Alright, guys, I'm a little stumped here. I've used the exact render settings that a lot of different sites claim are the best, but no matter what I do, I can't seem to get (mostly) flawless Youtube videos. So I've come here to ask you guys for some help understanding render settings directly. I need to know the best settings for rendering 1080p 60 fps / 1080p 30 fps videos on Youtube. I see videos with nearly flawless quality on Youtube all the time.

>Does the length of the video affect the optimal settings?
>Is the filesize of a video that looks crisp and clean (after uploaded to Youtube) generally enormous?
>Is H.264 a no-go?

I'm going to follow their Motion Design curriculum as a self study experiment.
Will I get guud? Anyone ever done this? Who's an alumni?

Don't do it unless you have money to burn and/or plan on moving to someplace in California, NYC, etc.

The curriculum and teachers are great, but the price is ridiculous.
misread your post...

yeah, you should learn quite a bit by following along.
SCAD might be better.

something I did for school. Still a work in progress of course. I'll probably make the colours flashier. Is it readable? Are there fonts that look like what I've drawn?

Man that's a solid foundation you have built there. I don't have a ton to add - but I will say this - I have built fonts with similar "brush logic" to yours and I have a feeling it's going to be too thin and sharp to the eye - although that can be addressed down the road.
Is it hard to build a font? I'm a complete noob in graphic design

Hey /gd/ can you help me find a texture in the background of this image? I need it for a website, how do i even search for this? What is it called?

Thanks in advance.

Padded leather wall

do you know how i could make a repeating texture out of padded wall?

you could find one in real life and take a high quality res picture then manipulate the image and use it as a pattern. or use a stock photo i suppose.

besides illusltrating or gradient mesh in illustrator, thats probably the best route I'd suggest to go.

Ah damn, my friend just asked me to make her a tattoo. She wants me to make permanent art to put on her skin. I'm fucking nervous.

I didn't know where else to put this topic. And tatttoos are sort of like graphic design on a human body.

better make it count.
go to a /fa/ tattoo thread
do your best, don't put too much detail, and most importantly, tell her it isn't your job and that she should let the tattoo artist make it better if he thinks you fucked up, he knows how tattoos age.

NBA season has started up.

Which NBA team has the best logo?
Which has the worst?

What does /gd/ think of the Sacramento Kings' new logo? (on the right)
The old one reminded me of hockey for some reason, the new one seems generic, idk.

Check out past and present logos for various NBA and ABA teams here:

pic related is my favorite logo
>never changed it
>never had to

truly timeless
The small inside part of the antlers form a basketball as well.

I like this logo but I feel with a bit of tweaking it could be truly great. I don't like the colors or the typography. I don't think I could win any arguments over the colors because I get that they are going for a woodland type scheme to compliment the buck. I still find it somewhat unappealing. The type is awful tho.

Find and share sites with free to use stock photos, videos, motivations, vectors, guides and infos, fonts or whatever.

If you want to share your own pictures or designs make sure to specify whether you're okay with it being used by others or not.

I am using the font Bookman Old Style for a Book Cover project on DesignCrowd.com. The font comes with Windows and is made by Monotype. Their website says following: "Bookman Old Style is a trademark of The Monotype Corporation and may be registered in certain jurisdictions." Could someone explain to me what it means and if I'm allowed to use it for the Book Cover? (I'm sorry if this is a common question, I have no experience with working for other people)

just realised i should have posted it in the book cover threat sorry
You have a fundamental misunderstanding of trademarks vs copyright. Trademark law protects the name Bookman Old Style from being used as a name of a similar work. Copyright dictates how you can use it. You'll have to look up what its license is, but from memory, most Windows builtin fonts have some sort of royalty free license as long as you're not distributing the font data itself.
>most Windows builtin fonts have some sort of royalty free license
srsly? Bookman (and quite a few others) are licensed for use in Windows from Monotype, which certainly dont mean you can use them license-free on a book cover..

Either buy it, prob $30 single weight for non-publishing use, $60 if publishing (because, kikes) OR just do what any sane person would, Google 'Bookman Style free font' - making sure, your getting a rip off (slightly modified) font that has a FREE USE license, from a FREE FONT site and not some pirate copy of the original font file. Use that instead (or pay up..) - you good.

Ok gd, bit of background information. I'm a freelance illustrator with a degree in design, throughout my degree I specialised in illustration so even though my degree says 'graphic design' on it, I'm a pretty sub-par designer.

With that being said I'm bored of working freelance and have applied to a design job at a school - schools generally don't have great graphic design anyway so I see it as an entry level design job.

Backstory aside, here is my issue - specialising in illustration and being a freelance illustrator I don't actually have any decent design work to put into a portfolio, if I end up getting an interview I'm probably gonna need to take one along so here's my question - can you guys give me some advice, prompts or (let's be honest here) shortcuts to creating a quick portfolio (say a week minimum a month maximum) that'll impress people who don't know a lot about design?

TLDR - Applied for a design job at a school, don't have a portfolio. What are some really quick, easy designs I can do to impress some school administrators?
11 posts and 4 images submitted.
"Quick and easy" designs will never be impressive.
OP here, I think you need to bear in mind that I'm not being interviewed by other designers, I'm not looking to create new, unique, cuttings edge designs that can win awards or get me a job at a marketing company that rakes in millions.

I'm applying to a school, it's a basic day job on a basic salary that requires a basic designer. I just wanted some suggestions on quick ideas to put together a solid portfolio that shows I'm competent - not something that will necessarily impress you or any other professional designer.

Which one looks the best:
Row A, B or C?

And why does it look the best?
27 posts and 6 images submitted.
I would say the Beetle A and the C are okay, but get rid of that ugly yellow, what is this btw?

The ugly yellow needs to be there.
And to answer your question it's a exotic giant beetle called Hercules beetle, or more specific Dynastes hercules hercules.
