How exactly does waifu2x work when not resizing? It smooths out an image better than any program I've tried to use to achieve the same effect with noise reduction.

I've been seeing a lot of Sam Hyde's graphics from his ex-TV show World Peace along with his YouTube channel. He is really gifted and found his style, which I may label as propaganda-esque. Post similar stuff to what Sam Hyde has made

definite Y2K vibe but it has more edge to it, in motion everything is hectic like a fever dream of drugged up teenager on the verge of snapping
very cool and distinct aesthetic, too bad Turner has had this show cancelled with no explanation

here are full bumps
That's where you're wrong bucko
GFX was Sam's career for years
he didnt do anything on mde. he freelanced for a bit after college and that was it
That's really wrong man, Sam and Joel did graphics on MDE for years. Later Sam stepped away from it but for WP, him Joel and Ryan from Pomp&Clout did all the graphics with a super tight deadline. If Sam is good at anything, it's his GFX. HWD is really terrible but the newest one has great bumpers.
He worked with brooklyn based studio Pomp&Clout for the visuals on World Peace.
He definitely took part in the art direction.

Just because something is small doesn't mean you can't have any detail whatsoever.
This newest logo, as well as the oversimplified geometric-sans bargain bin bullshit that's been peddled ad nauseum will age like fine milk.
first, tiny detail already was lost on Firefox logo, unless you were looking at it on a high DPI screen. see for yourself, picrelated compares two icons of about the average onscreen resolution of a Windows icon. to say nothing about tray icons.
second, a logo should first and foremost commit to memory. it should be instantly recognizable and be distinctive. this is textbook truth of logo making.
any fine detail serves little to no purpose on a logo. it complicates the image, it makes the logo harder to adapt to different sizes, and if any of that minute detail would change, would anyone notice? then why it is here, anyway?
you can argue about detail all you want, but try and find me any good and/or famous logos that actually do have very small, fine detail. let's see how many you can find. so tell me again how it's going to age "like milk".
also, here's a great article: https://www.boredpanda.com/famous-brand-logos-drawn-from-memory
basically, they asked a bunch of people to draw some logos from memory, like Apple, Adidas, Ikea, etc. and what an irony, almost no one could get the Starbucks logo right. only 6% got near perfect drawing. 55% forgot to draw the tails, 45% forgot the tiara. and that's for one of the most famous brands in the world.
so, you're telling me they need to keep detail smaller than that?
Coffee fags can't tell their own logo from a pleb on the street

How do you make a goog gig on Fiverr so you can get some clients? Or are there better alternatives?
just google design marketplaces. for fiverr its only worth it if you can shit out a design every half an hour like cartoons characters etc
Not really related but the picture you used is from a French YouTuber, amazed me to see it here!
I had no idea what image to start the OP with.

I think there is not enough padding on those requirements cards. I would remove some of the margin, and increase the padding.

Are you trying to fuck with me? Are you?
I think the drop-down is a little ducky. The radius makes an odd gap between the input and the selector. Also, what would it look like if the drop-down didn't have do much shadow on it? Maybe more like the cards? It just seems like the second are really high above the current option.
Aside from that, holy smokes that's some hot design bruh
a bit more padding and it'll look very good

I use photoshop for everything, I don't see any issues with my methods. Can someone explain why or when I'd use illustrator and indesign over photoshop?

OP is retarded. Do you even know what a vector graphic is? Or what its use is?
had an intern who felt the same as you.

we had a massive deadline on artwork for a wall in an office. Had to be really precise since displays were being mounted and stuff.

5 days before "Hey, do this in indesign because it's vector and can do large format well and build a grid and stylesheets."

Fucker spent 1.5 days building it in photoshop as a 45gb file on his Macbook air. Told him again to rebuild it - and fucking fast because we were doing test prints.

Still kept jerking his dick in photoshop.

Fired from the project and put on shit work for the rest of the summer. Stockphoto searches mostly.
good, if i was dumb enough to be someone's (((intern))) i would make sure to fuck up the biggest project i can so you cheap fucks can reap what you sow
lol glad that intern fucked you

maybe if he was paid he might've been motivated to crunch and actually learn

Unemployed a solid year!
Thought I could get hired for another graphic design job before unemployment ran out. Nope. Start uber to pay bills. Oh fuck taxes, gas, and repairs.

My will is gone, tell me anon, tell me freelance can save me, tell me I can make $400 a week, so tourist can stop asking me what it's like to drive an uber. I need your courage to wage capitalism against the the third world horde of low low prices.
desu you should be able to outcompete most people on upwork or 99designs both on speed and quality. the design submitted there is always trash with almost no exceptions.

i dont really get the hate for these sites. any competent designer would clean up on those sites easy. i used to spend like 3 hours on a "web design" (basically just a long scroll image with no interactivity) and get paid like $800 for it. Logo work i would spend at most like 2 hours and get around $200 each. I have a decent amount of clients and self initiated projects now so i dont have the time for it anymore.

If you cant outcompete the non designers on 99designs youre not at the level you need to be to freelance yet. Really hone down your fundamentals and learn from the masters of design. Also read books about architecture. Surprisingly really helpful.
>web design
Just the design file or with completed HTML & CSS?
where the fuck are you finding those clients anon

So I got bored and started to completely redo the ssbm cover for the gamecube and my energy is depleting fast so do any of you have any ideas or contributions? thanks! - bobert


>so I got bored and "started" a thing except I haven't yet done anything and I'm all out of ideas
this is a joke but anyway, do you have any concept to begin with? what is your goal, if any? just "make it again"? if you want to train by re-doing exactly the same thing, then I have a question: could you choose something beside lame 2000s photoshop for this purpose?
I have no idea what you want to do. fan project or not, no matter how shitty, at least have a clear goal in mind.
if you ask me for _any_ideas, I'd ditch bevel and other outdated Photoshop effects, and remove blur on main pic (because it looks like tilt shift).
the one i linked looks bad?
i had to put a file so i put the original
my purpose is to make a better looking version of the original so I can print it and put it in the case of ssbm (I recently bought it from a thrift store with a bad case and cover)
Your energy is depleting fast? You haven’t actually done anything yet. If I had a cool idea for a different melee cover I’d just do it myself, since you haven’t added any ideas of your own to this anyway.

im a gd undergrad, so far it seems I'm good at this, high praise from professors, a few pretty successful freelance gigs under my belt. but i realized i hate it, even if its for something I like i just feel like a wagie, and contemporary styles fill me with melancholy. i want to be an academic, i want to go to grad school and eventually become a pedagog. I have an elaborate theory I am working on regarding design and the optical unconscious. what should i do lads?

Your resume immediately gets thrown out, having no social media to normies means either you're a freak or that you have something to hide

Might as well move somewhere cheap and do online graphic design course for a year, you'll be better off.
