I am debating weather to do my logo myself and risk looking unprofessional or getting someone who can clean up my sketch and make it look like a professional logo. Will a graphic designer take credit for my sketch and is it for it for me. Please help me decide. P.S. I am not a credit whore lmao.

If you pay someone to do it you could write up a contract that ensures copyright stays with yourself, there are people who will be happy to do that for a one-off fee.

If you do it yourself and post it, there might be people who'll tell you whether it's crap or not, and give you advice on improving it.

Thanks for your reply it was the exact answer I needed everything I needed to know.

In all reality, if you pay a designer to "paint" your logo for you from a sketch, the copyright is still yours, however, they can, and likely will, take credit for the coloring, and any other work outside of your sketch. I know that I personally would take credit for doing the color design, while being sure to give the 'line art' or original sketch credit to the respective artist.

Thank you for answering my question it I didn't know that part. I have since finished my logo and will submit a new trend on vector and would appreciate your insight. Thanks again.
