I am taking 12 months off to self-study graphic design and coding full time.

I have a basic grounding in Adobe, know my way around PS and Illustrator pretty well. I'm looking to advance my all round GD skills and get a decent understanding of front-end dev.

I have all this time on my hands. I'm starting with Lynda, Udemy, One Month etc courses and taking it from there. What would you suggest are key areas for me to focus on and also the best kinds of self-directed projects to work on for my portfolio? There are so many possible applications for design and web-dev these days that I'm struggling to know where to focus on

That stuff is only going to help you learn how to use stuff to make stuff. Graphic design principles and a lot of other stuff is completely agnostic of the software.

I've learned some graphic design from talking with designer friends, asking them about how things are put together and whatnot. Some more from design blogs and websites. But if you're going to be serious about this, please save up some money for some proper education.

Hi guys,
applying for Industrial design at university this fall and right now I'm trying to come up with as many ideas as possible for my portfolio.
Do any of you have ideas, a portfolio yourself that you could show off, or anything that is helpful/relevant to me.
Thanks.

What do you mean you are trying to come up with ideas? Ideas of what? Product concepts? Things that go in your portfolio? You need to be more specific.
>>
>>258644
You should take a look at Andrew kims portfolio. Concept designs seem to get you exposure quickly. Just redesign objects that we use day to day in a clever way. Take a look at behance.net for ideas.

So all my life iv used Gimp. I only use it to shop together silly shit for friends or for quick laughs. Is Gimp a good program in the eyes of /gd/?
Iv also been looking for a program I could use on my phone that can do simple Gimp style things, such as layering, Alpha Channeling, cutting, etc.

I use Gimp for quickly slapping things together and Photoshop for professional work. I honestly prefer the interface of Gimp in most ways but PS is the more powerful and standards-compliant tool. Torrent it though, fuck adobe.

In OPs indulgent assumption that we know who the fuck he is, he miss identifies the fucking board that he's on, dipshit.

I thought it'd be clever to act like a decent human being, and hint that his attitude that we'd bother asking him anything was not going to be taken seriously because he couldn't be bothered to double check that he labeled the board properly.

What's wrong with this magazine cover?

Kerning on shift need work. Lose the stroke. Bring the margins in a bit it looks way too narrow, having the bottom margin narrower than the top makes it appear unbalanced, so does all the type crammed into the bottom.
The image isn't the most interesting thing for a cover page but a suggestion would be to try placing some of the type in that big black space you have in the middle that should be where you readers eyes should be drawn to. At the moment there's really no focal point which is kinda important if this were to be on a shelf next to other magazines.
I'm not sure what the point of that blue graphic is either. If you can't justify it ditch it. Hope that helps.

Who is your audience? The cover is meaningless because you target no audience.

Opinions on aaron draplin? i think he has a really neat aesthetic and i really enjoy all the work he has done.

When I started studying graphic design, I was shown a YouTube video on him lamenting the overly mechanical nature of a lot of modern designers...which I kind of agree with.

Not that I'm personally into his particular design style, but he's good at what he does, and I respect the dude's work.

Organization. I love aligning things and organizing them into a meaningful and aesthetically pleasing piece. I am also a fan of minimal yet impactful art.

The inverse procedure (classic blending) is very simple:

r3 = r1 × α1 × (1 – α2) + r2 × α2 × (1 – α1),
g3 = g1 × α1 × (1 – α2) + g2 × α2 × (1 – α1),
b3 = b1 × b1 × (1 – α2) + b2 × α2 × (1 – α1),
α3 = α1 × α2, ← I’m not sure about this.
α3 = α1 × (1 – α2) + α2 × (1 – α1), ← Perhaps this?

...where:

rgbα1 = background pixel,
rgbα2 = foreground pixel,
rgbα3 = composite pixel.

I would change the tone of green you're using
Right now it doesn't meet WCAG2 standards for legible contrast

Try a darker shade of green

I appreciate your consideration. It's true, shade of the accent color I've chosen doesn't fully satisfy me whenever I look over the page and you gave me a good technical explanation why it could be so.

At the same time I want just that right bright cyan-green color value cuz it looks so fresh imo. I'm a little afraid that a darker tone would look too dull.

Wow, I really like those websites, OP. Good job. Seeing them makes me realize how much I still have to learn.

But you might want to correct pic related. I'm on a 1024x600 netbook and this is what Spark looks like.
