    Would you go for this job?

    Thanks guys. I agree with your points and agree that there are various ways to look at it. One of my issues was that if this was a brief given to a design agency, they would probably charge several thousand to do this. What if these were real jobs and they've given a different brief to each...

    Vectorizing a complex image

    I wouldn't think you'd trace this anyway. Each section is made by creating 2 vector curves and applying the blend tool. Again, as many people say throughout this forum - there are plenty of tutorials for this under something like 'line blend tutorial illustrator'.

    Would you go for this job?

    Hi All, I've been looking for a more reliable source of income, and thought I'd apply for a few jobs. This one however irked me so much that I sent a scathing reply to them. I've omitted any personal information. Bear in mind that the salary is £22k. What are your thoughts? Graeme

    What is a Graphic Designer?

    Following on from this. Here's another advert for a 'Creative Services Assistant' Personally, I think this is a bit much of an ask, especially when it's offering £23-25k.

    Anyone enjoy a client watching you work?

    So, nobody enjoys this type of working then?

    Anyone enjoy a client watching you work?

    I said that my laptop was having some issues, and he asked if I just needed access to a computer. I told him that I use specialist software, which I do. Still wants me to come in and try :(

    Anyone enjoy a client watching you work?

    I have one particular client that insists on me coming to see him with my laptop to 'go through some ideas' with him. Essentially he wants to sit and watch me creating artwork while he gives me his input. Who actually enjoys this?

    @hankscorpio Exactly my thoughts.

    What is a Graphic Designer?

    I found this general description of a Graphic Designer on a website and it made me wonder: This description pretty much describes my idea of a Graphic Designer. However, adverts for Graphic Design jobs these days require you to be an Illustrator, photographer, web developer, animator, video...

    Pantone Swatch Page

    Thanks hankscorpio, I know there are a lot, but it could be on one large page, or several. Doesn't really matter about coated or uncoated as it's just to have a reference to a physical print. I could manually copy these onto pages, but just wondered if anyone had already done the donkey work? (y)

    Pantone Swatch Page

    Does anyone know where I can get an Illustrator file with the Pantone swatches on the page? I need to print them on our wide format printer for a colour check. Thanks :)

    Cameo logos?

    Well I'm glad it's not just me.

    Cameo logos?

    Unfortunately, the reason I'm there is that their design folk have left. It doesn't really make any difference to me. The logos are just reversed white versions of various logos. It's just the naming convention I'm not sure about. Maybe it means the designers made an appearance, named the files...
