  • Hello - seems so generic for these intro thread titles

    I'm Brooke, a designer from the Chicagoland area. I have over 10 years experience in design but still feel I have a lot to learn. Started in Photoshop, then learned Quark and a bit of Illustrator. At this point, I work daily in web and print design including everything from newsletter template creations, content management systems, photo editing, layout for brochures, catalogs, flyers, invitations, save-the-dates, etc. I love print layout the most and am working on getting to do that more.

    This past July I was fortunate enough to start r3 multimedia group with my brother, cousin and father. We are a creative image boutique with me as the head designer, my cousin as the head photographer, my brother as the social media expert and my father as the most important person - the investor. LOL I've taken on the role of leader in the business and it's a hard role to maintain.

    I'm also a mom of two boys (8 & 5), own a website for moms and am involved in a handful of councils/groups for women in business and for the kids schools. In other words, I barely have a free moment.

    I've been a member of a photoshop group for awhile but rarely work in Photoshop anymore. Thus, GDF seems like a perfect fit. I'm constantly looking to further educate myself on typography, prepress and good design.

        Do you have an online portfolio we can view that showcases some of your ability?

        What were the reasons you were laid off from other two jobs? Was it still a speed issue or was it the small...

        Hi John and welcome to GDF.

        I agree with your teacher - there's a lot going on in these. I think getting rid of some of the sub-heading text (if that was even an option) would have been...

        I get an error trying to see the larger images, but from what I see on the smaller images, I agree with your teacher. It does look cluttered and the heirarchy is weird. It doesn't direct your eye around...

        Right. If the blue and green are too bright, it quickly gets tacky, but kept darker and subdued like the red you've got going, I think they'd be sweet, and it would serve as one more visual cue to facilitate...

        That is absolutely something to keep in mind. I've never been a big fan of suits that aren't red or black, but it does present some options. Thanks!
