ITT: things teachers have told you that you think are wrong/stupid

>"every single file in the industry gets packaged in indesign, even if it wasn't made in indesign"
>"sketches need to be identical to how your final piece turns out"
>any teacher that has made us class critique sketches multiple times then not even critique the final project or look at it
>anytime a teacher has said It should be 35% done by next class, or some other ridiculous made up on the spot percentage that isn't an accurate way of measuring progress completed

>Dreamweaver is an important tool to learn

>"sketches need to be identical to how your final piece turns out"
Your teachers sound like hacks with loud opinions. A sketch is meant to save yourself time, nothing more. Wether you actually sketch or not is optionial.

More /ic then /gd/, but:
>Art school. One teacher frequently cites Betty Edwards's "Drawing with the right side of the brain" as if it's the end-all-be-all of drawing.

Good teacher experience:
>Media art school. Teacher shits on everything we make, especially any typography reminiscent of dafont. Says typography is most important.
That very same year he stopped working there, he was pretty old though. In hindsight i would probably have loved him now.

my gd teacher tried making us create a video using powerpoint instead of after effects (Ae was on the computers) the only reason was because he didnt know how to use Ae

Was thinking about using this a couple of weeks ago, but grew a brain and realised that it is just so fucking plebtier.

I love this. Something's off about it though. Might be that the logo is to thick. Not sure. Love where you're going with it though.

>>264075
Have you tried making it look more like an M? I get that you're going for the implied shape, but maybe just a bit less implication would make it more unique.

Here's mine that I've been playing with. I only just decided to start doing some freelance work. Looking for a harsh critique

Hi /gd/, /diy/ here.
Used to use illustrator in middle school, tryna get back to it.
This is a mockup, what do you guys think about services on the border of the card? too much? weird? Do you think buisness cards need to be done the traditional way?(name, title, adress, etc on the front side)

The only things im sure about is the bar across my name and the color scheme of black/red/yellow.

What is that border around the font?
Why did you put that there?

Why do you have that line above your name?
Are you sure this will be readable in print?
>>
1. It's spelled "Consultation".
2.The design looks cheap and amateurish.
3. Try putting all the services you provide in the back and your contact info below it.
4. I personally don't like the color scheme you chose. The quality will depend what type of paper you print them on.
5. That line above the name doesn't really work. I first read it as "Ona Iuh Fitzgerald" then looking it at again I saw Tonatiuh.

Just make some more mock ups, at least a dozen more.

I like Bernie's blue the best, but the star on the "i" is kinda small and not properly aligned. Trump's typeface has a nice, solid, vintage feel to it. Other than that they're all pretty average.

All time best over here though.

how do I remove the effects of this photograph having been taken of a computer monitor?

based on a quick look at your image, i'd say it's too low res and should be manually retrace with coreldraw (essentially recreate it from scratch)

My tutor's logo is literally a black circle.
That's all, just a circle.
What's worse is that he paid someone to do it for him, and he's supposed to be a graphic designer himself.

Hello anons, I need your help for critiques for this logo. As a final school project me and a friend have to make a blog summing up all the blogs made by the class this year.

The name of the blog is Taste & Colors
The baseline (not written here) is "Diversity ignites creativity"

So we wanted to go abstract and make the T&C quite original. I'm hoping critiques for this, and if you have improvements to make, go ahead.

Thanks

4/10. how hard is to make a circle? some of the shapes need a lot of work the T and C are unclear and you shouldn't use spiked endings that much.

The spacing makes no sense.

The shapes and line widths aren't symmetrical and makes the logo itself extremely hard to read.

I couldn't tell that the logo itself is supposed to be a T and C.

Think of something that relates to the blog's contents and draw symbolism from that.

Also check the fucking catalog for the crit thread first before wasting a thread for your own bullshit.
