Typography Tutorial - 10 rules to help you rule type
 
03:35
Graphic Design Tutorial: 10 Typography rules to help you improve your type skills. Get better at graphic design by understanding how to use type. Improve your layouts instantly by following these 10 easy to follow rules. How can you quickly apply typographic rules to regain control of your layouts by following these 10 golden rules of typography? These rules are distilled down from the things that I learned by going to Art Center College of Design. Generally speaking, there are two types of typography– expressive typography (type is visual, carries the meaning of the word and sometimes appears as physical shapes) and functional typography (type that is meant to be read). I will focus on the latter. When starting out, it is best to learn the fundamentals of good design: hierarchy (primary, secondary and tierchiary reads), flow (how a person “reads” the layout by following the movement of their attention), legibility (in Western culture, type is read top to bottom, left to right so it’s important to arrange type accordingly), grouping (organizing blocks of type in intelligent and logical groups) and interest, achieved through contrast (scale, texture, color, density, negative space). Use any typeface you like as long as it’s one of the following: Akzidenz Grotesque, Avenir, Avant Garde, Bell Gothic, Bodoni, Bembo, Caslon, Clarendon, Courier, Din Mittelschrift, Franklin Gothic, Frutiger, Futura, Garamond, Gill Sans, Gotham, Helvetica, Letter Gothic, Memphis, Meta, OCRB, Rockwell, Sabon, Trade Gothic, Trajan and Univers. _________________________________________________________________ Great books to learn more about typography: Stop Stealing Sheep & Find Out How Type Works by Erik Spiekermann http://amzn.to/2iNXwC8 Josef Müller Brockmann Pioneer of Swiss Graphic Design http://amzn.to/2k7o5Yb Typography Manual @2017 Chris Do https://blind.com/blog/typography-manual/ _________________________________________________________________ Animation by: Leo Dinh Red Cat Motion http://redcatmotion.com Music and sound design by: Adam Sanborne http://adamsanborne.com _ Listen to our podcast on iTunes: The Futur https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-futur/id1152604340?mt=2 Android Stitcher http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/aaron/the-futur HOW TO SUPPORT THE FUTUR: Purchase a Kit: http://theskool.co/collections/all or subscribe to the secret and private Master mind group on Facebook with exclusive videos not released anywhere else.

How to Respond To Price Buyers or Low Budget Clients - Roleplay
 
05:59
👉Subscribe: https://goo.gl/F2AEbk How do you do value based pricing? What is value based pricing? How do you deal with a client that has a low budget? How can you get them to raise their budget? Sarah plays the role of a price-based buyer while Chris tries to price the client not the job. He practices retreating and helps her to understand what is at stake if she were to fail. [Intro] 00:00 Just get me in a room with a live client. A live client, meaning: They have a real problem they need to solve, and they have real money, and they’re gonna pick somebody, and I will close a good percentage of those jobs. 0:28 THE CLIENT JUST DROPPED A 2,000 POUND “ANCHOR.” IGNORE THAT ANCHOR. 0:35 Here’s the thing: I think I know what you want. I’m just not sure I’m not the guy to do it for you. 0:51 DON’T WANT THE JOB. 0:56 INSTEAD, GENUINELY WANT TO HELP YOUR CLIENT. There’s this girl I know in Edinborough that could probably do it for a lot less, however, I’m just conflicted ‘cause I don’t know how to do that for that budget. Usually we start somewhere between fifty to twenty thousand dollars (or pounds)... 1:10 DROP YOUR OWN “ANCHOR.” 1:22 Maybe there’s more budget somewhere else if you wanna work with me, otherwise I just can’t take it on. What do you think? 1:32 It sounds like you probably don’t need me. I’m sure if you call a few people, you can find somebody else to do it for you. It’s just not gonna be me. Sadly. But if you should talk to other people and you don’t like what they do, feel free to give me a ring. The price is still the same, but then I can help you. 2:01 What’s motivating this conversation today? What are you trying to get done? 2:06 DIG DEEPER. DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM. 2:06 LBC: We’re not getting high enough sales, um, we’re not reaching the, um, quite the right target, um, we want to sort of fit in with a younger, “millennial” vibe. 2:19 Here’s what I heard you say: You’re not getting enough sales, you’re not (um) connecting with the right audience. Those are big problems to solve. Like, if you don’t fix this problem, what’s it gonna cost you? 3:27 So if you could buy an insurance policy to stop this from happening, how much percentage would you spend? 3:49 GET THEM TO SAY WHAT IT’S WORTH. 3:51 Thirty percent sounds very generous. Now, I don’t think we need to spend that much because 30% of a million dollars. Here’s the great news: I can help you for a lot less than that. If you should decide that we’re a good fit, we can get into contracts, and then we can figure out schedules and all that kind of stuff. So not only are we gonna fix the problem, but we’re gonna plug the hole in the boat, we’re gonna actually grow and expand the business. This is what I help my clients do. 4:44 BECOME THEIR FIDUCIARY. BE ON THEIR SIDE. 4:57 DO MORE THAN SOLVE VISUAL PROBLEMS, SOLVE BUSINESS PROBLEMS. 5:40 I’m on your side, I’m neutral, I care about you, and I match your energy, and I flirt with you a little bit. I mean, if I can, if I can make you laugh and teach you something, I’m, I’m gonna win. -- 7 Strategies For Wealth and Happiness by Jim Rohn https://amzn.to/2q9Itsv Pricing Creativity by Blair Enns https://www.winwithoutpitching.com/pricingcreativity/ Chris met up with fans of The Futur, in Edinburgh. Here they roleplayed this scenario: Chris, offering his creative services to a “low-budget” client.

Why Some Designers Are More Valuable Than Others
 
06:58
Why can some designers charge more than others? What makes them more valuable? Your value is determined by the quality of your questions. Low vs. High value questions. Asking why demands a deeper understanding. Become more valuable, build expertise by asking better questions. — 0:00 Thales: 624 – 546 BC: When he was asked, “What’s the most difficult thing in life?” His response was, “The most difficult thing in life Is to know yourself.” The easiest is to give advice.   0:16 At the top of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is: Self-Actualization from creativity, meaning, and purpose. 0:55 What makes a creative person more valuable? It’s their ability to help others find their meaning and purpose. 1:41 How do you help somebody know themselves? Your value is determined by the quality of the questions that you ask.   1:50 The questions that you ask demonstrate your knowledge, experience, confidence, and therefore your expertise.   2:00 Low versus High Value Questions. Quantitative, fact-based questions: What does it look like? When is it due? Who is the target market? What is the budget? These questions make you an order-taker. You establish yourself here as “hands for creative work.”   2:50 Qualitative questions (the higher value questions): How did you come up with this idea? Describe how this looks in your mind. How will you judge if this is successful? *Open-ended questions that invite the client to participate with you. Those questions also change the dynamic that you have with your client. 3:54 The high-value questions get to purpose; they cause people to be more reflective: If someone asks you to do something, ask them…Why is this important? Why do you believe this to be true? Beyond money, why did you exist? *These questions bring you back to your roots.   5:16 Ask the questions that drive towards purpose. This will get you to find the cause of the symptoms. *We ask questions to surface deeper meaning. *Core: Purpose/meaning = Like an onion; we need to peel back the layers.   5:54 What happens if you do? What does that look like? DISCOVERY: a framework of questions designed to surface deeper meaning  “This company exists to...in order to…” = PURPOSE   6:27 Are you asking these types of questions? Are you getting these types of answers? What do you think this is worth, and what would you pay to find out your purpose? — This is the Futur of Education— Disrupting the design education paradigm.   Want more?

Document and Show Your Creative Process— Here's How in 3 Minutes
 
02:48
Why is it important to show your process? Do you have a creative formula that is repeatable with predictable results or are you just showing the finished work? If you aren't showing your process and documenting it, you are leaving it up to the imagination of your client as to how you work. This creates an air of mystery about what they'll get and when. Mystery equals doubt. Doubt equals risk. Don't be risky. Document your process. When documenting your work, answer the question of what problem (ideally a business or marketing goal) did you solve? How did your creative solution answer the brief? Annotations -- 0:20 How to show your process (Client Brief, Wireframes, Concept Models, Research, End Product) 0:58 How does your design benefit the customer? 1:14 The first steps of making a website (User Profiles, UX Sketching, Visual Design Mockups & Wireframes). 1:48 How do clients decide who they are going to work with? 1:54 Clients choose the least risky option - Have creative recipe — The Futur is a startup, and we need your support!

Why Networking Doesn't Work
 
04:38
How can you get more clients by networking? Networking has some negative connotations and seems insincere. So how do you get more clients? How do you build a powerful network? Meet people and help them in a genuine way. Start with your classmate and grow to expand from there. Reciprocity- the practice of exchanging things with others for mutual benefit, especially privileges granted by one country or organization to another. Do something for someone without expecting anything in return. If you approach relationships this way, you build much stronger friendships that might benefit you in the long run.

Earlier this year, Gemma O'Brien came by the studio to put on one of her amazing hand lettering workshops. People of all ages and skill levels came out to hone their lettering. We hope to put on more of these workshops for people who live in the greater Los Angeles area. Gemma O'Brien: After completing a Bachelor of Design at the College of Fine Arts in Sydney, Gemma worked as an art director at Animal Logic, Fuel VFX and Toby and Pete before deciding to fly solo as a commercial illustrator in 2012. Her typographic work takes on a variety of forms, from calligraphic brushwork, illustrated letterforms and digital type to large scale hand-painted murals. Her clients include Adobe, Playboy Magazine, Nike, Adidas, Volcom Stone, Heineken, QANTAS, Heinz, Smirnoff and The New York Times. A number of her projects have been recognised by the New York The Type Directors Club with Awards of Typographic Excellence and in 2015 she was recognised as an ADC Young Gun. In her spare time she travels and draws puke puns on barf bags for the Spew Bag Challenge.
