    AN AMAZING ILLUSTRATOR. Great technique, eye for detail and just beautiful work. Thank you SO SO much for helping my dream to come true.

    Contest Brief:Here is a snippet of a section of a new kids book that is being self-published and I am looking for an illustrator who would like to help me bring the story to life through beautiful illustrations. In this contest, I am only needing you to create a one page illustration that would sit alongside the text below. In this childrens book, this is essentially two pages. The characters are GingerBread People (the boy must have two buttons and the girl must have one button) and they are on the edge of a deep, dark forest on their way to a huge brown mountain. There is no restrictions as to the artist tools in which you use, it just has to be something you will be proud of and are willing to share the world. It also has be able to be printed into a colourful children's book. Once a winner has been chosen, they will then be engaged to complete 16 pages for me to illustrate the entire book. To be negotiated at the time of engagement. From the book, choose a scene below and show me your stuff: "They filled up their packs and headed out towards the great mountain which loomed in the distance. It looked like it was too far away to ever get there, but they were determined to try. They walked for days over the grassy hills. One day they came to the edge of a deep forest. “It’s pretty dark in there, Benny,” said Rose. “It sure is, but we’ll find our way,” said Benny. They held hands and walked into the forest. When they felt scared they would whistle and that would make them feel better. After they had passed through the forest they began to hear a rumbling sound in the distance. They walked on and the sound got louder. “It’s a river!” said Rose. They came to a steep gorge and peered over the edge. White-water roared below them. “I wouldn’t want to get dunked in there! It looks as white as milk,” exclaimed Benny. Near them was a rickety old wooden bridge. “I don’t think we can walk across that,” said Benny. --------------------------------------------------------------------- I can't wait to see your submissions....... The production of this book is a dream of mine and I can't wait for you to be part of it.

    Great Illustrator. Good communication and very professional. Definitely hiring again.

    Contest Brief:Looking for a series of "banners" for my site. They will be in a collage together so they must be unified. I want them cute and illustrative. MUST BE VECTORS OR LARGE SIZE 3 large squares 2 small squares 3 horizontal rectangles 2 vertical rectangles All shapes must be designed entirely, they must bleed on all four sides. No white space unless it is incorporated in the design and edges are visually completed by gestalt theory. Content: This is for a small graphic design company doing print and web. Two primary things must be included. 1. Illustration of myself 2. Illustration of my dog Not every illustration needs to include both or either. It can be different images or one giant image broken up. Id like to leave open creativity as far as content. Typography can be included but not required. Maybe incorporate a computer, art etc. We are by the ocean, that could be incorporated. All is not required. Creativity will definitely win over style. Please see attached images. Ive included the company logo, layout of images (subject to change), photos of Dexter and I for styles i like. More upon request. PLEASE NO ANIME!!!

    Decafe was amazing. She really captured exactly what I was looking for in a logo. She was friendly and really easy to deal with. I kept asking for tweaks to the design and she responded positively and nothing was too much trouble. I LOVE my final design.

    Hi Decafe,Marilyn Gachaw here. Since you did such a wonderful job on my real estate business cards, I&quot;m back again.I&quot;m looking for the right designer to take on a branding project for my food hub which will be located in an urban neighborhood. The hub will feature a small neighborhood full service grocery store and a community cafe. I need a logo and business card ASAP! My hub&quot;s initiative is community driven. Our name is &quot;The Eating Well&quot; and my slogan is &quot;your neighborhood access to quality food and services at reasonable prices&quot;. The grocery store will promote a healthy lifestyle by selling fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy and grain products (currently not available in the neighborhood). The community Cafe is an extension of our health driven mission to provide area residents with healthy alternatives to fast food restaurants...My goal for The Eating Well - to become a dynamic &quot;community gathering place&quot;. We will sponsor various community outreach activities with a strong emphasis on healthy living principles to encourage residents to take a proactive approach to their own well-being through a healthy diet. In addition the store/cafe we will also sponsor interactive cooking classes, health seminars, etc... As I mentioned earlier I need a logo and business card ASAP. Sorry for the rush, but we&quot;re in the process of completing our business plan and would like to use our logo on the plan&quot;s cover page, and incorporate it into our video. We also need business cards to help market the business, leave behind contact information and a lasting impression. In the future I will want our logo to transfer to our exterior signage, stationary etc. Although we&quot;re a grocery store/cafe, I&quot;m looking for something creative - contemporary and hip etc.Happy Holidays,Marilyn Gachaw
