    Reply to Charter Schools Brochure

    I like the overall aesthetic too. Along with the things commented on by the others, I also notice that numbering under "EFFC Acomplisments" does not align with the top of paragraphs, and seems...

    Reply to RGB or HEX values to Pantone?
    skribe
    As I mentioned in a post just recently I nearly always have the client get their hands on some pantone books and have them choose the colors themselves. If they are local they can look at mine, if they...

    Thanks Buda. I don't know what text will go on the front. Unfortunately, I don't have a wide selection of photos to choose from so I chose one that was telling the end goal of charter school education....

    This whole question is making my head explode.

    There are millions of RGB combinations. There are only 3000-and-change Pantone colors.
    What do you have as a reference for the RGB values....

  • What are you working on?

    Because I am a lonesome soul here at work, I'd like to engage in some conversation with what are some of the things on the GDF's workload.

    I'm the only designer/production guy here in the studio. 3 empty desks all filled with Apple desktops and silvery screens but no one to talk to, I don't even have a cellphone to text message like minded designers. It's been like this ever since I have worked here since I took over the senior designers AND intermediate designers position. Occasionally the boss's kids come in and cause mayhem and I get to have a chat to the son but that's about as far as it goes in terms of light hearted conversation.

    Without any details, what is everyone working on?

    Right now my workload consists of a portal-website for a local prominent sports team, finishing off the creative work for a local candidate's political campaign, organising and laying out a branding guide for an airports rebrand and starting an annual report as well as a 2012 programme (for sports team).

    My desk is full of test prints and listed changes all spearheaded with a "TURN OFF A/C" sign stuck to the rim of it.

    So......alone.....

    Asked the client for a vector logo, got a 50x50 pixel gif with a drop shadow. Just finished tracing it from an old brochure. A nice Sunday at the office.

      Had to do that on Friday.

      Boss's son does a few odd jobs every now and then. He designed a logo for a client who usually has a minimal budget. It wasn't bad, however it was done in Photoshop.

          Oh good. No surprises in email

          Pending copy: a newsletter, 2 ads and a booklet

          On hold: a set of forms and a bookmark

          At printer (need to check delivery status): a monthly calendar and 2 posters

          In the design process: a booklet

          In approvals: two fiyers and a desktop sign, along with a set of 15 fact sheets. Oh, and the wayfinding for our new building and the formatting of our new electronic wayfinding directories

                          I remember taking avocado sandwiches to school for lunch as a 9yr old.

                          Would creep all the kids out (it's common for kids around here to dislike avocados). Mum would occasionally slip in mayo with it. She'd have a grumpy kid come home from school.

                            I'm designing an invite for a friend's baby shower. I have a painting to finish by mid-February and several jobs to apply for this week. Also, talking to an old friend about designing a logo for his new physical therapy clinic. I plan to draw a dinorsaur tomorrow and maybe start a blog.

                            Yes, I'm unemployed.

                              Today I've been working on my tan. No work today, all of Auckland have the day off
                              It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh
