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.

Haven't seen it yet myself, but that doesn't look very good. Why are we suddenly mixing minimalistic/ simple stuff with gradients? Are we going back in time?

its called postmodernism. time does not exist anymore. we are in a giant amalgamation of style at this point. see Jurassic World and Vaporwave for examples.

ok but you have to admit jurrasic world is at least slightly more coherent than this thing. like, it doesnt even have the same structure as the old interface

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.
7 posts and 2 images submitted.
>>
i gradually pick motion because nowadays everything is multimedia

I was undecided but in the field i focused on the go

So don't worry you will find your path
>>
Thought it was more illustration based.

Should have chose illustration instead.
>>
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.

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

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

Have you visited your local library?

>>313225
last time I searched for books I had trouble locating a good one, thought someone would have a rec
>>
>>313224
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.

Are you referring to it being in metric, or it not being whole numbers?
>>
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

Certifications aren't worth shit mah nigga, only thing that matters is experience.

Besides, all 3 of those have countless free tutorials online.
>>
>>312518
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.
>>
>>312519
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.

>>312312
I suppose if you had the file used to make a watermark, you could invert it then use opacity or layer styles to remove it
>>
>>312312
it would work on pictures( if the watermark is white), but not on text. if the watermark is black, you'end up with grey text

can someone photoshop the pic below like this pls :)
