I'm serious too I don't understand these thing you see. I didn't realize designers have it so much worse than errryone else. The more you know.

yeah things are not good and i dont like too spamming the forum again and again...you can judge it after seeing my profile i am facing difficulty in finding new clients even with 900+ completed jobs.

Rahul/Pascal: I really think that both of you are suffering for the new option clients have to restrict jobs to U.S. freelancers.

I hadn't considered that, but that makes complete sense! Pascal's work speaks for itself, but if he's not even seeing jobs worth his time the geo-restriction could be to blame. Ugh. I've always seen loads of what I deem junk jobs in the design category. But lately it doesn't seem any worse than usual.

Pascal, I'm not in your field but every artist I know uses **edited for Community Guidelines**  to showcase their work. It might be worth taking a look if you aren't already using it.

My program on Envato got code reviewed and approved yesterday and I made my first sale today. wheeeeeee

 

There are so many options out there. If you don't like Upwork or whatever, make changes to your situation. There are so many options for people like us.

 

I'm never going to understand people who just sit and **Edited for Community Guidelines** every month about how terrible Upwork is. Maybe it is and maybe it's not, but if you are doing so badly and things are so bad why aren't you making strides to improve your situation by finding options?

Well - I can tell you that's not the case. There are no big budget jobs in US only design projects.
There were some big budgets on print projects, however - and, of course, those are not awarded (yet).
