Life as a graphic designer is a constant battle against mediocrity and ugliness. It’s also a constant struggle against ignorance and people’s inability to visualize/imagine things that they’ve never seen before. Not to mention the business side of things, money talks while excellence takes a backseat—the proverbial designing at gunpoint situation. This was the exact situation that I had to beat in order to create this particular print ad for Mitsubishi Montero Sport.
Clients are creatures of habit. The funny thing with creatures of habit is that if you present them with something different (as is always the case when you do creative work) they’re apprehensive to accept it or they downright reject it. As is the case with one of the best calendars I designed for Rhum Barbancourt.
Bombard's Body Language YouTube channel was terminated. For what reason? Wrong think. I'm highly concerned, when will the witch hunt stop? When will the inquisition stop? Who's next? Maybe it's you!
Don't agree, should she be banned? You be the judge of her content: here's her website.
It’s pink, purple, and lavender. Belrad laundry detergent packaging design and logo design was one of those nice graphic design projects that I worked on, not because I like detergents, but mostly because the client was agreeable and willing to compromise. In other words, the client listened to my design advice and gave me creative freedom. Of course, within limits of his requirements. When client and graphic designers compromise, designs come out nice and everybody is happy.
P’tite Saveur logo and packaging design is one of those weird jobs that I got in my career as a graphic designer at a design firm. The client was adamant about using Gothic-looking fonts [that has the middle ages look] and he was dead serious about using a velum for the logo and packaging texture; while looking modern!
I took the challenge… mostly because I was the only graphic designer in the office brave enough, or crazy enough to take on such a design challenge or insanity!
Alt-social media platforms are on the rise as Facebook, Twitter and more recently YouTube started censoring and demonetizing content. These social media platforms have become "anti-free speech" or at least unfriendly to speech coming from the right side of the political spectrum.
So to creators who are on alt-social media platforms like vid.me and gab.ai, here are some icons that you can use for your website. Just drag drop the images to your desktop. Enjoy!
VIDME SOCIAL ICONS
Icons for vidme. Square icons with sharp and rounded corners–max dimensions 300x300 px, png format. Vidme subscribe button–max dimensions 900x260px, png format.
Here's a graphic design fun exercise. That awkward moment when you realize that men with mustache get in big BIG trouble.
Adolf Hitler the man who sparked WW2 and the leader of the Nazis. Joseph Stalin, communist dictator, enemy of the US. Saddam Hussein, killed because of non-existing WMDs. Pablo Escobar, Columbian drug lord and terrorist. El Chapo, Mexico's top drug kingpin, head of Sinaloa Cartel, US DEA enemy no1. Gaddafi, late dictator of the destabilized Libya. Assad, president of Syria engaged in a multi-year proxy war between different world powers. All of them have 2 things in common, they have big problems in their hands and they have a mustache. Lol.
