Design Portfolio Sets on Flickr

logo-design-set.pngBusy, busy busy!

It's a busy spring here, working on all sorts of design goodies for clients at MakaluMedia. Because of this, I've had limited time to write up detailed logo design articles, like the ones I've done for Red 66, BOWN and cgi Interactive.

In March, I finally bought a Flickr Pro account. Why did I wait so long? I'm loving the ability to create and manage sets of images — It's been well worth the $24.95/year.

I've wasted no time, creating several sets of design work. Sets are a great way to gather similar works in one location on Flickr. Here are links to the sets:


Created with Paul's flickrSLiDR.

Logo Design — A sampling of logos created over the past several years.

Icon Design — Several samples of Mac OS X and other icon design projects.

Web Design — Screenshots from mockups and final pages of web design work.

Print Design — A sampling of print design projects I've worked on.

T-Shirt Design — T-Shirt design samples, including the Espresso Powered line.

Sketchtoons — A comprehensive sampling of scanned sketchtoons.

Hopefully this little public service announcement will make it easier for readers and visitors to check out the work I love doing every single day. :-)

Great idea. I love the portability aspect of this. It's so easy to let people know about your work when placed on flickr.

One small issue. I read somewhere that flickr only accepts photographs. (This may not be the case anymore but apparently was about 6 months ago.) Just a word of warning for anyone who wants to base their entire portfolio on flickr.

I'll try to clarify if this is still the case.

Andrew,

Thanks! I really like keeping a collection on Flickr, also because other Flickr people can come across them. I've seen other designers use Flickr this way, which is where I got the idea.

As for image type � I just noticed a few weeks ago that in the Flickr uploader too they have an option for "image type" now, so I've been choosing "other" there.So i wonder of Flickr realizes people need space for all sorts of images (photos or otherwise) and lifted that restriction.

Be interesting to see if you find anything official on this.

I see that 'image type' option too now. I guess they gave in on that issue then. Will keep an eye out for any info it for you.

Thanks Andrew. Check out Flickr Uploader -- nice little tool with many of the more hidden options at Flickr available to use.
