>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]?
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.

Best you can do is explain your situation to your professors in person and show them your thumbnails. Perhaps recreate everything fullsized on paper from what you can recall and submit that as well. It might not look as polished as what you had, but it'll show them that you still tried despite the loss.

>fucked up reputation with teachers

lol fuck outta here faggot

I made the logo for an upcoming event in my hometown, and they chose number one. The event itself is aimed towards the mainstream youth (13-19) and will feature artists and bands on stage with booths around selling food and clothing etc.

I'd like to know which version you prefer and why, because I was requested to be in charge of their media, so there is still room for the logo to be changed. Thanks<3

Make the logo bigger, as big as you can
I wrote some prompts on this thread >>356037
I would suggest you look onto an online college program from a top-tier design college, they list all the things you should learn and then just search them on one of those online video course learning sites lynda/skillshare or torrent sites if you're poor cgpeers/thepiratebay. also search for books at either amazon/libgen, and go watch all the videos on this channel:

without actually providing any competent or convincing analysis or examples of their own ability.
I don't know why I expected anything different.
That Australian street car one is shit tho.
> Stop questioning me, shitlord!
I don't even think it was done by a professional designer
I'm sick of telling you things only for you to reject my lesson.
It's serviceable. It might not be the most exciting thing to look at but there's nothing amateurish about it.

Is it better for graphic designers to meet their clients to have a better understanding on what they want?
definitely. I'm pretty sure every big designer/studio will have lots of meetings with the clients, not only that but you'll have to do lots of research on the company history/products, their target audience vs where are they making the most money, what their competition is doing etc. if you put that on a budget brief and if you can you design well and talk/network you can end up charging thousands for a week or less of work easily. I've even read some designers ask the clients crazy stuff like "if your company was a car what model will it be?", you can get lots of interesting feedback if you try out asking creative questions.
Not of your in India working off fiver
>to have a better understanding on what they want
u answered ur own question lad

Post the best/most aesthetically pleasing flags. Old thread reached the image limit.

My contribution would be the Austrian flag, very striking and has an amazing legend.
>According to legend, the flag was invented by Duke Leopold V of Austria as a consequence of his fighting during the Siege of Acre. After a fierce battle, his white surcoat was completely drenched in blood. When he removed his belt, the cloth beneath remained unstained, revealing the combination of red-white-red. So taken was he by this singular sight that he adopted the colors and scheme as his banner

Props to anyone who can identify this flag. I know what it is but anyone who recognizes it is cool in my book.
More triggered by the fact a group of people who did nothing to contribute to the nation's foundation historically are getting representation. It'd be like making the US flag a tipi.

I do like the "Wolf" type. Try not to make your portfolio too weird. If i saw this on my desk i would throw it in the trash. Keep it simple, dont go overboard with shit you dont need.

That page looks alright. For me, the cover does not have enough contrast. I can not stand lacking contrast, and may have gone overboard with my contrast suggestions in the pic I have here - A very quick touch up in PS of some areas I think should be addressed with contrast issues. As for a more in depth breakdown - the random blue unique to the "25" is a no. Most things I did were for the sake of contrast, so not much explanation need be. You actually missed erasing a piece of the dog photo, which I circled down by the left of the "y" in "happy". I would have done a whole lot more if I was working with your vector or PS layered file as "fixing" my co-worker's ads/covers was a mainstay for me in my previous employment. The "pets are our future" I added to the maroon pointer thingy to does look like shit, I know, but that was just a suggestion, and should probably be more of a 1/2 capsule shape - I didn't bother too much with trying to move around things in this raster image of yours, and the "f" of "wolf" wouldn't have let me play much with shape options to backdrop that text quickly. Anyway, I think you can maybe take some ideas from this and find a middle-ground. Good luck.

I need to print off my own front cover/back cover with spine to fit into a CD jewel case. For some reason I can't find a template for this or the right dimensions anywhere online. It's as if it's hidden knowledge or something. Please can anyone point me in the right direction here?
