Laid-Off Graphic Artists Turn to for Freelance Jobs


A group of Internet-based graphic artists has launched, a new website to help graphic artists and designers find their next paying freelance graphic design job. GraphicDesignFreelanceJobs gives freelancers free access to hundreds of current freelance graphic design jobs in many design disciplines.

Graphic artists can find freelance jobs for many popular and niche-focused design disciplines, such as graphic design, logo design, banner design, website design, and print design. The site’s easy-navigation lets graphic artists click on a specific design discipline to find the best-matched design job; otherwise, users can use the site’s search tool to find specific freelance jobs by keyword or job type.

GraphicDesignFreelanceJobs fulfills a demand to review and list freelance graphic design jobs from a variety of online job boards, as well as organize job listings in a way that saves graphic artists precious time researching jobs that closely match their skill-set.

Full-time self-employed freelance graphic artists make up about 25 percent of the entire graphic design industry, but an even larger non-reported percent includes “hobbyists” and recently laid-off creative arts people who freelance as graphic artists in their spare time to earn extra cash.

Brian Scott, the site’s founder, said, “The majority of users who use our site include not only full-time freelance graphic artists, but also part-timers and aspiring graphic designers who seek short-term projects for extra cash or to build their portfolio.”

GraphicDesignFreelanceJobs lists paid graphic arts jobs ranging from quick “one-day” assignments to in-depth “month-long” projects, paying from $100 to $3,000 per project -- and much more. On average, the web site lists between 75 and 150 new freelance graphic arts and design jobs each day.

Freelancing as a graphic artist is a fast growing niche occupation on the Internet today, only second to freelance writing. “Even in a recession, the number of freelance graphic design jobs continues to grow,” said Scott, who attributes the steady growth to downsized companies outsourcing more projects.

GraphicDesignFreelanceJobs is part of a network of “how to freelance” websites -- all run and maintained by working freelancers -- which include GraphicDesignBids, FreelancePhotoJobs, and
