Hello /gd/ I have a stupid question I though you may be able to answer...

I need to print a serious amount of copies. Several books worth of paper. But I'm currently homebound and I can't go to a copy shop. Not to mention I would sure get some weird faces when asking to print that much, so I would like to avoid the embarrassment.

This is why I want to know if there's a printing service (in Europe) that would send me the copies directly to my home via mail or messenger. Something like this exists?
Here's a link comparing a few printing services, I don't know if they are european but they can surely send your stuff overseas.

This was made back in 2016 but it can point you in the right direction.

Yes, there is. I've used Blurb in EU. The quality was good, but it was damn expensive. Maybe try contacting someone in your country or region first to ask for their prices.
China or Japan (who will probably outsource to China). The last time I priced a 1000-copy run of magazines, it was cheaper to fly to Tokyo, pick them up at the printers', and carry them back as luggage than it was to have them printed locally. And of course, even quick shipping is cheaper than that.

Watch this, you spoiled millenial cunts, take it to your hearts, and learn from it.
Work hard and you'll make it.

okay, child
oh wow a generic animated video telling me that if you practice hard enough you become good at it. What a riveting piece of art. Keep shilling your student work here.. It's not like this board could get any worse.

Hello people of /gd/

I run a graphic design magazine that provides a platform for the unseen, unused and rejected work of designers. It's student-run, entirely self funded until now and completely independent.

We're soon releasing our fourth issue and it's a lot bigger than the previous ones. We've got a Kickstarter going at the moment to help us fund it.

Would appreciate any support. Check it out here if it sounds interesting, lots more info on the page

This...actually looks pretty interesting.

Introducing irony, the magazine.
it's just a poster you dunce
what the fuck are you talking about you fucking retard. jesus christ

M/M Paris won't stop posting about this stool. I don't get it. I mean it's kinda cool but it's also pretty average. What's up with the huge presentation? Does this really warrant it's own big showspace with puppets and shit? It kinda looks like something you could find at any "kooky" furniture store

If you want to know a font just post it in this thread.
Pic related, the title, is this a custom font? if so is there anything similar?
idk but kudos on creating a font id thread, we haven't had one in a while (not like 4channel costumers will ever use it) and for your taste on kino
My search led me to find out that this is some variation of Agincourt. I'm not sure if it's custom or there's a version without the decorative elements on the uppercase characters.

Does anyone have any insight on how prevalent this is? Every single design focused outlet I read has very prominent political leanings. All of the famous designers I follow find any opportunity to show how left wing they are. Has this lead to any interesting situations for any of you in the industry?

fucking this
Mainstream politics in general are liberal, in the philosophical sense rather than the American team sports sense. Rule of "new money", by new money, for new money, with government powers broadly limited by an array of essentially magical-thinking incantations and rituals in order to ensure that those limitations only protect those rich enough to employ an especially-competent law-speaker. It's kept in power by alternating control between a right-liberal-faction which tells their wageslaves that the left-liberal-faction's dirt-poor and minorities are coming to steal what security they've found, and a left-liberal-faction which tells their wageslaves that the right-liberal-faction's old whites are trying to keep them down. (And a tacit agreement, of course, to never imply that it's the other set of new-money which are in fact pulling the strings.)

Leftism shares more with the original Anonymous philosophy - we're all essentially alike and our "high score" shouldn't be a multiplier for our impact on society. This carries, to some degree, a recognition that the society we're in is set up along liberal lines where the reality is very much the opposite, and attempts to counteract that influence; this is something the 4chan demographic would be all for if they were as logical as they think, because it views NEETs and autodidacts as people who were failed by society rather than as failures. A leftist approach will "give" more to a kid from the projects than a kid from the trailer park, sure, because the kid from the trailer park can at least blend in among the lower crust of new money with a haircut and a suit, but is concerned with raising both of them to an even footing while lowering their boss's boss's boss.

2015-era Plebbit refugees like OP or >>364146
are kind of thick and mistook "we're all essentially alike" as "only people who are essentially alike are -us-; changing things which benefit that 'us' is politics but leaving it alone is just common sense".
As for dealing with left-libs, it's easy af. They like stealing the iconography of the left to pretend they're helping without actually risking their advantage and blending into the anonymous mass, and they get real quiet after a few tries at setting up a unionization or guild effort/inviting them to the range to put a few rounds through a Mosin to be ready as a squad when the revolution comes/"oh, I noticed your (x) so I thought you'd be conversant in Lenin and Gramsci!". After that, just call them cosplayers and watch them stew.
Things leftists support that liberals do not:
-absolute gun rights, and the violent overthrow of liberal-democratic governments
-Institution of a democratic dictatorship of the proletariat or anarchist local communes
-Abolition of property in land and the redistribution of housing and farmland
-Seizure of all workplaces, workplaces to be administered democratically by workers for their interests, no compensation for shareholders.
Nothing you can really do. You gotta learn to hide your power level, or at least try to steer away from any political discussion as much as possible. Hard to do when you live in LA and your fellow graphic designers say dumb shit all the time.

>someone recently argued that men shouldn't be allowed to vote on abortion, someone else said that all guns should be confiscated, etc.

I'd be in the fucking streets if I was honest about my political leanings.

So, I'm finishing up the brand guidelines for a client. The logo uses only black for color, and I was given conflicting suggestions of using Rich Black (C60 M40 Y40 K100) on the guidelines by one person as well as using Standard Black (C0 M0 Y0 K100) on it by another. I get the gist of when each color is better used, but for the sake of writing a guide, which one should I use? Alternatively, as is shown in the image, should I just put both and pick one as the "main" color palette? If so, which one? Should I just state the circumstances in which each should be used?

Sorry about the bunch of questions. This is the first time I've run into this issue and am terribly insecure.
├Žsthetic not aesthetic?

You gotta make your own decision here anon. Personally I try to always avoid rich black because I can't trust printers to have good registration, but if you have control over the entire pipeline and prefer the deeper black, then go for it. Either way, you're going to have to make a choice, son.
I have a followup (also, not sure if I should post this in a thread of its own). Does anyone here know the technical aspect as to "why" digital printing results in darker blacks? The reading I've done only led me to DMAX (maximum density), but I'm not entirely sure as to how this correlates to offset printing or DPI for that matter?

So im trying to make something for my friends since they're making a "Racing Shopping-cart" as a joke and i need to make a racing number design kinda like the one in the pic but it will go on the front of the shopping cart. Im kinda stumped how i want to go with this and i was wondering if you guys wanna throw out some ideas? The cart is called the "Sex Wagon" and its number is 69. what does this bring to your minds lol

What is the consensus on pirating fonts for personal use/projects and then buying them once you're dead set on it?

No-go, dangerous, sketchy, or people do it all the time?

I just need to test several fonts on different projects, decide where to go, and then after the decision I'd gladly buy it.

Not sure how people usually go about this though.
In the office? Get the boss to pony up the cash.
Freelance? Do whatever the fuck you want.
Hey thanks. So if you're freelancing you suppose the guy you're selling your projects to have the rights to the fonts that you're using and it's up to him to be careful about it?
Just a reminder that copyrights for fonts/ typefaces are based on the actual software not on how it looks/aesthetics

You can copy / draw out a font vector it and create your own bespoke version

All completely legal but time consuming
just use free alternative. the helvetica one is called palanquin or something similar. nobody will know the difference.

Any good advice for avoiding problems with font copyright? If you do a font when designing a logo and turn it into vector, it stops being a font, right?

What about designing newsletters and brochures?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
It certainly does, once font becomes a vector bye bye copyright
Copywrites for fonts only affect the actual program/software of the font not the aesthetics of it.

It makes perfect sense seeing as most fonts are shit copied from the old printing press days anyway

I would recommend at least donating to the various people who actually created the fonts also just buying them will save you a ton of time.
>buying them will save you a ton of time

You dont have to create them yourself just plug n play

It's just easier
you can just draw over existing fonts

Whoever came up with the crash helmet 'swoosh' needs to be shot.
