  • recreating an image

    I have a client whose wedding invitations I will be working on. She saw something online she liked and sent it to me as an example of the style she wants. I sent her some proofs back... using different fonts, paper, and it includes a graphic. She replied saying she likes everything... except she wants to stick closer to the original graphic. I have no problem redrawing it, and I'm sure I can sell her on slight modifications. But where is the line here if she ends up unmoving in her vision? How close to the original is too close?

    That line is drawn by how hungry you are.
    Personally, I would try asking her more about the event and try to capture that into a more personalized graphic, but you gotta be willing to take the risk to do it. Study the sample she sent you and try to capture the same feeling, but capture her/them also.

    Design is not decoration.

      What is the origin of the image the client likes? If it's freebie clip art, you're free to redraw it. If it's a copyrighted photo or drawing, even redrawing it may give you possible legal issues. Try to trace the image back to it's owner and see what you're working with exactly.

      Then as Keming said, you'll need to make a judgment call.
      Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.

        Just remember when you make that judgement call that copyright law is not founded upon personal opinion. It is U.S. and international law.

          This is what I was looking for, I don't know how to phrase what I meant better. Perhaps, these were for fun. Could you tell me if they are successful in using design elements like negative space, font,...

          Food is one of the worst subjects to photograph. There's a whole art to making food appear appetizing, mostly by doing all kinds of unappetizing things to it. A photog friend of mine was into it for a...

          You have 2 days. That's 48 hours with a lot of coffee. If something is not working, you fix it.Making more work for yourself isn't part of the equation. A client's piece is about the client, not about...
