I dont know you too well, The examples are good but one I know for sure has an extensive tutorial / template on it, I know because my friend has it. Which just leas me to wonder how much of it is your own expertise, and how much of it is copying from another person and putting a new name on it

 

Edit: Had him send me the photos of it

now this could be a misunderstanding, or something im missing, but I went and looked at hermes' profile on steam, and he has a steam group there which only he is part of, this group links some imgurs of things he has made, and he included this image:

eHaAnu4.jpg

 

Now, these two look strikingly similar. So there are three possibilities. He has copied you, you have copied him, or you have used a template.

If you copied him, thats just plagarism, if he copied you, thats also plagarism (but considering these images were up in january I dont think he did)

if you used a template, then that shows a lack of creativity on your part.

 

I noticed anthony also said something similar above about the circle logo

As I stated above most of my examples are drafts and practices which I have created with the help of tutorials. These were mostly practice so that i could learn the techniques and tool of photoshop.

Okay, that would be understandable, but considering you said this:

Surely you could come up with a bit more than just templates and tutorial logos? If people wanted a logo from a template, they could just download the template and do it themselves. What you've done here is just show a bit of laziness and lack of creativity.

Yes, knowledge from the tutorials and also it isn't a template I spent hours making those rewatching them and doing it my way.

I don't appreciate you coming in saying I'm a liar and that I don't have any creativity. I don't see what the point is of putting countless hours into your work if some guy on the internets going to shit on you for it.  Also Thanks, now I'm considering taking down my application.

Hi, Head of Production here. Let me attempt to save this before we lose a great applicant.

From what I see, your application is more than sufficient for you to become a Graphic Designer for the Media Team. You have provided various, great examples of your proficiency in Photoshop and obviously have a passion for graphic design, something that should not be underestimated. The Media Team will always appreciate help graphically to help us differentiate our community and to create an identity unique to us and suited for us.

Now, in relation to your passion. Just because "some guy on the internet" has decided to needlessly shit on your application for whatever reason does not mean you should close your application. From when I'm writing this, you have 7 people in support of your application, which is far more important than one person's negative support. It is obvious to me that you are wanted more than you are not wanted, so give yourself a chance. You should not let one person govern your dreams and doubt your passion.

So apparently constructive criticism that was in no way aggressive or rude towards you is needlessly shitting on your application.

 

All I was saying is there is little point for a graphic design team if all they're going to use it templates or tutorials from the internet. And just because you did it "your own way", does not make it original work, they still look basically the same as others that used the same tutorial/template.

the thing is chef, templates (and tutorial logos) are, by definition, not original. There's nothing wrong with using one, but when it is, as you say, to differentiate, its not really going to succeed in that, as plenty of people have used those templates before. Those kinds of things are good learning tools, but shouldnt be used as a final product or in a portfolio.

 

also snowy, never called you a liar.
