2 things first, its 'accept' not acept, and second I'd like you to please not call yourself a graphic designer for various reasons you can contact me privately - but other than that you need to tell me what the 'duel' will be on before me accepting.
Or I guess I should be the one to judge that seeing I actually studied design, and I get to pick what the duel will be about Right?
I'll see if I can give it some time depending on what it is
Oh snap.Right, I will. Keep in mind though I'm not trying to come off as rude but this is the plain truth.
My reasons are, that you are not a Graphic Designer first of all. I have studied Graphic Design and got my Bachelor, with a minor degree in Multimedia Design, and you stated yourself you're only 14 so you don't really have the 4 year old education required or even the 2 year old education if you're going at a college to produce actual design works. That, plus not because its your fault but simply because you're young, you cannot possibly have the critical thinking and knowledge required or skillset to be a designer. And its clear you don't have them from the 3 samples of your work you already provided. That's one.
Second, and based on the first, from the 3 ''graphic'' things that I see here to be yours, a. your signature, b. the 'acept' image and c. the image you posted stating what you can do, all of them lack simple and basic design rules, which you would have known if you had studied design. To give some examples, the contrast between your images is very light to non-existent. The typography (aka words and fonts) are all in bad fonts and colors and don't stand out, or small size, or squeezed together or spread far apart. The technical terms for those are kerning, leading and tracking. You can google them.
Third reason is, I don't see a point in this duel except friendly competition perhaps. I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve or what a reward should be at the end - if any, and I'd like to know, not that it matters much really.
Fourth, I see the dueling as pointless because in design, what you do is give critique and feedback, even if something has many negatives and you don't like what you see. I can give you feedback to improve yourself, but dueling is silly. There's nothing to compete against and nothing will prove anything against ''Minecraft and simple but slick looking'' (as you put it), or thumbnails, profile pictures and desktop backgrounds. Those are amateur skills as we call them in the field, but they do not make you a designer, I'd say more of an artist really, but wouldn't use the word design. Design includes fields such as illustration (either digital or traditional), packaging, corporate identity branding, book design, typography, information design, product design, printing etc etc. Those are just some fields to give you an idea.
Fifth reason is, I don't think this is a fair duel for neither me nor you and this is because both me and you have very different skillsets. You said you do minecraft stuff, profile pictures and signatures and desktop wallpapers, whereas I can design posters, packaging, logos and branding, videos and animation, books and magazines and yes, if you want to call them desktop wallpapers as well. Only for me they are digital illustrations and not just a plain wallpaper. So if you still want to ''duel'' it would have to be common ground, and this would be art, either in portrait or landscape format.
That's all I can come up for now. I can gladly offer critique to you to improve your works if you want and even help you out, but you need to be able to accept honest critique in order to improve. If you still want to do this duel then fine, as I said it will have to be on wallpaper art with me setting the specifications.
And how is that, hmm? Just because someone is of a younger age, means they "don't have the critical knowledge required or skillset to be a designer?" If i'm being honest, I giggled a bit when reading that sentence.plus not because its your fault but simply because you're young, you cannot possibly have the critical thinking and knowledge required or skillset to be a designer.
Thats exactly my point The fact that you ask it proves it.And how is that, hmm? Just because someone is of a younger age, means they "don't have the critical knowledge required or skillset to be a designer?" If i'm being honest, I giggled a bit when reading that sentence.
Certainly. No more. Anything else can be done via pm.
Both of you are good at making graphics so yea there is no who is better everyone has there skill and everyone's is different. So I hope this post can end this and I hope you both get a good career. I just wanted to say that last thing.
Unless i silently applied that, I never said that I was mature or not mature.You're only 14 now and you think you are mature
With wix.com Yep! (Hopefully you took that as a joke, haha)you know how to build websites
