>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.

Do you guys think more complex, stylish logos (designs that were seen around the 90's-00's) will make their comeback? I for one would welcome it.
1960-72 is go tier.

Unfortunately, until phones triple in size, or phones start displaying directly in your retina, we will be stuck with ultra minimal flat over tones. So I guess give it 5 years.

I keep trying to explain to my friends that 60s-70s gd is the literal golden age for design.
They just don't get it.

Fuck though, what a time that was. Fucking crazy art, architecture, film, music. Like they go from badly designing shit in the 50s (though some of it can look pretty good) to masterpieces of design. I'm honestly jealous of the people who got to live through that period. Shit must have been amazing. With the exception of 'Nam, I guess. Though the Cold War probably brought on a lot of what influenced the style. All that emerging technology, space exploration, all kinds of stuff.

Fuck I love it.
The era's design inspires me more than the shit nowadays. Some of the new stuff is cool, but it's hard for me to think we'll have anybody that'll become an instant classic, in any field. Like some of the great directors of the time. I mean fuck, movies probably will never be great again. It's just shit to get normies' money. "Hey guys, remember Tonka Trucks? Yer gonna love a movie imagining of it!". No real vision anymore. Fuckin memberberries.
I would agree, but
Fuck that. 60s-70s architecture was the worst.

Is this the new Wacom Cintiq killer?



Looks so good, But also so expensive. definitely a cintiq killer, that shit is way too expensive. I think this is just 300 $ more or so.
>Cintiq killer
>with Microsoft's stylus technology

No. If it were an iMac with the iPad Pro as its screen, then we'd be looking at a revolution.

I need some ideas for a poster I need to make that somehow revolves around music.

Does anyone have any idea ?
I thought about to do the typography to look like a piano keyboard, but the client said its to boring.
What else could I work with ? Any ideas ?
No matter what, anything could help.

Please help !

( pic unrelated )
whats it for
what genre
more contextneeded, genre of music? festival? band event? target audience? how many posters have you done in the past?
It is for a small local band, but they don't play a real specific genre.

That's the problem I have, it's nothing specific.
It's just a poster I need to do to advertise them.
do they have a logo? try to collect inspiration and see if something comes up. post once you have some ideas or sketches
>they don't play a real specific genre.
Waltz jazz dubstep and death metal?
Come on op, of course they do. What instruments do they have. Whats their top song?

Sup /gd/, this is my current logo right now. I have been trying to design a new (more professional logo) for months, but keep creating things that I feel don't fit for me.

I'm a streamer, I play a variety of games but one game in particular I have been with for years. Many people have suggested I make a logo based off that, but I want to eventually move on to other games and having a logo that isn't reusable bothers me.

- - to the point...

I've made several logos. All of them I'm not happy with. I have done a lot of research and frankly want to settle on a flat design and not anything flashy that you see those e-sports teams and streams have. I am not sure just what to design, and I keep just chucking out ideas. I want something that can be unique and flat like... TotalBiscuit or Lirik. They're very simple yet iconic as you know who they belong to. I don't feel I have those niches though that can describe my stream well though.

Any suggestions on where to start with making a more permanent logo for myself?

Wondering if anyone has any real experience with either job area.

Going into college to finish up my Bachelors and unsure which degree to take, Graphic or Web Design.

>Which one has more jobs?
>Which one is most needed?
>Which one makes more than the other?

Not too sure, could use some help with some of these answers and anymore that might come up.

As a UX designer myself this has been the best trolling this year so far or the most stupid comment I have encountered nowdays.

Anyways if you think UX is about what you have said then Its also okay to say that design is about making things pretty. Am I right?

Wow, that's some wireframed information architecture you've got there; and generic UI buttons in the lower left corner. Damn.
Please tell me how hard was it for you to come to the conclusion that the best color for the interface is yet another shade of probably blue. This high-contrast button from above the fold is optimized for conversion and it will improve our ROI, guys. That's what this book says, so I must implement it the same way in our _agile_ management environment and test it for a week with some random guys and cater to them--instead of setting up the standards ourselves. because God forbid we stray away from the norm. How else are we going to compete with that other hip startup from the other side of the office building if we're not hitting those milestones, team? The results of the five days sprint, believe it or not, are inconclusive and promising at the same time. Or tell me how you need to reinvent the wheel and think of a smart way of presenting to your clueless clients the natural, logical, evident and obvious flow of your landing page with as many redundancies as possible. And how you need to emphasize the use of a burger icon on your desktop, even though you only have four links inside of it. Don't mind me, I don't know what *buzzwords alert* empathetic, human-centered design is (when will we design interfaces for our pets?).

This is why designers are never taken seriously by engineers. I can't wait for AI design to take over and refresh this stuck-up industry made of people who move boxes around and then tell me how important their job is. UX is only *common sense* that every front-end designer should have. Or call it a good eye for design, but please stop exaggerating how hard UX is. It should have never been separated from UI in the first place.

I like Adidas' logo, but I'm not crazy about it.

Gotta get me a navy blue tracksuit to squat around in though.

Thanks yo! I miss skating around in their gear.

This is nice. Like some Egyptian pictographs. Shame the clothes are kind of lame. Like shit a dude in a fraternity would wear.

Emerica is another good skate logo.
I used to love this shit. Looked like a mountain to me for the longest time until I finally saw the E in perspective.

What have you been working on /gd/?

General Critique thread I guess.

Give advice as to how fellow anons could improve etc.

This should be the front page of a catologue of a company that sells mobile phones, not a real company, that's a school project.. My goal wasn't to represent the company or its activities but only to do a nice graphic work. What do you guys think about this?
helvetica bold on repeat is very lazy design.
it looks fine on it's own but does not fit the brief at all.

you can do better.
I used this font to keep it simple, I tried to do it repetitive to have like a brainwash effect like something that you watch and you remember. Sorry for my bad english ahah
Reduce the size of the logo at the top because your piece looks too busy. Also make the text at the bottom smaller. Those changes will make this piece look more minimalistic and "clean". Cool composition and pretty intersecting pictures.

What did he mean by this?

That graphic design is a risky occupation as a lot of jobs don't pull through given that clients often back down after initial draft and try to bargain after a price has been stablished putting you in an uncomfortable situation where you have to either demand or negotiate a new price or probably lose the job itself

I hope the stickers are XBOXHEUG because I can't read shit on there.

wich software do you use, to edit images?
Photoshop or Gimp (or something completely different)
8 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I actually use Adobe After Effects for everything.

Started as me being an edgy 13 year old wanting to make lightsaber/shootout/explosion short films so I installed AE and autistically learned everything about it, never needed photoshop for anything.

But if someone asks me do I know how to use PS I always say yes
Used both and I refuse to pay all that money for one when the free one does exactly the same and is easier to use.

Money-wise...Gimp rules and PS sucks donkey cock.
how fucking poor are you people
If you really work with design there is only one answer.
If you are speaking only of the OP topic, I see, but otherwise, Adobe doesn't do all best. Back in February of this year I started the job I'm currently at and we use CorelDRAW for vector art, and I greatly prefer it to Adobe Illustrator now, where I previously thought AI couldn't be matched. It can, and CorelDRAW is better for me. However, Corel's Photopaint is crappy in general, but does a handful of things perhaps a little better. Point is, Adobe doesn't rule all when you actually put some time into alternatives. Photoshop is king of the top shelf for photo though.
