I need to choose a font between Avant Garde Gothic, Futura, Helvetica and univers... I kinda like univers. What would be your choice here?
One of the Vignelli sanctioned ones, meaning Helvetica or Futura. It'd be Futura for me personally because I'm a sucker for geometric sans.
What are they for anyway? Are you buying them? How many weights?
How does make this old 40s/50s style artwork on a computer?
Pic related is what I'm looking for
What are some fonts similar to LIQUIDO?
Or any long, contemporary-looking, San Serif fonts, but with some melt or waviness in them?
Where can I find pro bono design work? I figure I can improve my portfolio and do some good at the same time.
Hey /gd/ this is my very first vector, what do you think?
It would look more interesting with some stroke width variation. Did you use a mouse? Structurally, it looks excellent (although i can't see how neat all your anchor points are). A great first attempt.
Does photoshop have something to make the thinking cloud shape? I didn't find it in shapes so I just drew it by hand. I was tired of working on the image too, so I didn't look very far.
Any tips to a GD student to make a good portfolio?
-only use pieces that make use of typography
-maybe use mock ups depending on the piece. i mean it'd be better to use your own photos for mock up shots but in some cases its acceptable.
-print on good quality paper not just regular copy paper
-dont use shitty resolution images
-have a order of presentation that makes sense. like dont use one single logo as a presentation piece then 5 pages later in your portfolio have that logo used for another project. keep related projects close.
im just throwing ideas out there. theres a lot of tips. talk to your professors or use google to research.
Sup guys, amatuear graphic designer here. Doing some logo concepts for a friends bracelet company. The two names he is between is crownwood (one word) and ascend wood - "The simpler the better". Give me some feedback on these, fonts etc.
if you want us to pick from the ones you have, the middle right one has potential. I would recommend a couple of possible changes:
either keep the spacing between the parts of the crown like you did on the left (starting thinner at the bottom and getting larger going up), or keep the spacing the same size all the way through (like on the right spaced section.
The font choice on that one is decent, i like the spacing, but it might be a bit large. Maybe try with a font that is a bit wider.and thinner, if the target group is females. if the company is a very luxurious then maybe try some sans serif fonts
maybe something in the line of >pic but thinner?
(Starting from the top left and going clockwise)
1. This is one is nice and clean but lacks any real personality imo, I like the way it looks but it doesn't tell me anything about what the company does or what it's even about. If I had to guess it might be something related to construction or building because of the font and the name. I like the idea of the A being part of the W but it feels a bit wonky, perhaps work a bit on the connection between the two? Despite being a bit cliche I like this one. :)
2. The font and the logo contrast each other a bit too much. The C gives me one kind of information, the "crown" W another. I also don't think this font is the way to go.
3. Cute but I read it as corn wood. Confusing font. and the logo doesn't really appeal to me.
4. I really like how coherent this one is. The font talks with the logo and they go really well together in a very minimalist way. I like this one as well. Play around with this one a bit more too, try different variations, perhaps lowercase since for some reason this one read strangely as well.
crownwood is easier to say than ascendwood. crown is a more common word than ascend. it makes it sound like a place or a theme rather than some kind of harry potter command. it sounds more regal and less pretentious.
about the crownwood logos, your logo in the bottom right is gorgeous. nice mix of that old-style typeface with that modern CW. the one centre-right could also be nice with a better typeface.
you have a great eye for a self-proclaimed amateur, but clearly need to explore some more typefaces. Gill Sans, Gotham, Akzidenz-Grotesk Condensed, Futura, Baskerville, Didot could replace some of them here and look way nicer.
As someone coming from Photoshop and moving into Illustrator to a make vector graphics, why is Illustrator so god damn unintuitive?
Why do I have to CTRL + Click a tool to select it's variation? Why can't I right click layers to change their settings?
There is literally NO cohesion between any of these programs, which is made worse by the fact they they LOOK so similar.
Yer talkin out of your ass m8.
Stop trying to justify using photoshop for vector work just because you're unwilling to learn a new program.
Moving from photoshop to ai was a literal breeze for me. I picked it up in like 15 mins. They're similar enough that it made sense without me having to sit through tutorials.
Sure there's some things specific to the program, but that's an easy enough quirk to pick up and keep going. They're 2 programs that do different things, you cant expect them to work exactly the same. But the UI is damn consistent for almost all the adobe programs.
>CTRL + Click a tool to select it's variation
Did you try clicking and holding? Because that's how it's done.
I heard something to the effect that adobe aquired the rights to programs originally from separate devs and eventually brought them all under the CC umbrella - that's why there's so much disparity between its programs workflows.
Could be a total crock of shit though. I've never bothered to actually look into it.
What do you guys think of the Ubuntu font?
Their competition use better looking fonts.
>macOS (San Francisco)
>Windows 10 (Segoe UI)
How do I get to post my work on this God level graphic design board called Dribbble?

Right now when I use photoshop I use the clone stamp tool to remove objects from the background and to blen the background. Is there a better way to do this? It's very time consuming and the results are sometimes not very good, so I end up having to start all over. Pic related I'm trying to remove the guy from the pic but blending the background to fit is a pain in the ass.
