I've been a member of the community for a while now, but mostly as a admirer of design rather than a designer myself. I've taken the past few months learning design and working on a project, but I just can't seem to hone in my concept the way I envision it in my head— especially being fairly new to design. I was wondering if you guys might have a suggesting on possibly finding an up and coming designer or a designer that might be willing to help at a reasonable price. I am not looking for free or spec work, but rather nothing too expensive. I only have around $200 to spend being a student, but I know the value of design and want to make sure the project starts off on the right foot.
I know saying "I know the value of design..." and then only having only $200 to spare is a bit contradictory, but just looking for a possible helping hand. If the only answer is to save more money or roll with what I've got then I guess I'll do that. Just wanted to see what a community I value had to say.
