The world's a small place now. I'm not in Canada but I can probably do that work. I'm a freelance graphic designer who works on t-shirts.

Can you tell me a bit more about what you're looking for? Do you want to vectorize a mountain or do you want the picture of a mountain as it is over a card?

What do you think

Hey bros. I’m a young designer who graduated college last spring. Degree in graphic design, internship and part time job under my belt. With the pandemic going on I had to do construction work to pay the bills for most of 2020. But a few months ago I decided to switch gears and fully commit to starting my career as a creative. Quit construction and began doing freelance. Applied to dozens of jobs in my new area, no fucking luck. Couple of interviews but nothing substantial. Getting real tired of this and it’s not working out financially. Scared I’m going to have to give up this dream and go back to digging ditches. Any advice on improving my skills or the job search? Thanks bros.

Boomers/Mexicans starting their own business don’t know how to design for shit and would rather walk in to a store and let someone else take care of it.

Easier said than done. How do you go about paying for a brick and mortar building to set up shop in as well as the thousands of dollars in other expenses?
>>
>>409507
Rent an office space or find an empty building.

Most places dont ask for a deposit, as long as you have the first months rent.

It's all about calling places.

How do I know where a good spot to set up shop is? Am I supposed to look around and be like "Yep, all of this signage and shit sucks" and go around asking people if I can fix their shit?

minimalism has meant the total death of creative graphic design, EVERYTHING looks the same now when it comes to logos, i get shit like removing the metallic sheen of the apple logo, but ffs, why are corporations like Firefox butchering iconic logos with disgusting oversimplification?

I think the logo can be read from right to left, and it's about how a mix of capitalism and communism are the de facto ideology of the West, totally consuming nationalism (white) and therefore killing the human spirit.

Better question, why did Firefox sign the Stallman open letter to exile him from his own creations for muh trans retard feelings?

The concept of science isn't bad you retard
SCIENCE! is the modern day religion with therapists/academics being the priest class.

>The simpler the logo: the better your brain assimilates it.
that's retarded. if the logos are too simple then they all look the same.
by taking away subtle points of reference you take away the brain's ability to make quick differentiations. eventually the logo is so simple that it has to just be a word to be understood at all. fuck modern design trends and fuck you.

It was a few collaborative world-building threads on /tg/ about a month ago. Arvantha is basically a semi-medieval shithole that's falling apart at the seams as various factions try to wrestle control from the royal palace.
The WRON thing was a bit of a stroke of luck, someone else came up with the white crow as the symbol for Arvantha and I just put 1 and 1 together basically.

For the raw photos, it could be caused by either early digital sensors or more likely the chromatic abberation of cheaper lenses. For the prints and posters, it's probably the ink they used and/or fading over time.

I've got a problem with printing a certain design.

Context:
The design is irrelevant, but it has a background which starts in absolute black and then has a gradient turning gray.
The design is all black and white except for a single line of text which is on color, the design has a lower impact without it. So I can't print it in grayscale.
My printer is an inkjet Canon Pixma iX6810. I am satisfied with the quality.

Problem:
When printing in color the gradient to gray turns into a purple grayish tint.
When printing in grayscale the gradient color is just as it is supposed to be but obviously the colored line of text is now in grayscale and has no impact in the design.

Does anyone know any way to fix this? I have obviously no experience with inkjet printers. I've searched online but to no avail. I have no idea how to look further for solutions.
If it matters, the document is in CMYK by the way.

>>409627
Yeah It's my own design, I tried it but no . I really though it would work.
>>
>>409631
Did you check the manual to see if there's some way of calibrating your printer?
Maybe you could run a test sheet to see if magenta is printing too heavy?
As for the gradient, what are the CMYK values of the two sliders?
>>
>>409637
Values are C: 0% M: 0% Y: 0% K: 100% and C: 0% M: 0% Y: 0% K: 64%

Magenta Cyan and Yellow look all fine but Black still has that OFF tint slightly purple, only when it's shades of gray though. Full black looks perfectly black.
When using grayscale it looks perfectly fine so it has to be software related.

Checking right now on the calibration matter but not finding anything.

This might be your answer here:

>>
>>409645
I finally was able to solve it:
I just changed the color mode to: manual and set everything to 0.
Seems like using automatic mode when printing in color automatically turns your grays into neutral grays, whatever that means. But it seems to make them look reddish purple.
Hope this helps anyone.
Thanks guys for your help.
