DESIGNER????

I am really busy lately, for a coming wedding expo on Jan 08'. Really fed up with the so called 'DESIGNER' in our office. Let's see the brochures that the DESIGNER had designed.


Well, this was what the DESIGNER's artwork. This artwork been rejected by the printing company few times, what's wrong? Size wrong (not A4 or A3, don't know what alien size), file wrong (not PSD, should be AI), wording adjustment wrong (too near to corner), outline wrong (has to leave a space for them to cut the paper) and etc. WTF... A DESIGNER doesn't know all this? (a little comment from the printing people: "your company's designer not 'dim' la..." =.= i know also..)

In the end, not to 'troublesome' the DESIGNER, me and another colleague edited the artwork. Feel free to comment on it...

I think both designs look good. The red theme is very striking, but the lighter more feminine purple is soft to the eye.

Maybe you could compromise?

Lee Chien said...

hahahaha.. finally i used the feminine purple, the red colour is too old-style... if i let you see the logo originally designed by the DESIGNER i think you'll vomit...

LukXiuFung said...

Er...I am also those so called designer. I am graphic designer but I think I more into web design because I prefer web design.

I also duno such thing when I start working cause I am not from that field. I study multimedia technology. Design just my interest.

Let me guess...your designer is fresh grad? male? The color totally cannot..beh tahan ah...hehe.. the font, size, arrangements...

It look more like a draft...mean not an output yet...

just my opinon...no offend here :P

Lee Chien said...

he addresses himself as 'DESIGNER', that we dun think so... he is male but he is NOT fresh grad, he's almost age 30 and he said he has many years of experience, and this was what he had designed..

i'm not to comment of other designer, but what i so called 'DESIGNER' is the designer in my office only. My boss also said he's not pro, but this DESIGNER insists that he is a DESIGNER and he CAN design.

Let me see if i can find the original logo or not, then you'll know.. haih...

Sean said...

Perhaps he is not a pro-designer. As the printing and publishing are the basic of the designer.

Edward said...

Your design is far more better than his leh... Haha, maybe he said he is pro so that your boss won't fire him?

Mummy to QiQi said...

Lee Chien said...

Lee Chien said...

Cassie the Missy said...

hmm.. the 1st one really a bit too striking.. urs soothe the eyes better.. like it more..

mayb ur DESIGNER's experience is not in this field? haha..

SlowCatchUpKuan said...

not bad wor. urs is softer and more suitable for wedding i think.

宝茹 said...

I was just thinking, what if MR. DESIGNER knows your blog?

@_@

Lee Chien said...

cassy the missy,
the DESIGNER said he has many years of experience in event management field, hahaha...

slowcatchupkuan,
hahaha.. thx..

宝茹,
i'm not sure he knows my blog or not, but dun care la, i'm telling the truth only, up to him can accept or cannot..

I think the cover should have a more outstanding background (but still feel it's in the same theme), don't same like the other pages. Feminine purple is a wise choice.

Don't know, I'm not in the design field nor advertising...

Lee Chien said...

apple,
me also not in design field, so i dunoe how to design, can only do some simple edit.. too bad..

JaMiLLa said...

LeeChien,

Both of the design are the same theme...

The purple is more likely to accept by people bcos it contains soft and romance which is dark pink and purple. Nice combination.

Whereas FRESH RED is not suitable to use as background cos its too sharp for people looking at it. Its better to use that red when you wanna focus on one object. That would look nice. If use as background, it look like TOO HOT for love although we always color it as RED but just on an object right...

Another thing I observed was the lines or stripe were too mannyyyyy on the red design....macam too complex....Love and wedding shdnt be feeling too complex in a sense....shd be loving and simple.

After ur edit, it become more relax, warming and soft with less stripe and lines. Overall, its nicer than the red design. Honestly im not puji leechien cos shes my bloggermates. Its just the feeling when I look at this 2 color of design. Color is very important in the design...Different color represent differ meaning....red is hot, sexy....blue and green is refreshing....and others...

Im not taking design too ...but little bit interested ....jus our intutive on color la hor leechien...

U did the great job for urself....

Lee Chien said...

jamilla,
i wish i can design so that i can make it better, haih...

thanks alot for your comment oh... very useful... :D

Orange said...

Talk about pro designer. Maybe that "designer" doesnt have passion for love or he just dun gib a damn about the color-sense. Heart is Red, fullstop. But then again the theme is alright, abit of girl-touch does make it better.

Lee Chien said...

orange,
thanks... the 'designer' really has no passion, so i duwan to ask him do any design already...
