Artist needed for t-shirt project May. 16th, 2012 @ 10:33 PM Reply

Hey folks,

I am looking to get something designed to be printed on the back of a t-shirt for the fire department that I serve with and I figure that if anything, someone here will be more than capable of giving me a hand.

We're looking for a design that would serve to identify our department in a rather unique way, possibly by incorporating some things that the town is known around the world for (being the birthplace of hockey and giant pumpkins).

The project is in its very, very early stages (ie: everything is going to have to be approved by the Chief), so ideally, the person that chooses to accept this project would be available for a period of time while things get worked out.

I've included a couple of examples of the style that I personally prefer (keep in mind that the end design may be no where close):

1) <img src="http://i46.tinypic.com/jrfxw6.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic">

2) <img src="http://i46.tinypic.com/2e6f1ci.jpg" border="0" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic">

The artist responsible would receive payment for their work and that's something that would be discussed prior to any work commencing.

If anyone is interested, let me know, please provide some examples and if I need any more info, I'll send you a private message.

Thanks!

Well, that was a stupid noob mistake on my part.

Let's try the image thing again.

93 views, one troll PM...and zero interest for this project?

That's cool, but I'm honestly curious to know why though.

Is it because I'm new to the boards? I've seen similar threads receive responses from people...

Anyone care to shed some light?

I'd offer to do it but my art work isn't good enough for it :(
Sorry.

Some idea of the level of compensation being offered might also help drum up interest. I'm sure you'd rather be able to negotiate one on one once you know who you're working with, but most people who come to the art forum seeking commissions aren't prepared to pay anything near reasonable, so many of us don't have high hopes.

Honestly, I'd post more details if I had them. As I said, it's pretty much only a concept right now. There's not even a rough sketch that I could post. I will try to get something together though.

That's a fair statement and I appreciate your honestly.

I honestly don't really know what a decent level of compensation is for something like this. I can tell you this much, I won't low-ball anyone with $15 or $25 for a piece of work.

I realize that graphic design / artists work is a commodity, so I'd say that I would be willing to start at $100 for compensation and then work from there.

I'm willing, but I'm more of a fine arts person than a graphic designer. While I could come up with something mighty fine for you eventually, I think you'd be better off with someone faster and more used to commission work. I think Luckywould be good at this, though I have no idea if he's willing.
