  • Places to find freelance briefs

    Does anyone know of any good websites for finding paid work? I need something to bolster my portfolio with a bit of variation but I want to avoid crowd sourcing sites. Are there any websites that you can pitch for briefs?

    Personally I would suggest pounding the pavement. Talk to some local business owners, they might have something they were thinking of doing but haven't put into action, sometimes that's all it takes.

      Word of mouth is the best advertisement.

      I've tried online sites (elance, odesk, even this site) and have had zero luck. I've noticed that a lot of people aren't willing to spend much money on design work. I can't tell you how many postings I've seen on odesk that have a budget of like $20 and want tons of work.

      I mean, if you are just looking for portfolio work and don't need the money, you may want to consider them. They haven't worked out for me though...

          Hopefully OP posts back soon if he has a solution. I recently (last week) abandoned a new install of InDesign CC 2017 for our old version of CS4 for the same reason as OP, unworkable documents. CS4 appears...
