I'm new here, so hopefully I'm posting this in a place where I can find some answers. I work for a printing company in the division that publishes a weekly community newspaper. My chief duty has been layout and ad design for the newspaper, but I also do
print design for the parent company. I've been here for a little over a year and have been sailing along nicely until our principal designer left a couple weeks ago. Since then I've been having a heck of a time with stuff because I'm not at all well-versed
in prepress. Many of my jobs have been coming back to me with issues of color separation - mainly in regards to the blacks. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend good, thorough resources for questions when it comes to prepress because as of right now I'm
just stumbling through employing the "cross my fingers and hope it works" method - which doesn't always work. ;-)
I am new to AIGA so please forgive me if this is posted in the wrong place. I am desperately trying to find someone to make 10 clamshells for presentation. Does anyone know of anyone in this business.
How's it going? I'll keep this pretty short but I'm in need of a little advice. I'm new to SF and I've been struggling to find any design work. I have some previous agency experience plus freelance but have failed to hold a steady job since I was laid off
in 09'. I finished grad school earlier this year to add work to my portfolio but I'm starting to be unsure of it. The main thing I've been told as to why I'm not getting hired/an interview is because I don't have the experience. Are there any suggestions on
getting expereience without it? Or in your honest opinion is the work I have not that good? (portfolio moelmore.format.com)
I'm reaching out to get some unbiased opinions so thanks for taking the time to read this or respond.
Hi AIGA Members,
I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction? I'm looking for a design internship / entry level job with a team driven studio.
If anyone is interested in connecting you can reach me at: email@example.com
I understand this is kind of stretch, but I would appreciate any advise or connections.
I live in the small capital city of Providence, Rhode Island. Probably one of the most challenging cities I've lived in as an Artist/Designer, also a city with plenty of opportunity...if you know the game. That game is called inclusion vs. exclusion. In
the Art and Design community this "game" is like high school. Artists are judged by their appearance and who or what groups they belong to, not by their works. Now, I'm pretty outgoing, I know how to promote myself and where to be and who to talk to if I
want to be involved. Include me don't include me, I'll move on. What about those artists and designers who are introverts? Maybe a little to shy or socially uncomfortable around those that make the decisions on who to include or not? How many great artists
are going unnoticed because we judge their appearance and not their portfolio? In Providence for professional Freelance Artists and designers, it's bad enough that there is the highschool yearbook mentality, we also have to compete with the common question
of "Oh, did you go to RISD, or are you with such and such organization?" NO! Neither did my amazing self promoted greeting card photograper Wife. She exeplifies the phrase "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave
a trail." So to you my fellow Artist and Designers, set your own path and try not to let the judgements bring you down. Don't let the Exclusionary tactics of others stop you. Keep creating and sharing your work....NEVER GIVE UP.
