    Help me decide what to name my new personal project. The concept behind the project is creating unofficial artwork for my favorite songs. Here are the hashtags I came up with incorporating my brand's name—Hear&See. Thanks guys!

    FKA Jacob Prestigious


    Since I am totally not involved in UI or graphic design circles, I'm wondering what you guys think? Yay, Nay, somewhere in between? Tips?

    Trusted Prestigious

    Last year I posted this, and I don't think I ever did a follow up. Here's the website I built for her (first time doing this). The logo can be seen there too.

    I feel like “graphic design” is the red headed stepchild now and UX is the cool kid. Looking at the job market especially, the demand for UX seems ridiculous. Part of me is offended and part of me is getting ready to go along with the ride.

    it was all a dream Prestigious

    haha yeah, I had to change my linkedin title to Visual Designer. But I've interviewed for UX/UI positions. They all intermix. You should really go along with the ride cause UX/UI designers make waaaaay more. Which is annoying cause I'm always fixing their files.

    which reminds me of this article:
    I’d Like to Be a Creative Director, Please

    "I’m really into graphic design, by the way. But, as previously stated, I’m not looking to be anything less than a Creative Director. (Graphic Designer just doesn’t sound as cool, you know?)"

    Spend your under grad focusing on typography. Have a basic understanding of html and css. If you want to specialize in anything I would focus on motion and or ux. But seriously typography means everything.

  18. haha I've been sort of purposefully downsizing the business because I don't wanna work too much in this field anymore because it's dumb and I hate it, even though I enjoy the craft so right now it's just me.

    Imagine if everyone valued Design and paid us out the ass even if you’re not a super famous agency
