Taking 11 figures for a single logo design, you must have some industry clout there.

Did this back in '72, still just a beginner learning AI and browsing 4Changs, what do you think?

Wazzap guys,

Do you know how to transfer drawing from iPad app "Adobe Draw" to laptop "Adobe IIlustrator"it to be editable. I tried really hard but here is the problem what I face in (see image)
I hate this kind of 2x lines. I want it to be 1 line and editable.
(I upload drawing from Adobe draw to creative cloud and then download it to my laptop.)
tell me what i'm not doing correctly

Hi Guys,

Im a second-year design student; and I am now having to decide on a pathway/major for my design degree. I've narrowed it down to UX/UI pathway or Branding and Advertising. I know where i want to be as an end goal - an art director so I am wanting to know what would be good for me considering this. My worries about UX/UI is that it will be solely focused around digital/web design which I am more keen to focus on strategy, management, deeper meaning design etc. Is UX more than the popular belief of web/app design?

I also study a Business degree majoring in marketing concurrently with the design degree so will UX be good to pair with this? or more advertising and branding.

So fucking helpful. Thank you, guys!

I actually do have a big interest in the strategic and science behind design processes. And knowing UX is not solely focused on digital platforms I am thinking of going ahead with UX,

Because I see myself as not just another design operator making logos, brand packages for clients. The common misconception of what branding is has clouded the industries job of a brand designer where I am from.

Ux feels a lot more advanced and involved with guiding the clients through strategy and process. I feel in the near future the lines between brand strategist and UX designer will merge, Its been happening with various specialist areas in design and I think this is due because of universal design principles coming into play more frequently with technology and cultural shifts allowing for more open-ended and globalized communication.

Hey there

It seems the position you may be looking for is a Service Designer, (Human Centered Design Practitioner.) Check out IDEO as an entry to this type of design practice. Most major western companies are looking to build capabilities in this area. Good luck!
>>
>>334344
explain what service designers actually do? its hard to find info on it
>>
>>334605
It's a another one of those roles that hide behind intentionally vague attributes. Basically designers trying to scam you. Nothing different than a UX design with some minor bells and whistles here there. Or just call it a meme at this point.
>>
>>334613


Ah I see, Is there such thing as a designer role that looks at universal design principles? So essentially looking at accessibility in design - particularly with branding? Or is that sort of an integrated role of a brand. refer to the image attached at the top, Air bnb's logo flexibility who are the people involved with managing the brands adaptive and coherent qualities for universal principles

manager/director/specialist etc

How can I replicate the "uneven" look of old text on digital?
Like, toning down the "perfect" look of digital text to make it look old (or printed from a plate) without blurring it?

And choose an appropiate typeface, I'd would pick the IM Fell family, because it's level of detail to kerning and hinting, the variety of weights and it's autenticity from the source material.

It’s pretty simple. In fact you can learn the bulk in 30 minutes. Just look at it as upgraded Microsoft Word.

This

You can make shit work in InDesign really easily if you are used to other Adobe suite software, where it gets kinda complex is the templating and defaulting styles. If you use it a lot you can learn that in time though.

This goes with most jobs too, in general. Don't be afraid to look things up on how to do your job, it's far fuck better than just being a retard who doesn't even do that.

Hey /gd/, first time lurker/poster here.

Any thoughts on using any of these potential logos for a nonprofit I'm about to start-up with a childhood friend of mine?

We're both fresh out of graduate school (unrelated fields) but are taking time off from academia to pursue private ventures. We both had our shares of personal and mental health related hangups, which have played a major role in our decision to step away.

Put very briefly, the purpose of the organization is to raise money to start a major scholarship for Canadian scientists and researchers looking to launch careers in mental health sciences. In Canada, there's a serious funding gap where government grants are mostly issued to scholars applying to do work where the big money is at, such as breast cancer and diabetes. This is great, but it means private donors need to step in to fill the gap. That's where we want to make our mark.

The abbreviated name is "Stratas" and it will appeal mostly to millennials, young Canadians, and other academics. We want a youthful, modern image that appeals to people like us, rather than the stuffy and burueaucratic look of most other nonprofits and NGOs.

Any feedback is most welcome. Thanks so much.

AMG's is kinda okay, but then again it really doesn't say anything about the vehicles.

Hey /gd/, you're my last resort
Does anyone know what this particular "fragmentation" effect tecnically called? I can't seem to find any tutorial for it, and I'm in dire need of it. Is is some sort of pixel sorting?

All I want to know is what it is called and/or what tools to use on photoshop to recreate it

this is a particular effect the artist witchoria uses in some of her photos, and it's mesmerizing

what? you literally take a normal pic with the subject and background, then take a pic with only the background, put one on top of another. Then you can erase the subject without having to "reconstruct" the background m8

The fact you said erase and not mask shows me you are an idiot, and I was talking about doing the shards manually, you know that thing where you don't use a magic button or a script to do it for you

The name Dalsy is fucking dumb for a metal band.

So whatever the logo is, the end result will suck.

Change it to something cool like Darkthrone, Necropolis, Hellhammer, Satanic Warmaster, etc.
>>
>>334366
flip the stroke and the fill so that the edges are the only thing showing, lower the opacity to like 10% and then print it out and trace it to give it consistent edges. then scan that back in and live trace it.
