    Many of us go to a designer for our forum skins or other graphics for our forum; in your opinion, who is the most reputable graphic designer and why do you think they are? Also, rate their service and professionalism.

    Personally, I think Setsou Design has a nice reputation. We have competitive prices and our graphics are pretty darn quality filled.

    I would also say vB Image Works is great, as is Jacquii Designs, Transverse Styles, Kalina Web Design and Themes By Design!

    I would rate all of them 9/10. However, Kalina would have to get the 10! Colleen is great with customers and her designs are very eye popping. Plus, it's only a matter of days if not hours that she'll complete your request.

    I'm not knocking the designers we have on this forum (really, they're great!) but do you know of any others Tom?

    I know of many others, but the ones mentioned in the first post are my personal preference.

    If you have not been listed in the first post, you are still great, you are just not one I'd use.

    :( Well be that way.

    lol

    I have a pretty good rep in the vB world for designing simple but stylish vBulletin themes and styles. My prices are low and my turn-around time is good.

    If there's something I can't do, I usually recommend miner at minerskinz.com. He's an excellent designer.

    Peg, I completely forgot about Themes By Design, I most certainly did. And, I'm not even being a brown noser- I recommended you to some one, remember? :P

    Also, MinerSkinz is nice- their themes are quite sleek and have the clean look.

    Shelley (of http://vBImageWorks.com and soon to be http://vBSmiley.com) is an absolute amazing designer. Not only designer but illustrator and stylist.

    One great thing about the world wide web - there's is plenty of room to support hundreds and even thousands of graphic artists. Most of whom we really don't know within the vBulletin or Admin community.

    I know of quite a few amazing graphic designers, a few:

    Fabio Sasso - Fabio Sasso Personal Website - owner of abduzeedo
    Chris Spooner - Blog.SpoonGraphics
    Leslie Tane - Leslie Tane Design | Graphic Design Western Massachusetts | Print Design | Web Site Design
    Elliot J Stocks - Elliot Jay Stocks ยป Home

    thats just to name a few that push me to keep trying to come remotely close to their professionalism.

    As far as forum designers, I think just about all of them have traits I enjoy.
    I still think Nicholas and Forumskin are the best in terms of designs, but I do enjoy quite a few designers, including the guys at forummonkeys

    I think its well know that Shelley and myself do not see eye to eye, however, I have to agree with Jacquii here, she is good at what she does.

    Well Paul - vB.org Administration has had a very special way of alienating certain Members of its Community = me included. So it's not surprising that those who have been alienated do not often look upon the Staff with glowing love in their eyes, in preparation to offer some great ass-kissing jesture...

    But yeah - Shelley is one of the most creative designers I know. She tells it like it is which is one of the reasons she's respected throughout the vB community. I greatly admire her style work and think she is a wonderful person to know. Her dedication and sharing within the vBulletin Community is unrivaled.

    Jacquii.

    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I thought Colleen stopped taking on custom work?

    The last job posted on her site is from April 2008.

    I also inquired about some design work a couple of months ago and have not received a response.
