Hi guys is it ever possible to add links into your signature?
Yes. I have.
Yes as long as it's a 'portfolio' type link and not for something like a crowdsourcing link which will get deleted the instant it's seen by a moderator (we HATE sites which devalue our work)
Hi @Levi. It's nice to hear that there are people out there that are on a mission to protect the graphic design industry from devaluation When you mention crowdsourcing links, do you mean sites where people do graphic design work to wealthy companies for free just for the sake of building up a portfolio?
basically yes, we don't like ones which have a lot of people put up work for a 'possible' payment at the end if you're lucky enough to get picked (aka crowdsourcing) and the same goes for the sites where people are happy to do jobs for about the cost of a cup of coffee..... actually we don't like crowdsourcing disguised as competitions either....
Your personal/business websites, behance, your instagram etc are usually fine but if any are offering up stuff for next to nothing well it's treated in the same way as the crowdsourcing sites and the likes.
If a website link is found to offer up 'free resources' we generally make sure they're legally allowed to do it etc too because we wouldn't want to have any comeback if it's found to be illegal etc obviously.
