Designn Magazine Contest (Custom Journal Skin) by UJz   Honey, We're Getting a Monster (1 week remaining!)fancyQUACKS
A really hungry one...
Naughty monsters are running rampant in the city again - you know the kind! They're short, noisy and make constant mischief on our doorsteps; begging for candy despite buying perfectly good pumpkins the same day. What's their dastardly plan for all that food? They're up to no good and must be stopped.
We should feed the trick-or-treaters - to hungry, real monsters! There's a critter-shaped hole to this plan: we don't actually have any real monsters. But all we need are your designs to put into my Monster Making Machine to release them into the suburbs! Trick-or-treaters - gobbled up for good!
How does this work? I'm glad you asked. The "Monster Maker 2000" is my old, modified microwave and this invention will create flesh-and-blood monsters from designs. A little energy combined with your designs will help bring our glorious abomination to life.

I'm a generalist. I create and learn new things everyday, going from graphic designer to editor to web designer and developer is just what I do for fun. Do what you love, love what you do.


Founder of Designn, Editor-in-Chief of Designn Magazine and Co-Founder of Soosci.

An idea worth spreading

Today the world in moving forward in every aspect - technology, business, education, healthcare - but what about creativity? Tests (Such as Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking) have shown that over the decades our IQ scores have kept growing, but has shown a decline in creative thinking. In other words, we are smarter, yet less equipped to find novel approaches to problems.

Creativity applies to almost anything, and everyone is creative in their very own way - they just need to discover it and apply it to everything they do. A creative world is a better world.

I'm passionate about

Studying medicine, spreading creativity, making art, developing new technologies and solutions through creative thinking.

What Are we?

The 24th Collective is a group of handpicked artists and freelancers collectively working on art and paid projects. We hope to achieve excellence in creative design by combining the best of a group of freelancers. In it's essence a global creative agency formed by freelancers working together. We believe in Success Through Collaboration.

The Idea & Concept

When companies or businesses hire freelancers they usually hope to get their work done at a relatively lower price than from a creative agency, and all freelancers have strengths and weaknesses; which means sometimes, the outcome of projects might not be of the same standard as that of a professional creative agency. With the 24th Collective we hope to do the best for both groups - making sure that freelancers aren't under-paid for their work and that the hiring agencies get the best possible final product through the combined effort from experts in each field.

For fREELANcers

When a new project comes up, we would assign a small team of selected freelancers along with a project manager to work on the project. Individual work is assigned accordingly by the manager and the whole project is managed through an online app like InVision or directly via email depending on the requirements. 

Freelancers are not required to work exclusively with the 24th Collective and they are able to accept or reject projects as they wish. Freelancers submit their price quotation for the work beforehand and the payments are made to the respective freelancers via PayPal. 

We're currently looking for:
Graphics Designers
UI/UX Designers
Digital Painters
Web Designers
Pixel Artists
Logo Designers 

Any member of the 24th Collective bringing in a new project to the group will receive a 5% commission off the project and all freelancers taking part in the project will be credited on the official portfolio. 

All 24th Collective freelancers are featured on our website and promoted constantly though our social media networks, they will also be entitled to other benefits such as free business cards and websites in the future based on their contributions to the collective. 

For Clients

Companies or businesses hiring us for their projects would first have to submit a detailed description of their project and the 24th Collective would do an analysis and  put together the best team of freelancers based on the specific needs. We would then provide a quotation for the project. If the quotation is approved we would begin work on the project.

The project manager would be the main point of contact for clients who will be able to view progress in the project and request for changes during the process. We provide a premium quality service for our clients through every step of the design process.

Interested clients are welcomed to get in touch via email
Invite Request Form

Join the Collective

The 24th Collective is currently invite only for freelancers and artists. If you’d like to be considered for an invite please submit a request through the official invite form stating your interest with links to your portfolio/website. 

The concept is currently a work in progress and we hope to improve this collective with time to make sure that it efficiently serves it's purpose; to fairly benefit both freelancers and the clients hiring us. If you would like more information regarding the project please leave a comment on this journal or send me (UJz ) a note.

Frequently asked questions

What type of design-contract is involved for design work? 
The contract being used will change depending on the project, it's usually a freelance agreement signed between the 24th Collective and the Client mentioning the individual designers involved. Copies will be sent to individual freelancer beforehand for approval.

Do the freelancers pay anything (commission)? 
The 24th Collective does not charge a fee from the freelancers. Freelancers are free to submit their own firm quotations for their portion of work which would be included in the complete project budget and paid in full on completion. Where necessary the 24th Collective will provide advice on quotations/pricing for the benefit of the freelancers. 

As mentioned previously, it is not required for freelancers to work exclusively with the 24th Collective. They simply will be members of the 24th Collective and are expected to participate in consultation or design work based on the project (paid work).

You Deserve to SmileDo what you have to do to be happy.
Eat an entire chocolate cake,
Swallow all the pills you need to take -
'Medication' isn't a dirty word.
Wear a princess dress
Or a band t-shirt with
Jeans in distress -
Boy or girl or anything in between,
Stand before that mirror
Take a twirl
And see how beautiful you are.
Go for a run,
Have some fun,
Watch Netflix until your eyes burn,
Curl up in bed -
Take a vacation from your head.
Phone a friend
And talk for hours,
Or stay in your room
And wait for the darkness
To end -
No need to pretend,
Just do what you need.
Paint a picture
Or write a sonnet,
Or just sit still
And breathe -
Things will
Get better.
Pick some flowers,
Take hours
Just for yourself -
You are just as special
As anyone else.
  Fox and the Girl: Part 1The trees, looming and casting shadows over the river, were vivid in colors. Most of the leaves were ready to fall to the ground, but still maintained a light grasp on the branches. Coming here during this time of the year relaxed me. I leaned against one of the trees and allowed myself to slide down until I was sitting.
All the grass in the area had changed to a dry yellow. I closed my eyes, and listened to the river’s dull hum. I took in a deep breath and could almost taste autumn. After a moment of listening to the river, I heard some leaves rustle somewhere in the distance. I glanced around and my eyes widened as they settled on the copper-colored beast.
The fur-covered beast was standing only a few feet away from me; it seemed to be a fox, but much larger. Under normal circumstances, I think I might’ve been scared; its eyes gave off a peaceful warmth with their amber glow. I would’ve fled just at that moment had it not been for the mere size and peculiarity of th
  A night with youI could never get over the shock it gave me the vision of your body so perfect.
A muse, a siren, a sylph, a willing woman of passion, of love, of warmth.
Tonight will become my happiness, because it would be the first time, the first time it would be a true love.
We are that fire, we are that light.
I hope the night will not disturb our dreams, full of our greatness.
Of passion and horror, of curiosity and desire, as they will never be after tonight.
You're the torment turned into cure.
Not of pain, but of satisfaction and gratitude.
And we'll be just time, without compass fixed in our blood, you will remain the same women forever, the one perhaps you abandoned for not pleased your desires with mine ..
We must end this ritual to start a new and different, until the moon is tired of seeing us and abandon us.
You have left your smell in my thirsty lips, and your petals on my pillow, and now I dream of you unable to touch you, I’m tied to you forever.
I try to convince me that this
