    crowdSPRING Profiles 50 Talented Graphic Designers in New E-book

    Impressive Compilation of Candid Interviews with crowdSPRING Designers Offers Rare Insight into the Artist’s Backgrounds, Career Challenges and Blueprint for Success.

    CHICAGO - 22-Oct-12 GMT-

    CHICAGO, October 22, 2012 – A free downloadable e-book from crowdSPRING, the world's #1 marketplace for custom logo design, web design, a new company name or other writing and design services, shares a unique insight into the personal life of 50 crowdSPRING creatives, and their challenges, rewards and experiences with graphic design.

    In the profiles, each of the designers answers 12 key questions about who they are, their backgrounds, their inspiration, what kind of work they admire and personal attributes that are instrumental to their success. This unique e-book, offered free of charge, offers an extraordinary glimpse into the mind and viewpoint of designers throughout the world as varied as they are talented. And it answers a host of questions for anyone who’s ever wondered what it’s like to earn your living based on your artistic talent.

    Among the dozen questions that crowdSPRING designers answer in their profile are:

    How did you start out as a designer? What great designs have you seen recently that you love? What’s the first thing you do when approaching a new design? When designing a logo, what are some of the biggest mistakes a designer can make? What advice would you give a young designer just starting out? What do you do with your free time?

    “As our creative community grows, this book is a tribute to all of the incredible designers who have profoundly shaped crowdSPRING’s success through their hard work, creativity and talent,” said Mike Samson and Ross Kimbarovksy, co-founders of crowdSPRING. “The book tells the tales of some fantastically talented designers and offers a unique look into the world of graphic design and how it differs from one person to another and from one country to another.”

    The book also offers real-life examples how different designers handle the challenges of the business, a competitive marketplace and why they find creative crowdsourcing rewarding.

    Since its launch in 2008, crowdSPRING has overseen nearly 31,000 projects from small businesses and mass brands, generated more than 3.5 million creative entries and now averages more than 110 entries per project.
