Another cover picture.
its better than the blue one. Why do you want it so washed out?
They want it too look like an Dave Hill picture that has been aged a little. Exact words. They like it, so
Get rich or Dave Hill tryin'
it hurts my eyes. but hey, it's all about satisfying the customer
the sky isn't nearly interesting enough to get a majority of the frame. I hope you're gonna have a massive text block there or something
Or finding customers who are satisfied with what you do. Or explaining to them why what you do is better.
better but still hideous
especially in this case
Them Asics is hot son.
yes. but a lot depends on how you do the rest of the cover. read up about typography & page design...and use some nice fonts and gestalt principles
The problem is that I don't get to pick the fonts. I am told what to use. It really sucks. I don't get to dictate anything. I mean hell, I didn't even get to pick the picture. But hey, the money is good, so I don't care.
Refuse to be told.
the sky bothers me
At least it's better than the blue one...
Pretty shitty on not being able to choose the font though.
Much better than the last one
At this point man, I don't even care. It pays the rent, gives me spending money, and I dont have to flip burgers. It's easy as hell too. I'm going to start whipping up two covers - one for me and one for them. I'll show them both and see where we end up.
@ whoever thinks that actually looks good
Yeah, the average consumer is a fuckin idiot. As long as you know that this is not what photography should be, it's all good. I don't like it but make that money
I don't know why people care what your customers want. Make them happy, don't use it for your portfolio, get paid.
Which is why there are craftsmen and then there are day laborers.
