Sorry to take so much of your space, reminiscing about the days of my youth...Terry, I thoroughly enjoy your piece, honestly, but when I was 25, that piece would have been "cost prohibitive" to produce.

Ah, the smell of the NuArc and solvents used to clean an Ozalid (which used Anhydrous Ammonia to etch the film) in the morning.... Anyway, I digress...GraphicDeano, you have my vote.

using amberlith and an exacto knife, dry transfer letters, and huge vertical cameras to produce negatives to physically "burn" an image onto the numerous plates used to print one to four colors.

2/4/2009 4:51 AM
In those days, the GDers were actually the technicians who made the plates for offset printing, who did the trapping behind each letter into an image by hand and those of us who did layers of overlays...

To this old man, UN Rights, etc, is a classic example of what I was taught was Graphic Design. Of course, I was doing it long before the MacPlus gave Designers the ability to merge type and graphics.

I just joined this site and I love it! I like that there are free contests to win cool stuff such as this one. I submitted my work just now - "UN Rights Article 15" - check it out.

good luck all just put mine in "Tiled Sunflower" take a look :-)

Just a silly question... if the Taltopia Staff is to choose the winner from the top five, I wonder what would happen if all the entries got an equal number of votes? We'd know how the "staff" defines graphic design then, right?

a picture is worth a thousand words.

2/2/2009 9:27 PM
I love it Terry, and what ever you want to call it...I'm voting for it!

And yet to me, Forever Brotherhood is a Photo Journalistic Essay. Powerful yes, Communicative yes, Cover/Poster adaptable yes, Art absolutely, but I don't see it as graphic design. To me. it's a photograph with type elements.

I agree, perhaps the digital part confused some people, but some very nice imagery.

2/2/2009 6:21 PM
To Terrytee, your icon looks alot like some of my photos, great minds I guess.

2/2/2009 5:03 PM
It's a gestalt. text alone or with imagery conveys an idea, without explanation

...so here's what I consider graphic design... and I decided against the medallion and entered the ship GDs I'm doing for a present client. Hope you vote for me........

2/2/2009 8:39 AM
sorry to be so anal, but since my range of techniques varies with each customer, I want to put my best foot forward and not waste anyone's time...

2/2/2009 8:37 AM
...so if I entered a graphic I created that was then cast into a run of 1 Troy ounce Silver medallions... would that be considered as Graphic design for the purposes of this contest?

2/2/2009 8:35 AM
the products and tools with which the image is made, the kind of image produced, and the material on which the image is applied or formed...

2/2/2009 8:34 AM
the methods, processes and techniques employed in these design arts. Three components necessary for any Graphic Design function are

GD are arts represented by drawing or imposing on a flat surface an image that communicates a message: also

2/2/2009 8:32 AM
Just to make sure, because I really don't "trust" wickipedia definitions... I went back to my very old source and came up with this...

2/2/2009 4:18 AM
then I read where GD is now considered to be only computer generated cover art, or clip art... set me straight folks, is painting an image, scanning it into AI, adding typographical aspects, GD or GA?

2/2/2009 4:15 AM
untill he went into the more finer aspects of his skill-his portraits, paintings with messages...

2/2/2009 4:14 AM
Before I enter, I'm somewhat confused. As a Navy Illustrator Draftsman in the days before the MacPlus, GD was considered what illustrators like Norman Rockwell did as his day job...

Nice calendar art, Mama. Got my vote.

1/31/2009 1:28 PM
You can upload your best designs in picture format, all work must be digital no sketches or paintings.

1/31/2009 8:04 AM
by the way, Just looked up the "Wacom Bamboo Pen Tablet and Pen" on Amazon.com $64.99! Just ordered one! yay me!

Photoshop's ability to mimic sketch art or painting may confuse some not familiar with its range. I think most people here understand that, or they wouldn't be competing for a tool that will broaden their digital ability.

I like "Under the gun" way creative! Nice work Charles! The Hurst is sweet!
