New Laptop with Large Monitor, or Desktop? Feb 7, 12, 8:13 a.m.
I'm sure this has been brought up more than a few times, so I apologize in advance :)
I find I'm doing a lot more freelance work at home, and my 15" macbook pro isn't really an ideal workspace anymore. I'm debating getting the 27-inch iMac, or just upgrading my current laptop and getting a really large monitor and a keyboard to use while at home.
I do like the fact that having a laptop lets me do work outside of home, and I can bring it with me to client presentations if need be...but they also have a shorter lifespan than the desktop.
New Portfolio Site! Jan 6, 12, 9:46 a.m.
I've finally had a chance to update my portfolio, and would love some feedback!
Thanks in advance!
Wine Journals! May 26, 11, 8:01 a.m.
So I have a client who wants me to make them a wine journal... only they have envisioned it to be in the shape of a bunch of grapes.... I want to do a few variants to hopefully sway them from that route, because I think it'll look tacky.
But since they're specifically asking for that version, I'm trying to think of ways to make it LESS tacky... any thoughts?
Portfolio Question - redesigns Jan 26, 11, 9:04 a.m.
Should you show before and after shots of redesigns? Or just show the better redesign?
Awesome song(s) Oct 19, 10, 11:39 a.m.
I've just stumbled upon this... and.. all I can say is awesome :D
and everything else on there haha
high res screen capture? Oct 7, 10, 10:26 a.m.
My boss wants me to implement a few screen captures of the software we are talking about in a flyer... only the screen grabs are extremely low quality (obviously). I know why it is low res.. but I want to know if there is an option other than opening it in photoshop, changing it to 300dpi and saving it in cmyk.
I've also tried converting it to index color and changing the resolution that way.. looks the same.
Any thoughts? Any help would be appreciated.
istock video question Sep 21, 10, 6:46 a.m.
If I am downloading a video file off of istock (http://www.istockphoto.com/stoc...
Which file type do I download?
It will be used for a tradeshow booth on loop and most likely incorporated in powerpoint presentations (as a transition/background). I'm thinking highest resolution would be best since it will be on a large screen... but I figured I would get some opinions on here from people that may have already done something like this before.
Thanks in advance!
EPS or PDF? Aug 20, 10, 1:20 p.m.
I've always exported my work as a PDF X:1A when sending things out to print... but my new boss is saying she only uses EPS files when sending out, and in my brief the company requesting an ad asked for a high res eps, and then said the next best thing would be a pdf or jpeg.....
Aren't pdfs better? Should I be trying to push pdfs instead of eps?
Corporate Software Ads... help! Aug 17, 10, 1:31 p.m.
Ok, so I've been doing some research browsing through some software/IT/corporate magazines...and my question is.. has anyone seen or done any GOOD advertisements for these mediums?? They're all so horrid!
New Company.. fonts? Aug 6, 10, 1:44 p.m.
Hi again, so I am starting at a company that has never had a designer before and I want to give them a list of essential fonts they should purchase since they just have the basics that come with windows..... yes I am currently not working on a mac (sob). But at any rate, I would love it if some of you guys would give me a list of what you think would be essential (ie. helvetica, univers, etc)
Software Company Rebrand Aug 6, 10, 12:16 p.m.
Hey guys, I'm working on updating the look of a software company, and was wondering if anyone has any links or photos of good corporate/tech looking pieces. It seems the software industry is in love with gradients and drop shadows and flashy things mixed with stock photography.
Thanks in advance!
Mac vs PC for design Jul 15, 10, 6:16 a.m.
I'm sure there are a ton of forums out there that are discussing this, but I'd love some of your opinions. I'm starting a new job at a company in a few weeks. I'll be working on their marketing team as the designer. They're a software/IT company that is growing, and thus wants to produce better looking designs).
Now my question is, is designing on a PC worse/different than designing with a Mac? They're looking into getting me a Mac, but they all use PCs. I told them it would be better to use a mac, but if need be I can adapt as long as the software is available. They're looking into it haha.
So yeah, Mac vs PC.. is there a huge difference when it comes to graphic design?
Thanks in advance!
Pricing Question Jun 24, 10, 11:30 a.m.
A friend of mine is asking me to create an identity package for his company. It's small, but they have big clients, and can afford to pay.
They need a logo (basically new identity in general..colors/font/etc), letterhead, business cards, the whole thing. Someone else is taking care of web stuff.
He's asking me to give him a rough idea of what it would all cost, and I was thinking between 1,000 and 2,000.. But I'm really bad at figuring out how much to charge.
Anyone have any idea? haha
