    Cover Layout Feedback

    I've been exploring more with minimalism, but still trying to keep things logical. This is a 11x17 cover for a recent undergrad project I've been working on. Does it work? Why or why not? The blue wacked...

    Now i have no real experience working with clients but in my opinion you did what most designers should do. You are being hired as a designer not an artist. Its our job to create work that makes sense....

    I really like the aesthetic.

    Will you do more in the series? You could have a different design for different departments.

    Cool idea but I'm not convinced that font will work in every situation. Can they remove Comic Sans from all government computers? That would be a nice start.

    I do find them a bit boring. I think the layout and graphics themselves are too simple. I think you can definitely try adding some more detail to the graphics and experiment a bit more with your layo...

  • conversations only graphic designers would have with each other....

    Hey guys, You know how graphic designers are totally different to everyone else?

    Just want to get some ideas about what designers talk about to eachother.
    like how we analyze the opening credits at that start of a movie.....and how
    we can have an hour long conversation about a texture.....

    Also trying to come up with hypothetical questions that designers would ask themselves.

    example: If you were stranded on a deserted island, which typeface would you take and why?

    If you could sleep with one typeface, who would it be and why?

    If you had one design super power, what would it be?
    and what type of graphic designer do you want to be when you grow up?
    I need similar questions to these......if anybody has any ideas......cheers

      I don't know about any quirky conversations or questions, but I did have a second helping of kern on the cob last night. It helps keep my typesetting regular.

        my super-designer power would be ctrl+z. but i've often wanted to have an eyedropper that would sample from real life.

        I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.

            I agree. I also wish life had background music. Everything would be so much better. Like in horror movies, if the people could hear the background music, there would be a lot less death rates.

              my super power would be eyedropper...my favorite tool....

              If I could sleep with a typeface,...would probably be any of the egyptian typefaces (century schoolbook) because they would probably be quite the ticklers....

              my favorite graphic design term is....widow...because if I say it...my coworkers don't know what I'm talking about!

                The typeface I'd take to a desert island would be Hamburger!

                I'd sleep with Naughty Candy...

                  That's funny, Ryan... I've always said that I wanted to have my own theme song. You know, like Darth Vader!

                    yeah and it would play everytime you walked into a new setting.
                    funny you mention darth vader, because my theme would be this jungle remix of the emperor's song I heard the other day.
                    super power: command-z, but illustrator style so i can go back as far as i need to

                    Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?

                      Mine would be the intro to Enter Sandman by Metallica.

                      But I'd probably have to change it every now and then to keep 'em guessing.

                        Wow....Metallica released 'Enter Sandman' from the 'And Justic for All' album when I was in the..umm..9th grade I think. That means I was what - 15? and I am 29 now so Ryan you were like...2 or 3?!!?
