the licensing on fonts is getting fucking stupid. which foundry is this?

need to avoid them.
lol are they dumb? what they are asking won't hold up in US courts
Reads like the House Industries license, they're the most restrictive foundry I'm aware of - that kind of contract is why I'll never buy a House font and steer clients away from them.
It *has* held up in court. House sued NBC Universal and won.
If you have pirated House fonts, toss 'em. Not worth the risk.

Why are recruiters so narrow minded?
Good design = good design

Why do they have a problem with generalists?
Typically the jobs recruiters are looking for candidates for have a specific style or toolset in mind - a generalist type job, they usually won't use a recruiter to fill.
And, most recruiters are full of shit. They claim to have jobs, but for design positions, it's very rare.

What programs to use for graphic design? like logos, album covers, wallpapers ETC ETC

I have no idea but I need to know how to do this stuff for my hobby
hmm It looks like some 3d modeling mixed with photoshop, if it were me id use rhino and photoshop, the background was likely stolen and edited, the other objects were rendered and had some texture applied to it
>In Photoshop
Okay, if you're gonna be making logos and stuff? Make those assets in a vector-based program like Adobe Illustrator. That shit sizes up without any pixelation. Photoshop is good for photo manipulation and stuff like that, but InDesign is best for layouts and is (to my knowledge) the current industry standard.
>tl;dr learn illustrator, shit sizes up nice and clean and crisp since it's vector based.
yeh I agree make the logo on illustrator but op was asking about how pic related was made and I think pic related was made in some 3d modeling program+photoshop, maybe im just shit at illustrator but I cant see how the pic op posted would be made in illustrator
thanks for helping, i just downloaded gimp and i will start from there

Hey guys, got myself into a big trouble last class.
I have been tasked to make a 3d model of an insole with zero 3d modeling experience, is there a way to download some template of a insole or some video tutorial about how to make something like that?

Thanks for reading...
super easy download some free models from here
and use c4d to cut out the insole shape from the shoe. (search tutorials for c4d boole substract, mesh cut or knife tool)

also there's a 3d board >>>/3/ with luck someone on there could do it for you if you put all the info + models.
learn to make shit and be a good fucking student instead of fucking around with your hamburger
Thank you a lot
careful with generic shit, teachers know them already.

This looks terrible, what the fuck is wrong with you people?

>two asymetrical boobs/buttcheeks
>thin curved stripe running across like a supermarket ad

Besides Rio is the lowest-common-denominator of our country, a complete shithole. imagine having some Commiefornian boobs as the flag of the USA, that's what you did.

Played around with this >>374514 cause the colors were burning my eyes.

Overall I don't believe in fixing what isn't broken, but the most important part of making a new flag would be making sure it doesn't just look like another country's flag with inverted colors.

The shield is kinda cheating, but it helps making it not-Gabon.

Green is the worst color you can have on a flag, so I tried to keep it secondary.

The branding work is very solid. The club wanted to become more than a Football club, and more of a lifestyle brand. And the current identity solves this problematic perfectly.

The issue with it is that more than any other brands, fans are extremely powerful, and generally very attached to their club's roots and values. And many of them felt left out with this new direction.
Honestly, that looks like a real club crest. Shame about the retarded name and franchised league.

can we talk portfolio websites? what is the best way of going about it, and what would an employer or client like to see? What should you put on it vs. omit? I.E. throwing all work on one page vs. picking and choosing only your best work and having detailed breakdowns on projects at the expense of looking like you have less experience. Also there's the multidisciplinary aspect of it, what should you do if you have work that isn't explicitly design, like directing music videos, making clothes, etc. Should those be included? basic HTML site that's entirely unique vs. a more template-y looking wix / squarespace site?

interested to hear your opinions on all this.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Has more to do with the content of your portfolio. If you have a bunch of case studies you should probably have separate pages for each project. If you're doing 1-3 slides per project (which you almost never should be doing) then you can get away with a single page website.

Shoot for 8-10 projects in a particular field of design, I would stray away from too many different disciplines in one portfolio. If you don't have enough work in one discipline, make more.

People take much more to sites that are made by the designer, especially if you're trying to get Web Design positions, but portfolio templates work just fine if the work is good.
best project first, bunch of stuff, 2nd best project last. only put stuff you're proud of on there and try your best to replace your weakest works with better stuff as soon as you can.
Note that this is not an easy thing to determine, a bunch of my clients mentioned they contacted me because of a specific piece in my portfolio, which I considered awful and wanted to replace ASAP, it's still there because it's still getting me clients, even though most of my peers would agree it's awful.
Make sure your portfolio reflects you as a person.
anywhere but here? you seen the quality of these slobknobs' work?

Imagine needing a plugin for something that takes three clicks.

1. Set text in white
2. Outline in dark.
3. Blur
4. Threshold
5. Invert.

What would you call this style? (pic related)

I used to this sort of design all the time when I was younger, I haven't seen it in years.
shame too, maybe it's nostalgia, but late 90s-mid 2000s designs had such a weird but cool look to them
I've always wondered what sort of resources were used to make them...
2001 shit album art
"My 16 year old cousin has a pirated copy of Photoshop, we could get cheap art that way." style.
I love this style, they should bring it back

can you sirs please make me a logo using letters JMT and have it be india themed thank you in advance
