Go Media in Computer Arts #134

We are happy to announce that Go Media was featured in the latest issue of Computer Arts (#134 – April 2007). They ran a little feature on our vector packs and included a sampling of them on the CD that comes with the magazine. Click on the image to read the write up. Here is a quick rundown of what the editorial said about our vector packs:

“Tight deadlines are an unfortunate reality of commercial illustration. Clients rarely give you a comfortable amount of time to complete a project so it’s handy to be able to take a few shortcuts once in a while.

If you’re creating vector illustrations, one of the most laborious parts of the job can be finding good source images to trace or vectorise, so these ready-made vector images are a godsend. Go Media’s Vector Packs have been cleverly categorised into sets of commonly used design flourishes, such as halftone patterns, paint splats, and arrows, which means you can just grab what you need without having to trawl through masses of unsuitable images.”

There is also a special discount code offered by Computer Arts, but you’ll have to buy the issue to find out what that is :-)

    I agree with this article. In my own homework I can spend ages making a vector, finding the perfect source etc. Unfortunatley yes in the commercial world it’s not uncommon to be asked to create “amazing” artwork in ridiculous timescales, which if you’re inexperienced can be daunting.

    As a Junior designer my next step is to get hold of some of the vector packs form GoMedia and then add to that with my own over time. Hopefully when the manager comes a knocking I’ll have this set of vectors behind me to apply to the various works I’m asked to do.

    Als Junior Designer mein nächster Schritt ist zu halten von einigen der Vektor-Packs Form GoMedia bekommen und dann zugegeben, dass mit meiner eigenen Zeit. Hoffentlich, wenn der Manager kommt ein Klopfen werde ich diesen Satz von Vektoren hinter mir haben, um die verschiedenen Arbeiten, fragte ich tun werde zutreffen.
