Can you still make a living with being a webdesign freelancer? Or is this argument true?

>yeah I'm sure you can compete with the millions of 3rd worlders willing to do the same work for less
21 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
3rd world workers deliver less value. /biz/-main that randomly stumbled upon this board but I've hired/paid all kinds of programmers, web designers, and gfx artists. Almost all 3rd world workers I've hired to do front end web design mockups or logos have delivered complete shit. You have to tell them exactly what you want, with examples to take inspiration from, but they still send back an ugly page filled with mismatching gradients and misaligned text. Not to mention the passive aggressive broken english when you tell them what revisions need to be made. The only thing they excel at over first world workers is getting you a ton of pages in a short amount of time.

So, if you want to make a living being located in a place with respectable living conditions, you're just going to have to be able to deliver consistent quality, and not be a pain in the ass to work with. A portfolio is key when finding work. You WILL have to work for free or start projects yourself before looking for freelance work. Nobody will hire someone without a portfolio that shows the value of their work.
yes, but not easy.
you have to build up a network and a good portfolio. you can build a good portfolio while in school or you do projects for absurt low cost.
its not easy but it is very doable
3rd worlders are cheaper but you have the advantages of:

english as a first language
accessible (many clients don't know HOW to outsource or hire ppl from india)
racism workingin ur favor
easier to pick up luxury work
easier for your client to relate to you and your aesthetic/your ability to understand their aesthetic

There are lots of reasons someone would hire a first world freelancer at premium rates, most of them come down to comfort and communication

Seeing the word "Pig" that thin after the word gluttonous is throwing me off.
I agree that the "pig" word needs to be beefed up a tad, but my main critique is that the pig is very stiff and awkward looking.

I recommend scrapping this swine, and starting fresh on his look. Use more circles when you pencil the mascot, don't connect the lower lid into a full circle, and give him a neck!

since the squares are all evenly grid spaced, and have enough space inbetween them to fit a new set of squares, you can overlay a second copy of the same image, shift it by 1 square row & 1 square column, and set the blend mode to darken (so the darker color value of the two pictures apply over the white square)

the result is kinda shitty though, not perfect.

alternatively... open in python, use opencv or sumth ez, make some quick code that identifies squares, and sets their color value to be the...

I have severe Anxiety Disorder (and depression) as well as ADD.

When I'm designing something at home, I'm very relaxed. However, when I had I job (I never got fired, I just fulfilled my timed contract) I could never get over the anxious thought of fucking up, especially when my boss was watching. Focusing is such a daunting task, overthinking becomes a common obstacle I face, and my attention to detail becomes shot.

CBT can be helpful for this kind of thing. There's a book called "Feeling Good" by David Burns that I've found helpful, if you can get over the self-helpy-ness of it
Id recommend Anxiety As An Ally by Dan Ryckert. Not a designer, but a public facing creative professional (or history's greatest monster, depending on how you look at it) nonetheless.
op, i had horrible panic attacks where i felt like i would die from a heart attack, and general axiety.

look into inositol powder (also known as vitamin b8). it's the only thing that's help me. it's a supplement readily available in health stores and online. buy the pure bulk powder, because for anxiety and panic you have to take around 12-16 grams of it, which is quite a lot and it's way too expensive to buy the capsules. the powder dissolves in water and is tasteless. it's very safe.

Got super good at design. Clients love that

To piggyback off

>You partner with a couple guys who have totally different but complementary skillsets to your own,

I'd recommend having a business major. The people who grease palms and are comfortable approaching strangers with your company's elevator pitches, and can competently step up to the mound to compensate for any social shortcoming you or your team might have, especially when networking with clients who might be leary about hiring a fresh company with not many notches on their six-gun, or don't understand the value you'd be bringing their company.

It might also behove you to have some people who excels at administrative work, to ensure that there's a paper trail, and are tasked to make sure clients pay the fees, and make sure the lights are on. Sure, you could do this yourself, but it'd free you up to concentrate on what you'd rather be doing (i.e. designing neat shit). (possibly the aforementioned business major)

Partner with a good printshop. Even if you're doing exclusively digital things, having good leave-behinds and printed collateral can help your branding- because sometimes a client might not be able to get online at a crucial moment, or is old-fashioned enough to not be impressed by your fancy big-city ivory-towered highfalutin "website."
Sure, you could get these done through an online company, but having a local source can speed up the production time, and you can take advantage of their experience in producing such things.
If you invest in something like teeshirts or retractable banners, this can also help solidify an identity for you and your team. But this can be expensive and potentially wasteful early on, so don't count your chickens too early on!

Finally, take advantage of your social networks. Dad might not need your work, but his employer might, or mom might know such and such who is in need of this and that. (replace family member with friends or friends of friends- you build these connections for a reason!)

Go entirely fuck yourself, like take your entire body and put it up inside of your body and fuck yourself with it.

No shit a logo should be simple. And whatever imagery you think would represent your company, any solid designer will absolutely know better.

Don't waste your money or any of these fuckers time. You don't want a designer, you want somebody who knows Illustrator and will do whatever you want. Take the twenty bucks you were so generously "willing" to pay...

Needs more padding. Consider adding a little weight to the headers (not too much though).

What is /gd/'s opinion about using Facebook to showcase art?

I have recently decided to get rid of Facebook for personal use, but have still considered using it to promote my art and handmade items as well as keep an open line of communication from past clients.

I'm already wary of returning to it, because I know Facebook has ridiculous terms and conditions. I'm worried if there are any repercussions to posting art on Facebook.

>Picture unrelated, but a photo of my own.
5 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Don't do it, OP. You relinquish your rights to anything you directly upload to Facebook, and on top of that their compression is horrible and makes your photos look like shit.

Unless you run a small business or something that absolutely relies on having that constant two-way communication, just use Dribble/Behance/your own site.
OP Here:
Can you explain what you mean when you say "relinquishing rights" ? Does that mean someone via FB could use my art and turn a profit?

This guy is right in the hyperbolic sense but wrong in the practical sense.

You upload an image to facebook - it becomes their property. Thankfully that does not equate to them owning the intellectual property you generated - even if you upload a copy of that said image to facebook.

Simply put:

Make a vector - it's yours
Upload picture of vector to facebook - it's theirs
Sell the original vector - it's all yours

Hourly is better if you are younger. Overtime son!

Is there a way to translate hourly to a work from home kinda thing?

2010 logo. In around 2013, however, they added some kind of silver border around the text that threw the whole thing off.
i like the logo, but it does not fit a soda. it's too collegiate sports team. the colors may have something to do with that though.

it's a very strong/bold logo, but sterile and refined. it just does not fit for something that should emphasize fun, enjoyment, good times...

whats the problem now?
the second pic is the poster i suppose.
for me the information is placed well its just nothing else. the only element beside the information is the circle which is pretty random.
maybe try to use symbols from the actual matthäus passion.
the most obvious thing to do is take the cross or the thorncrown and place the information around it/in it.
Nah, the circle was chosen over the cross, so I have to go with that. And I still need to include that blocky logo. I think I'm going with this and be done with it.
