Decky's Forgotten Graphics 2016-05-11 14:59:56


Hey art portal, it's been a while.

I thought it would be a nice idea to submit my forgotten, unused or rejected graphics here from my job (and future jobs).

This came about from one of my bosses wanting "cheaper" looking graphics leaving me having to redesign graphics that were better to begin with. But the client gets what the client wants (works for graphic design and prostitution). Who knows maybe I, or somebody else, will look back through this thread and get some ideas.

So, without further explaination let us begin...
________________________________________________________________

First graphic, this one was a thumbnail for a web ad (bigger vertion posted here) for an efficient central heating system. I'm currently work as an inhouse graphic designer for a heating company so the first of these will probably have that distinct theme.

If these are client created while you were under contract are you sure you have the rights to publish this work to make it public? It's one thing to create freelance art and exhibit it, but if you're showcasing art which has been created inhouse while on the job, it'll belong to the company as stated in a clause. Just be careful, I have loads of art I can't show from games I've worked on, when I was contract, full time and freelancer. It's common practice this all belongs to the client.

I believed that was only if they used it. If they choose to turn it down then it's just something I draw up and it's not like it has the company name or I have mentioned them by name.

Here are some unused logo designs for a bit of freelance work I did. The majority of them are meant to be the letter "M" (top row, furthest to the right is just a chain link).

Another graphic that was made and then somewhat forgotten, poor bugger.
Not a big fan of the clouds in hindsight but I think the general layout makes for a good bit of graphic design.

Company number and email address removed.

Currently designing a logo for a "Networking on the move" app, here's what I've got so far. Any feedback would be great as I feel I'm hitting a brick wall with this and I've got some more time.

maybe try adding silhouettes of a person walking / car / aeroplane inside those link nodes/circles if that makes sense or around the letter to convey movement...., Emphasis on MAYBE ! (I hate logos, they are never quite finished even if you spent years on them)

That is a pretty good idea but, for no other reason than legibility at a smaller size, I'm probably going to leave them blank.

Thank you for the feedback though.

A logo I made for a user who is now locked out of their account (no need to guess who), not my finest work but came across it whilst clearing out my dump, thought it was worth an airing.

...and finally two flat shades of the same colour.
Now I just have to think about what will work best.

Back to some old graphics.

Here's the illustration to an advert for a more economical form of domestic heating from around a six months ago.

It's a good charity and if I get somebody to sign up then all good.

Some more done. Worked on the type a little (and I mean a little) and I think I'm happier now, added a nice little sub graphic and straightened out the falling rice.

Gonna sleep on it and add some finishing touches tomorrow.

Currently working on a horror poster. Originally for halloween (after I scrapped the worm) but I doubt I'll be able to get it finished today. Thought it was best at least posting a WIP on the day.

I hope you finish it anyway, it looks pretty baller.

Otherwise pretty decent thread, bruv. Liking the use of, well, graphic arts. I couldn't have come up with a more worthless comment if I tried. Honestly don't have the patience for vector-based work. Drives me nuts. Respect, mang.

I managed to get it finished and uploaded yesterday in the end, give it a look and vote if you're feeling generous.

Thanks for the kind words, Lintire. Vector based graphic design is basically the only art style that I appear to be any good at. Seven years of studying art to find that out. Looking at your pieces I have to say that I'd trade my style for yours any day.
