>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.

Designs should fit the audience segment. To you they look terrible because those magazines usually cater to people with taste that seem poor or tacky to you. Try to be a more understanding designer. You think being a designer is merely being “le aesthetic” and always following the newest trends? You probably make few money because you exclusify yourself to a certain kind of crowd.

What is a “good design”? What if the design satisfies the customer segment?

Just go to design school already so I don't have to answer these stupid half questions.

What should I do to make my first portfolio? What kind of fake projects? Book cover redesign? Album cover redesign? Poster redesign? Famous logo redesign?

I’m 25 years old and currently working as an SEO Specialist. I graduated as a Bachelor of Economics and I’m really aspired to be a graphic designer. Maybe I’ve been socially too anxious thus not allowing me to have a fun college social life, so now I still crave to be part of the ‘cool cats’ ecosystem. Plus I’m an ISTP and I really like the whole idea of visual communication.

Is graphic design a good career choice? Is it a good decision to shift my career path at this age? Where would graphic designers be when they’re 50? There’s no way they would still be hanging with the youngs, right?

I’m still looking at books to buy before trying anything.

Hello fellow chan designer,
Is anyone of you here on youtube?
I'm searching someone to collaborate, animations, design anything similar!
youtube.com/c/fortytwo42

Not bad, but have to say: it seems like a much less professional Kurtzgesagt rip off. Animation is fine albeit a bit amateurish but the sound quality is horrible.

Any help getting a hand getting my hands on it? Googling "Retro Warmth font" and "free" in different variations has yielded nothing...
>>
>>356021
Hi. I just posted this, please ignore. I thought "Retro Warmth was the name of the font, and not a separate product.

I feel like I've made an ass out of myself.

Thank you for your time.

no worries dude.
Easy mistake to make.

uhh.. so whats the font name then? Looks great

>>356047
I don't remember. Shortly after my second post admitting I got the name wrong, I slapped my forehead, fed that jpg through Whatfontis, got something, and it still cost money and seemingly impossible to find otherise. I think I remember the foundry was Latinotype, but I can't recall ATM (not home)

I noticed a lot of them have illuminati symbols, the eye, the pyramid, often inserted in very subtle ways. I am wondering what kind of instructions is given.

Just look at the thread, normies can't see it.

I'm saying that if a real conspiracy wouldn't be so stupid as to leave intentional clues, then if you think you see intentional clues left by a conspiracy it isn't real.

Actually, the Mitsubishi logo is a mon (Japanese heraldry). But that's a fun reinterpretation.

Guys, i come here with a request so please help me out. I was mugged last night and my laptop was taken away. In that i created some fictional apps and some other stuff too. The fucked up thing is that i need to submit the stuff in the next 48 hrs, if not then its gonna cost me a fuckin year. So i need your help please. I need some 3 fictional app design, 3 flyers and 4 posters. All with AI file cause i need to explain them too, cause i have a fucked up reputation with teachers. Please help me guys.please
>>
>>356054
I'm sorry your property was stolen. I really am, and no one deserves to suffer like that.

But as to your request, absolutely not. It would be plagiarism to pass off another persons work as yours, and the consequences would be much worse than explaining a dire, unforeseen situation that would require an extension on the due date.

Seriously. Don't go to /wsr/ or /r/ either. Academic plagiarism will hurt you much more.

Sorry, to bother. I made a logo, some years ago and do find only the ong of it. I have absolutly no clue what font I used.
I probably made the green shadow myself by cloning the font, so it is not part of the font.
Any ideas?

have a look thru these
https://www.fontspace.com/category/multi-line
or use the tag double line font or multi line font in google

You have to be like a detective. How long ago did you make this? Do you use Time Machine as backup? Maybe you can go back to when you made this is see the files that define the font?

hey trying to make a picture for my little sister of her and her horse and my late father, who passed last year. i want to see if anyone can photoshop the cars and people out of the background, or just select them out and make the background plain. idk really just want to get rid of everything else, i might encapsulate it in a crystal or something like people do. if someone can help ittl be cool.

bumping for results, this would make my day, and it will be a really nice present. maybe one of you could help me out i feel like it’s easy to do but i’m without skills in photoshop.

I mean, you're trying to guilt us into doing a commission, which a lot of people do, I don't do things for free because dead people are in them, also you didn't even read the board rules before posting, you just dropped off your "I want" list before anyone agreed to accept your comission
