>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?

actually if you use otf the foundry can track the license that let you use the font (or in the case of this anon, the lack of license). It's hard to find information on that system since it's foundry-only and pretty secretive but some manuals, probably written by uncareful employees, quickly mention it

I can't fin it on the archive

I helped a friend with a logo so now he thinks I'm his in-house designer and keeps asking for other stuff. I've made brochures, banners, and also designed his website. All this for free because I'm too much of a cuck to say no.

Hey folks,

I was dicking around in Inkscape, trying to make the letter "z", inspired by the vulf font.
It ended up being a "2" but whatever.

The thing is, I've grown reasonably comfortable constructing stuff using stuff that was either directly geometrical or derived from a number of such simple object.
By division, union and stuff. But I don't at all know how to build things that still have a certain symmetry and harmony that are more complex.
As soon as I touch the nodes and try to change them, the balance and symmetry dies.

How you guys create complex shapes while not fucking them up?
I basically hate freehanding, and either I just suck at it, or there is/are a trick(s).
Are you talking about type or just random objects? I mean why do you want to do that, it's unclear...
Really the question boils down to:
How do I (or really you guys) create complex shapes that cannot easily be derived from well defined objects like rectangles and ellipses.

Go on then /crit/ rip into my latest piece
yes good eye
long shadows are a meme and will age like milk. don't use any of those ones.

None of the versions that are nested do so in a particularly convincing way. ugly overlaps abound, where elements aaaaalmost line up but don't quite make it. They should either line up precisely, or not at all. See critique image in >>305909 to get what I'm saying.

With all of that being said, I guess the bottom left one is the one that works best, but it's not an especially satisfying or interesting effect. You might have more luck working with customized letterforms to get them to mate in a compelling way.

trite as hell and ugly, but your VHS effects aren't even realistic. the only thing worse than a cliche is getting the cliche wrong.

be original.
