Hey /gd/,

What's up.

I started making this font a few weeks ago and was wondering what you guys thought of it.

It's intended use is to be implemented into stencils (think Banksy) and the interspaces, which the characters contain,
are there to facilitate the accuracy of the applied paint from a pressurized vessle such as a paintcan.

The picture you were just presented with is actually a photograph of a 3x A4 leaflet, unto which I had printed the letters (in black)
and then stuck together, which is hanging on my wall.

I have "the mastersheet" stored on my drive in a PNG format which was created by scanning in hand-drawn letters and
then editing them with 'photoshop-light' (paint).

Very few of the original letters remain though, as most letters are composites of elements taken from previously created characters.
The "R" as you can see, is simply a "P" with an added diagonal line.
The "P" was created by adding an extra vertical line on the left side of the "D".
The "D" before that was made by vertically inverting a "C" and adding just one vertical line to the left side of it.
And so on.

The bright, intense orange glow which surround the characters was an unintended side-effect of 'jacking up' the intensity as well as the contrast
with the image editing software of an android smartphone.
The intended background-color was obviously white, only I think the bordeaux-red paint of my wall gave it this profound, vibrant and fire-like aurora.

The sentence is the easiest pangram (a holoalphabetic sentence which contains every letter of the alfabet at least once) you can imagine.
They're typically used to present typefaces / fonts, so don't bother with trying to decode it; there is no secret meaning to it.


The "G" looks slightly off, and I'm working on that.
Furthermore the "J" slightly protrudes above the 'X-height', which is making my OCD go really bad, so I'm working to fix that.

Comment / rate / troll.

dude thanks for giving us this very advanced, obscure knowledge


The font is visually okay but there are many problems of consistency (letter pairs that should follow the same model, but dont): in a second I can see E/F, O/D, V/W and I/T. Also the H is fucked up, and the W is really ugly. A good thing are the letter proportions, which look nice.
I also think there are way too many unneeded cuts but that's your choice.

kek I didn't even catch that

OP, I can tell you have OCD, I used to have this urge to over-explain too, weird

I do like the font though, looks useful

Hey guys and girls.

Making a planche for a school project, but I need some more ideas about what could be added.

If figured you guys probably have some great ideas.

I'm not so good at photoshop.

btw this is not a request for design, just asking for ideas

what are words?

>>236970
The thing is in danish and they have to be there.

Ofcourse they could be arranged differently.
>>
>>236971
Am I the only confused by your request? Are you asking us for tips on the design or to add more bulletpoints about Rainforests? Even though only a minority of us knows what the bulletpoints say right now.

Not trying to push you off, but I have a hard time understanding your request.

Hey /gd/
Has any employer you've ever worked at cared about whether or not you took any design higher education? Also general advice for this career path thread
12 posts and 1 images submitted.

general advice:
don't do it
major in something else; something related if you want to stick with the art/design field.
make graphic design a side thing and not your full time money maker
>>
>>236864
Advice is like pennies everyones got several, it's all about the effort you put in. I majored in Graphics Design and after three years I'm the Lead Designer for a corporation. Agency work is really fast paced compared to corporate design (adhere to style guides, make sure everything is in line with the companies identity). Just do it man.

i took a 2 year course in graphic design after giving up in comp sci. Im working as a graphic production artist at a screen printing company. Its pretty easy, but its steady as a 9-5, theres a few times where I get to input my design skills but technique wise its really upped my understanding of vector based art and composition. Especially when I dig through other peoples files and see how they created stuff (usually like retards).

My employer just asked if I had graduated and I said yes, he didnt even ask to see any credentials. But I had a connection from the inside. Moral of the story is make connections, thats the a big reason people go to college it seems.

Hey /gd/
One of my customers needs a new logo for his Yoga centre, the thing is he doesn't want any yoga poses in the Icon. He prefers a simple but strong icon which shows some sort of connection. It's not the spiritual kind of Yoga. Any suggestions?

Brainstorm - things that bend, delicate but strong, organic, etc.

Now translate the found info into symbols and pair with some nice, clean type.

You are getting paid, we are not.
DO YOUR OWN WORK.

You're probably stuck with a lotus then, as you already suggest yourself. Good thing is you can do a lot with it, and it's a very graphic flower in itself.

Only other option I can think of right now would be an Om symbol. Not sure if that's simple enough tough.
>>
>>236857

The Om symbol has been used a lot as far as I know. I found these recently, strength and triskel might be an option. Personally I think triskel is more simple looking.

My sister is following a product-design course, and made the top logo for a fake company she's starting as an assignment. She asked me to improve it (below).

It's for higher-end kitchen equipment like mixers and boiling-water faucets. Thoughts?

Don't ask about the company name and pay-off by the way, I've got no idea what she's on about with that
>>
>>236789
Looks pretty good, though I wouldn't put the word highlight 'behind' the word shadow. Conceptually it looks awkward. Maybe add a simple non-text logo in there as well.
>>
>>236789

I second >>236793

If you could somehow do both -- perhaps a very simple logo that incorporates the H in Highlight, you'd kill two birds with one stone

Can you help me by drawing in the picture where i should locate vents for my houses airconditioning.

Wouldn't /diy/ know better?

What kind of system are you even using? What are the laws for airconditioning in your country? Are we supposed to know everything here?

Anyone else colorblind here?
(got rejected by the army because of it. extreme deutan)

do you have any tricks to see color differences better in photoshop or programs alike?

Maybe study the colours numbers for RGB and CMYK.

I have book full of colours and their corresponding codes, if I could be any help I'll hunt out the name for you.

You have my sympathy, OP.
Can you comprehend reds, green and purples? Can you picture them in your head, even though you can't see them with your eyes?

How can I make colors that merge together in a subtle manner, like pic related?

I am using paint.NET becuase I'm a filthy nigger jew and I won't pay for my softwares.

Also good morning my firends

How the fuck am I supposed to know how to achieve a certain effect with godawful software noone even uses.
>>
>>236534
there is a tool in paint.net that does that for you, You just choose two colours and bam, so if you choose two colours that are of similar colour the gradient will be quite gradual
>>
>>236535
Okay, well if I pirate photoshop, will that have better tools when it comes to stuff like this?

Alright, guys. Despite popular opinion, I think we should start taking a swing at the /aco/ logo for the 4cc. I'm not saying we should make a team or even making the logo official, so calm tf down. I want this to be a comfy thread where we toss around logo ideas.

I brought up this idea to /4ccg/. Just an idea of Korra kicking a soccerball in the shape of a Mickey Mouse head (both of which I can see becoming pretty prominent to the board). Can anyone do a better job?

Since when do boards have logos?

Oh the cup, my head wasn't on straight. Sorry there.
