>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:
http://www.identifont.com/identify.html it's here bros
why is it so good? If I have multiple pages of a comic saved as separate images, how can I take them and combine them into one image file like pic related? hey guys, I designed a logo for my band, and /mu/ kinda liked it. what are your guys’ thoughts? So basically I spent the whole night trying to figure out a way to take something like pic elated, on a perfectly black background and get it to work the same way it behaves then you set it to SCREEN blend mode.
How in the fuck do you do this? Or rather how do I do this WITHOUT FRINGING such that you can use the stuff on lighter stuff below it?
(Its not a flare in my case but same principle, but I just need a .PNG with transparency since somebody else without photoshop will be using the finished file) Did I waste my life?,
I'm very technical able to execute when giving clear direction, but I'm not creative the best I do is take and example here another the and somewhat try to present something decent
But I see my fellows knock shit out right out their heads. have I wasted my life?
How do I atleast salvage something from on the looser that I think I am Please do your best in defeating this ugly fucking art style, PLEASE. I don't know why it's so popular. >be a graphic designer for 3 years (professionally) and 4.5 years (non-professionally)
>Suck at art, still don't know how to do digital art. Don't have the equipments either
How long am I gonna get away with this? I work in the educational services sector and make just under 50k. Part of my work involves graphic design and video/audio editing.
After reading though this board, I see that there's a lot of dumb, inane shit ideas and opinions here about graphic design, so I'm happy to answer whatever questions on graphic design and work, based on my experiences.
Also, I'll stick around for any questions and tips on illustrator/photoshop/after effects/indesign and other tools (software, physical, print). 4chan for the love of god, please don’t go down the same fucking logo route trying to verbally quantify design quality that is at least on par with https://mobile.twitter.com/namgoreng
basically like 10k retweets and such for every image, or visual posts, or of equivalent sales.
basically a certain quality are always maintained, so one should probably Deliver a certain amount so...how would you translate (projected) numbers into quality usually? Post some of the stuff you guys make in your free time or something. stupid questions thread/questions that don't deserve their own thread

font request >>429862
old >>409852 You better get a real career before it's too late, you do not want to end up a 40 year old "graphic designer" I'm looking for a generator you can upload a picture to and it make pixel art. But i want to be able to set it to say 30x15 and limit it to a certain amount of colours, say 6 colours.
I want to put in pictures of landscapes or portraits or even famous paintings and make wooden pixel art from then from 1"x1" blocks of wood.
Do you know if any such generator? https://openai.com/dall-e-2/
DALL-E 2 is a new ML art generator that can actually create hyper specific variations of images based on natural language prompts.
Seems like this is the end of needing to subcontract to Fiverr to meet deadlines. Soon, they're coming for the actual designers too. How are we not Magicians

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.

If somebody helps you then pay it forward! cant post in 3dcg so here i am
basically if i wanna win like some, six figure salary job yearly at least doing concept art stuff what should i design and put on my protofolio and how should i present my protofolio and which company is usually paying that big? I’m doing a project, what font is this, and what are some other good videogame fonts? From graphic design perspective how do you make sure your one single JPG, or billboard or poster or whatever landscape space of image
will gather maybe like 30 thousand people to like it?
how do you derive the material, contents and value of the thing to achive the target sales, like as expected by the company or customer perhaps... As winter thaws and a suspicious lack of a kerning emote becomes noticeable it is once again the best time to share our 4chan related designs, stock up on Kernings, and make hot opinions on various /gd/ adjacent things.
It's of course also once again time for the team poll. You can find that here:
It'll run from now until at least April 14th, perhaps longer. share your holy grail of assets. i'm currently looking for duct tape/tape texture. going to leave some blkmarket stuff here:
https://we. tl/t-O1BUAoFJYr How do these photos work? Can they be made with photoshop? Easiest way to enhance a basic sketch like this? I have to make like 100 of these and they don't have to be good. Is there a tool/filter for quick and dirty autoshading/autocoloring or other kind of easy enhancement? Lets say that I grab random images from google search and remove watermark using the clone tool if necessary. Lets say that I download random stuff from freepik without giving them the credits later on in the caption. Lets say I use fonts downloaded from shady websites instead of paying for the envato elements subscription.
How will ""they"" know whether I pirated them or not? Will they literally break into my door and ask for my shutterstock/freepik premium/envato elements account?
Is it really that easy to "steal" stuff or I am under the wrong impression and they have other ways to catch me.
Definitely given that I am not working for any worldwide famous stuff >Go to school for graphic design
>Pay around 100 dollars a month for lessons
>Most things are simple to understand

>Realise why most adobe products are awful and can be easily replaced by anything much cheaper
I swear to god Premiere Pro is so bad and the only thing that I learned from it is that DaVinci Resolve is way better and simpler to understand. Can anyone edit the earned hours of payslips? Or altogether alter xero payslips and reduce earnings?
Or - do any xero payslip generators/templates exist?
Willing to pay. I had an idea to create some artworks promoting right wing ideas. Nothing too extreme. I've made myself this poster pic related.
I would be pleased if you helped me out on that one. sorry if this is the wrong place, never posted here before
probably pretty cringe but i got some cards made in this style, obviously with my details and my workplace's information. my boss says it looks good but it needs to company logo on it. the thing is, the company logo is effectively the pornhub logo but with our name and colors. how can i incorporate that into the design? i know that paul allen's has the logo on the back, but thats a much fancier logo than ours.
and on a scale of 1-10 how autistic does this make me? I'm an absolute retard with computers and cannot for the life of me figure out how to remove the white from this picture so I can put the picture on top of other images. Can anyone here remove the white from this image for me? Like the gray checkerboard thingy? Again, I'm an idiot and can't do it myself. y2k thread?
the designers republic is cool How to know if your design/content will make the big buck? like maybe from publisher, advertiser's perspective, how to know THE succesful material, before youtube views and subcounts??? can you make 6 fig graphic design work? how should your portofolio look or be ? I want to hire someone to draw my concept art for my business shirts/cards
For tree looping business. Need a logo of a redwood tree and a cartoon muscly shirtless man chopping off the tree with a chainsaw size would be roughly 3x8cm with the man in a 1/10 ratio to the tree For the art I want a similar picture but from a top view with a man in the foreground holding a chainsaw by his side while the top of the tree falls to streets below.
Will pay above average for above average work, leave some of your work below so we can start talking who the fuck approved this? just started new job at a firm in a small design department creating sports uniforms. all the designers are using adobe apps on PCs. it's my first exposure to a PC with Windows - only ever had macs. I'm fine with finding my way around but even though the PCs are well specced up (mine is i9, 32GB with 8GB GPU) they seem laggy and unable to cope with large files. the other guys just shrug and say it happens - IT just blame the file sizes. never had this happen to me so frequently on a mac - should I grumble to my manager in the hope of getting a mac or is there something I should know about how to get my apps working more reliably on Windows? Mainly just Illustrator, Photshops and little InDesign Why was it successful?
What made it work so well? I love this 1950s watercolory style lately. I mix it with some stark newsprinted graphics for a nice effect in cover pics. I want something that does picrel, or creates a 2d gradient. Hey y'all, I didn't know where else to post this so fuck it:
My company delivers wholesale and we have a problem with printing our product labels. No matter what margins or page layout I set, and I have the right drivers, it always messes up the printing (refer to image). We use a sato m84pro and microsoft word, which worked flawlessly on our last laptop but we lost the preset.
Any help would be appreciated. I hope this is the right place for this. I am looking to learn photoshop and video editing. Are there any sites that have raw footage/materials for me to edit Hello /gd/ I was wondering if you could assist me or give me some advice on how to do video edits like the ones in this video
I’m aware that I can just learn how to edit from YouTube videos and I intend to do that, but I’m a total beginner when it comes to editing so I was wondering how you can get those kinds of edits like the ferry and the sounds effects and stuff. Is it done in after effects or like do I need assets and if I need assets where would I get ones like in the video? do any of you guys draw, like regular normal drawing? post your drawing? what's up GDs free Larry Hoover Why does the tech industry love to use fat people to represent their products? What is this dotty effect seen on a lot of 90s/2000's CGI (mostly)? does it have a name / how do I create this effect, it just looks very nice on my eyes I submitted my energy drink concepts to cellucor Need help finding sets like the one pictured so i can make my own. any help is appreciated. checked adobe stock and having a hard time navigating all of it. looking for cheap/free open source animation tools that can interpolate positions
so far i found enve, anime effects, tahoma but i need simpler UI
any ideas are there any free cheep libre open source tools i can use to make gifs like this but with codes. gifs and not some apps I want to create a blazon for a (mmo)rpg game I'm playing and came here for inspo and tips. Can you help me? It would be better if could look good on any color but I was thinking in wearing a red and yellow armor therefore though about a green blazon but I'm not sure
Was thinking about some necromancy stuff, dragons, swords and skulls or a vindicative God thing 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:
I know that photoshopping miniatures to appear in combat requires more than filters and effects copy and pasted onwards.
Any advice is appreciated.
There is more stuff from this DA to hopefully show the kind of editing I am interested. Where to find some art tutorial that is on par to this especially the color, rendering(of the lineart and stuffs) and the overall finish of it trying to catch a big crowd like the artist of picrel so i guess i just have to produce similar caliber of a content like him and not an exact copy but then how do i know if my content is good enough i dont want to just shitpost randomly like some internet junkie
doesnt the big ad firms know exactly the right way to do things The comic sans of of 20s.
>I'd rather have a client branding with times new roman hey bros, dont want to sound too dumb here, but how could i do something like these album covers? i'm new to these things so i would like some tips
https://youtu.be/wk2_zphCSQA My artwork is created with gimp on an acer aspire e17. When I open up the files on my iphone (in a browser), they are way darker.
What am I supposed to do so that the color stays similar? Any sites that can do this? Preferably around A3 size. I don't want to cut off too much from the sides How many fonts do you currently have installed?
(or have rights to, or downloaded) Any inspiring pics are welcome Im pretty new to graphic design, and I made this shit on my phone I need to hear your opinions guys OH MY GAHD REMEMBAH DA NINETEES!??!?1 IT WAZ SO QUIRKY AND WEACKY I LOVE THE BRIGHT FLASHY COLORS AND NEON NICKELOADEEAN SLIME SEGA GENESIS HOLY CRAP SO QUIRKY AND RELATEABLE Redesign this from the ground up. What would you use? Corporate sanitization, and minimalism, or embrace the retards? Maybe a mix of both, or just minimalist Yotsuba? I'd appreciate feedback, I'm relatively new to making logos and vector art in general, but I'm somewhat pleased with how it came out.
The company's "flavor text" or "fluff lore" or whatever you want to call it is that it's a bunch of impy devils making the toys in a workshop by taking measurements and making molds off wacky creatures they capture and then release, and they make and sell them to corrupt humanity.
I've not gotten around to making the concept art of what they look like yet, but I'm going for these kind of latex-humanoids of a single color and a slightly unsettling smug smile as the mascots. Different body types, etc, but I thought having them be mostly single-color creatures would be a great idea if I want to incorporate them into the website's design. (and add some cute animations eventually, hell, maybe even an ad with them doing cute things)
I wanted them to have an otherworldly, slightly sinister presence but drowned out by bubbly personality and smug cuteness.
Anyway, with the flavor out of the way here's a vectorized logo that I really would like to get some critique on because I'm awfully new to logo design and I'd like suggestions and advice on making them look better. The kind of advice you get with experience or in art school, you know?
Thanks in advance /gd/ i made myself look like hugo strange how did i do? Got permabanned from vk for some reason, I think I tried to make a new account when I already had an old one. Anyway now my number is blocked and google voice numbers don't work for vk, any tips? I've checked the catalogue and can't find anything, so my question is, how do you acheive the pixel shift seen in picrel?
I'll comment with my attempt. I just want to see some cool Apus and frogs. First time posting on graphic design board Hello there.
I would like to make a petrification effect on After Effects. Vid related is my "proof of concept".
Basically, I'd like to make the person start to move slower and slower, and then make the last 2-3 moves abrupt, until they completely stop.
How would you make this in After Effects? I'd add particle effects and all that jazz later, but I want to know the best initial approach. I can make a decent petrification effect in Photoshop, but I can't do 3D modeling.
Also, any other ideas on how to make it are welcome. And any examples are welcome too, of course.
Let's begin! My parents asked me if I can make them some graphics for their car wash.
I've made a few for Upwork but never actually gotten them printed myself. Where would I go to get it done on the right materials and everything?
Pic completely unrelated. can animation be less painful?
tried rwpaint, rwcursor editor, anituner, galeportables stuff...
my workflows are mostly draw-move-save but lots of software are not very fun to "move" things around for me.
any suggestions? Is there an .svg or bitmap of this new logo anywhere? I believe we saw it for the first time yesterday on the new Hwasong-17. I haven't seen it from a proper angle though, only at odd angles in photos of the rocket. I find it shockingly post-modern coming from the DPRNK.
>Let's critique this new logo Can anybody identify this font? I'm looking for Industrial art, somewhat similar to mine (see the image). Maybe you guys know some artists? What are some examples of very current trends in gd that will become cheesy and dated in an instant once something newer arrives?
Pic related screams late 90s obviously. Anything like this from the early 2020s? very new to graphic design
made this shit in photoshop and liked the aggressiveness of the colors
are there any other color combinations that achieve this visual vomit? What does /gd/ think of canva?
Graphic designers seethe cause it requires zero effort compared to their months/years of hustling.
I seethe because it creates terrible designers who have zero graphic design sense or knowledge outside of the pre-made canva templates (which they cannot even contextualize properly and just copy-paste stuff). Also canva is pretty restrictive if you actually know how to design.
Will this kill graphic design jobs? Is it the github copilot equivalent of graphic design? Is turbulent flow a fractal equation? Is there a way to write the Navier-Stokes equations that way?
D = log N/log S
iIf you simplify any one of the seven equations you could get paid a million dollars, it seems like it could be re-written and simplified as a fractal, but that would have to be someone who knows how to write their convective forms and translate it to basically code i guess. I cant do any of those things, but im good enough at math to see it is possible what courses should i start taking if i want to land an art director/creative director gig? i have limited brain power so they said i should focus a little Hey Guys,
im trying to make a Logo and i kinda know how it should look like but i am not very creative and i am kinda dumb concerning Programms like Gimp or PS
Could anyone please realize this Logo ? Ya sozdala luchshuu kartinu v mire Why is collage work not respected?
It still takes a good eye and skill, and the result ends up looking better than if you just drew, painted or staged it.
I get i'm maybe coping, but it feels like people are gatekeeping art so they feel better about themselves any-me-tion software recommendation please??
gottta be small, libre, and easy.
right now my favorite is, from rw-designer; while though not as amazing as opentoonz, or adobe, or pencil2d, it is smaller, faster, and simpler and also read pressure detection just perfectly,
... but it still is abit too big, and writes frame in miliseconds than "fps"
idk, share me more. tx looking for simple but robust, portable, lightweight animation tool like http://www.rw-designer.com/image-editor
also uses fps than milisecond, jiffies kind of things,... also no idea why am i having so much pressure detection problem with pencil 2d???
any suggestion? How does it feel to have a career that even a 10th grader is capable of doing? I know this is a graphics design page but there has to be self taught UX people here. I've been teaching myself Figma for a while now and I've gotten decent at it and wanted to create a portfolio. It has your modern zoomer designs and animations for desktop and mobile uses that follow similar to Material Design. I'm wondering, as entry level UX designer, what do a lot of employers look for? How much did you guys start off making and whats a good starting salary for something like this? Looking for a specific sort of program, it may or may not exist. Basically, I want to write a comic script page by page, laying out frames and writing in notes. It's not the final comic, I don't plan on spending a bunch of time on each page. I'm trying to take a script I have done in wordpad and put it into a comic-like format (i.e. positioning panels and images). Any programs for this? I could do it in Krita but what I'm looking for is a program where I can shift from page to page without opening a new tab or turning layer groups on and off. Sorry if I'm incoherent, nootropics just started kicking in and I'm not used to them yet. pic unrelated Does anyone have any robust/full-fletched UI Kits for Figma? I'm talking Untitled UI or The Design Encyclopedia or similar? Why does graphic design have its own (very slow) board while there's still no place on the site to discuss product/industrial design, interior design, furniture design, or even architecture?
Just change it from /gd/ - Graphic Design to /da/ - Design & Architecture already. This is like if /his/ was restricted to discussing French history and discussion of any other history wasn't given a board. Can we discuss anything self-referential? I'm not trolling? I don't want to do a college about it, but I wanna study graphic design because it seems really helpful if you deal with visual arts related things.
Anybody could recommend me some courses that are worth the investment? I've already downloaded some books and I intend to study UX, but I want videos as well. eth devs have too much money Is there a torrent page dedicated to pirating graphics and vectors like there is for music and VSTs? I am designing a board game and would love to use stuff like on the picture Quick question, will delete thread afterwards
Will i get copyright striked or am i in the clear
It is for a clothing brand in the same luxury fashion branch Anyone selling their t-shirt designs via etsy? I'm looking to sell my own by using a pod service and selling via etsy. Why does nothing I make in Photoshop look this good? given animation and interactive media in graphic design, what sort of portofolio usually make six digit salary or basically is considered hirable for many, lucrative jobs? I need this kind of bubble font but it needs to be more readable,
I'd looked around for bubble fonts and for cloudy fonts but can't find any.
Really the only part that's really unreadable is the A which looks like shit and makes my design unreadable at a glance. such a degrade from the original mw2 logo.

No good pic on this PC. It's like a perspective ring thingy that doesn't look quite right. What do you all think? How do agencies get paid MILLIONS of dollars to make a logo? Is it legit? Is it a cover for something else? Do they get these contracts just because they pay someone in the client’s company a bribe under the table using the funds they earned from the project? This sounds bizarre and the only ones being paid millions are big name agencies who aren’t any better than designers online Does someone know a similar font to the red one, for commercial use Newb at graphic design, did this just for fun and as a learning experience

I hope this design is decent but it is pretty generic anyways why are graphic designers on youtube so ugly? they have bad haircuts, ugly t-shirts and some have an ugly face too.
Isn't design supposed to be beautiful? then how can I trust people who are so ugly giving me advice? Man, the new Sonic logo sure took a strange direction for the rebrand. Hey guys, do any of you have like a personal identity you use to advertise yourself as a designer? Like a name, logo, etc? I'm working on it at the moment and I'm kind of stuck on thinking what kind of image I want to project. Any help or tips or anything would be nice, also show yours if you want Doing some funky stuff on the HUD of Devil May Cry 3. For those who play the game, this is the Style icon for the Doppelganger Style.
I think it's pretty obvious I did the top one first, being the more rounder iteration. Basically went with the Uroborus symbolism. The spheres there can't be moved so I drew the two dragons separately. The heads started off slightly different, but I added the most differences on the smaller details of their bodies and the wings.
Once finished, I kinda thought it might look interested rotated and slightly skewed sorta like on the Sonic Adventure 2 logo and so I distorted the shit out of it, so it does look a bit odd here and there but.
As a HUD element that will stay on the top left hand of the screen only when the Doppelganger Style is picked, either one looks cool, but what do you guys think? Does anyone here know how to make scanned graphics be... "smother"? I mean, for example, fix the background into one white color instead of having it like this? it's very AESTHETIC and EVROPEAN, and i'm too much of a poorfag to afford it Do any of you know this program? https://osdn.net/projects/charactermanaj/
I would like to get as many asets into this program. Unfortunately, most of the work from volunteers is no longer available. Does anyone have this program with profiles on the hard disk?
Maybe there are some Japanese sites that still have some asets, but I don't know enough Japanese to be able to find them.
The wiki mentions this page, but it's been dead for a few years. Like CharacterManaJ..... -,-
Thank you for any help! Anyone got a link to free version of photoshop?
I had a cracked version of Photoshop on my old computer before it broke.
My old link for the cracked version has been taken down and I sure as shit am not spending 20 bucks a month for it.
Only alternative I found was Gimp, which doesn't feel right to use, but I can live with it if there isn't anything else. Anyone got references of good design (preferably book covers) in A4?
I'm at a loss here and looking for some inspo, it's very hard to make anything look pleasant with the shitty 1:41 ratio damn this reptiles quality is so good Feel free to send some if you want You know what to do.
