I didn't find a critique thread, so I'm making one.

I'll start by posting 3 different versions of a logo.

Which one you think is better: 1, 2 or 3?

This is for a tech (software development) company btw.

Goth girl looks like a bitch.
Little boy looks like a dumb little shit.
Old woman is old.
French man looks like a humorless fuckwad.

All non-white people are happy and represented in purely positive means.
You can't just have a normal-looking white guy in this art anymore. Overwhelmingly when corpos decide to put white people in their art, its white women. No happy, smiling white man enjoying his time in the diversity group.

Its not about making art where all people are shown getting along, its about giving more positive representation to only some groups. White men scary. Can't touch the white men.

Hit the nail right on the head.

I'm sure a lot of people on /gd/ went to art school, and know this kind of person all too well. The wokesters that will ignore the burning and looting of our cities but will claim that "all art is political" and how their work will be about "fighting for social justice".

They sip on their fancy coffees and act like they can be the saviors of the same people that they are above.

I did exactly what you're describing and can't get a job in an office. Associates in Advertising and Graphic Tech, worked with real clients for class projects, picked up a few clients on freelance sites, have a full portfolio of work with said clients and obviously state I know how to use InDesign, Illustrator and PS. Nobody even calls me back at all.
>>
>>402178
You start by having good work.
If you have good design work, you'll know how to design a single space for that work to share.
That shared space is your portfolio.
You're welcome.
>>
>>403959
Not really. I'm of the opinion people just hire you these days if they like your face or not.

Tried charging more for changes in the design and the client said "ok"

Okay? Every freelance contract I sign allows for one round of proofing and changes, and more requires a fee. That's industry standard.

You do have a contract, right?

Just search beginners tutorials in Youtube, you'll find something useful.

keep at it mate you'll get there, watch some tutorials learn some basics

everything you do now should look terrible to you in about 4-6 weeks, that's natural and means you are learning, avoid the people that like everything they'll only hold you back, its hard to learn in a leftist world they hinder progress

Lay off the fucking weed, Jesus. People can barely make out what you're trying to say. If not that, then you're 13 or have some mental deficiency. People will "drag" you because you communicate like a spasticated chimp pounding a window.

In regards to your question, if you're going to ask shit like this without consulting the avalanche of material a Google search would do, then you're not gonna make it as you clearly don't have the drive and focus to see something through to its end.

It should work without any extra effort. Im fairly certain they dont need any pairing or connecting. i have a couple wacom devices and many pens. one wacom pen will work on any wacom tablet.

make everything small and upscale to your desired size, the future of gd is here finally

personally i do it the opposite way but I'll try to learn

Heres the trick:
1 Open msPaint.
2 in gimp make a seperate layer thats 1 solid colour
3 while still in gimp merge your original image onto the solid colour layer. Basically it should be your transparent image with a solid colour background so it should just be 1 singe layer from the solid bg+your image.
4 copy the new merged layer
5 goto msPaint and paste that which you copied from gimp.
6 THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS
Hold key: Ctrl and press the + or - keys from the number pad.

There will be minimal distortion but this method should allow your image to keep its pixels from bleeding.

Also you may have to actually paste the image into msPaint and copy it again because sometimes msPaint will skew it.
>>
>>403543
I have no clue about GIMP but this is how you would do it in Ps (guessing should be similar)
>open 64x64 canvas
>Image>Image Size
>change size to some multiple of 64 ex: 512x512
>pick "Nearest Neighbor (hard edges)" as the resampling option

On topic of presentation...

It seems that photograph of a crusty ballpoint pen sketch out of a notebook in an angle (an even some instagram filter applied) impresses clients far more than black and white vector shape of the thing in it's most precise and honest final form in center of the canvas exported / screenshotted straight out of Illustrator.

I guess seeing the shape, even in imprecise sketch form on a physical material is more tangible and relatable than perfectly sterile digital representation.

Are the digital process aesthetics alienating?

whoever bullshits the most, the more successful you'll be.
UI/UX are the biggest bullshitters and they get all the money.
Plenty of youtube videos of becoming UI/UX Designers in 6 months making 6 figures.
It's all about presentation and persuasion

I always said, you wanna be a good designer?
Learn how to write and learn how to speak publicly and learn how to present.

Dog and pony show.

Look at Paul Rand and how he presented the Next Logo to Steve Jobs and his team.

It's a shit logo but Paul sold it smoothly.

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.
