    Hi Shadz10 and welcome to GDF.

    I edited your post because we don't allow advertising on this forum. Plus, the bulk of forum members are designers, so there's no sense trying to sell your services to us. Also, as a new member, you can't get PMs yet.

    We ask all new members to read very important links here and here. These explain the rules, how the forum runs and a few inside jokes. No, you haven't done anything wrong, we ask every new member to read them. Your first few posts will be moderated, so don't panic if they don't show up immediately. Enjoy your stay.

      This begs the question:
      What, exaclty, is the difference between a Graphic Artist and a Graphic Designer?

        Officially? I don't have a clue.

        In my mental sorting drawer, a Graphic Artist would be someone who produces graphics, or "artwork," perhaps as a member of a Graphic Design team.

        A Graphic Designer is someone who produces reactions via the design of strategic systems; identity systems, signage, campaigns, exhibits, visual experiences.

        I'd hire a graphic artist to conceive and produce an auto-mechanic mascot guy for the cover of an auto parts catalog, and I'd hire a graphic designer to organize the products and information, devise hierarchy and visual cues, and design page layouts to the usability and appeal of the target audience.

        But that's just me.
        I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.

          On a side note, Subway should have Sandwich Designers, and Perhaps Sandwich Directors. And maybe even some Sandwich UI/UX experts you know, just to mix it up.

            Subway is one of the reasons I've pretty much given up on chain eateries.

                  Good point, but in my opinion it's distracting in a portfolio and lacks attention to detail when displaying work.

                  Ha, I noticed the printing and registration marks and thought it refreshing to see a designer who knows to include them....

                  This might come across as a snobbish perspective. And I do work in a very weird corner of the design industry, where the theatrical/digital/print world all intersect.
