DIRECT work only, no dealing with middle-men/managers/directors. Must have DIRECT communication with DESIGNER to discuss all aspects of work including compensation. If you are a company who hires designers then do not bid, only interested in working direct.
Compensation will be negotiated per work/milestone, after extensive good completion of work, it will be possible to consider hourly payment later on.
Looking for someone with high morals, ethics, a real professional who can create great "original" and creative design both in Vector format with Inkscape and Adobe Illustrator and also raster with Adobe Photoshop and Gimp etc.
Will likely be a variety of different projects but most important is good skill in creating all kinds of great graphics, designs etc from small icons or buttons or logos to full page high resolution. Preferred is someone who enjoys creating flashy, colorful, bright/shiny, sleek/smooth elegant designs. Looking to work long-term with someone highly skilled, efficient/fast who can make eye-catching professional designs.
Will be plus if you have FAST internet for easier collaboration with skpe etc....basically we may want to WATCH you work sometimes, this helps me to catch liars who pretend they are the 'designer' when in fact they are a company manager only. So do not think you can pretend you are the real worker and pass on the work to someone else. Working with a company might be arranged but ONLY if you are honest about it upfront and we come to an agreement. So be completely honest in your bidding if you are the direct designer/worker or not.
Other beneficial skills, but NOT necessary: Video editing experience, Video FX, 3D rendering, 3D animation, 3D modeling, Mobile App Design, mockups for Android and iOS or windows mobile etc.
Sometimes for some projects it will help if you own or have ACCESS to Android mobile phones, tablets and/or iOS iPhones, iPad etc...
In this initial TEST PROJECT to evaluate your work, you will be asked to design/create icons and buttons and other graphics for some mobile app for iOS or android.
When you place your bid its fine to show your previous work/portfolio. It will help you to have an 'accurate' hourly rate on your profile, if its too high you might be 'skipped' from being considered even though you may have been happy to work for lower if there's plenty of work to be given you.
Good luck to everyone and happy bidding on this initial test/evaluation project. Thanks!
