From time to time, I get worried about overseas competition. But lately I'm starting to find customers who understand the value of personalized branding and they're happy to pay for a unique design. It doesn't take much effort to overcome the the outsourced quality. It seems the over exuberance of cheap design has flooded the market with poo-poo that people are getting tired of.

Most of the offshore companies are getting projects from a middle man companies. As a cost cutting strategy, and to simplify the design cycle they show some templates to their customers, convenience them without mentioning the cost and benefits of custom design and send the work to offshore designers. I believe for this reasons, any of the designers you had seen might have templates in their portfolio. But now this issue is global, not only with the outsourcing firms.
