I think we live in a time when graphic design is needed more and more, it is needed by more people than ever and Fivver isn't going to knock those that are more professional out of business. We all see small businesses for example with bad branding. Fivver is probably good for those doing student projects or small charities that simply don't have £100 or £1000 to spend and in the past would have just used something like MS Office Word Art. I don't really understand what the problem people have with it. No one is suggesting he BBC or Channel 5 use something like this.
If you own a nightclub you're not going to get everything done on the cheap. So you're not going to be using Fivver. That said if you need something done quite quick in that situation it's probably quite good.
It's going to give some designers a start where if they are good enough can build their own portfolios and build a career for themselves. It's probably better than getting a mate who reckons he's 'good at design' to do it.
It's really only there for those who wouldn't otherwise be paying a designer at all.
