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

    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.

  • Retail Box Sketches

    Hi all.

    So, this is my first request for a critique, and I'm showing my very first, very elementary process of designing the box (with the exception to my briefing notes and photos taken at a store for research).

    So my company is proudly launching a new product early next month. We're are just about wrapping up the manufacturing and now have to finish the box within a week (so that's why I'm uploading incomplete sketches, so I can get some feedback over the weekend).

    I'm not really sure what all I can say about the product due to non-disclouse agreements, but I'd imagine that it's safe with our release date so close. I would like to ask you all to maybe refrain from mentioning the product name, however, so this post stays away from google crawlers.

    So, it's a touchless paper-towel dispenser that mounts under the cabinet. We already have the photos taken, so you'll notice the same sketch in each of the drawings (I'll also post the photo).

    Please take a look at these sketches and let me know your thoughts. Thanks! (oh, and the one in marker is for no special emphasis. I just sketch with a light pencil and tried that to darken the lines).

    Check out the sketchs at gallery.me.com/c.hain/100051

    Oh, and for Ss and Gs, I'm posting what the original designer had roughed.

    Much better if you could link your sketches and post them directly in the forum use the icon to insert the URL.

      Didn't think I could do that with mobileMe - but looks like I can (I just don't know how to scale down, I'm sorry).





      That's all that really necessary to crit. The original box design is still at that link if you'd like to take a peek FYE

        And I just noticed how kindergarden my lines look when I traced them - especially the first one. My bad. Oof.
