    Have you guys ever considered using a crowdsourcing site for your project? It might be worth a go if you're a charity. I know Unicef and WWF recently did something like that...

    As a majority community of professionals, we're not particularly fond of the crowdsourcing fad. Besides the issue of exploiting people and having a negative impact on the industry (not to mention the suspect issue of automatically handing over copyrights to any idea or design you submit), these sites are frequented by amateurs, and as such the quality of the work leaves a lot to be desired. If you're getting a new building that's costing £13.75m, the last thing you want is an amateurish logo stuck on the front. That would be a little like paying for an expensive wedding cake, then sticking some Poundland figures on top :icon_biggrin:

    Thanks paul, I've done some research and I see what your saying! Shame there's not a more ethical or elitist approach to it going on. It's like there's no quality control whatsoever.
