    Yes the files do get big in Photoshop, but what I mean is that it seems photoshop has more powerful tools to make a piece visually stand out. like the use of textures and masks to add life to a vector...

    Anything that has multiple pages like a brochure, I lay out in InDesign. For something that is one page, like a poster, either InDesign or Illustrator would do fine. Though, InDesign has better output...

    I guess I'm too immersed in the lower end of the profession. I think B2B advertisers budget less of their income towards marketing than B2C. Or maybe they have smaller profit margins.

    While you may want to continue working towards an idea you feel strongly about, the blue circle logo in the last example you shared works well - I like its simplicity.

  • 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.

            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.
