>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.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

>Where can I find inspiration?

What online portfolio websites would you recommend /gd/?
ok tier:

god tier:
ur own site cuz provides most control and lern how to make websight. bonus points if javascriptless.
dribbble if you're making logos, illos and web stuff.
behance if you are doing packaging, ad and print stuff.
I have some JavaScript fade-ins on my website and I'm sure conversion would plummet if I removed them. Most people don't care about optimization, they just want fancy stuff.

i hate the new card design, it looks disgusting. they went for an extremely ugly and bland pastel orange as a main colour and embossed the lion. it really looks worst in person.

i'm happy i still have the 2014 design, since it looks much nicer

How much would you guys charge to fix my ugly website?
Its an illustrator's portfolio so I would need there to be about 5 pages of galleries and maybe a few subpages to explain the artwork.
I bought GoDaddy's WordPress thing but I don't fucking understand how to use it.
I would recommend just building your own with Google. Not that hard, and it's free.
I appreciiate it but
If its like wix where the site's name is in the URL I don't want to. (like portfolio.tumblr.com, or portfolio.wixsite.com or portfolio.google.com if portfolio was the name of the website)
It just looks really unprofessional and I use my website to find jobs so I can't.

amateur web dev here. You could download WP then host it on your own paid for domain then simply choose a theme. They won't have the same themes as Wordpress.com since you will be using Wordpress.org but you will not have those stupid domain names like portfolio.wordpress.com or shit like "made using wordpress.com!" all over your site.

>is it not obvious its a T
He's pointing out the huge differences in gap sizes. The letters are also tilted at varying degrees and have poor kerning. Shit's fucked, my dude.
I mean everyone I've shown it to likes it. As long as the normies enjoy it, is it that big of a deal?
You're fine, but designers will notice these flaws. I'm the poster who pointed out the spacial difference at the top right and bottom left of the "T". Almost no one is going to notice or care. I do though. I actually do like it, despite my criticism. I think its a nice play on that T, for sure. And don't be too concerned with the extremely critically observant views of people like me, if its just not that big of a deal to you. And it isn't. The logo is pretty cool, the anon who replied to you as a reply to my post was perhaps not actually justified in the "Shit's fucked, my dude", because its a fairly nice logo actually. And I drew a diagonal line upon the left surface of the "T" and actually, all the diagonal lines of the other letters left sides line up with that, so you're good there. It may just appear that way, especially for the "A". You're fine. Your logo will serve its purpose.

I mostly meant it's fucked out of concern for you, anon, because it sounded like you paid for the logo and I hate the idea that your designer considered it good enough to be a completed product, let alone good enough to get paid for, when it's really clumsily executed and lazy in my opinion. The fixes to the things I and the other anon pointed out would have been very low effort. You're right that most people wouldn't notice or care about stuff like this though.

And to answer your initial question, I believe the font used is called Datacron.
