I think you have to upload all as one Corporate Identity package, but that’s just my guess based on what I’ve seen submitted previously.
Boring or not, they wouldn’t exist if there weren’t a demand for them. It’s what sells, so as long as there are people to buy them, designers will create them.
There’s enough here to accommodate different tastes.
You can changed the markets up top. Just click the arrow dropdown menu and it will lead you to the one of your choosing, while keeping you logged in. At least it works like that for me.
If we’re talking about minimal backgrounds or patterns, I think there’s just really too much of that on here. And a lot closely similar to one another even. I find the reviewer messages to be “hit or miss” on rejected files, I often get told to look at the popular files for reference. Any new graphic designer could interpret that as the sort of thing people are looking for and imitate it to draw in more sales. Problem is something like that often leads to an oversaturated market. I learned it’s best to think outside the box and not try to be another brick in the wall but instead stand out with something unique. If it’s well done, it will get noticed. Maybe start a “trend” of its own
You could start your own personal website. Themeforest has website designs for as cheap as 10 $ and you could promote your store here heavily across the website. And you can keep a Facebook or Twitter linked to both where you post updates on what is new and available either there or here.
Self-taught. Dabbling with Photoshop started as an after school hobby in during my high-school years. It was still a hobby for many years after, until one day while at University (studying modern languages) I got a random e-mail asking if I’d be willing to design a book cover. I wasn’t confident enough in my capabilities yet the pay was tempting during that time, and sort of stuck to my freelanced digital art since. And it’s oddly easier to find jobs doing this rather than the stuff I’ve got a diploma for.
Do you know the photographer for these? Maybe you could ask them about the way they achieved it. From my personal experience retouching for fashion photography, the skin looks soft and uniform in toning despite a bright sunlight, so I’m led to believe a lot of the look you see was captured in camera with the use of a softbox while shooting. The rest is just minimal cross-processing to even out tones and give the slightly vintage look to the last 2 photos.
Complaints from individuals sadly rarely result in removal of said files. It should be the marketplace that takes action against the filesharing sites. They have the “bigger voice” to back the claims and they’re losing money just like we are with every file downloaded illegally instead of bought here. Sadly it is hard to get these websites off the web, most get hosted in places where copyright infringement and filesharing aren’t accounted for as serious issues, but luckily they rarely host the files and rely on services like Rapidshare, turborit & the like for them. And since the MegaUpload incident they are more keen to take down anything with a copyright claim, so go ahead and just report those links wherever you see them hosted.
Sorry to hijack your thread Gembell. Neither of mine were moved. They’re still in the general Social Media category. Would someone from staff be kind enough to make the adjustment? Thank you
