This man has forgotten about Graphic Design than most of you will ever learn. Stop being a decadent hedonist and start living with purpose. Turn off Netflix, quit jacking off, and start studying cause it’s gonna be a cruel world out there in the years to come.

I think some people are just having a bit of trouble handling the fact that there's a dude out there making dope cash while they think their design skills are the similar but they're stuck freelancing for pajeet and his logos for the new fruit business around the corner.

Hope this is appropriate for /gd/
I need to move these pillars further away from the world origin, because I want more space between them. I do not want to change their size.
Unable to find a solution from google, so maybe someone here knows how to help?

Doing a print campaign for my dojo. Just want to get some feedback on design and content.

Things other people have mentioned:
- Needs call to action
- Prices for classes
- More vibrant colours

Any other advice greatly appreciated.

I prefer the original colour scheme, some of these colours look kinda gross together. I also don't like the shadow. It works well enough though
i see you took on board everything that was said, it looks ok not great but good enough, apart from (and i'm partly to blame here) them raised pics, i think if you dropped the shadow and put a 2px stroke on each pic it would look better, better enough that when you get a lot better and look back on these you don't say what was i thinking

The original colour scheme is more 'artistic' and looks better. The increased saturation and colour is better for print advertising though. You aren't really trying to win any design awards, just catch the eye of someone rifling through their junk mail.


I like it actually. It looks nice. It will be interesting to see how it comes out in print.

What font is this?
Gaye Sans
I'm pretty sure that's Goo Golit Neue, from the Effay Gee foundry

Solid font choice, that

Ok Anon, here is a question. I'm 28 living in NYC and I graduated from GD major last year. Spent few months looking for a job and finally got one. It's a small marketing company and I'm the only GD they gave for the whole team. I'm there full-time, not hour-based and it's been a year since I worked for them. Initially they gave my 37k/year and I was fine with it as I desperately needed a job. In 4 months they generously raised it to 38500/year.
No it's been over a year and I'm thinking for asking for a substantial raise from them. What I get now is more like an entry level salary and it's a bit tough to live by in NYC. I want to get at least to 42k or so. Do you think it's about time and appropriate to ask about it now?
I'm really afraid to be kicked out for that. I asked my manager regarding my stand in a company and he said I'm least likely to be fired as I pretty much do everything - from banners and posters to website development and 3D modeling. But I'm still hesitant that asking for 42k directly would be too much.

What do you think?
go for it anon, everything is a negotiation and you may only get 40,000
worst that could happen is they say fuck off your fired

are you worth 42k?
I mean, I know GDs who don't do half of what I do and they get 50k. Not even in NYC. And average salary for GD in NYC is 48k. Entry is around 38k, but the question is, can I ask for a non entry one after just 1 year.
I don't live in NYC so I wouldn't know
if I needed more to live on and I felt I deserved it would be my reasons for asking

Some other anon earlier told to some OP that you better not just learn to live-trace tutorial shit, otherwise when agency actually wants to hire you, you're fucked.

As a in-house graphic designer for 2 years, this made me bit concerned. I mean, 1/3 of my job is back-and-forth communication with the in-house clients, then 1/3 is related to making prints with in-house plotter machine, but that 1/3 that requires actually creating design, it's never anything fancy such as "do animated handletter authentic hipster shit" but usually just finding the kind of combination of shapes, sizes, colors, fonts and texts that marketing finally approves and takes into use.

I do wanna quit soon and go work for an actual agency soon so I could try my hand on handlettering hipster shit, but I'm worried if I've gotten the definition of "what actual design work is considered as" confused.

This kinda makes sense. Maybe bureaucracy means I get to do something that matters to society? Just a nice way to think about it.
What's the point of having a designer if the """marketing""" people have the last say?
The marketing people are responsible for the brand and how it is represented. They don't necessarily have the skills for design nor do they usually think creatively or laterally about a problem. That's where you come in.
The place I last worked had 60+ employees but the management structure was excellent. No stupid bureaucracy like having to deal with government clients. I could talk directly with whomever I wished whenever I needed to. There wasn't any crazy chain of command nor did I need to seek approval from zillions of people. With clients however, that was extremely variable and I've dealt with a few frustrating situations.

Great post, I've used the term "visual problem solver" more than once to underline the core concept of what I do.

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

Please read this and reply, anon

Can anyone shop the "Band of Brothers" text out of this photo?

I mean this seems like the most appropriate place to ask, I would try /wg/, but thats more just posting papes for others and less used for creative purposes.

Never been on the board before, so can anyone help? If not, guide me to people that can help? Thanks.

>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do 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.
The image resolution is pretty bad and looking at how the text laid out, I doubt it's possible to cleanly remove the text from the image.
Thanks folks
Never been to a jeweler, sorry for stealing the diamonds.
You know you can easily find it on google ?

also interesting but the dots arent small enough
this is a filter gallery/ halftone, with the dots set to minimum and the colours reset to b&w in the palette

You could find a transparent halftone png and definite it as pattern, then select Multiply / Screen or Overlay as the blend more and play with the scale.

Make the pattern into its own layer obvs
it actually wasn't me that originally asked i was just bored for 20 mins today at work but thank you

We're trying to recreate the /gd/ discord for album art threads, font sharing, showcase, and etc.

Join if interested.

discord(dot)gg / Hey9Sg5
Commit suicide

Literally why. Do you really need to be in constant contact with the same half-dozen autists who swear they're "like, totally part of a Top 20 agency bro" while asking basic fucking questions about production?'

The first discord was 30% highschool kids, 40% off-topic shit and 30% whiteknighting that one roastie admin

Sounds like you had a great time, not sure what you're bitching about.

AfterEffects: Displacement maps
>AfterEffects: Displacement maps
really? is it this simple?
i think i know how to used displacement maps but i still cant make out how do these
pretty sure the first pic is just an image with a displacement map that fades onto itself
secondone seems like a particle generator with 2 dynamics keyframes that fades onto itself.

this article on how hearthstone cards are animated is kind of relevant but doesn't really explain much
Thank you sir
