    I agree. I remember one of the first places I worked - and you'd give a logo presentation to the client, i the client didn't like it the boss would tear strips off you in front of the client. There were days people left through the fire escape never to return. It's a harsh unforgiving job, at...

    I think he just meant that the logos are stuck on stock templates - which they are - aren't they? As someone who hires - I always appreciate when it's clear to me what was a stock template was used. You've got great feedback here - for a weekend! I suggest you take away the bits that are...

    It is highly suspicious with the exact same shape and thickness. If it's random that is weird.

    And I'm being over-critical - looking at it as if it came across my email and considering people. I have to be over-critical - that's the way it works. In no way is any of the criticism about any of the work designed to be hurtful. But it's real critique. Years ago - I got a wonderful...

    ACBC looks confusing - it looks like NC3C. Some of the mockups are awful - don't look real at all. Hyphenations in the text look terrible - didn't read it all but caught my eye. Roma - again hyphenations in text look awful Why did you do a bad copy of a famous statute? Adds doubt to your...

    Behance is massive. I won't pretend to understand it, like YouTube "stars" or Twitch, I don't get it, much like Tik Tok and Snapchat... I am so far removed from those worlds. I clicked on Adobe tutorial written by two people.and one was linked to this kids Instagram page. I don't get it. But...
