bwdsbwds subscriber Posts: 4
We are a group of designers, programmers and marketing executives that have done alot of white label design work for agencies and have just opened our own firm.  The only problem is we need to build our own portfolio.  So in order to do it we are going to do redesigns or full designs of small business sites or collateral pieces for free to build our portfolio.  If you are interested please email us or give us a call.Bill  CEO/Lead Designerwww.bluewavedesignstudio.com</a>

    Hi Bill,Well this will definitely get you some work... though it might make more sense to populate your portfolio (for now) with internal mockup projects. This is just as effective at demonstrating your style and skills (perhaps moreso as you are not restrained by clients` parameters), and takes significantly less time and effort than offering enough pro-bono jobs to fill your portfolio.And while you may make some connections with this approach, those connections will be with the sort of people who expect to get something for nothing (or next to it).  Food for thought.In general, design clients don`t care who you`ve worked for.  What they do care about is what you can show them, and what you can do.All the best,Chanie

    Hi Bill,
    First off, Welcome to the SUN community. I am a very small business that sells toys at the moment through Amazon and Ebay. Although, I would like my own site and have very little knowledge of how to do it on my own. I also already own my domain name. I could hire a designer but I don`t have a big budget. Let me know if you would like to take this opportunity. All I need is a small e-commerce site that allows me to list my items and have a shopping cart for my customers. I could possible maintain it, but I`m not sure if that is possible.
    Let me know thatnks,
    George Sanchez

    I am very excited for you both. The more responses you get the more word of mouth business you recieve. Although I am sad we can`t work together due to your popularity, maybe we could work something out barter/sliding fee scale/2nd born child named after you. I just need some help. Maybe a conversation wil do. Please just call me, when you have a moment.
    P.S. Do you think I `m a stalker?

    I am amazed at the number of people in business whom glass lives at the half empty mark. How about you, scratch my back now and if you scratch my back I`ll tell everyone about my wonderful cure for my back itch. And they`ll tell someone and so on and so on... Anytime you do something for someone you are to never look back unless you are in contract with that person. Otherwise a smile and happy glo is sufficent. And before you say it` Yes you can become rich from making people smile. When I read the posting I was so dam excited. Not because they`re offering their work probono but simply stated "you can attract more bees with honey than you can with vinegar" baby. Need I mention Craigslist or better yet Utube.  I see you smiling now.2sexyhuh2006-11-12 11:5:5

    I think it may be a case of being careful what you wish for.  I`m sure he`s been buried in requests.  This type of work does take some time.
