Hey guys! I just started my new job at a heating and cooling company as a marketing assistant. Im still in highschool and I have little design knowledge (currently in highschool). I created this price sheet for my company's products and was looking to get some feedback/constructed criticism!

It depends" What is the "business proposition"?
Are you wanting to get sales by price or by need? What do competitors look like? Are you looking too utilitarian?
>>

2. Im also not sure what you mean by price or need?

Is there anyone on /gd/ who is into UI/UX/IxD design?

I feel like most of the threads here are about graphics design (which is clear), but it is also an interesting field.

I am a UX/UI designer. Have seen one or two threads about it one here. However, it's harder to talk about it because all of the work is usually embedded into a project that already has design guidelines or needs to work with pre-existing technical stuff that you can, most of the time, not really post on here in full detail.
I mean I like talking about it but UX is something that is really tied to all the surroundings and it's really a hassle to make it all clear.
At least when you have a paid project. And there you have to sign NDAs most of the time. A pity, I guess.

I have a few questions about UX/UI design.
I'm thinking of transitioning from graphic design to UX/UI if becoming an editorial designer doesn't work out for me as I already have a small background in web design.

>What degree to you get to become UX/UI designer?
>What are general tasks a UX/UI designer has to carry out? Is it mostly designing or do you have to code/mockup code as well?
>What books/learning material would you recommend to someone transitioning from GD to UX/UI?

Thanks in advance.

I am a special snowflake... Wouldnt recommend going my way. I studied intermedia design. In theory, it is beautful. A little bit of everything and then you can truly find out what you are good at and focus on that, which is why i chose ux.
However, in the real world, people are shitting on my degree although I aced it.
Before any confusion arises, I am German so i dont know about the situation in the US. What I experienced is that people have no idea that you really need UX people who understand what code does but what design needs. Most people look for an IT guy for UX, which is like looking for a venture capitalist for your ethics committee. The worst problem with this world is that the higher ups are most of the time completely oblivious as well. I am not trying to scare you but I have yet to find a job that really suits me and where people dont mock me for "not having a real job". Which is funny because it is mostly marketing asshats who say that. If you have ever met someone working in marketing you will know why i expected you to laugh here. (Marketing is like the wolf of wallstreet with pennies at worst or don draper as a hipster at best)

Therefore I cannot really give you advice on how to get there. I might have done it wrong although I went to a really good university for the subject. I am still fucked tbqh.
The only thing I can tell you is once you have an opportunity to really work on something it is just awesome. You have to have a lot of empathy for the job and a general interest in making people's lives easier, regardless of who they are. But if you do, you can learn it all in no time because it will be important to you. You need to constantly ask "Would I want a solution that works like this? Would a black woman in a wheelchair feel the same way about it? Why/not?"

Tl;dr I would still recommend going to a good school just because there is too much bullshit out there but first research what the job market is looking for where you live.

I've seen hamburger menu icons made out of nested divs (then obviously css styles to look like hamburger menu icon)
Maybe you could try this.
But it's a lot of hassle for an ugly result if you don't mind my saying.

Hi /gd/, good morning.

Can anyone enlighten me about HTML, please?

I was given the task to modify my current job website, which was made on Wordpress. I found a HTML theme that I'm gonna edit with our info but we also have an online store and blog. I'm aware that we need and admin panel, so we can easily add products to the shop, posts to the blog, content to the site etc.
I never really got in touch with HTML, and I have this doubt: if I buy the theme and an admin panel theme, how is the link between them made?
Would it be easier if I just bought their Wordpress theme instead of HTML? It is more expensive but if it's gonna save me from some headache I think it's better.

Thanks!

my dude wordpress is set up so you just buy a theme and drop it into the CMS (which is what I assume you mean by admin panel)
as for the blog, wordpress is blogging software, and really I'd imagine you could just get shopify to work for your store.
>>
>>274831
yes, it's CMS!
we already have the shop and blog set up, it's just that our current theme is pure shit, I advised them to make a new website from scratch, but for now we're just buying a new theme
do you know if it's possible to edit the theme before publishing it? If I have to upload it and remove the old site white I live edit it it's gonna be a problem...

you get the idea here, they all have these color pallet and look
>>
>>274740
I'm not against drop shadows like many people are and I use them often enough, but these are bothering me somehow. My instinct says to lighten them but I know that may make the text harder to read if it blends into the background too much without that contrast. However, for a case like >>274741 I'd say you can keep it with that exact look just for the title "Commands" but something else should be done with the body portion of the info. Maybe lighten the color of the text so that the contrast the shadow provides is no longer a necessary crutch for legibility. Muh 2 cents.

What is this effect called?

and how can I do it?

Looks like a cheap "thermal vision" filter you'd find on instagram or some shit. There's probably a web-app that does it.

it's color cycling (aka palette shifting)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_cycling
>>
it's called colorama in after effects

How would you go about recreating this in photoshop? The noise can be added through the noise filter, but the color distortion looks like it may only be possible through an old VHS camera, can anyone help me?

Google tv color noise and blend multiple images in with erase tool high softness
>>
Split the RGB channels and move them a tiny lil bit, too.
>>
Not to sound like a total moron, but your best bet may be to display the pic on a monitor and take a picture of it with a camera. That's how the effect is actually made. If you needed to batch process images, show the images in a slideshow, and set your camera on timelapse.

>your title/logo is hard to read

>your intro text is cutting off without hyphenation. did you manually press the enter key a couple of times or something? enable justification
>previous work looks too similar and does not reflect 'as creative as possible'
>website/signature/banner design icons are not comfortable to look at, remove the drop shadow or make it darker
>available services are not represented in the previous work showcase
>you use the word 'we' in the first paragraph but then switch to 'my design' and 'contact me'. either present yourself as a person or a company

What's a fast way to transform the whole outline layer to an outline with 0 antialiasing, like just aliased. I want the black outline to be just like from MS paint, with no anti aliasing.

Push the black level way up.

re-trace it with the pencil tool and change the settings not to anti-alias

Looks like you did this shit in paint.

It looks like you didn't put any thought into it.
Or if you did, this was your first idea and thought it was so good that you had the skills to make it.

Next time, draw out some ideas and pick the best.
Why would you post this where clearly, professional designers :^) are hard at work?
>>
I agree with the first comment. I don't see any design concept. Please hand sketch 5-10 ideas post them and let us help you pick out the strongest idea. Keep working hard.

Somewhere between bad and shit.

The font is meme, the quality of the smoke both artistically and practically is absolute rage shit, and the godforsaken "grass" is beyond comprehension.
