Weekly Glance of Awesomeness #4 admin | August 22nd, 2008

Hello my little crowdSPRINGers,
Here is this week’s Glance of Awesomeness. This week, we reached an all-time high in projects posted in a day. It was a very proud moment for us, so if you haven’t recently, Browse our current projects and contribute your ideas to one project or twenty! Here are some projects worth looking at:

Glance #1: Beautywebs.net Gallery Design
The Award: $400
End Date: August 26th
The Breakdown: Beauty is now in the eye of you, the creative! Beautywebs.net is looking to launch a new gallery site that features the creme de la creme of web sites on the internet, and they need you to help make their site equally beautiful. We’re a huge fan of inspiration sites, and crowdSPRING has actually been featured on several of them. Now it’s time for one of our creatives to design one!

Glance #2: FLIPPEX Newspaper Ad to Help Artists
The Award: $225
End Date: August 26th
The Breakdown: FIPPEX is an online capital exchange that needs a print ad for its site that will run in newspapers. They want to target artists, writers, actors, filmmakers, bands, bloggers, theatre troops, comedians, and entrepreneurs. The premise? Helping creatives get paid for the art they create. The crowdSPRING crew is always a huge fan of that concept, so help your fellow artists out.

Glance #3: Design an iPhone Application Logo
The Award: $325
End Date: August 27th
The Breakdown: Graffitio is an iPhone application that finds “Walls” near your location where other people have written about a place – whether a park, restaurant, shop, venue, etc., connecting you to people who have been there before and those who will follow. They need a grungier logo design to make them stand out from the web 2.0 crowd, and they are looking to crowdSPRING’s creatives to make that happen.

Glance #4: Name and Design Packaging for Wine Company
The Award: $500
End Date: September 2nd
The Breakdown: It’s interesting to see these projects pop up that really give you full creative reign. Last time, it was a crowdfunding web site, and now, this small winery would like our creatives to name and develop a visual identity for packaging their new bag in box wines. As points of reference, they mention Rothko, Mondrian, and other mid-20th century paintings. So get your modern on!

There you have it for this week, folks. Tune in next week for more Glances of Awesomeness, and feel free to send me any leads!

From many minds, the perfect design. Post your project today and let the crowd wow you!

    What happened to the beautywebs.com project?

  • Angeline

    We temporarily “removed” the project so that it’s inaccessible. After the project was posted, we ran into an issue with payment and are following-up with the buyer. As you know, we require that funds be escrowed at the time projects are posted. Whenever we run into any payment issues, we promptly act to protect everyone involved.

    As soon as we’ve resolved this issue, we’ll update everyone. Sorry about the inconvenience!!
