Can anyone tell me the name of the font used in the "sugar rinse" text? Or the name of a similar font. Thank you
Thank you!

What is the theory (or theories) behind most science fiction holographic display designs? For context, I'm looking at developing my own Magic Mirror interface for at least myself, and want to break out of the basic text layout look.

It seems that there's a lot of either circular or angular elements, bumped-out sections, thick lines with thin, sometimes crosshairs on corners, sometimes seemingly decorative corners, lots of block text, etc.
It can't all be just "because it looks cool and cutting-edge", right? Right?

Literally any clean, geometric sans-serif or slab serif will work.
Futura, Eurostyle, Avant Garde etc. I'm sure there's free variants, but these fonts are so damn ubiquitous that in private use cases literally nobody will catch you pirating them if you somehow don't have them installed.
I was thinking futura would be perfect for this.
I'm hoping to keep things free here. I'm a little uncomfortable with pirating fonts especially if I were to, like say, make the project public with photos/videos/etc. or released at least the source for my styles.

Or http://www.losttype.com/font/?name=venera
That one unfortunately does not have tabular figures.

How do I recreate this exactly? I think the font is part of the Helvetica family.

What I need to know is how to create the army style look (even spaces in between letters) and then then the eroded look too.
>even spaces in between letters
just play with the kerning of each letter (you can even use a grid to help yourself)
>the eroded look
google distressing tutorials, it's super easy
File: capture-it.png (78 KB, 615x304)

there's tons of fonts like that they're called 'stencil' also for the eroded look search for 'stencil grunge fonts' and you can also use distress actions.
>using a distressed font instead of distressing it yourself
>recommending a complete beginner to distress a font himself
that could end up in a ugly mess, making it yourself will require probably months of experience, also 99% of people can't tell the difference or don't really care if you distressed the yourself so it depends of who is it for and how much are they paying, if you're not a designer why even bother wasting time.
Where did he say he was a complete begginer

Using distressed fonts lmao

Hey, I want to make a logo for my class but I suck at illustrator. I want the logo to contain all the letters in the word 'epic' it's an inside joke. Help please!?
What is your question (remembering this isn't a request board)
How would I do this?

depending of the logo you won't even would have a need to use Illustrator that much, the process of making a logo is more or less like this:

-get the brief or all the info about the company
-write down keywords that relate to the company
-research what similar companies are using and what direction you should go (stand out or blend in)
-start drawing or sketching on paper make at least 5 different ones, you don't even need to draw just get some references if you don't how something looks
-pick the ones you think will work the best (maybe ask for opinions or post them on here and we'll tell you which will work better)
-refine the sketches and/or try out different layouts, sometimes you'll show the client different options sometimes you'll stick with just one design
-import the images on illustrator and either trace it manually or use the auto-trace it tool
-add the fonts or anything else you want
-work in black and white until you get the shapes right

also sometimes the presentation is just as important as the logo itself, you'll want to justify every desicion you make, like why the design is that way and even the fonts or colors you choose.

Are you using zip compression for the pdf?
Probably I'd that's the default.

I did have someone tell me to use law once but I have no idea what that does.
its probably the compression and ppi, change the save settingst to high quality + zip compression, also are you using illustrator to make the pdf?

if you're only sending it for revisions or approval you can change the resolution to 'screen 72ppi' the menu is on >Effect >Document Raster Settings

I usually try avoid using photos on pdf's if there's a need for graphics there's lots of great vector resources,

and you can search up youtube for "saving pdf settings illustrator or photoshop"
I am using illustrator to make pdfs. Sometimes indd also

Sending for proofing is one thing. But also. I dont want to have to use ftp to send most projects to the printers

And it's hard to avoid using photos in stuff like annual reports or college brochures. Or when clients specifically ask.

I'm not doing so much design as prepress
Just a funky example though.

Last week someone sent me a 1mb pdf and a 1mb photo and said. Replace the photo in the pdf with this one

Pop it open in AI
Pop the photo in.

Do you know any high quality designers who use templates, whether for websites, illustrations, video or posters?
Back when I was working at an advertising agency I saw SOOOO many templates being sold as OC.
Worst part is that most of the times they didn't even buy them, they just got it from shareae or something.

Nowadays I very rarely use them if a loyal client needs something done extra quick or extra cheap for some reason. But they are informed about it being templates and they even get to choose them before buying.

If the drink is red, should't the tetra pack packaging have the same color as the drink?
You're still doing it?
Seems alright, a little bland and mountains with snow make me think more of milk than of tea

I think more often I see color coding for tastes. Like orange for peach, purple for raspberry and so on. Plenty ice tea packaging uses blue btw (because "ice" I guess).
I don't think color of the drink matters that much because 1) the package is not transparent, 2) it's tea so one probably doesn't expect bold colors, 3) the color usually reflects the taste.
But if the drink is red, making the package the same color would make it feel more like whole, and add some interest/personality to the product. Vice versa, if a drink has some bold color like, let's say, blue, probably it would feel weird if it was not on the package. I'd feel like I got a wrong drink in the carton.

like the name/logo, but that in dark, its visually too near coca/cocoa, is confuse.
Its also as per >>350318 too bland, esp. for yoof market. If you wanted to stay two-color on the packaging, I'd maybe go red/blue, maybe even split. Pic rough, but you get the idea.
Blue is also good as cold, its more a 'summer' drink, and mountains in red dont really work for me.
'Contains' / fruit icons also too vague/undefined/badly placed/lost.
In another lifetime, used to run an open air bar in Germany, can confirm, Pfanner packaging >>350324 just werks. Used to buy tons of that shit, and it certainly wasn't for the taste - was literally just grab what looks passable first.
ahhh.. love this shit
OP, pic related is to me why I associate milk with your packaging, just because another company has already created a similar packaging, making me immediately think of a carton that’s full of milk.

The animation looks hacked together from a 2D image, I'd expect it to be smoother if it was a 3D model
for 2d, can't recall what they're called but usually you'll use photoshop brushes you can probably find them searching for "deviantart photoshop brushes" and maybe ad words like light, swoosh, and also smoke + brushes.

for the animation i believe after effects have some smoke plugins
There's an Ae plugin called Trapcode Form that will do this easy peesy
How would you create the brushes though? I wouldn't want to use an existing shape in professional work, and having to rely on someone else's brushes would limit the amount of variation.

That looks like just the right thing, thanks!

lmao im sorry op ur stuff is good. i saved most of it.

Nah, but seriously op, your stuff is great. I've never before seen close-up photos surrounded by inlines with a single word in helvetica above them.
the posters just doesnt work together as a series because they dont have much unifying elements except for the borders and the kanji on the side and truthfully i think the borders are unnecessary and butchers the image and restricts it. The Typeface should be changed into something else it looks too basic. Do a little case study on Kenya Hara. That'll do some good for you.

Hello, I love you and I'm in love with you.
How to achieve this kind of textured gradient on the apple / bottle?
Step 1 lock Apple later transparency
Step 2 apply gradient
Step 3 open blending tools
Step 4 apply texture
Alt steps:
Step 3 pick a grainy brush
Step 4 lightly dabble over Apple and bottle

Step 5 use a fade brush and light dabble the bottom and top for depth/shadow
Step 6 rinse repeat the same for bottle

There you go
