GASR allows logos, but it is not too popular. The main place I see it in in requests, and some look for it to be cheap and free since most don't understand that they are buying more than just rights to display the art (but can actually own it and make profit on its use), but that we also have a lot of legal contractual information we have to go through to prevent various thefts/not receiving payment/etc. Plus, they aren't just buying the logo; it's branding them, and it's a thing all customers will remember and attach with their business. It's a lot of work, and many people on GASR are still paying with credits or they are not willing to pay the price.
Personally, $5 is way too cheap in my opinion. The price varies, but its something you need to set and establish. Underselling seems like it can bring more people, but it can actually cause a ton of problems. While being new and not having a ton of experience with customs does impact it, it is no reason to lower your price if you feel that it is worth more.
A site I use is the Professional Association for Design
. They have everything from programs to resources (that include jobs for freelance), but it is for people in the United States. It has some good resources though. You just need to pay attention to which jobs need you physically present (and part of why I'm providing more resources below...)Australian Graphic Design Association
would be similar for you in that they have resources and articles, but you can also list yourself for potential clients.And here is the International Council of Design
. They have similar resources and jobs available all over the world.Here
is on interesting article on AGDA about some things people run in to and struggle with."Lessons from a Young Designer"
is another AGDA article, but from a young artist who grew popular on Pinterest and what she learned from that.
Oh, and for a giggle and shaking your head at situations: CFH
is one of my personal favorite sites to browse.
Ok, I'll stop with the resources for now. There are many, many more out there that can help you out when it comes to finding a good place (and how) to advertise/promote your art as well as some other things.
