Hey, new to this kind of stuff and figured this would be the best place to ask about this.
A friend of mine asked me if I could help him make a box for a specific item of his. He wants to mock it up based off an existing box, I wanna know if there's any method (program/plugin to a program) to accurately re-create the original box the new one is going to be based off without scanning it? (Too big to scan)
I want to be able to essentially print the design to scale and just cut it out and have a custom box.
Any help would be appreciated on this as I have no clue how to go about it program wise.
I need crits. What is 100% glaring wrong about this?
I feel like the I is too long.
"I" is too long, and there's no visual connection between it and the type.
On top of that, it's right there on the "S" so it doesn't read as a separate letter. It reads as "Survived"
Do it all in white, and move the I to the left some more. Even then you're just polishing a turd pretty much.
What do you think about this? Is there something i should change/add? Any help and feedback is appreciated
not trying to offend you but it looks hideous at best, specially the blue background reminds me of hospital food or something. start over with a white, yellow or red background, and here's an idea that i just had instead of that cyan planet that looks like a bowling ball, why not use a burger inside the rings? and also the black ring looks kinda creepy but the layout of the text and fond seems fine the font choice could be better tho.
Pizza Planet must be doing pretty well for themselves to branch out into fast food burgers.
Why do a lot of people pirate editing software? Isn't it considered stealing, or are most people just don't care?
did you just woke up from a coma or something?
i think most people nowadays just don't like to pay for digital stuff like music, software, entertainment etc (after all is just copies of 0's and 1's)
back in the day only professionals could afford to pay +800 for a software (each year new version) plus if you look in the history of those companies (adobe, autodesk, microsoft) they're shady as fuck (monopolies literally), the guy that created photoshop leave the company long ago and is really unfair that you cannot own the software you could only pay monthly for it's use.
I'm studying graphic design for 3 years now, and we still haven't touched web design or web development,
so I figured it's time I go out on my own.
I'm good with designing stuff, I usually work in Ai,Id and Ps, mostly logos and posters.
So where do I start with web design?
As far as I've noticed most of websites are made on Wordpress, which even a halfwit can do with a simple tutorial.
I need some web developers here to help me understand where to even start with all this,
I still feel like (as a designer) using wordpress to make website from scratch is a bit of a cheating.
i'm in the samme boat as you, i just started learning last week, however i do have watched quite a few videos over the years explaining the basics of html, css, php etc. one thing that could be useful is to have someone to talk to about stuff that you don't understand, or just for tips.
>So where do I start with web design?
it depends i guess, i prefer paid video courses since they take the time to explains things, plus the end result is way more professional than other free courses imo.
>As far as I've noticed most of websites are made on Wordpress, which even a halfwit can do with a simple tutorial.
i think most people would rather hire someone else
>I need some web developers here to help me understand where to even start with all this
while i'm not a web developer yet i think a good start is getting sublime text it's really nice for learning webdev and after that just start messing with existing websites to get used to html and css, follow tuts/courses etc.
>I still feel like (as a designer) using wordpress to make website from scratch is a bit of a cheating.
i think so too, but i've seen most web developers nowadays use wireframes, libraries and assets they get from elsewhere.
here's some courses that i have on my pc (i just started with cs50 but haven't watched the others)

Where is my blur average ?
Here's the problem /gd/
I have to make an interior architecture catalog and I have to put the colors of a color chart.

My friend found this https://d13yacurqjgara.cloudfront.net/users/295355/screenshots/2699494/fbdribbble_1x.png
So I made pic related. Is that plagiarism?
Hey /gd/ multimedia design student here.
What are the design ethics/rules you personally follow and believe in?
I make sure to talk more than I work.
Have fun. Bee happy.
When I do work, it's just empty trope, hence I put my face in it, not because I'm a narcissistic talentless hack, but because I can.
If I lose market, I'll just wave my dick around as a promo stunt.
Need I mention that I'm a radical liberal?
Who am I?
Hi /gd/, any of you know what font is this?
does anyone know or is able to identify who made this?
Chris Parks of Pale Horse Design.
couldnt find the artist who made this, but a after an extensive google search i managed to find a clothing line that sells the design on their shirt, the company is called LY-1981. hope that helped OP
did I do good /gd/?
I am doing portfolio/editorial layout for screen and maybe print. Im at my wits end dragging images and text around my grid for them just to look shit, formal training would really come in handy. Are there any resources that helped you create great layouts. rip me apart /gd/. (by the way Heading font is Gotham and body is Akzidenz-Grotesk - this is probably a no no?)
The object who's prorperties repeat the most should be used as a basis for the grid.
That may be daunting so a straight forward approach would be to design a baseline grid where the body copy is the basis. Height of leading should then be used to set the grid vertically, with horizontal grid placement relying on column widths (that's based on text genre) and margins between columns. Google "baseline grid" you'll get plenty of examples and tutorials.
The Grid Looks like a good base to start with tho as said, a baseline grid will help.
If you mix fonts, take contrasting ones, not too similar ones. I'd ditch Gotham and go full Akzidenz.
For the layout, experiment, try things out, play.
How could images be placed?
What image sizes are good for tension or balance?
How do you create a Rhythm within the Sequence of your Spreads?
Hi, I started to build a couple fonts for myself. After designing them in Illustrator, I'm at a point where I would like to turn them into OpenType.
Has anyone any experience with one of the following programs? Any other tips you could share?
>FontLab Studio 5
I assume this is this your first font because you're using Illustrator. If that's the case, buy https://www.fontself.com/ and do the font conversion in-app.
If you enjoyed designing all the glyphs and genuinely think you want to do more, look into FontLab Studio or if you're a poorfag, FontForge. Both are very capable, but the latter has a steeper learning curve.
>wtf dude, designing anything in these programs is so weird and hard, why can't i just use Illustrator?
Mathematically it boils down to quadratic beziers vs. cubic beziers. But there's still more into it and Illustrator alone is not enough for Typeface Authoring even if it seems counter-intuitive. There's more to fonts than drawing glyphs.
i just started this course
>In this course, James Street shows you how to create basic fonts using the world's most powerful free and open source Unix-based font editor: FontForge.
Thanks for the answers!
Exactly what I was originally searching for! Cute, little plugin, that seems to have everything you need to develop and publish display fonts.
Looks really powerful and very much fun to use. I lean heavily towards FontLab Studio since I'm curious what I can do with scripting.
Pic related. Some old & shitty font, that I started to rework.
Anyone can explain me how make this colour effect?
