Pin-up Show and Social

Let's get this group (re)started! Bring whatever you are working on that you think could benefit from a little group feedback. We'll get acquainted and also talk about future programs.

To keep it simple, let's meet at my new office: 1095 Zonolite Rd #105 in Atlanta (Emory/Druid Hills) 30306. Attendance is free and Cadence Group will provide light snacks and beverages.

    Some people also use their last name, like "Anderson Design" or "Amy Anderson Design"

    You definitely want to put it. I have seen people just list "Freelance Graphic Designer" as a job and put "2008-present" or whatever year they started. Then you have the opportunity to describe what you did as a freelancer. You might try going to creativehotlist.com and clicking "search by experience" under "people." Look for junior designers and freelance designers and see how they do it.
    You might also try looking up "Freelance Graphic Designer" on LinkedIn.

    I'm glad it worked out. It's an amazing piece. I hope they like it. Thank you so much for the feedback. The Amnesty and Spark pieces were both real project. I wasn't sure if/how to put freelance experience on my resume.

    Kwesi, I ran out of room. If I were to guess what might be holding you back, I would guess it's your experience. I only see school on your resume. Even if you weren't paid for the Amnesty or Spark pieces, if they were actually produced, use them as experience. They are good pieces and that experience counts just like any other job.

    It shows that you know how to create a project, then carry it through the pre-press and printing phases. You've got the skills.

    Kwesi,
    Thanks for your feedback tonight on my work. I incorporated your chalice idea and it worked out well.

    I really like your portfolio. You have strong illustration skills. Not everyone can say that (I can't).

    I see that some of your projects are school and personal projects, but I wonder if any of the Amnesty or Spark stuff has actually been used? to be continued...

    This was a great meet-up. Thank you Sherra for putting this together. I didn't really know what to show tonight, but I would like some feedback on one thing. This is the link to the portfolio I show when I apply for graphic design jobs --- www.ferebeeportfolio.carbonmade.com. I just want to know if I can do anything better with this, because I haven't been able to learn a job in the field.

    I really enjoyed meeting all of you and viewing your work! Had a great time.

    One additional note: to save time between views, non-print projects/files should be accessible by a URL, not files that need to transferred or computers that need to be connected to the projector. If uploading to your website isn't an option, post to Behance or some other collaboration network and create a shortened URL link that is easy to remember.

    I'll amend that by saying that if you are working on a printed piece, a mock-up might also serve you better in terms of the feedback you get. We will have tacky stuff to hang flat print-outs and tables for placing everything else. It would be helpful from a spacial planning perspective if everyone who has RSVP'd could use the comments part of their RSVP to tell me what kind of project they are bringing.

    We have a projector and a large flat screen tv so no need to print unless you want something on which to capture comments.

    Will there be a projector available? Or should we plan on printing out and physically pinning them up!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
