    It's artsy, made-up school work that's largely divorced from professional graphic design. This might have worked in a fine arts-oriented academic program, but in a job interview, it will mostly serve...

  • Suggestions for stock photo sites


    I am on a project that requires stock photography. I'm finding that stock photography is great if you want to create anything about skinny, white people really enjoying life. I am looking more for the average joe, not great looking, 10-20 lbs overweight, non-white, doing everyday activities (not drinking coffee, checking their stocks on the laptop).

    Are there any stock sites that might offer me what I'm looking for?

    Thank you

    Good luck on your search. Unfortunately the vast majority of it is young, photogenic white people checking their email/attending a meeting/pointing at a monitor.

      do a search on "overweight" at You should find plenty.

        My two sites :-))
        e-Cobo is FREE. The other one is paid, but the resolution is up to A3+@300dpi

   is great, whether you need images, or are looking to sell some.

            You get 50 cents for every sale, and the minimum payout (paypalled to you, or sent by check) is only $30. Slap 100 or so pics up there, let them sit - and make money for you. That's what I do here's my link, to show you what types of stuff they accept, it's really easy and free too.

                Those are also my two most used.

                However, for more expensive high-quality photos, I will also suggest or
