We decided to introduce minimum prices. Why? Because good design has its value! 100 € paid for a logo, for instance, does certainly not reflect the appropriate worth of a good draft, nor motivates experienced designers to participate. Since we are fortunately becoming more international, creatives from different parts of Europe and the world are increasingly taking part in projects. As we see ourselves mostly as a European platform, we want to make sure that the prizes offered are attractive to European creatives, too. Even if, according to feedback from our designers, around 50% of the acquired projects result in subsequent contracts.
What is the right amount for a minimum prize?
As the scope of the project within a category can vary a lot, it is certainly not easy to define the appropriate minimum prize. There is a huge distance between a simple graphical revamp of a homepage and designing a complete portal.
...you should create a business. A reason why, you should reach a dream and make it come true. A reason why your future belongs just to you and your work. Because there's always a reason why to step forward and make from your idea a way of living: here's the Reason Why Creativity Contest. Which our colleagues from 12designer Spain proudly sponsor. Obviously.Submitted by Your12designerTeam on 09.04.10, 12:59
"What the duck do you mean?" might be a thought that crosses through your mind at this very right moment. Some of you may be sticked with the DJ-thing, but that's not the point. No, really. We're creatives, but not that much ;-)
What means, the point is the new 12designer's category: Sound & Multimedia.Submitted by Your12designerTeam on 24.03.10, 14:45
Yup, we didn't have enough from social media contact, Facebook, Commenting, Twitter, Blog, Whatever. No: we love to get into new adventures, new challenges, more work (yeah, we're THAT kind of people). Of course, we were aware that comments about prices, design tools or other projects rose up in each project, even though those comments weren't related at all to that project. In plain words: you were needing a place to express yourselves, to talk, to speak, to shout, to share, to exchange and to waste time (why not?).
Therefore, alas: we're proud to present you 12designer's brand new Forum.Submitted by Team 12designer on 17.02.10, 17:34
We're proud to shout it loud. Our idea, when 12designer started receiving its first clicks, was not only to bring together clients and designers, but to make a big European design and communication network. A first step, of course, was to give wings to this English version, plus our Spanish colleagues. It was June, sun was on the streets, and everything was still to be done.
Seven months later, we're running as hell, and we're market leaders in Spain. So, let's put it this way: we needed new challenges. And... we've widen up our presence in Europe with our new French and Italian versions!Submitted by Team 12designer on 01.02.10, 16:55
Yeah, that's right: 2010 brings under its arm a brand new marvellous thing; our Claims&Slogans category. It seems, we didn't have enough with our big step-forward category Naming; it looks like we were not happy with all the new companies that received a good commercial name thanks to our talented community. No, we wanted more.
Therefore, we thought about starting 2010 going forward: and here's the result. Now, we're not just design, only design: with the Naming category, we opened a window to a new, ignored dimension: copywriting. Concepts. The other half of the watermelon, as they say around the Mediterranean.Submitted by Team 12designer on 07.01.10, 17:03
