I know it might not strictly fall into the realm of graphic design. But I feel more grounded on the design part of the spectrum than the 3d side.
That being said though, I guess it might be hard to judge it from a /gd/ standpoint. Fuck I don't know. Just don't go too hard on me.

I remember seeing your little album thing on the album art thread.
A lot of your photos on both pages seem really big though. It makes it kind of hard to look at them without zooming out a bit.
What's there is pretty good though, I dig the light feel of them.

Looking for some help re client's and basically how to express that they're wrong and I'm not their lapdog.

Volunteering to do graphic design for an independent short film. Someone close to me wrote the script but director was planning on going ahead without a designer (stretched scaled images & Papyrus I shit you not, I stepped up to help out the person I care about because I want this to look as good as possible so they get noticed (hopefully anyway).

I've only been on board since last Thursday when the director phoned me and told me she needed an image for the crowd funding page with other social media images so I said no problem. The only images I had to work with were stills I could pull from the minute of footage already shot (at Dawn so very dark and very blue). I did my best and came up with something eye catching and with room to expand the identity further when it came to posters and other materials.

However, she and the producer agreed that it didn't suit their vision for the film (which they didn't explain to me, partly my fault because I didn't ask). That was fair enough, had a meeting, understood the look they wanted and spent a few hours today doing it (again, a small social media image just to set the tone a little).

Once again she's pushing back and wants something weak with a bad colour palette. They've already planned what the poster will look like which I've just been informed of and basically what they want is everything to look like the True Detective title sequence.

I'm going on vacation for a week tonight and need to email back before I leave. I'm concerned with how I'm being treated right now over something small – being told exactly what to do rather than being treated as a professional basically. I'm volunteering my time and I can only imagine what things'll be like later on.

Any tips on how to approach this? (image: director wants flames over everything)

tl;dr Clients being controlling on a project I'm volunteering for, advice?

So you haven't talked about your role in the team. You can do so now and if they are not happy with you taking a more decision based role then simply finish what you have already started and leave.
>>
Do you have any advice on phrasing or what to actually say that won't come across as defensive or rude?
>>
Set limits. I read this twice and both times thought 'walk away'. Mention you have other commitments and that you can't realistically do what they're asking for within the time you can freely volunteer. Make it about your commitments and that 'I'm afraid you're underestimating how much work this is'.

And then gradually get out by repeating that line. People start as they mean to go on. Tell them you have x hours a week for this (don't say 40!) and spend that much time on it. Honestly, it sounds like it is going to mean sleepless nights. Would you ask someone else to do what you know is required? Good luck.

Would you guys even consider it as a "logo" ??
Let's be honest: it's shit, right ?
Could anyone guess what this "website" is about, before actually checking it out ? Any tips for improvements ?

Start over from scratch. Don't use that font.

Personally I would hire a designer to draw a cute pile of flake soil with a cute bug on top of it.

Are you the international beetle forums guy?

>>285523

Not my logo (or website for that matter), but thanks for the idea.

It's true that a logo has a (relatively) big influence on the business ?
What "feelings" do you have if you see this shirty logo ? I personally think it looks too uneasy and to complex with all this pieces floating.

Hi guys. I like the font visible in the left side of the pic. It's called "MS Pゴシック", but if you visit the page from Linux, the font doesn't work. I guess that is only for Windows systems. Do you know a font with the same aspect whitout this problem?

It looks like Tahoma in a small pt to me.
>>
>>285190 Yeah, it's something similar. I will try to use it changing to font-weight property.

Thanks, I will be awake for anyones having another suggestion!

Bump. Trying to use Tahoma with a low value in font-weight makes no difference.

Hey I'm starting an instrumental prog band called SYNOPSIE we need a logo, anyone could do that for us please ?

Hey guys I just graduated high school and I noticed most of you are terrible at art and design.

I was wondering, do most of you have jobs under this field? Need an answer for clarification so I know I can easily get into this industry based on the shitty work done here.

A little about myself:
>used photoshop for three years, illustrator for one, know all the hotkeys now
>know less about the other adobe programs like indesign, after effects, bridge, etc.
>have some knowledge about typesetting, worked with a letter press at a summer college program at a design school
>sketching, painting, and illustrating since I was ten under a professional artist
>taking the first year off of college, had 3.8 gpa and 4-5 AP scores, 21 ACT, 2320 SAT (took before the change)

Thank you!
Also, what schools should I be applying to?

Century Gothic is my fontfu.

How do you guys draw anime art? Do you use Photoshop or Illustrator? If not what program? And how would you recommend someone start out designing their own characters

We don't.

There's programs for drawing but I don't think you're on the right board to ask how we "draw anime art". Go to /a/ or something like that.

Also programs I use for doodling logo's
>Manga studio
>Adobe flash
>Good old pen and paper

I use Krita.

Anyone got any suggestions for portfolio websites other than behance or dribble? Been checking a few out but I can't find one that I like.

>Squarespace
Basic plans are too limited for the high price.
>Format.com
Too few templates and complicated interface.
>Semplicelabs.com
No free trial or monthly subscriptions makes it too risky to even check out.
