How do I make Windows 2000-ish design?
I have difficulties with formalising it, what are the major points of it?
keep the number of pixels down to mimic the text first off. thin lines with thin drop shadows. doesnt even have be a gradient like in this example. choose boring colours and enough white highlights. terrible fonts. small type. all this shit looks retarded anyways so whatever
I LIED ON THE PHONE INTERVIEW AND SAID I KNOW IN DESIGN.
THEY WANT ME TO START MONDAY.
Is this a good book to cram?
Any other recommended tutorials?
Should I major in graphic design? Is that a good idea right now?
Minimalism got me, friends... Don't know how to get rid of it. I just like this shit, both in print and on web, but it seems "normies" don't.
How can I cleanse my taste?
'Make /gd/ Great For The First Time' Edition
I reckon it's time for us to adopt the /general/ system like the other boards. Lots of stray threads that I know most of us don't like.
Other than individuals who have a lot of their own work to post, I suggest we use the following for all other posts:
/crit/ - critique general
/qtddtot/ - questions that don't deserve their own thread / stupid questions
/Ps/ - Photoshop general - Sharing tutorials / asking for tips / sharing Ps resources (e.g. Brushes)
/Ai/ - illustrator general - same
/Id/ - Indesign general - same
/fst/ - Font share thread
/typeface/ - Typeface discussion general - tell us how much you love Helvetica Neue
/whatthefont/ - What Font Is this? General - for when WhatTheFont isn't working
/insta/ - Instagram whoring
/portfolio/ - Portfolio whoring
/employment/ - Work discussion
/inspo/ - Inspiration general
/howto/ - 'How to achieve ___ effect?' thread
Suggestions? Good list? Bad list? Fuck off nobody cares?
Tell me how you really feel about /gd/.
These are the only worthwhile ones
They alone will drastically cut the mess of the board without sacrificing the free flow feeling around this place
As someone whose home-board switched to a rigid structure of generals, let me tell you,. Enjoy the abstract. Some generals are good. Too many stifle, and for an artistic board that's a problem
maybe an adobe general since there isn't a lot of people on here and instead of instagram one like the /ic/auto-promotion could work better
also a few others ideas from different boards:
vaporwave/glitch -these were successful last couple times
also make a strawpoll for voting which of those threads could be implemented
and finally since you're the one that suggested it i think you could be the one who makes those threads otherwise people will just dismiss the idea
I'm looking at Affinity Photo because I'm sick of just about everything about Adobe, their products and subscription model. Looks pretty good for $40. Anyone using it? Thoughts? Also, how about Affinity Designer for web and app design?
I was on the beta, actually liked it. Theres a few differences in controls from Photoshop but its stll the closest alternative there is. Its also super cheap (it goes now for 40 euros) so I thinks its worth it. Gonna buy it myself. At least I know im not overpaying for it.
Theres a few annoying bits when you move over from photoshop, like the fact that you cant crop image out of your selection, but i think itll get there and once you understand the fact that it does NOT have to be a 1:1 copy of photoshop, youll be just fine.
>but i think itll get there and once you understand the fact that it does NOT have to be a 1:1 copy of photoshop, youll be just fine.
my thoughts exactly
Also this is just shilling but I have a strong feeling that if you requested that select-crop feature from the devs you'd get it implemented on the next release guaranteed. Serif's folks actually care about the customer unlike Adobe who want to suck shareholder's cocks.
I've used Affinity Photo and Designer only marginally but they're extremely stable and fucking fast.
yeah I actually wonder, out of 15,000 employees that Adobe has, how many of them are actual software developers?
Exactly the same problem with Autodesk. For example, the monthly subscription for 3ds max is 230 euro. Both of these companies need a fucking reality check.
For After Effects, Is there a good free source for templates? All that I can find are paid stuff.
Any good forum or repository you can recommend?
does any one know the caligraphic font here? or something similar?
What's he looking at?

Hello, these are my first attempts at making still art.
There's this typeface called Intelo which is currently 80% off its original price, and is selling real good on MyFonts, ranking at #8 on top sellers and #1 on hot new fonts.
I'm considering on buying, since it is so cheap at $36 USD, but I'd rather read what you guys have to say.
What kinda effect is this?
