Designer, Sweetpopcore, was easy to communicate with and I feel, because he/she was able to understand and communicate in ENGLISH, made it a lot easier from beginning to end. Didn't try to get "cute" and stayed on track.
It is imperative to COMMIT to giving ongoing feedback to the designer and in SIMPLE terms. I stayed involved thanks to Zack (99designs) telling me and although I was over vigilant, I know it paid off.
What you put in you will get back! I gave over 125 feedbacks thru this process.
Thank you Sweetpopcore and I hope we will collaborate again in the future.
