99 Problems

Here’s why you should buy your logo from [name withheld] instead of using a branding agency.

1. You should buy your logo from [name withheld] because you want variety. You want your logo designed by many many different people who don’t have laborious brand briefs, creative processes and who will ask you minimal questions about your brand (snore). The choice is obvious: 99 options versus 3 tailored options personally designed for you and your brand.

2. You should buy your logo from [name withheld] because you don’t need anything customized. After all, you can order your business cards from Vista Print, and design the poster for your next event in Microsoft word.

3. You should buy your logo from [name withheld] because you don’t have the money. There are more important things to spend money on when you’re launching your business rather than a logo, a colour palette, signage, and marketing materials. Things like desk chairs or ordering catered sandwiches for the office lunch.

4. You should buy your logo from [name withheld] because you don’t have time. The turnaround time to buy your logo on [name withheld] is as fast as lightning. Whoops, taco stand is opening next Tuesday and you don’t have a logo or a website yet? Design agencies take their sweet time because quality is their number one priority and let’s face it, #aintnobodygottimeforthat.

5. You should buy your logo from [name withheld] because you can just hire someone to do it later. First impression, schmirst schmimpression. You don’t need fancy packaging or a luxury business card. You need quick and scrappy and your personality will win em over. Whoever said most businesses fail within the first year hasn’t ever met you.

You should buy your logo from [name withheld].
