The Blank Slate: Do You Sell Stock Graphics?

The Blank Slate: Do You Sell Stock Graphics?

As designers in this economy it only makes sense that we do all that we can to supplement our income between client projects. And luckily, there are plenty of opportunities out there for us to do that. It could range from selling stock photos and graphics, web themes, templates and mock-ups, and even video and audio files. The possibilities are endless, and I know that some have even built a steady income and began making a living selling stock art exclusively.

The Blank Slate: What is Your Favorite Brand?

The Blank Slate: What is Your Favorite Brand?

As designers we are often tasked with creating a brand for a business. Sometimes this is a simple logo design and collateral, and sometimes it’s a large scale brand strategy that includes everything from logo, imagery and style to secondary colors and usage rules. It’s always a fun gig to learn about what makes a brand tick and help to put a face on it. When a client truly understands the importance of branding and the message they want to convey, it can be very exciting to bring that message to life visually.

The Blank Slate: Do You Work on Spec?

The Blank Slate: Do You Work on Spec?

I’ve rarely encountered a client that has asked for me to work on spec, but I know it does happen to a lot of designers. I’ve even seen websites where clients post their projects and designers try to land the gig by submitting work on spec. Frankly, I believe this is a problem, and devalues the industry as a whole. For those who have never encountered a spec request before, lets define spec work.

The Blank Slate: Where Have We Seen Your Work?

No matter how many projects you’ve worked on in your design career there is always that feeling when you see your work in print, out in the world. I’ve worked on a lot of projects over the years, and I still get a little tiny thrill every time I see my work in public. Whether you’re a new designer just getting your feet wet or a seasoned professional with hundreds of projects under your belt, I guarantee the feeling is the same every time.

The Blank Slate: Your First Design Job

The Blank Slate: Your First Design Job

When I first graduated from art school, just over 10 years ago, the bottom had fallen out of the “dot com” bubble and finding work in the digital design world was next to impossible. I was able to land a few freelance gigs here and there, but that was difficult for a student with basically no professional experience. After months of searching I finally landed my first full-time gig.

The Blank Slate: Designer or Illustrator?

The Blank Slate: Designer or Illustrator?

I once heard someone describe the difference between a “Designer” and an “Illustrator” as follows… A designer assembles pre-exisiting elements such as photos, vectors, and textures to create a final piece. Whereas an Illustrator creates a piece by hand, creating element from scratch using his/her imagination.
