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?

What are some of the most visually (or not) interactive sites you've seen?
In term of pure interactivity, I really recommend the websites designed by utranoir, pretty amazing stuff http://www.overthetinyhills.com/

You know you want to photoshop it, /gd/. Your finger aches to right click and save, then open it and create art. Go on, /gd/. For glory!

>What is this?
There's a tournament called the 4CC (Four Chan Cup, other variations of the name are spamfiltered so watch out), which has AI versions of each 4chan board compete in simulated football (soccer) matches. The teams themselves are representations of each individual board's culture. /gd/ is one of the teams competing in it.

/gd/ is one of the boards renown for having a small, but loyal following. We already have a few posters over at the /vg/ thread, however we always try to keep the actual board informed and involved, as well as alert any new people to the concept of the cup, cause it's just fun times and they might like it.

>I'm not interested / fuck off with this thread / this isn't /gd/ / etc
If you're not interested, that's perfectly fine. The cup itself isn't a real e-sports event and is just something done between friends that people can be a part of. Threads on /gd/ related to the cup will always be called "#333 thread" in that exact spelling fashion, so just add that to your spam filter and they'll never show up again.

>I'm interested
Links to the channel where the games are streamed live is in the OP image along with the dates for the games which you can find in the link below:

>Recent events
/gd/ were relegated from the Elite Cup and are now playing in 10 days time in the '2015 Spring Babby Cup'.
Under new management, and a new look, they look to pick themselves up again.

Oh right, um, /gd/ won. I think.

Well done.

Pretty sure /gd/ has had more exciting games.
Whew, thank god for that.

We'll have more exciting games in the weeks to come.
Trust me, it wasn't our formation causing this, it was /3/'s.

Fuck my heart.

We play /an/ next, who just scored 6 goals in their last game so that should be exciting.
Don't lose your hype just yet folks.

Usually a team don't have retarded formation. This case there were two.

We had a good number of shots on goal. Hopefully Kerning starts getting things aligned and can become more dominant and spend less time fucking around in midfield.

A wins a win, though, and we got to fuck /3/. Today is a good day.

Wouldn't I?
Well it would be better if the print was on the chest and not the stomach
its shit
match your lines to the red of your shirt, reduce the size of the design and make it less heavy. you look like to have a poorly drawn basketball on your chest not an animu symbol.
shit give the orange fill a texture of an old tv screen, you know like the fuzzy lines and have it at a gradient that makes the whole design fade to white as it goes down
that would look badass

Hey /gd/ This is my first time on here and I need some help with Photoshop, I'm hoping someone here could help me.

I'm using CS6 and I'm trying to create an animation from hand drawn layers. Now I have 519 layers and when I export the video I've been setting it to 12 frames per second. This should give me a roughly 43 second animation, but the video that is created is only 17 seconds long which is the speed of a 30 fps video.

So can anyone help me fix this so that it is the right duration, because I have no clue what I'm doing wrong?
why are you using photoshop to export a video
I'm rendering the animation I made as a video, sorry I misworded that

why are you using photoshop to render an animation...
Because I'm taking a pisspoor animation course and we've been taught animation in photoshop and after effects. I can't even begin to understand why.

Hi /gd

Here is a logo I made for a hydroponics company in Chile, I stole the logo somewhere and reshaped it to be mine. They want to add HYDROPONICS under their name, I can't figure out how to do it in a fancy way. Have any idea?

Use your fucking brain, then. No one's going to help you. Your mind is so used to stealing that it can't function properly anymore.

If it's smaller or in a situation where the extra detail is not desirable, I ditch the outline.

critique web design, mock-ups, mobile designs etc.

pic related is me playing around with bootstrap for the very first time

the url is in the image

bootstrap is... interesting, but I don't know if it's good enough for me to want to master/main. A lot of bootstrap sites also look very similar, which is something I've tried to move away from here. I also really don't like how the page source looks with the ::before and ::afters.

anyways, any thoughts on the design?

it's not mobile friendly yet, which is annoying, because I thought not needing media queries was a big draw of bootstrap

if any one has any good experience with any bootstrap comments, submissions, and newsletter add-ons that'd be great too
The top part is too empty, and font-wise it could be much better. I'd reduce the size of the "a literary journal" and the tracking. Bring those two lines of text a bit closer.
That spaced menu is ugly as fuck. Put all the items on the middle. Remove those black borders. Make them less black.

Try including another font, too. Since you're using a serif one perhaps you can use a sans.

thanks for the feedback

def gna look at some more menus and play with the spacing

>Put all the items on the middle.

what do you mean by that?
Sorry, I think I phrased that wrong (my English can be sloppy sometimes). Make them centered, not just scattered all over the width of the screen.
Anon please stop using one of those templates that makes one div/block sacrifice your whole screen

Hey /gd/, graphic design student here, going to finish in 2 years and I want to combine gd with other fields like science etc. instead of going straight to the usless fields of advertising, any ideas of good places for second degrees, any sites for references or graphic artist / places / any sort of inspiration?

Would really appreciate any kind of help..

Also would love a discussion about all sorts of graphic art/design fields that are not advertising branding and all that garbage..

How do you market yourself? What's been your most fruitful campaign? Do you use Google Adwords?

I just started with google AdWords but, I'm probably not setting a high enough budget
mass email, just use mandrill
Sociel media sites, mainly Tumblr and Instagram.

I've been at it for about a year. Only in this past month have I discovered bots and scripts to do all the tedious dirty work. My sites are now growing automatically with little to no effort on my part promoting. All I have to focus on is just uploading work.

Overall, the big goal here is to attract some sort of attention from a more influential party (like a feature interview, or popular blog repost), in the hopes of catching the attention of an art director.

Works pretty well.
I've noted that my blog posts seems to get the most traffic. What can I do to attract more attention, or bridge that gap from passive reader to someone who contacts me?

Basically, how important is portfolio really?
Blog posts are a great way to get engaged traffic. I don't have a lot of experiences with making them, but the fact that your posts get the most traffic just adds to the fact that they work well.

What do you mean how important is your portfolio? It's the anchor of everything you do online - your ultimate selling point. It's pretty important!

I can't be bothered to go in depth how to get more engaged traffic. If it helps - here's one of the best things I ever did for my field (illustration)

Show audiences that there is a person behind your brand. I find people are much more willing to engage with someone who markets themselves as a single person rather than a faceless entity. A little personality goes a long way.
