can anyone rate my experimental PC chassis design? Really into glitchwave, proto-punk, and budget PCs. Wanted to make a PC that would fit into a neo-seoulian world. Any suggestions on what to improve?

unimaginative as in it has no value as an artwork and since there's no actual idea to communicate with it, i can't say if it's technically bad or not. this isn't even graphic design really.
>>
>>312617
why must an idea be communicated? Cant some art exists just to be an image, and nothing more?
>>
>>312618
graphic design is utilitarian, so if it doesn't communicate anything, i can't judge it as graphic design and this is graphic design board. then there's no technical right or wrong, especially if it's an 'abstract' composition.

ok, i'll try, as an artwork - it's a bit of an eyesore. it's very sharp and this thing with very saturated channel shifted neon colors is fairly new for vaporwave art, if it's so clean it doesn't even look retro. the color bleed made using channel shifting used to be subtle, blurred out, washed out, had crt scanlines imposed on it etc. the channel shifting thing is so overdone even in commercial graphic design and photography and video art in recent years, there's no 'wow' effect here. you know, for instance that all-popular watch_dogs game, the flat sharp cgi glitch motion graphic effects you don't really get in reality unless you damage your graphics card or lcd monitor, that. same shit on every youtube gaymer or vfx channel intro.
since the post-modern art it plays with has no rights or wrongs, it's hard to tell if it's good or not even as fine arts artwork. if you decided to read books about typographic grids, you'll read that humans like asymmetric compositions a bit more on the regular and you'd expect symmetric ones for very specific cases, since it's mostly visual dead end (as in where your eyes follow), the final spectacle, so a symetric composition has to be really good.

i've been up for many hours, so i'm a bit cynical.

after 10 years animating I still don't get follow-throughs right in the fist couple of tries and have to redraw them.

find a picture / texture of a stained wall, paper or whatever, desaturate and crank up the contrast, use select -> color range to select and cut it out and maybe trace in illustrator as a vector for better edges and scaling

take a brown paper bag
wrinkle the bag by lightly crushing it
you wan't to develop big wrinkles not small wrinkles
grab hellman's or best food's brand mayonase and smear 1tsp on your dick
wrap the brown paper bag around your dick and give it 2 wanks
slowly remove the paper bag as to not overtly smear the mayonaise
allow the mayonaise to dry overnight on the paper bag
when dried just scan , open illustrator then apply the effect and voila ! easy !

It is a font called 'Shatter', but it's made from an oblique cut of Helvetica, so you can just make it yourself by playing around with Pathfinder

can you share some self marketing panflets for inspiration?

You don't have a logo or wordmark you use to brand yourself?

You don't know how to google "marketing pamphlets" or "sell sheets?"

Being creative is anxiety-generating for you? You don't collect inspiration or personal experience to draw upon?

You're probably in the wrong field.
>>
>>312681
Why do you suddenly need to brand yourself, anon?

If this is a source of anxiety for you, then don't do it, keep doing client work and think about it on the back of your head.

There is a saying: If you're anxious, don't do it. If you are gonna do it, don't be anxious.

Bottom line is, you need to know WHY you need to self-brand. If you know the reasons, you shouldn't have any anxieties besides some performance anxiety which is natural and can be overcome with ease if you plan well in advance your steps and then just go for it.

I'm offering a new kind of service and I'm looking for more clients because I'm poor as fuck right now. I think I'm anxious also because I need to study and give attention to crazy gf at the same time. I don't have performance anxiety if I'm designing stuff to promote others, but since it's myself I think I need to pop out something better than any job I have done so far. I mean, who would hire a guy who doesn't advertise himself amazingly?

I want to start making some Vaporwave designs. I get the general aesthetic, colours, typefaces etc but where does a lot of the inspiration come from?

I'm interested in creating more vector based designs as opposed to glitching

watch old murrican and japanese commercials

pay attention how product packaging differed from the current ones, such as coke cans

video 3d gfx demos from 80s etc

https://www.youtube.com/user/VintageCG

learn about designs of the old apple computers and UIs from 80s and 90s, commodore, nextstep, winders 95, DOS program UIs etc

apple 80s futuristic prototype product designs

80s/early90s anime

japanese video game console variants

vector screens

pixel dithering effects

try to have some more research groundwork for creating something unique instead of just slapping some borderline cringeworthy le retro sprite cough syrup blue and pink photoshop farts together. don't just imitate the imitation, that's shallow.

i'm pretty glad these things actually make people learn to work in graphics editors and some stuff about composition and colors, but maybe keep in mind this kind of an ironically-sloppy direction has been done to death, so if you later ask for criticism on /gd/ or wherever people may just be bored by it. then it's also hard to give any criticism cuz it's supposedly supposed to be sloppy shit. that said, do what makes you happy and involved with computer graphics, it's not a bad start.

it's kind of silly to see these daily stormer, alt right folks who have suddenly jumped on an 5 year old trend and think it's sooo cool and 'in with the kids now' although part of the original aesthetic is copious drug use / abuse, ironically listening to shitty hiphop and romanticizing mental illness.

here's some stuff:

>"we really need it done as soon as possible"
This shit drives me to the edge every time. When I have more time for works, I have time to work out the compositions, look and edit neat stock photos to the design, go through some different styles to see what works best, but this "ANON HURRY UP DO IT ASAP" shit means always that I need to almost copy-paste some of my earlier client works and just slap a new text on it. Clients love when I copy-paste earlier designs that have satisfied them, but I fuckin hate this shit since it doesn't put my skills to any test, it's assembly-line-tier shit.

When they don't ask me to hurry up, I can actually try to come up with better, more creative designs and clients may begrudgingly accept it at first, but usually later on they learn to like it, especially after few corrections done at my part.

>it doesn't put my skills to any test, it's assembly-line-tier shit.

A lot of other designers don't care that much about being creative.

Good work.
