I made a logo for myself, mainly out of boredom and need of practise. Give it to me straight guys.
Which of these cards is objectively the best?
How do these clowns print the company logo in any goddamn font they choose. No consistency in branding, 0/10
Personally I like Bateman's card the best. Fine ass letterpress action going on in there.
Any freelance designers looking for work?
I'm starting a skate brand and I need some art, tee designs and deck designs

Hello /gd/, I've been working on a hotel website, this is a page about rooms. I would like to know what you think about it and what should I improve, because there is always a room for improvement, first time posting here.
Short guide and my reasonings. Headers with a medium-short height contain parallax images of room examples (at the moment those are just placeholders, I'm not satisfied with the photos that much honestly), and a button for reservation, rather simple. White div's show some information about the room (the info was already there as this is a website redesign), I put the numbers I think are important to the sides and they are easily noticed - number of persons per room and its size. I picked gray font for this because I think it is rather elegant. Lighter brown color is there for the details, I rather like it with a white background, I think it looks pleasant and delicious, I accented the borders with that same color but I'm not sure what others will think about it. The biggest room of them all, presidential, has a black background with the same gold-brown color, it symbolizes wealth and I chose it so it can contrast well with the other ones and be somewhat unique. The things I'm not sure about are the number for the room size of presidential suite because it has 3 digits so I had to scale it down to fit, also I had problems coding the paragraphs div to be centered vertically but on the other hand, I think it is a better idea to put it this way so the top part is parallel to numbers and in the same distance from the image as the rest of them.
So that is a short explanation and my thought process. I am looking forward to your opinions and hope to learn something worthwhile.
One more thing, I have a problem with color representation on my laptop monitor and now I see it on my phone screen. Grays will definitely be lighter and the brown should be somewhat less orange, oh well, I will fix it asap. Yes, I have pure white and pure black backgrounds and am aware that is not a good thing, but is it really that big of a problem or should I change it a little like rgb(10,10,10) and rgb(250,250,250)?
I would make the "sleeps" part flush right and the "avg room size" flush left to align itself toward the body content instead of away from the body content. I would also make the sleep/avg room size part a font weight bolder than it is now, because on the black it's going to be a legibility problem. good use of dark grey instead of pure black. I personally don't prefer parallax, but as an alternative suggestion, maybe the bottom right corner of each snippet image could have a full-screen button that blows up the image into a lightbox. that helps people if they're curious about the snippet without having to leave the page and go find the sexy pic etc. I hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply.
I changed a few things so let's see what we got now, I'll post a mobile version of this in a post below.
>I would make the "sleeps" part flush right and the "avg room size" flush left to align itself toward the body content instead of away from the body content.
Like this? What do you think? I tried with different wordings on room size because when it is the longest version it looks kinda bad, not simmetric. This is somewhat better I guess, but can't decide.
>I would also make the sleep/avg room size part a font weight bolder than it is now, because on the black it's going to be a legibility problem.
I've set font-weight to 600 now. It is more readable but I didn't notice it to be the problem before though. It only bothers me a little because I kind of like a thinner font for this, but UX is more important if it gets too hard to read.
Also switched #000 to rgb(5, 5, 5) for the presidential bg.
That's a good rec for a lightbox, I actually didn't add a gallery yet, so I think I will probably make that "Reserve" button to be a link to pics of that room instead, there is a reservation button at top anyway so it didn't make much sense to me from the beginning though, but they had it that way. So I would rather change the link than putting another button on the side because I kind of don't want to mess with simmetry.
Thanks for the feedback. Few more would be nice too! I would show a main page which is based around grid system, somewhat like microsoft's tiles, but I didn't choose the right colors and images yet and I've spent more time on it than I would like to admit. This one though is simple and I am satisfied with it at the moment but it can always get better.
Trying to make a dot pattern image of the moon.
But I don't want to use the halftone pattern filter:
I want the dots to be equally sized but represent different lightness by having varied density.
I figure one way would be to to posterize the image to have, say 3 or 4 shades of gray.
Then copying each shade to a different layer one could use them as filter and fill the entire layer with a pattern of dots, equal in size but differently spaced.
Not sure how I would accomplish the last step, and it would leave half dots along the edges.
I'd also rather have it done more dynamically, so instead of having 3 densities I would like it to vary across the picture.
I've got some pretty shitty social skills so I'd like to freelance online exclusively. How did you find your online clientele? Are there many people here who do that, or do you guys just go out and network to find work? Feel free to post your opinions on the matter.
What do you think about website of the most prestigious graphic design school in Finland?
I just started a new job today as a designer for a large porn studio here in San Francisco. I'm tasked with updating the look of the website, as well as ebooks, DVD covers, video links etc.
I need your help; we all know graphics beyond a logo aren't porn companies' highest priority, take a look at pretty much any porno DVD cover ever. What sorts of things would help you enjoy visiting a porn site's official page more pleasant or DVD covers more enticing? Standardized sections for the actors credits? More thumbnails, less thumbnails? I've never worked in this field before but I'd like to try to make a good impression with my bosses. I'm not even sure if I'm asking you win/gd/ings the right questions... Thanks for any advice
Focus on the girls, that's what most of the guys care about.
For the DVD's Minimize all the crazy text. Simple clean text and good looking women. Let the photographer do most of the work. Not sure about the site, depends if they want aesthetics or functionality. Make sure you emphasize the money making aspect of the company prominently enough, the premium membership button a different color int he nav menu for example.
Are you a fast worker? If you are fast, then be prolific. Go like 3-4 different directions and then let your bosses pick which one they like. Don't go too fast though, because then you wont have any room to improve, you'll have set the pace too fast. Don't go too slow either, then you'll just look incompetent.
Read the faq and searched catalog for a critique general, but couldn't find one.
I'm starting a business and I'm playing around with some design ideas for my logo or letter head.
Three colours I'm using is a light maroon, white and black. I'd like the design to work on white or black backgrounds, but I also want to have the capability to add it to other coloured backgrounds using a rectangular box.
The font is Cardiff by Roger White and is allegedly inspired by Times New Roman. I looked at them closely side by side and there does seem to be a difference. I've played with other fonts but I they don't offer the same impact/elegance as serif. I tried a medieval calligraphy font, but it made the logo less recognizable.
I played with some other colours, but it doesn't make much sense for the red prince to use anything but red (but I added them in anyway). I'm using a lighter shade of maroon that contrasts black, but also looks good on white background. I've noticed that the red horse on black background doesn't help the outline of the image, so I've left it mostly the other way around.
Any critique is much appreciated.
Did this using Photoshop, I certainly would achieve better results and smoother edges using another software, but I wanted to test a concept and then receive feedback on it.
like a lot of other times, we're making "minimalistic" album covers.
That being said, a lot of what's posted doesn't exactly the definition of "minimalism" (I posted a few and I'll admit some of mine are way too detailed).
>What are your thoughts on minimalism?
>Have any examples of good minimalist designs you've made?
>I guess it would be alright to do a similar thread here? Except you could make minimalist designs of whatever (except do a good job and not shitty pixellated MS paint bullshit that they do at /mu/), not just album art. Though you could do album art.
I usually don't cross post over here but I do occasionally lurk. Hope this thread's fine with y'all.
I really don't know much about minimalism, but what I think it is, is that it's about refining an idea down to what it is.
I also made this for the thread pretty quickly.
>After Effects CC 2015
>Composition: 4:3 // 1400 x 1050 // 24fps // 0:00:10:00
Several objects are laid out in my composition.
I want them to appear (sliding & fading in) separately, with a delay (one after the other).
What I have so far:
>1. Create 'Adjustment Layer' (rename: 'anim').
>2. Add 'Slider' (rename: 'posMod') from the 'Effects & Presets' panel to 'anim'.
>3. Add 'Slider' (rename: 'delAmt') from the 'Effects & Presets' panel to 'anim'.
>4. Create a solid 'Obj 1'.
>5. Create a solid 'Obj 2'.
>6. Create a solid 'Obj 3'.
>7. Apply 'Separate XYZ Position' transformation to each, individually.
>8. Set keyframes for 'posMod' slider from -100 to 0 (duration is 12 frames).
Now, using (an) expression(s), how do I animate the Y-Position of 'Obj 1', 'Obj 2', and 'Obj 3'
to move -100 to 0 relative to their original (or current) position with a delay value (seconds)
provided by the 'delAmt' slider multiplied by the index of each 'Obj n'?
>WebM related, it's what I wish to achieve but with expressions instead of keyframing everything separately.
I know this is supposed to be a fairly simple task, but I can't wrap my head around it.
Thanks in advance!
Still couldn't manage to find out how to do this, so I ended up keyframing everything manually.
This is what I was working on.
The question, however, remains because I imagine there are a few other UI designers here who wish to illustrate how their designs look in action without having to write HTML / CSS / JS code.
I'm guessing you want to do this for learning purposes because you are overcomplicating the whole thing. I work with AE for a living and using expressions I'm not familiar with always results in making things harder.
Easiest way I can think of doing this is the following:
>create square shape
>keyframe Y coordinate and opacity
>duplicate shape twice and apply a fill to the duplicates in order to have different colors
>change the X position of each (with a spacing that makes sense unlike your example) and move the keyframes apart so they animate whenever you want.
hellalot easier than using unfamiliar expressions
Has anyone experience with 2d software/animation?
Do you need it animated in a software ( program/app ) or just to make it animated as a video ?
If you need it for a software need more info with what you work on if it's just video try adobe after effects

Post logos, logotypes, emblems, symbols, etc... that you like, discuss other's shit taste.
For some reason, I really love how memorable, yet, complex the logo of CDS is. I'm glad then only changed the front and kept the logo untouched (pic related is the old font)
