Free Booklet: Get the Work You Want


By / /

The Art Directors Club of Denver decided they needed to do something to help the advertising and design community at-large, in light of the sad economy. What they did – out of the goodness of their hearts – was to create a free booklet, entitled ‘Get the Work You Want,’ that teaches you how to find a job, find a freelance client, or just find a new process.

The concept came from Jarrod Wheaton, Chris Thomas and the board of the ADCD and was developed by a big group of talented local people. Grab it here for free as a pdf download or pick up a printed copy at Friday night’s Art and Copy premiere at Starz.

    Really? They rocked it? that read like a children’s book. The strongest part was the front and back cover. Not inspiring. At all. Weak.

    Lame! Seriously, all of the illustrations inside the book are half ass, and the copy definitely reads like some preschool bullshit. What a waste of time and energy!

    @David – The direction of this little book is simplicity this also comments on JZ’s comment above. Simple and to the point. As the head of a Design Department and hiring manager of freelance and vendors, it blows me away that someone would show up to a meeting with me to show me a portfolio in torn jeans and ratty tshirt. Our point is to present yourself as you present your work.
