    Hello,
    I started a new website bought a fiverr logo gig.
    The designer made the following logo as inspiration from freelancer logo.
    We haven't yet decided on the font and it would be great if you can suggest something.
    Please comment any advice and modifications that will help.

    Maybe coming to a forum for designers with a logo you got from Fiverr and then asking for free design advice is not the best idea.

    I am sorry Scotty. I just googled for logo forums and this came up. Thought could do with some professionals help.

    Typography for a logo isn't something you just slap on at the end, it should be thought about alongside the main mark as it will typically feed into the rest of the branding. What you have here suits the logo I suppose but I'd be looking at some fonts that can work in other situations – blog post headings, on a business card, in an annual report – basically anything where you need to represent your brand (which you're unlikely to get from a cheap logo gig) in a textual format.

    honestly... you're paying a fiver for what would normally cost 100's if not 1000's to do by a professional designer in the UK.... then you come asking for free advice when you say you're still working with the designer from fiverr (a concept that we all pretty much detest).

    Sorry but I'm just not inclined to help on this one.

    Thank you Paul.
    And as for the cheap option, I am a student and every penny I spend is from my pocket money and that d limited.

    As of now, the logo is for the website temporarily and I have other expenses for the website.

    That's understandable, in contradiction to what a lot of designers will tell you a logo isn't that important, at least not when you're just starting out. You're better off spending money on marketing and attracting customers in order to get a business off the ground. Then come back here when you need a rebrand. :)

    No worries siddardha. :D
    Nothing against you.

    Fiverr and similar sites are pretty much detested by professional Designers because they kind of devalue what we do and if you do get a logo through them then there's a pretty high chance that it's not actually been designed for you, rather just stolen from another designer and sold as their own work which is a very common practice on there.
    If you Google it you'll see.

    It's kind of like buying a dog from a puppy farm and then asking a forum of vets to treat it for you for free when it gets sick.

    I didn't know that Scotty. I just knew that I could get logos made for cheap there.
    My designer is good. He is taking all the suggestions and improving the logo.
    However, he never discusses the logo or how it can be made better. And I understand that I cannot expect more for what I pay.
    That's why I resorted to researching how a good logo should be and am trying to improve it.
    It would be really helpful if you could make any suggestion towards its improvement.

    By the way your website looks great Scotty. I didn't even knew it was made using WordPress until I used builtwith.com

    Thank you for the advise Paul. Any suggestions for this logo now? It would be really helpful for me.

    And the Kitchen angel logo in your portfolio is very creative.
