    I would remove that bit where you "rank" you abilities with software.
    I've seen it done a bunch of times and am only left to wonder what it is really supposed to mean.

    I mean you admittedly know nothing of the field or what's involved to producing stickers/skins but you appear to think that it's as easy as buying some software and a machine to print some easy money....

    My advice would be to let go of the idea that you can produce "skins" as a home-based business. It's hard to imagine how you came to think it might be possible, when you admittedly know nothing...

  • Researching Design for Nationalities

    Having started at a design company in Shanghai, I've been getting a major crash-course in cultural differences when it comes to design imagery, layout, colors and font.

    We are currently working on a project that will be targeting countries here in the Far East, Latin America and the Middle East. I'm wading through what I can find online to research how each country approaches and relates to design, but I also wanted to check in here.

    Does anyone have a particular resource you've found useful for gaining better knowledge of cultural design?

    I did find this thread here that helped explore the approach in general: http://www.graphicdesignforum.com/fo...ural+influence
