Highlighter ($15)

This is a highlighter that is useful in many circumstances. I initially designed this one to be used in sports videos, highlighting a specific player. ScoutNationHD, a well-known YouTube channel that showcases players, uses this highlighter. Check out this video to see it in action.

The file includes 2 versions: one has a light blue fill, while the other has no fill.

Note that this is a PNG sequence that can be imported straight into your project.

Avoid the Slaps (3 of 4) | The 4-Year Process

Last time we talked about the choices you have of either working alone or in a team. Since I believe that working in a team can boost your skills, I invited you to be my teammate so that I keep sharing my hard-earned knowledge with you.

For 4 years, I’ve been working on a process that allows me to create awesome projects. Let’s think about it. You’re a graphic or product designer. How do you create awesome projects? Well, it’s a very broad question, isn’t it? I will be more specific: let’s say your artwork files are perfect. You just created a design that convinced you and your client. You feel so proud of what you have accomplished. And now… the long-awaited but most-feared step comes: print and production.

Last time we went through 3 face slaps that you face even after you graduate:

  1. Finding a job.
  2. Knowing what to do.
  3. Mastering your job.

Today I am going to share a small story with you. Like most graphic designers, I started getting freelance work. I also got employed soon after I graduated. In fact, I got accepted in many companies so I had the freedom to filter them as I wanted.

Finally, I had two choices:

#1 I work in a quiet environment, nobody tells me exactly what to do, so I am free to create any design I find suitable, and the workplace is close to where I live.

#2 I work with a team of people, my supervisor tells me what to do, and the workplace is far from home.

Both choices offer the same salary.

Take a minute and think about it. What would you choose?

Avoid the Slaps (1 of 4) | Face Slaps

Back when I was a university student majoring in Graphic Design, I used to think I’ll get all the information I needed from the classes I attended. I thought I would learn all the techniques that would allow me to create the perfect outcome. You know, those little tips, tricks and techniques that only “professionals” know about.
