Target Audience

Our readers are primarily freelance designers, but non-freelance designers love our site as well. More specifically, our audience includes graphic designers, web designers and developers, employees of advertising agencies, students, pros and everything in the middle.


Dimensions of the poster should be 8.5 x 11 with a bleed if necessary. The poster must include the RTR logo (most prominently) as well as the Freelance Review logo (less prominently) and can optionally include the website address: if it doesn't detract from the overall aesthetic. You can include the slogan "What matters to you" if you'd like.

Optionally - you can include only the RTR logo and present the words "Freelance Review" in a cool typographical treatment instead of using the official Freelance Review logo.

All designs must be family friendly. The top 20 winners will need to submit high-quality final versions of their posters. The grand prize winner must provide their address and contact information in order to claim the Wacom pen tablet.
