Choosing the right projects

In many cases, as a 3D designer, you will be asked to create work on various concepts, but if you’re assigned a project to work on that you’re uncomfortable with, you should feel free to suggest an alternative way to tackle your assignment. In either case, there are several criteria you should consider. First, of course, your should feel comfortable with your skills and seeing the work through, the event, and the audience. If you do suggest an 3D approach that’s different from the one the project requires, try to stay as close as possible to the original concept. It is probably safe to assume that the person who asked you to work on the project thought the type of work required is suited to your style. For example, if you’re used to working on retail projects and you’re asked to produce work for an events project. you might say, “Well, I’m more of a hotel 3D designer ; I’m concerned with the long lasting feel of the materials in the environments I work on. I wouldn’t be credible working on fast paced events. That’s a project best suited for an experiential 3D designer.” This should allow the client to withdraw the offer gracefully.
