>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do free or even paid work sometimes. However, if you're new at something, asking "HOW can I X?" rather than "CAN YOU make X?" will give you better results.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

Hello! I'm working on a science project. Using PS or Ilustrator, I wanted to apply an eagle wings texture or pattern over a flat structure and then fold it so It looks like an actual eagle (see picture), but so far I am failing really hard. How should I do it? If you think I cannot do it with that software (intermediate skills) should i go to /wsr and ask for help there?
Of course you CAN do it with PS, but I would suggest using a 3D program instead desu. Just make your shape and project the texture onto it. Then you can fold it however you like.

Then again it really depends on what the end-game is here... What is it for? What are you actually going to be doing with it?

I figure this might be the best place to ask about this. I found some old shelves in our basement when I moved and I was thinking of putting them up in some pattern - not sure what would fit tho.

How would you guys go about arranging these? There are two larger ones, two medium ones and a small one. Any suggestions are welcome - both symmetrical and asymmetrical. I just don't know what to do with them.

Just gonna put stuff in them like books and awards and such.
Put the two big ones next to each other vertically. Put the two smaller ones on top of each other horizontally.

Throw tiny one in trash.
yes this is the correct board to ask about fucking putting shelves up, maybe you'd like to know what screws to use as well

Hey what are your thoughts on logos with intrinsic 3D elements? You know, stuff you would never notice unless the logo was intended to be looked at from many angles (or rotating). Is it a valid gimmick?

I'm running a little poll about this and a few other /gd/ things I'm curious about and would appreciate your input: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeLCynFKiEH5s44t_UkBdhipiBjDj2MFnXJs8lmoTFB1U9Tqw/viewform?usp=sf_link

guys is it true that design makes you think more than do? (and not because im lazy) if so i think ive finally found my vocation be honest please
>makes you think more than do
Isn't that true about most office work though? I mean, for every hour a programmer spends working on a piece of code he will probably write code for about 15 minutes. So in that sense it is more thinking about the structure and seeing how it will integrate with and impact other aspects of your code.

Same with graphic design, you need to think whatever you are supposed to create through before you execute the idea. Though GD is probably more about a stream of consciousness than pure thinking about a problem. You sketch out whatever your brain can come up with and pick whatever is best for the end goal.
>think more than do

There's a lot of psychology involved in graphic design.
it will depend on lots of things, if you work for a company or an agency with an art director then you will have very little control on the thought process.

1% aesthetic

>this flag in your room
>not to mention flag is creased
reassess your life, please.
Great flag.

how would you go about creating a shape like this when the polygon tool has a side limit of 100
create a line and make it so a duplicte is created every X° of rotation
then add circle with some feather
>polygon tool
not even once
Personally I'd write a Processing sketch (Java) to do something like this. Intricate geometric shapes like this are usually easier to make with direct programming and math instead of using shapes in graphics programs.

But i need to make a logo for a small project called MindBend.

Font "Macula" inspired by MC Escher's impossible shapes.

imo, try to connect the characters somehow. That would give it a more cohesive look. Right now it looks kinda like two different logos trying to battle for space (and also in space, ironically...)
And keep it to a solid color or just a few select colors, and then you can repurpose it for whatever you need once you have that down.

something along the lines of attached pic, but obviously some more time and care put into it.
galaxy is fine but it doesn't really need to be the Mac wallpaper

Great help guys, i love your suggestions.

I'll do another iteration with those in mind, and post the results.

Hi /gd/

Tired of every thing and posting here, want to have suggestions on how to make things better/ what could I have done better.

So hi. This anon is from a third world country and works at an MNC as a user experience designer. The MNC is the one that showed off Tiger Woods and bragged about performance. Anon makes only 9000$ a year, even after post-graduation. In anon's country, working for less than 11-12 hours a day can mean losing your job.

So after 16 months of mind numbing uninspired work making everything from shitty corporate ppts to outright stealing application designs. Today anon is sitting and shitting and wondering why after a four year graduation in Fashion Communication and a two year post-graduation in Communication Design, alongside works and internship worth a good few years, is his value so low?

What does /gd/ think of anon?
We can't say anything without seeing your work.

nah, that's too '70s. could pass today though, falling under the trend of "simplifying 'till it's barely recognizable"
I think without the gradient, it becomes too flat, so that there is no longer a sense of distance between the square and the type. The literal gap is gone.

>Overpaying for planned obsolescence phones and rock mice
Really liked the one of Visa
Google - about the same
Android - much better
Logitech - not needed, but looks more professional
Facebook - improvement
Premier League - unnecessary and looks slightly worse
Lenovo, unneeded; looks more 'modern' but also more basic
Spotify - better but still shit, they can improve those curves in the circle
airbnb - better
Discovery - better, good accent on the D
AOL - trying too hard to be 'modern'; loss of brand identity
msnbc - better but same as above
verizon - better but same as above
99designs - boring
mastercard - too basic, looks unprofessional
