What an experience its been designing my website. Trying to design a header was something, first I tried designing a header using Microsoft Word. That was a disaster! It’s kind of like trying to draw people and drawing stick people. I really wanted to do it myself to save the money, but I realized my time was worth more and for $5 I could get someone to do it for me. So I set out on a journey to find a graphic artist on Fiverr to help me out.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Fiverr, it is an excellent site where people sell their services for $5. You would be shocked to see what people will do for $5.
I found several graphic artist who did logo’s and headers. I checked out their ratings, reviews as well as some of their samples. Only some actually provided samples, so I found one that I liked and decided to use his services. He sent me three different styles after a few days, none which I liked, so I asked for a few revisions. After one week I didn’t hear from him, so I sent him an email, I still didn’t hear from him so I sent a couple more emails. He finally responded letting me know his computer wasn’t working and he didn’t know when it would be back up. He gave me a refund which I thought was quite nice considering he did actually do the work.
So I was back on a journey to find someone else that could create a header for me. I found another graphic artist who also had positive reviews. I told him what I wanted and voila, what you see above is his design. By the way he completed this header in one day, which really impressed me.
