>NEVER USE YOUR NAME
This may sound stupid but it's actually a good tip.
If you search for my name in google the first result is a cringy as fuck picture from a geocities site about the metal band I had when I was 16 with corpse paint and shit.
I've had employers tell me how much they laughed while googling me

Can anyone give me advice for starting to do some freelance graphic design? I started teaching myself graphic design over 10 years ago at a young age for fun. Fast forward I worked at my community college for 3-4 years doing the graphic design for posters/handouts for various events and clubs. I've designed everything for a small record label I manage as well for the past 4 years as well, my logo, website, some of the CDs minus the cover art, ads, merch, ect. Long story short I have experience to do flyers/posters/merch and now that I don't have my job at the community college (because I'm transferring) I want to expand on graphic design on the side, design some things for local businesses, help musicians with logos/merch/art/ect even if they aren't releasing under my label and are from a totally separate genre. My experience is in Illustrator and Gimp (I can do photoshop, but I prefer gimp and illustrator instead honestly because gimp feels better for the image editing aspect, and illustrator just allows me to save things as svgs and pdfs not constraining me to one resolution) As far as how I learned everything, I don't have a degree in gd because I'm majoring in business management, I self taught myself everything pretty much, I've taken a few gd classes at my college, but breezed through them because I taught myself so much through my job and whatnot.

How do I get my feet wet in freelance stuff? My thought was ask a customer what they want, show them 2-4 different versions of what they asked for under the conditions that they can't use any of it until paid, and then charge them after they choose what they liked in auditioned to any final edits if they wanted any.

This is my most recent flyer for my label, it's a black/doom metal label so the idea was to be simple and to the point like most of the ads I see in my mags and at shows, nothing groovy like in the hiphop scene.

I'm a sucker for slackware. I don't know if it's that 90's hacker vibe or that I really like the name (thanks church of the subgenius).
Arch looks really neat on teminal

>elementary logo and general branding is stylish in kind of a numale hipster way

Debian by far. It's not the greatest logo I've seen, at all, but it's the most memorable of the Linux distros.

I need some system recommendation because Corel Draw lags too much on my laptop. Is it because I am doing my work on laptop?
Anyway I am planning on built my own system so I that I could perform my work without wasting any time. What kind of system would you suggest if one intends to use PS and Corel? Moreover it'd be great if I could save my money on expensive stuff.

Do as I say and not as I do

Hey guys, I have an e-comm site where I sell book quote posters (pic related), and a decent amount of people have requested t-shirts. I honestly don't think the poster designs would look great on t-shirts, but I have Amazon Merch, so it's easy enough to throw them up there.

Anyway I am looking for input on what I should do with my poster images wrt the white border that surrounds the poster. I am sure some of you guys have worked with t-shirts, so you'll probably know what looks best.

Here are options I'm thinking about.

1) Leave the white border as is
2) Leave some of the white border (make it smaller)
3) Eliminate white border
4) Any of the above with slightly rounded edges. I feel like rounded edges might be nice. Somehow the right angles don't feel right on a t-shirt.

What makes this all a little more complicated is that the color of the t-shirt influences which option looks best. A very dark design on a black shirt might look better with some white border for separation.

I'm gonna post 6 options. I have my favorite, but I don't want to influence you guys. if you could take a second to look and tell me what you think is best, I would appreciate it.
