>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?

Good looks, thank you.
Brilliant! It all makes sense to me now. Guess I'll be learning illustrator and indesign to complement my nack for photoshop.

Thanks anon!

I hope I have the whole creative suite rather than just photoshop ripped on my PC.
Where could I find stock images that are free or aren't terribly expensive? In a portfolio project, what is the standard for image usage? I really don't want to just grab stuff from Google Images, but I don't think I could justify spending $50+ on one image

for those of you working as a graphic designer, how often do you do letterhead or envelope or invitation design?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.

how long have you been designing for?

my graphic design professor just makes it seem like if you can't design an envelope then you wont work in this field. and I really just suck at designing envelopes.
The only design I've done for envelopes is putting a small logo and the return address on the envelope. Anything more is just visual clutter.
Never, but then about 95% of our work is web or branding
>if you can't design an envelope then you wont work in this field
He's chatting shit, graphic design is a huge field and struggling a bit with print-based layouts shouldn't put you off.

thanks for the insight.

yeah, im pretty bad at print based layouts. I hate designing envelopes. business cards and letterheads I don't mind because there isnt as much room for error with document set up, but I tend to run into a lot of problems with envelopes. even when I use the proper dimensions it seems to come out like shit.
Worked for 4 years, have never designed a envelope, how ancient is your professor?

it looks like two mountains tbqh. the name should be bigger, is there a need for 2 pencils? and the pencils needs to be a little more obvious. one idea i just had that could be interesting it's a logo that look like pencil it's drawing the company name like one of those m.c. escher drawings. lately i've seen more people requesting more organic/hand made designs.

-Make the angles on the other side of the pencils visible.
-Make the lead portion of the front pencil larger, it is too small. Fill it with black.
-Pencils and inorganic looking lines don't work together so well. Consider making the logo a "drawn" font.
Great article. Thanks
Upon first glance I thought it was two mountains OP. I like the minimal style you've gone for and the charcoal colour. The type needs to be bigger as it feels distant and not a part of the overall logo. Ditch the circles next to the type too as they're not needed. Overall good effort but you need to refine a bit.

Please critique my logo. I am brand new to the graphic design field and am designing a logo for a microbrewery that is called Molon Poto (Come and Drink It), which is a play of words on Molon Labe (Came and Take It).
Most everything is Greek based but I am in severe need of critique. Thank you.

not too bad, could look better with better image qaulity
here some advice
- don't use color until the design is almost finished.
- never include the name on the logotype
- for logos always use a vector software
- never use strokes around logos unless it's something related to sports
- research the history of the company (write down everything important)
- research the competition company's logos
- once you think you're on the right path download some mockups (graphic burger, vk, etc) and show it to the client for opinions.

pic is 3 mins in photoshop editing your pics. the concepts aren't that bad but the execution is very amateur-ish.

Critique my logo. It's for a company which manufactures a bracket for attaching solar panels to roofs using less material. The design on the leftmost part of the logo is a representation of the bracket.
File: 175023167.jpg (28 KB, 392x423)

it doesn't work. there's nothing in it that conveys solar panels nor brackets. usually the logo is bigger than the text and its very easy to forget. i'm interested did you get the job for designing it or it is your company or something?
It's for a project on /r/freedesign. I'll keep this in mind for further designs.
