>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
>>>/r/ is a better idea. /gd/ doesn't take requests or does 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?

What font is this one?


Myriad Condensed

are you even serious

You know what, /gd/?

Fuck your 'simple questions that are easily googleable' threads, fuck your 'shit on this designer' thread. We're having a good old fashioned INSPIRATION THREAD.

Post stuff that inspires you. Logos, websites, branding, etc.

I'm tired of this slanted block look from Windows, let's have /gd/ make a new design for the OS.

I'd like to have a /gd/ debate over it though.

the only advantage i've seen in a professional environment is that having a ton of macs in your studio looks more professional to your dumbass clients.

so I guess in that sense it's not a money pit if you're getting work based on first impressions, otherwise the money you save on component upgrades is well worth it.
Pretty not good.. At least for a refined operating system used globally for business. If the grunge splashes weren't so clearly preset brushes, it'd make a pretty polished and attractive album cover, even if the idea isn't particularly inspired or fresh.
Well look, at the shop that I work at, the owner switched to using macs and it had nothing to do with looking professional to clients dumbass or otherwise.
What's with the grunge? How does that fit an OS at ALL?

And what's the logo, the X?

Hello /gd/

That image is kinda pointless
Any fucking respectable designer just knows that their computers offer an amazing design. That is fucking it.

Those devices are pretty as fuck. People want them even if they only have one port.

I bought a 2015 macbook just because it was amazingly beutiful.

The Mac vs Windows shitfest is nothing different than fucking console wars. Both are fucking awful and both are fucking amazing. Depends on who the fuck you are and what the fuck you do.

Literally the only people who argue are children, or extremely limited people, financially and socially.

How many douchebags dont you know that flaunt their apple devices as a badge of superiority?

Yeah, the bottom line is that it boils down to what the individual prefers and people that have time to argue Mac vs PC apparently aren't doing anything worthwhile anyway.

This, this, this.

Do whatever you want because both things have good and have bad. Let other people do whatever they want because both things have good and have bad.

You guys are absolute retards for arguing about other peoples perfectly valid choices.

Can I keep the icon glow?

kill yourself OP
Use guides to keep the margins equal in space. Top and bottom and the sides too. about an inch on the top and bottom and .5 on the sides.

I'd use a bolder font though. Like maybe try Bebas or something.
Unless you are making an ad for a rave party, get rid of the glow.
Pick a typeface that is not so thin, since the background is already distracting. I would start from scratch, and use a grid with margin's to help with the proportions. Why are you making ad, are you even a designer?
I agree the font is shite

I want to buy a graphic tablet but i really don't have idea which i should buy.

>> i´m not professional
>> something functional

Any recommendation?

Note: pic related, i made that shit using only a mouse.
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Woah wait, you mean you THAT using ONLY A MOUSE. fuck damn OP you a god.
This. It works extremely well.
ive used a cheap wacom and a cheap monoprice. the only problem i have with my monoprice is the pen, from taking it apart to using it.

both my wacom and monoprice were very sturdy.

dont get suckered into getting something for the amount of pressure sensitivity it has. it barely makes a difference for painters, let alone graphic designers.

my advice: get a cheap wacom. i would forget about the intuos, it will rack up your price and not offer you anything that a cheap bamboo wont. unless you are a painter, and especially if you are a beginner, find a cheap wacom and pay close attention to user reviews, you absolutely cant go wrong.

if you are a painter, software makes a much bigger difference than hardware, anyway.
doing vector-graphics with a clean vector-style like that is not any easier with a tablet than with a mouse (maybe even slightly harder with tablet, if you're manipulating handles/nodes a lot), making an image like that with a mouse shouldn't take you longer than an hour...


I own a pen & touch medium, a huion h610 pro and an intuos pro M. I'd say the intuos is the best one, but I find all of them pretty usable, and they give you some price-range to work off of.

I think Korean shape is gooood for design. And there are many interesting letters in Korean. ex)홋 (If you write your name, I will comment your korean name)

yeah, just discovered pixel sorting in combination with databending as a really good method to poop out some really nice, glitchy results.
Especially after revisiting it in ps.

Thanks! well, if you wanna achieve a similar look, start by using "processing", a small application that runs .pde scripts. there should be a few free ones scattered throughout the interwebs.
Then (if youj jhave basic coding knowledge) you can start picking apart the already written codes, and creating your own script.
Remember, using processing is only one of many ways to glitch images.

Is there by any chance that anyone in here has this? Any help much appreciated

Anyone have any examples of websites like these?

And can anyone explain the reasoning/logic behind the design thought of only using lowercase letters?

it's a post-modern linguistic style, adapting grammar rules to evoke a particular style of speech. Not much more to it.

I know this is going to seem ridiculous to anyone with an ounce of experience, however, what is the easiest way to go about recreating these sound waves in Photoshop or otherwise? The other tutorials for making sound waves have bold ugly designs. I'm looking for something subtle like in pic related.

Fucking hell. Explore the software.
see >>221997
Make thin rectangles in illustrator (or pen tool lines with a thick weight) Open the gradient tab and play around with that and their opacity. Repeat and use the align tool.
You're fucking dumb if you don't try it yourself.
>but creating rectangular shapes is so hard
That is you, OP. A dumb bitch.

Remember Phong? Site looks like shit in hindsight, but back in the day, it was one of the more advanced tutorial sites... I do agree that the web is becoming more and more homogenous, but at the same time—it doesn't look worse... It just comes off as being too much of the same. Like Helvetica usage.
