Who is the most influential graphic designer of all time?
9 posts and 2 images submitted.

The field of graphic design is so diverse and because of the high degree of subjective/personal opinion a single designer will never be well received by everyone (eg apple logo, nike logo, coca-cola logo, all well known and recognised nearly everywhere in the world, but still some people hate it whilst others think they are perfect)

pdfs are too cumbersome and rely on plugins to view in the browser.

svg on the other hand is supported by browsers and is less bloated. We as a board should demand svg uploads to be supported.

How the fuck do people draw with these things?

I feel there is such a disconnect when drawing on paper vs a tablet.

After the first few days of using one you get used to it, I've had an Intuous 3, A4 for like 5 years now, it feels just as natural as drawing on a pad to me now.
>>
>>264356
It will never be paper but you get used to it eventualy.
Took me like 3 weeks to be able to draw properly on it.
Getting rid of the mouse and just use the tablet for normal pc use, that helps.

>also, why on earth does OP's pic have a badly photoshopped tablet when it's clearly something targeted at designers/illustrators?
>>
Same here. I just can't see how I could achieve what I can do normally with pen and paper on a tablet.
I have a shitty one and have tried using it but it is so terrible.

Are there any tablets that will give you the same flow of working on paper? I've yet to try out a great tablet.

Hi /gd/!
I'm trying to improve my logo for my News channel on YouTube.
The mascot of the show is a Wolf, and the "AE" are the initials of the program,
Can you guys give me advice or critique?

generic, bland, nothing about it is standing out to me. wolf doesn't need to be there and is pretty distracting, makes the logo too busy. start from scratch, because if you remove the wolf alone then you just have the A&E logo without the &

Why a wolf, by the way?

This is the old logo

How did you add that grungy effect?
>>
>>259108
It's a combination of two effects. I downloaded a black and white grunge texture and ramped up the contrast until it was just those black flecks. Then, using a luma matte, I set it so it only appeared on the white portions of the image. For the red section I did the same thing except inverted the color, so the flecks are white.

The second effect was just downloading a grunge paper texture, making it the top layer, and setting it to multiply, then lowering the opacity and saturation until it was more subtle.

So...Why are Mac computers the industry standard for Graphic Design, and creative arts in general again? I know it harkens back to the past when Mac was the platform that had PS first, and all that crap, but seriously...Why is it still considered the industry standard?

I've done design work on both Mac, and Windows ocmputers, and it doesn't affect the end result of my work at all. Seriously, why is the industry still so stuborn to change? Why do they think MAC IS THE BEST FOR DESIGNERS!!! Still? BTW, I'm not hating on Apple, just genuinely curious af about this subject, and wanted to hear /gd/ 's opinion on it.

Typing this from my Macbook Pro.

I'm also interested what others will say but for starters:

—The way OS X handles fonts

—ColorSync

—Generaly OS X can be more pleasant to use with touch gestures, screen scaling etc

—Aesthetic aspect of Apple hardware/software
>>
>>265760
in the tech world if you show up for an interview (back end) and you said you only know windows they probably will laugh at your face.
for design is kinda similar i don't think mac's are the "industry standard" but rather an status symbol. i was just reading about this photographer who said something like "i use mac's because when people see the apple logo they associate apple products with a higher level of professionalism and therefore they immediately recognize you as a pro even if you're not."
another thing i have experience is in the 3D industry the standard seems to be Windows 7 for some reason (maybe the compatibility with most 3d softwares)

watch:

and also have you read walter isaacson's steve jobs biography? it's pretty interesting i.m.o.

>>265760
I was halfway through a blogpost to answer your post when an easier though came to mind.

See that gray haired old jew sitting in the managers office?

He is why.

He started using macs cause they saved him money and shit aint gonna change until something way better comes along.

And by that time no one will even know what a fucking book or magazine is.

It's the thing to use on android. It's pretty solid. Not sure if there's really anything more to say about it.

Many other products and ads take inspiration from it as well recently, so it definitely appeals to people to some degree. No need to use it if it doesn't fit your use-case or if you don't like it, though.

IMO, it's terrible. MNML DSGN strikes again. Throwing away all familiar details in a desperate attempt to look fresh.

It doesn't even look like a logo to me. Where's the top? Where's the bottom? These lines don't look like letters anymore. It could be "bp" or even "lyi".

It's not completely worthless to me because it's a halfway decent idea and its fits the dominating minimalism trend. It could work as an "alternative" kind of logo, but only in the context of the original.

OK, turns out the clickbait-heavy tech blogs have fooled me. According to The Verge, "HP says it'll be using this logo solely on its premium laptops." So the actual HP logo will remain the same for now. They have actually rejected this one in 2011 when they thought about rebranding.

Also, forgot: it looks like barbed wire.
