Hey guys im new to vectors etc ive just made these Car sticker designs just curious on your opinions :)
Awesome designs great job!! Can you link your original sketches? Curious to see how much detail you put in the initial sketch before going digital, or if you even sketched at all. Just wanted to see a little bit of the process.
Where do you find freelance work?
I lost my job a month ago after a random drug test. I'm looking for work to pay the bills -- preferably online freelance. Where do designers on /gd/ find freelance work?
Post your best work here budding graphic designers and noobs alike. I wanna see what /gd has to offer. Extra points go to descriptions about why you like it, who commissioned it and what you want to do next.
I recently made a zine for the yearly zine fair in my area. Watching Mr Robot/Fight Club/Matrix and reading Chomsky's Media Control: The Spectacular Achievements of Propaganda put me in the mindset to make this. It was an educational experience that turned out better than expected. Currently making a CD wallet for another lil project.
Looks cool, will you show us the inside? By the way, part of me wants to see one of the letters in HERD be backwards but that may be too cliche... Whats your yearly zine fair called? Any websites to check out other people's work?
Thanks pal, and believe me- the zine's just one massive cliche xD But I had fun. It's basically about how the general public's voice really don't count for much when it comes to how a democratic society is run. You can vote now and then for a leader of the specialized class, but thats about it. The main character comes to this bitter realization, and struggles to come to terms with it.
As for the zine fair, it happens in Bristol, England. And workwise just browse behance, follow the dandad new blood competition winners, and follow Its Nice That :)
How about a music art thread? Either designs you have created or pieces you are inspired by.
Pic Related: Typographic Portrait of Ghostface Killah made out of his lyrics, album titles, track titles and nick names. Done in Illustrator. I tweeted it to Ghost and he actually answered me and we talked for a few minutes it was awesome!
Studying art and graphics at high school in my last year before uni... Hoping to become a concept artist and wondered what you guys/gals thought of this?
The main part you want to be looking at is that city thing, so I'd suggest making the buildings taller and possibly having the "camera" angle a bit higher to make the city thing look much larger when compared to everything else.
'Keeping your files and shit organised' thread.
How do you keep all your files neat and tidy /gd/?
I had a system a year ago, but it's gone to shit with file names like finalfinal123-final9.ai.
If you have a reference library filled with images and projects you like, how do you keep it organised so you can find things by subject etc?
I was thinking of using OneNote for my documents and write-ups, but I don't know if its versatile enough.
Share your ways /gd/, help us out.
OneNote is great. I use it all the time to collect my project's visual inspirational materials and notes. It gives you pages with infinite area so you can organize your textual info, pictures, screenshots, schemes, files etc in however impulsive chaotic fashion you like and still have them neatly organized in sections/notebooks and synced through Microsoft's cloud service (TM) on all of your compooters.

Just give them timestamps. Like Webpage_Home_View_20151218_1257.ps.
I made an after fx vid yesterday afternoon based on a haiku i read, it used a lotta layered stuff that i photoshopped for a consistent cool blue style as well as sound i mixed and edited to give kinda a cold feeling.
I'm like really really new to after effects, so it definitely aint the coolest thing you've seen ever (also i just do this for fun, not at a professional level), but what do ya'll think?
I think you need to look at better fonts. It was uber distracting how sub-par the fonts were, especially if you were working in AE.
It's like you exported the video without text and then finished it in Windows Movie Maker with whatever stock fonts you have.
Anyway to turn out a cool logo/gd of the company name Speekyo?
My father and I are working on a tech start up to pay for my college education. Most hardware/software stuff done, all that is left is branding. We thought the two e's could become something cool and y's are always edgy lol. We literally have no idea what we are doing, so any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated!
simplify. don't use drop shadows and/or gradients. try using small caps (makes the logo more friendly) for the one in the pic related i use the font kimberly and rockwell (the icon will be just a placeholder for an abstract logo)
Hello, the Anonymous.
