    Hi DN,

    I just started this new community for my email list. The goal is to give freelancers a place to share interesting links, news, and what they're working on. Sorta like r/freelance without the ban-happy mods.

    Would be quite interested in hearing what DN would like to see from a community like this. Please share your thoughts. Cheers.

    -Robert

  • Posted to The Designer's Guide to Getting More Leads from Your LinkedIn Profile, Jul 18, 2020

    I took a look at some awesome designer profiles and wrote up some of the best tactics they used to create a profile that stands out. Thought I'd share!

    Includes examples from designers: Kurt Elster, Val Geisler, Benjamin Manley, Chris Do and a few more.

    There's a mixture of exclusive jobs (we're running a remote job fair in the next couple weeks). We also spend a couple hours daily hand-screening jobs from every site so customers have everything in one place.

    Do you have to decide on one of those? What if you're doing it to stay indie, work on fulfilling work and make a great living? Is that too greedy?

  • Posted to How to sell full branding projects instead of logos?, in reply to Mitch Malone , Dec 20, 2018

    Thank you that helps. What's the difference between a "brand package" problem and a "logo" problem in your experience?

  • Posted to A guide to RFPs I made for designers, Jun 01, 2018

    This is a guide I put together yesterday on how to win RFPs, featuring quotes from Mike Monteiro, Kurt Elster and more. RFPs aren't the sexiest, or most well understood way to get projects - but as Mike's quote indicates, knowing how to use them strategically is important... so I wanted to put something out there that could help. Feedback welcome!

    PS. The illustration used at the top of the guide's background is from http://kit8.net

  • Posted to Ask DN: Where to buy illustrations for websites? , Jun 01, 2018

    A couple I've seen: - http://kit8.net - https://creativemarket.com/Manudesign

    There's good stuff on almost all the big stock photo/illustration websites the trick is finding it.
