    What is common practice in publication design?

    Thank you! I should’ve mentioned this before but I feel like this is a somewhat unique case. The person I’m referencing is actually the parent of a late actor and they want to make this potential biography a visual book of memories/stories/etc. They don’t seem to have any connections or...

    What is common practice in publication design?

    Hey guys, I’m a graphic design student and haven’t done much publication design outside of my uni projects so forgive me if this is a stupid question. How does the design process usually work? Can independent freelance designers design the publication for the client and the finished product is...

    Advice on finding work experience in film?

    Thanks so much for your post. It’s unfortunate they let your niece go but amazing her team won a BAFTA - that’s the dream! Also, yeah, I’d imagine COVID’s messed everything up for a while. Always worth a try anyway. I’m polishing up my portfolio as we speak - would it be alright if I messaged...

    Advice on finding work experience in film?

    Hi guys, I’m currently completing my BA in Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins and very keen on pursuing a career in film/TV as a graphic designer. This might be the wrong place to ask as I’m not sure anyone here is working in film, however do you have any tips on finding...

    Film Poster Feedback

    Sorry about the link. Thanks for the feedback! I agree with you, I’m just having some difficulty making it fit. It’s good you were reminded of Bonnie and Clyde because I’m pretty sure the plot is loosely based on them, similar bank robberies/fugitives during the Great Depression, and there is a...

    Film Poster Feedback

    Hey guys, I need you to be brutally honest... can you see this as a indie film poster? POSTER If not, what is it missing? What can I change? Sorry about the quality/colour, it's gone a bit yellow... I just had to upload a small file. It's still kind of a work in progress, some details need...

    Is it okay to include film concept design in your portfolio?

    Thanks for the link! Yes, I’ll just be sharing the portfolio with the director so he can view the work in his own time. Haha thanks for the reply. It’s uncertain whether they’ll actually go for my poster, so I’m trying to win them over! Pay is another thing I have to think about, actually. If...

    Is it okay to include film concept design in your portfolio?

    The actual story is that I initially posted the design on social media as “fan art” and the director of the film contacted me expressing interest in using it as the poster. So now I’m trying to put together a portfolio page showing the process and iterations to kind of pitch the design in a more...

    Is it okay to include film concept design in your portfolio?

    I've been working on a poster and DVD concept for an existing film that's currently in post-production. Would it be okay to include this work in my portfolio even if I wasn't a part of the actual film (and of course credit the production team/companies)? I'd assume it's okay since it's my own...

    Film Poster Design Feedback

    Thanks for the feedback. I’m glad it reminded you of Gravity because that was my inspiration! Before that, I’d taken some elements from the Life posters (astronauts’ faces) but I just thought it was too much and needed simplifying. Yeah, makes sense about the format but it’s a shame how...

    Film Poster Design Feedback

    Hey guys, I’m trying my hand at designing movie posters. I need some feedback to know how to improve! I started my design with the first version. I liked the concept of having a vast space scene but felt that the outcome was quite static and dull, not really engaging the viewer as much as I’d...

    How much should I charge for merchandise design?

    I was recently contacted by a popular YouTuber wanting to know more about how I work and how I charge for my work before we can talk about designing... and I just realized that I have no idea what to tell them as it's my first time doing freelance (instead of designing/selling my own products)...

    I've lost so much confidence...

    Exactly. I'm doing Visual Arts in the IB and the process journal requirements are just ridiculous. Plus, 40% of our final grade are based on them... what's the damn point. It's so unrealistic. As a student doing projects in their free time, I never have a process written down/drawn... I just do...
