There are some basic tips you should do before you start any project :)
With the world wide spread of free fonts, font bundles, and the way computers deal with typography, “font” is the commonly used word when talking about a specific kind of type. The word “typeface” is not used as much as the word “font” but can sometimes be interchanged but the truth of the matter is that one is not the same as the other. They are rather family of each other.
In this post, we are going to show you the do’s and don’ts of creating a stunning portfolio. We hope that these points will not only be helpful but can also inspire you to do something truly unusual.
A picture says a thousand words or so we've heard. And we see this everyday- feelings, thoughts and conversations are expressed through photos, drawing and illustrations.
Think of all the children’s’ books you have ever seen in your life. Don’t you love how colorful and vibrant they are? The pictures are always so vivid and eye catching. I love how even though all children’s books share these similarities, they also have defining illustrative styles. Some books use watercolor paintings printed on the pages, others use a mix of painting and collage, others are all digitally illustrated while others look like they were created with ripped paper and set up as a colorful collage.
Photographers know very well the meaning of a good color management, since they often have to obtain physical copies of their pictures.
As you’re reading the title of this article, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Why would I sketch everything? My drawing is terrible!” Stop right there! You’ve got to think more positive about your artistic abilities. Sure, you may not be great at drawing, but that has nothing to do with your ability to sketch regularly. There are several benefits to sketching, and keeping an open mind is a great way to start discovering those benefits.
In the world of graphic design, there are tons of terms that look so similar they become interchangeable. There are also words that don’t look similar, but are related; so they also get used interchangeably. In order to be a great graphic designer, you have to know all the jargon and lingo of the craft, right? Well… this may not be completely true.
The main purpose of any portfolio type is to fully present an author’s creative potential and approach to clients and employers. Creative potential includes skills level and quality, personal experience, the amount of completed projects. But, the most important thing that each designer has to be characterized by within his/her potential is the uniqueness. Everyone would like to stand out the crowd, have his own opinion, stand his own position. And an online portfolio is exactly the way to do it. Having it each author is free to speak, speak through his/her works, speak by presenting the inner world, imagination and worldview. Such a voiceless but so meaningful conversation will definitely catch an eye of your audience.
Are you active on Pinterest? Do you create Pinterest graphics to promote your blog? If you are a seasoned Pinterest user then you know that the best Pinterest format is vertical, long and preferably eye catching. Getting lots of repins depends greatly on the quality of your graphic and the information it provides. TIP: Infographics also make great Pins!
