I've been a graphic designer for 15 years and in my circles we have a chart.

It is a pie divided in to three parts, each labeled 'good', 'fast' and 'cheap.'

Below the circle it says 'Pick Two.'

-You can scan templates online that you can then modify to fit your needs, which might be a cheaper (but more time for you) way to do this.

The firm recently redesigned website, letterhead, everything and used a design firm to do so. I wasn't privy to most of the discussion between the firm and the designers, but i did peek at some of the initial questions they asked the PR committee to answer in the initial phases of design. Pasted below, though it sounds like from the initial post the OP isn't wanting to invest too much here. Which is why i suggested some online templates to modify.

01. How would you describe your business and what it does?
02. Who is the target audience or intended market?
03. Who are your main competitors?
04. What makes you different from your competitors?
05. How long have you been in business?
06. How many employees do you have?
07. Where is your business primarily run from?
08. How would you sum up your business in 6 words or less?
09. What keywords best reflect your business?
10. Do you currently have a logo, if so, how long have you had it?
11. If you do have an existing logo, why are you changing it now?
12. What type of logo do you require?
13. What is the exact wording for your logo?
14. Is there a tagline to accompany the logo?
15. Do you have existing brand colours?
16. Where do you intend to use the logo?
17. Is there a primary use for the logo?
18. What logos do you find appealing and why?
19. What logos do you find unappealing and why?
20. What does the logo need to say about your business?
21. What images/icons/symbols do you think best represents your business?
22. What timeframe will you require the logo within?
23. What is your budget for this project?
24. Would you like further design services, incorporating your new logo?
25. Any additional comments?
26. What typefaces / colours do you like?
27. How many initial concepts would you like?

Buzzkill on potentially one of the best graphical threads of the year

Seriously, I had a great trade with this member, and wish him the best. If I had any GD (or even Photoshop) skills, I'd help you out.

Can I draw something and scan it? (This could get ugly...)

Eh I was trying to be helpful, not a buzzkill. Getting answers to at least a few of these questions would focus anyone able to help. Otherwise this could turn into the posting equivalent of asking if anyone at the bar can drive you home at 2am instead of just calling a cab.

Being from OK, I completely understand everything you just said.

lobo_hacker, who would submit something but doesn't want to be made fun of by the very person asking on a sportscard message board for said designs and seems to be expecting a level of quality that you typically have to pay for up front

Well he gave no specifications and I asked for feedback, so WTF? He can keep his card. I see that there are a ton of people willing to work with him on this.
