Channingw's Junior Graphic Designer Application

Recommended Posts

Junior Graphic Designer Applications

If you want to help create content on imperial gaming this is your chance. You will need to show me that you are able to make content for the server so I'll be requesting that you show me your skills. Basically, your job entails you to do grunt work for me. This means making me custom backgrounds and icons for menus - very basic art skills are requested but you must still attempt to put as much effort into it as possible.

Application:

Name In-game: Channingw

Teamspeak Name: Channingw

Playtime on the server: 1 week, 23 hours

Age: 19

Do you own the Adobe suite (etc. you have - Photoshop, Illustrator) and which ones are they: No, I do not.

If you don't own the Adobe suite, what programs do you have (Don't say MS Paint you will be denied): Procreate on the iPad Pro

Do you prefer making digital art or do you prefer to do freeform? Freeform on a digital medium

Show me some work you have made previously otherwise make 2 icons that represent an Admin and another Icon representing a User. Icons must be 256 x 256 and in PNG form with a transparent background (Upload directly to the forums): 

I hand draw all my work on my iPad so it will definitely not be as clean as I'd like. Just throwing my hat in the ring since I recently picked up drawing as a hobby.

Icons:

You are an amazing artist from the look of your previous work.
I don't think the icons will work because of the fact that they aren't symmetrical and perfect {Hand Drawn}, however you can design logo's, Backgrounds, Posters, and many more.
I Think you would do very well as a Graphic Designer.
Good Luck ;D

-1 the icons you have provided as an example for your application look very "hand drawn" as the lines are quite sloppy and overall doesn't look very well defined. To me, these icons look like an example you would give to a client before doing the real thing.

As mentioned in my application, I drew the icons on my iPad, hence the "hand drawn" look as they were literally hand drawn. It is very hard to get precise lines on a 256x256 size but I do understand that hand drawing icons will come with the downside of not being clean compared to making icons on photoshop etc. I appreciate the feedback though.

+1, If you can just refine the icons similarly to the anime guy it'd be good, all the other artwork looks amazing :D

If you haven't noticed but this is Graphic Design... And I do understand you used an Ipad which is somewhat making a graphical design, but we are looking for clean and smooth icons not fairly messy hand drawn ones. There is definite potential from looking at your previous work but you need to improve definitely on the designs...

For being drawn on an Ipad, those designs are amazing. I don't even know how to get straighter lines than those using a pencil, let along on an Ipad. I think that you would be an absolutely fabulous concept creator for the Graphic Design Team, making something from an idea in your head, and putting it into practice with the help of other graphic designers. Although not the most creative concepts, they are appealing and look very good.

Agreed, really nice dude. I like the rough look, it gives the logo character.

I honestly can't understand the -1's on this, anyway. Obviously a great amount of skill. +1

You don’t have to “understand” them, just accept that other people have their own opinion, don’t downvote them for it when it is perfectly valid.

Neutral, the past work is good but we don't need anyone who uses an iPad as their main resource on the graphic designer team.
