Help Needed: from a professional graphic designer to a graphic design student!

thedoctorgoinghome:

So, I need to do an informational interview with a professional graphic designer as an assignment (one that’s due in less than two weeks). Basically, I need that person to look over my portfolio, provide some feedback, and answer a few questions via email. I can’t imagine it would take more than an hour, and hardly even that.

If you know of anybody who could do this or you are someone who could do this, please let me know! I would be very, very grateful!

Edit: Please signal boost!

Graphic Design Is EASY! Right?

It always cracks me up when someone asks me to design something for them for free.

Anyone who designs will know what I mean. It is this underlying disrespect for the industry. Graphic designers are treated like a bunch of lazy peons.

I mean seriously. If I come up to you and ask you to plumb my kitchen. Or I ask you to change my fuel pump… are you going to expect to do it for free?

Prrrrobbbably not. But graphic or web design? c’mon how hard can it be? won’t take long, isn’t it just some fancy scribbles? Besides the program does most of the work right?

How about I ask you this: How hard can plumbing be? bunch of wrenches and some pipes, little two part glue, big deal. Do it for me and I’ll give you some “exposure”, I’ll tell my friends about you.

Wow…gee…thanks…

That’ll pay the bills and justify the time ignoring my kid. Thanks for that.

I like doing stuff for family and friends. It’s a great opportunity to give back. it’s just all the other requests.

Do me a favour and go make your own logo. I hear comic sans is making a comeback… and Staples does just a bang up print job - good luck!

YAY!

And my old harddrive from college and highschool is making the ‘I’m dead’ whirring-click sounds. I’ve lost all my highschool documents/art, most of my Pratt work and who knows what else.

I’ve lost my Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century reboot project, the intro I made, all the storyboards and the treatment. I have the turnarounds, but honestly they were the weakest part of the whole presentation.

Here’s the logo, at least I have an image of that… but no illustrator file because that’s gone too.

Oh my gosh… =( I can barely even imagine how painful that must be… Might a tech still be able to extract the files from your hard drive? Do you know? It’s definitely worth looking into if you don’t…
