Step Right Up for Your 5ive Minute Logo

Von Glitschka is a talented illustrator, with more more than a few well-known names amongst his clients. But times are tough all over. Hence the launch of his recent initiative, 5ive Minute Logo. What’s it all about? In his words: “Why shouldn’t logo design be instantly gratifying? It should be! Life’s too short to waste time on complex and costly logo design projects. I’ve solved this problem while making the whole process fast and easy!” Well, thank goodness for that. Given the bleak economic climate, I guess we should anticipate more initiatives like this in 2013.

The only thing that makes me wonder is an item in the FAQ — Question: "What if I don't like what you do?" Answer: "We already know you're a cheap-ass so more than likely you won't like our idea. Life is full of gambles though so live on the edge, toss your 5ive spot in the ring and lets rock and roll!" Hmm, that's blunt but he does have a point.

Not sure if I want to hate this project or love it. It's a cool idea he's giving essentially $1 a minute services but as satirical as the text and website is for a designer, it might make him sound bitter and dry to the people he's actually targeting.

Who wants to put $5 down and say this project was started after a lengthy logo project with a bad client?

Ridiculous! considering it's coming from a professional logo designer.

I was thinking the same, if not for the point of knowing what the quality of his ideas were :p

I was tempted too! It's only $5. I'm guessing you get what you pay for.

Have any of you actually read the commentary on the site itself? My tongue is firmly in cheek.

Most understand this snarky site and take it for what it is. We've all worked with cheap-ass clients so now they have a perfect fit for their aesthetic. If someone is going to get all offended by the site than fine let them get offended if they can't discern something that is clearly intended to be humorous.

Perhaps my text went too far in its attempt to not give away the humorous intent of the site? But I think most got the joke.

We don't care about that - we just want to know how much you've made so far. ;-)
