Board: /gd/

"/gd/ - Graphic Design" is 4chan's imageboard for graphic design.

Welcome to /gd/
gd
This is a place to discuss topics about visual or graphic design. Requests for photoshopping or free work go on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests as appropriate.

>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?

What does "you have a good eye" actually mean?

I've been told this consistently over my career (currently only about 3 yrs in) and I can not tell if it's people saying "I want you to work on this shit because even if you completely fuck up you won't ruin the project" or if it's a genuine compliment.

A lot of "I'll do this, you do that because I think you have a good eye". Got it in school quite a bit as well.

Is it a genuine compliment or graphic design speak for "please fuck off and let me do the important stuff"?

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

Previous thread >>408210

> 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!

After effects help
Zoomerhappy
I am using aftereffects right now. I am really new to the program though. I basically have a still of someone's face pasted over another face in a video. The face is tracking the underlying face and moving position with it, that works, and is what I want.

However, if something like the characters hand moves by the face, it goes behind the face. How can I make it so certain objects can go in front of the thing on the top layer?

Is this a task for masks? If it is, is there a good tutorial anyone knows of?

Thank you frens

Premiere Pro Mask Motion
helpper
So I'm trying to use a considerably large mask and previously the mask was animating great. Now I've done some things aside from the mask and adjusted it a bit but it no longer animates. By animating I mean my mask points gradually move to the next position but they are instead jaggedly snapping to the next position. What is causing this?

mask i&#039;m shaping, keyframes activated
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?

the fasces is decent but leaves more to be desired,
it's too complex as a symbol and it's minimalist variants usually defeat the purpose of the image- bundle of rods signifying unity.

however the problem is that the name is derived from the symbol, so i doubt a concession can really be made for it.

Interior Design General /IDG/
MW-EZ493_miami__20161104120841_ZH
What are examples of interior design you have liked? What makes good interior design? Do you like more minimal or more theatrical? Interior design is the ultimate test of form meeting function. It is design that you live within.
>“In the centre of the living room area there is a loose group of 620 armchairs, my version of a seating landscape. It is a lively and much-used area with a view of the garden. Here we sit together, talk, entertain our friends and watch television. Plants, books and pictures lend atmosphere. The composition of these rooms represents the basic intention behind my design: simplicity, essentiality and openness. The objects do not boast about themselves, take centre stage or restrict but withdraw into the background. Their reduction and unobtrusiveness generate space. The orderliness is not restrictive but liberating.
>“In a world which is filling up at a disconcerting pace, that is destructively loud and visually confusing, design has the task in my view to be quiet, to help generate a level of calm that allows people to come to themselves. The contra position to this is a design that strongly stimulates, that wants to draw attention to itself and arouse strong emotions. For me this is inhumane because it adds in its way to the chaos that confuses, numbs and lames us.

I need harsh criticism on my platform and ideas
Capture
My platform is snipcritics.com. It is an art review platform that puts critiques inside the artwork for more precise criticism.
The route I am currently taking (route 1):
>the platform is anonymous
>everyone can post as much as they want
>everyone can review as much as they want
>all art in 1 screen to remove the feeling of isolation that might occur in a new platform

route 2:
>users will need accounts
>only can post once before needing to give 3 critiques
>voting system to ensure quality of reviews (5 star system, 5 is perfectly helps the user acheive their goal, 1 is sabotages the goal of the user)

I'm gambling with this project essentially. Please I'll accept any help. I'm desperate. I worked for months on this with close to no money. I believe in this project, but I'm a newbie with close to no experience. I want to help artists improve their work by giving a great tool.

Thanks in advance to anyone who might be generous enough choose to help out.

Everything falls apart, looks ugly, or has glaring oversights like usability or missing functionality. And if anything does seem to look decent, it's impossible to create... even simple page transitions are difficult for me to implement

are there better resources? Should I just quit design and use bare html and JS for functionality? How can I make something that looks as good as pic related? Are there places where I can just steal design and not small fragments?

Screenshot from 2021-09-13 03-29-23
So I came across this casual game website that Microsoft has, and was surprised that it looks almost the same as it did in 2010, only some elements following the big rebranding when Windows 8 came out
I checked some of the games, and most of them don't follow Microsoft's current design language either, some of them using a weird mishmash of Vista/7 and Metro elements at best
Especially given that the target demographic of the webiste are the most casual of users (the casino shit even has microtransactions), shouldn't all of this follow the Metro aesthetic if flat design were so much more intuitive and easier to use than skeuomorphic interfaces? I think it exposes this idea pretty hard

Also, it'd be dope if someone could spoof the desktop app to think it has logged in so you can work offline/not pay for it and be able to open your design files.

creating fonts with inkscape
ink
Is it possible to create fonts with inkscape? How do I create a typeface without using some shitty non-free unpopular 3rd party program? Isn't a vector editor sufficient to create fonts? Is it also possible to hint fonts in inkscape? I've been looking for tutorial on this for so long. There has to be a FOSS program to create proper quality fonts.

Really considering making the switch to the Affinity suite. Adobe's jewish pricing system is absurd and I keep getting malware when I torrent the CS6 package. Anyone with experience using Affinity? Are there any glaring changes to your workflow? Do you find their unique tools useful?

I have already worked as a graphic designer for five years, but havent finished any higher education courses.

Im currently thinking about dropping some money on a year-long course - but im torn between taking up a DTP course and a web design one.

On one hand, I have half a year of experience as a graphic designer for websites - but seems like the main goal of the course is to build a portfolio website on wordpress and that seems like something i can figure out on my own.

On the other hand, I'd much rather enjoy working in a publishing house, preferably designing book coversm but im kinda worried print is going extinct.

Third option that im not really considering that much is a more marketing/ad-campaign focused graphic design course but i hate marketing and i refuse to indulge in copywriting so i think i will pass on this one.

Which one would yall go for? Help me out on this one, im retarded.

Personal Crest
DolorTemperat_draft_03_wallpaper
Do you think the wing looks a little weird? I've spent hours trying to get the little points and arcs right. Should they be even spread out or slightly leaning towards bottom like now? It's a delicate balance. Sometimes it looked like someone took a bite out of him. Sometimes his wings look too thin. I want big broad wings, but not fat and slow. I don't know. I've been staring at this too long and I keep nudging vertices back and forth pointlessly.

Evenly spaced would look proper, as a graphic logo should be. But having them a bit exponentially spaced out makes it look faster, modernized.

3D Graphic Design
rendering
Yo lads,
I try to up my design game by learning more 3D based things. I can navigate Cinema4D okayish now but there is a big problem I'm facing:
For everything that turns out looking great you seem to need a different render software instead of the native physical render in C4D such as Octane or Arnold. Obviously they are expensive and it seems there aren't working cracked versions available, also they don't seem to work on macbooks at all due to the lack of a good gpu. Is there anything I can do about this? I'm aware you can render certain things well enough with physical but every single tutorial that has a good looking outcome seems to use octane or arnold. Any help appreciated lads. It's crazy how high the entry barrier seems to be.. or am I just too dumb and missing something?
PS: I need moving things so photoshop won't help my broke ass this time

My mom asked me to edit a bit text on a study permit account statement ,i think? (not really sure about stuff like this) She fully knows that i can do it. and yes. i did it. but i cant push my self to send it to her. Morally, its straight up wrong, even tho it might be minuscule, i cant over look the fact that it still can be classified as fraud.

she told me to do it 3 days ago and ive just been making up excuses on why i havent sent it to her yet. only reason why im 50/50 about it is because she's my mom. idk what to do. anyone else had experienced something like this before?

Any non-adobe alternative to Canva Pro on MAC?
where
Gonna be real, I spent a good 4-5 hours trying to find a torrent for Canva Pro, but Mac torrents seem to be a bitch to deal with. I've also looked into Crello, but it's the same shit in terms of torrent and price. I might just pay for it in the end, but I thought I'd come here first to see if anyone had a better idea/strategy.
