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?

> 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!

I just started a job at a failing restaurant…
IMG_3504
Basically, I just started working at this place that has few employees. There are four of us in the kitchen. 2/4 of us are responsible(me, plus and kitchen manager)

The other 2 are lazy and don’t clean up after themselves.. the restaurant has failed many health inspections and is on the brink of getting shutdown… also most new hires quit on the first day because of lack of instruction…. They’re short staffed af.
this is the chillest job I’ve had, and it pays better than most restaurant. The owners are willing to give out raises if you’re decently competent. Tips are great.

Now, I do graphic design… is it so much as a stretch to ask the owner if I could revamp their kitchen with a bunch of fool-proof signs around the kitchen that tell new employees where things go? In exchange for a raise?

Or is that tacky? I don’t know how to network.

Hey /gd/

I have a question, if I produce images using illegal versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, do these images have any metadata that can be tracked to see if they were illegally produced?

and how do I remove such metadata, I tried googling this shit but it doesn't come up with any real answers on this topic

I'm just getting to the point of completing my 4th as well as 5th gd project for my portfolio and want to upload them all to Behance but also still not cause any problems for potential employers.

thanks

I have the opportunity to attend two different schools for a "multimedia design" degree, both take sort of a different approach

First one: This one gives you a very basic understanding of design with two or three design subjects in the curriculum like "Graphic Design I/II" and the rest of the degree is divided in different modules where they teach you certain software and a project along with it, from Photoshop, Illustrator, Blender, Unreal Engine, post production video/audio, even PHP programming with UX/UI stuff, 3D modeling/animation, VFX etc. I expect all of them to be very basic and that you're supposed to dive deep on your own interest, it's more like a "practical" degree in some way.

The other school has a more traditional degree with courses like photography, art history & design, front end webdev, typography, morphology, digital audio, design semiotics, it also has some 3D subjects but it doesn't cover as much.

Idk, do you guys think it's important to have an strong foundation in design for working with 3D? I think I want to do motion graphics or maybe post-production video but I still don't know, the good thing about the first school is that it kinda shows you all the possibilities.


I don't know if I like Graphic Design to be honest, I like using photoshop and doing edits and stuff like that, but I don't like branding or logo/package design

>fellow designer and I were assigned to assist with designing some banners in Figma
>Fellow designer’s title is technically “Art director” so she often feels like she’s the senior or leader despite us sharing the same role on this project

>I make a set of banners
>next morning I find out she adjusted the headlines on most of my banners
>she has a tendency to do this on past projects we’ve worked on with Figma

Is this normal when working with Figma or is my coworker just being a cunt? I wouldn’t be so annoyed by her edits if they were actually good, but every design edit or suggestion she’s made was always poorly received. If I tell her a blend mode should be set to “Lighten” to get a certain look, she’ll say it should be set to “screen”. Then the next day she realizes it should be “lighten” after all. I’ve found her moving some elements into the bleed area of certain templates, just because I guess she thought it looked better, but obviously she didn’t bother to look up the specs of the template.

typography issues. There’s ruqaa script for handwriting, kufi for writing with mosaics, naskh for legibility, you get the point. It’s a very flexible writing system with a lot of typographic styles. Arabs fell behind in the last 200 years, no new style of writing was created for computer systems. Text is a lot smaller because it’s written in a style not meant for glyphs. Arabic text doesn’t use up the whole vertical space, their letters just didn’t evolve in design. Compare 3 with ع: they’re the same shape and both are Arabic, 3’s shape evolved but ع didn’t. It just needs a new writing style and a way to differentiate letters without dots. 29LT made a font that was nice once but it wasn’t very simple. How would you fix it?

Am reading german design/typography material from 1928, wanted to share an excerpt:
on the topic of ornaments - "The more primitive a people, the more extravagantly they use ornament and decoration. The Indian overloads everything, every boat, every rudder, every arrow, with ornament. To insist on decoration is to put yourself on the same level as an Indian. The Indian in us all must be overcome. The Indian says: This woman is beautiful because she wears golden rings in her nose and her ears. Men of a higher culture say: This woman is beautiful because she does not wear rings in her nose or her ears. To seek beauty in form itself rather than make it dependent on ornament should be the aim of all mankind."

do you agree anon?

How do I make good looking headless edits?
examples
Not sure if this belongs here but since it's regarding photo manipulation (which counts as graphic design) I might as well try.
So I like this genre of edits of women called "Natural/Modular Body Magic", which basically means that they look like they either had their heads magically removed or that they never had any at all but they can live just fine without them (like dullahans), but many of them are pretty shit so I wanted to make some good ones of my own, the problem is that there are no good tutorials online on how to make them, so I was wondering if you guys could guide me on how to make them.
Pic related is more or less what I want to achieve, something that looks relatively natural and organic, rather than just a quick and sloppy MS paint job.

TATTOO design
o&#039;父
Hi everyone! Today i'm here to get some suggestions about the idea for the design of a tattoo that i want to dedicate to my father父.

Starting from the fact that I am not able to draw this tattoo on my own, what am I here for is the suggestion of the Best Hyperrealistic/Realistic tattoo artists around the Europe I can get in contant with. But not only, if you know some people who would be interested in this type of project please share their/your contact as well.

The idea of the tattoo is "simple" but at the same time very complicated: It is a kanji 父, which it should appear digged into the skin, with lacerations and redness of the skin to make it appear more realistic as possible.
So thats all.

I would like to thank everbody in advance for every type of suggestions/contact/helpful tip

Hi everyone! in early december i tried to cancel my subscription and was offered 2 months free and of course i accepted. today because i got the reminder that i was due to expire in days i went to the site to cancel and i was scared of the penalty to pay(all ok, i found on tiktok and here the way not to pay it by changing plan). The problem though is that as my next payment it only gives me 2,10€ and I would like to understand if it is true or maybe on February 1 I will end up paying 4/50€ so out of nowhere

IF YOU WANT TO BE A GRAPHIC DESIGNER
file
Then you should know that at the current year of 2023 graphic design is pretty much dead. I was a professional gd for almost 10 years working in both studios and on my own and I can't really find a job anymore. It's not even because of AI to be honest, its because of how the industry works and how bad the corporate environment has become.

There's still web design, 3D and VFX/motion design(primarily 3D too) and if you want something similar or easy to transition then chose one of those but I'm not sure for how long they will be relevant themselves because of the AI which is basically a final nail in the coffin of gd. Of course there are and will be exceptions and maybe you will get lucky to find some obscure local business that needs you, but if you are young and looking for a career in the future you should stop consider becoming a graphic designer. This profession is dead.

Get idea into Reality
IMG_5658
I am often flustered by pictures posted here. Like how the fuck you came even up with that idea.

I learned a lot is fuck around and find out. But I find at the start there is an idea. I have problems putting that into reality - not a problem of software. If I draw it, it looks shit. In my mind it looks good and different. This or I get stuck in the fuck around phase. Any tips on that topic? Should I just get better at drawing? Better at visualizing? I have the same problem in making music, and setting up scenes for photography. Doing street or travel photography, where I see the shit in front of my eyes, is way easier. Does that problem makes sense to anyone?

graphic design regrets thread

ITT you post old projects that bother you now that some time has passed. (projects that you can't be bothered to redo or currently plan on remaking).
Picrel is a logo I made for a water related company a long time ago. (forgive shit quality, original file lost) Looking back on it the water drop tip is too bent, the white lines outlining the horns are too thin, and the chin tuft comes too close to the edge of the drop.

Hi guys, I have a problem. Looking for a job and there is a fork in the road: I want UI/UX and Graphic Design (branding and other gibs) work experience, but I'm not getting them in the same time, obviously. My main goal is to become a chad-solo-specialist to fuck and rape everything that moves in marketing/design/websites as fast as possible and I'm in rush because the niche for this kind of shit in my country can shut down any time, already have some good artistic basis and taste is kind of present, which is a half of the job, so only experience in the field is required and some technical stuff (easy to pick at work).
I wondered, at least, books which cover pipelines and methodologies of modern companies.? I like books like Just Enough Research, UX Project Guide, Designing Brand Identity, but I feel they lack something practical, you know. Thanks in advance

Hello Art friends, I’m just here to ask for name suggestions for my new PC that’s coming in. I’m making custom decals and all for the case and I’m looking for some name ideas. (For reference, it should have a good name similar to names like GLaDOS or HAL 9000)
Oh it also should relate to frogs
