    I too enjoy the image, it's stunning an well executed and I have to agree that RH2 makes more sense, but it's a large step away from the usual pop art imagery that RHCP normally uses. This has a jazz...

    While the image and effect is nice, I'm not certain I would say it's not reflective of the call to action. IMHO at first glance I thought it was for some sort of benefit party because the image treatment...

    The text over the tiger's face is hard to read. Can't tell if that's because it's transparent or grungy, or both.

    RH2 makes more sense but the text at the top is illegible.
    I like the treatment of the peppers.

  • health insurance for freelancers?

    I have a sister who is single and is turning 23 this year and will soon be off her dad's insurance. She is currently a freelance graphic artist in NJ ... actually we both freelance individually but I never had to worry about health insurance because I was already married before I started freelancing so I know nothing about choosing one. My sister though is single and would like to help her find affordable health insurance but don't know where to start. I heard about joining some guilds like GAG might help get individuals group rates. She is in basically good health and doesn't smoke. Can somebody recommend a company, a guild, etc. that can help with affordable health insurance?

    Thanks in advance for the advise.

    I could be wrong, but doesn't the new healthcare law allow people to stay on their parents insurance until they're 25?

      Disclaimer: I have NO personal experience with these groups and their insurance plans.

      Freelancers Union
      Media Bistro
      AIGA
      GAG
      Fractured Atlas

      *Note: All have eligibility requirements. Not offered in all States.

      Also, check into getting an insurance agent; Met Life or similar. They can suggest options for your sisters specific self-employment and health circumstances, and help work out what's best.

      Hope this helps some.

        So if you have an AIGA membership, you could be allowed to join a group insurance rate? Does anyone else have experience with this? I'm looking into insurance for myself as well, but have no clue about this stuff.
