My brother is the owner of a small business and wants to have a logo drawn up for his business (landscaping). What's the going rate for a business logo and would anyone here be interested in doing it?
>>
>>339474
nice gimp poster you got there. 9/11
I'd recommend going to >>>/r/ or >>>/wsr/ for request. But if your business considerably a serious one with quite amount of budget, go to 99designs.com and set up a logo brand contest.
>>
>>339476
ye that sounds about right if he has a budget steer him away from here, fucking moron, just because you want all the money to go back to the slums in India where you are from

>>339474
if you have a budget leave an email and i'm sure someone will contact you, i know at least 2 people on here do very good logo's pretty cheap, i had one of their emails and a sample of what they do but it's at work sorry
>>
>>339474
>What's the going rate for a business logo
The rate for a logo design is a mess, nowadays the cheapest logo you can get is a $5 from fiverr but it's not really worth it since they probably rip it off from someone else.

There's also wannabe designers who would charge between $30-100 for a 'decent' logo a lot of people go for it since the risk isn't that much and most times it fits the client needs wi

More experienced designers/freelancers would charge around $200-500 and they usually take the client through out the process, show him/her different options and work on further revisions if there's something the client wants different.

There's also logo contest websites where you can put a price between $30-300 and lots of people will submit a lots of different logos and work on any revisions although unless the price is above $100 they tend to be very generic-looking.

Also I'm interested in the logo job offer, I usually charge around $50 via paypal (payment after the client approves the design), people have said to me that I should charge more but I just feel its a fair price since it would usually take 2-3 hours, my email: axtaresdesign@gmail.com

Starting a small business, I want to make the brand something interesting and different, but it's so easy to just have the website be a white/black page with a modern looking font as the logo and that's it.

Basically do what every other startup seems to be doing.

Should I be trying harder to "go against the flow"?
>>
>>339474
$190 on 99designs, less on designcrowd, even less on fiverr. No one'll do it for free, and cheap ones are gonna be shit. And don't ever do business through 4chan.
>>339512
Because they have to work on various-colored surfaces. Covers change, you know. Same reason why they're usually a contrasting, rarely used color, like black or CMYK red.
>>339547
Both AI and (oh my fuck) CD can turn your handdrawn lines to smooth vectors. Might have to play around the settings to have appropriate smoothing. In AI it's the pencil, in CD a brush, i think. Brush in AI creates objects, not lines, so don't use it unless for illustration.
>>339551
Yes and no. There are many tricks you can use to use this template and still create a unique, recognizable site. Play around with the layout, and be sure to add some personal touch to the graphics (brand color filter on photos, some tiny details in animation, whatever). Anything that sets you apart works, even small, as long as it makes you memorable.

i have to make a poster thats about 5m high. How do i set up my document in indesign? do i just make a 5000x2000 mm file, or is there another, better way to do it?

Poster in inDesign? Do you mean illustrator?

Illustrator can handle 5000x2000mm just fine.

To clear things up when setting up for new document change the presets to print, unit to mm, width and height to anything you desire, and colour mode to cmyk.

How do I break into the design industry?

I'm on the cusp of graduating with a bachelor's and my school apparently didn't prepare me for the professional scene.

Use AE first; After Effects should be used to make segments of the video, and Premier to put those segments together
>>
>>340435
please don't listen to this retard >>341758 who thinks that editing in Ae and compositing in Pr isn't the stupidest thing ever thought. and he even advises you to do so...

Ae and Pr are totally different things.
Pr is your standard non-linear video editing software and is obviously meant to edit your footage.
Ae is used for compositing and post-production in general.
A normal workflow would be
>Edit (and maybe even color-correct) in Pr
>Import .prproj to Ae to fix footage (tracking, wire-removal, whatever), add some flashy graphics/special-effects and final coloring.

It can be called "Memphis", "Pacific Wave", '80s postmodern. Today most lump it under vaporwave and '90s, but this is kinda vague and misleading.
Basically, this style can be seen as a reaction against the dull, flat, sterile and rigid '70s design (google International Typographic Style). The 2 key influences in this style were Memphis Milano group and San Francisco school (most notably April Greiman, picrelated). It was popular because it was "the next big thing".
Technically, in the '90s this style was gradually succeeded by grunge. But it still lingered for a while, perhaps because the "edgy" grunge style popular at the time was too rebellious and cutting edge, and hardly fit corporate/family setting.

The more I use Illustrator, the more I'm starting to hate it. I have a perfect circle split into two halves, then rotated by 45 degrees, and then split into half again, so I'm left with half a circle at 40x20 pixels. But now the circle object group shows it's 39.996x20 pixels. WHY.
>>
>>344057
I don't know why it does this, but in your case you'd need 10k resolution to see 1px of difference. IMO it's fine and likely won't matter much, Illustrator is not AutoCAD and since the circle is just 40px, the difference is negligible.
Also note: perfect circle is impossible to do with beziers. It's only an approximation, usually with 4 points, and "The radial error in this approximation will be about 0.0273% of the circle's radius". Meaning, the error can be as big as 0.01px in this case, not 0.004px.

why do your text edges look so shit? did you resize the image or something?
in any case this is passable but quite average. you got the basic look and layout down, more or less. I would get rid of shadows around your name/occupation and make the text white to make better contrast. the font you chose is obviously some lame free one, honestly I'd go with something better looking (at least choose Lato or Open Sans). and last, there's a total lack of flair to your card, especially with grey. it's ok if you're fine with it, but if you wanted to catch attention then you didn't.

I'm trying to paint gray over black with not much opacity to make a smooth trasition. Problem is, my brush can't paint over it if it has less than 16%opacity and if it has, let's say, 17%, it paints as if it was at 100% opacity. If i pick a lighter or darker gray the percentages change but the problem is still there. I tried reseting the brush and PS preferences. Tried other brushes too of course. Tried reinstalling and even using another version of photoshop. So I think it might have something to do with the file settings but I don't know what

I painted the dress as black wit 100%, then gray on the breasts with 100% and was trying to smooth out to give the round shape there.
But I'm almost sure there is some techinical problem here.
New layer doesn't work and if just paint over it with full opacity it leaves random patches of unpainted areas. If I release the mouse and paint over again then it does paint the missed patches.
The strokes are also heavily pixelated (and I made sure to uncheck all brush options, select brush and normal mode)

Thanks anon, I love your explanation.

Got any books or websites you could point me to that helped you learn this history?
>>
>>346718
thank you. I learned most of it from Meggs' History of Graphic Design (it's pretty easy to find online). it's a big book but it has a section on '80s postmodern design and it's not very long.
also, here's a decent (but not great) short vid about Memphis style: https://youtu.be/TCI8lPvr6SM . it should be ok for a quick intro, but it reduces the '80s to just Memphis, while omitting other big influences. also it's pretty shallow and doesn't really explain much about the style.

>UV Mapping. UV Mapping is the process by which a two-dimensional image is wrapped onto a three-dimensional object.

Is used mostly for games or for cg characters, if you want to paint your 3d model you can also search for zbrush polypaint or mari 3d

my fucking question is not about how to uv unwrap
>>
>>346895
it is since that's how that image you posted is generated, usually they polypaint again using mari3d or zbrush and when they unwrap the texture it gets deformed like that, from there a lot of times they retouch it on photoshop but only after its generated and they will never use an existing photo unless its for reference.

>>
>>346939
As >>346958 said, you will need Ae
How time consuming it will be will entirely depend on the footage but you will have to create an adjustment layer that changes the color (HLS for example), mask it so that it affects just the hair and animate said mask through your footage.
Again, it depends on your footage but you might be able to create a gradient map (by fucking with threshold, levels and maybe even keylight) instead of going roto-tool or manually animating that mask.

Cheers mate

I am looking to buy the physical copy now, it looks like a great reference.

Got any idea on whether or not it is worth it to shell out extra cash for the newest edition? I sourced a nice, cheap copy from 2006, but it is 2 editions outdated. Got any opinions on that?

Regardless, thanks for pointing me towards this book
>>
>>346994
Don't know for sure, I have 5th edition from 2011 from libgen.io. You can DL it if you're uncertain about spending on that paper copy.
I made a quick research and from what I see the differences between editions aren't big. The newer editions have added very short new chapters about design for mobile and newer developments in design since 2006. Also they add more chapters about regional design, such as Spain, China, Middle Eastern typography, etc., but to be honest I never was interested in those, and they don't feel essential. All in all the newer material is either short or not very important.
However, I've seen people on Goodreads complaining that the 4th edition was set in sans-serif font, but that's pretty subjective, and I myself don't really care. In case you wonder, the 5th edition is set in serif, and the 6th one is in sans-serif again.
Otherwise, the editions seem mostly the same, some design changes here and there and some different images.

Wasn't sure where to ask this so hopefully this is a good place.
I work for my county's parks and rec department and they asked me to design a logo for the department.
They want to use the design for a sign in front t of the building and possibly t-shirts.
If it's going to be used on a large sign, does it need to be in a very high resolution so it's not upscaled?
I've never done graphic design stuff before so any information would be appreciated.
>>
>>347060
>does it need to be in a very high resolution so it's not upscaled
only if you are working with raster graphics.
you want to do a logo, you want to do it in a vectorial format (use Ai/inkscape).
Vectors can be upscaled and downscaled with no quality loss because they don't hold info of every pixel but of the path from different points. Fonts work this way.

you can also look here, there is usually someone who will give a nice design for a relatively cheap price.

I'd just keep it the same. Just in case I'd check it by eye.

that's unfortunate but sometimes it can be this way. you can try to simplify the shape or adjust angles by hand but otherwise I don't know much else you could do.
>Whats the main focus for photoshop?
that's a weird question. Photoshop is for editing and manipulating raster images—photos, drawings, mockups and pretty much everything else. While it does have some vector tools, it is preferable to use Illustrator for vector because it offers you more possibilities and control.

In the past people were fine with that. I think there's no other board for that, and it's relevant to the topic, so you can go ahead

Do colleges teach you how to use all the graphic design programs or do you study it yourself? I'm thinking of going to college for graphic design soon and don't know if I should start studying now or wait until I have to study whatever I'm going to learn in class.

My magic wand tool has fucked up seemingly over night.
In the document I'm working in, it acts like it has anti-aliasing turned off.
In test documents, it's leaving behind some shit.
I've reset preferences, reset tools, and this issue is persisting over two different versions of photoshop. I have no idea what is going on.

If I have a image which is just a big soft black brushstroke and try to select any of the black with the magic wand, it'll select the entirety of the document, regardless of tolerance. This only happens if the rest of the layer is transparent, though.

So, not strictly a drawing, but a design question
I'm trying to come up with a written system to make a type of ''idea map'' where I lay down thoughts and mark the relationships between them
It helps me map out a situation, and how to procede to attain an objective, or see how everything is relationed
I want to make it really compact and intuitive, but I realize I know jackshit about using visual cues to transmit information
There's gotta be a book that talks about that, but I honestly can't seem to find it

If anyone knows something about this subject, transmiting clear information with anything you can draw on a paper
>inb4 words
on a visual way, you'll be of so much help

I am wondering about the best way to make an image look as though part of it were under a magnifying glass. I know I can just warp something under photoshop, but that doesn't seem to work so well. Is there a better way?

Not exactly what you want, but try Blur Gallery -> Tilt-Shift

Designed a logo for my Garden Machinery company.

Why is it so bad? How do I fix it and make it good?
>>
Is knowing how to draw good neccesery in graphic design world? i just bought new graphics tablet and learning beginner stuff
>>
>>351674
You should know how to mock-up shapes and draw up very simple concepts at the very least, but no need to actually be good at it.

Knowing shading and perspective is quite important imo, so I'd focus on learning that first.
>>
Has anybody ever tried using one of these? Need something portable and can't afford a tablet
>>
>>351674
>necessary
not
but it's an invaluable skill that will make your life a lot easier and your work a lot better.
maybe Loomis and shit is a little to complex to begin with but at least take a look at the basics of character construction with Preston Blair or something cartoonier and simpler.

>>351680
no idea, maybe >>>/ic/ knows more about it.
I had a Genius tablet long ago though and it was the absolute worst.

Web designer bros help. How do you guys go about hosting clients websites?

Should I host them all in one plan with unlimited domains? Should I charge them yearly?

Or should I just help them get their own hosting? The problem is that most of my clients are not tech-savvy at all so they may just look for another game willing to host it for them.

The problem with the first one that everyone point out is that if something were to happen to the website, people will call me. Which happened to me only once. (but it wasn't even my hosting, they were using their own) But hasn't happened to me much at all and I could charge them.

I think the best option is always ask them if they want their own domain and hosting, and if they want me to handle it. I'll just host them.

Why don't you

ask your friends

over at redit?

>>351694
I thought the idea of you controlling the web domains is that if they want more work done they'll come to you, and if they go somewhere else you be arsy and don't give out user and passwords, well that's my understanding of web designers

I'm sure this question has been asked numerous times here, but I'll go ahead with it. With a graphic design degree and a few years experience in the field, can I use this knowledge in any other field that pays more and is more future-proof? I'm toying with getting into interactive design, but I was wondering if anyone know of any other outlets that I could use the skills learned in graphic design in.

I sometimes feel like I made a fatal flaw in pursuing this career...

UI design seems nice (I know nothing about it though)

Motion graphics are an easy transition from regular /gd/ and it usually pays better.

Any not poor fags have a copy of the After Effects extension Motion 2?
No way in hell im paying $20 for a damn extension

>calling plugins extensions
You can find it on cgpeers but I would stick with the graph editor in your place, more control of interpolation and less "let's move this slider and affect something I won't be able to control in the future"

How to produce this bleed effect?
>>
Any MacFag can post a zip with all the fonts included in the system with the latest update? Or at least the San Francisco font, please.
Thanks in advance.
>>
>>352181
that, my friend, is pixel sorting.
You can find a processing script there:

You can also try the wind effect on photoshop. its shitty but it can get somewhat close
