    "but I have always been led to believe that the degree isn't as important as talent/know-how in graphic design..."

    Here, without a degree, it's not likely anyone will ever know...

    We don't even consider applications that don't list a degree where I work, though even people with degrees can have terrible portfolios. Out of probably 30 applicants from our most recent opening, maybe...

    Honestly, if you are unsure, it's better to under design. People who are new to design have this tendency to put everything they can think of into a design. Design is just as much about culling and restraint....

    We have a $250,000 digital printer and the backups can be up to 2mm out. That is within specifications.

    So the answer is no. It's near impossible to get a printer that is bang on. Which is...

    Looks like it's not a free font. But $25 for four fonts in a typeface is really reasonable.

  • Movie poster project

    I am doing a project at uni where we have to redesign posters for 3 different movies, I'm doing Memento, Vertigo and Fargo.... here is the Memento one...



    What do you think?

    I will also post Vertigo and Fargo when they are done.

    (Just realised all the films end in 'o' - coincidence...)

      looks great! the only thing that bothers me is the bottom text, it's really difficult to read it appears all the letters run together. Might be too light on the white background. just a thought.

        It looks good, my suggestions:

        1) The title font seems to be laying on top of the paper slip. If you photographed it, re-shoot with the title on the slip of paper and crumpled, right now the type seems to perfect on top of crumpled paper.

        2) The physical size of the supporting cast/production crew is bigger than the stars of the film. Maybe try finding a new way to either display the cast, or the crew.

          thats weird, cos i DID write the 'memento' on the paper before i photographed it! but you're right it does look as if its layed on top afterwards - but i promise you it isnt! lol

          will work on the cast/crew text too thanks

            It's probably because the photo is so contrasty. There's no tonal range on the letters to indicate unevenness and it's such a saturated black that it stands out like it's just been dropped on top. I suppose the directly overhead view is also negating some of the odd angles you would expect to see.

                  I'm from the midwest myself but now live in North Carolina - have for over 20 years. Whenever I see "Fargo" I start talking like that again. lol

                  I agree...I like the other two posters best. WHERE'S THE SNOW? On the TV screen?

                      How about the type in blood dripping on the snow? That one part with the woodchipper was really gross!
