LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need one brilliant article for our blog. It should be targeted mainly to our audience of graphic designers (although something that anyone creative would find interesting is fine as well) and can tackle any topic that you think they'd find interesting. And, since they're pretty damn creative people to begin with, that could be just about anything.
Our blog posts are typically about 750 words in length - could be less and could easily be more - but it's totally up to you. You don't need to submit the whole thing at once - maybe just give us a feeling for what the article will be about and your writing style. We'd suggest submitting 100-200 words as a sample but, again, it's totally up to you.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Our target audience is the 50,000 designers we have working on the site, our budding community of writers, tens of thousands of small businesses who use our service and, well, just about anyone who reads blogs. So it's a very targeted niche.
WE LIKE THESE EXAMPLES:

WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE THIS IN OUR PIECE:
There are no absolutes but we've found that articles that are hands-on work best. Give a list of tips or tricks. Gather up a set of examples that show 'best of' work in some area. Give advice on the best way to do X or Y. Highlight work that is inspirational or, better yet, that's terrible and creatives can learn from. Most of all, just write with passion and interest. If you do that, you can probably make a great article out of just about anything.
