I got your point, but it still doesn’t make sense to me from a consumer point of view. If I will need a design, I will usually ping few designers and get a quote on the same. The quotes which fits my budget, I will ask those guys to work on it.. And eventually it’s the final product that I will pay for…

Now with crowdsourcing, I’m saving my time and money, by letting people bid on my project, and work on it.., Obviously, designers who have enough time to do the work, will only participate.. If not, crowdsourcing is not a forced system, but a system which benefits both the designer and the client. As client get more options, and best designer gets reward in term of money.

More over, there are pros and cons of crowdsourcing your project, and one of them is originality issue, which will always be there.. It’s a client choice to decide, which model they prefer (Crowdsourcing or working with an individual company or freelancer)…

Personally, I’m a favor of Crowdsourcing, as when I’m not certain about what I need, crowdsourcing helps me to get fresh ideas, and also in budget….

By: Viano Sun, 10 Mar 2013 16:24:57 +0000 For a low budget, crowd-source is a good way to get a good design for less. But for a rel professional job, it will not work. This is because, those who are good in their jobs will not enter a competition, waste their time to design something they will not be paid for if they are not selected. So, it is only new and unestablished designers that will participate in the contest.

By: Saket Jajodia Sat, 09 Mar 2013 05:42:12 +0000 Harsh, thats not ethics. OK, let me give you a example in your terms. You provide theme customization, right?
Lets say, I need theme customization done, so I will ask you and 10 other people for the same job and I will say I will pay to only the one I like and rest go home with empty hand and if you are one of those who went with empty hand then how you will feel?

Hope you got what I am trying to say. And one more thing those big companies are not fool that they pay like hundred thousand dollars (even more) just for a logo instead of doing a contest. Because they know the real meaning of a logo and they also know designer @ contest can’t do that.

However not everyone (or company) can provide those real design works but there are few who can in low budget also but you need to search such companies or person. And yes even my Co. (Dzire 2 Dzine) provide that service in decent price (if you remember I told you about my Co. last year or so).

If you are still not clear I am working on something which can give an idea but it will take around 3-4 months to complete.

That’s true, and it happens at time.. IN that case, if none of design makes you feel wow.. Simply don’t accept any…. !!

By: Abhay Fri, 08 Mar 2013 19:46:03 +0000 Harsh,

Whatever you have told about crowd sourcing is true. But I doubt whether we can get really good people using it, because all the good and brilliant people are engaged and busy with the work. I do not think there would be much time with those good, brilliant and busy people to take part in a contest until the offered contest is itself from an redound name or brand. I think if we need the best people then there has to be some other way to find rather crowd source. correct me if I am wrong.
