Lads, I need some help

I've been tasked with making the logo for a university project for a brochure that will be eventually handed to a mystery client.
Now, the only graphic design I do is dabbling around on GIMP such as messing around with layers, the script fu features, transparency and opaque nonsense.

Where do I start?

golden-ratio.jpg

alright /b/, I'm in my second semester of my graphic design degree and I need help understanding the golden ratio.

when I ask my professors they give me the definition of it but dont explain how to apply it to a logo. I don't understand how to apply the spiral to a logo or design either.

the approach I thought of applying to it was to create a series of circles with the values taken from the golden ratio and overlap them over a sketch of a logo and try to use curves taken from those circles to shape the logo. would that be the correct approach or am I over thinking it?

I know a lot of people may say you dont have to use the golden ratio but I really just want to understand it as another approach.

The golden ratio is literally a meme that's been passed down since the ancient Romans (probably even before).

It doesn't have much at all to do with design desu, though some swear by it. A logo made with the GR and one without won't really have any fundamental difference.
If anything, it's more restrictive than creative, because you end up obsessing about the numbers rather than what makes a good design.

Just let it go anon, a firm isn't going so jerk you off because you made a logo with the golden ratio.

I may try to dabble in it when I'm making simplistic logos. just to add something to it.

I read all of that and I still have no idea what their branding is or what they expect.

The branding is suppose to be malleable not only to various internationallities but the transposition culture of the internet. Typically when you use a wide spectrum of colors you're trying to communicate that youre able to cover numerous fields of whatever

Hey guys, I know NOTHING about graphic design, but I'm opening a restaurant soon and wanted to do something stylish with the menu. Well, after trying to do it myself and getting some rather sub-par results, I decided to just hire my nephew to do it for me.

The picture is what he sent me to use for the front of the menu.

Now to me, this looks fucking ridiculous. Like what the hell even.

I would normally just hire someone else, but I already spent the money and he has a masters in graphics design.

So perhaps I just don't get it or something? Looks like kind of a mess to me, but I figured I may as well get a second opinion.

What do you guys think? Keep it or hire someone else?

I've been learning photoshop for a few years now, but i really want to start graphic design, i've tried it, everything good, but nothing special, nothing hard, my best piece of work is something vaporwave (pic related).
Also, is a graphic tablet a good buy?

Hey working on this commission for a friend I wanted to render this logo in 3D but I have a problem when I loaded the graphic the original design is great but technically it's poorly crafted you can see when you zoom in the edges are rough and pixelated (SEE PHOTO 1) sooo i tried rendering it in illustrator as a vector to see if that would fix the problem and for the most part... it did pretty well except it's not staying true to the original... the most obvious difference being the curve on the G (SEE PHOTO 2)... anyone have any suggestions?? please and thank you this should be really easy fix but it's frustrating the fuck outta me

Never make logos in Photoshop because they need to be scalable without pixelating (raster).
Remake the logo in illustrator, get a laurel in a vector format and type the text again.
>>
>>297790
post the original logo i could try something, otherwise just use the white arrow for adjusting the bezier curves (every single one, you'll get faster with practice)

I usually ctrl+click the layer (white space) then ctrl+shift+i to inverse it so you then select the outer space, probably a better way of doing however

PewDiePie wanted to be a Designer before he started doing Let's Plays.
I Think he sucked pretty bad and would have a hard time getting an internship in a low quality design studio let alone at one of the best advertising agencies in Scandinavia, like the claims.
What are your thoughts on his work?

His parents sound like people with connections, which is the most important factor in getting a job.

There's definitely some standards met when dealing with the time period in question. But it reeks of not having a 'honed' eye but probably couldve followed the development which he clearly was keeping up with probably would be living in india on fiverr today

Also they have very nice art, some designs there are quite good and someone has put hours to make them perfect (not the one who is selling them though).
