You went to school for graphic design because it's your passion. Did you end up as a "Graphic Designer", or something else? How's that working out?

In my experience the most succesful designers/art students are the ones prone to globohomo culture and will work for corporations because the biggest added value of art school is not the skillset but the networking.

How do I rotate this shit (I'm using a MacBook)
have you tried turning your device 90 degrees?
How new are you to this? The rotate button is literally in your screenshot.

what softwares do you use to create diagrams and documents and shit like that? like create custom reusable components, position them on a grid, custom page sizes, a pdf document, mix text and images, stuff like that

First real peace. Let me know what you think.

Good or bad?

Hello /gd/ I am coming here with a request today. Can you guys help me find the original picture and the original drawing of these 2 demo's from a French band called Peste Noire? I have been trying to find the original ones for a while now and I have not been able, using Google and Yandex, I even contacted someone who had the original tapes, but sadly they sold them by the time I asked him for the scans. Thanks for your time and effort! I really appreciate it!
Okay OP, all I have to do is apply my magical de-filter brush onto the pic and you'll be able to reverse image search the orginal in no time!

>fellow designer and I were assigned to assist with designing some banners in Figma
>Fellow designer’s title is technically “Art director” so she often feels like she’s the senior or leader despite us sharing the same role on this project

>I make a set of banners
>next morning I find out she adjusted the headlines on most of my banners
>she has a tendency to do this on past projects we’ve worked on with Figma

Is this normal when working with Figma or is my coworker just being a cunt? I wouldn’t be so annoyed by her edits if they were actually good, but every design edit or suggestion she’s made was always poorly received. If I tell her a blend mode should be set to “Lighten” to get a certain look, she’ll say it should be set to “screen”. Then the next day she realizes it should be “lighten” after all. I’ve found her moving some elements into the bleed area of certain templates, just because I guess she thought it looked better, but obviously she didn’t bother to look up the specs of the template.

order of hiring is irrelevant
if shes he director shes the fucking director
her changing shit is not a conflict with you, its just how she thinks it should go

i would suggest asking her why she made the changes she made - in a totally nonconfrontational style (to learn, to get projects flowing better, etc)

why is she the last person to touch something before its delivered?

so sounds like she is in fact the director.

if not, you need to talk to someone over both your heads abut clearing the heirarchy up.

can Figma replace illustrator?
I'm so fucking done with Adobe
Depends on what you are using it for. Generally no. I was hoping the graphics tools would have improved if the Adobe merger went through.
this is the thing that pissed me off the most about that sale falling through. Figma's holes would be improved so so so much if adobe had taken over and implemented things they have perfected.

These Ai programs are taking our jobs! How are we going to stop the Adobe Illustrator files from taking over?

I'm new at life. Can I just drag and drop PDFs or images or something from InDesign into a Microsoft 365 PowerPoint so I can actually use cool type faces and interesting lines and curved text and shit?

I've been searching how to do this, but all the sites do all kinds of complicated things where the exported files have to be converted or show up as links in the PP.

I'm new at everything and so scared it will fail during the day I present :....( :o
>so I can actually use cool type faces and interesting lines and curved text and shit?

You can't do that in InDesign?

who the hell designed the 4chan banners, they are so simple yet so fun

good board guys
>goes on board meant for graphic design
>goes on a thread asking how to remake said pattern

almost like its question about a design...in graphics...

actual retard
so when i started i would either use a halftone brush in photoshop, which are generally pretty easy to find, or define my own pattern and mess with it's scaling on my project. hope this helps

that makes me want to buy a prius
Takashi Murakami used a similar aesthetic with his “superflat” style.
The Neighborhood is literally, "Whites and blacks, living together!", the kind of social equality that his being a doctor was supposed to represent. I'd also point to the Fresh Prince remake, Empire, etc.
I like the style even with its cheapness association, but I'm also a little unnerved with the idea of calling it "comfy" when it's basically colorized art deco.

What’s with this minimal color palette bullshit?

How is Affinity Photo standing against Adobe Photoshop? At what level do I notice difference? I really like their pay-once thing.

Yes I know I can just crack Photoshop.
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
cool! thank you!
No worries :)
Looking to get Affinity just because it has iPad apps, and before you shoot me, hear me out.

Trained in Adobe same as everyone, I use desktop PC 100%, not even in the apple ecosystem. However this week I found myself have to leave the house to work and have to bring my sffpc (built for this) to go to a family's house to work with their monitor. This situation has for the first time make me look into a tablet/laptop. However, I don't see myself using it that much but I would like the option, so the fact that the ipad can double as fun shit is making me consider it.

Anyway the fact that Adobe is full subscription makes me sick and I can't crack it on the ipad I don't think and they don't even have InDesign which I need more than video editing apps.

So give it to be straight /gd/bros, is an iPad w/ M chip w/ Affinity apps a viable portable option when one can't access a desktop?
>How is Affinity Photo standing against Adobe Photoshop?
Poorly. Its mostly the pay once policy that keep people attached.
Sure its not bad software and majority of Photo guys will be ok with it. But when you are using Photoshop for couple of years and then switch to this, you can feel the downgrade.
It was a good alternative to photoshop for quick work, but given Adobe copyrighting techniques and tools, good luck making it big against Adobe copyright trolling everyone.

Why is this program so fucking... I don't know, "retarded by default"? I made a 30kx30k transparent canvas. I have a bunch of 1920x1080 screenshots I want to stitch together. Does 10% zoom and that size look like it dropped a 1920x1080 image into a 30kx30k grid? No, it doesn't. The fucking thing apparently thinks in terms of pixels per inch or something, perhaps because it tuned towards printing viewed at a certain distance (?), not raw pixels. So when I place a 1080p screenshot, into a grid of a certain and explicitly specified dimension in the unit of PIXELS not INCHESxPPI, it fucks it all up. Rescales text, all manner.

Seriously, what is this bullshit. I recall searching for how to make this work as expected some time ago, and don't recall getting anywhere. Go to do something real quick a moment ago, realize again. If I have a 1000x1000 canvas then I should be able to line up 10 100x100 image chunks and have them render exactly as they were screenshotted. No pixels per inch, no pixel aspect ratio, no viewing distance, no bullshit.

This has to be simple to fix and I'm just retarded or something. GIMP etc behaves as expected, but I'm not fond of it overall.

I've stated my problem pretty clearly imo. Pic related is wrong. I put a 1920x1080 image into a canvas, and this is what it gave me. That's not 1920x1080.

You are indeed retarded, but no worries.

Create 10 000 px x 10 000 px new canvas with 72 DPI (no more is needed).

Open your screenshot in a new window and check its dimensions and DPI. If its 1920x1080 and 72 DPI as screenshot should, you can ctrl + a ctrl + c and ctrl + v on your big canvas and IT MUST WORK. If indeed your screens are 1920x1080 and 72 dpi, you can all drag them from folder now and organise it.
I believe I tested this last time, I will do so again. My intention is basically just something which is lossless, ie bitexact, with respect to the input on a pixel lvel. Not a visual level. If I were to drop the image in then go in and crop it out later it should be exactly 1920 x 1080p. I'll test it again. I'm going to be overlaying a lot of images using the transparency aspect to line them up precisely, and stupid shit like this doesn't help anything. I'm trying to make a case for it in my mind, but cannot do so. Drag and drop an image, it should be precisely the same as the input. No PPI / "dots per inch" (literally WHY) shit about it, I neither know nor give half a fuck, I'm working in PIXELS. Not DOTS or VIEWING DISTANCE. I don't know or give a shit about my or any display's pixel density. I want 1920x1080 in 1920x1080 out, those are PIXELS.

Alright, venting complete. I feel better now.

72 PPI seems to produce the expected result, just by eye. I'd read prior that this was some sort of standard display / "web" resolution, but in my tests with text it still clearly resampled it. Don't know what was going on then, but eh. Thanks for the replies.

> your local airport, USPS, Microsoft, IKEA, Timex, Coinbase

Thanks for confirming that you are speaking about GD work that you have no personal experience with whatsoever.

>will outsource things to AI.

Thanks also for confirming that you have zero reading comprehension skills and don't even know what "outsource" means.

There's nothing about picrel that a mildly intelligent person couldn't compose in house on a desktop PC, and nothing about it that would cause a reasonable potential user/ customer to avoid it based on it somehow conveying a sense of unprofessionalism or other red flags...it's boring, but boring works in the context of financial services.
It's exactly the kind of GD that proves the point that designers tend to be up their own asses when it comes to assessing their own value and necessity for using them at all.

Finally, even if they were dumb enough to pay an exorbitant amount for their logo, if you think the real grunt work at the agency wasn't done by low wage peons throwing shit against the wall and then when something stuck polished some more by low wage grunts and only then handed over by the suits who get all the credit and big money, you're even more ignorant than it would seem at first glance.
Now show the entire branding package and the hundreds of collateral assets that went along with the logo. Idiot.
And let's not forget Coinbase has its own typeface called "Coinbase Sans" with multiple weights and worldwide language support. You're a double idiot.
The problem with comparing AI-generated images and human art together is that there is a lot of control you don't really have when it comes to AI generated outputs. If you try to create new images of her in a new setting, like an exterior setting, or a new pose, is it possible for you to retain that exact same woman in that exact same outfit holding that exact same dagger?
