comment Client refusing to pay
@Scott it might be a duplicate, depends on what the deal with the contract is. The key characteristic of that linked question is that there wasn't a written contract (and some unrelated stuff about powerpoint...).

comment Client refusing to pay
What does your contract say? Most contracts I've used have some sort of deposit and cancellation penalty written in. Also, the client's analogy is terrible - if you've got 10 years' experience and it doesn't suit their needs, chances are their brief didn't communicate their needs. And you've already done a bulk of the work: it's not like a customer in a shop, it's like hiring builders to build an extension then trying to cancel without paying when they're mostly finished because they "thought it'd be more spacious". Or sending a dish back in a restaurant because they misread the menu.

comment What inspired this logo's design?
No, it's not saul bass. There was something (maybe a 90s comedy drama a bit like Ally McBeal?) that had a logo just like this ... I think the first letter was green, the colours were brighter, and I'm sure the poster/cover had one or two people standing and leaning in a sassy "pretty woman" pose ... it's really bugging me that I can't remember what it is! Closest I can find are logos for Rent and Clerks which are both grungy takes on whatever this is...

comment How to present email marketing in a portfolio?
Yup, and (as with web pages), if a selling point is that you do responsive (email) design, showing the same design on a selection of differently sized devices usually goes down well

comment Highlighting/Changing the backroung colour of a text that is on a path-ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR
Do you want the background colour to follow the shapes of the letters, like an outline of the letters, or to be a smooth line following the line of the path, like it's a ribbon the text is sitting on? (I thought both had been asked before here but actually I can't find either)

Fair points, I said "track" in an earlier version, can't remember why I changed it - I'll change it back

comment How do I earn more as remote freelance Graphic Designer?
The short answer is, by finding real, serious clients, who want a designer they work with to really develop a style that brings out their brand, not the kind of clients you find on freelance sites, who generally just want something quick, professional-ish and fashionable-ish. As for how to find them: I've been in-house for too long to answer that but I'm sure others here can.

comment Is creative writing needed to be a Graphic Designer?
I spent my first day of my first job at a small company putting up shelves in the office... That job certainly had variety.

By "Properties" I mean a) list name b) is "Continue...stories" ticked yes/no c) is "Continue...book" ticked yes/no - the three things you set on creating a list, visible in the screenshot
