>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.

My wife's birthday is coming up soon and I am looking at getting her a drawing tablet. She has been doing logo design for some photographer friends and other people/connections we've met through them. She's about to start her second year of college, but this is the first year that she is doing any graphic design specific classes. I honestly don't know much about the subject, but I am curious to know what devices are commonly used by some of you. I had a friend who used a Wacom Companion thing and he really liked it, but we've fallen out of favor and I don't even know if he still does much in the field. The ones I've looked at also only have 4th and 5th generation intel processors and I don't want to pay $1500 for old tech. Any suggestions would be welcome.

I bought a wacom 24HD when I was in my second year. Big investment but I'm glad I made it, it really helps and it's an amazing device. Got a cintiq companion 2 a few months ago for home as the big one is in the office, really liking that one as well. I'd say you might want to look into tablets that use the screen itself instead of just a drawing area that make you look at a monitor. Can't get used to that myself. I want to draw on the area that I'm actually drawing on.
>>
>>303108

do not buy cheaper competitors of wacom.
they do differ.

just buy a starters' model of wacom, e.g. wacom 671 or 471

At least you would sell it quickly.

Where the fuck can I find adobe CS6?

I've been using CS5 for 6 years and I'm about to get a new computer, but apparently CS6 isn't available anymore, and now you have to pay a monthly fee to use Adobe products.

How the fuck do graphic designers get photoshop nowadays? Do they all subscribe to that ridiculous "creative cloud" shit?

Fucking hell.

Nigga I use the newest CC every day and I disagree.
Creative Cloud was released in 2012 – five years ago. Besides, Smart Filters came with CS3 and Select & Mask is just a re-designed dialog with zero new features.
Take a good look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Photoshop_version_history so you can see the stagnation with your own eyes. These aren't new features, these are fucking bells, whistles and trinkets made by script kiddie interns.
>Yeah, no new useful pro features at all in the past 4 years. None. at all. Ever.
Well, you got me there, maybe there's a couple. But 60+ months of constant cashflow and this shit is what they come up with? Come on.
kinda related i guess https://medium.com/@vervalkon/fixing-photoshop-85fcb9d5295c#.er1212gp8

>>302828

You're overlooking that CC isn't just Photoshop. It's also Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, Premiere, Dreamweaver, SpeedGrade, Audition, Encore, Lightroom, etc etc.

And all of those have been updating, some in pretty big ways, since Adobe went to CC.
>>

>Photoshop.
>Illustrator
>InDesign
marginal updates

>After Effects

>Dreamweaver
lmao

>Premiere, SpeedGrade, Audition, Encore, Lightroom
I've only used them since 2014 or so so I don't have a complete picture.

Ignore the cat, I like a feedback on Typography.
1. Do they fit? (Rollerscript Smooth, Futura XBlk)
2. Are there alternatives?

I have tried to give contrast, went for same x-height, similarity in c, s, u, t and i.

I'm not sure about, if I have done it right. I know there's no strict rules about, it's a trial and error thing.

move "curious cat" to where the whiskers should be
move "pictures" to where the chin should be
the fonts are fine

Oh yes! I didn't thought about that! =) I was so lost into typography. Thanks for the great idea

Futura is not a good option. Use larger script fonts and contrast it with a simpler San serif font.

Try Champagne and lemosines

senpai just do a raindrop with like an arrow coming out of the bottom, give it some better colours and a dutch tilt and your gucci,

ignore these text memes, they're gonna be illegible where you would see this logo anyways

your current raindrop image is okay but it doesn't show any motion, start over, keep it simple but work on the overall shape
