You are trying to make something look analog using digital fonts. Why not making that PLUTO font yourself by hand and import it?

I was tasked by a friend with remaking some vintage shirts from a bar in his home town. I tried the font identifying websites, no dice. Thanks for any help.
it's what's on the inside that counts.
function > form, end of story.
What's the point of this thread OP?
Debunking the mac meme?
Also, your pic is retarded. Nothing is even close to the size it should have and that perspective.
Love the fact that the case has core 2 duo and win7 stickers
I'll bite the bait.
If anyone knows of a laptop trackpad as smooth as the one on macbooks I'm interested.
I've been wanting to switch back to pc for some time now but I can find the same ergonomy.
Anyone have any input on this picture I made?
anyone using processing for fun/professional purposes?
little game I made in processing that sorta borders on gd
I've been thinking about sending out a VERY GOOD Microsoft Powerpoint presentation to different marketing and graphic design places in my area. Is this a good idea? Something short that can fit on a floppy disk so maybe five or so pages. I also wanted to add in some extremely sick slide transitions and the "boing" noise when the slide goes.
Thoughts? Will I stand out from the crowd in this highly competitive and cut-throat market?
professional agencies use Macs, which cant run Microshit files
professional agencies dont use computers from the 80s, so they cant even read your files
I made this a long time ago and I forget why.
Rate it. I give it a 3/10
Why is this board so shitty? I feel like none of you actually work in the (graphic) design industry at all.
How on earth could any of us verify that we do to any degree of satisfaction that we're not cat fishing or trolling, without opening ourselves up to spam or abuse?
And more importantly, who cares? We're shitty because design molds us to be through disappointment, resentment, jealousy, and overwhelming feelings of inadequacy, regardless of actual skill level or demonstratable merit.
This is about design in general. The last years I've been to many seminars and courses about interface design, industrial design, etc. and every single one of them tought me that the Dieter Rams/Braun design as well as Apple design is probably the only good way of design. White, minimalistic, clean and edged.
What do you think about it? If everything is designed in that way, wouldn't it be pretty boring, cold and without any connection to a culture (depending on the location).
The more I look at all those Dieter Ram's style products, the more tired I get of it. I can't see it anymore. For me it is not beautiful but somehow depressing. There is no uniqueness, no art left.
I get your point but I think you may be taking the courses a bit too literal. You shouldn't just do the same thing that Rams did, but you should take his design philosophies in account, I think they are saying.
I agree that saying everything should be designed according to any specific philosophy is detrimental to the industry as a whole though.
Pic unrelated. It does show that within the same philosophy you can have a lot of variation.
I need help regarding Movie Studio 13 Platinum. I know this is /gd/ but i thought your skills could might be helpfull.
I need to add a countdown timer on a black screen in Movie Studio.
Something like " 30:12:45:12 ", need to count down and stop at a particular point.
I searched videos for hours but i couldn´t find something helpful
i tried it. i also tried to determine the time code at the end of the timeline. but all that happens is the timeline itself gets expanded. For example at the end of my time code i need to have the timecode to begin with 28: - so what movie studio does is displaying it in hours which would be 04:06:40,270.
I tried other displaying options but none of them helped. ...
what about if you fake it? for example you start with the first 2 numbers and move on to the others on after effects it shouldn't be that hard however it could take a while to animate each manually.

I've been offered a job to work with a printer but the boss wants me to use Corel Draw when I've only ever used the Adobe Suite. Is there much of a learning curve if you know Illustrator/Photoshop/InDesign? Is it easy to transfer projects from one to the other?
Personally i haven't used corel for a couple of years now, most recent version i remember was X5.
Currently only using CC suite and as with everything else - it has its own pros and cons.
Biggest pro for corel is its ability to work in full scale with, I believe unlimited artboard size which comes in handy when industry you're working for is a large format printing and applications. It did however had some issues with using profiles and colours in general. Gradients and raster effects were pretty bad as well.
If you got used to AI you will find incredibly irritating to work with paths, clipping masks and the worst of all layers as the layer manager is ridiculous and clipping masks works in completely fucked up way.
Also forget about importing AIs to Corel and CDRs to AI as currently there are not compatible at all as far as I'm aware. Way round it is to work of PDF's but corel saves them in messed way it only holds it appearance but its not editable in AI and vice versa.
Paths, anchors and curves work differently as by default corel uses equal bezier somewhat familiar to Photoshop but again - different to AI so some time will take to adjust to new key shortcuts.
I used x4 at work and it sucks. When the program crashed it made the last save corrupt and i had to constantly zoom in and out to see my picture properly. It was ridiculously buggy and horribly designed.
>was mainly employed
>started receiving freelance jobs
