What does /gd/ think of the album cover I designed. Feedback v welcome.
Anyone know how to make vaporwave video edits, a simpsonwave type of thing? Mine fucking suck
Does being black or jewish have any adverse affects in this industry? Thanks /gd/
A shitty portfolio has adverse effects in this industry. And shit people skills.
If you're black, you might be expected to do hip hop/urban decay aesthetic work, and would probably surprise certain employers if your style is really minimum. That's happened before to the black designers I know. But they've never had a problem finding work.
This ain't your backyard, hayseed.
post those logos that are just strokes of genius by whoever made them
(be sure to name the person who made it if you know)
i'm new in logo design, anyadvice?
I Have created a LLC called Eyecon Forever and would like to see what kind of propaganda 4chan can generate. Eyecon Forever stands for Success, Passion, Influence, and Power.
I googled your brand and I had some extra time on my hands. I just hope this isn't so sort of initiation into the Illuminati.
can anyone identify this art style?
It's not even real Pop-Art. It's more like the shitty iPhoto Filter called Pop Art, does not even have a real stencil of the person but a botched one. And the size of the person is off as well. OP, did you use iPhoto and think it would be a good idea?
Hi /gd/, I'm creating some type that looks like a silly straw for a client. So far, I'm pretty unhappy with what I'm making in Illustrator - I think realism would be best suited for the design. But I'm not sure how to achieve it.
I found this image, how do you think the designer achieved this effect? Any suggestions for how to do this greatly appreciated.
I would draw it out in illustrator then bring it into photoshop and mess with transparencies and layer effects. You would probably have to paint in some of the lighting yourself though. I don't know how to C4D though : (
How do I do this?
Do you think the person just used the pen tool to create the 3d effect or used one of the effects that Adobe provides? In case of effect, how would one go ahead and approach this?
Is this bulging a bit or is it just an optical illusion of the shadow/3d effect?
The perspective seems a bit off, so I wouldn't say it's the Illustrator's 3D extrude effect alone. Could be, but I doubt it.
It could be a blend of two objects with Specified steps set to 9001, the first object being the size of the text and the other one being behind the first one with like 50% width and 40% height.
OR, it could be just a careful pen tool job. This is most likely.
The bulging is an illusion and comes from the
Looking for feedback and suggestions on an 80s style logo I'm working on. I think I have some fairly authentic looking text, but I'm unsure what sort of thing should go behind it to bring it all together. I know many 80s logos used simplistic shapes and so on, but somehow that makes it even trickier for me to decide.
Just put some stacked triangles behind it.
That's what I'd do.
Obviously do them better than my shitty paint example.
Maybe just a magenta one and a cyan one on top. White in the middle maybe.
Go crazy with some lasers.
I do 80s design a lot, and it's worth it to go way over the top. Even really kitschy sometimes.
How does a good Flyer look, to be an effective promotion tool? I have to design a some Flyer promoting a scientific convention aimed at students and phDs and frankly said, I've never done this before. I need some inspiration.
Also for your information, I'm just a student myself, I won't get any revenue out of it. It's entirely voluntary. I would be therefore really thankfull for any hints or tips in how to make an scientific event as appealing as possible.
I have a svg in inkscape that is 30cm x 8cm. I need to print it at 300cm x 80cm.
I guess I should just give the svg to the print-guy and since it's his work he should do everything,
but since he's quite old and not very good at his job I thought I could just send him the correct
png or bmp and be done with it.
I can't figure out how to do this correctly. Of course if I change the dpi I get higher pixel resolution, but with the same cm dimensions.
Thank you anons
yeah that was my "last" resort, I had thought there was something related to the export.
Mostly because I'm afraid of fucking up something during the rescale (positions etc.)
I guess that "group-ing" every element in the page and then just mutiply by 10 its dimensions will do the trick?
Hey /gd/, sorry if this is not the right board for this thread.
I'm curious about a style lots of lo-fi homemade-ish music releases' artwork have. It's what you can see here http://www.raccoo-oo-oon.org/np/index.html (scroll a bit until you get to the tapes) or in pic related. This sort of two-color, old photocopy style. Is it a printing style/technique? Why does the artwork have this very distinct old-school "style", regardless of the color choices? Any insight is appreciated.
it's both aesthetic choice and an economical one. there's a good chance lots of those covers are silk screened, which is a cheap way to do color prints (but limits you to one or two colors, since each layer needs to be hand printed)... while the technique is similar acros those tapes, I'd say the imagery has a lot of vareity and feels very contemporary. But the printing method is almost like an instagram filter, unifying them with the same effect. Lots of those images were composed on a computer and probably printed onto acetate for the silkscreen. also a lot of the imagery being sampled comes from old movies and advertisements...
how do you guys stay motivated when working at home? I love graphic design but can't stay motivated to work on my portfolio. Then when I sit down and work on it I get overwhelmed and feel like I can't multitask projects.
I know its like a subjective question but do you guys have any strategies that can keep me on track?
Having a clear goal helps.
When I do work for clients, I honestly spend all day on it. I reach that state of zen where I cant stay away.
When I'm working on personal projects, I find it hard to have motivation. I'll start up the program, stare at it for a few minutes, then close it.
Of course I get those moments where I'm full of motivation and knock out an entire personal project in one sitting, but it's rare.
Having a fire under your ass really helps you stay motivated. Or at least it does for me.
