We started out in 1997. In 2004 our company was one of the first to offer ready-made logos on the Net. We called them "pre-designed logos". Our parent company also functions as a traditional, brick-and-mortar design firm.
Our success with ready-made logos attracted interest from designers who asked permission to sell their logos on our platform. In 2011, after seven months of intense development, we answered the call by launching the first version of LogoGround.com. LogoGround is our idea of the perfect logo selling world, based on everything we've learned since 2004. We continue to learn and we continue to fine-tune LogoGround, constantly making improvements and adding features as we go. Much of the credit goes to our community of designers for their help in shaping the site!
Graphics Factory CC is the parent company. The company was registered in 2008 in South Africa. Yes, we are based way down on the scenic South Coast of South Africa. LogoGround, like our other web sites, was built from the ground up to be as international as possible, with online systems refined over the past decade. We serve designers and clients across six continents. We are still holding out for Antarctica!
To help logo designers across the globe earn according to their abilities, regardless of their circumstances or opportunities.
LogoGround was founded by Andre le Roux. Andre holds a bachelor's degree in fine art and was involved in fine art education for five years before moving into design. Andre actively participates in LogoGround as a logo seller.
Andre is assisted by a small team of in-house designers and admin staff.
Quality, Quality, Quality
We believe that a quality web site with quality logos and quality support needs very little else. No gimmicks or expensive ad campaigns to attract as many visitors as possible. Quality has always had a way of marketing itself, never more so than now. Advances in search engine algorithms and social media means that the Net has become really good at pushing the best stuff to the top. Our focus on quality starts with treating designers fairly. We pay designers 100% commission on their sales - after all, the designer is doing all the work! Happy designers is the first, crucial step to high quality logos.
Unfortunately our emphasis on quality means that we decline many, many logos. If you designed something, took the time to submit it and had it declined, we apologize! We would love for you to continue trying. We believe that a laser-focus on quality is the best way to make LogoGround worthwhile for our logo clients, which is the best way to make sales, which is the best way to make LogoGround worthwhile for you.
