Intro: Recently I learned that creating IDs for everything seems to work best especially when sharing it on social media and for passing the word around quick...plus it makes it easier for the audience to get the information that is key without throwing too many words at them. I decided to create some test IDs for commissions first to see if I could even make them...
What I created: I did not create an official template as I want it to be made once I have my logo and website up (I want it to match those colors). I used the handy dandy Microsoft Office Program slide designs available to create a nifty commissions ID. I am pleased with how calm and lovely it looks (for a first timer). I am liking the color so much that I am thinking about making my website to match (but that is not going to be).
First: to celebrate the whole idea of commissions and finally launching them I am doing a 50% off sale on ACEOs. I have limited slots available with specific categories as these are the categories I am going to use on my website.
The only main reason behind the discount is - I am asking for a well written review/critique in return. Once the commissions is completed you must sign the guestbook or do a critique if on DeviantArt. I am trying to put together a page of commissions that have feedback so that future customers can have something to look at before making a decision. There are a total of 48 slots... so if all the slots fill up I'll have 48 reviews to add to my profile. And the customers get 50% off the original price on custom ACEOs! A win-win situation for everyone (I think).
Second: This is just a mock-up...still testing the waters on this ID. I want to create an official ID for each canvas size I make as I'll be making an official listing for each canvas size (I am going to charge by canvas then further by my art stage). I do not think I'll be officially launching these till I have actual art I am happy to show off.
I did think of another idea... perhaps I should set this up like a calendar? I would have the price, canvas details, and other relevant information in a small section at the bottom with my name and title at the top. Majority of the entire ID (95%) would be just images set up like in a calendar in the middle.
I feel that the current ID mock-up has too much words and not enough images... The thing is: when I'll be uploading these IDs I'll have an "About" or "description" section where I'll write up all the details... including available slots and rules and such. So I thought, if I already am using another spot for words then why repeat?
Still thinking it over.....
I used to be a digital artist but switched back to traditional art as I feel more connected with the art I create this way. Currently, I create art whenever I can for art trades and commissions. I have worked with clay (earth clay to modern forms like Polymer, Sculpey, even Air Dry clay) along with watercolors, acrylics, oil paints, pastels, charcoal, pen and pencil drawings, India ink, Chinese Colors, wires, felt fabric, yarn, weaving, basket making, and the list goes on and on. I am currently working on exploring nail art, make-up, dress making, scrapbooking, and small canvas art.
