Dear Bidder an Important message: I would like you to use "Bizstats" as the Magazine name . I will later reveal to you the actual name for it's private for now and it's about professional stocks and business stats magazine that is copyrighted with other partners of mine. Once I like your logo and you are chosen you will sign our NDA document which is the "Non-Disclosure Agreement". It would not be a rather short NDA doc. It would be a monthly contract after the first project is completed. I do need someone who can do the magazine templates (the design of the magazine and page layouts) in Adobe InDesign software and safe it as a PDF file so that it's easy to have it electronic format. Your ability to create an InDesign template is absolutely essential. Prior experience in designing magazines and graphics in InDesign is beneficial. Regards, BusinessMind P.S. As for questions you might have: We want to know how many pages there will be? -Answer: About thirty pages at very most What material will be provided from your side? -Answer: I'll provide all the content but logo design would be your part. I'll give you more information if you are selected but do send me your watermark logo in relation to business and high-tech and graphs/numbbers such as those in stock market graphs.

Dear Bidder, This project involves also web designing skills. There will be a web design (as part of the project of this project) and a separate contract that's monthly that will come after the design of the magazine templates and website (the initial stage of the project). Hence, I do want this project done in Adobe InDesign software. The templates have to be changeable and content easily changed. The logo design would be the first test. I have asked earlier that using the Name "Bizstats" with stock market graphs or statistical symbols as part of the logo design would be the test to see if you would be chosen as the main bidder for this contract and the following contract. If I cannot see that first logo design I will not award you the bid, as I do not know if you are a good graphics and technical person or not, and I have time constraints on this project. I will not use your first attempt or mock logo as the name of the real magazine will be very different. So these mock-up logos only show your skills as a designer but do not benefit me in anyway. It just helps select you for your creativity. The magazine will have about 25 pages and obviously a nicely designed cover. It will have to do with business stats. It's a confidential research that my colleagues intend to publish and therefore whoever is chosen for this project must be ready to sign "an NDA" non-disclosure agreement document. If you have any other questions you can always ask me, however I do prefer to see your designs as soon as possible so that I can select you for this process. Regards, BusinessMind
