    Im a graphic design student, and as part of my course, require some real-life projects. I can offer this paid or for free, but I'm offering it for free as long as its within reason.
    Im particularly welcome work in corporate identity, brochures,leaflets, menus etc. Please get in touch with basic info about you/your business/your requirement and I'll email you a brief questionnaire to find out more about what you need.
    Please Note:
    *As it is free work, no unreasonable demands please!!
    *Tutors will check this project so legitimate projects only please!!

    Sigh, and so it begins (again)…

    Don't offer to do work for free. It damages the industry that you're hoping to eventually work in and also devalues your own worth.

    Also, coming onto a forum for FREELANCERS WHO HAVE BILLS AND MORTGAGES TO PAY tends to rub them up the wrong way.

    Try charging £10 per hour minimum. Otherwise you might as well get a paper-round. Sorry if I come across a tad harsh but you'll understand if and when you get a job in this industry or go freelance yourself.

    P.S. You'll also find that clients who pay next to nothing are the biggest cowboys going and should be avoided like the plague.

    Yeh...agreed - please please please do not offer work for free - especially publicly. Think about it...on a small scale, anyone who now comes on here looking for a designer wont bother thinking about using one of us who charge.....now multiply that ;)

    If you avhe tog et work for a school project/college/uni etc atleast offer your services free to a company "behind the scenes" or privately in other words ;)
