My pen tool is making strokes with a weird texture/noise around it. i just opened illustrator and this is what its doing so i havent added any weird brushes or anything. i assume one could be left over and causing this or maybe something somehwere is checked/unchecked but i havent been able to find it. anyone have any ideas on how to stop this and have clean normal strokes again?

Update: I pasted into photoshop and the lines were clean, so its some sort of visual setting within illustrator.

Anyone know where that could be? i am working on a surface pro so i imagine its something to do with the resolution
I had a similar, glitchy effect happen to me in photoshop when I tried to wand things. Eventually I did a complete uninstall, cache wipe, restart, and reinstall and that got rid of it. Sadly nuked all my settings in preferences in the process but hey.
looks like an issue with gpu acceleration, update your drivers and/or change your preview settings (view menu, or various modifier keys+y)

Thicker Font needed - something to reduce the space between the letters. Try Open Sans Extra Bold

Hey /gd/, I'm applying for my first job in design / media and I made my resume up, but the important part I believe is the portfolio. I just have a tumblr with some of my work, but a friend told me a tumblr looks very unprofessional and that I should make my own website. I don't know web design at all really, so I would have to go about that before making my own website, but I was just curious what paths you all took to make an online portfolio, and if you're comfortable sharing, I would love to see yours / hear about how you made it. Thanks!

Use tumblr, buy a domain, link it to tumblr, use custom css to remove tumblr buttons.

tumblr looks like website but you can use it
I use weebly for my web portfolio. Pretty inexpensive and super easy interface

This, or Squarespace

1. Put a large saucepan on a medium heat and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Add the bacon and fry for 10 mins until golden and crisp.
2. Reduce the heat and add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic and rosemary, then fry for 10 mins. Stir the veg often until it softens.
3. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the mince and cook stirring for 3-4 mins until the meat is browned all over.
4. Add the tinned tomatoes, chopped basil, oregano, bay leaves, tomato purée, stock cube, chilli, wine and cherry tomatoes. Stir with a wooden spoon, breaking up the plum tomatoes.
5. Bring to the boil, reduce to a gentle simmer and cover with a lid. Cook for 1 hr 15 mins stirring occasionally, until you have a rich, thick sauce. Add the Parmesan, check the seasoning and stir.6.
6. When the Bolognese is nearly finished cook the spaghetti following pack instructions. Drain the spaghetti and stir into the Bolognese sauce. Serve with grated Parmesan, the extra basil leaves and crusty bread.

I don't like the fonts used for "Sinners & Saints", they're extremely hard to read.

Does anyone know the fonts used in the back of the Switch Cases. I can't seem to find the type for the body copy and the type for the headlines such as the LICENSED BY NINTENDO and PLAY MODE parts of the cover.

crop them and use a font searcher like whatfontis or whatthefont or matcherator, if the letter are to close to each other just move them a little
Some options come up but nothing close or free lol
Nintendo near-exclusively uses stuff from Fontworks, often the Roman set of a full Japanese font. Start your search there, licensing is around $300 setup and $150 a year or you could mine old gg/Nutbladder/Commie fansubs who worked out of that.

Say you want to design a brand that communicates a feeling of pride and self-esteem. As in, our customers buy our product to get a sense of self-esteem. How do you bring that into design? How would you do it?

not a graphic designers. but i would relate those ideas to something and use the ideas in those designs to apply them into a new design.

it kinda makes me think of family crests and like, family pride or whatever. so maybe incorperate elements into that. confidence in the follow through and presentation. sleekness
>do my work for me kthxbye
Just look at LGBT parade, how they market their ideas. Why? If those mentally ill can feel proud about their broken and biological defects. While they gather massively like a bundle of sticks. There must be something seriously done right about it.

Hey guys,

A some months ago I came here to ask for your opinion on a technology law firm website that I'm currently developing, and I received a lot of nice criticism in that opportunity.

I made a lot of chages to the website and now I would like to have some input again.

Please be as harsh as possible.


Thank you

I think it's slow because I'm just using the developer's mode, not the full version.

Can you please elaborate on this point?

Yes, I've already pointed that out

Thanks for your input, anon.

Hello out there and welcome to my 'REAL FUCKIN NEATO' thread which I'll be returning to over the next few days. I'm encouraging you to share any tricks or tips that have helped you along the way. I have a few in my back pocket which I don't tend to share with my competitors for spiteful, disgusting reasons. However, I'll make an excuse for you...

Right then, lets get on with it.

It's been a good day, got a few bugbear briefs out the way that were turning into painful sores. A few et-voila moments which usually don't come in twos, especially when you're tight for time.

If you work alot with raster, and want your graphics/imagery to be scaleable (which is always ideal), I've known many designers fall at the gates of the pen tool at the first or second hurdle. I don't enjoy interpreting imagery by tracing over semitransparent base layers, and the live trace function in Illustrator CC is still completely bollocks.

Stumbled across a total gemstone a few years ago, almost unheard of in my circles which i've been using daily for the past few weeks. Enter Cocoapotrace. Some weird little app I picked up from a japanese geocities site i'll try and locate for you in a moment.

Basically, drop an image in, and it spits a relatively decent .eps out on the other side. Okay, if the edges aren't perfect, clean it up in .ai, but this thing does a far better job than illustrator.

image is a screenshot of the UI

Suck it and see chaps. I've only ever tested this on Mac.

Google 'cocoapotrace', first hit. Let me know what you think.
Alright, another one.

This one is important. When I was at uni, there was a time when I was becoming really really tired of hearing the word 'grid'. I had the audacity to think that I could compose by eye, just by smashing things onto a page I could achieve a balanced sensation, something aesthetic because I was in some way gifted with some ungodly power to make things look good just because I could.

I was wrong, and if you think the same, then you are wrong too.

If you want to be able to compose layout and image successfully, you need to underfuckingstand LEADING. You need to make decisions on your typography from the moment you know your page format. a 55x85mm business card to an A2 fold out mailer, what is the smallest type size you are going to use, will it be legible and what should the line spacing (leading) be.

As a rule, I'll work roughly to these guides:
A3 - 10pt line spacing min (9pt character height)
A4 - Same as above
A5 - 8pt line spacing (7pt character height)
A6 and > 6pt line spacing - (5pt character height)
These are guides, not rules, different faces have varying legibilities and different sizes, but you know this.

Also: If you are working with type and image together, you need to be working in Indesign. Are you illustrating? Illustrator. Are you editing imagery? Photoshop. Are you designing Layouts? INDESIGN.

So, with this in mind, you should work out what your leading is in millimetres and set your baseline grid as necessary, followed by a 12 column grid.

This tutorial sounds harder than it is, but once you get your head around it, any letter head, invoice template, cool looking 'easy breathing' layout you've stumbled across on pinterest, you will notice is following a strict grid - AND- if you have a solid sense of good typography and how to use it...It's all yours anon.

This is what separates the men from the boys.

Have a secret source.

You can see those ten a penny, bored out of their fucking minds carbon copy designers scattered across the landscape. These folk are usually followed by a trail of rehashed shutter stock vectors, all paid for, all done before.

Draplin talks about something he calls 'little heroes', little logotypes and markings created in times gone by and found on old gas canninsters and tool sets, all sourced from garage sales he drops in on.

I think that it's really telling that, this guy, at the top of his field is going down that po-mo route of sourcing and reviving the forgotten, creating new from the old. You should too. You should because if you can locate lost sources and cite them for inspiration / use them in your work, you will have a clear edge.

I have a guy. It took me a while to find him, but I visit most weekends and pick up a few things. He is tucked away in the corner of a local outdoor market. He has boxes upon boxes of magazines he's collected over the years.

For a nominal fee, I walk away with 20 or so items, put them all to the scanner and cut out what I like. It's helped me create custom lettering, collage, dadaist poetry, decoupage, logo form, everything.

60's porn, muscle building magazines, kung fu monthly, war comics from the mid 50's, most of this unseen since that time. Imagery that is likely forgotten now. It's all yours to do what you want with...

...and when you combine this awesome now wealth with cocopoatrace (see above)...

Find your cave of treasures...and whatever you do, keep it to yourself. In the infinite rehash, mine for the material nobody has seen for 50 years. Hack it apart, trace it, scan it, cut it up, find the elements that have been crafted, find forgotten lettering...

With tools like Fontself and a bit of talent, type design isn't just for the dedicated few anymore.

Any idea of which font it is or something like that??

Looks like a manually distressed font. You can achieve it by using the Spatter filter in Photoshop to roughen the edges, along with some texture brushes on your opacity mask
Thanks, I tried to trace it with Corel but no good results due to the the size i guess
Yeah you need hi-res images to produce good results with tracing. If I were you I'd go to YT and look up texturing tutorials for Photoshop. There are lots of ways to do this!

looks like a g but i kinda like it maybe make some variations with pen and paper first
I definitely wouldn't have read it as an S if you didn't point it out. Try making the top "tail" thinner, it's weighted far too heavily compared to the rest.
Just rotate it
