When Creativity and Web 2.0 Meet

Stop-Motion App-uh-lu-cat-ion from Judson on Vimeo.

Judson Collier as a 17 year old high school student in Florida who created a funny, but very creative and effective three minute video on Vimeo to market his graphic design skills and to apply for a job with CrowdSpring.

He states on his website that he "dabbles a bit in filmmaking, photography, speaking, and writing." His story begins when he took a class in 2nd grade on creating websites. Fast forward 9 years later, and he is building websites for clients, working jobs for companies all around the country and enjoying life full of design.

I checked out the website for CrowdSpring and it looks interesting as well. According to their "How it Works" page they are a "Marketplace for Creative Services."

For Buyers:
1. Post a creative project
Whether you need a custom logo, website, marketing materials, illustration, or other design work, just tell us what you need, when you need it and how much you'd like to pay. After that, we'll send it out to our 11,966 creatives around the world!
2. Watch the world submit ideas
Once posted, creatives will submit actual designs to your project, not just proposals or bids. In fact, projects average 69 entries each and we guarantee that you'll get at least 25 entries or your money back.
3. Choose the one you like
As the entries come in, you'll be able to review, sort, rate, give feedback and collaborate with creatives until you find 'the one'.

For Creatives:
1. Create your profile
We built a little section of the site just for you where you can tell the world about your skills and create a great portfolio of your best work for all to see.
2. Participate in projects
With many new projects posted every day, you'll reach new clients all over the world and build your business. And, since it's a truly level playing field, you won't be judged by how fancy your offices are - it's all about your work.
3. Earn money
We manage the entire billing and payment process and we never keep a penny of the money you earn - you get every last cent.

Check out one of their latest design projects.

Is Judson one creative guy or what??? By the way...he got the job!
