what about this one op what if you spread this one instead?
Ick is a garbage meme, just say it ick at the thing instead of using normalfag slang
Idk watch memes and shit on Tiktok I constantly get shit there imand I deserve I feel like that about everything now except my relationship with god and my family and loved ones to a lessor extent.

When you make memes try doing inquiry unquie art, drawn by yourself. We don’t deserve AI shit, being inspired by AI is fine but don’t just generate shit on IpenAi OpenAi

This is based
Ick is just a term only foids use when guys playing video games or showing their emotions is way worse than getting raped by gangbangers and drug abusers.

Then you should know that at the current year of 2023 graphic design is pretty much dead. I was a professional gd for almost 10 years working in both studios and on my own and I can't really find a job anymore. It's not even because of AI to be honest, its because of how the industry works and how bad the corporate environment has become.

There's still web design, 3D and VFX/motion design(primarily 3D too) and if you want something similar or easy to transition then chose one of those but I'm not sure for how long they will be relevant themselves because of the AI which is basically a final nail in the coffin of gd. Of course there are and will be exceptions and maybe you will get lucky to find some obscure local business that needs you, but if you are young and looking for a career in the future you should stop consider becoming a graphic designer. This profession is dead.

I see talented Designers who are now advocating for Good, Fast, and Cheap to stay competitive.
They want you to work much more for much less, participating in the race to the bottom.
the more you enforce solidarity, the more prone to corruption the system will get.
the more you encourage competition, the more cut-throat the system will be.

it is an old debate. no answer is correct by principle.
both sides contribute useful perspectives and in the end it is other aspects you need to consider in order to know how to approach a particular case.
I know what you mean, but that in itself doesn't really offer countermeasures or change.
there are reasons why you'd want homogeneity, and reasons for why you'd want heterogeneity.
I’m starting a degree in Industrial Product Design. Do you think AI may be able to automatize product design too?

I find it very hard to conceive, am I wrong?
possible. probably not likely, though.
I think the only honest answer is: nobody *really* knows.

there is projects automatizing image to 3d, and other projects trying to automatize manufacturing processes.
so it doesn't seem *completely* crazy.
but at the same time; if what you want to do is local hand-crafting of furniture or creating cad files for mass production, then you are probably save for now.
(my guess)

Could someone explain to me how I can improve the sharpness of the entire photograph? The face and skin
3 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Thank you very much, the face improved a lot. Excuse me, is there a way to improve the body and background even more?
Who is this
depends on the program
do you have any editing program? online there is some garbage websites that could help

in something like photoshop you'd be able to easily, just select the body, put it in a different layer, and do this and that
Judging by the tattoos, it can only be a roastie slut.
a method I sometimes use for grainy images is to use the noise reduction filter in Photoshop. duplicate the layer, apply a noise reduction filter and play around with the opacity and layer style like multiply or something for subtle results, then apply a sharpen filter. with the ai enhancement together this might output an even better image if you do the Photoshop first and then use ai.

How much does it cost to have a logo made for your company? My buddy says his friend hired some people and it cost him 8000 for 2 logos this cant be right, right? How much would you people charge for a nice logo made from scratch? Do you also do website design and if so how much would you charge?

Pic unrelated
not enough information to judge, honestly.
is the design-person well known and their service in high demand? how big is the business of your friend? multinational? is the studio legally checking for copyrights? did the deal include two sketches or full, complete, ready-to-use logos plus ownership? how many meetings/presentations/changes and so on?

logo creation is not just making nice pictograms, but can include a whole lot of research, prep work and responsibility.
you are not only paying for how it looks, but for how big and likely its success will be.

what do you think a fair price would be for a new amazon logo? imagine the potential consequences if shit goes wrong.
bezos wouldn't even want to pay student/cousin/amateur rates but happily sink enough money for whole teams of people to collect like 100 different approaches in order to then settle for the single best one.

believe me. there can be a lot of (invisible) work involved.
but that doesn't mean there not to be scammers...
as I said; not really enough information to be sure.
Well I come up with the rough idea and sketch and I ask an artist to come up with something in their own style
LOL, bro just use Microsoft Designer, it's free!
when a designer creates a logo, is it a one off payment for the services and product, or can there be situations where they get royalties for it's continued use, in a similar way a song or jingle might?

I want to create my portfolio, but I'm shit at design so I would like some recommendations on where to go from this. I have been using the 70-20-10 color rule and the color palette but I'm bad at this. Any ideas on what to do ?

>inb4 if you are shit why do you want to be a designer
I will be focusing on backend dev, but I need to show my job.

thanks in advanced

Use a template. Don't even bother with this. It's pointless working on it, I'm not even trying to discourage you. Design isn't your thing and if anyone saw this, you will get passed up instantly due to not recognizing the quality of this.
oh yeah hot shot?
lol to you too
Try adobe portfolio? Its what I use for work

i haven't done any graphic design stuff in a while and i just finally got a laptop. i decided to throw together a desktop wallpaper for myself. very different from my usual style. any critiques on how to approach it differently?
i'm also wanting to find a cheap alternative to illustrator that would run well on my system if anyone is wanting to help me out with that. i'm getting sick of canva and i really don't wanna waste money on premium on there.
Inkscape is free. Affinity Designer if you want to pay a little money.
Either use Inkscape, though I always found it kind of sluggish, or download an old version of Illustrator. I'd favor the latter.
Adobe CS2 applications are fantastic for older systems, and you can really just google for keys. Yes, the software will be 20 years old and is much less convenient than modern versions, but it was once the industry standard, and time doesn't make it worse. The interface will also be less loaded, which is great if you're on a lower resolution display.
so i was taught with 2021-2023 versions of illustrator. will older versions be noticeably different with the aesthetics? my general vibe is kinda best summed up by my pic i attatched. (its an old school project lol)
I honestly have very little frame of reference when it comes to more modern software. I think if you've been trained on these modern versions, you might want to get at least CS4 or CS5. They're also easy to get your hands on, but do require a crack to get working. With CS2, a valid key is enough.
But I guess the style is achievable with any post-2000 version of Illustrator.

Hello, I'm looking for a smart AI software that surpasses the generative fill feature in Photoshop. I've purchased a subscription mainly to generate edits for product shoots.

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).
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!)

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

Umm... are you not supposed to work freelance/having clients instead of wageslaving for breadcrumbs in a studio? lol. All the people I know who do Motion Graphics work that way.
I do flyers for comedians, podcast logos, and sometimes product packaging if somebody reaches out to me, but I make the majority of my money selling my own original artwork.

Is it really good or is it popular just because its 70$/life license?
That's the main reason. I imagine all their sales happen when it's on sale too so I doubt it will ever get much investment.

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.
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.
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!

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

I have the opportunity to attend two different schools for a "multimedia design" degree, both take sort of a different approach

First one: This one gives you a very basic understanding of design with two or three design subjects in the curriculum like "Graphic Design I/II" and the rest of the degree is divided in different modules where they teach you certain software and a project along with it, from Photoshop, Illustrator, Blender, Unreal Engine, post production video/audio, even PHP programming with UX/UI stuff, 3D modeling/animation, VFX etc. I expect all of them to be very basic and that you're supposed to dive deep on your own interest, it's more like a "practical" degree in some way.

The other school has a more traditional degree with courses like photography, art history & design, front end webdev, typography, morphology, digital audio, design semiotics, it also has some 3D subjects but it doesn't cover as much.

Idk, do you guys think it's important to have an strong foundation in design for working with 3D? I think I want to do motion graphics or maybe post-production video but I still don't know, the good thing about the first school is that it kinda shows you all the possibilities.

I don't know if I like Graphic Design to be honest, I like using photoshop and doing edits and stuff like that, but I don't like branding or logo/package design

these are all the comic fonts I use. Out of all these Toontime looks the most like the font in your image
comic sans obviously
Until the late 90's comics were lettered by hand.
Is very likely that what you have there is not a font.
