>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]?
http://www.mediafire.com/download/027xjs3ujvyqxmd/Fonts.zip
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.

Can you guys at /gd/ help me out?

I'm looking for a logo for my brand. I was thinking about a palm tree similar like pic related (I'm terrible at drawing though)
Do you have any ideas for a nice palm or just tips for drawing one? I want to transfer the drawing into photoshop afterwards.

Let me see your ideas, every submit ist very appreciated!

Search shutterstock and other such sites for palm trees. When you find one you like you can do the ethical thing and pay for it or just rip it off.

>Socialist pamphlet
>Not even on 2nd real page before asking people for money

Pretty top notch representation of socialism desu~, You could probably work for Bernie Sanders.

Something about that red is too saturated or something and makes your numbers look blurry. Maybe it''s better in print, or maybe you just color picked right from some commie flag. I don't like it as a color for text though.

I also feel it would read better with spaces between paragraphs and lose the indentation. Feels messy.

>>312563
>your pamphlet is shit
>DDDRRRUUUMMMPPPFFFF!!!!

>>311378
Since I'm not getting paid to fix your abhorrency, I'll only vaguely point out what's wrong with it:

- inconsistency;
- numerous repetitions;
- sloppy layout;
- indentation;
- blatant disregard for typographic conventions;
- absolutely despicable title page.

You know what makes your shitty attempt at designing a handbook look passable to your average retard? A professional font. The only professional thing about that garbage.

we had the joys of socialism and the most democratic constitution in the world for 50 years. it didn't work out. please don't advocate this shit, especially for our countries. if have to i guess you can have your communes in california.

also, the 'successful' example of sweden is living on a huge debt and is in a process of committing cultural suicide while being in a dystopian censorship denial about everything.

the pamphlet is mostly tolerable, but it's off-putting that lines of text columns don't match.

I want to make fake billboards. As in I took a few pictures of billboards near me and want to superimpose images on them to look like an ad. I can't get the blending quite right any tips or tuturoials available anywhere?

I use cs6
>>
it completely depends on the image you're imposing you shit inn

creating and editing selection using select -> color range / select -> modify / quick mask + brushes / paths

adequate amount and proper type of blur applied on smart object layer for non-destructive editing

adjustment layers as clipping masks

editing the intensity of applied blur, textures and adjustment layers of specific spots using layer masks

learn to generate grain / find adequate texture to apply / extract it from other pictures similar pictures using select -> color range and desaturating it

blending modes

displacement map applied on background texture / bit of warp and such transformations so it doesn't look all flat

What are some good & active design groups/forums on the internet for discussion amongst graphic designers or similar digital media people?

I know we are supposed to be all competitors and shit but I am eastern europoor anyway so I don't care to share my trade secrets to other westerners since they are far away from them, and in turn, I don't feel shame in adopting their advice either.

Pic semi related, recently tried photo manipulation thingy to explore into some of the styles I like in terms of design and try to recreate something with my own hands. You're welcome to critique it but it's not the main purpose of this thread.

I know it's a slow ass subboard compared to likes of /pol/ and /tv/ so I can reward at least one poster with doing a free photomanip request on photoshop (just don't ask too fancy, it's free after all) for effortposting.

you won't find people knowing much about being "social" here sorry

you'll have better chances on some common place like facebook or (is it vik?) or maybe even reddit, besides of course networking with and meeting people in the real world
