    I’m not sure how you did this, but you completely left out my directory, http://www.Xemion.com! Ranked #1 for web designer directory and #3 for web designers. The Xemion directory is focused primarily on website designers, but we do have categories for graphic designers. Otherwise though, great list! Very useful!

    One area designers should look to is sites that can create partnerships with you. Longer term value in creating your own IP/creative pieces rather than working for a day rate. Not suggesting give up the day rate work but try to think about creating multiple lines of income,find sites that will work with you, if you have the creative ideas and content then they may have a channel to sell them for you

    Sometimes all you need to do is go down to a local punk rock show to find a brilliant designer ;)

    Great list of online resources – need to get onto a few of them.

    True, a lot of great talent resides on the sites mentioned above, however one thing that I know is important to buyers/clients is how fast and easy they can find what they are looking for. Especially when working on pressing deadlines.

    How is Fiverr a great marketplace for everyone? All it does is devalue the profession of graphic design. People think they can get a good logo for $5. But both the designer and client end up disappointed . Recently I had to redo a logo that someone thought they could get done on Fiverr. It looked nice, but it was wrong in so many ways. No time was taken to consider future applications and the target audience. It also looked like it was made in the 90’s. After that they hired another cheap designer and their logo sucked as well. Eventually they came to me. I charged them $1400 for a proper logo and they couldn’t be happier.
