Just a simple design I whipped up with Illustrator in about a half-hour or so. I didn't have any specific idea in mind when I started so I guess my best improvised explanation is that it's some alternate universe Internet Explorer logo. Does it feel too 'empty' to y'all? Please let me know.

Oh and I forgot to attach it originally but there's also this version which just duplicates the strokes within the sphere. Technically it looks cooler but it also gets rid of the 'e' you can sort of see in it.
You generally want to avoid thin lines like these especially if it's going to be a tiny scaled down icon because it wouldn't look as good.
Try thicker details.
>Just a simple design I whipped up with Illustrator in about a half-hour or so.
Worst thing you could possibly say. You need to be able to explain why you went with whatever elements and why they're better than alternatives. The actual design is almost an afterthought as long as it's not hideous (this is not, it looks nice).
First one looks GREAT because of the implied 3d transparency effect.
I would make the central stroke tinted and slightly blurred to make it look like it's being seen through the frosted glass of the orb, then increase the width of the strokes overall so it's still visible.
I FUCKING HATE the second one, though. Do NOT let your horror vacui trick you into making super overcomplicated designs.

checked the trip dubs

I had a talk with an old family friend that has worked in the industry since the 80s and he educated me on the Quantel series of computers. Quantel Paintbox, HAL, Henry, and the like. I had no idea these existed till a month ago and it's been super fun going down the rabbit hole on these things. the UI on these computers is super basic, but they absolutely were the photoshop and after effects of the 80s and early 90s.

for anyone interested in this style, there is a treasure trove of demoreels, showreels, and company instructional tapes from this era and they go as far as breaking down layer by layer how some of those early motion graphics were made. really really good stuff.

pic related is a screencap from some motion stuff I'm working on thats heavily inspired from Quantel showreel videos.

forgot to include the link
The Amiga Video Toaster is another platform that made the most of limited resources, and actually had the jump on other computer companies for producing video content because Commodore's computers were designed to display on standard TV monitors.


The effects may look cheesy and dated now but a lot of that stems from early overuse just like a lot of early desktop GD effects got overused, because they were previously untouchable for average users and amazing.

This part is really worth considering in the context of capabilities and lesscthan state of the art equipment and techniques-

>A lot of professional companies like Grass Valley would pooh-pooh the Toaster, but you couldn’t beat it on the quality...

>If you didn’t use the built-in Toaster effects, nobody could tell you were using a $5,000 Amiga system over a $50,000 to $75,000 system. You really couldn’t tell the difference in quality.

This is pretty awesome, keep in mind that all all the editing/compositing and rendering required three videotape machines; there was no hard drive and max 18 MB of RAM-

I'm a graphic design student planning to get into figma for companies and enterprises. I know Figma is highly required and people pay a lot for designing landing pages and websites in general.

What are some good designers on Figma I can follow to use as inspiration and learning?

Nobody will pay you to make artsy posters. grow up.
no i have a job in 3D, i just like making posters like these
Am I the only one who finds the “live collaboration” function on Figma to be annoying?

Maybe it’s just the people I work with but it’s starting to get really frustrating when I find out someone else had made edits to my assets without telling me.

can anyone analyze this logo? it was used for a presidential campaing. it worked, the guy won. i find it striking too but cant analyze it properly. anyone can lay down its elements? why is the font like that like far west saloon or circus? is it fused with something else? why the bent bar as base? is it alluding at the sun rising?
The bent bar at the base alludes to this guy's moustache
he won because the other guy was shit, but theyre both shit, so it was voting who was the least shittiest.

He's playful, cheerful, name is solid, the line is just to emphasize.

Congratulations it now reads as BO IC. They could have easily put the logo down a little bit and it would have red just fine.

God damn these /pol/ design fags.
>el merluzo
>el merluzo
I seriously can't believe people think this shit sounds offensive in the slightest. I more often see people mocking them for using that shit lol

I have absolutely no idea about the logo, but imo Boric's victory was 100% about Kast being considered a disgusting piece of shit for most people

Why do most FMV games suck?

Hey /gd/

I have a question, if I produce images using illegal versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, do these images have any metadata that can be tracked to see if they were illegally produced?

and how do I remove such metadata, I tried googling this shit but it doesn't come up with any real answers on this topic

I'm just getting to the point of completing my 4th as well as 5th gd project for my portfolio and want to upload them all to Behance but also still not cause any problems for potential employers.


Also post your questions/queries

How to make an image "lighting neutral", so how do I remove lights and shadows?


Been using Photoshop Elements 10 for a decade for casual drawing, but only now have been learning its more technical features as I'm using the program for texturing 3D objects.

Noob question: what's the proper way to eliminate light and dark gradients from a photo, "neutralize" it in a way? For doing my texturing work I'd rather my image not have any light information as a base, I wanna add it myself later on.
Picrel is an image I took myself and trying to clean up for future texturing use.
The technique I used thus far involves me using Replace Color on the darker and lighter areas to match the color of the image that's the middle ground between them, but I got the feeling this is the wrong way of doing it. I mean it works, but I'm always looking for ways to get better results
Highpass filter in photoshop.
Where can i find graphic designers to commision for a logo, and what is the rightful price to pay for one?
>and what is the rightful price to pay for one?
What designer say it is
I'm new to photoshop and /gd/. I want to make an egg into a rectangular prism while keeping its lighting/shadows, texture, color. I have no idea how difficult of a task this is. Any guidance would be appreciated.
