    I would echo Sacha's comments below, there are a lot of marketplaces already, many of which are curated (including http://onsite.io which I run).

    Two problems I can envision for you:

    Attracting users to yet another platform - especially as the top talent often have options already (word of mouth / existing marketplaces / existing personal networks).

    Persuading clients that you should be trusted to assign them that talent. Have you asked them if that is something they want? Curated shortlists maybe, but just assigning a designer, without a portfolio review, chat about timings, understanding of the job feels unrealistic.

    The final point I would make - $450 for a logo will indeed attract a "certain level of quality" - but probably not the one you had in mind.
