is graphics done after inter second year

Asked by shiva over 8 years ago

To be honest I do not know. I went to Art School over 30 years ago and am now in my 50's. So I guess things may be very different now. I suggest contacting the college itself to ask this question.

Is the salary equivalent to the work performed by being a graphic designer?

Asked by Tamy about 8 years ago

That's a bit of an open question ...it depends on who you work for, in what country and your experience. If you are good and working for a good company then yes the salary is equivalent to the work you do. In some companies you are paid for what you are worth to the company and according to your experience. I am freelance so charge according to my experience. Hope this helps

How would you define branding? ??What is the role of the designer in branding? And why do you think branding is important?

Asked by lorena about 8 years ago

A brand is more than just a logo ...it is a powerful tool that is in the public eye all the time which needs to reassure the consumers that the product etc is the best in their field. A logo usually takes a couple of days to get right ...but a brand can take months with many meetings with the client and lost of research by the designer. Branding is very important for big companies as it is stuck with them for a long long time and will always be remembered ...for example Coca cola and Apple etc.

I created a vector in Illustrator CS6 from a photograph of a dandelion, made into a logo. I used live trace to create the vector file. But now the printer is saying The new vector file is jagged and multicolored. Can you help me smooth to 3 colors?

Asked by BPeace almost 8 years ago

Using live trace is a very rough option for turning photos into vectors ...the results will never be perfect and will always result in tidying up rough edges by removing points on the path and recurving the line to how you want it. You can play with the settings and choose the option of how many colours you want the end result to be ...but you still may have to tidy it up after.

I prefer not to use live trace and always place the photo into Illustrator and draw the image over the top and add in the colours after. Once finished I remove the photo.

Hope this helps.
