I coach a merry little band of chuckleheads who are going to be banding together to play some soccer tournaments this year, and we need a small logo created for our uniforms. I created the logo we used last year from an SVG I found online, but I would like something a little more professional this year. How would I go about hiring someone to do this, and what could I expect to pay?
Is there anything in the graphic design/logo/whatever world equivalent to rentacoder.com, where I could post the job and have people bid on the job, perhaps by providing samples, and I select the one I like best and hire them? Would Jobs
or craigslist be viable options? If I were to go either of those routes, would posting it as "send me a sample of what you propose in low-res format" be a reasonable request?
When I commission the artwork, what format(s) should I request the finished product in so that we can get the most of it down the road? SVG?
Normally in a job like this this, do I (the client) get full rights to the final product, so that if we wanted to use it again down the line for something else, or tweak it, or whatever, we would be free to do so?
