How quickly can you shop an image?
1 internet to whoever can do a better job than I did. Providing the source material in the coming posts.
How did rave promoters and designers make these?
i don't know if this is the right board to ask for this but i really need a white background removed for the attached image
thanks in advance
it's not the right board, but whatever
I want to vent some things here about the industry...
First, i'm 23 yo and recently i finished my career in communications and i'm specialized in production and post production. By my own i learned through the years about graphic design and also learned the softwares that this industry uses the most (After Effects, Premiere, Audition, Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, Indesign, Corel, Flash). So i can say i'm a very prepared guy even for my age.
6 months before finishing my career i was hired as a producer, editor and animator on the best advertising agency of the city (i'm from México, sadly), i started off with $6000 pesos per month (the equivalent to 300 dollars i think, i know, it's shit) even though i already had 2 years of experience.
Then, recently one of my best friends who is a graphic designer got hired because i recommended him to the art director, everything was going well until i found out his salary, he earns $9000 pesos per month (it's still shit but for a guy like me that would be nice), problem is, HE DOESN'T HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE, AT ALL.
I'm super mad at the agency for that, everyone here literally knows how much i work (even at home) and then a new guy comes here and they give him simple tasks and give him quite more money than they do to me and my colleges.
I'm not even mad at him, good for him, i'm mad at the fucking agency.
tl;dr: My agency pays more to a newbie with no experience than to a 2 years old experienced producer.
Is there something i'm missing? Why are they paying more to a newbie?
What should i do? Prepare a good reel and gtfo to a better city or country?
How would you go about recreating this effect?
There's a software called processing which kind of lets you run code on images.
It's pretty popular for data-moshing and pixel-sorting.
Lots of people make scripts for it and upload them for anyone to play with.
Just google "processing ascii generator" or something like that

reduce opacity on the triangle, add some more layering/masking to it give it some texture/patterns
Just downloaded illustrator and came up with this from scratch, how did I do?
It's been done a metric fuck ton of times. Why not experiment and create something original?
Is Roboto + Alegreya a good combination of free fonts for a magazine.
I was curious /gd/, how many of you actually care about the colour space that you work with? What do you think about gamma-incorrect blending in a vast majority of applications, including many compositing applications used by artists such as yourselves?
And if you do muck around with colour spaces, what do they mean to you?
I get pretty annoyed with the CMYK color space (or gamut ?) for how limited it is and how many of what I consider "beautiful" colors are excluded by it. Never had much problems with Adobe RGB, so I don't really think about it
Honestly, unless I'm designing for print I don't really worry about it. I don't do video or super high-profile stuff and 99.9% of normal people don't have their displays calibrated properly anyway.
Maybe I should start considering these things, though. How important is this shit when your work is only output digitally anyway?
What does GIMP need to become a serious contender in the industry?
It's already usable.
I think the interface is alright with the new themes in 2.9.
There is no better brand than "Green is my pepper"
>32 bpp support
>edit rotated text
>select multiple layers
>better integration with Inkscape, Scribus and Blender
This is a logo for a plumbing/cleaning/waste dealing company. Any tips or ideas?
made the head bigger and image simpler
maybe try better colors, the grey is flat and willdissappear
So I tried two different designs, removing the bulky hexagon from the spray bottle. You think it's still too detailed?
Hi amazing anons of /gd/ - is there any way to make my path like the one on the right, without having to remove the whole path and do that specific part with the rounded pen tool?
I tried now everything and I can't even get the usual lines to appear where you drag the path to be rounded shape
Could someone tell me exactly color balance and hue saturation works.
I'm scanning something, and it's coming out extremely yellowish for some reason, and I can't seem to fix it no matter how I mess with the hue saturation.
Top is a digital version of the image that's been on the internet.
Bottom is the version I scanned.
Is there any possible way to make the bottom one look like the top color wise? Because my scan is more crisp and clear that the digital version, but the colors are all off.
Here's the PSD.
I'm either doing it wrong, or it's just not possible to fix.
Because getting the skin tone to match on the bottom image makes everything else in the image look drastically different.
The rest of the colors are not that far off, it's just the skin that looks awful because it's so yellow.
Maybe I'll just have to make a mask around the skin areas and selectively edit those parts.
I was just hoping there would be a way that took less effort.
I make these in my free time and plan to make stickers to earn some extra cash
Are they shit? Are they good? How to improve?
Can I get a freelance job doing these?
Very awesome, keep going on. Illustration is hard. The magic ball seems very much how it's supposed to be. Tip to improve - try to continue drawing of the graphic in this particular case of the magic ball with hands. Make arms, torso, etc, continue the drawing.
How do you create a good memorable yearbook that isn't cheesy or too simple?
Good luck with that. Your best is to get inspiration from like, "family-friendly" brands like Target and Ikea: Big splashes of flat color, bold but minimalist type. Dynamic layout, lots of breathing room, very few ornaments.
see this kind of shit (courtesy of Urban Outfitters) ? Do that.
this is if you want it to be high-effort
