    I am a graphic designer based in Australia and have been trying to get a freelance business started up for the last couple of years. I manage to get a client every couple of weeks but usually nothing more than a logo or basic website. It's not urgent, I work full time as a marketing manager so I have never had to rely on freelance.

    When you go searching for a designer where do you look? And what makes you choose one designer over another?

    Get yourself into a position where you can advertise on bhw.
    thats a great place to start.

    as for what I look for in a designer: good rates, fast turn around, good communications, but most importantly - great designs!

    I find some pretty good designers at fiverr, maybe you can try advertising your service at fiverr,
    or better yet advertise to multiple forums, to increase the change on getting more projects,

    as from what would you look for a designer.

    personally, i asked for some sample first from previous projects, second is a good rate and of course, great communication as long as the project stands, and lastly and ofcourse the most important - great designs that matches my needs and requirements.
