Is it just me, or does everyone have trouble designing for themselves? When I tutor or critique others, I feel like I have so many more ideas and suggestions. It's like I automatically know what looks good, what looks bad, and how to improve things to help others. But when I'm designing for myself, like say a portfolio cover image, or business cards, I get lost...
I worked all morning on the two things listed above, and finally got fed up with the process. So I went to Alphagraphics and printed them! I think I'm happy with the final turn out, but I probably could have done better. Ah well. Maybe next time I'll pretend like I'm doing it for someone else?
Here is a look at my self promotional projects. Don't worry, I'll be taking them to Photoshop World with me! :)
So... you like?
