- I've been on the opposite side so far (posting a project for designers to send a proposal). Design Inc. has one of the best communities of designers I've seen in a long time. Within 2 hours of me posting my project, I had 5 amazing proposals. Within a week, I selected the two designers I wanted to work with. For designers, getting invited to Design Inc. would be an honor and certainly the best way to find freelance or full-time opportunities!
Dribbble is good resource for finding designers. Makes sense that they're trying to make some money, but they have recently changed pricing that's way out of scale for what they're providing.
This will only appeal (maybe) to large corporations. Definite way to kill the soul of something creative and communal.
