  • Need feedback for school work.

    Hi everyone, I hope you are having a nice Sunday!

    I had to do a 2D and 3D design for my school. I would like some feedback for my work.

    Would you agree that my skateboard design is 3D?
    I have decided to make it black and white as Pause Noire means Black Pause (break).
    I actually made this sign in real life, couple of month ago, except that the logo was made of multicolour Acrylic paint that I applied with a tooth brush through a stencil. Anyway, I thought Black and white was more readable.

    What do you think of the Biz Card?
    Again, I have decided to go black and white. I made this business card design couple of month ago and I got it printed.
    I have printed only a couple as I will change the email address during this year when I will finish my new website.

    Do you think going black and white would be an issue? I have some (coloured) work in my portfolio though...
    Thanks for your help.

    Ps I wish I was writing this from the Chesterfield couch. Looks real cool...

    I'm not going to agree your lobby sign is 3D.
    You've basically built your sign board out of skateboards. The logo itself is 2D painted on the surface of the signboard.

    Here are some examples of simple 3D sign art for lobbies.

    I would certainly ditch the idea of a light bulb for a logo for a designer. Way, WAY too cliche.

    The logo on the card... first, have a look at those lobby logos above. Do you know how large those strokes would have to be to back light something like that? Even in plastic or metal one would be hard pressed to put studs into that to hold it up.
    It also reads almost perfectly as P M, rather than P N.

    Nothing wrong with black and white for a business card, but I will ask, ''how did they look when printed?''
    White type that small tends to fill in quite a bit when knocked out of what appears to be a 4-color black. Are the letters sharp and clear?
    If not, it reflects poorly on your choices.
    Looks more like a card for a photographer than a designer but you say you are an artist as well so it may fly. Did you take the photo?

          Online printing folders with inserts of varying sizes
          Anyone know who I'd go to for printing fliers at varying sizes? I like using the big online ones because they make it easy. But I need to print a folder and then print inserts that have varying sizes...

          I don't pay for these kinds of things either.

          This is actually a pretty good example of why a photoshop artist needs to know how to draw.

          I wouldn't pay for a subscription to any free-stock site. The quality is often not there, to begin with.
