how to create the most kickass powerpoint to ever exist for me and my homies' university project?
use something like prezi
or use presets
>Subtle animations
>More pictures, less text
>Know your shit, don't rely on the slides
Just remember that unless it's a powerpoint made to show your graphic design skills, it should be a document that prioritizes the information above anything else. It shouldn't matter how good it looks as long as the information is understandable.
Throw some sick transitions in that bitch

How would you call this font? I've tried /Victorian scientific/ but nothing really comes up, and everything is in gothica bastarda or similar
Roman-type / old-style / antiqua.
Those terms are the most used for describing fonts that are based from when typography were made by physical lead blocks.
Thanks bud, i managed to find a few with those keywords, really appreciate it.

You draw your letters and just go batshit on them, just keep shaping everything into edgy shit, morph it to be more symmetrical, then go at it again, just don't think about what you're doing, just let your inner edgelord out.
Once you like the rough shape you trace that into a clean version and start the real work.
Guides and rule: dont ask it on 4chan. To many christian dads
yeah dude, the death metal world is all about the rules

There are some things that define a metal band logo. That's why he must mean with "rules".

Obviously "Party Cannon" stands out among all the logos in the photo, but if you show someone that exact logo they will hardly tell you that it was made for a metal band since it doesn't have any of those crazy shapes.
All those except 2nd highest most leftmost look boring and shitty as fuck.
If you aren't experienced, just write the letters normally first but progressively add more metall-y or gothic-looking elements, take examples from Proclamation and Blasphemy.

y2k aesthetic is ethereal/space-agey, 2000s aesthetic is warmer, more down to earth whilst being maximalist
notable phenomena include gaudily-textured cgi anthropomorphs, potato quality internet media, maximalist design cues (sometimes to the point of being cluttered and overwhelming)

Whatever happened to the graphic tablet general?
12 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
According to some friends in animation programs they've basically caught up with cintiqs.
I bought a 22" Gaomon tablet for a small fraction of what you'd pay for an equivalent Cintiq and in my opinion, with the exception of perhaps color reproduction (I'm colorblind anyway so it doesn't matter that much), it blows the fucking doors off of Wacom.
>Fully laminated
>Comes with a well-designed kickstand
>Seamless bezel
>The drivers are a DREAM to install and use
>No proprietary/embedded cable bullshit like with the old UX series, it's just USB-A, HDMI and a 12vdc barrel jack
>comes with a perfectly-done screen protector installed from the factory
>No gimmicky touch support, 100% palm rejection
>doesn't weigh 20lbs

The only Wacom devices I've used that haven't been buggy, fragile, inaccurate pieces of garbage that need driver hacks to get half-decent calibration have been the old ISD digitizers everyone was putting in laptops and tablets 10-15 years ago. Those are actually pretty solid. But even then I cannot tell you how many times wacom's drivers have crashed and broken something halfway through a drawing. There is no excuse for an industry leader to have drivers this bad.
Pretty much this, they're just lacking in terms of color accuracy and resolution.
There is a huge price gap between the cheap 1080p mediocre color chink tablets and the 4k Wacom Cintiqs and I'm really baffled that nobody has filled that yet.
Sticking to my Cintiq Pro 16 because I love my comfy small 4k display, but it will be my last Wacom product, it's only a question of months before XP-Pen/Huion etc. drop their 4k tablets at this point.
Using a $20 Huion tablet. Works fine as long as you zoom in.

Make the edges sharp and bring back the background, but make it customizable. your friend is a fat useless pig that needs to be put down.
>whats your URL?
Idk, I don't like it myself to be honest. I will rewrite everything (soon hopefully, because I'm threatening to rewrite for 2 months now)
I try to copy others stuff, and I realize I don't like those either.

Idk, I haven't head from them ever since.

alright anon, cc 2019 all creative apps or whatever the fuck in a single installer (yes you can choose what you wanna install individually)

Paste this into a browser window and it'll automatically open whatever torrent client you use:


don't be stupid though use a VPN so your ISP doesn't rape you

download the 19GB iso and run "autoplay.exe"

it'll disconnect your internet while the installer is running to be safe from adobe

good luck anon

I’m a graphic designer. I make shit. I’m not a lawyer. Would it be my fault or the clients fault that they don’t check the logo if it’s been used by someone else? I always state to hire a lawyer to double check if someone else doesn’t have the logo.
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
You need to hire a copy write attorney to advise you and draw up a contract for you to use when entering into a work agreement with a client.
So you’re telling me all the designers who make trademarks consult a lawyer before delivering a product? I know big firms do but small people like me can’t afford one
It depends which country you are in.
Some artists actually register their provides and work accounts (upwork) to another country for liability.

It's not straightforward, I know that much.
Cost is prohibitive, like "just go see a doctor".

Most people I know get a generic contract for their legal jurisdiction (usually their country) and just edit in their details- and they don't alter it unless it's a big client.

Because when you sell art, you are really selling the art+usage rights.
Piracy is a huge issue, if your client removes anti-piracy features from your work and a third person (china, india) pirates it your portfolio may be seriously de-valued.
You also want to avoid being scalped by someone who buys and just re-sells your work, depending on what you sell this may/not be an issue. I have already had problems with people impersonating me and trying to mark up my work before they have even bought it.
Most platforms don't care about this because it's too hard for them to enforce and they often get paid twice when this happens

I'm majoring in it right now and it's interesting.

ux is one of the best paid fields of all design related stuff. as soon as you have a little bit knowledge in programming, you are worth gold to many many companies. get some experience in a renowned agency for a year or two (they might pay not as much as others for junior, but it is worth it later on) and then find a job in another company or start your own business (e.g. do ux for start ups)
I'm thinking of going into UX as well. I'm also interested in motion graphics and 3D, but these fields would take so long to master and they just don't pay as much as UX does.
How does one even get started with becoming a UX designer? Do i need a degree or can it be self taught? Do i need to also learn programming and will i be bored if i like to be creative more than doing research? I appreciate all your answers.

me on the right
Get involved with a team or project as either a developer, graphic designer, or product manager. Help wireframe various pieces of the project. Create a design document if you don't have one so that you can ensure that your project holds a sense of cohesion. Make sure you shadow several users of your project and get their feedback (eg, show off a feature by describing it, then prompt them to use it without you telling them exactly how to use it, give them hints if they get stuck, ask them what they expect something to do before they interact with it, etc, and use the results to refine the feature). Deliver your projects. Then use that experience as a pivoting point to approach a company as a UX designer, showing them your documentation and mockups, describe your customer interactions and how you applied their feedback, explain how you communicated your design with the team, and explain how that experience would be used to benefit the potential employer.

My degree has fuckall to do with UX but I make $120K plus a nifty RSU plan doing it now. A portfolio will do so much more for you than a degree will. You don't need to get a gig to put things in your portfolio. I landed my first UX job with a portfolio made of make believe projects. From there it's a lot easier. First job is the hardest to nab.
That's really great advice, thanks.
I see a lot of people use title UI/UX designer, is that something that i can master and work on together, or should i specialize in either UI or just UX?
