This is my first real thing I've made. I'm trying to make a poster for the TV Show House and i'm planning on printing it out and hanging it up and shit on some nice ass glossy paper. Can anyone give me any improvements I can make to this? I don't think it's worth the $20 to print yet.
>>240877 Get rid of the black outline around the irises. I don't like the addition of the text; it looks better with a cleaner design. Also, maybe clean up around his mouth. He looks a bit like he just ate a lemon.
I've been developing an add-on for Firefox that involves a browser and notification system for Twitch.tv. Recently I received a review by one user whose only complaint was that he didn't like the icon. The original icon was quickly thrown together by me and was meant to emphasize the alarm feature, which used to be the central focus point of the add-on but is now somewhat of a secondary feature. Brand image has never really concerned me but I feel that I could gather more users and appeal to a wider audience by improving my image.
The main focus of the icon... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
oh, are you the guy that made Twitch Alarm? You have my thanks. The thick black border on the bell in the first logo is really the only major flaw, if you changed it to a dark yellow or something it would be a marginally better logo.
What does the rightmost logo look like when it's an icon on the Firefox top bar? Because that's how people will see it 99% of the time.
if any professionals could answer me a couple of questions I'd greatly appreciate it.
1. do graphic designers still need to present printed portfolios or is just a portfolio website enough?
2. is it a steady work flow if you work for an agency? are you still allowed to freelance?
3. after graduating whats the best route to take? I live in new york so I assumed my best option would be to apply to places in the city. is a good portfolio with an associates in commercial arts and a certificate in website design enough? should I go to more school?

I really just want a digital design job at an agency that pays decently. I'm not sure what title that should be but my ideal salary for it would be like 40-60k. I'm not trying to be senior art director or anything like that.
I appreciate the insight. I know my questions are all pretty vague and depend on the situation.
also do you think an internship would pay off? Id rather skip that if possible but id do one if it was beneficial enough.
1. Honestly, I think it's personal preference at this point. Having a printed portfolio sure as hell doesn't hurt though, and if there's ever a time to go the extra mile, it's when you're applying to jobs. Obviously doesn't make sense if your work is mostly digital though.
2. What >>240705 said. Work ebbs and flows in most kinds of office jobs though, I think. It's very standard practice to allow employees to freelance as long as they're not working on shit that could be seen as competition... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Figured since this is paid work, I'd ask here. Looking for someone to redesign my video game studio's logo. Didn't want to do any of the freelance websites cause no one speaks english there or understands what I want. They just keep giving me stock answers.
I made the logo here. I was following mostly Nintendo's logo design with the red colors and simple design, but I don't mind what colors or design you use for this.
I need some help. First off... I might as well mention that I have been a freelance graphic artist for two years now and I still have a lot to learn.
My girlfriend's father is starting his own business and asked me to create a logo for him for free. Naturally I said I’d do it because I’m dating the man's daughter. But doing the logo free is not the problem... I care about my girlfriend's father and want his business to succeed so I agreed to do the logo. The problem arises when he was describing what he wanted as a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Your logo is a stearing wheel? Its pretty nice, but maybe you can make it more define. Its a bit too abstract. The logo on the right is just too boring. And the name dont even match that boring golf cart.
Maybe put two golf clubs behind the stearing wheel?
Tell him that his company name doesn't match the logo on the right.
>>240536 Thanks for the quick response! /gd/ is normally pretty dead.
I understand the argument about it being too abstract. The only problem I see with the golf club idea is that he makes really suped up carts that are really just for cruising around, they likely won't ever see a golf course.
Also here are some extra rough drafts of the logo, just for kicks
Hey /gd/, I just bought Illustrator and I want to learn how to use it. I have some experience in Photoshop, but nothing pro level, and I want to switch to Illustrator. Can you guys give me some basic tips and techniques? Or a link to good a tutorial.
