buy them so, most of them arent that expensive. You'll feel better and you'll be safe.

Post your own album art you've made, even for a real or fake band/artist. As long as it is some sort of album cover you have made, post it

I need to make this car for tonight but i don't know a thing about how to do it.
(i need to vectorize this with shadows and such, so it looks exactly the same as the image)
Is it hard?
I would pay for this to be done in a couple of hours too.

What does /gd/ think about the chances of computers/algorithms/AI taking over the world of graphic design?

A matter of 5,10,15 30 years? Will people always prefer a "human touch" or will price be the factor?

>>322803
To expand on my point a little, like OP was hinting at the biggest benefits of AI are simplicity (user doesn't have to worry about doing said task manually) and cost reduction (don't have to hire employees and worry about shit like payroll and overtime). When it comes to companies like Uber or long-haul transport, these outcomes are self-apparent.

For an AI system to truly make sense in this field, it would have to take a metrics-based approach to design; meaning, slap something together based on the data it already has available and go through numerous iterations based on data it collects either from the client themselves or focus tests. Then it has to demonstrate to the client exactly how it came to the conclusion it did, in order to justify the the level of control they're giving up.

The problem is, if you're using live humans for every project to refine the data, it's not really true automation is it? It's just a needlessly-complicated alternative to things like Fiverr.

OP here.

Appreciate this answer.
Definitely agree with a lot of points being made. I don't think there's a way to fully take the human aspect out of it, but there will be ways automation will make things easier.
>>
>>322797
I really think that with time, design will be completely taken over by machines.

For example, you will be able to put any picture on a program, press a button and it'll make it a vector.

Anyone got resume templates to work on in adobe indesign? I'm having a hard time finding a job and want to make my resume more aesthetically appealing, hoping this will at least boost my chances a bit.
>>
If anything it'll lower your chances. Unless you're applying in person, 99% of employers explicitly ask for your resume to be in .docx format (which InDesign doesn't support).

It's easier for everyone involved as it's a standard format with no compatibility issues across OS/browsers, and still lets whatever system they ahve set up crawl through the text for keywords.

>99% of employers explicitly ask for your resume to be in .docx format
Not where I'm from, at least. .pdf files and .docx are the usual.
>>
>>322787
If you have a hard time getting a job, the answer isn't to just make a prettier looking resume.
>>
>>322791
.pdf is absolutely fine

>>322845
eh, it can help

>>322787
you don't need indesign, ai or ps is more than enough

just make a one page resume, and you can find countless inspiration on google

'F' is too far from 'u'. Lines are too thin for a logo. No internal grid or guidelines to align things.

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.

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.
