Target Market(s)
festival and music promoters, bands and nightclub promoters, graphic designers, small businesses and individuals 17 to 40. web users
Look and Feel
Each slider illustrates characteristics of the customer's brand and the style your design should communicate.

Must Have:
- creative, original icons that are recognisable without being percieved as free vectors, or just rehashed icons seen hundreds of times b4.

something that stands out from all the free and recycled ideas from other icon related to the print, and signage industry.

something that will suit the entertainment industry, as well as bands, promoters and hipper business people.. i guess any age under 45 years old... that can tell originality and concept thought and passion in creative & visual services.

ability to be printed and scaled proportionately for web and print use.

can be mono or duo colours.

final files are eps, or illustrator files, or can be hi res pdf's that will go straight into illustrator as outlined or grouped for each icon.

so each set as 1 file please.

Should Not Have:
- something that i can just download free from hundreds of online users...

something i can buy from a stock site.

something that doesn't have creative passion & thought process behind it.

Comments and Questions
Hi - almost 30 custom creative icons for 290AUD isnt near realistic, any chance you can review this and come up with a reasonable buget ?

thanks for your feedback, i will certainly increase the budget if that what is required to get the best result. I am not sure why you say $290, it was $390 what i paid, but regardless, i take on board your comments and will have another think with the other guys here. Quite a few of the sets are based on 1 concept that will be slightly tweaked to reflect a differentproduct, for example the business card set, and event signage etc, but ill look at how many individual items there are and get back to you. Thanks

Apologies your right 1st place is only $290, as there are three other payments of $20, and the rest fees.

By the way inspiral your work is really good, i checked your profile. Please advise through private message or email, whatever is possible your budget thoughts to do this work

Thank you.

If you ask design crowd they can advise you on a reasonable price guide.

I say 290$ as thats what the designer will get for 1st place, this doesnt include partition payments or over heads to DC, and actually DC will deduct 15% from the 290$ 1st place payment - so the designer will only actually get around - 246$

Ah sorry just seen your previous comment.

i did two icon projects a few weeks ago, one was for 8 icons - customer paid 360GBP (priverate project)

the other was for 27 (remakes/modernized) for 260GBP - these dint include over head fees to DC

i think 300GPB plus 15% on top of that for DC is a fair price.
Designers cant send personal messages unless they eccept invites or its a priverate project.
Im sure many designers would love to take part in this contest if the price is reasonable, i know i would.

I will check in later in the week for updates.

hey there, budget increased by $150 up to $500, with $440 for 1st place.
