    Hi Jen,

    I’ll admit it, I’m a lurker. I would normally want to say quiet, but since you have a link in this post that relates to my profession, I wanted to pass along my own link.

    Thanks, Jeff! Very informative piece.

    Let me be clear — I’m a design junkie and have seen the results of both talented, informed design and cut-rate “make us a logo” design. Like anything else, you get what you pay for and the former is definitely better, especially for a business that would like to be taken seriously.

    But for those of us who fake it until a pal gives us a masthead as a birthday gift? This at least gives us access to willing designers at a price we can afford.

    I would also admit that my posting skills suck. Feel free to delete one or the other.
