My Cousin is a graphic designer, and he hasn't had a job since 2013. He lives with my grandparents and my disabled aunt (his mom). He has made no money since 2013, and he refuses to get a job that doesn't pay him what he's worth. He thinks hes worth $50/hr, but he has done nothing to prove that he is worth that much. He most likely thinks this because he got a BS in Computer Information Systems, and a BA in Game Art & Design. He thinks that he is better than he really is (in all aspects of life), and his website looks like it's from the early 2000's (pic related is pretty spot on). He refuses to use social media, promote himself, or learn anything new.
So please /gd/, what sources can I give my cousin to give him some type of wake up call? Something where he might actually take the advice to fix his website, and learn the business better. He thinks he is smarter than everyone in the family, and he is splitting our family apart. Any help is appreciated.
why is this happening, first patreon and now skype. the fuck is going on with the interface and design teams.
or how did you choose your discipline?
I'm interested in motion graphics and print design and I keep hearing that I should pick one.
motion graphics is very involved. be prepared to learn 3d, art direction of course along with proficiently in animation techniques and fx, illustration helps. you need to develop a good sense of storytelling.
People always tell me my eyebrows look wild. Please someone shop them to a normal size so I can see if I wanna plug them or not.
I'm making a logo for my youtube channel podcast. Is based on an old logo from last year.
Which do you like the most?
It was made in MS Paint, I'm not a graphic designer, I may in the future like to go down that path, I'm not really sure, this is kind of a start, please be completely and brutally honest.
That's the exact sign you'd see in a tiny family-owned coffee shop in fucking Cornwall or something. That is, anyone could make it.
Add some sort of depth to the moon, and possible some kind of shadow. At least
Hi. I'm not a graphic designer, I'm sorry. How do I manipulate text to look something similar to this ? Thanks in advance :)
on photoshop - right click - transform by warp
on illustrator - envelopt distort by mesh
although design 101 recommend NOT to do that, and instead use text on a path or warp by using the object below.
ok dudes I feel like no matter what I do I am kind of shit at graphic design. I've been making stuff for a long time but I feel like I'm missing information on the fundamentals.
I am wondering if there are any key books and methods to learning how to do TYPOGRAPHY and general design? any recommendations
sorry this is so fucking vague I'm just trying to figure out how to seriously up my fucking game to professional level. I'm tired of feeling at a loss.
any tips appreciated
desu op i think its best just to look at styles or designs you like and copy them and modify them several times. you'll intuitively gain an understanding of what works and what doesnt. reading books doesnt really help.
Why does illustrator keep doing this to my shapes and how do I tell it to fucking stop?
I think he's referring to the .001 (thousandths) of the measurement, and wants whole numbers.
What happens if you type 45 in the Y box? Is is overriding back to 44.999 after you enter a new value?
This expires in 2 days, what do you guys think? Is it worth it for the courses and certification, is it legit ? What's the deal, wat do ? I am kinda poor but i wanna learn and would be willing to sacrifice some $ if this leads to better things
well this is why i asked - i am new to the graphic design world and i am wondering if potential employers give a shit about certifications like this? Especially since i have no experience.
sometimes they do (particularly the adobe certification) but i would rather have a good portfolio than a certification. for the software part you don't even need to learn that much. most pro's only use 5% of the tools, the important thing is a good eye, experience and have good design foundations/understanding.
When you add two waves that are equal except one has its polarity reversed with respect the other, you get silence. One cool practical use of this is getting the acapella of a song by using the original song and its polarity-reversed instrumental version.
Is there anything similar to this in the visual world? It'd be handy to get rid of, say, watermarks.

Except it never works because of mastering nuances.
