15 Freelancer Design And Development Creative Job Boards

Posted in Freelance, Web Design • Posted on 18 Comments

I believe many readers of my site are designers and developer themselves and freelancing is great way to earn extra income..or even better make it full time one with free conditions. This article is created to help you – find your potential clients or exactly opposite – to find who can do job for you. There are even job board directly related to help find programmer – designer and contrary. There are times when you can think, that you can do everything by yourself – but for me, I am better designer, and there is no way I will be very good PHP coder – I can get job done, but it takes a lot of precious time. Sometimes it’s better to hire somebody, so you can do what you do the best and not waste your time! Time is money remember!

This list features 15 best design related job boards in my opinion, hope you’ll find this article useful! In future I think to evolve this article and create other one just related to bloggers, because there are many services which offers affiliate programs, paid posts and things like that. I think it’s valuable at least to know such sites, can be good for article ideas too sometimes.

    My favorite is FreelanceSwitch too and looks like at least for the first place we all have same thoughts! Great!

    @Luis Lopez thanks for sharing, since I am not so much in 3D stuff I just gathered more web/graphic design related job boards.

    @Maris agreed, I think FS is the first place to look out for, since all the other popular job boards ask pretty big payment before.

    I love Freelanceswitch because you can publish your listing for free. As the other job boards ask for this $100-$200 or more, it sounds like a good deal.

    On the other hand they ask subscription fee from freelancers, but still you can find true professionals using their board.

    Hi There,
    Great article. There are some great and well established job boards in this post and I have used many of them. I still do.

    Whenever I have a project that I can’t handle alone, I recruit another freelancer to help me out. Networking is the key.
