Hello /gd/,

I am working on a website for my final year project (about UI design) and I'd like some tips from you since my mentor is useless.

I will show you a few pages of the current version of a site (it's a movie news portal basically) and would like some opinions on it.

The problem with me is that I spend WAY too much time on things that are probably not so important - my workflow is very flawed so I'd like to ask you how much time do/would you usually take to design something like this?

I can put together everything in a few days, but after that I keep rethinking every detail and constantly changing things like fonts and colors, while I'm not even finished with all elements and coding.

The current trouble I'm having is that every time I see something new I like on the internet during research, I feel the need to strip down everything and do it all over again. This is a third bigger reiteration and currently I'm still afraid and wondering if a fixed left navigation with a sidebar could work well (since the trend is a classical top navigation).

What I'm trying to achieve is somewhat of a dashboard look - you can see something similar here:

http://time.com/

and here:

https://www.indy100.com/article/the-best-of-amazons-hilarious-usersubmitted-movie-reviews--e1EH4QzGvl

By this I want to separate the content and make articles look cleaner and more readable, while still having obligatory featured posts on the side because of the clickability.

Also, the other key thing I am trying to figure out how to do properly is a giant front header with a featured story, which focuses the eyes of users on it (something like a front page of a magazine is my goal). I have tons of images with different color schemes and layouts but I can't keep the personality and vision of a project and that is driving me insane and I'm just wasting time.

So any feedback would be appreciated.

And here is a previous version, but I felt like it is too generic. Ultimately, I guess you can see, is that I'm still trying to go with more or less neutral colors, and was trying to convey a luxurious look with blacks and champagne colors, but am slightly changing the direction - again, due to my indecision.

What do you think I should focus on at this point? I won't post more examples because they are too similar now, but I'm stuggling with a direction at this point.

I don't like it in the pic you posted because I don't think something like a hand should be illustrated in flat design.

I'm not opposed to flat color design for something like icons or a logo.

I was considering finally putting up my own website as well, but I can't decide between my real name or inventing a brand/company name for myself to hide behind it. Does it look more professional if you use your real name?

How do I get into UX/UI?

I've got a degree in graphic design and have been in agencies for the past three years doing a range of print, digital and motion.

I enjoy the digital aspects the most and definitely want to specialise in it. Although it seems that today you can't simply just be a 'digital designer' and you need to have some knowledge of UX.

Is it something you can just pick up/learn about as you go along, or does it need a more intensive course? I've been using Sketch/Invision for the past year if that helps.

I just feel like UX is a bit of a buzzword because it's not like I don't design websites without the user journey in mind. We all make sure things are intuitive, accessible, legible etc.

UX is more involved in making sure the website is functional and accessible. It's all about user testing and lots of refining and optimisation.

New here on /gd/, so sorry if this is off topic to the board.

I'm a graphical art student from Denmark, and I have to make an assignment soon about analyzing American design. My teacher said that I specifically need to find some American analyzing models, but I'm having a hard time finding any.

If any of you could help, I'd like something in a similar form to pic related. It's a danish model called the "syringe" model. The basic premise is that whatever message you're trying to send, goes your medium, and how you choose to use the medium.

Just replace the head

>>289110
You need to isolate the editing area with a clipping path, then make selection, inverse selection and start working on the layer bellow (there will be a hole whre his head is(
>>
>>289110
You cannot edit it without damaging the circle due to the gradients and glow of the circle. Either find an image of the circle to add on to a photo or do a hard trace/magnetic selection or path to selection (which will take more time if you wish it to be easier to edit in the end) of the circle, then harden the edges and redo the glow yourself.

Sorry for the throwaway thread but I'm annoyed at my own ignorance and wanted to ask quick.

As the pic shows, I want the eyebrow to cut 'under' the hair, I want the strands to fall on top of it.

I've tried just erasing the pieces of the eyebrow that should be hidden but that results in 'blob' like shapes between the strands of hairs, not a uniform line.

I've tried grouping and joining the strands of hair (They're separate lines) and then using the Pathfinders and shape modes (Unite,Minus Front etc) to try and influence the brow.

Very new to illustrator, sorry if this question is basic as fuck, I don't really lurk here. Thanks in advance for any help.

You could just add a white background to your strands of hair. And of course put them on top of the eyebrow in the layer panel.
>>
>>288690
Can't you just give the hair a fill and put the eyebrow below it?
>>
>>288692
>>288693

My aim was to have a flexible bit of line-work to do what I want with, It's just a personal project. So having a white fill for the hair would slightly ruin the thing I'm going for.

*But* if I were to do that: the hair is a messy collection of lines, do I just select all the lines, 'group' and then select fill?
