What are u about?
Art no longer embodies the values of the audience, at the advent of modernism everything was designed to advocate change while tradition was mocked.

DTP fag here. How do the UX/UI designers know where to place all the elements of an interface? I've been designing a website for a friend and I spent most of the time trying to find proper sizes and positions for every element. Are there any guidelines for this, or are you supposed to move everything 1px at a time and eyeball it?

>are you supposed to move everything 1px at a time and eyeball it?

Yes. That's literally your job as an UI/UX designer.

And, in corporate work, you're generally given instructions by an art director/creative director and/or working group for the overall design.

The UX/UI guys are just the ones who write the code for the elements that someone else designed.
yes and no - designers study proportion so they have to move shit around 1 pixel at a time
responsive website design throws half that out the window tho
*dont have to move shit*

Different user, but do you have those videos pirated anywhere?

Dog shit
Post better work then
Why? There are few actual designers here, and you just want to shitpost at him.

Hello /gd/, currently a NEET taking some 4 semesters off from college due to school stress and depression. Don't have any plans on returning so I'm looking towards fields that I could do remotely and without interacting with others.

I've always enjoyed designing stuff but I've never done anything of the sort on a computer, I wanted to know what it would take for a complete beginner to go from not knowing anything about wb to making a living off of it.

Are there any courses you'd recommend? Thank you, God Bless
Read the sticky. You're going to need a little bit of talent if you want to start late.

Lurk here and other design channels and get a feel for what is generally considered good. Once you have that down, try making things and posting them in design threads for feedback. If people tell you it's shit, it's shit so sack it and make new ones. Keep the designs that get good feedback and compile them into a portfolio that you can show to clients.

As for courses, just look up a tutorial on youtube for the software you want to use. You shouldn't need courses specifically for design. It's more about acquiring a taste for what looks good, not to you, but to your client.
If you are good you can actually earn more working with hands instead of computer. Calligraphers and illustrators earn a lot
If you can't hack college, you can't hack graphic design. You're trying to get into a field that's all stress from constant deadlines.

This is probably a troll, but what the hell, I'll play. What do you actually think design is? The image you posted is 50's/60's illustration, not design, by the way.

And, Lynda.com. Pay the $25 a month for a couple of months (to get the whole course and the project files), and do ALL of the courses for InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Then see how you feel about it as a career. Throw in Pagemaker for fun, since a lot of design is web based now.

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?

more like $30. as a third worlder (a real, dirty poor one) i'd need at like $12 every day to half survive over here. upwork takes 20% your money, and paypal + local bank another 30%
most probably, there are huge mills who knows where, getting all the contracts, and paying 3rd world artists a low but stable income
the real problem is first world clients are usually cheap fucks that won't give a shit for the quality of your work, but the price in your proposal
I've gotten decent money using it, nothing that I would call a living, but great as a side hustle. I've gotten a few vector art jobs but logo design is VERY competitive so you're going to have a hard time with that. Most of my jobs have been doing illustrations for people, for books and t-shirts and whatnot. You kinda have to search for jobs that aren't as saturated, I always send custom PDFs of my work with the proposal too, give them a portfolio of shit they'll actually care about...
There’s rumors, which I believe are true, that they post fake job postings to extract points from job applicants. Someone actually mentioned this in their article with proof and got banned from the site; the link is also banned so take that to your interpretation as you will
wouldn't surprise me after those jews decided to charge real money for their funny points, required to make a proposal
glad they had to backpedal in less than a year
you're participating in a race straight into the bottom of the trash

get better or step off

Post soulful websites! Im starting with this flash website
Also question: Do you /gd/ anons think this type of designs are still good and cool or do you think that they are actually outdated and we should leave them in the past?

this actually looks really nice, it is comfortable to look at.
Do I look like some kind of boomer?
Websites like this are the shit. 90% of website now are bootstrap shite. Bootstrap is very functional though so you can't blame them too much.

Guys i want to work on cryptocurrency projects and blockchain. I am a shitty designer, i know how to use photoshop and illustrator, have a ''gd degree'' thats worthless. What skills i need to aquire to get into that crypto space? What is essential skillset for making UI/UX? Also what skills for Web design? Im very very bad at match ( my skills are of the 4th grader) so no programming for me. If i dont get my dream job in a year i will kill myself, because im sick and tired working in the warehouse, i know its my fault because i dont study after work, but its all so tiresome guys, please give me hope. btw im 31 years old
*meant very bad at math and logic, sry
Don't panic. The last thing you want to do in this situation is panic. Many have panicked due to events similar to your story, but I assure you panicking will not solve anything. In fact, if you are presented with a tough math problem than you are used to,consider restraining the panic you may feel. As for the warehouse we have all had one of those jobs before, so I can say confidently your best option is to not panic. You say you don't study? No issue, just stay calm and everything will be ok.

Now go get em, tiger!
Dude, what skills do i need? i know i need to study in my free time, but what? Which software, which skills? My biggest achiles heel is that gd is very broad thing and i try to learn everything but at the same time i fail to specialize. Skills to have for crypto industry?
i think crypto is similar to fintech. What are most desirable skills in fintech?
bump :(

How do you properly fit an anime character into an IRL photo? I can't find the exact perspective and angle for the character that I want and it always comes out just off
idk about the angle stuff but for color you should match white balance between these two photos

like this but for youtubers/influencers/etc. i tried to sign up for here but i think it's too high quality for me right now. the idea is that i want to start at the way bottom of the rung and slowly move up from there.
should have mentioned i want to work on thumbnails in particular.

Hey not sure where to post this.

Does anyone know what this style of art is called?
I remember it being popular in the 90s.
Lot's of squares and rectangles,sharp angles and lots of curves.
No idea what you would call it.

I love this style because it reduces all the non-essential stuff down to simple colors and lines without losing anything. It's hard to describe.
