Branding (logo) and contact info are very important to have on any ad piece. The readability of the second piece is very compromised, I would avoid using outline on text unless it is a header. The actual amount of text does not matter so long as the core message is being delivered concisely and accurately. IMHO $45 off doesn't tell me anything unless I know ...

You need the contact info from the second image. But, keep it short and simple. The text needs to be readable, like the first image. A modern style really helps. The text should be readable even when it is a small image (i.e. a sidebar advert) The photo really can't be stretched. If you have a website, include it. I think it's written over the car logo, ...

Logo and SOME contact information should be on all things. Now you don't need all of your contact info on everything. Brick and Mortar Store / Restaurant: Location is needed Online Reseller: Website is needed Service Provider like you: Phone number is needed Now this is just fundamental and gets very open quickly. For example, does someone reserve their ...

An excellent rule of thumb is to always have a logo and contact information on anything that can be shared individually. Realize people won't take a screenshot of your Facebook page and pass that around, but people might copy the image and pass that around. The only reasons the first image is better are because A) the text is actually readable and B) the ...

First, don't give up and don't think you're stuck in what you're doing now! I don't know what I can suggest you about your present job but maybe you're taking too much on your own. It's not healthy indeed to stress so much about your full time job it affects your evenings and nights. That's the kind of worries that are usually more common for entrepreneurs. ...

I would suggest that a couple tubes from each light be removed. I've had great success with this request in the past. This way it still looks like the lights are on and the department is active, but it's not so bright it effects the workers. I'm assuming the lights are fluorescents... which are horrible. However, if management doesn't care you're kind of out ...

There is no standard. Seasoned designers often understand the value of vector files and will often start with the vector format then generate raster format. The resolution independence of vector makes it almost automatically a "given" for a logo. A logo is most often sized and scaled a whole range of sizes. Starting with, or providing vector, just makes ...

Theres no standard. There is no standards body outside Adobe who has mostly captured the GD market. This is graphics design not engineering, if it was engineering youd have several competing standards. The formats themselves have standards offcourse since that is engineering. It all depends on the industry, not yours, the clients. Clients in small business ...

I'm not willing to say there is no standards. There's no standard if one wants to ignore them, as much as there's no standard in web development or any other profession then. If you speak to a print/prepress designer, they know the standards and it's anything that is the most compatible with the postscript technology and that will render the best print ...

Its not a regulated profession. There are no required certificates, education, or licenses required. Anyone can call themselves a Web Designer without legal ramifications. If you can create a website, even a simple one, then congratulations you're a web designer. Beyond that is a matter of are you good enough. Note I don't say good, I say good enough. Not ...

Take a look at the following link: http://ux.meetup.com/ You can filter the groups according to location. I recently found a group that was offering free UX critiques & advice for companies/startups. Hopefully you'll find something similar.

It is not unusual for international organizations to include clauses in contracts that their names or logos cannot be used by the contractor in promotional material. The organizations (or their legal departments) probably want to avoid the appearance of endorsing the contractor in any way. And, of course, have complete control over the use of their ...

The piece of work may not be made public by the company until a specified release date if at all. The company then would not want it being leaked via other forums before it is offically launched publicly by the company.

It is most likely that the person commissioning this work is a Freelancer themselves. They are not the company that is asking for work. Some Freelancers do this to save time. They accept a job then subcontract it. Sometimes even on the same site, but usually on another site. A Freelancer will reduce the work they are getting if companies find out that they ...

It's possible that they don't want their competitors to know. If the site is giving them a competitive edge... they'd probably want to keep that as long as they can.

It's not normal, but not uncommon. There can be many reasons for it. Often it is simply a strong-armed legal department that insists on NDA-type relations with all vendors. I typically leave a line in my contracts that states I reserve the right to showcase the work in my portfolio. If this raises a red flag for the client, then it's a topic we can ...

Another common issue is, that by posting their content on Behance in your name, their brand is on a platform they can't control. It may be difficult (even borderline Quixotic) in our age, but many organisations try hard to keep complete control of all uses of their brand. Worries can include: They might simply have unspecified concerns about a comms ...

Some companies are very snobby about who does work for them and for others. And therefore may not want (with respect) a new, unknown freelancer laying claim to their (potentially big) brand. Lets say for example IBM had a new logo and brand designed, you would expect them to go to a big, expensive design house in New York. But if it became apparent that ...
