This is a place to discuss topics about visual or graphic design. Requests for photoshopping or free work go in >>>/r/.

#/gd/ @ irc.rizon.net
#4chan-gd @ irc.freenode.net

>What literature should I read to get into graphic design?
The sidebar on the /gd/ wiki has plenty of book reccomendations.

>What programs do I need to get started?
Adobe Illustrator
Corel Draw

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>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?

anyone got an idea what western font is used here? whatthefont yields nothing
Why do you need a font? Why not draw it yourself, scan it, and trace it in illustrator? What kind of a designer are you?
probably a selfmade.
Hand lettering, if you want a western font Lost Type has some good ones.
because some of us have better things to do than jack off to our styluses all day
Like what?

Doubt that's a font. More likely a highly incompetent custom job.
No luck on the requests – anybody else got these?

I only have Block BQ. Haven't found any information about what the difference between BE and BQ is, but I'm guessing it's a Standard vs. Pro thing. BQ looks Pro to me, also according to the website you stated.

Sup /gd/. I'm a GD student and I'll just dump some of the shit I make.

None of this logos were made for profit, some of them are fictional, others are redesigns of stuff I've seen somewhere and one or two I made them for free to some friends and such. Just for fun and for the sake of practice.

I'll just dump them and feel free to dump your shit too.

"Shallow Waters" is a shop that sells equipment and clothing for sailing and fishing.

I'm a sophomore in high school at a vocational school, and I take a graphic communication course. Basically I've been saving up for like a year and a half and I have $1200 so far but I could work for more. I'm looking to run Adobe CC (student discount so it's $20
month) I've been looking at the 13" MacBook Pro 2015 model that costs $1499. It's got 2.7 GHz dual core i5, 256 gb storage, 8gb ram, and retina display. I assume this computer could run Adobe CC without an issue, but is it necessary to get a computer that's this expensive? I'd prefer a MacBook that's covered by the Apple warranty.

it won't do much else though but it renders like a beaut
For $1200, you'd get the most out of your money with a high end Windows laptop. If I were you, I'd look at something from Asus with an i7, at least a gtx 850m, and 8gb of ram. If you're not doing any video editing, you can save some cash on the i7 and go with something that has an i5, which will still be very capable, thoigh you'll lose out on hyperthreading. And as a bonus, you'd even have a good gaming laptop for any free time.
Anon you should have known better than to ask 4chan about macs. The circlejerk is strong. You'll be fine with literally any modern MBP. I use a 2009 15"MBP and just upgraded the RAM to 8gb and Hard Drive to 1TB Hybrid and it runs like a dream. You can do all that for under $500.
By a think pad.

Old printmaking basically. It can be woodcut, engraving, etching etc. which are methods of printmaking.
I recommend you looking at Gustave Dore's work, since he is one of the bests at this "style".

Anyone know what meme generator / app was used to make this image? I'm in the process of trolling some hardcore christians and all the meme generator sites I've tried don't match this style.
>Anyone know what meme generator / app was used to make this image?
How do you know it WAS made by a generator?
Here's a picture of some bricks maybe your can just put some text on top of it?
I'm talking about what exactly was used to make the text gradually change in size like that.

Just looks like less than 5 minutes of Photoshop to me.

The first two lines are a one size. The next three lines are larger. The next one is even larger, and "OF RICE" is largest.

You can use the paragraph option in Photoshop to make sure that the lettering is always spaced out exactly like that.
ok. Thanks anon.
wouldn't be surprised if there was a script that already does this.

>implies you can't currently work on something because you started last year
I like the idea, but it's really badly applicated. Use a different font, maybe a grotesque with angled terminals (sorry if I goofed the terms, English is not my native and I'm not fluent with the techical names)

Just a promo image for my brother's show this weekend, not a paid job or anything but I am on a tight schedule. After spending all night learning how to do everything I did here, I began to hate all of it.

I'm especially shifty about the font. I have no idea what to pair it with, or if I should even use it at all. At first I was trying something more experimental with the placement but I started to worry that I wouldn't be able to fit all the information and decided to play with the point size instead.

I'm half ready to scrap this format and flip the graphic around or something, but I'm getting burned out so I think it's time to quit for the night.
Start from scratch. No, better, dont even start at all. Shelf it, move on and itll eventually hit you when you're scribbling/fucking around. I always do this unless the deadline is dangerously near.
Some lettering stuff I´m doing just because

Hey /gd/, I need your opinions/advice:

I'm in my first year of studying graphic design and have the options of continuing it, or doing "web design and production" next year. Recently started a web design class and am enjoying the shit out of it, but enjoy GD just as much. It's still early days, but I'm gathering opinions and tossing up on which way to go.

Pros and cons of each job? Salary? Job availability (in Australia)? Etc.

I started out doing graphic design and then eventually had to build a site for a client. I ended up loving web stuff.

The best thing about it IMO is that while with design, every fucking retard 50 year old marketing manager thinks her two sense is worth shit when it comes to design feedback, but with web development, they are so clueless that you literally spend a 10% of the time developing the design with the clients, then the other 90% of the time is just good, solid uninterrupted work. I love it. The combination of both is the best.

As far as salary and stuff goes, being able to say you're proficient in both design and development goes a pretty long way.

>rate my logo pls
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Normally it isn't a problem, but sometimes it crops up, and outlining is the only solution.
What's the problem of rating logos?
>not outlining your type

It's common fucking practice, what the shit are you talking about?
what are you on ? Sending non-outlined text to the printer is fucking stupid, do you just enjoy fonts issues ?
(anon from >>230067)

You twat. This is something that comes up EVERY FUCKING DAY. I constantly am sending more diplomatic versions of >>230067 to a client.

True, some of them don't know what they're doing, because they're not trained to think like a designer (the small mom & pop shops, for instance, who want a table cover for their farmer's market stall), but when we're dealing with a big corporation who should know better, it's a constant headache, and your fucking attitude is the cancer that festers and oozes within the industry.

Bebas Neue is one of my old favorites; I found it on Dafont years ago and I still enjoy it (I don't use it as much now however).
A lot of the stuff from LostType is pretty good too.
