Somebody please explain to me the genius behind this piece, I just can't see it. How do you get a degree in design, make garbage like this and it somehow ends up in a "gallery" and a magazine? Maybe I'm not enlightened enough in the craft of modern art to see the meaning of it... Is this a showcase of the autism they teach you in US universities?

I'm not OP by the way, in case you haven't figured. And no, my argument still stands. I'd suggest you read my comment again, because even if that designer said she was being retarded on purpose, her idea was not really about design first, but something irrelevant, namely her forced narrative. And where it was relevant, the whole package was far from convincing or noteworthy.
>>
>>322958
design is a tool for arguing a narrative without words. if you don't get that, and especially if you dance between getting it and thus arguing she failed and not getting it and thus arguing that others' failures shouldn't count, there's a reason you're being angry on a cartoon bbs at midnight on a thursday.

i don't even think she's saying anything useful, it's pretty standard babby's first liberalism "now i have a platform too, everyone with a platform should get to sound off individualistically". it's just less dumb than your "even if you have a platform you'd better fall in line".
>>
>>322958
also, if you seriously type "agenda-driven" without realizing that literally everyone and everything is agenda-driven and you just categorize what you learned first as "normal", you're honestly too dense to keep replying to.

From what I can see you went for the minimalist+art deco+memphis-milano look. That's quite a mashup, but it's perfectly acceptable today, and here it looks very good.
IMO the handwritten font doesn't fit in here. It creates a clash of perfect geometry/free form, and the bottom font also adds 3rd dimension. Plus the 2 fonts feel like a lingering hipster trend from the late 2000s. Not a good choice to put next to something that screams 2017.
Also, what kind of triggers my autism is the 45 degree stripes. Those don't look much like memphis-milano at all, they're machine-like and feel more like something from the 70s. Maybe make them horizontal for that '80s look. That said, this style has been butchered way worse elsewhere, so your choice still works alright.

How to get away with shit like this?

>>322910
eh on big projects like occulus it's less simple than that.

There's months of pre-planning and "do you like it" is like the discussion you get into if you've totally fucking failed and your team has failed.

Strategy, research, patent stuff, personas, launch strategy, brand manifestos, research into things like tooling, trends... it takes months to get all of that stuff together so you get a consenus on what "a good logo" looks like. and that's different every time.

so if you're going in like a typical fivrr kid with a bunch of "i like this it has a script font" then yea you're going to have a "i like" conversation with your client and you've set them up that way.

You get your client measuring against things like iconic, one-letter, cover-half-of-it-with-a-tree recognisable, and other strategic shit and you have a better chance.

but that requires you to also, you know, have a brain and stuff

Of course, but since OP was talking from his own perspective I was also referring to small-scale design. He said that his rationale/arguments didn't work

OK excuse my autism, I don't get it: is it yours or not?
In any case, good logo should always have enough contrast, and ideally be fit to be printed in black/white. Dull colors and different shades don't work very well in logos. Also it shouldn't be completely dependent on color scheme.

Hey guys,

Recently, I was asked to touch up some photos for a local windows and siding company to make them look more professional. Here's an example of a photo I edited. I think it looks pretty good but i've also been staring at it for hours and am not sure if it looks realistic.

Most of the people in here are wayyyy more experienced than me so any critique is greatly appreciated.

General criticism: first, all of your work rely on images too much. This is pretty outdated today, a logo should communicate a lot with very little. Second, the details you use are often too small. This looks rather like illustrations/posters, not logos.

>>322785
The angled logo gives a feeling of something playful and unconventional. Is that what you really want in law company?

>>322786
The letters have clashing fonts.
>>
you need to simplify these designs quite a bit.
think of a business card as your smallest medium to put it onto. Would you be able to decipher them if you were to scale them down right now?

try to convery meaning trough symbolism instead of illustrating the literal thing the logo represents.
>>
>>322784
I think there is too much detail for a logo.
>>
>>322784
they are all crap and someone needs to tell you
from the cutting out of the base images to the colours bleeding all over the place there is no well you did good here work on that

watch more tutorials and follow them learn some better basics before you explore

hello /gd,

someone know a easy way to do timeline (plug-in or software). I'd like to product a timeline with many "main" lines ex:

for a earth timeline

- geologic line
- vegetals
- animals
- composition of the air
.
.
.

and inside each main lines variations but set down with numbers (beginning maximum ending) automatically applied to the timeline. By automatically i mean if there are 3 animals species challenging, the numbers set for each provide a proportional result. (a little bit like in the second image).

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