And your point is that not everyone on DA is a professional graphic designer - I find that an insult to all the talented artists on DA. And I emphasize "talented".
Even the oh so wise vulgaris stated "What some places do is they'll collect all the "sketches" done by young artists then take them to a real designer, or have someone there make a logo based on them."
Here's what I find so amusing - while you guys waste your time spewing venom - the really talented artists are still sending me their quotes and portfolios while I send paypal payments to the supposed "amateurs" who rather create and are too sophisticated to participate in your childish smear campaigns.
You have a serious problem with insulting people, mate. :/ Grow up. You won't be able to run a company for very long with the attitude you have now. Let alone one to compete with such a huge and well-known rival.
This is an insult to professional graphic designers. I don't doubt you'll find your desired option for that price, there's always someone willing... but you'll end up with a brand developed through nothing else than amateurness.

You'll find a lot of things like this on public art sites like DA, Art Wanted, ect... Its a company looking for work cheap. What some places do is they'll collect all the "sketches" done by young artists then take them to a real designer, or have someone there make a logo based on them. A lot of times after you have put in the effort they will turn around and go, "Sorry, we went with someone else.. No money for you!"
Your portfolio should suffice as examples of your work. You do not make sketches / proofs to obtain a job- You are hired and the sketching is part of the PAID process. If he wants to hire you he will have to pay a deposit for your time.
Please also consider the amount of research and work and the programs needed to construct a logo. 50$ = 10$ an hour for 5 solid hours of work. Depending on where you live you can obtain a shit-job and make 10$ an hour. For an experienced graphic designer working for a firm, a logo could be pumped out in 5-10 hours (and they are usually busting their ass, showing the logo in meetings, obtaining feedback, doing a back-and-forth discussion with their client). But I guarantee you they are making far more than 10 clams an hour on it.

Tl;DR - This is not a real art job and this guy is trying to take advantage of th'youngins!
Guys like CaboGuyMedia and DeRangedGraphiArtist (obviously the same person) are seemingly just small asshole companies who are using deviantart only to get good ideas and designs at mini prices and then they sell those ideas to their clients at real money… and they are telling the deviant artists that they can be happy with a few lousy bucks and that this would be the global market now… FUCK YOU! If globalisation in your eyes means exploiting talent then we will battle against you. Artists unite against assholes!
Hey, Mr. Unite the peasant's, let's purge the world of users and abusers, aka ~somekindofheaven; you wearing Nikes, carrying an iphone, sporting a Rolex (I rather doubt it), driving a foreign auto? Oh, and those designer hoodies and shoes - read the label, the stuff ain't made here.
Why not write the CEO's of those companies and tell them how badly they are abusing the hardworking folks who toil on the assembly line for peanuts. Those assembly line folks are happy to have a job and are actually improving their lives and the lives of their families. In fact, they are busy kicking your ass and making a name for themselves - and taking your jobs.
I rather doubt they are text-whining about how hard it is to make a living.
So power to the DA artists who design and create and excel wherever they may reside, be it Chile, Jakarta, Russia, Tokyo, Turkey, Los Angeles, Barstow, Albuquerque, Tampa...
What you dolts have totally ignored is, I don't set the prices, duh! The artists openly publish them in their profile... that's what really pisses you off.
So man up and quit your whining.... or lower your standard of living!
Excuse me, but how on earth do you know I'm not working? And what right do you have to trash on me like this? I merely called DeRangedGraphiArtist out on his completely unprofessional and inappropriate treatment of another artist, and me, on this thread. You need to grow up and get a grip and learn that NOTHING gives you the almighty right to treat people like filth.
I'm so looking forward to you and him both getting banned for harassment.
