    Comment on Personal Logo for Resume (FAST)

    I've never understood the arbitrary "skill scale" of ranking how great you are at using a particular program. What exactly are measuring your proficiency in each program?

    First question in my mind is why the mesh looking gradient on the circle? Kinda distracts my eye from the words. I'd suggest going for a flat approach and just use a shade of purple. What keening matters...

    Yeah I understand what you guys are saying. :3 I know I'm more than just someone who thinks they can call themselves a designer just because they make pretty work. I actually get minor headaches when...

    Thanks for the advice. What if I take the logo on the back, center the words and add white space to both sides? Like add white space on the top right corner since I'm printing them in matte so they...

  • Hi from Aotearoa/New Zealand

    Hi Everyone

    Time to introduce myself!

    Amongst other things I'm Mynx. I used to be a scientist but have decided now that if/when I grow up (I hope I never do) I want to be a graphic designer. I can't believe it took me so long to figure this out - really I've been an almost graphic designer for years! In primary school my teacher used to give me time off lessons to draw assignments for projects he was working on And a large portion of my success as a scientist was my communication skills (including visual - posters, powerpoint presentations etc).

    So I'm off back to school next week to do a diploma in Digital Graphic Design. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better and hopefully getting some useful feedback on some of my projects I already understand the dangers of working in isolation!

    Toodly-pip!

    Mynx

            Kia ora fellow kiwi. Where abouts in NZ are you?

                  Maybe some of the lands west of you and east of us like Europe, Africa and the middle east. In the US it's afternoon on Election Day and it's quite the presidential race. Many in these parts won't be going to sleep anytime soon.

                      Thank you lovely people!

                      Especially for the sparkly bits

                      So nice to have so many of you awake - I have lots of friends in the UK so they're usually zzzzzzing when I'm awake.

                      I didn't REALLY forget about the US, and the huge day you're having there! Just be sure to let me know when it's 5pm your time so I can have a gin - it's always 5pm somewhere in the world, right?

                      Arohanui,
                      Mynx

                          Yup, I'm in Auckland. All I know about Kapiti is that you guys make good cheese!

                          Mmmmm....cheese....so hungry. I wish lunch time would roll around faster.
