What do you like creating?

What do our GraphicsCode users like designing? Is it an avatar, signature or wallpaper?

The poll is multiple choice as I reckon some users can’t choose. Tell what you voted on, please!

I think you’re in the wrong place. Most of the folks here do real graphic design, not that stuff…Well, at least not for a living, LOL!

I like recreating logos that my client has had done elsewhere and hasn’t paid for - I usually get a screenshot or a photo of the screen taken on their phone.

I also enjoy re-doing artwork that some amateur has done and adding bleed to make it look professional.

Most of all, though, I like to create artwork that I can post online - so that someone else can use them without paying me or giving me any credit whatsoever.

In my spare time I do real jobs for real clients that appreciate the effort and pay me very well for my skills.

I like doing one-off pet projects for wealthy clients with time and money to burn. Usually, it’s a vain endeavor to personalize some upscale possession and make it cooler than their friends’ similar items. I’ve done designs for laser-etched bicycle wheels, embroidered car upolstery, printed drum heads and wraps, one-of-a-kind scale models, and even tombstones. These jobs aren’t abundant, and the clients can be eccentric, but when one comes along, my love for this profession is renewed every time.

I’m unfamiliar with GraphicsCode. Did you intend to post a link to a poll of some kind. New forum members can’t post links (it’s a spam-prevention thing). I’ve upped your user level by a notch, which should enable you to do that if you’d like.

As for what kind of work I like to design, it’s work where clients clearly communicate their goals and objectives, and then mostly stay out of the way and defer to my advice. As for the work I dislike the most, it’s the opposite of what I just mentioned.

Of course, more important than that is getting paid, but that’s not really the design work itself.

Um, no.
