Security Camera King Van Wrap

Posted on Monday, June 24, 2013 in Cars, Graphic Design

We finally got back the Van for the company. There are two more Ford Connects that are being wrapped like this. I helped work on the design for the wrap and Boca360Wraps did the wrapping as well as some of the artwork concepts. It came out looking really good. I’m pretty happy with the way it came out. It looks so much better on the actual van than it did on the design itself. It even looks way better in person than in these photos. I’m excited about seeing the other two!

Vendor Client Relationships in the Real World

Posted on Saturday, December 18, 2010 in Entertainment, Graphic Design, Information, Programming, Web Design

This is exactly how I feel when dealing with some of my clients. I’ve even went as far as making the analogy that if they were at a store and wanted to purchase an Item, but did not want to pay for the item upfront or even it’s full cost, would that store let them walk out with it? Of course not. Here’s a little video that will shine a little more light into this subject. Next time you decide you want to hire a designer or programmer but don’t want to make a deposit or pay what the project is worth, just think of this video…

New Twitter Background

twitter ss sm New Twitter Background

I finally got a few minutes of downtime which is pretty rare for me and decided to spice up my twitter background.

As a graphic designer & developer, it frustrates me that I don’t have a custom bad-ass web site and personal social networking designs. I spend all of my time designing for others and never have enough time to design for myself anymore. It’s unfortunate because the reality is, no matter how many hours I put in each day, I still seem to be getting no-where financially.

The thing that sucks about my field at the moment is that no one is really willing to pay what us designers and developers are worth. In turn, projects take longer to complete and are more difficult because freelancers end up having to take on more projects at a time, at lower costs than normal, in order to pay the bills & survive.
I strongly believe that if clients were willing to pay more, designers could focus more of their attention to the one specific project at hand and not worry about having to take on others just to stay afloat.

Regardless, I took a bit of time I had left over after completing a task and decided to finally design something for myself. Check out my new Twitter Background image and feel free to comment and let me know what you think.

I have uploaded it to the server in case anyone wants to use it as their background. I understand that it’s a personal background and has all my links on it, but if anyone requests a custom made one for use on their page, I will gladly create one for them as time permits.
