    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...

  • Stock Photos for Templates

    I'm looking to research stock photos for use in newsletter templates, i've noticed some stock sites seem to forbid such use, any suggestions?

    Yes, templating is usually not allowed. You would have to contact the image house directly and arrange for special licensing. It will cost money.

    Just because a website tells you it can't be done doesn't mean they are unwilling to create a special license to grant certain permissions if the right amount of cash is flashed.

    Sometimes the image house is bound by contract to the owner of the image too. They have the ultimate say.

So it sounds like this would be too expensive to get pictures for...

          try www.istockphoto.com - not sure what their policy is exactly, but I think you can use them for commercial use. Not the best photos in the world, but there is some good stuf, and it's cheap!

          www.istockpro.com is the pro version
