Right now, I'll be offering animated banner ads for $10. Designed to your specifications. When you buy one standard 468 x 60 ad, you can get additional resized ads for $5 a piece. Prices in US Dollars, payable via PayPal. If you are interested please contact me via e-mail.
I cannot show my previous work due to client copyright, but I can show this from my new soon to be launched site, InstantPixel.com. I'd also like to add that you don't have to pay until you are satisfied.
I'm just trying to make a few bucks here to support my new site (advertising, hosting etc...) My usual terrain is web design. I put together wmd-internet.com in a little bit of time to serve as a little something more than a placeholder. My latest client website is in preview at http://caudill.wmd-internet.com . That's off the point, my point is that some people are not good at making banners, and also that I need a few bucks and portfolio entrys.
Well, not that $10 for banner or $25 for a 5 page site isn't dirt cheap, however you may want to just have a bit of fun and offer to design a few sites for friends of yours and a few banners for free for them. They'll appreciate it and you will get some nice portfolio examples to show off and sell your services with. Just a suggestion...
