>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.

Why hasn't Gimp found any success in industry? Both Blender and Darktable seem to have found niches in industry, but Gimp hasn't. Is it because Affinity Photo is a good enough Photoshop alternative that people don't need to look at Gimp? Is it because the devs make bizarre decisions?

The text tool is fucking shit, I hate it so much

Are agencies and designers still charging millions for branding and trademarks during this epidemic and economic recession? I haven’t seen any news since the covid hit
>>
Short answer: yes. The economy/big corporations live on, still need ads and creative assets. Most medium-large/notable agencies are doing just fine. Individual designers are all over the place, depending on their network and skill level.

Okay anons, I have a school assignment due in 12 hours and I need help.

You have to create a dashboard on Google Analytics based on any business that you want to choose. You also have to write a short summary about the business, like what does the business provide consumers, if the business have a website, where the business is located, etc. And lastly once you create the customized dashboard with key performance and indicators tailored to the business and send over the screenshot, please write a paragraph or two about why you chose the key performance indictors and analytics for this business’s dashboard and why these metrics are important to the business.

I imagine that for anyone experience with Google Analytics this will take an hour at the absolute most, and anyone else can probably do it in less than 2 hours if they use Youtube. I would do it but do not have time to and desperately need it done for me.

Anyone interested please drop a Skype, Discord, or any way that I can contact you. And again, it is due in about 12 hours.

Does anyone have any advice for creating y2k inspired or glitch/cyber designs? I have an idea for a sci fi packaging concept I’d like to try mocking up but I’m very unfamiliar with creating designs that align with these styles.

This is a cut from an official Brazilian document for birth certification/registration, I need this font in order to reproduce it partially again.

In some parts the text, in the document is just too clear, so I've been requested to resubmit it, but scanning it again would be complicated...

So I decided to just manually write it again. The font it uses seems to be non-serif, monospace, squared, the A is a bit different. I don't need the exact font, just one similar enough. Does anyone have any idea what I could use?

Yes, back in the 70's.

If you work for someone, they pay for it. I've never paid for my tools for jobs, never will - and it's never been an issue.
>>
>>396439
They're fine, for small time freelancers, hobbyists, and students. I'd recommend AP to someone who plays around with graphics casually.

Adobe apps have things most casual users will never need - and that Affinity can never provide. Adobe apps are trusted and reliable and support industry standards that most people who would be fine with Affinity will never run into or need or even hear about.

If you're just trying to learn the basics, Affinity stuff is fine. They're not bad apps. I'd have issues using them at work - and since my job pays for CC, I don't need to. They're not tested or trusted in the pro space. Maybe they'll get there.

Designer lacks of some features that are even present on some open source alternatives, like path interpolation, extrusion, path deformation, etc. But it's pretty fast.
>>
>>396511
by work for someone else i mean freelance as clients will expect illustrator/photoshop files.
if you just generate artwork for yourself then you only have to buy what works for you.

What are your guys' actual jobs? Do people make decent money?

My job has ended up being more data crunching than graphic design but I still make shit ($38000).
