    Here's a barter opportunity I found. What a deal!!!


    I have a small, growing bath and body business (soon to add gourmet teas and coffee)with numerous request for private labeling services. I need a graphic artist to design my logo(s)/label(s) (one for bath and body/one for tea/coffee). In exchange, I will advertise your service on my website, all of our products and give you 100% of my private label businesses. If you are a small, growing company, this is a great opportunity for us both! Please email me so we can start soon!!!!


    ok so obviously we all like to ridicule idiots who think their business is god's gift to designers, but i posted this ad for another reason too. all the people who post threads on this site asking about whether they "should" automatically get their website on their customer's products that they design- can take note of this ad. here the business owner thinks that putting your name on your designs is such a bonus that providing it to you can be instead of payment. Personally, i don't agree, but it lets you know what the mentality of some clients is about your right to include your biline on your designs.

    Maybe if they'd throw in some free bubble bath...

      What does that mean? That you own their business? Or is that an exclusive contract for their work?

        i think it's an exclusive contract that you get to do all their private label work for free. Hooray!

          Well, wouldn't that be a given? I mean why would the bath business give out this great deal to designer (me) and then pay someone else to do half their work? I'd want exclusive rights for all the bubble bath I'm going to get!

            I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

            Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

            In terms of real world critique, if...

            Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

            Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

            The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
