Dear DP Members - I Am Willing To Do FREE Photoshop Work For You!

Hello DPers. You can find me hanging out here every day. You guys are like family to me; my intellectual family. And I just love it here.

One of my skills and hobbies is doing photoshop work. I can edit and manipulate photos, add captions, create banners and logos... you name it; and I love doing this stuff. And it is something that I can do while I work my normal job without affecting me. And it would actually help pass the time while I am at work.

So if you have any graphic arts wants or needs, could use flyers, logos, banners, advertisements, signs, stickers, pamphlets, anything to help a campaign, or are in need of assistance on a graphics project, I WOULD BE THRILLED to help you out with that. And if you know or see someone that could use that type of service here on the boards, please put them in contact with me.

Thanks.

----

Just please adhere to the following guidelines:

1. Only request things that YOU ACTUALLY WANT AND WILL USE in some way; ie things that will be printed or posted; sign, flyer, pamphlet, newsletter or mailer; website banner/logo, caption photo for facebook, logo/banner for emails... I would rather not waste others time or mine. Please refrain from frivolous requests that will not be printed, posted, or shared.

2. BE SPECIFIC in what you want; I prefer to do as few drafts as possible; and as little "follow up" as possible.

3. If you have "a style" that you are going for, try to find images or links of similar art that you can refer to.

4. Give a time frame. If you need something soon let me know. If there is a serious deadline, make sure you state it.

5. If you do make a request, please be respect that the fact that I am DOING WORK for you. BE DILIGENT in checking back. If I feel people are wasting my time, I may lose patience.

6. If you could, mention to others where the work came from and refer them here if they want some work done as well.

Example 1: "I would like a coffee cup logo similar to this one: www.linkettylink.com. With the words "LibertyBell.com" on the cup. It is for my existing website. I would like it to have solid colors.

Example 2: "I need the following banner/sign put into a format that can be printed at kinko's: www.linkettylink.com. I need it by next Monday. And I would like the text to be green with a black outline and an orange background.

See how specific the above examples are?

Here is a running list of projects people have proposed thus far, just so we can keep it organized, and to let others chime in or assist if they see something they can help with:

  1. Jungleboogie: Caption this picture:
    http://sayanythingblog.com/entry/on-nsa-scandal-bush-has-oba...

    Caption: "OK, we agree on Guantanamo, Drones, NSA spying, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, No Child Left Behind, Obamacare, TARP bailouts, NDAA, Snowden, PIPA, SOPA, Blackwater, CIA prisons, big government, big deficits and everything else. But don't forget that in public you are a fascist and I am a socialist. Maintain the illusion George, or we are screwed."


  2. WildSatchmo: Charlie Crist & Rick Scott are running against a great Liberty candidate named Adrian Wyllie (the guy who got arrested for driving with no license to protest Florida's real ID act).

    One of Adrian's best talking points is, that rick scott and charlie crist are the same. Photos of Scott that have crist's playskool looking hairdo, or a shiny bald rick scott cap on charlie crist would probably look epic, and help deliver a point. Might make for some good flyers =) Maybe two criminal wanted posters for "Rick Crist" and "Charlie Scott".


  3. ChristianAnarchist: It's a little early for the 2016 elections but in 2015 I might want to do a "Rand Paul Liberty Challenger" to go with my "Ron Paul Liberty Corvette". If you've seen the Corvette (Google "Ron Paul Corvette") you get a good idea of what I'd want for the Rand campaign only using the Dodge Challenger (hemi of course) as the donor car...

  4. jason4idaho: I have a logo for my Idaho House Campaign....but the logo is only sized for websites, and not for printing on 2'x4' banners. Any chance you have time in the next 6hrs to help make something roughly similar in a 2 color vector graphic for use at a Kinkos so I can print out a few banners for sign waves on election day? Kinkos needs 24hrs for a vinyl banner, and the primary is Tuesday.

  5. Treg: I need a radio show logo for " Just Talkin' ". Its a brand new internet Radio show I am starting with a 72 year old vietnam vet.

  6. Mat Blankenship: I could use all the help I can get to spread the word about the illustrated Ron Paul biography for youth. "Meet Ron Paul" is a grassroots effort to put a RP biography in as many schools as possible. We have a FB page that promotes the book and libertarian ideals. HTTP://facebook.com/MeetRonPaul Any help with creating images that can be shared would be awesome.

  7. wearewinning: great work i want to build a website for a startup soon for tiny homes/ cabins . i just bought the web name libertycabins.com and my logo that i want is a eagle head with a double handle buck saw for wings the eagle head would be in the middle.NOTE the buck saw is like the 6 foot long ones for cutting down redwood trees back in the day. i have one in my wood shop on the wall and i printed out a large eagle head and placed it in the center. i cant draw for crap tho maybe you have some ideas.

Thanks. I did most of the design work. I knew exactly how I wanted it to look and got all of the art work together but I could only do a very crude cut and paste which was no where near good enough for prime time. The wrap company took it from there and made a very professional look...

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

idea!

In Florida, Charlie Crist & Rick Scott are running against a great Liberty candidate named Adrian Wyllie (the guy who got arrested for driving with no license to protest Florida's real ID act).

One of Adrian's best talking points is, that rick scott and charlie crist are the same. Photos of Scott that have crist's playskool looking hairdo, or a shiny bald rick scott cap on charlie crist would probably look epic, and help deliver a point. Might make for some good flyers =) Maybe two criminal wanted posters for "Rick Crist" and "Charlie Scott".

What do you think?

Charlie Christ and Rick Scott Mashup

Here is a start. Give other ideas for captions, and what you would like added to advertise your candidate.

nice work!

love the caption too I'm gonna send it to one of Adrian's guys =)

http://subfarms.com

It's just a start...

Contact one of Adrian's people, and just send them the link to this comment: http://goo.gl/ikoPRF

My suggestions: Take your time and be deliberate in deciding. Come up with a more snappy caption, and tell me exactly what you want so I can finalize it, put a border and better text, and something about your candidate, and something to identify the candidate and campaign.

And if Adrian and his team like my work and would like other images, same rules apply, get specific, and make sure it is something THEY ACTUALLY WANT AND WILL USE. And if they need signs, banners, logos, anything for campaign or advertisement, make it happen right here.

Just try to be specific. Because even though I enjoy messing with this stuff, I'd much rather work on something that will get used or get posted somewhere; I prefer to do as few drafts as possible.

And to that effect, just scribble and annotate the changes you would like by going to the following link and using the tools; you just need a gmail account: https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1Bks-SdZgwWkwjqj7rx9Dg_HU...

No real purpose except I think it'd be pretty neat!

I have this ancient camper and it's been my home on and off

for years. I love the thing but it's literally starting to fall apart. It's on a 30 foot double axle and that's all solid. Just a bit of surface rust in some spots. I've never tested the electric brakes on it but it's "on the list" to do the axle bearings and brake job.

It's separated into three areas so I figured I could just demo and rebuild them one at a time.

I'll build to 8' wide and 13' tall off the pavement. And since I'm doing it in stages I plan to try and find all the salvage and second hand materials I can. I'll be using most of the fixutures from this rig, I'll even reuse some of the interior paneling. Studs are gonna be 2x3 SPF if I have to buy them but I don't care what I use, 2x3, 2x4, SPF or steel. Guys are using rivets for steel studs in mobile applications to good effect. I was gonna tack weld steel but I agree that rivets are better. These things do flex.

For exterior wall covering I favor aluminum or steel corrugated roofing. Ditto for the roof. I'm gonna put on a shed roof design. I was gonna do a gable end but I'm only putting a 4" rise on the roof so there's little point in gable end. 4" over 8' gives me a .5" rise per foot of run and that will shed rain but allow snow to pile up a bit; that's ok with me, that's more insullation.

So this design will allow for sleeping and storage lofts and free up a lot of space below. I'm gonna design for on/offgrid but probably just finish it as on grid to start and then retrofit offgrid components like black water, solar and 12V power later. Or as I happen to find stuff. Services will initially include water, 110 power and propane. I'm gonna plumb out with PVC and PEX. I'm really psyched about PEX, I've never used it before but I hear it's a Godsend.

I keep thinking about a popout of some sort. Just a single popout or window seat changes your whole perception of being in a shoebox. But popouts are close to complication and time favors simple designs that don't screw with the ancient marriage of gravity and water.

Fixtures I can salvage from this present rig:

110 lighting fixtures.
Bathtub and shower head.
Potty.
Windows (unfortunately singlepane).
Fridge.
Stove/oven.
Propane forced air furnace.
I'm gonna assume the duct work for the furnace.
Kitchen and bath sinks.
Swamp cooler (exterior mount).

All this stuff is vintage 1957. It's gonna look...well knowing me the interior will end up looking utilitarian/man cave with fishing poles and rifles hung on the walls. I don't like closets and drawers, I like open shelves where you can see everything.

The one big piece I don't have worked out yet is what weight load is appropriate for this trailer frame. A known unknown.

Have a look at these links

Have a look at this link, and paste the link to the picture or page that looks like a good starting point for the eagle head: http://goo.gl/wHQ59Y

And for the buck saw; which of these is your preferred design of saw:? http://goo.gl/Ru4xDP

this is what i have hanging

this is what i have hanging up in my shop http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=so5pjl&s=8#.U3bxOCj7FJI this is the eagle i used http://www.therightts.com/images/eagle-head-clip-art.png . i think that the eagle saw may be fine black and white if that makes it easy for you.

A different direction, what would you think?

This is a totally different direction. But what would you think of an outline type logo such as the following mockup?

Or this:

hey that's pretty cool man,

Worked on this today

Hey wearewinning, I worked on this today, tell me if this will work or if you need any changes made, then I can give you the full size files.

can you make it similar to

can you make it similar to the eagle and saw i sent you? i like the ones you made but i am curious to see what you can do with what i sent you. more of a majestic eagle look, hence feathers rolling over blade.

◥⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙◤..

So what do you think of this???

Change head size/position? Wing height/width? Line thickness?

Your pretty good at this type

Your pretty good at this type of stuff that's for sure !!!!!! I like the look of this blade and eagle head more. Could you make the handles of the saw less bowed and no higher than the eagles head or just straight across. The blade handles might look neat if they had a black gray shade and or other saw components just like the eagle has some shading. thanks again!

◥⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙▲⊙◤..

A different take

I added textures to the blade. But I think all of the realistic textures contrast the line art style, and the eagle contrasts the blade now too. I'm not crazy about it. But let me know what you think.

Usually when people want a "logo," they want simple line art, not usually any level of realism in texture and such. So I was going all line art.

But you can see I am spending alot of time on this one. I am enjoying it. But please take your time in deciding, and try to get specific and finalize this. Tell me EXACTLY what you want. I don't want to do 30 drafts! I am sure you understand.

I know you said "you can't draw." But if it aids in speeding this up for us... just go to this link below, and scribble your preferred edits, you can even use the text tool to write notes... you just need a gmail account:

https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1Ryvs8IpBPzTW4zES0RIZy2H1...

So something like this would suit you?

So something like this would suit you? If so, give me more feedback:

1. Do you want legs on it?
1a. If so, would you like to see some other leg options.
2. Do you want the wings wider, taller, etc?
3. Would you like to try different types of heads as well?

So before I can go polishing the final logo for you, I just need to know specific details of what looks good to you.
