So I've been thinking about RB a lot recently so I made some very basic/mainstream designs that I uploaded.
What would you guys suggest to make? From what I'm seeing fanart of popular shit seems to be doing it's best and some cute animals as well.

Also if you have a profile could you share your experiences with the website?
I don't think there's that much interest about rb in this board, check out this old /ic/ thread

on libgen.io search for Logo Design Love, also check out theskoolrocks on youtube (an old video named branding)
I usually go to the Wikimedia commons logos section for inspiration.

Seconding this anon's suggestion.
It'll teach you a lot about integrating and communicating ideas, as opposed to just making something "look nice". It's been invaluable to me after getting a job in videography and graphics.

It's a double-edged sword, as it'll also make you realize that there's almost no good designs posted on this board.

It's available on Amazon.
this book is useless and only spits out common sense
if youre literally entirely clueless i guess go for it but everything in here can be found by searching how to make a logo on google

Thoughts on the new Steam redesign? I think it's pretty ugly and I bet it will be a lot slower and less efficient than what we have now...

Heyo, /gd/. Hopefully you feel like helping a fucking idiot from /wsg/ along, here.

This is a mockup for a new clipper card for SF's underground. Don't mind my shit design, it's not important - but would you categorize this as Brand/Corporate Identity? Maybe just Branding? Something different all together?

I'm not sure how to categorize it. Thanks for any help in advance.
thats just a business card

also use more leading on the left title that shits painful

Asymmetry has been prevalent since the dawn of time. It's not a trend, and it's not going away. Get used to it.

Does anyone have experience with UI / UX design?
I'm currently in school to get my Bachelor's in GD. I'm growing more and more interested in UI / UX design and I'm wondering what classes or resources I can look into that might benefit my career in the future. Any advice would be appreciated.
Focus on the approach and methods to designing interfaces and/or workflows. Look for books, guides, internships and minors in your curriculum that cover how to prototype, gather and implement feedback, and how handle projects from start to end. I studied industrial design, and am currently responsible for UI & UX (~70 employees). 75% of that product development process and its methods I learned can be directly applied there: user study > requirements > sketching > concepts > etc.

You can start with basic apps yourself, though I don't think you learn a lot from that. It's hard to get into, as the more complex and dedicated software workflows basically just require a company behind you with the resources to have you talk to users and stakeholders.

One thing to look out for and really pay attention to at your school are those 'mock' project assignments where you get a brief and can talk to a target group (fake or not). Best things in my 4 years of study.

am i quirky or what?

Suggest improvements to this please.

The logo is created out of the blank space if the Z and A are overlapped.

Thank you very much for this.
I agree that it should be more friendly. I will be trying to find a balance between the op and your concepts.

What are your thoughts on our logo? Is it redundant if we have a stronger word mark?
I feel like you should focus on either a strong word mark or an image logo. If you try to put too much into it, things can get busy and hard to recognize at a glance.
I don't dislike the original logo, but the text that goes along with it seems a bit busy and takes away from the image.

I've combined the consistent letter thicknesses and geometry of the writing with your style. I'd need to improve on the lower font, but I can do that another time.

Thoughts? I feel like it's an improvement.

I agree. Our original A wasn't unique enough for it to be used on its own, so we made a logo too.
Looks good. Try to incorporate the angles from the A design into the end points of the Z and S and see if that works.
As I found from making the original, I cannot get the angles from either the A or the Z to work with the ends of the S. But I do need to update the Z slightly.

I've sent a copy to the other company owner, and I'll keep you updated.

What do you think about the current Animal Planet logo. It's their 3rd try in a few years.
they should have keep the color green as it was easy to spot their brand just by the green color, this one seems too vector-ish and corporate, plus the elephant looks weird almost like a mammoth, the previous ones weren't that good either.
pretty good IMO but I agree they should've kept the green.
better than their previous one, at least.

I agree.
huh, looks even more perfect than I imagined.
I can only wonder why they switched to blue. hard to go wrong with "green = nature".

Riot games changed it's logo, what do you guys think ?
looks like a phone game company that steals your data with "free" games using names like Battleroyale Grounds
Fits them perfectly.

What is the best place for getting legit software cracks these days?

Does Anon have a suggestion for a cracked version of Avenza Map Publisher that will work with CS4? I don't care if it's older, I just need to be able to do my homework because I work during my school's open lab hours
Or can anyone suggest how I can copy it off the school computer and have it work properly at home?

Why do japanese movie posters look more good than the western ones?

Japanese simply fits modern and postmodern styles better. It makes sense, seeing as modernism was rooted in old timey weebs trying to emulate Japanese art

A lot of them look a lot like toothpaste logos. If I didn't know better, I'd have thought Amy's, Hunter's, Inslee's, and maybe Yang and Wayne as new contenders for the toothpaste market
Hickenlooper > Trump > Yang > Bernie

Everything else is trash
What's the significance of Hickenlooper's three peaks? It makes the logo feel like it's for a campaign for a position in a specific state
No idea. I just think it looks great
