That seems weird. I posted an ad for logo design and website theme in the "$50 - $500" budget bracket and I got 24 responses, cheapest being $50, most expensive being $240 (France). I went with a $65 quote from a designer in Bulgaria, the job is still working but Im very happy with the design concept he has created thus far.
All my other jobs posted received at least 10 service providers quotes.

No worries. I'll do it myself. Thanks so much!

What I had meant was that I posted in the classified ads of this forum but did not get any response yet.

Oops sorry I misunderstood. $500 doesn't go far in Singapore, infact convert it to GBP and you get alot more for your money design wise in the UK. Its ridiculous but it seems Singapore just doesn't have the same competition as say the UK and thus prices remain inflated.
You will get all your work done for around $100 on elance or an equivalent site. You will also be able to change the designs as much as you like (within reason of course) until you are happy with the look.
Good Luck :-)

Thanks so much.

I was talking to a web design firm today and they gave me a ball park mid 5digit figure for the cost of setting up my web site.. and I didn't even bring my Louis Vuitton bag to meet them.. sheesh.

better to have more options :)
Budget: $70
please leave me your email or pm me... thanks!


Go to Lasalle or Nanyang and ask some students to do it. $70 is really low. I billed out at USD $75/hour for logo design, and that was 15 years ago.

Is that SGD or US$.

Some people will charge more and some less but I would've that here you'd manage to get a designer for that. Depends on what you need really and how complicated etc etc.

If I was you and I wanted a talented designer to do something then I would look up Philippine designers. Much better than what you get here IMO. Also, because the cost of living is cheaper there, their costs will be better too.

Try using google and see what comes up. Normally I'd offer my services but I got out of doing logos for people. No-one wanted to pay a decent fee for my time and expertise but your budget should get you someone reasonable, especially in Asia. Look to either Thailand or the Philippines that would be my suggestion - some amazing work comes out of those 2 countries.
Don't p*ss me off! I am running out of places to hide the bodies.

UK that's SGD but i couldn't put a range in the classified ad section.. I'm actually looking at between $500 to $1000 SGD. I'm serious abt the business kicking ass from day one so I need a killer brand identity.

An advertising firm would be keen to do it for 2000 SGD but i need to balance my budget. I'm thinking of maybe contacting one of the designers at logopond if i can't find anything.

The corporate logos there really lives up.

Yes...not much people know how important a company logo is but how much you paid for a logo to be done by a student or a professional is not important.
Looking for someone to design your logo it's not the price but someone who are really good and can understand what your request is.
Paying a sgd 200-500 sometimes can get a better ones than the one who charge sgd 2000.

Most people who charge sgd 1500 and above, i find they are just a rip off.

Unless you know the designer really well from his or her past works, otherwise, $70 logo basically means nothing in business world most likely.

thks for de reply, i agreed that a company need branding, and a pro designer, but due to budget constrains, i am thinking of using logomakers, which allows you to design your own logos.
$45USD

Schools aren't bad here. It depends on the type of design you want to get into.

And design is always subjective. What one person considers good might not to others.
