How to get it for free?
>>
>>391430
there's an old version at cgpeers but people commented saying that you have to delete a file or something every time you open Ai and is missing a lot of new features.
Also it's only 50 bucks which is definitely worth it.
>>
>>391444
Is it really that good? I never used it personally so I just wanted to know before eventually buying it
>>
>>391450
Is not that good compared to Glyphs for mac or Fontlab for Windows which are more technical and robust, however Fontself is just easier and way faster since you only work on illustrator and you get to change or test things on the fly, basically it does has pros and cons compared to other software packages but if you mostly work on illustrator then is really worth it.
>>
>>391430
the free version is called FontForge

It's actually mind-boggling how a number of well-educated people went so far into researching the human psyche and the ways mathematics subconsciously affect it just to sell more sugary water.
Makes it all seem kinda pointless when the deepest secrets of life are meant to be sold.

Design is a pretty broad industry - what part of it are you talking about? Because most designers work on stuff that's pretty boring - and most anons here think it's all the fun stuff, like logos and album covers.
But most of design is organization of page/screen elements, communication, prettying it all up - and then making the files correctly so the charges from pre-press aren't more than the actual project costs.
A lot of people think they'd like to be a designer, but they don't know what it really is, and what most of the jobs available are doing, and what they require.
A lot of the threads here are from anons fumbling around with pirated copies of Photoshop, and call themselves designers. If you want to really learn, go look at the classes required to graduate with a degree in it from a respectable university or college, and figure out how to learn all of it on your own. Then go look at job listings, and see what they require. Go look at portfolios of designers and ad agency books to see what kind of work they're doing, and try to recreate it.
Design is a fairly complicated field, that requires a lot of knowledge to operate in. Being a UX/UI designer is a completely different skillset than someone doing offset printing work with photo editing and page layout. In this field, things like "3 years experience" are real, not memes. You have to know what you're doing.
And, the field is stuffed to the gills with actual designers with real skills, experience, and degrees, that you'd be competing with. Especially now, with covid, there's a LOT of designers out of work - and probably will be for a while, as one of the first budgets cut in financial crisis is the design/marketing budget.
And, finally, do you even have any talent for design? It's not something anyone can do. You can know all of the Adobe apps inside and out, but if you can't design, then it doesn't matter.

>But if i look at the gd out side in the world in 2020 i believe a crash course of 2 days would be enough to be as good as theme.
This is fucking ADORABLE.
>>
Yes, you can. The same way you teach yourself anything. Learn the fundamentals of the field and the practice, experiment, appraise, internalise, repeat. I'm simplifying but if you really have a passion for it a few posters on a south-antarctican seal clubbing forum shouldn't be the difference between you going and getting started.

If you think that apple could have made it this far without design then you're delusional. The marketing works for one round of product releases, but it has to be followed up with something good if they want to stay afloat
>>
>>391455
there are occasional very good designers and artists in big companies who make occasional really good designs. and then you have the most time a punch of faggs who copy and past the design. (with minor alterations)
>>
>>387217
Useless word salad.
The reason album covers suck now is there are no budgets for them. I used to do them freelance, and I haven't gotten an offer for one in years that actually paid money, or where the offer wasn't insulting it was so cheap. So now they have fans design them on the cheap, because the industry decided album art doesn't matter because for most people it's a small square in an app. Some bands care enough to commission art, most don't.
>>
>>387315
You're adorable, fighting so hard to prove a point that's hilariously false. Apple has always poured millions into design, from cases to their marketing campaigns to everything else. They changed the entire industry from beige boxes to candy colored cases, they defined the shape of the smart phone, they sold millions of iphones making the shape and color of their white earphones a status symbol, and redefined the desktop space and UI with their OS design.
You may not like Apple, and under Tim Cook that's easy to do, but to say design didn't matter is about the mostly ludicrous and naive thing anyone could say. I'm flabbergasted anyone did. I have to imagine you're some fat stubby, grimy little IT neckbeard jerking off over images of serial ports.

Best readibility and alignment, but pretty boring compared to the others, blame the lack of serifs
>Van Patten
Probably my favourite, but the use of caps, small caps, lowercase and different weights just makes it a bit less consistent.
>Luis
Life of the party, but that print job is horrid.
>BATEMAN
Underrated imo, but that kerning on the ampersand is inacceptable. Old Style numbers are an acquired taste and can be less pleasing on the adress as a single line, but it is a nice touch.
>Allen
Objectively the best, but I can't take copperplate seriously, needs to be a different font imo.

They all have their weaknesses and strengths. But Paul Allen wins this one.

I want to make a milk bottle cap that can be reused.
I want to sell it as a zero waste product

here is my design so far

"milchflaschendeckel" is german for milk bottle cap

what do you think about my design?

i don't hate it but it's definitely not good

>definitely not good

what could one improve?
use a shorter name for it like infiLid
>>
>>391396
The name is fine, maybe a bit long but it's fun to say, I just mean the design of the poster is bad! Just the layout and spacing and weighting of everything isn't right. Like the text is too close to the top, for example, the infinity sign doesn't sit in the space it's in nicely, things like that.

It feels like you haven't put enough consideration into where things are and how they're placed/sized/weighted etc

Great design is when EVERYTHING is considered, absolutely everything, and how it all interacts with each other directly and indirectly
