What kind of graphics do you design?

Posted 01 April 2011 - 10:56 AM

Hello everybody,

I am in the process of planning a series of tutorials for Graphic Design, and I have a few questions for you all.

  • Which kinds of graphics do you design? (eg. websites, posters, logos, digital paintings, traditional paintings etc.)
  • Do you do these in vector, raster or traditional media?
  • How much background of theory do you have?
  • How experienced are you?
  • Do you design for commerical usage or just personal?
  • What tutorials would you like to see?


If you have anything else to add then do so. If you want to answer some questions but not all, then only answer some.

Thanks,

Shane

Ultimately, I think only the last question is really relevant. But more importantly, what is "your" background in theory, and how can "your" tutorials help others? Are you suited to teach really advanced topics, such as Photoshop scripting? Or, do you just do graphic design?

Basically, I'd just do searches for graphic tutorials, see where they fall short and what categories don't get covered based on your level of expertise, then hit those niches.

* Which kinds of graphics do you design? (eg. websites, posters, logos, digital paintings, traditional paintings etc.)
Mostly websites. I design logos for those websites as well. I do some digital painting on the side. I used to make things like signatures and avatars too, but have moved on to more professional works.
* Do you do these in vector, raster or traditional media?
I like vectoring for the modern look it provides. But I'd like to expand, you know?
* How much background of theory do you have?
Not much. Doesn't mean I don't know what looks hot and what does not.~
* How experienced are you?
5 years as a hobby. A year and a half getting paid to make websites.
* Do you design for commerical usage or just personal?
Both.
* What tutorials would you like to see?
Anything unique that I could apply to my work that I haven't thought of before.

Which kinds of graphics do you design? (eg. websites, posters, logos, digital paintings, traditional paintings etc.)

Web, digital painting, traditional ballpoint pen

Do you do these in vector, raster or traditional media?

Raster and Traditional

How much background of theory do you have?

Self taught theory from online sources and various books.

How experienced are you?

3 years professional, 8 years practice in web. Lifetime effectively in traditional, but 2 years professional.

Do you design for commerical usage or just personal?

Primarily personal but I do take commissions. Personal work is, however, something I get paid for as well.

What tutorials would you like to see?

Something beyond here are the basics and some simple effects to use. Something that teaches skill instead of some cheap smoke and mirror effects. Really more than anything substance.

You make very good points here. I have basic knowledge of it but what I was planning on doing is collecting together all the tutorials that would be useful (and these questions will help in deciding which are more important) then I can ask other people to help me if they have time and experience that I do not have.
