>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do free or even paid work sometimes. However, if you're new at something, asking "HOW can I X?" rather than "CAN YOU make X?" will give you better results.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

Electronic Gems has most of their thumbnails in this style, its so attractive. Any tutorials that show how to get images that have that old 80s-90s computer and worn out noisy aesthetic?I tried looking for who made them but no luck.
Or anywhere on the internet where i can find a lot of similar images?

on youtube you can search for 80s graphics playlists. there's also a plugin called universe vhs. for the 3D ask at >>>/3/ or maybe just learn an old 3d software.

I have a degree in design and work as a designer

Thinking about getting a Masters so I can land an art director job

any suggestions on what to study or good online master programs?
you dont need a masters, you need experience (8-10 years) and a great portfolio.
Lol. You think the degree will get you an art or creative director job? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Jesus, just spend that money and time doing actual work and building portfolio for a junior position, then climb the ladder you idiot
In all the years I've worked as a designer, freelance and corporate, and in ad agencies, I've never met anyone with a master's degree in it. The only master's I've seen are people with GD bachelor's, and get a masters in communications or marketing later, to move up into management.

imo people call "warm colors" those with high saturation and/or high brightness, while "cool colors" are those with low saturation and/or low brightness.
Search for youtube videos about this, the painting-focused ones explain it better.
The one time I thought I understood it the teacher told me I was showing saturated and desaturated colours not warm and cool.
Saturation is about how much black or white is in a color. Dark and cool refers to the undertone of a color (the hue). A pure white, gray, or black can’t be cool or warm, but it does have saturation.

warm/cool isn't the same as saturation, the picture you posted incorrectly labels warm/cool and are actually found on the face of your image. Cool colours have blue /green/purple tones, and warm colours have red/yellow/orange tones.

Saturation has to do with pure colours vs. faded/darkened colours like >>381106 says.

Think of it like the colours created from mixing pure blue, red and yellow pigments are the most saturated and the addition of white or black to the hue desaturates it (of pigment).
You should study observational painting.

If you can master the 3 primary colors and their properties you will understand all colors.

And we're still talking about the branding today. The roots of any branding or campaign will have the same sort of pseudo-intellectual backing to it. The biggest problem Pepsi was implementation.

If you want to look at Arnell's "failures," try looking at his Tropicana rebrand.

Greetings /gd/

So is my first time trying to create a typeface, I'm starting from good ol hand sketching, so far so good, but when the time to pass it to digital, I'm completely lost on what software to use.

I've done some research and found out most type and font programs are exclusive to MAC, witch I have zero experience and resources.

What are some good viable options for begginers on Windows? My first thought was to do it in illustrator, just vetorize the whole stuff and make the necessary adjustments and so.

Please show me the way /gd/ fellas

Pic related are my first sketches.

Criticism and tips are very much appreciated too.

Thank you kind anon.

gonna tryout that plugin them.

have a fruitful day.
I highly recommend taking a scan of your sketch on gridded paper into said program (Adobe Illustrator). It will make your life a lot easier. Also, if you're totally lost, check out Thinking With Type. It's a very good book to generally look at and refer to for beginners in typography. Pretty sure you can pick it up off of Amazon. In the meantime, just keep doing research on how to build a working typeface. Best of luck.
Well appreciated advise anon, thanks.

yeah i have a scanner on my printer, gonna look how to make a grided A4 paper on Illustrator then.

Im sketchin it on a A3 paper, but will cut in half to fit in the scanner.

Will check that book out also.

Many thanks.
>how to make a grided A4 paper on Illustrator then.
Long click the line tool. There's a grid tool in illustrator.
OP here, been looking for a cracked version of the FontSelf plugin, does anyone have it? Or a reliable place that i can look into? google searches gave me some suspicious site with "disable you antivirus and run our .exe here" kinda of donwloads.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah my whole adobe stuff is pirated.
