Im a new Apple user. How do you find out whose making all the cool illustrations and animations featured in the App store articles and their other materials? I dont usually see credit anywhere
Working for a big corporation (I do) has a lot of advantages, but I often envy the freedom that small companies and freelancers have to post and share and generally engage with the design world at large.
I cannot even talk about my company. I am trained to say and do nothing on a regular basis
that also breaches contract tho, haha.
But so many people ignore it. I.e. https://andyrementer.com/Apple-Logos
I don't know... I was asked to take this down, lol but alas...
I would think you could use it as a benefit. Put a line on your website that say 'Work for Apple: Available on request'.
I am guessing most would be at first impressed, then intrigued, and it would get you at least an interview.
I think you should always charge more when you are not able to put it on your reel later. Other than the pleasure of the doing itself, it's just like doing bad work. If its not mutually beneficial, you must be compensated for that.
It does really make it difficult to advertise you're own services if you're not allowed to show things you've worked on. Clients often put trust in you if they can see you've worked on projects for other well known clients, and not being able to tell people that I think is pretty unfair
You're not allowed to mention you worked on it and they wont credit anyone except in select cases. But a lot of the time you can tell who did what because the voices are strong.
Some individual artists get away with sharing the work, others who are with an agency *cough* are asked to have it taken down. 😓
To be honest I get it from a lawyer POV, they don't want people advertising themselves as an "apple artist", a lot of companies like Disney are the same way. Imagine an artist claiming to be a DISNEY artist and then going to jail for something like murder, haha.
