>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.

we talk about graphic design as a job, not about art as a hobby, and in a job you got deadlines and a customers demanding quick results, of course you need a process, but a streamlined, efficient process
AI just changed the game and made traditional graphic design processes obsolete

Meanwhile AI can make this.
From just a simple descriptive sentence an art style, basically what customer would tell a graphic designer.

sorry! didn't want to leave you hangin - been offline since.

I used the [ 3 colors ] 'image trace' setting.
make sure to expand!
after applying all the shapes are grouped together. either double click to enter the group or press ctrl+shift+g to ungroup.
select background shape(s).
delete!
I recolored the white shapes from inside of the fairchild (text, buttons and so on) so that I am left with only 2 colors total.
afterwards I manually changed these exact two (standard) colors to some other two colors. (select by fill color is your friend!)

>>453205
cool! didn't realize this feature exists. I might try that as well

Basically, I just started working at this place that has few employees. There are four of us in the kitchen. 2/4 of us are responsible(me, plus and kitchen manager)

The other 2 are lazy and don’t clean up after themselves.. the restaurant has failed many health inspections and is on the brink of getting shutdown… also most new hires quit on the first day because of lack of instruction…. They’re short staffed af.
this is the chillest job I’ve had, and it pays better than most restaurant. The owners are willing to give out raises if you’re decently competent. Tips are great.

Now, I do graphic design… is it so much as a stretch to ask the owner if I could revamp their kitchen with a bunch of fool-proof signs around the kitchen that tell new employees where things go? In exchange for a raise?

Or is that tacky? I don’t know how to network.

just do it. Dont ask. its just a resturant job who cares if they dont like it they will take them down but if they do like they will look at you like hot shit lol

>The other 2 are lazy and don’t clean up after themselves.

Seems the most needed sign is "clean up after yourself". Make one, show it the manager, .Tell him you feel it is needed and ask him if you can put it the kitchen and let him decide where it should go. Wait one or two weeks to see if this goes well. Talk to your boss about how it worked. Tell him could make more but you would also like to get a reasonable raise.

>>452233
if it makes your job easier I guess, but you're not hired to do that, it's not your job. If you want to be a good wagie then go for it, personally I'd just find another job.
>>
>>452233
dont say 'revamp the kitchen to them"
say it looks like people are leaving because they dont have proper info and that you think a few signs might help.
you might even make them first and show them and where they go.
Dont suck!

>>452240
ask before you put them up - its only your house as long as they let it be - cuz its the owners house til it aint.

prepare for rejection op just cuz people are territorial
>>
If you gonna do it with the intent of asking for money, you're wasting your time. The writing is on the wall (no pun intended) that this place is done. You should do it to make a better enviroment or working easier.
It's obvious he's not gonna pau anything for those signs

Back in 1999-2000, all internet connections were dial-up. Modem's max download speed was 56k, around 30k-to40k was the norm.
When we built websites, the home page had to download in 10 seconds or less. The different colors used in the background, divs,etc were either coded or an image consisting of a single pixel with the color you wanted was repeated . for backgrounds with alternating lines of diferrent colors, an image of a column te width of a single pixel was repeated.
Images were compressed to the exact size in pixels the you needed it at 72dpi. All images were preloaded. common monitor resolutions were 640x480 and 800x600 so you had to code your HTML and JavaScript accordingly.

Nowadays, most web developers don't know shit., only use CMS based websites(wordpress, joomla,drupal,etc)
If something goes wrong, they can't code, can't fix, can't modify, etc.
Can't make a CMS from scratch with a text editor like notepad.

Did we really get so cucked that trannies stole the short wavelength colors from us? I'm so fucking pissed off right now. I can't fuck men, I can't wear feminine clothing, they appropriated the rainbow, I can't say basic facts of biology nor be feminine/compassionate, and now apparently even the fucking short wavelengths are owned by the alphabet mafia. Fuck them. Seriously.
