    Question What's the name of that site where...

    What's the name of that site where graphics designers and unfortunately, interns, respond to offers / bids on designing [especially] logos and things of the sort for companies or individuals? (I only say interns because they are largely taken advantage of..)

    When you surf the site, you can often see low-res samples of the work..

    PM if you know... Thanks!

    It's actually kind of sad. You get 50 people bidding on one project and then it's almost works out free to the prospect client. The whole point of it I guess... providing the customer with the best for the lowest while forcing everyone to be competitive. Competition is always good though.

    It's definitely time to start some sort of virtual union for graphic designers. There's a graphic designers guild, but from what I can see, they don't do that much or have alot of participation.

    It's damn sad that lawyers get paid more than we do. The balance of knowledge is no different really - we must learn the trade and then be creative constantly. That's truly something that takes talent. And therefore, we should be paid well for it. But it has to start somewhere...

    Just my thoughts. =)
