Thoughts on logo commission

I want to have a cool logo but I can’t really justify paying to commission one to my family. Conversely, I’m not going to ask an artist to work for free, because I value their work and don’t want to imply that I don’t. So, how I can I reconcile these seemingly incompatible requirements? I’m not sure, but I’ve been tossing this around: One or more artists submit rough drafts of their ideas, I select one that resonates with me and help the artist develop it, That artist gives me exclusive rights to the design so that there aren’t 43 instances with “my” branding, but The artist keeps all merchandising rights, and I help them advertise stickers, t-shirts, etc.

Beginnings

I launched the Free Radical Mastodon instance on Friday, April 7, 2017. It was approximately the 250th instance in the fediverse and there were about 100,000 users. Today, 6 days later, there are 613 instances and 222,814 users. Make that 223,021. No, 223,050.

We are growing like wildfire.
