99Designs launches Swiftly: where a design change is $15 an hour

99Designs, the crowd sourced design firm is now launching Swiftly a crowd sourced design-fixer firm. Billed as a place where you can get a title changed on a business card, a tweak done to a photo, headlines changed on websites, vectorizing images and other simpler tasks (provided the original fonts & layout documents are available), the idea is already unappetizing to many designers.
      Perhaps one can set this work up so that one does several little tweak-jobs within an hour thereby getting up to a regular wage. It could be something for the unpaid design intern to do at night. Bonus! Imagine all the portfolio work you can claim!
