My friend drew out a logo he wanted for his company, I turned it into a vector for him, looking for advice on how to color it. He wants the Land & Sea colored and the illustration lines. Can't seem to find a nice color scheme, he ideally wants earthy colors and a burnt orange.
Oh I've also just colored all the sections grey so it's easy to see.
Let's say, hypothetically speaking—because this has never happened to me, that a potential client emails me requesting a UI for some stupid mobile app of his, since he doesn't know anything about digital design. What's stopping me from using a free UI kit that I've downloaded from the internet, like this one from InVision for instance? I could just change some colors, slap a logo on it and call it a day. Some people don't have many customized requirements. They are free to use in both personal and commercial projects. What's stopping me? Why do these kits even exist in the first place? Who's buying them anyway?
To be fair, there's only so many times you can reinvent the wheel. Using proven and simple UI can fulfill requirements easily and effectively. On the other hand, that sounds pretty scummy. Maybe you'll feel bad? I wouldn't come to 4chan for a moral crisis.
just do it. Creativity and inspiration are just word we have to hide behind to let us copy some fellow's work and change few colors and stuff.
No one will never notice you took that UI even his creator. Those are so similar. The wheel example is perfect at that point.
The only thing is a lack of proud for not making it from scratch. Proud doesn't pay bills.
What does /gd/ use to display their works online?
I am currently trying to create a portfolio and I am barely able to contain my rage.
Every free Site has abysmal upload rates. Behance doesn't let me upload a video that is fucking 25mb. Carbonmate doesn't let me upload videos at all. Do I really have to shell out 8$ a month for premium hosting? Should I just get my own Wordpress Site?
i bought a domain name and host mine thru a free tumblr blog and coded it to how i wanted it to look. removed all the stuff that make it look like a tumblr blog of course like the follow button and all that
How often has this happened to you, honestly
Any graphic designers with depression here? How do you find motivation and inspiration to do any work?

Should designers get into web development?
It would open up so many more job opportunities.
Or will all code related jobs be taken over by AI?
Hey /gd/! I'm an aspiring,up-and-coming Twitch streamer looking for a graphic designer. The job primarily entails 5 videos(Youtube) a week(Mon-Fri).
Contact me at this email for more details:
hey /gd/ a couple of kids asked me to make them some fake ids, so i tried looking for templates to do it faster but I couldn't fin good quality ones, Is there somewhere I can get them?
I have a few questions for seniors in graphic design or for those who have already graduated in this major. If you could answer at least some of these questions, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Read any good books lately?
What is the culture among students in this major?
How would you describe the students?
What are they like?
What interests or values do they tend to have in common?
Were you easily able to find a job after school?
What kinds of projects or assignments were most common for you?
What were your favorite projects or assignments?
What were your favorite classes? Least favorite?
What were your favorites?
What drew you to graphic design?
Did you enjoy the learning experience?
If you were to go back in time, would you still choose this major?
Who would you recommend this major to?
>Read any good books lately?
No, not really. I don't read all that much, and design books don't really interest me.
I do however look at artbooks from games and movies. Yoji Shinkawa's art is bretty good.
To be fair, I should read more, but I don't have the time.
>What is the culture among students in this major?
Normie culture, whatever is in and popular at the moment. So mainly rap and hip hop. Though there are some people that aren't swayed by that sort of thing. It's a mixed bag really.
>How would you describe the students? / What are they like?
For the most part, lazy. They'd rather just take something off the internet and trace it rather than put the work in to make something original.
They mostly aim to do the least amount of work possible, skipping steps that lead to a strong design. Thumbnails for example, some claim it doesn't help them, but when they actually do them most of the time their work comes out many times better.
Even if it's their major, they still half ass things and refuse to learn outside of class. It's disheartening. There are some students though that really put the work in, and those who want to learn, and it shows.
>What interests or values do they tend to have in common?
I'm not really sure how to answer this. I guess most just want to make money, there's no real care for the art.
>Were you easily able to find a job after school?
I'm still in school, and I was approached by the graphic design department to work for them. I work full time, and I'll have a bunch of experience and pieces for a portfolio. I assume it will be easy enough to find a job. Especially with the contacts I've been making
>What kinds of projects or assignments were most common for you?
We did a lot of covers and posters for our classes. Honestly not that much in logos and branding.
>What were your favorite projects or assignments?
My favorite one was when we designed skateboard decks. I actually won an award for mine.
I really enjoy illustration, so I enjoyed projects that let me do that.
>What were your favorite classes? Least favorite?
Favorite classes were the design classes, least favorite would probably be life drawing.
>What were your favorites?
>What drew you to graphic design?
Whimsy to be honest. I was in a science major, but I noticed I did a lot of art. Decided to take the jump.
>Did you enjoy the learning experience?
Oh yeah, a lot of great professors. Really respectable people.
>If you were to go back in time, would you still choose this major?
>Who would you recommend this major to?
Those who enjoy creating and making things. People who are open to learning, and willing to put effort in.
Ah, sorry. I accidentally repeated the previous question.
Thank you so much, this was very informative. I got most of my generals done and am considering taking this path.
Sup guys, oldfag here.
I'm working on a website called 4kev and I need some new banners, can you help me out?
This is the best i have so far
My computer just commited suicide and need a replacement fast.. would like a laptop so I can be mobile but worried that most of the models I'm looking at don't have the power in need ... starting to lean in the direction of gaming laptops because of this pic related
Have to make this decision relatively fast max budget 1500 ?
Advice greatly appreciated
Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to get this effect? What program is used / technique?
>13 KB, 300x300
probably cinema 3d cylindric mapping can't see shit in your image.
I can't identify the font used in this album cover, does anybody have an idea?
What do you think of my logo /gd?
i really like color palette and the idea of the negative space but it needs a lot of work, the shape of the men makes him look very fat also it seems a little too big compared to the text
keep practicing, don't make the negative space feel like it was put there because of ''le negative space trend''.
Basically both images have to look good without eachother.
Try some more sketches with different images to portray your symbolism.
Like for instance the little cross is there but doesnt add allot.
When u look for better imagery to use try thinking of multiple versions of what u think represents doctors and fish, try to go more simple before reaching for omething like this
hello i think u have a good idea but u need work more in the man shape not only looks fat, he looks shapeless. fish is good. stetoscope may be in the head of the man not arround the graphic.
