Adobe Illustrator
Corel Draw

>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.

>Where can I find inspiration?

Designing a logo for a friend. Company will be named "Level 3". My intent is to make the Lvl (shorthand for "level") look like a 3 on its side.
Does that come across as the intent?
Is this enough or should I add the 3 (leaning toward the latter)
Also looking to jazz this up. Open to ideas.

I want to crop ±1000 pictures in multiple sizes for different purposes. (socials, website, so my luddite colleagues don't ask me to do it again and again)

You can achieve this in PS with recorded actions I suppose but that would still require a lot of framing.
I've found a Figma plugin "hypercrop" that is content aware and seems to do the job.

Is there anything else I could use, or how would you take on this challange?
Those online image sites always put a load of metadata in the files.
It is a figma plugin, does that also apply?

I'm absolutely not into file technicalities.

I'm a general brand designer. For this client I also made proposal brochures and company shirts. Just didn't include them because I made them with Indesign and PS.
If the startup gets approved I will also be designing their website (separate pay).

I can't remember the last time that I just designed a logo.
I really recommend learning Indesign and if possible, HTML/CSS/JS. These will open a lot of job opportunities.

Why is AI "art" so suspiciously hyped up by talentless hacks and coomers? It's not even real art, it's just generated from thousands of pre-obtained datas from the artworks of human artists WITHOUT their permission. And yet whenever you see it online, the tasteless niggers would swarm in and praise it like the Second Coming of Christ. (I hate the Antichrist)

Your only cope left is user error. The person not knowing 'how to make it better than what your best guy can do in a year' in 45 seconds.

Instructions are the key. If you think it's missing something just add it to the prompt.
That is why you find yourself unable to articulate exactly what it is that it is missing, you'd be obligated by intellectual honesty to face the facts.
But to actually answer the question- the best response is that it breaks the concept and practices of intellectual property regulation and so on.
Fair use can be stretched so far to where it really is unfair. Most artists should get with it and wake up but if you're greg rutowsky or whatever his name what that carried ai art on his back for like 8 months- maybe he should get SOMETHING. They did use him in kinda a direct way but there is not really a law or mechanism for that right now.

Then you should know that at the current year of 2023 graphic design is pretty much dead. I was a professional gd for almost 10 years working in both studios and on my own and I can't really find a job anymore. It's not even because of AI to be honest, its because of how the industry works and how bad the corporate environment has become.

There's still web design, 3D and VFX/motion design(primarily 3D too) and if you want something similar or easy to transition then chose one of those but I'm not sure for how long they will be relevant themselves because of the AI which is basically a final nail in the coffin of gd. Of course there are and will be exceptions and maybe you will get lucky to find some obscure local business that needs you, but if you are young and looking for a career in the future you should stop consider becoming a graphic designer. This profession is dead.

To adress the fearmongering and depression in this thread: none of this bullshit matters. If you are a graphic designer or programmer that gets replaced by ai, it ultimately doesn't matter. Just look at how many jobs have been replaced back in the day. People will be fine, if you have the power to design or program, you can always hop into the trades. The jobs are as safe as you delude yourself to their inherent instability. Once you see it, you cannot unsee it. Now close this tab, enjoy a clean canvas or write a script or something. Give the crybabies less of your attention.
Yeah can't wait to start learning how to lay brick at 45.

That's a terrible cover.
Why would you read this crap instead of using your goddamn brain?
It's not like we're talking about art here.
It's only graphic design, the thing a monkey could do well.
These covers are pure shit.
It's all so predictable.
You already know it all,
just think for a second and there it is.
The cover is beautiful. Mechanistic. You don't know shit about design. Go make some vector art for coffee shops, retard
God you're fucking insufferable. Design a way to get the taste of my dick out of your mouth, obnoxious faggot
most people that try to knock off Massimo dont really use grids well

College is a scam. If anything, save the money and grind learning the tools and finding someone that needs their products. Whatever you'll learn in college will be too general and you'll get the same effect by reading books, give up the notion you'll become the next Robert Rodriguez, because you won't. Now, a good premiere or after effects operator, that's worth at least enough money to pay for rent and car payments. Maybe you'll die owning your house, but I doubt it.

Is MDE/Sam Hyde's current art style cool or embarrassing? Sincere and naive or ironic?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
You know how they say beauty is a reflection of one’s soul? Well have you seen what his group of friends look like?
They’re all ugly looking people, so it shouldn’t be so surprising that the art they produce is of the same nature.

I don’t dislike them at all as people it’s just an honest observation.
I mean, it’s not bad, it’s kind of unsettling to look at but not to the point that I just don’t want to look at it. Does it job and reflects Sam’s thing, I guess.
