My Brother made this ad. He got the draped velvet image from a free stock site, then put the glass award in later. His original pic of the award was rough - but with some help it came it well (I think). My bro is a CorelDRAW machine in his own right - doesn't know all the tricks like I do, but he's persistent and cranks out tons of print content every week under deadlines. 12 tabloid pages every 3 days, with lots of ads therein.

Hey...
It's been a long time since we haven't seen
some posts from you Jeff...

So you send some of your brother's...
Ha!

Pretty nice picture!
Like Fluid...I like the colors too!

One thing though...

It looks like a publicity that you'd find in a 70s magazine.
AvantGarde font with a "standard old layout".

Hi Stetro,

Thanks for the comments. I haven't posted much for a while - too busy making a living with Draw and preparing training materials. Not as much time to "play" like I once had.

By posting stuff like this pic, I hope that some beginning/intermediate Draw user can see some potential for how use Draw to build a career. Print design is one piece of a bigger pie - but I think it might inspire someone who designs church flyers and invoices to go to a new level.

There seems to be an assumption that Draw can't or shouldn't be used for things like the above... but the proof is above for all to see.

I admire your work greatly - but you should realize that your art is at the very top of the pile. It doesn't get any better. People SHOULD shoot for the moon and have high standards. However there is a lot of middle ground - 80% of the Draw users won't have the patience or your eye & talent to get to your level.

What are they supposed to do? Give up? Nah - they should try their best and grow at a pace they can handle. Otherwise they'll get discouraged and go back to Publisher. :-)

Hi Jeff,

I remember in art school...Where I studied art in all of its forms...
The History of it (wich I consider VERY important today),
the different techniques, philosophy, intentions of modern art,
the variety of perspectives in art. I studied a lot.

In art school...Oh Boy, Did I ever get it!!! Teachers where rough!!!
Constructive but oh...ROUGH...They really intended to discourage us.
That was their goal.

They told us things like...

"We're rough with you guys? Man...we're not clients...
We're not paying 2000$ for logo...and you think we're rough?"

Their goal was to make sure that we were able to take it
on the real market!!! If we couldn't take it at school...
We'd be better not to take it at all.

Jeff, I lost so many chances at having great graphic design jobs to people who don't even know hell about art. All they knew was how to work in
Illustrator. And I mean...WORK not draw!
I tried so many times to prove my worth! But when someone came up
offering himself for 8 or 9 buck an hour instead of me, at 15 to 16 bucks an
hour, the companies didn't calculate much! Hey!

So this all sums up to one thing.

If you think you like drawing...
Please don't ever stop!!! Learn and learn and learn! Read about it!
See TV shows about, go to school!!! DON'T STOP!!!
Take your time with it...
And please...Don't let the computer think for you.
The computer is...the pencil! You're the artist!!!

DON'T GIVE UP!!!

And like I posted elsewhere...Please don't take my critics to rough
They're constructive! They're directions I point out.
If we always give compliments, people not experimented won't even
know it, and they'll go in wrong directions...(not to say that art
has a pattern and must be respected, though)


Take care Jeff (and your brother too)


Don't forget to write me for the newsgroup thing!!!

Hi Stretro,

Sounds like the school you went to was hard, but good.

It gave you the skills to go anywhere in the world and be a digital craftsman. Some schools today - the focus is on getting the tuiton. If the student learns, great. If not... "oh well... we got the kid's money". I went a school like that for audio engineering. I made the most of the situation and ended up working in the field, for 7.00 per hour.

Years later, I worked through a temp agency at another place - same thing. Tuiton was 10,000.00 to become an MCSE. They would stress how stringent the school's admission requirements were. After that song and dance, they would ask about how the student could pay the $. If the student was able, wow! They were magically accepted! And the student feels privileged to be a part of this prestigious school after the Big Speech 15 minutes earlier.

True, many print shops don't pay very well. I started out that way, but am doing better now. They know my work is good after this period of time, but I think they also like my reliability and consistency as a person. They will pay a bit more for that.

If someone wants to become rich as a graphic artist, they'll need to have their own company (for the tax benefits) and also make profit on the print run or manufacturing end as well. Otherwise a person only survives.

For ex, I bill out my design rate, but also make money on the cost of the print run for my clients (I freelance at several shops and also have my own clients).

I enjoy seeing your work, and wish you the best.

Hi again Jeff...

Yup...The school I went to was really hard.
At the time, I thought the those teachers didn't know heck about anything!
I was only frustrated at them for being so harsh on everybody.
Girls ran out of the classrooms crying!!!

But today, I think it was a good school. WE CAN TAKE ON A
CLIENT...ANYTIME!!

At the time, If you didn't have any talent, any artitstic personnality,
any knowledge of any kind of art...YOU WEREN'T A GRAPHIC DESIGNER!!!
Nobody improvised at the time!

Today, because of computers, many people CAN do a similar job...

Instead of being on welfare, they'd rather work indoors, on a
computer, "having fun" drawing for 7 or 8 bucks an hour...
The "REAL" artists then are left without a job or with one that
doesn't pay them their worth!

Most of the people don't know how to draw. So these clients then pay
professionnals that are supposed to know how to draw.
But if these pros don't know how to draw, how does a client know the
difference? THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO DRAW EITHER!!
They don't give a hoot, the job they pay for...is less expensive!!!

So in a way, I like for people to get all the infos they need to become
a real graphic designer, to go to school.
It's a much more "fair trial" when you debate your worth for a job.
And a client is much better driven towards better ideas and designs.

Sometimes the critics I give might seem harsh...but they really intend
to be constructive...So you could become better and able to take it too!

Imagine somebody comin' up with a thousand bucks for some design.
Don't imagine that he'll say nothing if it's not what he expects!
Might not necessarly come out nice!

I enjoy seeing everybody's work here...Everyday, I wander on this site!!!
Thanks again for making me part of this!!

Take care, buddy!

Runners always need new gear, and each time we go into a coach store store, there are new versions of our old favorites. How do apparel companies come up with new products and styles each season? For insights I spoke with Patty Kelly, product manager at the ASICS apparel division. Not only has she been in the business for 20 years, but she has also raced all over the world as a member of the Canadian national triathlon team. Patty is currently working on apparel for fall 2011. Eventually she will give a designer "product detail," which explains all the specific attributes of a given product she aims to sell. For example, she may request a seven-inch pair of shorts with two pockets and lightweight fabric. The gucci messenger bags designer will create coach outlet two or three models, and she'll pick the one she anticipates the customer will like gucci sale best. But before that can happen, she must gucci outlet do research, which includes figuring out how to differentiate this season from last and how to stay ahead of emerging trends.
