I’ve hired webauthors, audio engineers, producers, blog-masters, CEO whiz’s, graphic artists, and others in my quest to be a pro VO.
The other side of that coin is that as a resourceful freelancer wearing many hats, you also have talents and skills in many areas that bring you close to the quality of other freelancers (photo-finishing, audio-editing, social metrics, etc)
And sometimes, you just need a little something, and you need it fast, and the quality is not necessarily a priority, so you do it yourself.
THAT is the concept behind the COOL TEXT: LOGO AND GRAPHICS GENERATOR.
The site is free, offers over 80 different text graphic effects, builds logos, offers customization options, and then it renders your artwork.
Of course, you may have other artwork or graphics programs that offer this feature-set, but this is pretty darn easy and the results can be polished.
You won’t get the level of creative professionalism out of this site that you would from a real graphics artist, so I wouldn’t use this for your VO logo…but like I said… sometimes you just need a little…something.
