Remember me? No? I created the "Minimalist Pepe" Design a while back, and it was pretty popular on /gd/. Actually it was so popular that people started stealing it and putting it on shirts, etc. So I ended up doing it myself. ( https://www.redbubble.com/people/tdawgdesigns/works/23851711-pepe-the-frog-flat-design )

I just got the embroidery file for this thing and was wondering, Would it be cool to start some sort of clothing line featuring it? Would there be buyers?

My first idea was to make a "dad hat" and i'm probably going to Lids today to get a test version. Let me know if this is something anyone would be interested in.

>will this not work because of pepe being a hate symbol?
well is not necessarily a hate symbol, its just a side character on a comic, i wouldn't say it's super popular but normies seem to like it and even katy perry and niki minaj have posted pepe's on twitter.
maybe if you make a collection with different ones and somehow promote the designs but dunno if they will sell or not tbqh.

I think it's an uninspired, reddit-tier design that has been made a billion times before and it's badly executed.

>I started... like two days ago
Well that explains a lot.
Your main problem here is alignment, makes the whole thing inconsistent
>picrelated
try using illustrator's guides to help you place things properly. You can also put a picture of a real joystick in the background to have as reference of where each thing should be.
Also, don't get lazy, that thing is missing lots of purple.
Good luck OP, we will all say your stuff is shit until you eventually stop making shit.

filename dot txt

they're heraldry-derived so they're kinda stodgy and formal, there are a ton of different heraldry rules that are mutually exclusive and autists will pick on you if you mix and match even though almost no other recent example cares, mostly just don't overuse them the classic examples are either family name or 1-4 word motto.

They were originally speech scrolls, like ancient comic speech bubbles, before they were picked up by heraldry.

The problem with it is, that it looks like it is supposed to be used in a video to illustrate a "Spanish" or "Italian" castle, only seen for a few seconds on screen. Especially the direction of sight in the eyes makes it look too distracting for a logo, as it forces the viewer to look the to upper left, away from it, to see what it is looking at.

Photoshop Collage methods. Do you use lots of layers, lots of filters? Interesting mask techniques? Post some work? Will look it up on Lynda but also want to know what /gd/ has to offer.

Bumping with images of collages I found that I consider good work and want to try to get as good as in my own Ps collages.

I helped a friend with a logo so now he thinks I'm his in-house designer and keeps asking for other stuff. I've made brochures, banners, and also designed his website. All this for free because I'm too much of a cuck to say no.

you're going for a kiwi facing right/a dove facing left, right? the kiwi is really obvious but the dove's beak being hidden behind its breast makes it tough to pick out.

How do you come up with a design name? If you want to go solo. Use your name or some other branded name?

Who does the audience follow more, the name or the brand?

>Use your name or some other branded name?

Interestingly, I've thought about this a lot and asked around. I've heard professors scoff and say no to suing your own name, and would rather you come up with a brand, and I've heard freelancers that got picked up professionally say to just use your name, and let your work brand you.

After talking to some friends about this, it makes sense.

An educator would rather you create a new brand for the sake of making you do a class project and applying learned concepts to your brand.

A person practicing design with natural talent and loads of work already under their belt only needs to put their name in a simple fashion to start their "brand".

So essentially, If you have no good work to your name, might as well start with a brand name to "start" your work, and if you already have god-given talent and good work, you only need your name to attach to it.

using your name is by far the most professional, but the harsh truth is that if you're from a different country, or your name sounds bad, you're fucked.

however, if you're pitching to clients that never heard of yourself, you can come up with a fancy sounding name.
