  • the ROOOOLS of design...

    (kind of a spin off from the classic lines from clients thread..)
    i dunno if you guys did this already but i reckon we should have a list of GDF rules we must show to all clients before they offer us work...

    something similar to:

    1: Unless we've agreed on a price or I'm on salary, i will not 'do 5 different designs for you to choose from'.
    2: I will not accept your logo in 72dpi gif or jpg format for printwork.
    3: 3 A4 sides of text in word will not fit in an A5 advert.
    4: When sending an image to me, do not insert it in a Word file before you send it.
    5: I will not use 'comic sans'. Ever.

    ...etc. What do you think?
    can you think of any more?
    The beginning is always today.

    starbursts are evil.

    I will not replace the letter S with a $ - it isn't clever, it looks cheap.

    Swooshes do not a logo make.

    The fact that an image shows up on google image search does not make it public domain.

        My printer will not fix your phone number while he fixes his miscut on your business cards.

          If you force me to change my design I am not responsible for it looking like crap.
          It's easier to ask forgiveness than permission.

            lol @ PD

            Asking me to work for free will result in unpleasant splinters as my door promptly closes in your face. (*does not apply to charity work)

            I can not rotate the photo of your car so that you can get a front view of it if the image you provided to me is a shot of the side. This is not CSI.

            Placing a photo in a vector program and saving it does not make it a vector file.

            Do not ask me to remove someone else's copyright tagline from the image you got off the internet.

              Do not send work in a Publisher file, especially if it's an 8.5 x 11 broken into four seperate sections to be cut equally and your measurements are off, so I have to help the secretary figure out how to make four cuts instead of two.

              Oh, and I'M THE DESIGNER, NOT YOU.

                    If I ask you to send me your logo and you ask me for my fax number, the deal is dead.

                        If you do not convert your fonts to outlines I will hunt you down like a rabid dog.

                              OMG, I have been laughing for about 3 minutes straight from that!


                              How about:

                              If you don't like the design, tell me what needs to change or it stays as is. I won't randomly make changes until you decide what you want.

                                I'll mention too that most stock image EULA's usually forbid use in logos. Might want to check your stock image license before proceeding.

                                Welcome to the forum. As far as I know, sharing a link to your portfolio is certainly ok. However, advertising links are not ok.

                                Looks like a novelty typeface. The base of it is essentially Copperplate. With someones personal twist to it. It also has elements from a typeface called Copper Penny, particularly the bits within the...

                                It's very important to consider how a piece of art will be produced. If you're like me, through my time as a graphics major in college, print production wasn't a big topic topic of discussion. Where as...
