>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.

>Where can I find inspiration?

Not really. Millenials don’t work in such fashion. They want the latest and greatest website tech. They worship tech and progression.

I'm almost 25 and miss my phpbbses surrounding CS 1.6, SA-MP and such. Where you put stupid gifs or eyecancer photoshop banners in signatures, had a tiny avatar and a username which were all that identified you. Was cozy. Very cozy when enthusiastically playing gayman with your close, cryptically named internet friends on servers the admins hosted. Just an interests group, no for-profit IRL data-collection *Cuckcord* or any bs like that.

I’m 28 and I don’t miss any of that shit. Have nostalgia for lthe real world. It’s healthier trust me.
Bullied in school cuz 'tism therefore socially isolated from that real world, so different sensibility.

Life in run-down university dorms anarchy was kind of melancholic and fun tho. Future liver-failures chugging down the shittiest 'beer' all around in a thick cloud of cigarette smoke listening to a dude playing guitar. Not giving a fuck and smoking the green while cooking in kitchen. Was in relationship with one immaturely stupid and weird, yet above average IQ Russian girl. Bedbugs. Bedbugs everywhere. Good times.
not eye rape. i like it

Maybe kern it properly. (Or is that frowned upon on this board?)

>..expressed what you wanted to say in the simplest terms instead of being lazy..
Using a more 'complex' but accurate word like "aesthetic" insted of "is pretty" is the literal opposite of lazy though.

I call bullshit. What type of tree people draw could just as well depend on where they live and grew up. If this is some kind of study then its shit one because it doesn't control for local ecological variation.

should we start an ebook share like the font share?

these worked great but the files

also if you were on the thread can you reupload them to a mega? I'm currently trying to track down these and more and I thought id make a thread.

Um, sorry? Are you talking about the Kimberly Elam book? I read it and frankly I'm a bit skeptical about all the postmodern stuff in the book. The overall approach like "we give you hints and you do the rest" is also not my cup of tea.
Any other recs? Not that many books in GD wiki. I read Muller-Brockmann, was great. Ruder was one big picture book though, no actual rules.

This one works.
sorry for being a noob, but how can i dwld this?
nvm, i used my brain

Which one is better and why?
Ehhhhhh both are basicly the same.
They serve different purposes and can't exactly be compared. Now if you asked which is better between Helvetica, Arial, Roboto, and San Francisco, we'd be talking.

Is there a free to use asset pack for stuff like this? Like phones and computers to display your website/app in?
you mean mockups?
Yes, sorry I didn't know what the term for these kind of things was.

We find this amusing. PIC RELATED.
is that Captain Harlock? Rundown
>The Player of Games is a science fiction novel by Scottish writer Iain M. Banks, first published in 1988. It was the second published Culture novel. A film version was planned by Pathé in the 1990s, but was abandoned.

>In 2015, two SpaceX autonomous spaceport drone ships—Just Read the Instructions and Of Course I Still Love You—were named after ships in the book, as a posthumous tribute to Banks by Elon Musk.

/lit/ is always saying that Banks' novels are very anime-like. They have a weird boner about it because despite the guy being a very knowledgeable and good writer overall, even with a little of purple prose, you get your usual space catgirl waifu and shit alike with it.

When I showed them this 80's japanese cover for the novel they totally flipped up in agnition.

About this cover, I think the publisher just went with a Leiji Matsumoto rip-off generic art and slapped it on top of it because that was what the japanese light novel market had as cultural artifacs referencing space operas. No characters in the novel resemble these Knock-offs Harlock and Maetel so it's double hilarious.

How does one go about creating text-based art like this? Anyone have any tips on getting started?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
i saw something like this on an android app i just d/l'd (its a cross between photoshop/pivot/messenger).
download it and open a contact and then click on the blue "R" icon above the text field at the bottom

there are plenty of typographical settings that will generate cool text effects you are looking for

http:// soo.gd /OyY4
just remove the spaces from the url

http:// soo.gd /OyY4
this is how it was made

yeah google photocopier distortion, it's just trial and error but far more interesting results than trying to create it by hand.
print out some type and cut/paste/scan

actually make stuff instead of sitting around waiting for big ideas

Do you understand what "user experience" means?
Kid, grow up. Money talks, not your meme position.
Yeah I see you're very cool and all that. Money also wants good UX for some reason. I wonder why is that.
I can clearly see that you've never worked in a big company. Designers don't pull the strings on these sort of decisions, they're simply monkeys. If analytics shows 20% increase in sales then you'll be damn sure that it will be implemented.
that has never been the point, I don't know why you bring it up for the third time. this is graphic design board, not web analytics board. this might be good for conversions, but it's very questionable from design standpoint.
could as well load the site with flashing neon ads occupying the whole screen. I'm sure the conversions would go through the roof and I will be very glad for you.
