I recently used it for two projects:
- logo design
- illustrations for a children’s book
I’m very happy with the logo designs, but was frustrated with the process. My designer had trouble understanding English, so online communication was difficult. I tried to use simple words and embedded my messages with image examples.
Children’s Book Illustration
By the time I got anything back from my illustrator, for the children’s book, I accepted the work right away and ended it. I guess being called “sir” one too many times gave me the impression that trying to communicate further might be frustrating for both of us. I feel certain that both parties knew I was a female but both addressed me as “sir”. That, and some very broken sentences, didn’t give me confidence in their ability to understand any requests I had for revisions. Although the work was good, I would have preferred one or two revisions, but it just wasn’t worth it, and I paid a fair price even for what I got. Still, I’m just not certain I’ll use Fiverr again.
How about you?
