Website enables graphic designers to showcase their work land gigs
on Friday,April 23,2010 13:04
In an attempt to link companies to graphic designers who are looking for work, Hatchwise has created an online platform for these jobseekers to showcase their work to potential employers.
The company has enlisted a roster of more than 4,000 international designers, who log onto a website and check for employment opportunities. These individuals are challenged to compete for specific gigs in a contest format, as each company is able to select their favorite design for purchase.
This service is intended to give companies the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of artwork instead of relying on one particular agency to develop a design, which could take several attempts. Furthermore, it enables graphic designers to build their portfolio while gaining experience selling their work.
The rate for starting a contest on the website starts a $29, and some employers have received thousands of responses. When a submission is chosen, the company and graphic designer can negotiate a price.
"Seeing your company's new brand through the eyes of scores of designers is an enlightening, and many times exhilarating, experience," said George Ryan, founder of Hatchwise.
