    The one Alcapwne made seems to fit great on our future website and the one Dgg made could be great for perhaps an intro for when you for example, start a game.

    why on earth did garry take them?! did he at least give a reason?

    So guys, i've got some questions.
    I've gone to school for a bit for "Graphic Design" but sadly it was at a community college.
    Not anything against Community College, but the courses were a bit limited. I learned a bit about everything really, but not a ton. I learned about photoshop, a bit about Illustrator, and a bit about printing and running a printing press.
    So, i was wondering where is a good site to maybe get some good starting points to take what i know further.
    Things about typography, logo design, things of that nature that would be helpful for getting more knowledge under my belt so that once i finish school this semester i can get started on making a better portfolio.

    I've found this blog is really good:

    http://www.davidairey.com/

    They have a specific section for branding, typography, colour etc.

    really helpful stuff

    Apologies my good man. I actually convinced myself that I did comment on it. I even showed it to one of the other guys.
    We both like it! The only thing would be if the feathers were in the other side of the hat and stuck in the "band" that goes around the hat.
    Graphically, it is very pleasing too!

    woah so i clicked on that davidairey.com site and the first thing i see is this this business cards done by Moo. which i think sounds like a familiar company so i look on their website and i see their logo, which i know i've already seen somewhere else

    [img]http://directory.ac/files/dumblists/.../logos/moo.jpg[/img]

    a guy in the year above has pretty much the exact same logo in his portfolio, but as a logo for a dairy company and not for a design company.




    and it's obvious that one of these is a rip of the other (i'd struggle to believe otherwise) butttt, this carl guy (from my class) is a quality designer and i don't believe he'd ever rip something off, let alone present it in his portfolio so obviously the same design as Moo Print. but then Moo Print were founded in 2004, which was definitely before he started uni (i.e. created that logo) so i don't know who's ripped who off. i like to think Moo Print had a rebrand and stole their logo then but it could be the other way around.

    it makes me sad. welcome to graphic design, where plagiarism is a very real enemy.

    the two moos aren't that similar, I'm sure there are lots of logos that have a curvy kind of font

    and I think the business card logo is meant to say 'COW' when it's upside down whereas his isn't supposed to

    I really like your posters rusty, though some of your best are the ones where you break from the beige, low colour number grungy style.

    it's a wide format printer, but i've never used it for anything bigger than A3. i lurrve it, although we did have a bit of a falling out earlier today.

    inkjets are superior compared to laser when it comes to printing quality work.

    a laser will easily beat them in time and quantity vs. ink, but the quality isn't comparable, and if you studygraphic design you want a nice quality printer

    I've never used a good inkjet before, all the ones I've used have screwed up the colours and smeared all over the place.

    well a few weeks ago it was feeding the paper in wonky and always used to crumple it up and get jammed, but these days it just doesn't print randomly and I have to often unplug and reconnect the usb cable :(

    for the paper jamming, try using a thicker paper. before i got my printer i read several reviews that said that it used to chew and jam the paper when it was printing at A3 unless you used a thicker paper. general copy paper is 80gsm, but i bought a ream of 100gsm paper and i've never had a problem with it. also make sure you have the plastic guides set up properly to ensure it feeds the paper in straight.

    probably when i get it whapped on my website!

    it's a joke, i've had webspace and domain for just under a year, and have never finished it. always get half way then change my mind about the design and forget about it all. ungh

    Edited:

    or i might just upload it here. but i don't know what you'll all think, because it's not what i think a lot of you have in your mind as "graphic design". there's some branding (i.e. logos) but there's also some projects i think you'll go o_O at.

    but i won't know until i show, right?

    Sucks you had such a limited experience. I wonder how a community college managed to skip by such important design basics like Typography and logo designs? 2 years is plenty of time to squeeze instruction of that nature in.

    My community college design experience was pretty focued. Despite being a "2 year" program, it actually takes 3 years unless you take an extra class each quarter and don't have summers off. Covered pretty much everything from the basics to the programs and to finish off our big capstone project involved inventing a company from the ground up building an entire brand (all the logo design, signage, pictograms, vehicles, building design, etc) for the company. I should say though for my degree, in order to fit it all in within 2-3 years they didn't require me to take hardly any gen-eds other than 3 english, and a couple of other random ones. As such when I transfer to uni this fall I'm pretty much required to do a years worth of gen-eds to get my bachellors, which kinda sucks.

    I wish it had been like that.
    It's a smaller community college, so the guy who taught the class was super cool, and knew a good deal. But his knowledge was mostly in the printing field, as he worked at Missouri University, and other big printing companies doing stuff like proofing, and running the machines.
    But aside from asignments where we were told to pretty much use illustrator, or photoshop, or sometimes indesign to accomplish something, we really pretty much just went at it with the little bit he knew of the programs, and what we gathered from the internet.
    I guess now's as good a time as any to start re-learning.
