Get Ready! [If you like freebies, read me]

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 21, 2008, 8:42 PM

First, thanks for all the love on BeauCoup Apparel. I really appreciate all your comments. And it was inspired by you guys due to that recent poll of mine.

That poll also inspired something I've been thinking about the last month. I saw theCHAMBA do this and I thought it was a great way to show love back to the people that support one with awesome comments and critiques.

I would like to introduce BATTLE OF THE BUZZ!

What is it?
It is a free design piece by me for you for gratis... meaning free.

How does it work?
I'll post a journal entry saying "B.O.B - SESSION 1 / [BLANK] " after the "/" symbol I'll replace the [BLANK] and put a word like, "Business Cards" or "Logo" or "Tshirt" or "Poster" etc (I'm sure you get my drift). ***The first THREE (3) people to BUZZ (comment) my journal win!***

Why only three? Isn't that a bit lazy?
Not really. I have tons of work now, so I just wanted to give back to the dA community. Specially you watchers and friendships I have really grown to love.

Design Requirements?
Well, everything within reason. I have everyright to refuse a project if it doesn't seem feasible. But yes, AFTER you "BUZZ" me on the appropriate journal entry and I acknowledge you as a winner, you will either NOTE me or comment on that journal what you'd like. I prefer you comment on the journal. Please ask for something that you need. Not just anything for no reason.

Why the categories?
There are different deviants with different needs. So, if you need bizcards, then wait til there is a B.O.B. for business cards.

When will this happen?
I'm working on some projects now, so I would say THURSDAY, JAN 24 will probably be the first one. I won't say what though. Depending on how it goes, I'll try doing one every 1-2 weeks.

This is whack. It might not be a good idea.
That's why I want to try one to see how it works.

Folks, everything within reason. Example: website? I won't do all your pages, maybe JUST a splash page. Something simple and easy. "No me puedo matar haciendo diseño de gratis!!!" (translation - I won't kill myself doing freebies) But I'll try to help somehow.

I can change the rules whenever and for any reason. If you win ONCE (1) you CANNOT win again. In order to receive your complimentary design, you must agree to the above and below. By commenting during the BATTLE then you are agreeing to these. I won't come hunting you down at your house with two big dudes named Vinny & Butch to give you cement shoes if you stiff me somehow, don't worry. But I won't forget.
• Print & Stationary: I can suggest vendor to print, but once printed mail me some samples. If it's not possible at all then its ok
• Posters: If you print one, print me one too! fair enough I think.
• Website: Simplicity but elegance. Enough said. If you need hosting, I can also provide that, so if I design your site, at least let me host it! About $5/month for some serious space and bandwidth. Details later.
• TShirt: If you need a shirt design, all I ask is that you buy it using BeauCoup Apparel. I really don't make much on that, but the picture you take with it on will be awesome. The shirt brand, American Apparel, is really the best in my eyes.
• Type-Treatment/Logo: Again, if it's too complicated (seems like it'll take to much time) then I probably won't do it. As of now, I start at about $600 for a nice logo design from me so it's a nice chunk of time.

Enough said. Sorry for being a pain. I just want to make sure everything is said. I'm excited to give back something. PLEEEEEASE let me know your thoughts if you think it's worth it or not.

Sounds like a great idea! A bit sad there's nothing I need at the moment, but if I do need anything, I'll participate ~

Awesome t-shirt designs too. All I need now is some money :3
