Is it even possible to incorporate rainbows into your designs in 2024 without it being a political reference?

>Why do /pol/fags keep coming here and shitting this board up
there's a few regulars that I would imagine have some inclination for graphic design, but they obsess 24/7 over /pol/shit, so they literally can't differentiate the two topics in their rotting mind

then they have the monthly (?) discord "raids" where they try to recruit/"redpill" normies from other boards

Is there a set of rules to generate Nine-Fold Script characters from Small Seal Script characters?
Or is it completely up to the artist?

Morę or less the latter. They are a bit similar to Royal Monograms and to signatures. A styilised set of words. And that nine fold script has been chosen because it's easier to carve out a rectangular symbol.

Does anyone have a crack for the adobe softwares? Out of college now and I really don't have the spare money to pay for the softwares I need. I need Illustrator, Photoshop, Aftereffects, Indesign, and a couple others.

not sure how well it'd work but couldn't you use layered shattered glass/crumpled paper textures of differing opacity? it looks like it's just a bunch of random geometric shapes layered to look more complicated than they really are.

Thats bullshit! look at this artpiece i found, believe it or not this is from 2019, at first glance this looks like something out of the early 2000s, so its absolutely possible to replicate it but you have a good point even if its not 100% accurate to the aesthetics of the 2000s it would be 100 times better as long as corporate memphis fucking dies

this is fire

a fine art album for print?

A painter asked me to design a book containing approx 120 paintings.
Their sizes and ratios are quite haphazard, and some of them are good enough to take up a 2-page spread alone, while others are kind of rough and should be small in the book.

Please share your experience and tips on this kind of project.
>>
This really, really, really depends on the theme.

Work backwards for any big project; what is the desired END result?

Is it to make people feel good, arouse them, give them ideas, fascinate, depress them... or is it just a case of "This is my art hurrr!" which should probably be framed as a personal journey, character exploration, or a social bridge to make the artist new friends and connections?

Lay out accordingly. Easier said than done though.

Make it more of a story type book if it's a collection that'll allow it. If not, weave the art pieces together using colours, sizes, shapes, places, objects to induce the desired effects in the end viewer.

Classic childrens pictoral books can be good at doing this kind of thing if you need some ideas.
>>
>>454170
Thank you for the wonderful reply.
>>
>>454191
i think its meager advice

this is not a 'what the reader feels' job

its a 'present the artist properly' job

id get some art books you like, have a talk with the artist. or look at a lot of art books, look at the artists work and have a vision of how to present it and make some sample pages for them to fall in love with.

do you know a lot about art or design?
>>
>>454194
I'll come back in a little bit with some more details about how I've been putting this book together, maybe some pages in progress, and some specific questions about the process.
Actually I've so far done pretty much every thing you've suggested (orienting towards the reader's experience, creating a thematic journey, studying various similar/related albums), which is encouraging.
I have some background in art myself, but this is my first time doing a project like this.

It's great to be able to discuss this with you!

Hi, Ive been into graphic design for a while, and I really feel like I wanna start doing my own thing instead of just admiring others pieces, where do I start? What book is best to read for the fundamentals? How should I actually build my own style? Anything helps, maybe its not the best place to ask idk, but I feel like some of you guys got a good grip of whats good and not. :)
(piece by Visual bleed)

>>453732
besides learning fundamentals, reading books and so on (which is incredibly important), the best way to start doing your own thing is...by starting to actually do something. it doesn't matter what, and your first pieces are most likely going to look like shit, but just like any other skill on this planet, the more you do it, the better you'll get at it

good luck!
>>
>>453764
Are there any resources on the fundamentals which you can recommend?

>>453164
If you hadn't told me what it was supposed to say, I would have no clue what it was saying. Take this idea completely back to the drawing board. I think utilizing Roman columns is cool but not how it was used here. Good luck.
>>
>>453164
The lettering is kind of cool, quirky and odd but still mostly legible...but the placement of "Roma" works totally against it making sense and is just too much.

The capital O works too even though it's a different typeface but the U isn't really helping things .... I would suggest laying it all out straight in a single line and then tweaking individual elements you think *really* need to be weirder
