Hey there Anons. I usually redesign my website once a year, and this year I'm thinking to do a grey scale Geocities style site with early 2000s forum style buttons (think Gamestop forums, etc) that are slight highlighted like the icons next to the 'New' text in this link:
https://www.webmenumaker.com/menu-linux.html

Combined with the fact that I want the menu to be just a simple menu on the left side of the screen, should I opt to do all the buttons as just images in GIMP accordingly? Where could I learn how to do old school Geocities style buttons as well? Also, I'm thinking the grey scale of the site would be something similar to this site as well: https://antialias.se/ Thanks.

Thanks Anon, good idea. Will do.

Use gifcities, search for some gifts, then click on them, it will bring you to an archived neocities website. I usually type home or next page and that gives me good results

Before it was a must but nowadays because work gets diversified we have a graphic designer and an illustrator, and there is no real need to excell at both, but it will give you versatility.

How does one make "art" like this?
More specifically the lighting and bloom?
I was thinking Illustrator but some of these look more 3D

Artist is Dave Chenell

I don't know the correct art-school way to achieve what this illustrator does so I don't really want to downplay how cool it does look, but I know that in photoshop you can mess with gradients, light layers and glow effects super easily, which is how you get really cool ghostly mountains and stuff.

ITT: we post the mid- & late 2000s aesthetics.
Anything between 2003 and 2012 is welcome here.
THIS IS NOT A Y2K THREAD
DO NOT POST Y2K HERE
While yes, those two aesthetics may overlap, y2k already has its own thread, so post blatant y2k stuff (i.e. anything from between 1996 to 2002) there instead.

Hey guys, I have to design a magazine for school and I've created a mockup so long. I've never done a magazine before so I'm unsure about the composition. It's meant to be a double-page spread of a band and I decided to go with a funky magazine. Any tips or advice?
>>
>>421055
If its for a school maker sure whatever you are printing on can support full bleed and trimming. Otherwise but a white border along the outside on purpose.
>>
move the large photo to the left page.
put the actual copy in there instead of the lorem ipsum bullshit. need to see all the widows, rivers, rags/line breaks, etc.
the colors arent great. its a ll a bit too muted and muddy. print it out or simply view it in b&w, and you'll see what i mean.
the 'ocean alley' type is weak.
where the hell is your grid. you need a grid.

its just a mockup i made in Photoshop. its supposed to be super rough. but i appreciate the advice, ill keep it in mind

the fasces is decent but leaves more to be desired,
it's too complex as a symbol and it's minimalist variants usually defeat the purpose of the image- bundle of rods signifying unity.

however the problem is that the name is derived from the symbol, so i doubt a concession can really be made for it.

That looks like Gary Baseman, great artist, he did the Disney show Teacher's Pet as well as the box art for Cranium. This is really more of an art question than a design question, imo, as an expat of /co/.
>>
>>421108
Wow, thanks, Anon!
I was actually looking for this book, but I knew the artwork had to have been done by the same artist when I saw the box art.
>This is really more of an art question than a design question, imo, as an expat of /co/.
Yeah, sorry about that! When I saw OP's image which reminded me of Baseman, I just had to ask.
