how do i go about decoding a bmp image?

I would image its probably text that was warped with the liquify tool and put under a series of clipping masks and different layer styles but everytime i try to make something like this turns out looking like dog shit

Draw the "type" or whatever amorphous blob you call that in the middle.

Apply a bevel and extrude filter to this type, turn up the levels very very high, set to chisel hard.

stroke the type (i didnt do this because there was a bunch of shitty loose pixels and dirt around my awful type blob thing, looks worse than it needed to)

throw on some lens flares

find a low poly screen shot like from a sega saturn game and increase its size so its even more pixelated and shitty

find type online, again blow it up so it looks pixelated and shitty

make the image larger than it is so it looks more pixelated and shitty

apply a gradient map to the image

This wave effect in Photoshop was defnitely used on the text. And then liquify afterwards but I cba to do that. Font I used was Calibri Bold. Didn't do anything else to it, just wave.
I'm also a fan of drain gang, OP.

Yahoo just got a redesign… and it's geo sans from Pentagram. who would have thought?
23 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
most of the rationale behind this kind of design also comes from UI designers who are constantly pushing for marks that scale smaller and smaller and are still readable at the size of an ant's asshole

you haven't lived until you're sitting getting reamed out because your company's legacy "aw yeah 3d and gradients and it's 100 colors" logo isn't suitable to sit as an icon in a website's header nav for a promo takeover

while i agree there's definitely ways to create strong marks, without everyone looking like they put on their fanciest gotham varient there's also a value to a clear one color mark with simple use cases.
The logo is set in a modified Centra No.2 Extrabold. The letterforms have been modified to be more geometric and compact. The angle of the exclamation mark matches the angle of the y
Fuck Pentagram
How much did they pay? Will we know or do we have to wait until yahoo releases their financial statements?

Why is their logo a basketball and how do I go about getting started on the platform (as in how to get people to follow my newly posted stuff)?
Don't bother. It's not very useful, unless you signed up for it years ago to accumulate followers. Quality-wise, it's mediocre at best.
>Why is their logo a basketball
well their name is dribbble its a reference from basketball when a player dribbles another, plus the site has lots of bsk references like playoffs, shots, overtime, etc.
You'll get in with an invite, if you have good stuff in your portfolio it shouldn't be that hard, you'll make a regular account first and look for invitation posts on the site or on other social media sites.
do you get judged based on likes and views when an employer/customer asks for your dribble?

Share advice and cool tricks about Gimp
40 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
Hi, I'm new (again) to GIMP after reinstalling it after a few years to start using it for stuff again. Rather than editing memes or soc thread BS, I'm trying to learn more about it but I never studied graphic design and desu my time is kind of limited.

So far youtube tutorials haven't been wholly helpful and seem directed at people who already know these kinds of programs. Is there anything anyone would recommend.

P.S. How does the burn/dodge tool work? I will select modes to lighten only/darken only/burn etc. but can't tell what the differences are between what the effects are doing.

P.P.S. I keep reading that GIMP can be used to Xray clothing/paper/reflections/etc. I've seen very limited tutorials on manipulating sliders and shadows to do this, but am still having lots of trouble understanding how it works and what method there is to it. Any tips?
is gimp worth getting?
i tried downloading it, but the directory has like 20 .exes what the fuck.
are there any open source programs that are as good and more lightweight?
I mean I downloaded it and in installed the text without any problem or having to choose from a variety of programs, but I'm windows 64 bit. I see it used a lot on 4chan, that's why I got it. Everyone either seems to use Gimp or photoshops. And it's actually not hard at all to torrent photoshop and a crack for it last time I checked.
ive used gimp and like it. it installed fine, but if you look in the folder after install, it seems like theres tons of bloat. at least 5 .exes. i know its probably needed, but im paranoid of malware/viruses lately and i dont like seeing that many .exes in an image program
Given how many anons use it, I highly doubt it has malware. Even shadman has used gimp

I really enjoy making people into mushroom hybrids.
Always had an obsession with mushrooms in general and I recently got photoshop so that I may finally make everyone into the dominant fungal race I've always dreamed of.

Does anyone have any tips to improve my work? I realize that a lot of my lines are sloppy. I am working on a laptop and only tracpad.

Working on creating automotive sticker designs.
Does anyone know how to create a neochrome effect applied to text? Is it the vinyl itself? I'm confused whether or not I do this in Illustrator or it comes down to printing.
>pic related
That's the substrate it's printed on. You really needed this explained to you, you think there's a "print this actual metallic" button?
Right, thanks. And no, of course not, I don't have the means to print on this type of vinyl, and I never have, so it was a genuine question.
Very helpful, fucking faggot

I have the equipment to make this
This example it's just black ink over holographic vinyl
If you want a color vinyl design with partial parts holographic you need a eco-solvent/latex printer that can print white

Why is montserrat so great? In this thread we talk about how great montserrat is.
It is a font that are off set to visually give the illusion that it is straight but it is as gay as lgbt.
I do like this font a lot. It easily lends itself for posters and flyers, but is versatile enough to use for logos and creativity

>Why is montserrat so great?
because it's a ripoff of Gotham.
also I don't think it's great at all. hate the Rs because of their shitty Art Deco proportions. I'm fucking tired of all the shit like Brandon Grotesque that tries to pretend that art deco was all minimalism and geo sans.

A while ago, Adobe discovered I pirated Photoshop and Illustrator, and now not only I don't have a program to work with, but this annoying message pops up every like, 30 minutes telling me to buy the original versions.
What can I do /gd/? I use a Mac and I eliminated all the adobe-related programs and files I could find, why is the message still popping? Also, could I re-pirate them or do I need to find a new program?

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?

>Watch a documentary related to design
>Write an essay correlating it to the classes we've had so far

I'm kinda lost. This is for history of design. We've had classes about nouveau, streamline, styling, bauhaus, italian bell design and about how design became what we know today. Any ideas of what I could watch to write this essay? I know there's a netflix series called Abstract, is it good? I was also thinking about watching Objectified but I dont know if that will have anything to do with what I've had in class so far.

If it's any help: I really loved Mucha posters when we studied nouveau. Is there any doc about something like this?
Why Man Creates
documentary"" is really fucking broad. is it supposed to be broad? in which case fuck it find something that interests you that isn't a font.
Kind of agree with >>375331
I think you could relate anything to design if you really wanted to. In my design class we watched the experimental film "Ballet Mechanique" (1924) before discussing early experimental typography (Dada, Russian Futurism, etc)

If you're fond of Mucha, you could try really delving into art nouveau/jugendstil and watching something that relates to the movement overall. You could even find a more modern parallel to that movement and write your paper about how it mirrors art nouveau. For example, Louis Tiffany was a big figure in American art nouveau, I'm sure there's a docu out there on the history of Tiffany & Co.
There's various interviews on YouTube with Paul rand. If you want to study design you got to study the masters.
