Student? Jobless? Enter: Student Gems

I have had a such a good experience with this site that I thought it deserved a blog post:

About a year ago I was introduced to a wonderful site: - a brilliant site for all students looking for part time work.

The site is so good because it allows students to advertise their own individual skills to employers and allows employers to search for students based on the skills they need!

Take me for example, I listed my skills as website design, graphic design & video production. So, any employers needing some website design work can search through a list of students who can carry out website design.

Since signing up I have had numerous projects through the site including changing the logo into a more suitable format.

If you are a student and are looking for part time work or even just a one off project then get on over and signup!

Don’t worry if you read this post and think; I’m not a website designer so I can’t signup. WRONG! The site has a massive list of skills and you can even suggest your own if it isn’t listed.

It really is a great place to earn money and experience doing the things you love.

Rewilding the planet with freelance animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every freelance animation project over £1000 a donation of 1% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any motion design projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around:

17.5 Acres of vital habitats around the world.

Just think, your animated explainer video or logo animation could also be helping fight the climate crisis!

If you're interested in some freelance animation work and saving the planet, get in touch and let's chat!
