ITT: we post the mid- & late 2000s aesthetics.
Anything between 2003 and 2012 is welcome 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.

This kinda fits your description. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vahiZbwzk8k
Safdie brothers movies really capture this too
what about stuff that isn't a movement/trend, but more of an archetype that you see manifest here and there across artists and eras and mediums? unnamed vibes that you think only *you* love
There are a few visual trends/styles of that nature that I like, but I don't know how to describe them or what term I could use. What are yours?

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?
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.

You don't, not really. Gifs are a pretty outdated format so you're really finessing it to get it to work.

>You usually don't need more than 24 fps, sometimes you can get away with less

When making logos in Illus, do you draw it on a paper first, digitize it (scan/take a pic, whatever), open it on Illus and then you build vectors on top of the sketch?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
forgot pic
No, because I suck at drawing
yes but the digitizing step is unnecessary if you can use the program well. draw everything on grid paper and you have a scale. then you are just replicating lines in the program.
It really just depends on what you’re comfortable with.

I’m always just jumping straight to Illustrator because I’ve been using it for a decade now. I can get ideas out quickly using it but if I’m struggling with an idea I might switch to pen/paper. It’s also nice just carrying around pen/paper when you’re out and just want to sketch an idea out.

There’s no right answer. Just go with what you find works best for you and your process.
Depends on the logo. Of course.

One of my clients is paying me to make a parody of America's Got Talent merch and, uh, how the fuck is America's Got Talent allowed to look as terrible as it does? Everyone involved with the designwork on this and these-type shows should have their computer access revoked.
A friend of mine works for Freemantle Media on a major network game show and you would be surprised how often he has to "dumb down" his work in order to appeal to the masses. There is a specific way of making this shit to have a "popular" look at feel. Bare in mind that these things are designed as packages, so there needs a ton of different variations to appear on everything, using generic fonts and simple filters, so as to be "accessible". Fancy fonts = Expensive/Exclusive. If it doesn't look like it "costs" a lot, it will drive away the target market.
This. The majority of people are extremely simple minded and straightforward. Just slap a bunch of sparkle and shine to get their attention

you would of been better teaching about using a blank layer and current & below, to make it a non destructive edit, but you didn't even do that to yours, you just showed whatever crap advice that was
It is non-destructive, "Layer 0 copy" is a copy of the original base-layer image, which remains untouched. And tools like the spot healing brush don't work on completely blank layers. I also wouldn't do "current & below" for this particular edit either, but instead "current layer only" so that the edits are minimal.
>And tools like the spot healing brush don't work on completely blank layers.
You can technically do what >>420999 said with a blank layer and "Current & Below", but IME sometimes it doesn't look as good since the transparencies sometimes produce weird artifacts.

I'd do what you did but then mask out the areas where the edits are so that the edits are very minimal.
Can you explain what that is?

oh i guess thats a halo?
i was gonna say get rid of the geometric shit that doesnt add anything - make better sparkles, ditch the ellipse or make a beter halo to make better sparkles. pretend the head is in a square frame - adjust better halo and sparkles fora square frame. the text can be like a an equal L shaped frame to the square on the left and lower - but it needs to reinforce the square framing. the N of moon and L of lagoon are diagonal, with aan invisible square separating them.
also, try some horrendous colors

.gif is bad, quality-wise, but it also takes up a lot of space - to match a .jpg it would actually be a much bigger file.
I think it’s because of the way banners work that they have to be .png
