    Thanks, much appreciated encouragement there.

    seamas: I appreciate the suggestions on where to look for more influence. A challenge I keep running into is finding a typeface that is professional and clear for a logo, but still has a steampunk look....

    I really like this new concept, it definitely speaks "messenger" to me. At first I didn't know how to feel about the backwards e but realized it looks good because it's like they are facing...

    I would say J2 is working the best so far, I like that logo. I would just try and find a matching typeface that goes with it, or maybe even the same font, for using on the name below the emblem/pictoral...

  • 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.
