Complete newfag here. I'm trying to learn some GD on my own. Got two random words generated and made this logo of it. What do you think? Should I kms already?
>This position will start on a freelance, trial basis and will develop into a full time position for the right person.

Why do these companies think they can ABUSE designers like this? I'm applying to places in NYC. Who the fuck are they kidding? NO ONE can survive in NYC on a temp salary or "freelance" contract where they can terminate when at any moment.
if you don't have trust fund bux from your parents to prop you up then you should probably let go of the dream of living in a city like New York for now.
It's time to face the fact that this country is an oligarchy. If you're not from old money, you're fucked. Don't expect companies to have pity on you.
I should've mentioned i currently do work full time in NYC but looking for a more challenging position. currently work a design/codemonkey job
I just feel bad for these companies. I literally close the tab when I read these. They're alienating everyone with a full time job when they make temp positions. NO ONE would leave their job to work temp. Nobody. It's ridiculous.
Then, I just hope to god they become frustrated at the end of the day when they get all crappy applications because they're too wishywashy to offer a full-time.
What angers me the most about said companies is that they'll always keep their reputation intact and they will always have the upper hand and they will always be seen as a demigod and you always have to present yourself with humiliation, because they don't want 'ego people', but 'working people', aka slaves.
I have never done anything about design, and I'm pretty a shit at it.
however I had an idea drew this.. I'd like to make a tshirt with an allover print
what do you think? do you like it?
Nah, dude. That flame design is old, overdone, super dorky, and just plain bad. That shirt would make you look like an old bald dude who loves classic cars and has erectile disfunction, or a clueless third grader from 1998.
Keep working at designing stuff, but go in a different direction, because this isn't good.
Pic related, bottom right corner.
Doing a little project focused on showcasing Kanji with a little graphic/illustration.
I'm caught between wanting to display the Hiragana reading for the character, and not.
Which do you feel is stronger, if any?
Kanji is 二 and it reads as に(Ni)
Was going to post this in the general, but I can't find it/it's too low down, sorry.

Creating my first letter head. Is this terrible?
General advise thread?
Hello /gd/ I'm on a team in charge of a gallery exhibit about rock.
The people I'm working on want something really interactive, but I have little idea on how to archive it.
I know video mapping, but I'm interested in software used by museums for interactions, all that I want is to the user to push a physical button and make SOMETHING happen on screen.
I'm making a Bootstrap website for a club in Arizona. I'm trying to figure out a color scheme using the Arizona flag. Should I make the website background blue? Maybe a red navbar with yellow text? It just sounds like a lot of colors. So I'm not really sure what to do. Any tips would be appreciated.
How would I go about making an image's file size larger? Should I use certain colors/patterns or what?
I'm trying to make an obnoxiously large image that will take an extremely long time to load. Pic somewhat related, I actually have it up to 50k pixels tall now, but it's still only 700kb in size.
i think changing the compression could be more faster, or maybe some steganography method -link below
What's the best method to crop(lossless)/optimize pictures for social media? By preference as square proportions.
I like uploading paintings on normiebook but I want it to be the accurate size and proportion.
Any guide on this or tips?
I use Krita and gimp.
Photoshop is fine. There are also some dimensions you can look up if you want to make sure a certain part shows up in thumbnails/etc., but that really only matters if you're doing company branding and need to have text show up properly.
Also, Facebook's compression is complete ass and I honestly wouldn't worry about it too much. I'd even suggest only posting cropped versions on FB and directing people to your actual site/portfolio/whatever you use to see the full thing.
I want to get this printed on a black shirt (an album cover btw, I didn't design it), through some website.
I figure the black of the image doesn't need to be printed (plus seeing the edge of the image would look ugly), so should I do anything other than using a magic wand/filtering out the blueish-ness of the image?
Will some printing sites do these sorts of things automatically in the printing process anyway?
What site should I use?
Also here's what I've already done, some of the letters are a bit rough though. It might be easier to just make a clean cutout of the head wouldn't it?
Anon, don't cut the head using a wand, you won't be able to do it. Use the pen tool instead, and draw lines around the contour yourself. Then just wash 1-2px on that contour so it is not extra sharp and you should have a decently cut out head, then just cut the letters with a very lo-sens wand, or simply type the letters yourself.
Tear this logo apart /gd/
It's a bit too sterile for something that's probably supposed to appear more playful
I like the U concept.
I don't understand where "Do your Wurst" fits in with a catering company besides being a funny pun. It's a bit forced.

how did artists like eduardo paolozzi create prints like this without computers?
