Your art looks like something I'd see in every single pamphlet, business website, doctor pamphlet, ever. So I guess good luck since it's the exact art style companies love to use.

What monitor do you guys use/would recommend?

In terms of price, mid-level realistically but high-end ones are welcome too.

>Most common monitors in design studios are the iMac pro
Depending on the type of design, this is mostly true.

>Only place I've seen a lot of ColorEdge monitors are for the video editors or 3D-artists, because they need to use specific hardware to render their shit.
I mostly see ColorEdge in places that are doing color correction, on a pro level. Nobody here is set up to do that kind of work, knows how to do that kind of work, or needs to, because pre-press will do it for you.
I'm trained in color correction, and that's why I know the high end stuff at home is a waste of time, because it will never be supported by the right environment and tools and training. I know how to set up and use a ColorEdge, and I know I don't need to.

Depends if you do GD with a lot of 3D or video editing. If so, you may want to try an ultrawide (21:9 for example) monitor. Thats kinda like having 2 Monitors which s very handy and I prefer one huge screen over 2 smaller screens.

i dont think its so much that the golden ratio is pretty to look at. it's similar to the rule of thirds. it gives balance to an image.

also it's in nature.

so from what i could understand from the video your theory is that apple used a random application to the golden ratio.

but what you didnt do was fit the whale back into the golden ratio. you just used the shapes from apples logo.

now make the whale your youtube logo for memes and get rich

youre out of your league doing the background - fix the initial bit, reconcile the strangenesses: the difference between the angels and death (like diff styles) and just get a first acceptable pass at that done

its not great, but can at least become passing for what it is

If you don't know shit about either GD or presentation it's not on me, just putting drop shadows on logos makes them hella bad from the get go, less recognizable and readable and of course makes that shit looks old/washed up.

What's cringe was thinking that any """decent""" graphic designer here wouldnt trashtalk the whole lot.
Not putting retarded effects on logos are pretty much the first thing to know in the field, it just mean you either quite new to illustrator/photoshop and you were like " hihihi lmao i know how to put effects look at me I'm adobe certified ^^^^^" or you are plain retarded.

And also fuck off with your "adding drop shadows to make something stand out more on a transparent background", you just thought it would looks good rather than "make something stand out more", else you would have just use a jpg format without any background and it would have done the trick for 99% of those posted, don't find excuses, you suck.

I started off using Final Cut Pro because I got the student discount that comes with logic pro x. It took me a short while to realize both software suck ass so I switched to Adobe Premiere (which I got for free as a student bundle) and Ableton Live 9 (which I pirated lol) and I reached ascended mode. I needed to use truly inferior software to appreciate Adobe Premiere. Before using any of this shit though, I used

They have their pros and cons, but premiere just has everything I need.

How do you guys feel about the Intuos Pro?
Thinking bout getting a large to replace my decrepit Bamboo
>>
>>387923
I have a medium and its amazing. I looked at a large, but it didn't seem to be suitable for my needs.
>>
>>387948
i was considering the medium initially, but I have a 27 inch screen and I read that the bigger tablet is better for larger screens. Though i honestly dont need much convincing to waste more money.

how do you store yours when not in use? I'm considering ordering straight from wacom and they have a tablet bag available
>>
>>387923
I had a medium one and loved it for a long while. the only downside is not directly drawing onto a screen, but if you don't have the budget for those tablet-esque ones this one is rather decent, specially if you're not paying a lot for them
>>
>>387950
I have a pretty large screen as well, but it partially came down to how much hand/wrist movement you really need in order to render. Even drawing on a huge monitor and a huge file, your hand really only moves around so much while drawing.
For storage, I just put it on my bookshelf life a book. I keep it next to my scanner.
>>
>>388085
>Drawing on the screen
I've used this type, and didn't like it for a few reasons.
1.) takes up a video slot. If you only have 2 or 3 slots, then one of them now can't be an actual monitor.
2.) The feel is all wrong. Drawing on glass is wierd. The tooth of the regular tablet is pretty good naturally, and a sheet of paper over it makes it feel like real paper
3.). After drawing with a tablet for years, I got used to being able to see 100% of the image while I was working on it, and not having my hand in the way.
4.) Cost. They tend to more expensive, heavier, less portable, and more delicate than a Intuos.

Well I graduated college last may and I had an internship over the summer. After that I started freelance work from home, so in that regard it hasn't changed my workflow that much. But it feels like I have more competition now that a lot more people are doing it.

Fuck off. You're the problem. Any designer who isn't asking for minimum wage plus 10 is going to be your Photoshop™ starter pack. Little to no experience. Good luck getting the right dimensions, print quality or file types. Save yourself the headache and back and forth, pay more, get better designers, and get better results with little to no issue. Having Photoshop on your computer doesn't make you a designer. Work experience and an actual career based on design does. That's around the time we start making money. Pay us what you owe.
