  • 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.

          It's an old thread, but I'll jump in.

          1. Too many people regard designers as simply being those with the tool-using skills to implement client ideas and make suggestions about making things...

          Looks nice, but as Kayekaye said, the shadows need some work. Shadows are never an even gray. In the real world, the shadows very close to where the balls meet the surface would be nearly black and fade...

          I'll suggest soaking up everything you're told -- even when it's with a grain of salt. At this point your professors know more than you, and there'll be plenty of time a ways down the road (when you've...

          Reply to Typesetting. Can you spot my obsession?

          I don't think today's typesetting is comparable to Gutenberg's work. It's a bit like comparing the Wright brothers to contemporary aviation engineers. Both Gutenberg and the Wright brothers made huge,...

          If this is for you as a designer its is way too busy. Do some research and design a much more streamlined layout based on a grid.
