  • 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.
    Design is not decoration.

      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...

          Have to disagree. Knowing the paper IS important. Especially where this is a heavy grade hot-pressed watercolor paper.
          Just a quick search tells me the stuff has a unique texture, is very absorbent,...

          The software used to create logos is between your ears. The computer just makes the files. Normally you would use Adobe Illustrator for creating logos, but it's just a tool. No drag and drop functions....

          I like the look, very nice, very clean... but the circle looks like a motorcycle tire to me, which makes it look more like a bike repair shop, not cars.
