Found this font called "JayCons" that has the meaning written underneath each kanji. I want to make a font like this too, but what site/program should I use so it's not incredibly time-consuming?

fontforge and/or github (maybe there's some people who could help you if you make it opentype)
few more
Glyphs
Birdfont
RoboFont (mac)
Font Awesome (onlne)

i was just reading this that mentions git.

Thanks, I hadn't heard of Font Awesome (Glyphs and Birdfont had some problems last time I tried them, dunno if they'd work now).

I just found FontArk too, which seems pretty easy to use aside from the "unreadably small interface text" problem....
>>
>>271544
So because google paid people for making those fonts they're not really open source? I don't understand.

Thoughts on the new instagram logo?

Disgusting, looks like every other cheap camera or filter icon. The old one was the one skeuomorphic mark I liked, felt genuine and not easily recreated which made it unique, kind of like a banknote design.

You should've told your friend that thanks to OLLE, his name looks like miiiows or some such shit

Also I feel something more could've been done with Higher Division. It's kinda just plopped in the middle.

Fine enough cover though

Hello there /gd/ I'm designing my personal logo for the first time (initials I & S) but I can't come up with something good. The one that convinced me the most is the big one on this image. Any help/critics?

use the critique thread. it just read like H. kindergarten/10

reads like an h, elongate the stem of the I

It reads as an S and an H but also don't make a logo of your own initials. You are a person, not a company.

This site might be able to spit out something similar to your typeface...but you have custom hand lettering, so good luck.

Yeah, basically the same problem as the Commonwealth Bank logo, it has some convoluted meaning behind it that no one will understand at a first glance just making it some pointless shape

Sorry dipshit but the points of the yellow shape make the Southerner cross, its a pretty good logo, ufck you cunt :)

This year I've noticed a new trend in graphic design , it has that feeling of "high level" design which I like it but at the same time there a few pieces that are just "meh"..

It seems like every graphic design even for web looks like some editorial stuff and they play a lot with type but I honestly don't get that part, most of the time that just looks like they just tossed some random letters into it and distorted them kek.

I see a lot of neon colors and IK blue, wiggles and milano inspired patterns, I look at it and I feel like every shit I've done to my portfolio feels outdated, but I believe I don't have enough sensibility to create my own "avant-garde" design, they seem to have a retro inspo but look timeless at the same time

I'm sorry I don't know how to express myself exactly and language is a bit of a barrier here.

Bottom line is, could you guys help me out to decode this style? Post inspo pictures, articles, books, grids, colors, links, whichever you think it's helpfulll.

I want to reach that higher level of design but I don't know exactly how

There's got to be some creepy secrets hidden under that bish

Are there any websites with some graphic design contests, like e.g. that UI challenge every day? I'd like to practice on something and it would be cool to have a specific task every day.

/r/logodesign makes up a breif and give people 2 weeks to enter. At the end of the 2 weeks the next contest starts and and voting for the winner of the previous one starts.

Okay so I am interested in graphic design but the only thing I have ever done is mess around with photoshop for the past 2 years but now I want to be serious about it. My question is, is there any good tutorials anywhere and can you name some good software that will help me?

Hello, /gd/

I'm going to register a game company, and I need a logo for that purpose.
I have pretty much decided on these three variations, but I thought I'd ask for some feedback first.
I'm generally pleased with the look, but I've never made a logo before, so I might have made rookie mistakes.

Have a couple more variations, which I'll post below, but I think these will fit best.

Are there any good references or guides for learning how to do tribal patterns?

I want to get into doing tribal patterns for logos n such but i have a hard time understanding the logic behind them.
9 posts and 4 images submitted.

Eh, one kinda sorta thing is study up on nature, look for patterns and junk. The swoops and swirls and whatnot. Try mirroring/spirographing the swoops and swirls to get those interesting effects.

I don't really do a whole lot with those but I had a lot of luck just sketching out a design in photoshop, making a mirror line, and then flipping it over on a side, selecting smaller shapes and mirroring around, etc.

No clue if that's actually what you're supposed to do or not.
>>
>>271386
Its kind of a hard thing to learn or look up references because google just brings up really shitty zig zag patterns.

Well, there's Tapout style bro tribal, a bunch of meaningless swirly pointy shit, usually surrounding a cross or a skull and placed prominently on the front of Guy Fieri's shirt.

Then there's actual tribal patterns, by actual, you know, tribes.

Study up on art and tattooing by the Maori, ancient Inuit and Norse, etc. Fuck, it's right in the word "tribal", this shit isn't hard.

Got asked by my mom to make flyers for her church's hot dog sale. I went for minimalism, so I'm curious if this looks okay? Usually they just have what it is, some clip-art, and when/where.

>tfw you see generic Helvetica.

There's a difference between minimalism and being a hack, OP.

You know what ? This is a flyer that I would look at if it was presented to me on the street. Add a spot color for contrast and you're good op.
