Since do it yourself websites are not really that expensive, more and more people are thinking of using them. Considering the fact that these days, the fees of professional graphic artists are extremely high, this might make it sound like a good idea.
Come to think of it though, will people really have the ability to save money with the use of these websites or are they just spending them in all the wrong places while making other people who don´t deserve it wealthy? An in depth look at the facts can help with this situation.
The thing about these do it yourself websites is that most of the images that they have are actually from clipart. Some of these websites even go as far as to claim that the images that they generate are original but as it turns out, they are just lying. This is fortified by the fact that the majority of the logos that get rejected by the US patent office come from these do it yourself websites.
Most people think that they can get away with this by placing the icons in different places so that they will look original. This trick does not work on the US patent office though. These designs are still marked as unoriginal designs. The US patent office will have the ability to disqualify the logo and the people who paid these do it yourself logo design websites won´t have the ability to get their money back.
Making a corporate logo requires a lot of hard work. However, all of the hard work will go to waste if the logo is not done creatively and professionally enough. What is sad is that all people can become hard workers but not all people can become sufficiently creative to create a good logo. This is the part where these do it yourself websites can let people down since the quality of the logo that will come out depends on the skill of the person that will use these websites.
