I have to ask why you didn't use illustrator? Do you hate the people who are going to have to work with this, when it's printed?

Do you just not know Illustrator? It's fine if you don't, not going to be a dick, but this kind of work is what Illustrator was designed for, and if they want to repurpose the art, your workload would be so much easier if it were vectors. Plus, you'd never have to worry about maintaining sharpness, or having the colors shift enlarging or reducing the image.
I mean, great work, but it's time to learn Illustrator. Instead of a massive file, you could have one that's about a meg in size. Then just place it in InDesign. set the type - and it prints perfectly, every time - and making adjustments and corrections and modifications would be a LOT easier and quick.
how much money did you earn?
Good job OP. Looks comfy

Hi, given how much talented artists /GD/ has(this may or may not be bullshit) i thought to ask little honest feedback.
I'm currently doing moped build and in particular fairings/look, so any ideas how i can improve this design further? I like to keep it simple enough, but different. Bike is 1998 derbi senda, so called "camel". Color scheme is already desided black/carbonfiber vinyl, green paint and i can add little gray and brighter green into mix.

does this look okay? what would you do with it?

so you just bought a wacom
probably randomized brush edges and pressure in settings to such a degree it would be hard to tell it's done with photoshop's default round brush. maybe roughened it even more with some textures and filters before autotracing the vector and cleaning up.
that's where you're wrong

Try and use gender neutral terms for your cover letter. Maybe not DEAR SIRS. Also check the pronouns

Now you know why, bigot.

they are trying to keep the Pajeets away obviously.

have you tried turning it off and on again?

How do i make it so each line is the same length? Dragging all non-corners to the middle of the triangle doesn't do it... Im trying to make like a triradiate shape

use the rotate tool

drag the rotation point to the bottom or top of the line

i think the key you wanna hold is alt, and click the rotation point till the window shows up

then set rotation to 120, and click copy

then you just press ctrl+d twice

Did this for a friend's piercing business. He wanted a gothic style feel from it. What do yall think? any possible changes or reworks?
Not a fan of the 'y' 'g' thing, but whatever.

It looks like you did this by hand? Why not just use a run of the mill blackletter font and save a lot of time? If this was a font, why not use a better one; there are a lot of strange bumps and imperfections on all the letterforms but not enough to look intentional.

Maybe distress it?

I'm a highschool graphic design student and I was wondering if anybody has any suggestions for finding success later in life with graphic design
3 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
4chan is 18+, kiddo.
Get a bachelor's in graphic design. I'm a shit designer but I've had no trouble finding work in the field since I graduated because the degree looks good on a resume. Build up a nice portfolio.

UX/UI is highly competitive and only a very niche market.

Making websites are more profitable.


Learn business. Never sell GD, sell the solution to a problem they have.
Your portfolio is what will get you work, only put stuff that you like on it otherwise people will contact you to do shitty things. If you have 0 showable projects just do stuff you like, offer it for free to whomever might be interested under the condition of no changes (work is published as you designed it) if they want changes charge them for it. One way or another you have a good piece to put in your portfolio. Repeat until you get the job you want. Also, post things online daily
Are UX designers overpaid?

And how exactly do you find these clients? Do you know them beforehand?
It just sounds like you don't work at that point.
yes you should keep your rapey thoughts to yourself
keep your disgusting virtue signalling to yourself

leftist dominate the industry, you're going to have to work with them

what creative skills are in demand right now? to me, every business (big and small) needs 3 things: a strong logo, a site to market what they do/make, and social media presence (inbound/content marketing). do 1 or all 3?

What's this style called from your unrelated pic? The flat muted colors are hot af.
not really

Webflow or Semplice if you don't want to code.
that and the coding also isn't t h a t hard to really learn to do. It just takes patience and time honestly.
I see a lot of jobs wanting motion graphics and bullshit social media work...
How the fuck do you even solve problems with motion graphics?

Motion graphics is not even an industry, it's like low grade VFX work for script kiddies.

Hey help me with this, what would you change to make it look better and more professional? Better for the viewer and so on, some details what are wrong, text, colors, plates
Seems ok with what you can see in tournaments.

The big no-no here is the bottom right, hiding the name, it's too big of an obstruction and it's also on some information, if you want to keep it try to place it on the top left or right as missing part of their heads arent that important, but imho you should scale it down.

Does anyone have a transparent png of someone facing away from a camera like in the pic

its still bad, details like a drop shadow on the text wont fix that

1. Dont begin your artwork on the computer straightaway.

2. Try to sketch a bunch of ideas and then develop from there.

3. Spend a bit of time looking at your favorite album artwork and try to articulate why you like it.

submit a couple designs in a day or two after you have done some research, some sketching, and some editing
I'd say try to overlap stuff,
composition and intention is the key i think.
do you want to have a "80's, pop" vibe to it ?

i'd go for somthing like that for exemple. with better poping colors :)
Looks like le Happy Merchant.
You are really obsessed arent you?
