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.

#4chan-gd @ irc.freenode.net
http://graphicdesign.wikia.com/

>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?

I am saving the lossless file for archival purposes but I want to share a copy to reddit.

enhancer
Regarding android image enhancers and upscalers:

Assume for a moment that you had an Android tablet that you used to store an extensive photography collection, spanning many years, beginning many, many years ago and the nature of this collection meant you kept the tablet offline 24/7. Assuming you now wanted to install a modern photo editor to upscale, brighten, correct saturation, and clean up the grainy nature of the older parts of said collection what would be the right choice?

It needs to function without connecting to the internet at any point for downloading adverts etc and will probably never be updated. I imagine the tablet will connect to the WiFi for about 10 minutes total during this process. I don't mind investing, but want to do it once and don't want to install massive apps like photoshop. I would prefer something intuitive and with simple sliders.

Any advice appreciated
Thx

Why is AI "art" so suspiciously hyped up by talentless hacks and coomers? It's not even real art, it's just generated from thousands of pre-obtained datas from the artworks of human artists WITHOUT their permission. And yet whenever you see it online, the tasteless niggers would swarm in and praise it like the Second Coming of Christ. (I hate the Antichrist)

I have a graphic design and marketing company. 2 and a half years old company now. Every day I'm getting less customers, I don't want to close the business but I don't know what to do. I don't have social media because I feel like bad about having it, customers come through my mouth to mouth contacts, and I used to receive customers from a working forum in my country, but the banned me because I was a racist son of a bitch, I don't blame them, I live in a slum and I know what black and arab people is capable of... and I am not ashamed of telling to everybody what I think about them, and what I saw them doing for €5. But getting back to the point, how should I get more customers? There is not jobs here... I can't just close the company and expect finding a job.

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.

Affinity Designer will become superior
AvA
I've started using Adobe Illustrator for the last couple of days and holy shit, this program is made by autists. It's unnecessarily complex and there are way too many things while using the pen tool that just don't make sense and make the work process that many times slower. And the layout is way too cluttered and feels crowded.
On the contrary, Affinity Designer allows a clean layout, a ridiculously easy to use pen tool and things like having a plethora of geometric shapes that make the work process a lot easier and quicker to get down.

The only things that I see Affinity Designer lacking are the mesh tool and the shape builder, may even add the width tool and having multiple gradients in one object as well. The moment Serif adds those things to their program, Adobe Illustrator dies, fuck your Creative Cloud.

I've been playing around with Photoshop and CSS and have come into a few issues.

I started by trying to trace out the shape of a letter using the shape tool since you can copy the shape into CSS, however had issues flattening the side of the rectangle (pic related). I ended up masking them which didn't carry over into CSS.

Finally it seems that all the shapes sizes have been changed and the hexagon isn't even a hexagon. (see next pic)

Is this just not the intended use or am I being retarded somehow? I'm quite new to both Photoshop and CSS.

Why is /gd/ so specific to the fairly niche field of graphic design when there's so many other design fields with no place to discuss them on 4chan?
Architecture, industrial/product design, interior design, marketing/advertising, etc. are all closely related fields but don't have a "home" on the site, unless you want to really stretch the "humanities" in /his/ - History & Humanities. I feel like it'd make sense to make /gd/ the de-facto place for those sort of things in the same way /n/ includes urban planning, /co/ includes live action comic adaptations, and /k/ includes military vehicles.
Graphic design really doesn't feel like an expansive enough topic to really *need* a board all to itself, and it's almost /po/ levels of dead. I don't think opening it to other fields of design would degrade board quality or anything.

Should i drop out graphic design collegue?
th-3524945538
I started going in a meme university months ago and i thinks it's utter shit, because we hardly ever do things related to the degree and lose so much time that i could use more efficiently if i could be self taught instead. Also, i plan on living from art (self taught) but was pressured by my mother to go an university and chose the graphic design degree, not only because it's a discipline that im genuinely interested but also the thing that i could get the most of. I think that i could save so much money and time if i could drop out and learn all graphic design theory by myself, but i keep hearing that a degree is absolutely necessary to get jobs and be succesful, is that true?

advice
Hey /gd/ can you give me some feedback and tips on photo manipulation?
I use GIMP since adobe photoshop is expensive and I am pretty much self taught so I know I am doing a few things wrong.

Can you tell me the best way to change hair colour and how to add lipstick? I have my own ways but it isnt 100% convincing. Any feedback on how to improve these pictures would be really helpful

Is there a formula for soulful design? Is it just fueled by nostalgia most of the time? Skeuomorphism is often seen as soulful and flat/material design is seen as soulless. I tend to think so too, but I can't seem to figure out if I really like the design or if I'm just being nostalgic. Do you guys have any examples of modern soulful design?

>original logo had your typical laurel + ribbon elements you see on most award logo/emblems

>art director still asks for more edits even though we’re past deadline

designprinciples
It's one thing to understand the elements and principles of design, it's another thing to properly apply it in your graphic design in in order to make great illustrations and text articles.

How do you guys learn to apply it properly? Whenever I try and learn to do so, it feels frustrating that my work looks and feels wrong and dull despite adhering to it.

Every single time someone posts an AI generated image tons of worthless "artists" come to advertise themselves. It's always some shitty anime girl porn artist level shit, never something that can be called art.
Is this really the state we're at, we're at the point where people only respect the effort and not the actual art itself? Instagram posts get thousands of likes not because what was posted is good, but because there are wide panning shots and big text saying "THIS TOOK ME 10 GORILLION YEARS TO MAKE" over some of the most basic looking shitn i've ever seen.
How are people unable to see that ai is a good thing? The only people who really lose are frauds and less creative than a fucking robot.
When did we stop respecting art as art

I have 8 years of experience as a designer, but never wasted money going to college for it. People who did a get a degree; do you have to show proof for it? I never had to show any proof for anything I had ever claimed (which are all truths btw) so can I just say "yeah bitch, I went to college"?

Recently found a collection of over 500 35mm projector slides, taken by a design firm to showcase old packaging and promotional designs to customers. Most of the slides are undated but the ones that are range from the early 70s to 1980.
I've had a glance through them and some of the more notable designs the lot included are:
>Packaging for One A Day multivitamins, Kool-Aid, Michelob, Borden, VO5 shampoo, ThermoServ, Morton salt
>Multiple unused branding/logo redesigns for SeaPak
>Marketing presentation for Borg Warner
>Complete unused rebrand for Speedy Auto Service (apparently to Speedy Muffler King)
>Print advertising promoting Wisconson cheese
>Miscellaneous other packaging, logo, and advertising designs
A lot of it is very stylized, very 70s stuff. If anyone's interested in seeing some of it let me know, I don't have a scanner yet but I've been taking photos through a slide viewer for the moment.

Pic related is just a random slide from the lot
