Dennis Bosher (eLogoContest designer “simplyg123”) kindly took the time to do an interview with us, please read below to learn more about this talented designer:
Tell us about yourself: My name is Dennis Bosher. I am from Naples Florida. Up until two months ago, I worked for the last 3 years as an Engineering Technician for a large firm. Due to the economy I was laid off. During my employment there, in my off time, I searched for a way to allow my wife to work at home. We have two kids, and it would have benefited us greatly. So I searched and searched, fell for a work at home scamor two, then I found the wonderful world of webmaster forums. I initially was looking for data entry, but nothing was really worth the time. While looking I noticed design contests within these forums. It reminded me of a fascination I had with graphic design many moons ago. The first thing I did was borrow a copy of Photoshop 5.0 from a friend of mine. Anyways long story short, my journey to find my wife a stay at home job, turned into a part time business, and now a full time business. Over the years I got better and better, and my business became more and more established online.
How did you get started designing? I started my designing career, when I discovered logo contests on forums.
What do you love the most about designing: The main thing that really makes me feel good about what I do, is when I visit a website, that’s using a logo that I designed. When you see that people are willing to pay decent money for something you enjoy doing, it really does something for ones pride.
What has been your experience at eLogoContest: eLogoContest, has really surprised me, I had never heard of them, I was a member of the NamePros.com forum, and they mentioned eLogocContest would be taking over the contests for now. I was initially skeptical about how much work there would be, but to my surprise, there was a steady amount of contest being held, and with decent prizes. I reviewed many of the designers works, and felt confident that I would fit right in. I have been really happy with eLogoContest. After winning my first contest, it encouraged me to keep charging on, and assured me that I could make some decent money here.
If you could see one thing change here at eLogoContest, what would it be? When I receive notifications, the link takes me to the main page, instead of the contest the notification was referring to. I would like the links in emails to link directly to that contest. Other than that don’t change a thing 😉
Do you have a website where we can learn more about you: My design website http://www.skilledgraphics.com
