Illustrator Wanted for Rate Your Story Logo Redesign Project

For once, we're not calling all writers...

We want artists!

With the absolute takeoff of Rate Your Story since it first began in October, we'd like to begin stepping things up a notch.  And a first step would be dumping replacing Miranda's crappy homemade logo.  Think you can help?
If you can do better than this, please email us!

Here's what we're looking for:
A new logo design that's modern, original, and fits the theme of Rate Your Story.  We're seeking something professional yet inviting, that will both draw attention to and represent what we do – giving writers a number rating critique on their story drafts.

In addition to a logo, we'll need the graphic in digital format in a number of sizes - which might mean a few variations of the same logo.

Although we can't offer artists the loads of cash they deserve, Rate Your Story will credit the artist chosen with their name, links to their site, and all kinds of praise, Tweets, and love. 

In order to apply to illustrate a new Rate Your Story logo, please send an email to with the following information:  Name, very brief bio, and a Link to Portfolio online (or attach up to three JPEG files if your work samples aren't online).  Also state what kind of timeline it would take you to design a new logo/banner/badge for the site.  Optional: If you want, you can submit a text description or a sketch description of your design ideas for us to consider. Please note that you don't have to come up with a design first to be considered.

Please send us this email stating your interest in being considered before March 9, 2012.  We will choose an illustrator from all artists who have expressed an interest and will announce the selection sometime in late March or early April.  Can't wait to hear from you!

  1. I am looking forward to reading the author interviews.

    So exciting that Rate Your Story is taking off like gangbusters!

    I've been so grateful for the feedback and suggestions on my submissions. Thanks!

  2. @bildebok - Thanks! We're excited too! See you soon.

  3. Found the illustrator call! Looks like I'm too late. Maybe, if you like my stuff, you could use an illustration to loosen up text dominant posts? No website yet, but I did post a bunch of things here:
