Abstract Influence is launching a new project in a week or so. Let me entertain you with the details. Basically, we are going to give businesses and other clients a way to recruit all of our great talent that is contained in this community.

For those of you that are interested and would like to be involved, you will be able to have people that are looking for A quality designers and coders, hire you directly from this site. Some of us are much to busy with our own lives and jobs to participate and that's understandable. But for the rest of us, it's like having your portfolio and bank roll build it's self. You don't have to look for the clients, they find you.

We will be setting up a new category on the forum specifically for this project. We will need a list of talents in this field that you are proficient with, from each language you know fluently, advanced, or novice. From each graphics oriented program you have, and can use. How well you design logos, vectors, fliers, brochures, business cards, web sites, paintings, illustration, animation, television commercials, the works. If you can do it, you let us know, and your skill level at it.

Each persons skills, availability, and expected average turn around time will be posted in this forum, to not only let clients know what we as a community can offer, but who can do the job they are asking for, the most efficiently, with the best quality, and the quickest.

If you are interested in this opportunity and would like to be involved in this project, vote Yes I would like to be involved. If you are opposed to this or can not participate for whatever reason vote, I will not be involved.

Comments, questions, the works, send em at us, and we'll give u an answer :)

It was Shade's idea, I think it could be a good deal for everyone. It may take a bit for it to take off, but it can't hurt to try it.


Voted yes.

It would be interesting to see why they voted no. Only because the more ideas we have for this, the better it could be.

As Shade said, they probably won't be a huge demand for this at first, it would be something that takes time but it doesn't cost you anything to do it. Just let your portfolio do the work for you and wait for a client but using AI to push it out better.

Voted yes, sounds like a great idea. Here's an idea I'll just throw out. I've seen websites where clients can post a job (example: client needs a logo for their new company) and then designers would post a bid and the client would be able to view the designer's portfolios and make a choice. Not sure if this is what you already have in mind. Just a thought.

Yeap, as shade said, our idea was very similar to that.

Keep the ideas rolling in, we want to make this the best system as we can. Any other ideas (especially you freelancers) that you've experienced in the past that we should be aware of?

the question on the poll is worded kind of vaguely. someone who doesn't have time to take on extra work or just doesn't do this type of work would vote no. but that wouldn't mean that he/she doesn't think it's a good idea.

with that said i voted yes, and i think it's a good idea.

Yeah skate the point of the poll was just to see how many people wanted to be involved. My guess is somebody just voted no to be unique really 2 be honest. Or it was cone and that's self explanatory lol. I would assume, if they thought it was a good idea but diddnt have the time they'd explain that in a post :shrug:

Voted Yes - not sure where I could help if at all with all the gurus on here, but freelancing a few years I've experienced a couple things...will help if I can, even if it's just consulting ideas / opinions to get something accomplished etc.
