I think this thread needs a summary, otherwise readers may leave still confused. Most readers will not care if the results are "true eps" or "true vector files", they just want to get something done. However, they should be aware of the limits and constraints on certain techniques. Here are the key concepts given in the answers: Photoshop is a pixel ...

Unless explicitly stated in your contract that you can't show the work you did in your portfolio, it's usually implied you can. Ideally, as you've learned, you want to be collecting these artifacts while employed. If you don't have them k now, your options: ask your old employer if you can have copies (easier to do if you left on good terms) ask an ex ...

For the rights, you can have a look at this question, it has already been answered: Who owns authorship when an employee makes a design for their employer? For the solutions: Your situation is not worse than someone who lost his/her hard disk. You won't find back all your research but that's only important if you want to apply fora position of Art ...

Its going to be hard to answer this question because we do not know the details of your contract/employment. If you have left on bad terms you would hard pressed to be allowed to use the designs as a portfolio piece. If you do plan to use anything you did for the company as work you performed you could get hit with a cease and desist letter, the company ...

In a work-for-hire situation (as an employee) you are not seen as an independent entity and you retain nothing which was create during your employment. Even if something is unused, if it was created for the employer or at the urging of the employer it is theirs. In terms of digital copies, that's to be negotiated between you and the employer. They are ...

you want to know a system default font then better you go with "monotype corsiva". What i am suggesting is to take a normal sans font, because writing style fonts are good in Logo, but if it comes to your entire website content it will not look good.

In my experience it is almost impossible to perform an artwork which will be 100% perfect, especially, when one's experience is limited and most of imperfections are typical to starters. This is why when I want to press "Send" button I take a break of 10 minutes or so and refresh my mind - after that I re-look at the work and almost always find something to ...

There is always some cut-off point in the graphics industry - a Point of No Return. What that is, depends entirely on the total workflow. Not everything will get printed right away (unless it's a real rush job). Even when it's already printed, not everything gets cut and further prepared. Even when it's already cut and packaged, it doesn't get send to the ...

If you're hiring for an Art Director position that means there will be other designers who will be managed by this employee. The Art Director rarely does the technical work but still needs to know about the process and how to get the most out of his team. Even if the Senior Designer will not work in the same workplace, he will still need to work in ...

I would try to ask questions that can pinpoint his skills and his critical thinking....Instead of "How long does it take you to complete a project?" I would ask some of the following Last three recent pieces of work he/she has completed or currently working on Describe how would you approach execution of a specific project [insert a scenario here] How well ...

The topics are good, but most of these questions are too narrow to be good interview questions. If it can be answered in one word, it's too narrow, it needs to spark a conversation: Instead of "how long did X take", try "Talk us through the process for X, from initial brief to completion". Then you'll learn how they handle projects, how they develop ...

You migh show him a few of your recent "jobs" (unless you are working on confidential stuff like upcoming-product-artwork) and let him critique the way they were presented or documented. You might also ask him how (detailed) he will assign jobs, if he is hired as "art director". Maybe he has got a template or a planning-tool that he likes using. I am ...

How long did you take to complete (insert one of his artwork)? You probably can't get much useful information out of a question like that. How long it takes to complete a project often has a lot to do with all the variables outside of one's control. In that (insert another of his artwork) you did, was it a solo effort or did someone else help you? ...

Okay, this is not an answer - flavor generally means a style or taste. I tried to imagine what a flavor would look like. I found: Wiley Flavour and Fragrance Journal which is interesting. Then: Wix Templates which if you call each style a flavor, you're getting there. I would call the first one (IP Law Firm - Kant & Rider) mint, but I got a bit ...

As Rafael suggested, "flavor" in that context means they want to see different variations of the logo. In other words, they just want to see a set of drafts, a proof with a few suggestions for the logos! Nothing special, just another way to ask you to prepare more than one logo to choose from. You should simply create a few different drafts of logos to ...

Hum... This is a gess, but I think they are refering to "style" probably one with some gradient, a version on just one ink, one specific with black ink, one version for dark background. If it is on the revisions stage could be to decide which look to choose.

Was searching this question out, and I know it is several years past now, but maybe someone else will be in the same shoes as I am. This is the solution I found to work: Go to "Document Raster Effects Settings" in the Effect Menu. The resolution might be in 72, so change it to 300 (go ahead and tick the "Anti-alias" check box under "Options" while you're ...

.SVG is the format for using vector graphics in the web! Look into the cool stuff people are doing with "scaleable vector graphics" in the web realm! That should solve your issue. Happy hunting!

From how I understand your question, the Puppet Warp Tool should give you the control to to create the effect that you're looking for. Here's a howto and another one.

Short answer. No. You don't need math to be a designer. The long answer. If you want to express your creativity through methods which may require math, such as programming, having an understanding (basic-advanced) will reduce the barrier to discovery and exploration. The unsolicited $0.02 If you can do your taxes, estimate costs, hours, and deadlines, ...
