With the resurgence of 90s/Y2K style design, one fantastic place to look at is album art from obscure 90s emo bands. Just sharing some I have saved. Feel free to add more.

Request and share non-free typefaces and identification of typeface samples.

Previous thread >>397954

> Font identification

Before you request, do your due diligence by running your font sample through a font identifier;

whatfontis <dot> com
fontsquirrel <dot> com/matcherator (be sure to enable the myfonts setting)
myfonts <dot> com/whatthefont

If you're not getting a clear read then put your sample in PS, separate the letters and colour it to be pure black on a white background.

Use a font identifier like I said in OP. The letters are too close together to get good results, move them apart in Photoshop.

Check OP and you'll find at least one of your fonts.

Try the Control and F keys on your keyboard anon.

Jesus Christ some of you are lazy. The OP gives very clear instructions on how to find a number or large, public and free resources to get free fonts. At least search those and look in this thread and the previous one before wasting my time in here.

If I pirate a proprietary font and use it in some PDFs and printed books, how likely is it that I will be caught and fined? Is there even a way for the company to know if I paid for a license or not? For reference, the font in question is a very popular, very common, very established font from a very big company, so its not like I'm ripping off some lone starving typographer or anything.

How will they even find out though?
Let's say i use Futura for commercial work without ever paying for it, they're not gonna go after me, right?
And if i work in a studio they should have the licenses anyway, not my problem.
>>
>>416337
The odds of a freelance designer being audited for font licenses is slim to none - they target companies for that.

The other anon was right - it depends on the foundry, and their licenses. House Industries is very litigious, and won a big case against Universal, and have been known to go after smaller designers and studios for their fonts being used. But they are an outlier. The big font foundries like Adobe generally only go after commercial presses and bigger agencies and corporations, and now with CC font licenses and Google fonts, it's even less of an issue.

And, if you're an actual designer who isn't a pajeet scraping jobs off the bottom of the barrel on Fiver, you already own fonts, and if the client wants something specific, will pay for them. Or you work for someone who owns a font library.

or just get yourself a font from a japanese foundry lol
japan doesnt take typefaces seriously at all (i mean, typefaces are never copyright, not even in US), and if you think theyll try to somehow escape their own country not wanting to protect them and manage overseas legal battles on shaky laws and hard-to-prove concepts, you're mistaken
>>
font licenses only exist for people in pozzed shithole countries, and for legal departments
e.g. https://www.sqlite.org/copyright.html
>Your legal department tells you that you must purchase a license.

Hey /gd/, how do you apply a raster like this so that it blends between two colors like in the background and has a different density and color and opacity?

I know how to make a raster in general and how to apply it with a layer mask, but I don't get how to overlay it over an already colored background in such a way that it turns into this.

>>
>>416182
if by all kinds of different opacities you mean he simply painting into the layer mask using an airbrush then yes.

in fact hes probably making a layer for the halftone on that specific shape (the cliffs) then putting in a solid black layer mask and brushing it back in using a white airbrush on that mask.
>>
>>416210
The thing is that it disappears completely on lighter surfaces, seems like it's nowhere to be found on anything above a certain lightness value, do you think it might be a blending mode set to a certain threshold, or did he do that manually too?
>>
And yeah, why I'm asking this is because I've seen this in comic book coloring sometimes and they definitely have a well developed system because they're doing it for a billion panels in the exact same way.
>>
>>416213
You mean like
Blend if
>>
>>416213
it would take like 2 seconds to do manually, literally a couple swipes with an airbrush.

Recently I became aware this is the single most important selling point.
It really doesn't matter what your coin or token actually does, first and foremost the logo should be cool, secondly marketing.
Marketing is second because if you're starting point is shit; bad logo, your marketing won't stand any chance.

For example, /biz/raelis bought this pink K because Anons said it was superb tech.
However, it seems to be only good at one single thing: losing them money.

I’m sorry if this is the wrong board for this or if this is a dumb question.I’d just like some help with finding out maybe what programs or effects were used in pic related. I am working on a project and would like some help breaking down this technique possibly so I can implement some variations on my work. Any help is greatly appreciated again sorry if this is the wrong board for this.

More images of style I’m trying to dissect
>>
>>416304
I would say photoshop, but maybe MS paint might work better for this style. Just import all the photos and use paint bucket on stuff, it will make the photos become all glitchy. Just cut and paste stuff like a collage and use paint bucket a lot, I think it will work. If you have photshop you can mess wiVth the saturation and light levels to get weird effects

Consider the following: Stop hiding behind being the label of being ironic when your skills aren't anywhere near what you're trying to lampoon. Instead ask yourself what your strengths are and focus on that or learn from those who have mastered the craft.

Anything between 2003 and 2012 is welcome here.
THIS IS NOT A Y2K THREAD
DO NOT POST Y2K HERE
While yes, those two aesthetics may overlap, y2k already has its own thread, so post blatant y2k stuff (i.e. anything from between 1996 to 2002) there instead.
