I’ve noticed that there are several younger artists on this board asking pretty basic questions. That is not an insult. I got a great answer from someone for what, to him, was a basic question, but for me was a problem. I’m very experienced but needed someone with specific knowledge. I found that through several good posts from the contributors here. So I have an idea.
How about we create a topic/thread/room just for advice for young artists that answers basic questions, points to resources, and maybe even gives them inspiration or hope?
At least once a week I go back and forth by email with a young artist to help them prepare files for print. I go through things like smallest barcode size that’s scannable, bleed sizes digital vs flexo, rgb printing better at home but industry is cmyk and how to bridge that gap…
Other people here have great insight on other areas: theory, style, whatever…
I could start with the same checklist we use where I work for production as a great reference that will save a lot of time and pressure on the next generation.
I’m thinking it would be a “Start Here” for young artists type thing.
Is anyone into this idea?
