Do You Consider Yourselves........

Oh, hell no. I'm a hack amateur at best.

I have had a few designs put onto jerseys, even had an amateur league in Canada pick a design of mine as their league logo. But I'm a hack.

Hard to say... I'd consider Mockba to be a professional designer. His logo is being used by a professional league.. that seem to qualify.

Myself, I'd say I am a professional designer, but not specific to sports-logos. My career is in design, web and graphic design. I've created several corporate logos that companies use, and I was paid for them fairly well.

same boat as Mockba, hack amateur. mainly cus I don't have the programs the big boys have(not to say I can't do logos that rival those that can be vectorized). i'm hoping to change that somewhere down the road, though.

i'm a production artist. i make large run production orders happen. i work fairly close with many designers. designers are responsible for getting the idea, look, and whatnot together to make the customer happy and look good. many times we production folks have to take what the designer makes and clean it up, make it work best for our many different types of equipment, and mass produce it.

technically, anything you get paid to do makes you a "professional" at it

That being said, I am a professional graphic designer. My business cards are listed that way. I have a Bachelor's Degree in graphic design. I have had 3 graphic design jobs since graduating college. I have only done one piece sports-related, and that was the logo for my floor hockey team.

I'm not a pro, but I've always had an interest in graphic design. I have done a couple designs that have been used professionally by small businesses, but for me it's more of a hobby.

I haven't had any formal training, but I'd like to be able to do some basic design in my work when I need to.

I work for a daily newspaper laying out and composing advertisements. I'm paid for what I do, in that aspect and only that aspect, I'm a professional.

I also do quite a bit of freelance work for a local fireworks company, so between the newspaper and fireworks...I'm the King of Disposable Media! :sleeping:

Speaking of that, I saw one of those "Coca-Cola cars" that you had a hand in designing while I was going to Carolina Place a few weeks ago.

And no, I'm probably not considered a "professional" graphic designer, even though I have been paid for designs.

I'd consider myself semi-pro. I charge for my services (when I don't know the customer at least), but I charge a pittance for my services compared to the big boys, and I haven't had any formal training.

Yes, I would consider myself a full-on professional. Spent four years at the Savannah College of Art and Design and graduated last August with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design. I worked as the Online Designer for a scuba diving magazine for two years during college. I also currently work freelance for Joe Bosack on occasion, as well as the firm that webdav works for, 45 Degrees North. I've designed a couple of corproate logos that are being used, but I'm still waiting to land my first sports logo.

I was going to school (2 semesters) at the Art Institutes International of Minnesota to get my bachelors in Graphic Design. Unfortunately, life happened, and right now I must work my job a bit longer before I continue working towards my career. I feel that I COULD be a good 'pro', once i got the handle on how to use Illustrator and Photoshop better. Drawing-wise, I can create...just no scanner to put it into Illustrator, where it would probably sit awhile anyway.

Right, now, I'd say I'm more of a writer. So, need some catchphrases, slogans, jingles or a neat little write-up? I can do that. :D
