    Job hunting: What's your process?

    I've never once gotten a response from "cold applying", and my experience in job hunting is very very recent, not decades old haha. No offense, Scotty and Hank I'm not sure places really appreciate that type of thing anymore. If anything it's more of an annoyance. I got my first job from word of...

    Logo design in Illustrator - vectors/jpeg etc. for using logo across platforms

    Then you have to export it as a Jpeg or PNG. Export it at the right size for that social media icon and it should be fine.

    Logo design in Illustrator - vectors/jpeg etc. for using logo across platforms

    InDesign shows a pixellated preview so it can run faster. You can select overprint preview to show what it looks like. I recommend linked files to be PDFs personally.

    Graphics tablet!

    See personally that's better for me. I like having an anchored, dedicated workspace, rather than something portable. I would honestly love to have 2 stations, a computer with games on it and a computer that's just for art and design. I feel like I would get a lot more done that way if I had a...

    Graphics tablet!

    That's incredible. Another thing I love about the Intuos: It's practically invincible lol. Everything breakable on it is replaceable, the pen, the pen nibs, and the cord. I've had mine since 2014, and I've never had a single problem with it. I use it pretty heavily too. Pen pressure works great...

    Graphics tablet!

    I love my Intuos Pro, I have the Large size. It's definitely a learning curve. But once you get the hang of it you'll love it.

    I feel like a majority of managers are not good though. Like, if 1/10 managers are really good, and you meet 40 male managers and 10 female managers, you're much more likely to meet more good male managers.

    Oh man! Boy do I have some scary interview stories haha. Here's one: I interviewed at a fairly new local print shop. They were looking to hire someone immediately and wanted someone who would stay with the company long-term. There were a lot of red flags but I was working at Walmart at the time...

    Constructive criticism on my work

    I do like the concept! I think you need to start back from square 1 with a piece of paper and a pencil. Make at least 50-100 different thumbnails with different ideas. I know 50 sounds like a lot but once you get going it flies by.

    So when I worked at Walmart there was definitely some drama between all the apparel ladies, but we still worked well together, kept our mouths shut and didn't start fights. The backroom on the other hand, an all man team, were constantly being pulled into the office for being mean to each other...

    Critique my illustration

    I do think you're treating the text as something to ADD rather than incorporate. The text should be PART of it not slapped on at the end. Did you include the text when you were thumb nailing the illustration?

    I mean it makes sense, you have to have some kind of support financially to be able to have a child. Would you have a child before you're financially ready to relieve some kind of burden on your employer? Literally the #1 reason people decide not to have children is because of the financial...

    Hmm, when I was in school it was about 50/50 or with a small margin of female majority. I went to a tech school first, and that was definitely female majority, and then a bunch of guys dropped out. My graduating class started with a class of 25 students and the people that graduated were 5 women...

    Need some advice

    I worked full time and went to school full time for 3 years to get an Associate's Degree, and even though I wanted to go for my BFA I stopped because I got a job in the field and decided to work my way up from experience. If you really, really want it, you'll make it happen. Nobody is going to...
