I think there's something wrong with the homepage...
« on: October 29, 2015, 05:07:44 PM »
When I go to the main site homepage (www.saintseiyafan.com), it's saying something about a Liu Octavio and his designs.  It also looks complete different.  Was the site hacked?  Did someone not pay the bills?

Well, frankly, that work with typography and those logos aren't much good.
It hurts me as a pro designer, more so, when it completely obscured my favorite webpage.

So many harsh comments...as long as the forum stays I don't see the problem. It's not like the homepage was getting any updates.

Those are characters from Five Nights at Freddy's.

@ Niello :

I know, that's why I hinted that Ikki would be Golden Freddy  :ikki:

I... am... so... sorry....
T_T

i'm trying to have this problem resolved with the hosting company.
so far i have done everything in my power to redirect SSF to the right homepage, but it just won't do it.(heck i was thinking for a long time to just scratch the front page due to no updates)

Im just trying to get more clientele flow with my freelance graphic design work.
bear with me while this is fixed.

YES, I admit my typography skill is very lacking. Since i never even touched the subject up until a few months ago.
So i focus mostly on the illustrative part of the business.
however here in vegas there is high demand for quickly done graphics, and if it's something i'm not good at i'll charge dirt cheap.

i'm not offended by your criticism, but rather it reminds me to get my butt in gear.

Oh, so it is you Newborn! Well, it wasn't meant harshly, just a statement.
The illustrations are good tough.
It is good to know that it isn't some hijack type of thing, muhahaha :D

Glad to hear the website hasn't been compromised; just that the host company needs to get their butt in gear.

Good luck with the business stuff, Newborn.

Well, I can if he wants, tough it's not something to be explained in few sentences or over a week.
It takes time, training and studying, which you have to do on your own, but in nutshell, typography really is just about geometry and has it's set of rules.
Once you get the hang of them, you can add your creativity. Problem with most people these days, when you can just hook up on the PC and go all with design,
is that lot of people is creative, but lack the knowledge. Later, you can experiment with sets of typos.

It's just that thanks to a competitive market in this expertise, lot of people without the skills are creating a bubble of quantity over quality and even their pricing is lesser.
Which makes the gap of visually illiterate customers and decrease of their trust in designers a tad bigger. Thus most designers being even bigger and meaner snobs.

But well, if Newborn wants, I can give him definitely some basic nods trough a message and some deconstructive commentary about the logos.
I remember being given advices about music from other musicians out there and keep this knowledge as a sacred treasure.
