Here's a fun game, maybe.

>Design a new logo for that company
Previous thread had some good stuff.
What do I add/change about this to make it look better.
>my first ever attempt at making a logo
>"be a minimalist"
>tries to but all it does is suck
so in general what does separate the good and the bad minimalist works? Should I change the background colour, a detail in the text font, the text itself? I tried combining 2 or 3 fonts that looked bold and sharp ( kind of like the iron maiden band logo but more minimal).
Ok so before you say what you have to say, I looked it through in a bit and noticed:
>no personality, that's why I named it a cheap dishwasher logo, because they all look the same
> background colour should be bright to compliment the sharper edges
>the "e" to "a" distance is nothing like the other ones.
Will post a newer one with these mistakes outdone and then ask you what else to add/change. Also, I know minimalism isn't about adding less but rather keeping it simple so are there any tricks to make flat logos more eye-catching?

it's better to get advice from somebody who's willing to criticize my work, not the one of somebody else.
How do i go about making money with gd on the internet without actually having a job? Basically i want to make money on the side.
Do things like 99designs and swiftly. People usually shit on programs like that but those people usually don't actually have careers in design. It's good practice with real projects and can make you a bit of dough while you build up a portfolio to get real gigs.
Serif fonts that stress the contrast between thick and thin lines are generally associated with fashion(just look at any fashion magazine) because it looks delicate and exclusive.
That fat faced sans serif font is pretty much the opposite and has not much personality in itself(I guess it was made during the Helvetica fad) Could also be Target package design.
Gap isn't high fashion, though - it's barely a step above buying clothes at Walmart.
I'd argue the new font is a much better representation of what they actually are, instead of what they want to be.
does anyone know a good ressource for free mockup-templates?
stumbled upon this:
but its kinda pricey, especially since I dont need 97% of the stuff that is included
Can you make some money by selling templates online?
Making basic 3d objects like books, magazines, coffeecups, bottles etc. with soft lightning and a flat plane background is pretty easy and I could shit out a bunch of such templates every day.
These kinds of templates used to view a design in an environment. Not only for business cards, let's say a 3D logo on a wall etc. I'm pretty sure these are plugins either for Illustrator or CorelDRAW, but I can't seem to find any. I usually make a 3D perspective of a BC etc in CorelDRAW, but that consumes too much time and they don't always look as good as.
What are these templates exactly and where do I find any to use with my software?
They're called mockups and they are not plugins. Photoshop is what you want for creating mockups or using mockup templates.
Most of the time they are actual studio quality photos of the products (business cards, t-shirts, etc.) like the one in your post, and a layer mask or similar used to apply the design to the object.
Of course it varies depending on the application and the design but there are lots of free ones that might be useful.
A google search of 'graphic design mockups' will help shed some light on the subject.
Is there an easy way to make text look like this? I am not asking about the font, but rather how to get the black and white saturation to "follow" a spesific point. Preferably in PS
So i just bought a Huion 1060 and it happened to be a piece of shit. Now I don't know how to get rid of it. Daily reminder that wacom is worth every penny /gd/
Fuck it lets have a WACOM thread. I just got an Intuos ART, and it's my first tablet. I feel like a mongoloid doofus with a brain injury trying to operate this thing. Does that feeling go away? I just wanna draw shit, mang.
I bought an A4 Wacom Intous 3 way back in 2005, still have it and use it to this day...It's not in great condition, there are scratches on the drawing surface and the pen nibs are all worn down to almost nothing and the USB cable is a little sensitive but functionally it still works perfectly and I still use it to this day. Not bad for some 10 year old tech.
It does anon. I have an intuos photo, which I only bought because of the sweet black colour. Lately i've used the for all purposes, switching to a mouse only for gaming. I use the left buttons for Show desktop and Switch application and the right ones for zoom in and out.
Hey /gd/ I'm thinking about making some Youtube videos of Photoshop tutorials (amongst other programs, AutoCAD, Revit, Lumion, Premier etc) I'm the only one in my group of friends that can use Photoshop and they always ask me for help with stuff, so I figure I can just teach them/other people with videos.
Just wondering what you think the best way to go about these tutorials would be. I was thinking about just going through the UI in the first few videos, starting the the tools pallet and then the drop down menus at the top and then the layers/colour/text pallets after that, then eventually make detailed videos explaining things like the pen tool and making layer masks and layer styles and stuff. Or do you think it would be better to just do the classic school teaching method of making a project that they follow along with that teaches them how to do a few things at a time?
TL:DR I'm making Photoshop tutorials on Youtube, what do you think the best way to teach people Photoshop?
just started using blender and i've made this light saber but it has tons of fire flies in it and increasing sampling size seems to not get rid of many. I'm not trying to do a full render but just wonder if theres a way to get rid of them or reduce them significantly in the render view/test render thing.
thats not the color i originally chose for it btw just wanted to highlight some of the details.
was also wondering if someone could point me to a tutorial that can tell me how to do this kind of spiraling I want to make a hilt like this for one of my other projects. Of even if you know what this is called that would be helpful i've not been searching the right term.
This is more of a /3/ thing.
But I do 3d as well, so I'll help you.
Fireflies generally occur when there's not enough light information, or you're using an hdri (even both sometimes).
Increase the amount of samples (as you've done), and increase the size of your lights/ power.
It's going to end up a bit brighter than what you'd like out of the box, but you can just fix that using the levels tool in a photo editor.
Also look into clamping, and branched path tracing.
This is /3/ as fuck. Go ask in the questions thread. [spoiler that doesnt work] use the twist modifier on a long box[/spoiler]
How do you feel about posting images here and discussing design, when 4chan user interface design is almost absent?
So I have this little animation that I'd like to do, but I'm not sure if it's even possible because of the way I want it.
So, if you look at the picture, those rectangles are actually an erased part of the white layer with a clipping mask, and the red galaxy picture is underneath it.
What I'd like to do is move the erased parts from off screen to on screen, but I want it to have a cool effect where it's actually just the erased part moving, so it's going to scroll (for lack of a better word) over the picture in the background and not be the same strip of the picture underneath.
I didn't mention why before, but the problem is (atleast in photoshop) is that you can't move the strip of red because it isn't anything, it's just an erased part.
Sorry if this makes absolutely no sense. Is there a way to achieve this in either Photoshop or After Effects? I'd prefer it in After Effects because that's like a real video animation thing, but whatever.
after effects is the best for this. look up how to animate a mask and you'll be on your way :^)
also idk how it'd turn out, but try adding a slight animation to the background image, like slowly increase the size of it or pan it slightly. i think it might look cool.
When I open this .png file in photoshop it becomes distorted
Any possible reason as to why?
Good day lads! I would just like a bit of help with a slight problem I have! I am a hobbyist when it comes to Photoshop, and I am slowly learning how to do things, and I have been working on my Regimental logo. The problem I have is that I need to make a "G" in the same format as the "EME EM" that you see. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Also, here is what the "G" is supposed to look like in terms of general shape, I just need help with making it with the same texture as the image I am working on.
not easy reverse engineering a typeface, especially a G, the typeface used here is an old style or transitional serif so you can start by looking at some G's in those typeface families.
