>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 do you think of it?Thicken LinesHey guys I'm trying to create a background for my architecture portfolio and I'm having a little trouble making it look as I would like. Problem is that the image of the buildings were drawn in a seperate CAD software I no longer have access too, so I can't directly edit the line thickness. I basically want to thicken the lines so that the buildings stand out more against the colour background. I have increased their brightness and contrast and that somewhat helped but have any of you a suggestion on how to make them stand out more still? Thanks in advance!Are you Designing or are you Sprinting?No Busy-Work When you pay for a design agency, at least 50% of your budget is going to “busywork”. This is simply work that keeps the agency employees busy, but has absolutely no value for you. Do you really think 3 weeks of research and benchmarking is really necessary? No, it’s not and they know it too.
Yeah, we know that design agencies don’t like when we point this out, but it’s true: The large-scale, complicated hierarchies and superstar creative directors that were once key to agencies’ successes are now exactly what’s putting them in the ground. As agencies struggle to “go digital” and adapt their existing structure to a world that no longer has time to hang around and wait for them to get it right, we ask “Why should a project take 6 months, when it could take 8 days?”
As the antithesis of the traditional Design Agency, AJ&Smart has been lean and digital from day one. Using a core team of just 10 employees; AJ&Smart is dedicated to creating the best products and services, without wasting your time or budget. No busy-work, promise.
