How do I modify a stock image so it can't be reverse searched in Google Image Search & Tineye?
I've tried Blur, Flip Horizonal, Color Balance, Brightness, and no luck.
Is this the worst album cover art ever?

I once read a scientific text how about colors impact our perception and stimulate how we act.
It showed the orange and red colors chosen by McDonald's would make you feel the need to eat.
I'm planning to reform my bedroom next year, and I'm already planning how should I decorate it.
I always thought of having an all dark bedroom, with black painted alls so I could be comfy while watching movies and stuff. But on the other hand, I'm always studying, so I think a brighter color would help me to get woken up.
If you were to build yourself your own room, how would you decorate it?
I turned the spare bedroom into my office/game room. The walls are a dark blue. I think the paint color was called 'Blue Suede Shoes'. Similar to the attached image.
Walking into the room, you immediately feel cool, calm, and relaxed. I have no issues getting work done in there.
Yes. Something like that.
I don't have enough space, I'll keep a office and bedroom in the same place. I was going to use something like you, a mix between purple and dark blue. I live in a very sunny place.

A few months ago we had a great thread with a lot of links to sites that had free stock photos, icons, fonts, books and other stuff.
Let's do that again.
Here are some great sites I've been using a lot recently:
It's just my website. Here I show what I do and test new stuff that I've been learning.
Feel free to share and comment
>Hey guys, I'm better than you. Here is the proof.
Well Sandrin, it is curtainly pretty. I don't like your font selections, and honistly your site feels like overkill.
If you have all the experience I would figure your resume would be enough. You still list all your skills like you aren't sure of yourself, and you list a number of other things I would expect to see from someone trying to pad out their one-page resume.
You should consider simplifying as your produced websites and personal experiments feels like more than enough to sell yourself.
>Also, take off your damn personality type.
Which NBA team has the best logo?
Which has the worst?
Milwaukee's new logo is top tier, imo
This is a thread about graphic design.
Please take trash-talking to >>>/sp/
current i'm assuming? there are a lot of vintage nba logos i love (some of them admittedly kind of ugly, but fuck it)
current top tier:
Golden State Warriors
and Chicago Bulls because they've never needed to change. It's so iconic. Doesn't really make any sense but it works.
I'm biased though because I'm a chicagoan. Blackhawks jersey/logo is the best in sports.
>how does it feel to know some of the best logo of all times are fictional?
ITT honest fictional logos
I've always been partial to Black Mesa.
Is it wrong that I'm really attracted to graphic design like pic related? It gives me a nice feeling. I'm very naive, does anyone know what it is called? who does it best?
Can you post more of it if you like it too?
Hey /gd/, /ic/ anon here. I've noticed that a lot of the people on this board seem to be getting freelance work. /ic/ has a similar goal of getting work with their art but sadly very few of us actually have work.
I currently have the mindset that graphic design has a much lower skill requirement to be good at. How much of this would you say is true. I feel that it is a very insulting mindset and I'm hoping that the truth is that graphic design is actually very hard. In the similar way that someone who doesn't draw would believe that once they've discovered that you can copy Morgan Freeman photographs accurately you're as good as the old master.
Could someone help to get across to me how much it actually takes to git gud in hopes that I can use it as motivation for /ic/. Even /fit/ has a lot of people achieving their large goal on their board on 4chan of all places.
>TL;DR is graphic design hard?
>posting butts to draw attention
Fairly easy to follow trends, but a real fucking skill to learn good, timeless design and then meaningfully apply it. Imagine all the web artists that have some bit of minor success because they gave a bunch of characters tumblr noses, and then consider where they are now and if that's really sustainable, if anyone really considers them good, and if they can get a real job out of it. I think you'll realize the difference between copy pasting meaningless hipster logos or slapping down bits of text in left justified Helvetica and the practice of meaningfully and thoughtfully communicating a message through visual communication accompanied by any number of tools, whether physical or digital, each one taking time to get anywhere near good at.
tl;dr this thread is fucking pointless and you already know the answer but I'm okay with it as long as you post more figure drawings
A few unorganized thoughts:
It takes more than online tutorials, college courses and pirated copies of adobe products to be a good graphic designer. There's some things that you just can't learn or teach someone.
Ahmed Tuctuc the VII and his $3 logos have had a huge impact on graphic design. Quantity over quality has become the norm. Sub-par, even bad design is acceptable.
Over the years, I've noticed that the majority of young designers lack any skill OFF the computer. Ask them to sit and sketch a basic still life on paper and they wont know where to begin. It's really sad.
The old term 'starving artist' is no longer valid, a 'stupid artist' is more appropriate.
Not many people in the art/design field have much knowledge when it comes to business. As a freelance artist you need to understand basic business principals if you want to succeed. I'd highly recommend that anyone who plans on freelancing to take some business classes.
let me share my point of view.
there will always be design everywhere. good design and bad design.
The main difference about art and design is that design has a function, a design has a practical measurable goal unlike a piece of art. design lacks the freedom illustration has when it comes to artistic styles.
Design is run by principles, and you can learn those principles just like you can learn perspective in drawing, but to be able to do good design.
not everyone can do it, at least not people who lack the understanding of the reasons behind why design is needed in the first place.
Another aspect of design, wich is one overlooked by many, is the real reason why universities have careers using design as their label.
the technical aspect.
Design has many designers, but design doesn´t have as many people prepared to do it well. There are a lot of things they will teach you if they teach you well, that have to do more with machinery and project the in itself that have nothing to do with how well you can use illustrator or how well you can do mockups and are things that are of so much use and make designers stand in their field as professionals.
A designer is someone who solves problems professionally.
A kid who just started his photography classes will take 100 photographs, and at least 1 will be good.
A professional photographer will take 100 photos, and all 100 will be good.
Same with professional designers.
same with any other professional field.
From a purely marketing perspective, as in for the average consumer of such supplements browsing an eCommerce website, which bottle render do you think is the most appealing? Most likely to be bought? Thanks for your feedback.
Can someone photoshop or edit this picture for me and remove the website it has below? without cutting the photo making it smaller, please and thank you.
I need some graphic design work done, a relatively quick job that basically entails translating this logo sketch into a vector with some cleaning up/slight adjustments.
Where do I go about looking for this? What's the internet yellow pages for this kind of thing?
honestly OP, if all you want to do is to vectorize it and change slight things, there's software that can do it for you (pic related).
I'm just saying this because I guess that's a logo for your metal band.
Hiring a real designer will make the logo better. There's lots of room for improvement, the K looks like an X and the E is weird.
A lot of people think graphic design is just doodling logos. But there's messages and communication in designing a brand.
Come up with a brand name for a company using these 5 characteristics your client wants it's perspective customers know. Easy enough?
The catch: They do lingerie now, but are thinking of coming out with a line of clothing for men some time in the future.
