I'm looking to get started on Graphic Design, which adobe program should I use? I can only afford one.

I should mention that I am also a web designer so I'm looking to just get the basics so I can make logos and stuff like that.

>InDesign
>Illustrator
>Photoshop

I read that Photoshop can do a lot of the stuff that is needed for basic design stuff, like logos and things like that.

Trying to not flame you here. You're effectively asking "Should I learn to grill meat or bake cake?"

Your question itself implies that you don't know enough to even be purchasing one in the first place, as they are 3 separate programs - each stellar in their own regard, but also very (basically) very little overlap.

But. You did say "one program". so. If you wish to pursue graphic DESIGN, then get Illustrator. If you're more leaning towards being a graphic ARTIST, start with Photoshop.

Ah shit yeah I don't know anything about this stuff, just trying to expand my skills as a web designer. I want to be able to make logos and stuff like that for my client's websites.

What exactly is the difference between a graphic designer and a graphic artist? What do the two do?

I know I could google it but 4chan people are more practical in explaining things

>What exactly is the difference between a graphic designer and a graphic artist? What do the two do?

This is just my own personal definition... but I've been doing this for 20 years, so I feel qualified to give the opinion...

Design is about communicating a brand, a message.

Artist is about communicating an emotion or feeling.

So - in your case - client logos - it's about branding. Go with Illustrator.

How to start using this?


I already know how to use photoshop.

Start learning how to trace images with the pen tool.
>>
>>307532
what's with /gd/ and tracing images? i've been working for a living with illustrator for 10 years and i've very rarely did hand tracing.
anyways OP, learn to use curves, learn to edit them, understand colors and color mixing in different color spaces (RGB, CMYK).
>>
>>307537
i think he meant that you can learn to use the pen tool by tracing images/drawings, i can't think of a better way of learning it (i also have taken a few courses for lettering, illustration etc and every single one recommend tracing sketches)

i've been working with ai for 6 years and i use the pen tool/tracing (with my own drawings/sketches) probably in 7/10 projects

Hi /GD/, I need help with a base design for my car. How does one go about making backgrounds?

Any graphics designers that could help out and give rough quotes?

Kind of been trying to get this done for the last 5 years but I can't do the design by myself.

How do I motivate myself to keep practicing vector programs?

From what I can see vectors are a lot more work for less results compared to drawing with something like SAI.

I would reposition the "JC" and put way more down within that frame. Also maybe not in a bold font, that makes it a bit hard to read on first sight.
Keep in mind how the result will look like and not where the outline of the letter is while editing it.
Remove the black border around the brown part. Your info a tad smaller and more into the corner.
The banner thing also smaller, you need more empty space. And overall that grey border around it seems unnecessary.

Also is "Keep il Simple" intentional? You should do what your motto says honestly.
And since when is almost a square a good format for a business card?

By the way, the colors make it look like the business card of a chocolate store or something.
>>
Its a front and back vertical card. Not a square. the grey border is because I just took a screen shot of my AI file for the purpose of this post.

front

I'm sure you guys get this quite a bit, but I'm looking for a logo design, I'm willing to pay, someone just paid me like $60 on venmo for editing a video for them, so I'd be willing to just transfer that $60 to you for making a simple logo. I'm redoing my website (just a smugmug, but it'll do) I have an upcoming photography show, and just really need to get everything updated. With that being said...

The logo I want, should just be a simple logo, probably convey that I'm a photographer

I would prefer it to be square

Two versions, 1 with just the logo, and another with the logo and my name next to it.

I will also need the illustrator files to get screenprinted shirts and a hat for myself.

I would prefer the logo to be in either pure white or #1e1e1e dark grey, and possibly with a red #7e0404 accent of some sort.

For my information, this is my instagram instagram.com/kazcanning , I'm just going to be using my name KazCanning.

Maybe it doesn't even have to convey photography, just sleek and nice looking like this other photographer I like, his logo is at the top left http://www.lik.com/

I trust that you guys can make something good, I usually like the designs I see on here. If you're interested, you can just leave a low res jpeg or a watermarked one, and we can exchange info for the delivery and payment. If you have any additional questions, I'll be on the thread to monitor.

Thank you

That's hella cheap for a logo,
Normal price for a logo as far as i know would be between 100 and 200.

It looks pretty good actually also!
>>
>>307761
Agreeing with this.
You could've charged at least double for it.
As you first it job it probably was the right thing to do, because you don't have a portfolio yet
>>
>>307760
dude don't shortchange yourself. a lot of work goes into a logo from conception to drafts and finally the finalized piece. some clients will try to wring all they can from the arrangement by sending you back to the drawing board numerous times only to pick the very first design you came up with.
with that in mind, try charging at least 150 if you're new, and as you get more established, go 200 to 250.

Hey guys, I have been getting more and more interested in learning UX/UI design lately but I don't know where to start. All my professional colleagues and friends do printed, package or web design so I don't really know where to start. Anyone here who is working in the UX/UI field mind telling me where I should get started to learn? I have read articles online, and they are all divided between "take a class online" or "just read and learn". Also I assume CSS/Html are a must, correct?

Start trying to recreate webpages/splashpages you like via Photoshop/Illustrator. Yes, learn CSS/Html; you can take apart free layouts to get the idea.
