure feels like it.
Would I still buy jobs from fiverr.com? Yes, probably; there seem to be things that are just so delightfully innovative to buy into - BUT NO LOGO DESIGNING!!! Argh.
