    Designer

    Thought ad give this a bump as the other guys thread went a bit..... "ski-wiff" (now thats a word!!!)
  3. yeah man i think what you've said is the general consensus.......... it just seems a shame really.
  4. yeah as i said, but if you are a serious band and believe in your music, you'll want not only to sound professional but come accross as a professional act with the relevant promo material that goes along with it............ you don't see.............. er, the rolling stones handing out shitty little flyers in the street, altho they have the money to spend on big expensive marketing "PLOYS" the little things make the differance in smaller bands aswell. The likes of the little kicks, a band who appear to be doing well for themselves, have promo material that looks professional, but i bet they don't go to an expensive design studio to get the work done.
  5. Have you been a freelancer long? if not i suggest u don't just stick to bands, try the obvious ones like clubs, pubs, restaurants etc. get your name on some freelance forums, and put your cv into any and all local design/media/IT companys advertising your services but try and leave an impression and give a follow up call. seriously theres loads and alot of them often look for freelancers when work loads get a bit heavy. Freelancing can be very financially rewarding if you can be assed to go out and chase the work, although experience is a must! although if you've been a freelancer for a while.......... i probably just sounded patronising as fuck.... sorry! i plan on going full time freelance once i get a few more years experiance and give up my dream of being a big posing rock star :L anyway good luck.
  6. Yeah i gave this a go a few months ago with not much interest (i have been a qualified graphic designer with working experiance for 2 years) which is a shame really, no one really seems that interested evan tho i personally think it shows a degree of professionalism in a band ( outwith the music ) the problem is that more and more people study graphic design or some creative craft, and with music being a creative industry ( even for the smallest bands ) they can all get a friend of a friend etc. to create some cool logo, illustartion, website etc for next to nothing........ for a serious freelance graphic designer it seems very hard to offer a better rate then the bands can get through their own contacts. i now basically just do freelance work for bands etc. when asked, so i can just get a bit extra beer money and stick to my day job for the .. erm. cough!! "real money" Just my thoughts Ta
