This is fairly obvious and many of you probably already do this but for those of you who don't...
I work on solo stuff and also group projects
The simple fact is that while I know a huge amount about the technical side of things I completely suck at art.
I've never paid for any art I use in my apps. In fact most of my apps are released by other people (I get profit share)
My art team consist of a very old friend and a guy from Germany I met in the forums when the PB was launching
If I need art for a personal project I just ask and they deliver. It works the other way around - they need some tricky JS or server stuff and I do that for theirs.
We also share some projects. These tend to be the more complex ones that require more time from everyone and we release these under one of my friends accounts. We have contracts to keep everyone happy.
If you're lacking some skill or another (like me with art) I would highly recommend finding and/or creating a little group of people you trust (or end up trusting). As I say, my own team is a friend of many years and some kid I helped in forums. Both are good resources, some of your mates can probably fill in your missing skills and you can find plenty of people in the forums who will help
As long as you can help each other nobody loses

I like that idea very much, because I dont know how to create a nice looking logo. But its hard to find people who are willing to share their expertise without seeing some money.

I'll hook you up with one of my friends
PM me your email and I'll let you work it out
My mate needs more time than I have available so giving you to him relaxes my very busy schedule a bit
My friend is an artist with fairly good web skills so he'll be able to whip you up a logo in next to no time
Sorry - limited time offer everyone else - first come, first served. I don't wanna overload the kid
Like the arrangement I'm setting up here you can help each other.
I feel a new thread coming on (spin of this one)
