This is how my boss "manages" layers. Getting into her files is an absolute headache.

This is disgusting.
I feel for you man.

At the very least you can just group it and get it all on one layer.
Though that doesn't always solve the problem.

keep it simple avoid modifying the text/font unless you actually made it from scratch and correct if i'm wrong but usually when you depict animals on your logo it means your product has animal ingredients on it. now here's some ideas first i would only use one line for the text so it's more memorable like this 'PurelyVegan' - notice how i remove the space between the two words so it reads as one, if you want some variation use a bold/black (family font) on only one of the words and probably you will want to try with all the text on lowercase so it becomes more friendly and modern. i do like the idea of animals on logos but i don't think your design could work well.

The problem is that you have drawn your line art with a soft brush. Soft brushes gradate from fill color to transparency on the edges. Try it with the pencil tool, which is a hard brush style, and it will not happen. But really, why are you doing that kind of art in photoshop? This should be vector.

this a line done with pencil and hard brush and the problem remains. is this really a "photoshop limit" kind of problem? i find it very strange.
i tried even with selection options but nothing.
i don't do it vector cause i never tried it, but i guess it's time to.

Getting close to college, been depressed as fuck for the last few months.

I really like graphic design, but all the freelancing pages I've browsed in the past as a hobby were crowded by indian fucks that shit more flat design than curry, and most of the deals I got were either scams or useless web currency.

I need something to remind myself why I'm pursuing this career, not really that interested in getting paid but in practice, even a book could do, or just general advice. Any ideas, /gd/?

Have I understood this correctly?

You enjoy designing and want to pursue it as a career, but are demotivated by the business aspect (i.e. overwhelming competition and shady clients), and so don't see how you can make a living?
>>
>>289034
Pretty much, yeah. It's pretty soon to worry about making a living, but stressed about not making the cut for freelancing if I ever need to do so. Have no idea of approaching it, or good sources.
>>
>>289035
I mean, you're still young and have a couple years before you actually have to worry but yeah, it is definitely something to think about. Making a living off Graphic Design in 2016 is hard.

I get two main impressions from your posts (tell me if you agree)
1. You don't have faith in your ability to become better than the competition.
2. You want the money to come too easily.

Both of these are mindsets that you can work on (with improving over time, with hard work and practice, with studying freelancer business, with Meditation, etc.), and that you HAVE to get rid of if you wanna be successful in GD. Nobody coasts their way into a comfortable living in this field.

he's been photoshopping himself into pics and we're asking for the original pic and i don't have photoshop to edit the backgrounds can anyone help?

This is like asking whether you should buy colouring books or actually learn the fundamentals of art and practice every day; which can be answered by a second question: are you a fucking child?

Wich one do you use on your daily work?

Recently I began a intership in a agency and I noticed almost everyone uses a tablet instead of the mouse. I've always worked using a mouse but it kept me wondering why is that. I mean even for photo retouching, web design or video editing they still use a tablet instead of a mouse.

Let me guess; they have shitty apple mice that make the cursor skitter even when moved slowly over an ideal surface.
>>
>>288668
Because they're hipsters. I've seen a YouTube video of a guy doing UI work with a pen display. It's absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary, if not even a handicap. Unless you use the brush tool a lot I see no reason for it. Instead, use a mouse with programmable buttons. Hotkeys are the best.

They actually have imac + apple keyboard + wacom intuos&bamboo + pic related.

or do you use Squarespace or Cargocollective or Readymag or Semplice?

ooobbvvviously just use squarespace.
>>
>>288460
Squarespace isn't that great for a designer, it's pretty bland stuff. I'd recommend Cargocollective. More of a gallery design suited to projects.

No, first
>use indesign instead of illustrator
>Increase lign height
>use bigger left margins. If this is going to be a booklet, the icons will fall off
>Use a color palette, the heading has purple and green, a color palette could be those colors and 80% opacity of those colors
>fonts and font sizes are pretty good
>>
>>288925
also consider using two columns, and leave room in margins for page numbers etc

Ok, so I'm interested in graphic design but I've never done anything of the like before and I'm wondering how does one start out. Do you just go with internet courses and books? Also how important is the ability to draw in gd? Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to self-teach it now, but if you haven't already thought of a plan on how to learn it might be best for you to go to just go to a class for it. There's a lot to Graphic Design and you can get lost along the way.
>>
>>288551
I would recommend going to school for it, only because when youre taking a course you'll be forced to do assignments youre not interested in and those will help you grow. You don't have to know ho to draw but it'll help tremendously if you can. GD is pretty broad if you give us the specific area you want to focus on that'll help us help you and shit.
>>
>>288583

yeah this pretty much sums up what I was going to reply.

it is possible to break into the field without formal training but its really hard and takes a lot of time and practice.

Hi /gd/

What music are you guys listening to when you're designing something? Or dont you guys listen to music at all while working on something?
Personally I like to listen to Nujabes, or something chill, can't work if it's something progressive. How bout you guys?

i just listen to talk shows or donald trump speeches while working on my shit
>>
I also like that sort of music. It's mostly medium paced instrumental stuff that I can pedal my foot to, but nothing I really have to focus on. Arkasia is a good example. If it is something that requires precision and isn't tedious though I'm ok with silence
