>What literature should I read to get into graphic design?
The sidebar on the /gd/ wiki has plenty of book reccomendations.

>What programs do I need to get started?
-Vector
Adobe Illustrator
Corel Draw
Inkskape

-Bitmap
Adobe Photoshop
Gimp

-3d
Blender
Cinema4d

>Which program is the best for X?
It's usually subjective if you pick a program in each of the right categories above. Use vector programs if your making a logo/icon/illustraton, use bitmap programs if you're messing with a photo or stock image. Gimp, Inkskape, and Blender are free alternatives and have the same function as the paid programs but the paid programs tend to be used more in a professional enviroment.

>What font is used in this image?

/gd/'s opinions on GIMP
The_GIMP_icon_-_gnome.svg
What are your honest opinions on GIMP compared to Photoshop. As in how powerful really is GIMP compared to Photoshop?

Do we have any GIMP masters in here able to weigh in on GIMP's actual potential if one commits to learning it compared to photoshop?

What other jobs do Graphics Designers do other than designing logos?
Every wannabe designer talks about logos and shit all the time, but I feel like logo works only make up a very small slice of what actual professionals do.

So what can I expect as a graphics designer to do during the 95% of the time I'm not working on logos?

Font Request Thread

Request and share non-free typefaces and identification of typeface samples.

> Previous thread

>>418023

> Older threads

archived <dot> moe/gd/search/subject/Font%20Share/

> Font identification

Before you request, do your due diligence by running your font sample through a font identifier;

whatfontis <dot> com
fontsquirrel <dot> com/matcherator (be sure to enable the myfonts setting)
myfonts <dot> com/whatthefont

If you're not getting a clear read then put your sample in PS, separate the letters and colour it to be pure black on a white background.

> Font requests

First of all, check;

vk <dot> com/board178186634
graphicex <dot> com

> Uploading

catbox <dot> moe is great for uploading small-sized zips containing fonts, especially since it doesn't expire.

If somebody helps you then pay it forward!

Printing slightly off-white images
45511-xenogears-playstation-media
I'm printing some CD labels for retro burned games. A lot of the games, pic related, are scans of pure white, which often means they are technically slightly off-white in the scan. What would happen if I printed something slightly off-white onto white paper? Would it just use a very small amount of yellow ink where the white is yellowish?

Typographics & Other 90's Graphic Design Books
Typographics 2
Hello /gd/. Is anyone else on this board aware of Roger Walton's Typographics book series? They're these awesome design books from the 90's that are simply gorgeous. I have the second one and I'll provide some images. Recently I ordered the other 3 and I'll post scans of those once I receive them in a couple of days. Considering how slow this board is, I don't think it'll be a problem for you guys to wait a couple of days.

Anyways, I'd like to ask if you guys know of an online resource I can find more books like these (preferably scanned and for free lol). Maybe even a repository where I can find the names of similar books. Some simple suggestions would be fine too. Thanks!

Desktop User Interface Design
desktop
I've been using Linux for a while now and I want to start creating a custom theme for my desktop environment. That would include the headers and borders of windows, appearance of buttons, sliders, checkboxes, etc., the overall colour scheme, icons, and maybe even system sounds eventually, but I guess sounds are beyond the scope of this board. Pic related is what my system currently looks like. Any advice on how to design a good looking UI? I was thinking of doing something a little less "modern" looking, i.e. not a "material" design type of thing where everything is one solid flat colour. But at the same time I don't want it to be too visually overwhelming. I also don't want a clone of an existing OS's look, like Mac or Windows. So, /gd/, what would your Ideal UI design look like? Any tips or advice from an artistic perspective?

I'm not looking for a tutorial or help with how to actually implement this on a computer, if I were I'd go to /g/. Just purely from a graphic design/UI perspective, what should computers look (and feel) like?

mouth webm
How do I use Adobe After Effects to make a photo talk like in the webm I have attached?

I have tried saving the upper & lower lip layers separately in Photoshop, used After Effects where I placed them on top of the original image which I completely removed the mouth area leaving it transparent so I can make the inner mouth black and place teeth in there on a layer behind. I then experimented with the puppet tool, but no success like in the webm because when the separate lip layers move using the puppet tool I can see the edges where they've been cut and it looks weird. Other parts of the face don't move with it.

The tree animation in the webm was made using a plugin called Auto Lip Sync by Mamoworld, but I wanna be able to create this without a plugin so I can have more control.

Not only the lips need to open and close, but they must be able to close to create an "ooo" shape with slight parts of the cheeks moving like in the webm.

Need a bit of help here please -
New bike arrives in a few days, and I feel compelled to swap up a few items for different colours because.
What on earth colour/s go with vivid pearlescent purple and I'm not sure what to call it - chrome rainbow/oil slick?
Basically anything can be changed to any colour, or have whatever design/text-on-black, except for the tyres. Cables, grips, seat, decals (forks for example), pedals, nuts and bolts....
I just can't figure out what would go with this.
Yellow or gold were what I was thinking, but also thought that might be overdone over the years.
Could go full unicorn and choose a component, and roll a dice to choose the colour.
Any ideas appreciated.
Thanks all - I have no experience in this sort of thing - figure a few designers might be generous to dazzle me with their brilliance : )

this would get a title like

or something like that to accompany the thumbnail.

is this straight forward or is it meaningless?

also, youtube has weird things in their algorithm that they like more than other. parts of this are positioned so that the length of the video in the bottom right corner doesn't cover important parts of the thumbnail on mobile. text works better for engagement if it's at the top and some other nonsense rules.

basically, does this even make sense?

Colorized Font Creation
Screenshot 2022-07-29 165333
i'm trying to make a colorized OTF font for a game using FontCreator 13. When testing, it only shows up as black and white. What am I doing wrong? I'm new to making fonts, and just want to code my game '~' I have made full svg files of all the characters for my font, it's just a matter of making it a colorized OTF.
I'm considering just making two fonts, one of the outline and one of the inside. Then I can overlay them in game. But unfortunately if I do this then my bobby hill undef character won't work, which isnt really a huge deal to be fair. Any and all experiences are welcome, thanks!

I need some advice, /gd/: Editing wargaming miniatures to appear in combat.
8th_valhallan_armoured_regiment_on_the_advance__by_arkurion_de0744p-fullview
Fa/tg/uy here needing some advice.
Just for fun I have been wanting to take pictures of miniatures and then digitally edit them to appear as though they are in combat firing guns.
I just plan on taking this up as a little side-hobby.

I have GIMP installed and plan on using the PhotoGIMP addon:
>https://github.com/Diolinux/PhotoGIMP

I know that photoshopping miniatures to appear in combat requires more than filters and effects copy and pasted onwards.

Any advice is appreciated.

hey /gd/

I finished a interface the other day, it will simply control an intranet led interface by gyro sensor of the phone and a few buttons(socket.io). however I wanted it to be really minimalist and now I am happy with it but get comments like "oh it does the job but it looks cheap". so maybe anyone have a hint at a design I could do in css that would make it feel more worthy and maybe also more accessible? I thought about introducing elements of dark grey and such. thank you.

Font Laws in the U.S.
saul
Hey can anyone explain font laws in the U.S for a brainlet like me? I want to start my own brand and I've gotten some work done already, but I'm not sure if I can even upload my work because of the fonts I use. Could I modify the fonts in some way without getting sued? Sometimes I get free fonts from 1001Fonts, but am I free to use them 100% the way I want? What if I pay for a font? Can I use it in any way I want as long as I paid for it? Also I don't wanna credit font creators all the time, do I have to do it?

Trying to chose a drawing tablet and im not sure whether i need e.g. tilt and rotation. My understanding is that no matter if you have rotation support, you still need to manually change brush settings in your drawing software all the time, so is there really any point in having tilt functionality?

I'm 19 and have been trying to improve my skills and build a portfolio. But then my brother tells me about dalle 2. This ai can generate insane quality art pieces instantly. Is it over before it even began? Seriously, what the fuck should I do. A creative field is the only thing I'm interested in and good at. I'm actually worried about how this will affect the art industry as a whole. Am I scared over nothing? What's an art field that won't be fucked over by ai just yet?

Budget printing/sublimation

I've been doing album covers for a while and I find my work fruitful however I've really liked the idea of making sublimated shirts lately. Since I'm relatively new to the field of sublimation I was wondering if people out there know the best combination of materials to get to do this on the best possible budget. I'm sure first and foremost is to find a printer with shit drm or one that can get an easy chipless firmware modification but honestly where to start?!

I was wondering where do you get your free assets and stock photos.

Deviant art may have large library, but it has trashy licencing rules and it's saturated with guro hentai.

Steganography with photoshop
41799477_10155916515028613_3329962864134848512_n
So apparently if you adjust settings in photoshop on jpegs that have been edited a certain way, you can reveal hidden messages and images with almost a late 80's to mid 90's effect as you slide the temperature or tint sliders back and forth, or just have them glow like neon after adjusting the settings correctly.

I've only managed to figure one out, with a girl turning into a zombie, from a thin smile to a toothy grin and her eyes moved and looked at you.

Using various image forensics sites and apps I've been able to see some messages in bits and pieces but haven't been able to actually make them clear with photoshop.

Does anyone have any guidance or instructions on how this shit is done?

I think I found a cult that uses this method as part of a game of some sort, and to solicit prostitution, like this one I found on a Facebook profile cover photo, which advertises "Rape sex slaves".
The reason I would like to know how to do this is because I found my name in it and it was posted by the man 2 years before I ever met him and he has been stalking, harrassing and slandering me in an attempt to council me to suicide.
If I can figure this stuff out, I can get help.

I've also found many people hiding thier naughty parts or other people's naughty parts and the fact that they were actually sexually active in the photo before it was edited.

Apparently there is a way to reveal this stuff as a nearly transparent layer on top, like a watermark, and see the hidden picture or message.

How do?
