    A book? There's hundreds. People spend years studying this and trying to figure it out. Not sure it can just be learned in a book (although a lot of books will advertise themselves to do that).

    Agreed with the above points. Also, to me, it feels a little amateurish to go straight for the fortune 500 companies rather than starting with the little guys. A start up is very unlikely to get work...

    Sounds like the first thing you need to do is some more broad research to see what information is out there that you could write your essay on. Try the web, of course, but also go to the library and browse...

    The logo looks a little like the web ten years ago when bevel and emboss were used a lot, so if you're a web designer and developer it makes you look behind the times. Take a look at current logo design...

    Maybe start with not using Photoshop to create logos.
    If you are using Illustrator, don't rely on the bevel and extrude function to give you adequate shading. If you look at that in wireframe, what...

    Honestly my favorite piece is your resume. I think overall your portfolio shows a pretty good design sense and potential. I'm not crazy about the EPA poster, the concept or the execution and seems like it would be a nightmare to print. I would say you have a good start, and to keep building your portfolio with self initiated projects while you're looking.

      Well...its not terrible. But its not all that impressive either. I think you have some of the basics of design down, but the execution is whats killing it. Its underwhelming and pass-worthy. And there aren't enough pieces. If you're only gonna show 9 pieces, make the 9 pieces BAD ASS. Some of the pieces (the logos particularly) looks like something anyone could throw together in 30minutes.

      Sorry to be harsh, but you're up against a lot of competition out there.

        He's nailed it, you have a ways to go my friend. Your portfolio had only one piece that hit me in the face. That was the outta time article, I thought it was executed fairly well. Other pieces, not so much.. Your gobstoppers art in particular redesign came off as extremely weak to me.

        I'd strongly recommend continuing creating more personal projects, whether they be posters, logos or business cards.

          Oh and comfort zone shirt isn't terrible, I liked that as well. Just thought I'd give you one pat on the back after such a mean post.

            Wasn't there a bunch of sample CVs doing the rounds with Steve Morrisson name on them before?

              Maybe you're referring to Steve Stevenson ? http://misterstevenson.com/
              The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.
