>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?
>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?
Try these sites before posting a tread asking for fonts:
Let's take a moment to remember this badass motherfucker and his Photoshop skills Post what graphic tablet you're using and one thing you like / dislike about it Is brutalist graphic design the next thing? I don't know much about it but I personally prefer seeing this over any minimalist/corporate soulless designs. What do you think about it? honestly this unironically look much better than the current New Pride Flag Lied on an Interview about web designing...got the fucking job.
Copying templates from other websites .Actually learning Request and share non-free typefaces and identification of typeface samples.
Previous thread >>397954
> 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
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! So here it is:
https://www.behance.net/thewaldorfagency can someone turn mr babys smile upside down into a frown for me plz I'm developing an art review platform in which artists upload their art to receive criticism by other users. The "critics" select specific segments that contains a detailed review of said segment.
I included 2 of my current possible logos for roasting minimalism has meant the total death of creative graphic design, EVERYTHING looks the same now when it comes to logos, i get shit like removing the metallic sheen of the apple logo, but ffs, why are corporations like Firefox butchering iconic logos with disgusting oversimplification? Looking for some good free ebooks for Art Director. I need a good read, also I'm a poorfag who couldn't afford a book. How do I match fonts?
>Meme fonts like poppins or open sans or montserrat have badly matching x heights and if something matches it's very similarly looking
>Sometimes I want to mach 2 sans serifs and it's hell
>End with 3 fonts in some projects because I can't find any match to "display" stylized fonts
>I got way too many works with Roboto+roboto slab
Books are too vague usually. I need concise rules like checking x. I'm so pissed about this change and I'm not even that racist, it looks disgusting and is just tailor made for virtue signalling. It checks all the boxes for a modern graphic design:

Let see what you'll do so im wondering if there’s a good way to torrent photoshop (and/or similar things) or if there’s any decent free programs for image editing Who designs these awnings for delis all over the city?
>extremely low quality pictures of food
>food is not even appealing looking
>it is all clustered
>because of all the colors the awning fades easily
I don't get how they think this attract business, it has a bad vibe, this is one of the few examples of where "minimalism" would actually be better. So let me get this straight.
Photoshop does not allow you to paste an image in a layer it is copied from. guyse, i am 31 year old ''graphic designer''
how do i make portfolio? how many pieces considered enough?
is behance good enough or should i make a website? have like 3monhths time to make it, before i run out of savings
i have multimedia technologies degree Hello friends. I come bearing a gift. Today I show you an image that was made to help sell a product by providing information on one of the product's features. This product is a multicount sticker pack sold on Amazon. Out of a number of product images, this is just one.
Have you ever seen anything so pajeet? A work so underpaid, so underappreciated, that you begin to feel bad for the worker directly after you stop laughing at him? I can feel the poverty of the hands that made this. I can picture the headache in his head when he exported a low quality thumbnail sample. I can feel his aching back, sitting in a chair for 8 hours, as he searches Google for transparencies of water splashes. I can feel the strain in his eyes from sitting too close to his yellowing 2011 HP thrift store monitor as he pastes into new layers, the grey of Photoshop looking more and more like a piss stain on grey mattress sheets.
He clicks export, and despite the measly 15 dollars for the day's work, he still wishes to continue. To continue is to be absent from his wife at home, a far worse prospect to him than endless, worthless toil. Looking for images/videos/websites with graphic design like 1990s-early 2000s protestant Christianity. Basically poorly formatted websites with lots of comic sans, textured background, lots of CGI images of crosses/blue sky, angels etc. Hard to put a finger on this aesthetic. did quiet a bit of promos
send advice other than killing myself Hello , lately ive played the game "Critters for sale". I very much enjoyed it and was mesmerized by the animation and the art style.
I came here looking for help to understand how it works and a way to achieve the style of the game and to recreate it and further expand it.
So if theres anybody who knows hows it done please let me know.
If youre interested about the game surely buy it ("crack idc"). 1. Why is this board so dead?
2. Post your favorite personal digital graphic from 2000-2008ish. I’m talking about stuff you would have put in your forum signature, MySpace layout, livejournal blog, AIM icon, whatever What are your thoughts on pogs? I'm applying for a remote ux ui design job, they have interviewed me via googlemeet twice and then they waited 2 weeks before contacting me for another fucking interview, why the fuck are there so many interviews? The first 2 was basically identical just with different interviewers. Does this logo I made have SOVL? I made it in 5 minutes in Paint 3D. What makes them so fucking kino? In this fhread, we post our projects and ask if they have a soul. this is PERFEECT GRAPHIC DESING can you FEL IT the INPESCRIPAPBLE PULof it it COMPEELDS YUO this is my LIFES WROK RIHGTE HERE i am FINELY COMPLEETE A Post whatever youre working on at the moment and receive feedback
Ill start, a vector/photo collage inspired by death grips come up and get me lol Does anyone have any idea why Illustrator is exporting everything past the artboard?
i.e. if I have art that expands past the artboard but I want my PDF to only have the art that actually fits in the artboard how would I do that? Clicking "use artboards" when saving to PDF or exporting to PNG does not work, still shows the entirety of the art.
Any help is appreciated, thanks Hi recently getting into editing fan films and was wondering if anybody had and opinions on what editing programs to use or any decent laptops that are good for this kinda stuff. Thanks Should I buy a Samsung A72 guys? Need a new telephonic communications device, my Pixel is dying. How to achieve the "topographic" or grid (or any texture on extrusion or shadow) effect in PS?
I'm not even sure how it's called, as the topographic effect is a different thing.

what do you guys think about modern web design?
I'm trying to do some web freelancing and learn to do design but I think the excessive white space, huge fonts and s_ö_y-vector art looks like shit.
How do I learn to embrace or reject this type of design and make good looking websites?
Pic related is a pretty good example of what I mean I have this image here that I'm trying to work with. I'd like the 'outsides' of the image to be transparent, regardless of what I place on the bottom layer, as I'd like to use this framework to save me time where I can just merge, copy, and paste into other files.
Naturally, I could merge down and manually erase the outsides to create the transparency, but that's a lot of work for what I'm wanting to do.
Is this an impossible task, or am I just retarded? Does anyone have any experience creating 3D mockups for photoshop?
Been lately thinking about using Blender to create simple 3D renders and sell them as Photoshop mockups. Anyone has any experience with this? Is it worth it? If i use someone behance Art in a ad im making for a ICE CREAM company who will get sued me or the client
Im in the Caribbean so noone will "HAS" really seen the ad Why are project managers always retarded?
I worked plenty of webdev jobs and every single time the project managers are retarded women. They dont know how webdev works, what can and cannot be done, or even what is a graphic designer's and what is a developer's responsibility, they just send tasks to do with little to no thought.
And to top it off, they always have the most to say about a design despite having 0 qualifications or education in the field. Jesus christ i am seething.
God I miss being a freelance designer. When you have to worry about money or a future career while learning your mind jump to a million different things instead of perfecting one or two
>i started learning /3/ C4D 2 months ago became committed dugged deeper into this field & saw to really be good on this path i will need to Know Photoshop, After Effects, illustrator, & indesign , started learning those & my mind is all over the place & dont know what path to continue down
i want to get into motion design CG motion design For Advertising/commercial. How Deep do i have to go in on Photoshop, After Effects, illustrator, & indesign to be competent in the CG field ? What's the name of this style and how is it usually created? Just tracing or are there filters and tricks to achieve this?
Pointers for Affinity (P,D) and Procreate would be much appreciated. How can I learn to make a map like this? Can we all agree here that a lot of these logos are just plain garbage? No design sense at all and they just throw everything at the wall.
Pic related, this is a drop in an ocean of garbage vtuber logos. ...but then woke up and did something meaningful with their lives. I'll start. What is the best photoshop alternative in linux with modern UI, similar shortcuts or keybindings to Photoshop and works Offline.
I tried out Gimp and it really sucks, it's just counterproductive to use it.
Photopea is good but it's web based so I'm hesitant to rely on a web based app.
Krita - I didn't try it yet, but I heard it's more suited for drawing rather than image manipulation.
Inkspace - not alternative I want to paste text "NEWSFU" after the spinning stops. Center aligned and large, as its my logo, preferable in a pixel font.
How do I do this on a mac?
Im able to mac short videos with logos / headings using Finalcutpro but have no idea how to work with Gifs.
Thank you! I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but does anyone know of any tutorials that teach you how to make 3D videos geared specifically for UI, such as:
https://youtu.be/xbkDA7kPgYA what do you guys think about adobe subscription model
how do you manage to pay those high fees, do you even? That'll be 150$ thanks good sir I found this guy called Oscar Chichoni and I really like his style but I can't find anything like it. Wikipedia says it's like Art Deco reborn?? I'll put some more of his art. Reminds me of Warhammer 40k in a way. Everyone always wants to talk about the big tech pajeet art style but that's miles ahead of this garbage. Every goddamn pediatric physician, dentist, crematorium, juvenile detention facility, loony bin, anything with 'family' in the name, and any other Zionist corporate endeavors have these goddamn blue and green blob people as their logo. Every single time, without fail, not even any variation in color. I hate this damn shit. ...giving full throttle to the darkest corners of the imagination. This is a general dedicated to the design of flags, also known as vexillography.

There seem to be several flag threads up at the moment, so lets give this a go and see if there is enough interest for a full time general I have tried pretty much everything(drop shadow, stroke path, grow, etc.) but the corners and edges still look like shit. Any help would be appreciated. Developer here.
Learn what CSS can and can't do, you utter retards. How was this image created? Think it was just photoshop? Or is there some particular program this works well for. Looking to create something like this but I'm not extremely skilled with graphic design. Any pointers on a program or a specific tool I might use for it? Yes there's an Vexillology thread already, but that is general flag design. This is a thread where the job is to redesign all of the US state flags. Why? Because the vast majority are trash, and even the best can be made better.
1) No Seals or Coats of Arms
2) No Text
3) No tiny details
4) Minimize color variety to standard colors
5) The flag should mean something / represent something
6) Make it really good or really bad, the only sin is to be boring. How do you get noticed by agencies to get work?
I’m working on a portofolio and growing my instagram but I don’t have any commercial work to show (you need experience to get experience loop)

I have an xp pen artist pro 12 tablet and was looking for some digital art programs
I tried downloading a demo version of open canvas 6 or 7 but it was all in Japanese so I was unable to test the program and learn it's ins and outs
so my question is do any of you know of an english demo or if you have experience with open canvas 6/7 is it user friendly for a beginner with very little understanding of computers?
thank you I got most of it done, but I can't find a way to paint those black stripes blue like the rest of the sweater. Any hints? I'm using Multiply for everything except white.
(I looked for a general photoshop advice thread but couldn't find one, sorry if I should be posting somewhere else) Why be a maker if you can do Sales and Marketing? i don't want to waste time on art schools so what are some good resources that help you learn graphic design in decent way? sticky isn't very helpful to get started for me
pic not related I'm trying to do a contour cut in Flexi, but it keeps wanting to cut the 1st boarder line around the text. How can I tell it not to cut this?

i put 18 hour on it i know its uglier than your 3 minute sketch huhu Its been hot out...to say the least.
Anyone able to remake this meme where instead SpongeBob is outdoors in the heat/desert and it says "ight, imma head back inside"?
I dont have access to my desktop atm. Don't care who makes it. I just feel its something that needs to exist. Graphic Design sucks ass. This job is dead, it's complete and utter shit. It doesn't pay that well, you put a lot of yourself into your work and nobody cares, nobody understand a 100th of the rules of design - be it brand design, UI, UX, motion... - yet everybody has a word about it. Do I have a word on a product manager user stories? On some bland marketing wording? On a dev code? No, because I do my fucking job and I let others do theirs.
Everybody wants the same overused bullshit. Benchmarks have killed good design. Instead of trying to stand out or come up with good ideas, product and marketing teams just do a benchmark, aka "let's do a mixed bag of everything our competitors are doing without adding anything to it". And then every company eats each other shit and everything seems incredibly uniform. Congrats! You didn't take any risk.
Maybe I'm wrong when I say it doesn't pay that well. Actually, all kind of wanking larpers have joined the ranks of "designers" (as if we were a community. Fuck off!) and made it their lifestyle, talking about design this, UX that, wearing their little designer onions uniform but being actually completely unable to get the job done.
Yet, some of those cunts might end up being your manager because of their superior social skills, making your job even harder because they don't get shit about it but have to justify their position.
Graphic Design is a fucking joke. I hate this job. What's this style called? Probably a shot in the dark but is there any way I could make my own version of this picture? I'd just want to just how the people look a little bit and alter the background. I have zero GD experience and I'm kinda desperate are there any other graphic design or typography communities you fellers frequent? I want the album to be called Geriatric Sounds and The Beach Boys are feeding elderly people, thx b what can /gd/ do to stop this shit? or keep giving in because $? help stop the stage 4 cancer. so cute !
https://rumble.com/vid7mr-sweet-funny-babies-laughing.html?mref=mrx49&mc=36v97 hello, /gd/
first time here, i hope it's okay to make this thread.
i'm an undergrad and i have to make a prerecorded presentation for one of my classes. it's a five minute powerpoint presentation, but the kicker is that the lecturer wants us to record video of us presenting and have it in the corner of the presentation.
i have never done this before and don't know where to start.
i have at my disposal a laptop with a camera, a tablet and a phone. i have powerpoint, and would prefer to spend no money on any software so if you suggest something please take into consideration that it has to be free or pirateable.
how do i go about doing this? i was thinking of recording the powerpoint and recording a seperate video of my talking and then overlaying them somehow, but i don't know how my computer would go screen recording that process.
thanks in advance I'm looking for help with this program. I have a few images I'd like to meme, but I'm not too familiar with the program. I've watched a few videos and derped around with it myself, but I haven't gotten to the expertise I'm wanting. Does any of you anons work with this program or know of any links to help? What would you call this kind of aesthetic? post designs and pics based off the style of the hottest memes zoomers post on reddit Any tutorials online on how to design the aesthetics of these sleek 2000’s cyber whatever skins for Winamp in like photoshop and whatever other program I need? Tldr: How can we leave a good legacy through graphic design?
Public domain image; the website Pexels is great! The Lumii app (free version) helped me build all the edits.
What I want to discuss here is how to use graphic design as a force for good. I want my life to leave something behind, and that's guaranteed, but it takes effort to build a positive legacy. This is part of why I'm not in marketing; I like graphic design, but don't trust the morality of modern advertising.
So what do you think, of this image in particular, and this idea in general? how do I make something like that with my webcam
https://youtu.be/m0yyTShyJXQ How important is equity-focused design? what are some good book covers? regardless of content or text Stupid questions thread / Questions that don't deserve their own thread
I'm trying to blur the eyes/nose on a movie in after effects. Tracked motion, applied to null object, using tracking info to drive an adjustment layer on top of eyes/nose. Due to lighting and movement, tracked movement is not precise enough, so I'm tweaking the shape and position to follow the face's perspective/position changes. I've activated keyframes on Mask Path, Mask Opacity (for when blur is not needed) and Position, see pic related.
I'm scrolling trough the video and adapting the mask's shape/position as needed, 30 seconds of footage in, I preview my work and to my surprise the mask has changed shape from what I originally set it as, and basically all my work carefully shaping the mask to the subjects face is gone. It's close to what I shaped it, but different enough to fuck me up. What am I doing wrong? What else do I need to keyframe so I actively lock the masks shape/size as desired?
tl;dr how do I lock an adjustment layer's mask's shape/size per keyframe? I made my own currency, but I am poor af so I use free photo editing platforms all the time. This is the result GUYS DO YOU HAVE PATREON?
I HAVE ONE, www.patreon com/andresloquesea
DO YOU KNOW SOME OTHER WEB TO MONETIZE DESIGN WORK? I'm an idiot, can somebody please tell me what font is used for this sled? Does anyone have a CGPeers account, and can I get an invite?
Thanks in advance You are building a graphic design reference library, right? Best place to find linework like pic related for free? Most of the free sites have a limited supply of this specific art style and I know of no sites I can pirate it from. back then we had a thread about it but i don't remember finding a definitive answer. what's the verdict? post examples of Japanese people using the english language in strange ways for graphic design. Not “engrish” per se just weird combinations of words has anyone here used carrd? https://www.patreon.com/anatudor I have a ton of ideas that will make us succeed. Does anyone recognize this logo? Imagine you have a client with unlimited budget and you opt for using a neo grotesque (or any other category for that matter. im starting to feel like the typeface market is oversaturated). What font do you pick out of the dozens of good options out there? Obviously you gotta first take into account shit like budget and x-height and spacing and wether its gonna be used for long text or display, but i feel like theres so many options that even after narrowing it down theres still too many to choose.
The more I look at neogrotesques the more they all start feeling like i could pick whichever and it wouldnt matter. Especially if its for display since readability at small sizes is irrelevant. Like, for instance, if i wanted to make a website UI, i can think of 10 fonts that can all get the job done. Even defaulting to the devices system font gets the job done well.
What, then? Is it just subjective preference? Do you go for the cheapest option? Or the least popular to be ~different~? The only objective metric i can think of is the character set if youre planning to display russian or vietnamese or some weird shit, but most of the good fonts support those characters anyway. >Be me

And these are your allies. I'm less racist and I say the n-word. What software should I use to make pixel art like this bros? It looks so good Can anyone point me to the specifically-named style/filter used on each player in this montage - or explain the photoshop process to produce a similar effect. Can see some kinda grungey brushing work on the blends between players help explain spatial relationship betwen line and shapes and size on paper that helps the image looks correct and then how do you acquire colocation to make the picture;
like how image length becomes bigger nearby, or shorter based on its foreshortening. the exact measures needed to portray the figure/subject When I studied graphic design they told me that a well designed logo is simple and not too colourful.
Yet power rangers has logos that look like this.
Explain this shit to me? How do i get into UI and UX design? how do i start learning it?

Why cant we have stuff like this on our streets?
Where can i learn it online?

>skeuomorphism good What's your opinion on Japanese Prefecture flags? I'm working on a game engine for lower end systems and I'm having trouble picking which colors should be available. The maximum colors I can have is 256 and I want to have the most useful ones. I have two sets of colors that are good candidates.
The top two are the same colors, just arranged differently. The bottom two are the same colors as each other too just arranged differently.
As an artist which set would you prefer to use for general purposes? I am looking to get in to graphic design, well web design to be specific and I like to research the topics of my interests to death.
What are your must read resources specifically for web, that are not mentioned in the recommended section in wiki?
I prefer books but any relevant media will do. Typefaces/fonts that irritate you more than they should Well I understand these fuckers can't draw but why are they stupid?
Seriously germans are really stupid, they don't even research, lazy fuckers.
