Why are you doing page layout in Photoshop?

Oh, wait, it's 4chan.

>>441105
I'm not finalizing the layout.
I was really only experimenting with the colors. You can see on the layer tab there are hidden layers that I was messing around with.

I dig it! especially the colored version. the font choice is also very fitting. reminds me of the pan am logo.

here are some minor ideas on what could be tweaked a bit. not saying any of my (very slight) changes are definite improvements. but maybe there is an adjustment or two that you enjoy. I tried enhancing the impression of movement, but on the other hand comparing these two I am not even sure that is such a good thing.

I'd use InDesign. Because using a page layout app for page layout is what you do, dummy.
I'd explain why it's important, but it's obvious you're not a designer, and never will be one. So don't sweat it, NEET.

The current one is a copied and pasted stock photo. They were probably scammed by some dumb nigger designer.

Mine is symmetrical, modular and has character(doesn't look like a yawning lion and my lion is aggressive).

It's already circular thus already works as a badge unlike the previous one that require circles and text, allowing it to be used more wherever.

Introducing more shades of color to the team's identity and codifying black(which has been in use by Simba for a while) to the club's identity.

While that may be true, I'm not really sure if companies really care that much to check if their logo gets uploaded to a Swiss letterset embellishing forum, much less the designers who post on it.
If it were something like say, designing for Arsenal, I might understand, but "Simba Sports Club"? Really?

>I'd use InDesign
kek, lmao even
>>
>>441586
That's freaking cool dude, did you illustrate or was it all photoshop? I'm interested
>>
>>441866
use higher quality images - there are free databases like pixaby that you can use
>>
>>441896
I do that lol. Although I've also had colleagues who didn't so it's not something you have to do.
It's just comfier for me to draw something first before I trace it into a vector. It's much more fluid to turn a figure I'm currently imaging with a pencil over a computer input. But do whatever works for you.
>>
>>441900
Thanks, honestly computer is better for me but if that's not available I'll use pen and paper, thing is I can't draw for shit so it just feels so uncomfortable to me
>>
>>441897
What's wrong with inDesign?
>>
>>441902
Don't get me wrong, it's great for editorial design and I prefer working with it over Illustrator for text-heavy designs, it really is simply better for that, but anything involving
"elements" rather than text bodies is something I'd rather handle with vectors in Illustrator. Illustrator even comes with alignment focused tools like guides, bleed, and indesign-like column-row divisions in a single click. Having all three programs open and switching to the best one for the job is the way I work and saves me time and wasted effort that would be spent trying to do something in IDD that I'd shit out in 5 seconds using AI
>>
>>441904
wtf it really makes no sense to me why you would even mention this.
nobody ever created a logo in indesign.

due to the light rim around the subjects in the photographs, the white versions are definitely better.
personally I like the black and white version the most, since it appears most tidy of them all. but I think that for reasons of wanting to draw attention to the poster actually the colored version (white) is best.

overall decent posters. tho you should work more on readability. you are lacking a higher sense of structure, which makes reading and understanding its contents unneccessarily tedious.

Its kind of hard to figure out what's going on in the logo. Once you figure it out it looks great but it takes some time. The bigger the logo, the harder it will be to see, i think.

depends on what the goal is.
different settings and prerequisites do indeed inform the approach.
also (and to be very frank) my brain works differently in these instances. so my route is also depending on how I feel, or what mental mode (mood?) from experience I consider more productive in the individual case.

but to give a more concrete answer as you would expect it; overall it is primarily digital sketching for me that directly ties into the following digital workflows. I am much quicker exploring ideas in ps than I am on paper. allthough admittedly also not equally as sharp.
either way I rarely end up with something that contains more of the original idea than the rough concept.

InDesign's ideal for brochures, books, magazines, etc. Complicated or large layouts..

pretty much just trying to understand what makes good references work and experimenting off that. a good grasp on modernist principles like hierarchy, contrast, grid systems is key, even if you end up doing trendier contemporary stuff. I follow the likes of metahaven, timothy luke, tim lindacher, braulio amado, alex mccullough, noah baker, lion sauterleute, lucas hesse, anna mills, lucy harmony grimes. a good source of references are music labels with consistent aesthetics like pc music, ad93 and ig pages like anothergraphicdotorg

Cool! This is really good use of form and color, you obviously have a knack for design. If you are open to critiques: I would suggest playing around with your composition. This is arguably the hardest part of graphic design (at least for me). I always “finish up” a piece, post it to 4chan or twitter or whatever, and then look at it and realize I should have resized my fonts or something. In your case I would give the ‘DEATHDOME 1998’ some room to breathe (move it up, and resize the center image of the woman to be a bit smaller) But this is all just nitpicking either way. Good job I hope you keep at it and post more stuff

Feels like global-homo if you ask me. If your looking for good refs try art deco sports posters. I'd try giving it a few spray fades to reduce your color and decrease the vertical symmetry while simplifying the geometry (like decreasing the hair stripes and aligning them with the curve of the skirt)

Try designing the inside too! With an A4 printer you can print out and properly bind an A5 book. Picking up some royalty free content from Project Gutenberg and typesetting it is a great way to hone print skills.

Are you Windows or Mac? There are a few open source type design softwares that are available for both but the paid versions are much more serviceable. Start with a trial of Fontlab or Glyphs (if on Mac) and upgrade to the light versions if and when needed. Glyphs also has fantastic tutorials on their website related to the production of fonts.

The descender/terminal on the /y looks very strange, I’d transform this into a more conventional ‘schoolbook’ /y. The bottom stroke of the letter should be flattened to be parallel to the baseline. The top left stroke can connect to the righthand one slightly above the baseline (zoom into Helvetica’s /g and see how the bowl is rased above the baseline.)

idk. maybe.
on the one hand it is fine.
on the other hand I do have some issues with it.

call me a misogynist, but I would definitely put the brides name above the grooms name.
also I think the sizes of the different elements (texts, images, cards and all the stuff) isn't quite balanced in size and tone. - for one I prefer less *loud* designs anyway, but I don't think my taste to be the main problem here. to me all the relations between these elements are a bit random and uncoordinated.
colors.
shapes.
sizes.
I do not really feel satisfied by their interactions.

so there you go. you wanted opinions. here is mine.

Good thing to do. I knew more bt photoshop than someone who would have done a course learning the basics doing this. Those you will get easily then anyway. Layers are important, best get your ass some overview about them; how they interact and what the different modes are.

Curves then pretty much do all the jobs for color/lightning adjustments.

How do I attach unique file names automatically using variable Datasets?

I have hundreds of unique product images with variable text of the model name / description included in the image but when I export the Data set it will only save as the original project name. I can’t seem to figure out an action automation to copy the text within the image to then change the project name to the corresponding text within.

It would be amazing if it could just pull the new file name from the CSV film column.

I really appreciate the help bros, labelling manually sucks ass.

>Alternative 2 applications
The use of the shape of the countries and the globe behind it is inconsistent where the initial logo has both, colored application does away with the globe and keeps the countries in positive, white background application uses countries in negative and brings back the globe, black background application removes the globe once again.

Is this a legal way to apply logos? Asking because I'm facing a similar situation with a face-silhouette based logo where the application on a black background looks horrendous if inverted. I'm considering resolving it the same way you did here, but it feels off to do so. Haven't done this before where the actual shape of a logo differs from one application to another. Would appreciate it a lot if someone can give me their input on this matter.

A while ago an /a/non wanted pic related without the watermark it had. I kind of wanted it as well, so I said to myself "how hard can that be". Turns out, it is only hard at the beginning, once you remember what tool you need and where they are, it is just really fucking tedious. Keep in mind I never did much on Photoshop, only cropped images or done a meme or some quick shit like that. I still have no clue what 90% of the tools it has do. With all this said, took me 10 hours to do it (in 2 days), and I'm not even satisfied with the result to be honest. I just cba fixing every little detail.

I don't really use /gd/ so not sure if this goes here:

I got a project I need to finish and my last Graphic Designer more or less bailed out on me to draw fetish porn. The templates are made, everything is in order and all you would need to do would be to copy/paste some information within the templates, maybe find and properly crop/compress some images you found on google. There is no catch here, I'm too busy to really do it myself and I got a little bit of cash I was saving away for something else anyways.
The gig is easy but it is tedious, so if you have nothing better to do over a day or two you might as well earn a few bucks.
I don't know where else to post this, but I figured what the hell, right?
Here is a throwaway email, contact me if you're interested. I will ask you to do a quick and simple design job once you respond to see if I'm not wasting my time, just be aware:

is alright. nothing special but fine, I guess.
it has a small shop crafty business feel to it, which is probably one of the most important aspects to it.

personally I wouldn't add as many small elements. either that or I would consider filling the whole background so that it starts looking like a texture. y'know make it part of a kind of corporate identity instead of trying to make it part of the "logo". also I would definitely not make half of the words ('my' and 'toys') merge with the background noise by putting them in the little images. at least 'toys' seems like an important word that kinda gets lost at a glance... maybe it is even more important than 'unique handmade', but that is very debatable.

the colors aren't terrible, but could be a lot better as well. I would recommend not picking them manually yourself, but eyedropping them from either a palette website or a professional finished design that you enjoy.

I like the font.

qrd on ur paper and grit textures? they look sick
>>
Don't want to make a new thread for this probably stupid question so asking here. What would you guys use to make those animated posters? Is it a combination of 3d modelling and after effects?

I use a lot of copyscan textures for grit. Just use the screen/multiply blend modes depending on the texture. Also using a good paper texture with wrinkles and folds as an overlay really goes a long way.
I put together some textures if you are interested. Some are paid and there is also a handy psd for giving pictures some really nice grit. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XGjw3Q1vi4nP06pqMGXkYmf2jVQ9Odxt/view?usp=sharing

Won't people smell shit in the bathroom from your kitchen.

I didn't want to create a thread for this, but can anyone tell me which text alignment is better for readability purposes or why am I too fucking dumb to know which one works best? (they both look weird to me to be honest, being a designer is tough)

you are so motherfucking stupid, wasting your and our time with half a centimeter of indentation!

the text isn't even vertically aligned with the rose bars and still you are worrying about fucking 5 millimeters?!
definitely the top one. now grow up and work for 10 minutes without asking for feedback, child.

hey /gd/ I don't want to make a new thread just for this so I'm going to ask here.
I'm a /co/rtoonist and I'm working on a mini comic, I'm in the thumbnail/storyboard stage right now.
I sketches the logo on top and then I released that graphic design in comics is stuck on its own conventions and styles so I decided I wanted to break from that so I made the logo on the bottom, the idea is still very rough and I just know I need advice from people who knows what they're doing.
I will get a vector program to do this stuff once I have to do the final design, for now I'm more comfortable sketching like this.
What do you guys think?

threw this together in a few minutes last night and i think it's a really good way to have realistic fallout-like maps and heavily stylized characters, showed it to brother and he said the characters look too slanted to the terrain, though i don't feel i could achieve the style i am going for if i accounted for perspective when it comes to characters. I'm shooting for them to look like very stylized icons and each character to be slightly different but mostly naturalistic. I originally intended to (and might still do) make stop-motion puppets and to rig a camera in the right perspective to animate puppets but idk that isn't "hard" per se but it's time-consuming especially for a videogame.
Maybe it just wouldn't work and i should instead have a highly relativized iconographic up-is-in-all-directions style but idk.
Maybe if i made the camera angle lower? I don't intend on the maps being too complicated and i intend on segmenting it so you can look behind occluded areas or just not using occluded areas.
