  • 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...

          Thanks for the feedback! I'll play with ways to differentiate DC from hue (hyphenation, perhaps?).

          I am about to graduate college in December and I won't be able to use a lot of the resources that my school has, such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

          Yeah you're right. Think it might have to do with me being lazy and bad at logo design. Just wanted to do something easy, simple and that looks good.

          Funny how you mention you didn't want it to read D-Chew cuz that is exactly what I got from it. More so with the first than the second.

          I sort of rather favor the second one anyway. It has...
