I'm an award winning graphic designer, web designer and illustrator. I'm open for commission and freelance work. I rarely re-blog things, but some stuff catches my eye. Below are things I like and to the left are things I think. Choose wisely.
so my portfolio show reception is thursday night and it’s fancy and at a museum and there’s gonna be art directors of different companies talking to us and ;laksdjf
I have to get a new portfolio to put my work in
and find business casual shoes since I have sneakers or 5+ inch heels and that’s about it
and hopefully my blank business cards will come in today so I can make screen them tonight/tomorrow because I wasn’t about to pay a place to print them and have to get an obscene amount
actually I should make a silk screen and get my printing area ready so I can just screen them as soon as I get them
Just putting this out there for ALL students.
If you wanna be cheap, go Itoya. If you want quality, go Prat. Look for durability, and buy 2 in case you need to mail one or give it to a recruiter. You don’t need anything more complicated than that Prat, and any professor that tells you otherwise is full of it.
Unless you’re going for a corporate job and nervous, a newish paid of jeans + fresh sneakers + a quality shirt & belt and you’re good. The day I switched from an uncomfortable suit to something I’m more used to wearing my offers went up dramatically. Confidence comes from being comfortable.
If you can’t afford cheap cards (PSPrint, Overnight Prints, JakPrints) and do your own, try to mix a few “versions” in. 2-3 1-color cards, especially handing out multiple colors at once, looks cool.
Never order a lot of cards. I’ve hardly ever gone through more than 150 before they look stale and boring to me.
Clients like to see physical things. Employers don’t really care.
I’ll file that under “Things I wish I knew” when I was a fresh fish.
2012 was a really successful year for me. Landed some great projects with great people, was published in @denisebosler’s excellent book, won two #design awards for my work @mountaincreek (including the awesome #MountainCreekBikePark), moved to a new sweet apartment and adopted a #cat too smart for his own good.
Hopefully #2013 will be just as good, for both myself and all of you amazing people out there.
Good luck and good morning! (at Donner’s Life of Leisure)
