>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:

new logo to replace the old one from 1901 (typical busy logo with a million details indistinguishable from each other at 5ft away) The logo of a store for cleaning products from bulgaria. I need to create a poster for a uni assignment. I love using the fonts Typold Medium and Warsaw Gothic Regular to create blacked celebrity poster edits but I don't want to use these two fonts for the assignment. I don't want the professors to recognise the fonts and realise I have a blacked fetish. What are some good similar-looking alternative fonts for poster design? hello im trying to draw like kim junggi here without sketching and i find it most hard to do things from below(like pictured)esepcially the wheels and the people from that angle...maybe due to my inexperience or knowledge...
so im wondering how do you draw curves of any objects in such angles and perspective? what tools do you use to assure its accuracy and how do you sort of "guess" its angle and position and direction?
in perspective usually horizon line and vanishing points are used but for this image how do you establish any points for reference or measuring device to assure the image will look as correct as possible? example where the lines are not too wobbly or skewed and deformed to thevpoint of the image looking confusinf and bad?
outlined are the things i find most complex to do i guess estoy planeando una serie interactiva que trata mas o menos de rpg y me preguntaba que estilo eligo?? What are you working on /gd/ ? final sem of design school and i just never bothered to learn illustrator cuz i was never doing gd heavy related work but realised i probably should before my final sem starts...

I'm offering you cute and fun kids coloring page or book for you. Feel free to tell me what you need to illustrate. I will be more than happy to work with you.
Just describe the illustration you need for your coloring book page, or provide me some sketch/photo/image if you have to need for coloring book page .
Please message me and tell me what you need to illustrate for your (coloring book page) before ordering. You can explain your idea, send me sample pictures, etc. In order to achieve the best results for you. seems like alot of aspect but what i love the most is the soft, crips looking rendering and the realistic hue it causes also many more like the nice proportionally beautiful element of its finishes....

Hoping you can help with a product recommendation but I may be posting to the wrong board. I read the brief sticky but it doesn't really apply.
I literally just want to draw some stuff by hand and have it on the computer so that I can fix all the mistakes (I'm not good at drawing(or editing)).
My own research just shows that the options are too deep.
I don't need great quality but I feel like I'd need to see the image as I'm drawing it (pic related). I might be wrong though, I've never had the opportunity to try them out. Does anyone know of a chain that would let me try it out right now - southeast london?
I've got an old linx 1010 win10 tablet and I know a relative has an abandoned 23" all-in-one touchscreen computer (Windows 8, so pretty old). is there any way to use a stylus or something to draw on them without risk of your hand touching and ruining it?
Is there a cheap device that could be used for this? be it a tablet or peripheral (thinking around £300 absolute max). How do i learn this kind of sticker art?
What should i look at? what should be the message of the photo I've been seeing this around since 2017 on fashion sites and also Vice had similar look Does anyone have a link to a blkmarket dump?
Someone posted a dump on mega here a couple of weeks ago but now the folder has been deleted and I haven't downloaded everything like a retard (҂ ▵) It basically cannot be used because of how unnecessarily complex it is. Besides it looking like absolute shit, it also has no new features whatsoever compared to Word 2007. Sad! Hi I'm a design student and I'm looking for UI / UX Designers to interview for my research project on interface design. Anyone interested?

I'm moving from sony vegas to adobe premiere and I just added a GIF to the timeline. The gif is 32 frames long but I wanna stretch and loop it for like 4 minutes but Premiere doesn't let me do it.
I don't want to slow it down either. I don't want to add multiple instances of the same GIF in a sequence cuz I don't want to deal with each's attributes, just a single one where I can just edit everything.
I've done this countless times in sony vegas and ther it just let's me loop it.
Help me anons. What is wrong with the cocksuckers looking for work on this site? I keep sending proposals and out of 20 I send maybe 1 or 2 get a bite. I've made some money on there, don't get me wrong, but it's so fucking difficult to get work. Sometimes I LITERALLY SEND THE CLIENT EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT IN THE PROPOSAL, with a watermark, and I get no reply. Beginning to think the site is just a feed of bots because of how little people reply and how many weird same-y requests are on there
Anyone else have experience with this? I'm a shit editor, anybody have any advice? Since you guys are interested in UI/UX design and have questions regarding the industry I would love to answer your questions. I'm worked at various startups and big tech companies in the past as a product designer and currently doing CD/Consulting as a freelancer for one of five big tech.
Let me know what you would like to know. I love trains, while surfing the web for stuff about France's upcoming TGV M I found the blank plan view for an internal SNCF design competition for the livery of the first test train. While we mere mortals cannot submit to this competition unless we invent time travel, I would very much like to see what you guys /gd/ can come up with.
Winner gets bragging rights! Am I just retarded? What's the explanation behind it? Is there any reason why i should not use roboto on everything and call it a day? I didn't find a critique thread, so I'm making one.
I'll start by posting 3 different versions of a logo.
Which one you think is better: 1, 2 or 3?
This is for a tech (software development) company btw. is it really the best thing artists can do in 2020? when is this visual horror going to stop? you can't get much uglier than that. I am Japanese.
I wrote a picture. How the fuck do I make a good portfolio? Tried charging more for changes in the design and the client said "ok" I am making a 4chan clone and I need help with design. How can I fix this? I made this in ab an hour an its shit but I don't know how to start out graphics design. Anyone give me pointers? how do you place design properly like in a comic book and shit but not tracing, like the amount of words and so on what is the equation for those
is it like
bullshit times bullshit equals to ur mom is gae and so you thirdworlder is killing me?
like seriously help dont drag me hey /gd/ bros/faggs, I lost my wacom pen and got a new one. how do I connect those two???? Thoughts? Is still a useful resource or It's to be considered datated as fuck? ok fuck me its been 2 hours and i have still no clue how the original artist went from right to left. dude this is too much how did he do it?

im a noobie please Alright fellas, anything goes in this thread as long as it makes you feel absolutely miserable I need help. What would you guesstimate the font is for Tomlinson? I made a pixel art character (64 x 64) in gimp, how do I enlarge it without losing resolution so I can have it as a 500 x 500 image for example? On topic of presentation...
It seems that photograph of a crusty ballpoint pen sketch out of a notebook in an angle (an even some instagram filter applied) impresses clients far more than black and white vector shape of the thing in it's most precise and honest final form in center of the canvas exported / screenshotted straight out of Illustrator.
I guess seeing the shape, even in imprecise sketch form on a physical material is more tangible and relatable than perfectly sterile digital representation.
Are the digital process aesthetics alienating? Hey not sure where to post this.
Does anyone know what this style of art is called?
I remember it being popular in the 90s.
Lot's of squares and rectangles,sharp angles and lots of curves.
No idea what you would call it. Wtf Greeks look like this ??? modernism is best ism edition It's us again guys.
/GD general, come share your work and experience with the rest of us :)
https://discord.gg/2gvs99F What software can I use to create these types of graphes? Why does modern graphic design look so gay compared to what it use to be Hello!
I've made an app where you can draw stuff with rotations, symmetry, a lot of brushes, palettes, etc.
The brushes then can be transformed dynamically by applying effects to them that can change the brush shape, orientation, size, filling, alignment, etc.
The palettes are dynamic color ranges that the brush will take while drawing.
It is available for iOS, Android, and Web Browser.

Please give me your feedback or post images you draw with it!

>mfw Hey, we're a group of graphic design students working on a project exploring questions that people ask themelves during the lockdown. Our Instagram is @lockdownquestions [https://www.instagram.com/lockdownquestions/], we'd apreciate if you guys could send us a few questions that you have/had during the covid lockdown. how would this contribute to graphic design? In times where landscapes and architecture could be procedurally generated how would this apply? Im not thinking about useless art but more as a framework for our existing toolsets.
I imagine something like having the computer iterate/variate on my basedesign so i can show my client more work upfront without investing more time. Is this stupid? Or at least have a couple iterations and maybe discover something new that works. This could work well on structural stuff like grids in a magazine or website but i dont think it would work with logos.
what are your thoughts? maybe im just lazy Thoughts on AI taking your jobs away? How do you properly fit an anime character into an IRL photo?

Uploaded some books:
https://mega.nz/folder/3tsk0BiR#R1v-3dtRwB4WTE3dA0ompQ Okay /gd/, I've been doing some research on this and saw that no threads here were for this topic so I'm going to go ahead and try my luck here.
I've never been super into art in the past, was always more of a "math" guy and the works. Lately though I've been wanting to gain hobbies that don't revolve around vidya and weeb shit, and figured learning how to draw via a tablet and a pen would be fun.
Random google searches say everything from "it'll be hard but you can do it", to "don't even bother if you won't pick up a piece of paper".
I don't want to have to constantly invest money into art supples however. So what's your take on this /gd/, is it worth trying and if so how would you go about it? I need an mp4 of this as a loop, say that runs for around a minute. Can someone create a seamless loop for me p[lease. I will pay!
Thank you for your time. Post visuals you have made with a simple, minimalist, graceful appeal The second oldest logo functionally still has the most legible contrast in icon sizes,

Trying to make multiple gifs into 1 video.
When i do "Video Event FX" for zooming in/out and cropping, i get stuck with the corners of the image itself.
- if i zoom out will it maintain a sharp resolution?
- i did a blank background but it doesn't help. how can i "fuse them for a solid image" Could anyone explain how to get this effect?
I assume it's taken from a 3d model and then some filter is applied?
Any help is appreciated. Give it to me straight is this book any good?
and if it is can i get a mega link? https://www.soobituaries.com/adportal/listingView.html?id=2516
Let's take a moment to remember this badass motherfucker and his Photoshop skills I'm having difficulty using the shape builder tool on this object? Any help? I'm not too experienced at this and am not finding any info on it, but I think it has to do with this shape instead of there being a plain square on the corners of the selection window. Can someone explain this to me? If this is supposedly a better format option compared to jpg and png, then how come 4chan hasn't updated to be compatible with it? i hear big youtubers hire people to do behind the scenes grunt work like thumbnails, editing, etc. is there a place that has these listings or should i comb social media for it? pic related: i made it New one since the old one got archived Does these colors work together?

Rate and contribute All graphic design, including restaurant logos and video game HUDs, all seem to be evolving in the same direction as of recent. It looks like everything is loosing it's detail and becoming more simplified and "flat".

like someone wants a poster but i only have experience with farting.
humour me, how do you win this clientele. I have always found the design aesthetic of the Imperial ships and technology in Star Wars fascinating. The use of color and repeated shapes is distinctive and evokes a certain mood - similar to the rank pips on Imperial officer's chests.

I know you're supposed to use 100% when working with small font sizes, thin lines, etc. to avoid ghosting when printing, but what is the actual cutoff?
I'm working with 8 and 9pt fonts that I think I should be using 100% for, but there's other sizes and thin lines that I have to worry about too. Pic related is an example of what I'm working with at full size.
Help is appreciated! Can I get a partner it produce a template for pic related?
I'm going to setup the website/shop - in the meantime could I get some help with actually developing the product? Toying around with some lettermarks, top design lacks readability and bottom is inconsistent, not sure how to tackle this problem besides scrapping the concept, any input? I took this screenshot while playing cyberpunk, do you know how these artwork are called?
do you have something more, i would love to print them and hang on my wall Does anyone know what this type of art is called? I would really appreciate it if you tell me what it is...
