>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.

awkward layout. the texture doesn't belong here. choose one style and stick with it: either hand-drawn, classic or modern—not all 3 at once. pointless to give more advice unless you settle on what you want.

Any decent resources that show how to talk to clients? I'm looking specifically for stuff with actual examples, just to get a grip on the kind of language used to actually sound business like and professional and not another autistic basement dwelling freelancer that doesn't really know what they're doing

Can we discuss the art/visual aesthetic of the Smiths and Morrissey's solo career during the 1980s and early 1990s? I've always loved this particular style, from their album art to their promotional flyers.

Which album/single cover is your favorite?

marketing production either in house or at a printer. you'll probably make double whatever your state's minimum wage is when you first start, i've seen some fancy printers pay their production designers $40/hr.

its also not hard you're usually just using the templates and branding materials to create collateral and emails and stuff

It actually looks like a Swastika.
I would rather think more other designs beginning from the actual Brand Name

Anyone working in gd and actually happy about it? It seems like every designer I talk to somehow stumbled into it, and just treats it like a 9-5 job (myself included)

the inherent issue is that "cool millennial startups" dont just hire graphic designers anymore. you need to have like 3 other skillsets to not get your resume thrown in the trash.

What's an easy and quick way to achieve the effect seen in each square here? I have a hard time believing each gradient would be done individually and have a colour and hue assigned. Please educate me.

I think I know what it is. Looks like unsharp mask. See picrelated, I downscaled the squares to 1px size, upscaled them again and applied strong unsharp mask
