    Why isn't Graphic Designer centered underneath your name?

    I know it is supposed to be a wolf's tail, but it looks like a fox's tail. (probably because of the context of that background rust color)


    I would caution against having a colored...

    Since you're "Not for Profit", do you get all of the bike parts and materials for acknowledgement on your team page and bike? Just curious...

    Cool bikes and an interesting hobby...

    Hi Plopes and welcome to GDF.

    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...

  • 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?

    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.

          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.
          I like it better when it hurts.

            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.

                              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.
