We’d be remiss if we didn’t use Fiverr to customize our theme for this brand spanking-new blog. The theme we chose, Memoir, has a very open feel and a unique bookmark-like menu on the left. Unfortunately, there is an area of fixed size for the logo. It fit the word MEMOIR perfectly, but FIVERRLICIOUS was going to be a tight squeeze.
We went back to our favorite logo artist, dinzo_w, aka Dean, who carefully crafted letters of gleaming silver and gold. He also did our logo for BestOfFiverr.com. He says, “I try my best to bring you closer to pure awesome, with awesome designs woven from the strings of my heart using unbelievable skills.”
We’re going to leave it at that before we overdose on the A-word. But we enjoy working with Dean and you will, too.
Daniel Todorov is a experienced professional graphic designer (you can see his portfolio here) who, for a very limited time, is accepting simple Fiverr gigs under his wizawaza ID. We have a website in development (catswithcancer.com) and after seeing the crispness and clarity of his work for animal causes, we gave this Fiverr a go. Do check out his previous work — the images are stark, the messages powerful.
We forwarded a set of photos of our own cancer kitty and a description of the website. For the rest, he had a free rein. He chose a heart theme.
The deliverable was a .tif file and contained three versions of the logo. This one we liked best:
This gig gets four paws up!
When our jaded adult eyes first fell on this gig, it seemed a bit like Pippi Longstockings on acid. It must have been the wig, because the smile is serene.
What is there to say on the subject of fairies? Tall, short, plump, slender, redhead, blonde or brunette, they come in every shape, size and color imaginable. One feature, though, is a constant: the magic wand.
Fifi the Pink Fairy wields her star-tipped scepter in the service of the greater good, bringing joy and wonder — and those high-wattage pink braids — to bear on the problems that face everyday people like you and me. Such as, for instance, promoting your website.
When the day is done and a weary fairy returns to her California abode to refill on pixie dust, she pauses for a moment to reflect on her cross-country odyssey.
“I was born and raised in New York City. I started drawing when I was just 12 years old, born with a passion to draw everything. I am a sketch artist, and have been drawing people in fairs, block parties, parks and birthdays for 4 years now. Moving to California made me believe in changing myself and trying new things, so I decided to dress up a fairy for Halloween. I walked around my local mall and children just started running to me and hugging me thinking I was a real fairy. So I said to myself, why don’t I sketch and be a fairy at the same time? Kids began to love my sketches even more.
“Whenever a little boy or girl gets a sketch from me now I tap my magic wand on their heads and say `Count to three and close your eyes, and all your wishes will come true.’ Making little children laugh and seeing them believe in something so amazing makes my day.”
