Write For Logos By Nick

The Logos By Nick brand serves a community of young creators who embrace open source software as a way of expressing their creativity. By contributing a blog post, article or tutorial you can help make our community a better place while gaining exposure for your own website, business or brand. 

Submission Guidelines

  • If pitching a tutorial: Accepted topics include written design tutorials for Inkscape, GIMP, Blender, Illustrator or Photoshop.
  • If pitching an article: Accepted topics include open source software, graphic design software, design industry news, career advice for graphic designers, business and marketing advice for freelancers, lifestyle advice for freelancers, tech talk relating to design, or if you simply want to share an exceptional piece of work you created using open source software.
  • Submission length: Regardless of chosen topic, all tutorials and articles must be at least 1,200 words in length, but no greater than 2,500 words.
  • Media: Please include a variety of helpful images, diagrams and videos that help the viewer visualize your post. If media is not your own creation, credit must be given to the creator.
  • Originality: Since the search engines tend to penalize sites with duplicate content, I cannot accept articles or tutorials that have already been [or will be] published elsewhere. Contribution pieces must be original.
  • Advertisements: You are welcome to promote your own website, business, product or service so long as it is not excessive and is done in good taste. Do not let this compromise the integrity of your submission though. Your focus should be providing genuine value to the viewer first and promoting yourself second.
  • Keep It Clean: I’ve worked hard to make sure the Logos By Nick brand maintains a dignified, professional image that is suitable for all ages and I hold guest posters to those same standards. Please make sure that your submission does not include any language that could possibly be interpreted as profane, vulgar or controversial in any way.

How To Submit...

Before writing an entire article or tutorial, reach out to me first in order to pitch your idea and tell me a little more about your site or business that you wish to promote. Any examples of past articles or tutorials would be helpful as well.

Once I’ve determined that we’re a good fit for each other, I’ll go ahead and give you the green light to get working on your piece and will give you a deadline that is suitable for the both of us.

Please email your ideas to me at nick [at] logosbynick.com and use “Guest Post” as the subject. I’ll be in touch within 24 hours to discuss it further.
