    Irrelevent info on a CV

    Hello! I'm in the process of updating my CV; specifically to apply for jobs in the Graphic Design field. I've mentioned before I've never had employment as a designer, so obviously I don't have the advantage of being able to write about all the previous experience I have, or any rave...

    Masters Degree?

    I don't want to do it just for the credibility, that would just be an added bonus. I want to be able to expand my knowledge and learn as much as I can! I like the idea of asking a professional to review my portfolio, good idea. As for the course I was looking at, it is distance learning, but...

    Masters Degree?

    I think I have a case of imposter syndrome! I have a HND Level 5 in Graphic Design, but the course I did was such a wash out; unorganised classes, unapproachable course leader, no Graphic Design teacher for almost 5 months, doing assignments the art class was doing that wasn't at all relevant to...

    Masters Degree?

    Well, I am struggling to find work to be honest, I left my last job because of Covid; it was constantly closing and I was getting no money so I left- I hated it anyway so I didn't care too much. I'm trying to focus on starting a design career, but with most offices closed, there aren't many job...

    Masters Degree?

    I suppose it's something to add onto my CV, but do Graphic Design employers even care that much about formal qualifications when applying for a job? If you can provide a good, solid portfolio, would a degree even matter? It's not something I'm going to go into lightly, I already have student...

    Masters Degree?

    Hello! I'm considering doing a Masters Degree in Graphic Design. I just wondered if anyone had done this that could give me a bit of insight please? I'm basically wanting to know what to expect from an MA course, so any information you can give me would be great. Is it mostly written work...

    Shutter Stock Opinions?

    The stock images I've used before have explicitly said they're free for commercial use.

    Shutter Stock Opinions?

    Hello! Not posted in here for a while, hope everyone is keeping safe and well. I just wanted your opinions/advice on Shutter Stock. Has anyone subscribed to it? Is it worth it? I have a couple other questions; Once I've bought an image, is it then removed from the site? Am I the only person...

    D&Ad Logo

    Well there's our opinion on it, and then there's the wrong opinion :LOL: I'd be surprised if no one's ever mentioned it to them!

    D&Ad Logo

    Not just you, I definitely share your opinion, and I'm sure there's others out there! It reminds me of the tacky WordArt I used to use in primary school. Vom.

    D&Ad Logo

    I just don't understand how they can judge other people's work when that logo is the face of their organisation! I think about it way more than I should. It really does bother me haha.

    D&Ad Logo

    What's everyone's opinion on this logo? I think I've mentioned before that I think it's horrendous, surely I'm not the only one? I get the hexagonal shape because it's supposed to resemble the bottom of a pencil (the trophy you win is a giant pencil) but the text... what were they thinking...

    SEO Marketing

    Thank you! I'm basically doing a little branding project for an SEO company. It's not real, it's just a project I decided to do to bump up the weight of my portfolio. I've got the logo, business cards, letter heads and envelopes. Just thought a prospectus thing might be a nice addition. As...

    SEO Marketing

    Evening! Bit of an odd question; Might an SEO company have it's s own brochure/magazine with plenty of information about their company and services for prospective new clients? A bit like a prospectus, I suppose would be the best way to describe it. Maybe something you might give a possible...
