Copied from an archive post:
-lazymode: find an existing image that has the gamma value you want
-open it in gimp
-"file>open as layers", choose your two pictures.
-resize image if you need to ("image>canvas size") and delete the original layer.
-right click on top layer, "add layer mask"
-"filters>render>pattern>checkerboard", 1 pixel wide
-click on bottom layer, "colors>levels", set "output levels" minimum value *very* high (very pale, close to white)
-click on top layer, "colors>levels", set "output levels" max value a bit lower (slightly dark)

thank you fren

Newbie here.

My work experience placement is with a recruitment agency and I've been tasked with improving their original webinar poster.

I thought I'd take it here to see what's wrong and gain your guys' advice to make this appealing.
Also thank you
Align shit in some kind of a predictable grid.

There are a few books on typography and grids here that talk about it:

If you have a detailed background use a black, white or tinted (like in pic) semi-transparent overlay that is more opaque than what's currently there to highly reduce background contrast and it's clash with text.

Don't align objects and humans in a photo with exact edges of the frame. Portraits need some padding around.
Also the inflated letter spacing for what appears to be Futura font is a bit too wide making characters look too spread out, just use a wider font like Gotham or a larger font size for a narrow font while not squishing the line height too much.
1.5+ unit line height is typically desirable for body text height, big headings can be closer together vertically and also have tighter letter spacing,

If it's A3+ size poster you can probably afford a smaller font sizes and more spacing between things.
Much appreciated anon

What is wrong with the cocksuckers looking for work on this site? I keep sending proposals and out of 20 I send maybe 1 or 2 get a bite. I've made some money on there, don't get me wrong, but it's so fucking difficult to get work. Sometimes I LITERALLY SEND THE CLIENT EXACTLY WHAT THEY WANT IN THE PROPOSAL, with a watermark, and I get no reply. Beginning to think the site is just a feed of bots because of how little people reply and how many weird same-y requests are on there

Anyone else have experience with this?

>great as a side hustle.
what would say your average hourly rate works out as, and what's your country?
OP here,

I've made over $600 dollars on it so far. Just finished another $100 dollar job that took about half a day to finish. The very first job I applied to I got. After that I've had some luck getting more clients, but most just don't respond. I just don't get what's wrong with these retards. I've had two clients I just dropped contact with, but for good reason. Also the platform takes way too much money from freelancers in the form of connects and """"service fee's""""

Whole platform really magnifies how gross and entitled clients can be in this line of work
I'm american. Most of the jobs ive gotten are fixed price, but for the jobs that are hourly I've gotten paid $23/hour. The best money I ever got from it was 3000 dollars in less than a month, though I think I just got really lucky during that time honestly. I think the best way to make money from art is to build skills that are niche.
or create work that you can sell multiple times

Hey, we're a group of graphic design students working on a project exploring questions that people ask themelves during the lockdown. Our Instagram is @lockdownquestions [https://www.instagram.com/lockdownquestions/], we'd apreciate if you guys could send us a few questions that you have/had during the covid lockdown.
why should i be penalised with having my liberty infringed because some old people and some people with poor health will die? i have no responsibility to look after anyone, so why is it deemed acceptable for the government to infringe my rights because the weak will fill the hospitals?
i looked at your profile and desu teh design is weak.

I'm terrible at networking since I've quit drinking, but I inevitably burn bridges when I do drink.
"Say law vee"
If you are 20-24 I'd say get the bachelor, more critique from professors is what I value the most, even if the classes are easy or redundant. I already have a MBA that's why I can't take 5 more years for a bachelor's. I need a job ASAP lol.

I for one believe that organic networking is the key, like working with close friends. Making friends for the sake of building professional connections seems like a bit too forced to me, even worse if you have to alter your psyche just to function in a social environment that you deeply despise.
>do a STEM degree
As someone who actually became a scientist and worked with applications like vector transduction and genetic modification, don't fucking do it. The market is saturated and idiots believe if you have a stem degree your life is set. If you have no real skill sets to set to show to the employee, they're most likely going to reject you, or exploit you by paying you less cause every shmuck has one.
I have an Associates Degree in Advertising and Graphic Technology. I worked in the school print shop (was getting paid) and worked with real clients for the entire two years I was there. I also get paid to do freelance work here and there. I have a resume and a portfolio site I made and paid for, but despite all this even stupid small chain sign shops won't reply back to me. Feels pretty worthless ngl

imagine getting paid millions to not think of literally anything new
they probably overlapped the 69 and 94 lettering vectors and applied the blend tool, thought of it as a super clever idea, then cleaned up a little.. i mean it is ok.
did they get bought out by dunkin donuts parent company or something?

It's not shocking you larps here don't get branding. Because that would require understanding design, and it's place in marketing and branding. And, because you're autistic and think a huge corporation should have a chrome blob with spikes sticking out of it, or some lame ass glitch graphic.

Yup. I tweeted that from now on I'm only going to use basic shapes with color variations for all of my logos, not even a second passed and the requests from big corporations came flooding in, some offering $100k+ for their logo design, others simply wanted to admire my genius, asking me how many decades it took me to figure this out, who were my inspirations etc. That day I just created a bunch of rectangles and circles with different colors for the absolute MASS of GIGANTIC interstellar corporations that were all hungry for a new look. The master of my craft I am, it only took me 3 minutes to finish everything, instantly promoting myself to the rank of grand designeúr and joining the top 100 of wealthiest men on earth. I was nowhere to be found when the angry mobs of normie drones realized that they can't distinguish their favorite consoomer article brands anymore, but it is rumored that I sometimes laugh at them on the intergalactic red dwarf waving forum. Years later the CEOs of all the corporations recieved letters with the following message
>Simplicity is KEY
if they can get you to associate green squares with their agency then the brand works. idk why ppl keep making these threads

These are the only ones that actually look like currency logos.
Not all cryptos are supposed to be used as currencies, though.

Need to find a way to spruce this logo up too
texturize or displace the font to match the tape. dont like the tape in general. have you tried looking for a better one?
i put them up in an etsy store but then left it alone. maybe ill sink some money into some facebook ads but i havent had much success with those in the past
the steering wheel is gross. retrace it with smoother lines. make the mirrored font fade out from the bottom
remove color, haze and make it line art and you have one nice piece for a shirt, poster, sticker, postcard.
Not to say that the color is bad.

how would this contribute to graphic design? In times where landscapes and architecture could be procedurally generated how would this apply? Im not thinking about useless art but more as a framework for our existing toolsets.

I imagine something like having the computer iterate/variate on my basedesign so i can show my client more work upfront without investing more time. Is this stupid? Or at least have a couple iterations and maybe discover something new that works. This could work well on structural stuff like grids in a magazine or website but i dont think it would work with logos.

what are your thoughts? maybe im just lazy
Some people have started to try neural networks on logos but with little success, is still too early to say but is obvious that procedural tools could also be of great use for graphic design and rather than just logos they could be used for creating branding ecosystems.

At best, you might use something like that as stock art, for a background, or texture.

Considering the trend in design these days towards flat, simple shapes, this in a portfolio won't get you hired.

Simple as.

how do i recreate picrelated?

I don't have any paid software aside from GIMP, how do I match white balance between the two?

Yeah I get that, but I think it'll improve with the perfect with the perfect artwork at just the right angle. It doesn't have to be official artwork even, it's just taking forever because i'm using google images

the IRL photo is a recovered Polaroid. I'm sure I can do something with light/darkness and contrast to even it out, but I have no idea how
>I don't have any paid software aside from GIMP, how do I match white balance between the two?
Gimp can do colour balance, it's not an advance thing.
Check ou this man https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3c3S5aS0No4 he explains very well.
its gotta just look right enough and your imagination does the rest
Already looks like a great start. You need to adjust the lighting or the whites and need to add shadows.
