Logo Design Guru

Logo Design Guru (, the Web’s top destination for logo, brochure and web design services for small businesses and startups, received a positive mention in a recent “Cranky Consumer” column in the Wall Street Journal. The article, which provides a snapshot review of several web-based logo design services, was published in the July 16 edition, and recognized Logo Design Guru for its ease of ordering, value and customer service.

In the article, columnist Peter King noted: “Within five hours of ordering our $99 package from, we received a phone call from the company giving us the name of our designer and her phone number. Overall, we were very impressed with the company’s customer service.”

To compare the overall experience of working with several web-based logo design services, a reporter at the Journal contacted several design providers, posing as a fictitious company named DiskFix Solutions that “helps people transfer or retrieve data from hard drives,” and ordered a logo, providing little other input except to state that he wanted the logo to look “high-tech”.

The resulting logo and the story behind the creation of that logo is featured on the Logo Design Guru blog, LogoTalk, a great source for branding and small business tips:

“It used to be cost-prohibitive for start-up companies to get a professional logo. But, now we enable these small businesses to boost their stature in the marketplace by designing a logo, brochure and website for them at a cost they can afford.”

The Journal selected Logo Design Guru’s starter service, the “99-er” package, which costs $99. This includes an original full-color concept, one subsequent revision, final digital files emailed within 24 hours of finalization, and free incorporation of the business. Additional services are available, offering more creative options, additional review cycles, custom stationery, Flash animations, business cards, and custom website design.
