I know this is a controversial topic, but I would really like the input of designers as to why I should pay a specific designer instead of a group of online designers. (I won't name any sites) I understand the money aspect, in which it takes away from the money of the design community, but from my perspective I save money, and I'm just starting a business and can't afford to pay a huge amount for a design I'm not certain to like. I plan on paying $700 to get a design input from over 150 designers on a site. With such wide range, I am almost guaranteed to get a design I like. If I pick a specific designer, I might only be charged lets say $300-$400, but I wouldn't have nearly as much choices, I might not like the design, and I would lose my deposit if I don't end up picking that design. (most designers ask for a deposit percentage) Can designers please give me some input on this? I would be happy to help support the designer industry but I see it as such a huge disadvantage to me in terms of end product. I'm all ears though.
