    A friend of mine edits a magazine and wants someone to design a front cover for the next issue. He usually does them himself but for this issue he needs something really nice. And possibly designing a logo. So, if you're a design student or freelancer, and want some experience doing a real job that lots of people will see and you can put in your portfolio, let me know please. If it's really good he might ask you to keep doing the front covers and pay you.

    It's a bridge magazine (as in, the card game, not physical structures)

    Dude, tbh I don't think that poor lad is gonna get anybody to do a free front cover, Logos or front covers can take hours. Maybe if he had a payment on it, or he could post it on Freelancing websites such as 99designs he'd get somebody, But I doubt anybody would do it with no pay even with the slim chance of a payout later on.

    Hope he finds someone though!

    I agree. Something like this can take hours upon hours. No one in their right mind would do it for free. And no, "Real world experience" isn't a good enough payment.

    Most modern design is so minimal you can just use a fancy looking font on a decent looking background and it'd look pretty.

    That's what he has been doing until now. But he wanted something nicer.

    Anyway, he found someone :P

    I seriously hope your friend is offering some kind of monetary compensation for the work.
