>Can somebody photoshop X? Can somebody make me a logo?
All requests for photoshopping belong on /wsr/ - Worksafe Requests or /r/ - Adult Requests. /gd/ doesn't take requests or do free or even paid work sometimes. However, if you're new at something, asking "HOW can I X?" rather than "CAN YOU make X?" will give you better results.

>Can I post some of my work for critique?
There is usally a critique/What-Are-You-Working-On thread, and that is where work for critique go.

>Can somebody find [font]?
http://www.mediafire.com/download/027xjs3ujvyqxmd/Fonts.zip
also check out your local torrent site or the font-share thread.
Remember to share and not just take. Also remember that using liscensed fonts in commercial works is a bad idea.

This was most likely a draw/paint-over of an actual photo.

So I drew this up in Gimp, how do I make it look less like pixel art? Should I just put a bit of a blur on top of it?

If you have the linework in a seperate layer you could copy it into different layers, shift it my like 1 pixel going each direction and drop the opacity of those new layers and you might get something similar to anti-aliasing. DESU though I would just use a different program. If you just want to do digital raster illustrations, Sketchbook is good and its free

Buy some magazines you like the look of, take notes on layout

I only collect/read a few magazines. GQ, Esquire, Mixmag and a few others. If you can find a scan of Esquire's yearly edition of 'The Big Black Book' I think that's a pretty good place to start. I like it so much after I buy it and read it I use it as a mousemat

Pic related. It's exemplary in my opinion because it is not trying to be something it isn't. A magazine is a medium to communicate information, it does it's job well and gets everything else out of the way so you can focus on content, which is well sized, placed and the source material and copy is high quality. Forgive the shitty photo, I can't get anything off my DSLR because I lost my SD Card reader and quarantine means I can't get a new one right now.

My niece thinks because I'm an engineer I know things about graphics design, she's wrong.

If you guys were to use a laptop for graphic design what would be your choice?
>>
IPS panel, 1080p at least, 15inch screen, i5 or better CPU, 512gb SSD, 16GB RAM at least
In reality, you can do /gd/ on a fucking toaster. It's similar to how you can make the most popular song of the year on an iPad, but the bar is even lower. Those are just the requirements I'd have and I've been doing gd for 12 years

The main thing is the screen. Good resolution, good colour reproduction.

I agree that the new logo is over minimalized. Great simplifications were the Eagles and Broncos. Some even added more detail, like the Falcons and Bill's.
Overall, logos of the 1990-2020 NFL teams had a similar feel and style to them. Maybe that means this logo feels awkward because it stands out. Partially feels like the start of a change, as if a design team got a contract with the nfl to rebrand the relocations (2 LA teams and now the Raiders in LV).
All speculation of course, but if it is the case I'd just hope they have all the logos represent the same feel.
