>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]?
http://www.mediafire.com/download/027xjs3ujvyqxmd/Fonts.zip
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.

Since tumblr already got hold of the 1997-2002 design, can we just skip it and go straight into the mid-2000s?

Simple =/= lazy. The style has a purpose; it's designed to be legible on really small screens.

A flat circle is not only more legible on a smart phone than a realistic one, it also takes up less space, as the designers don't have to concern themselves with the socket around the button

Not a fan either. I'm fairly certain it was a throwback to 60's design with real chrome due to all the boomers retiring.

Hello, /gd/.

I'm new to Photoshop and I want to try some easy effects.

Looking for something easy to start with, I tried the "turn to stone" effect, thinking it would work well.

This is as far as I've gone, but the hair, eyes and eyebrows look awful.

How can I work with that to create a real petrification effect?

Any ideas/tips?

Source pics in the next posts, in case you want to show something with my picture.

Mitsubishi logo is a road going into the distance.
VW is literally the letters arranged in an aesthetically pleasing way.
Marlboro is focused on the red pentagon, not the negative space between it.
This calls out the pyramidal shape in a logo but ignores the literal cross.
I can't say for all of these but this is a reach.

Clearly you don't understand that art is subjective and that most artists are not "normal" lol what even is "normal"? People tend to have their own definition based on genetics and environment; people are not meant to all be the same (normal). If we we're, we would all be autonomous robots. We are made with design and purpose; not just some means to an end.

Post the best/most aesthetically pleasing flags. Old thread reached the image limit.

My contribution would be the Austrian flag, very striking and has an amazing legend.
>According to legend, the flag was invented by Duke Leopold V of Austria as a consequence of his fighting during the Siege of Acre. After a fierce battle, his white surcoat was completely drenched in blood. When he removed his belt, the cloth beneath remained unstained, revealing the combination of red-white-red. So taken was he by this singular sight that he adopted the colors and scheme as his banner

I'm assuming the town is named after Montpellier, France, in which case they have a typo for a name in addition to having a flag that's worse than aids.

my favorite flag since I was a kid I wanted to know the location of this country, that someday I will visit and not just a vacation

This is a time for joy and spreading some holiday cheer, but who are we kidding; the long queues at the supermarket,public transport delays and bare knuckle-fighting other shoppers for the latest must-have gift, all suck the fun out of the season.

But don’t worry Thin Martian and Fortune Media got you covered!

We came up with a great answer to the age-old question:“How can I channel all of my pent-up frustrations and still be able to share some holiday cheer with my loved ones?”

Easy, just write a holiday card using all the profanity that you wouldn’t be able to use in a regular card and let our Christmas magic do the rest.

Happy Holidays and enjoy creating your very own rude Christmas card!

The Elves at Thin Martian and Fortune Media

Is there anywhere I can get some nice uniform dev textures with numbers on it? I've tried searching the web and nothing comes up. GIMP is too much of a pain to use when centering and writing text.
