>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?

EURO bro here.

I open an LLC in the states (delaware or wyoming).
I do the nomad thing (never stay longer than six months in a given country)
I pay no taxes correct?

Now if I hire a couple of US freelance bros to help me with my graphic design.
Will I have to pay taxes then?

If I set foot in the US and do some work, will I have to pay taxes even if the clients are non us?
Here we go:
>can't open LLC as a non-citizen
>you can stay anywhere for a day, no matter, you're still supposed to pay taxes where you're a citizen if you make money
>"hiring US freelancers"
How is that a gain for you? You won't sell what they make back with profit, and you still got taxes to pay off of it
>"If I set foot in the US and do some work, will I have to pay taxes even if the clients are non us?"
Mate, even if you don't set foot you're still supposed to pay taxes of the place you're a citizen at. It's not the 1800s, US Marshals won't be stopped by a gun and a river between you. And why the fuck would client's nationality matter? You're the one paying taxes, it's your profit.

Overall, dumb as fuck plan. Although I'm curious, why Delaware and Wyoming?
of course you can open an LLC as a non-citizen
do some reading mate
the US tax exemption for passthrough LLCs is usually treaty rather than unilateral, contingent on paying them instead in your country of residence. this itself is typically not removed by being a nomad; your current home country (or if nothing else, where you do your banking) can and will pursue claims on other basises, and their tax authorities will definitely be informed by US tax authorities of the amounts and the treaty basis it was claimed under.

frankly, the nomad thing also rapidly turns into spending more money than you save. the 20% tax savings you'll see over the baltics, say, will probably be eaten up by increased rent costs alone as you have to pay month-by-month rather than a proper lease, and that's assuming you live solely in city centers so have no need for a car and die at 64 years and 11 months of your first illness ever. there are cases where this isn't true, but they're not graphic designers, not asking for advice on manchurian graffiti enthusiast forums, and are perfectly welcome in places like singapore or panama neatly avoiding the entire question.

Here's the facts:
1. You are a hack
2. You are a faggot
3. You will never be anything but a faggot hack posting shit on /gd/
>Over a century of history and tradition reduced to two fucking lines because someone fell for "muh modern reinvention"
So? Are you saying that every logo redesign have to contain the original concept? That's fucking stupid. Legacy doesn't have to be preserved, the purpose of a rebranding is to get away from the old and go in a new direction.

TOP LEL. It's bad because "two fucking lines".

>the purpose of a rebranding is to get away from the old and go in a new direction
1. They didn't go in a new direction. The new logo is so generic it could be anything from water line maintenance to some new e-sports video game.
2. Nobody wanted this """""direction""""" apart from 10 faggots in a boardroom that don't even play football

So i need to make a simpler design out of this. Help would be appreciated.
simplify it
did my answer contain as much information as your question, sorry bout that
I need to make an alternative design which is less confusing and more aesthetically pleasing.

Genius. Been completely ripped off by Virgil Abloh

Hello, Photoshop question here !
Anyone know how to do this effect [pic related], blend two pictures, using one as a texture (here chocolate) and keep the other one's main line (here putin's face)
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Putin's face is on there twice in fact. One very transparent, blending in with the pudding.
And one on top that leaves the eyes nose and mouth. Possibly blended in with the layers below.

There are thousands of ways to do this though just depends on how you want to aproach it.

Looks to me as if a simple pasted cut piece of putin's face onto pudding. Change the color of putin's face to match the chocolate pudding except for the eyes, and blend at the edges.
Light dropper on the shine of his face (nose, and upper right browl) to resemble the pudding more.
Ok dudes, Thanks for your help !

Just a pajeet from Delhi India.
New to graphic design and have suddenly got tons of assignments seems like I've bitten off more than i can chew anyone here from Delhi ?
email: abahl1986@gmail.com
You're doing what? Who? Why?
i've mentioned all of that in my previous post...get in touch if you're a graphic designer frm delhi

did a logo for a friends band by layering some of his sketches. how can i improve this? also how’s the drawing?
17 replies omitted. Click here to view.
It's not even art
It's a scribble on some piece of paper he found in a draw that someone else coloured in
post the face by itself, slut
This is more of an album cover than a logo. It’s too complex. The idea of a logo is to appeal to the eye. I can’t really tell what it is, and the colors don’t work very well together. It doesn’t have to be simplistic, but if it doesn’t look very good.

any good book about advertising?
It's Not How Good you Are, It's How Good you Want to Be by Paul Arden is also useful, albeit very brief
Ogilvy on Advertising is one of the best, can't recommend it enough
Seconded. Fewer leaves up top, OP
Are those books even applicable to today's Adwords and Facebook dominated market??

I wanna drop my CPC by outsmarting the algorithm, not "u n d e r s t a n d i n g" humans.
