Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

Business Name

Umm, we're crowdSPRING - duh!

What do you do?

Take a look around the site - we're the guys and gals who built this thing. We're fun, creative, laid-back, insanely handsome and generally all-around cool people (according to our moms). But, most of all, we've built one of the largest and most popular creative marketplaces in the world.

What is your industry?

Advertising and Marketing

Describe your audience

This project is to write a blog post (if we love your post and you receive one of the awards, we may publish it in the crowdSPRING Blog (http://blog.crowdspring.com) - giving you full credit - and include in our newsletter).

The crowdSPRING Blog typically focuses on small businesses and startups, but we also write about issues that will interest designers and writers. For this project, we'd like you to focus on the designers and writers. More than 127,000 work on crowdSPRING!

How do you intend to use this blog piece?

We may publish the winning blog articles on the crowdSPRING blog and include in the newsletter we send out every two weeks to 100,000+ people!

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience?

creativity, inspiration, quality

Do you have a title for this piece?

No - please suggest a title with your proposed copy

Do you have a thesis or conclusion that must be reached?

We're asking you to submit a post for designers or writers (or both). It can be on any topic that you think will help them. You can write a post on how to design something (with examples), tips and tricks on using software commonly used by designers and/or writers, assemble inspirational examples and explain why each is a good example of a certain design style or paradigm, teach people how to do something interesting and useful (related to design or writing), help people to write better, or pretty much anything else you think can be helpful.

We don't want to limit you - this is your chance to create something that's awesome, that will help your fellow creatives, and that we'll love.

List all information that must be included

Create something great, easy and fun to read, and most importantly, useful. And please be sure it's in English.

What character, tenor and spirit do you wish to convey?

You're writing for other designers and/or writers. Be respectful, helpful, and creative!

What is your required length in words or pages for this blog piece?

This post should be detailed and helpful, but should not take hours to read. Please limit it to 1,500 words or fewer.

Do you want to include additional info?

None at this point. Good luck to all!

Brief updates

19-Dec-12 3:52 p.m. GMT
Thanks for submitting your entries. Some good ones already but still plenty of opportunities if you're working on an entry.

There are two types of posts that seem to be doing pretty well. Posts that provide advice (such as tips for naming companies or products, for example), and posts about a topic (that tell a nice story and help educate the reader).

Remember that if you want your post published in our blog (with a credit to you), take time to proof-read and work on the post - we're looking for the best of the best...
