If you dress too boring, will they think your work will be boring and conservative?

I have just finished writing my first novel. I post my cover in /lit/, asking for opinion. Some said this cover is not good enough. I agree because it was designed by me. Some suggested that I should come here for help. So I come here.
I really don't have the money to hire a professional designer. I don't want to show off, but I used to make $350 a month (standard salary in my country), and I am jobless now. So, could someone give me some simple tips to improve this cover? I am not asking for free work, we all have things to worry about, right?
Thank you.

Honestly, if it's your book and you don't have money to pay anyone, then it's a good enough cover.

With that said, the font screams amateur design, otherwise it could be a-ok.
What font do you think I should use for the title and/or the pen name?


But should tell us more about your novel if you want help.

10 of your best pieces (a student should easily have this many)
a page with contact info, your resume and portfolio in pdf format.

a section for that work (only display the projects you're proud of and willing to discuss if they're ever brought up)
a section for past work (you can include some school projects if they're really good, but be very selective about them)

>only display the projects you're proud of
The stuff i have from school isn't very good, most of what i have was rushed.

When i asked "What do you have in your portfolio?" i meant what kind off projects, like flyers, posters, websites, etc.
I'm just out of ideas on what to create.
Re-do those school projects then.

You have to start somewhere... you can't expect to have an amazing portfolio right from the start.

I once read a scientific text how about colors impact our perception and stimulate how we act.
It showed the orange and red colors chosen by McDonald's would make you feel the need to eat.
I'm planning to reform my bedroom next year, and I'm already planning how should I decorate it.
I always thought of having an all dark bedroom, with black painted alls so I could be comfy while watching movies and stuff. But on the other hand, I'm always studying, so I think a brighter color would help me to get woken up.

I turned the spare bedroom into my office/game room. The walls are a dark blue. I think the paint color was called 'Blue Suede Shoes'. Similar to the attached image.
Walking into the room, you immediately feel cool, calm, and relaxed. I have no issues getting work done in there.
Yes. Something like that.

I don't have enough space, I'll keep a office and bedroom in the same place. I was going to use something like you, a mix between purple and dark blue. I live in a very sunny place.

I'll see if I can make the eyes look any better. Just came up with this.
Get rid of the black outline around the irises. I don't like the addition of the text; it looks better with a cleaner design. Also, maybe clean up around his mouth. He looks a bit like he just ate a lemon.

Otherwise, good job. Would frame.

I've been developing an add-on for Firefox that involves a browser and notification system for Twitch.tv. Recently I received a review by one user whose only complaint was that he didn't like the icon. The original icon was quickly thrown together by me and was meant to emphasize the alarm feature, which used to be the central focus point of the add-on but is now somewhat of a secondary feature. Brand image has never really concerned me but I feel that I could gather more users and appeal to a wider audience by improving my image.

The main focus of the icon...

oh, are you the guy that made Twitch Alarm?
You have my thanks.
The thick black border on the bell in the first logo is really the only major flaw, if you changed it to a dark yellow or something it would be a marginally better logo.

What does the rightmost logo look like when it's an icon on the Firefox top bar? Because that's how people will see it 99% of the time.

change the round thing to the firefox logo and you'll have all the elements you need

joking aside, maybe replace the quotation marks in the chat bubble with a bell that matches the style, aka flat and no outline

I need some new drawing software for pixel art/animation (specifically for 32-bit video game art)

I've been using MS Paint for too long now and I deserve an upgrade god dammit.

Tried out a few things already: gimp, ProMotion, Ultimate Paint, but none of it fits exactly what I need.

I want a program that I can make pixel art in. With features like layers, a selection tool (and the ability to manipulate the selection. Resize it, stretch it, rotate it, etc.) as well as animation 'tools' like adjusting the speed of the animation, a looping preview

Incredible. I'm framing that.

if any professionals could answer me a couple of questions I'd greatly appreciate it.

1. do graphic designers still need to present printed portfolios or is just a portfolio website enough?

2. is it a steady work flow if you work for an agency? are you still allowed to freelance?

3. after graduating whats the best route to take? I live in new york so I assumed my best option would be to apply to places in the city. is a good portfolio with an associates in commercial arts and a certificate in website design enough? should I go to more school?

1. It would be a plus to show you have design skills in general. Just digital may suffice for digital jobs.

2. Steady work but it has its busy and chill times. You should be allowed to freelance.

3. Depends what you want to do and how good you are.

That's a solid answer, I think, although of course there are always exceptions.

I really just want a digital design job at an agency that pays decently. I'm not sure what title that should be but my ideal salary for it would be like 40-60k. I'm not trying to be senior art director or anything like that.

I appreciate the insight. I know my questions are all pretty vague and depend on the situation.

also do you think an internship would pay off? Id rather skip that if possible but id do one if it was beneficial enough.
1. Honestly, I think it's personal preference at this point. Having a printed portfolio sure as hell doesn't hurt though, and if there's ever a time to go the extra mile, it's when you're applying to jobs. Obviously doesn't make sense if your work is mostly digital though.

2. What >>240705 said. Work ebbs and flows in most kinds of office jobs though, I think. It's very standard practice to allow employees to freelance as long as they're not working on shit that could be seen as competition...

Figured since this is paid work, I'd ask here. Looking for someone to redesign my video game studio's logo. Didn't want to do any of the freelance websites cause no one speaks english there or understands what I want. They just keep giving me stock answers.

I made the logo here. I was following mostly Nintendo's logo design with the red colors and simple design, but I don't mind what colors or design you use for this.

but the truth is, language barrier aside, I've seen some damn talented people on these freelance websites, especially logo designers.
