all the branches probably make it busy and hard to read in small sizes and contrast between rough and quickly drawn branches versus the smooth stuff makes it arguably look a bit unprofessional but that also gives it kind of a 90s an eerie cartoony indie game dev company charm to it. "Pathologic" game kind of vibe.
>>
>>310001
I'd say the branches are to jagged.
There are to many hard corners in it, makes it feel crowded.
Maybe spread everything out a bit or don't make the brnaches hang so low?

does anyone know how i could make an outer glow like this in illustrator? i tried using the photoshop effect gallery effects but none of them looked right. is this some sort of brush?
6 posts and 2 images submitted.

Doing it in Illustrator would result in a ridiculous amount of anchor points, what can you need it in vector for, that a really high resolution raster couldn't accomplish?
>>
>>309962
Yeah, apply a normal glow effect, create a layer mask and retouch the borders with your texture brush of choice. Maybe apply a slight Scatter filter?
>>
>>309962
use the outer glow effect in photoshop and turn up the spread and noise

learn typography, then learn how to design logos

Re-do the whole fucking thing. Jesus christ I hope that's not going to a client any time soon.

The Colors used don't fit well together. You could read about picking color pallettes and then decide what to do.This is important, learning what colors to use. Also, the font looks out of place. Try reading about typography, then try again. The Bird part looks decent, except for the back of the bird - try to keep the line at a constant thickness.

After 4 years i finally made it and if i have just one thing to say it's that you're awful. In 4 years of constant lurking i never see good creation on this board, so i have to say that u don't have the mind and the guts as a collective to be a part of the creative world that i cherish. You will never pay your bills with graphic design like i do today.

Why do people still get into graphic design, when ux design is where it's at. I just graduated with a master's in ux design, and it was so easy to find a job. I have no work experience at all, and my starting wage is $60k + great benefits.

I always wondered why designers had such a bad reputation, especially graphic designers.
Knowing tow graphic designers now, I understand what's the problem with these kind of persons.

They always like to show how much effort it takes to do what they do. How hard it is.
But I tell you something the whole graphic design bs is nothing but air. You can't teach someone to make something look good.

What's the design for?
Is it supposed to say "Cardinal"? It's really hard to read. The fact that I had to ask after spending some time deciphering it means you should definitely change it. If your client insisted on the font, persuade them to change it.
If this is meant to be a cover for something like a book or album, it needs more in the sense of time spent thinking of what'll make it clearer to understand, not just speaking about the font on this one.
Your colors are nice, but that's a really simple and easy effect you did, so I don't think you spent much time on that, but maybe overworked/thought on the font and design.
Ask yourself what the purpose of this is and then just think of what'll be understood the quickest and by the most amount of people.

How do I get started with design /gd/? I'm mostly a programmer and I have always sucked/shyed away from designing front ends.

Pic related is something I made recently. It got rejected for being too simple.

It's very very PowerPoint-slide-tier boring and could have some adjustments here and there but it doesn't offend me. Too simple often isn't a very valid criticism, too boring is.

Here are some more or less essential books to get you started:
https://mega.nz/#F!YkNhRLIL!cx4C_hWsuVOW-8K7O8MLtg

And learn Adobe Illustrator first. Getting your vectors down and appreciating shape a flat shape as it is is importent.

NexusFont will make your life easier once you start hoarding fonts:

Learn to distinguish quality typefaces from crap. Free typefaces are mostly crap.

Display or body? What's the content about? What's the intended message? Where will it be read?
>>
What's the best color?

Same vague question.
>>
Gotham, due to having humanist feel even though it isn't. Good both for body and display.

Akzidenz Grotesk Next for body for a slight vintage feel.

Can't really go wrong with Helvetica and it's derivatives, but it's a bit cold and generic and should be used mostly for display.

DIN Pro if you're going for a more technical feel.

Any idea why this is happening? I'm using CC 2017 and if I export the gif with transparency enabled pic related occurs but if i disable transparency it works fine.

Guess we are talking Ps
Take a look at your timeline and your layers
You should have just one layer on each frame
You are just adding new layers but not removing the previous ones.

>if i disable transparency it works fine.
cause you don't get to see the other layers
>>
>>309480
There is only one layer per frame, playing the animation via the timeline works fine and the issue only occurs when its exported with transparency.

That effect is so cheesy and overdone. I really hate it OP. What emotions are you trying to get across?

As for the type, it's not supposed to mesh well. You have a really visually intense image. If you try and make visually intense text, there will be no contrast and the two will compete for attention on the page.

Choose a lighter, neutral colour for the type and a clean sans-serif and it will feel balanced.

Need my ego/ puny attempt at design ruined by you. any critique is good, shit posting appreciated. If you want to still help me, follow this link and vote for mongoose marketing https://www.agorize.com/en/juries/0ttTEBLWnUvoTk2h4sVm4w

Mate, introduce some contrast and hierarchy in the text. Right now I have no idea where to look next, what's important, etc.

As an exercise, pick a paragraph you think is important, and give it a title at a font size way larger than the body text underneath it.

But you have a long way to go man, some really basic principles of balance, contrast, alignment being fucked in the arse real hard. No lube.

Gonna just pop in here for a quick question aswell:

What is the style of art of pic related called? Yes I know what it depicts. It popped up in a tv thread and some people asked what the style is called but no one seems to know.
