Where's a decent place to find could pallets and hues for web design? I very rarely use light colours and need to find a light pallet to go with a dark site I'm building. All I can think of is
I use coolers.co most these days. There's tons of other places.
>domain for sale
you mean coolors.co?

Does anyone have a crack for the adobe softwares? Out of college now and I really don't have the spare money to pay for the softwares I need. I need Illustrator, Photoshop, Aftereffects, Indesign, and a couple others.

You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.
Thank you a thousand times for this.
no mention of monkrus on this thread?
I wanted to give them the "cleanest" method I know, so verified official installers only + the minimum crack required. So they can source their own installation from Adobe (or prodesign tools) themselves.
Does Monkrus have a crack only download?
I will give it a try if he does.

does anyone know how to recreate the relief effect from ibis paint? i hate ibis paint but all the programs ive tried dont give the same result. does anyone know a program that will give me the same look?
It's called paint it yourself you lazy fuck
if u dont have anything nice 2 say, dont say anything at all..
Don't know much about ibisPaint, but you could potentially just import the section of your piece that you want to have that effect into it, and then move it to your preferred software.

I realized that I don't have another chance to make money.
Getting a job without college and/or experience is impossible in my country.

I will go back to freelance sites, I remember that I stopped at a time when I couldn't get any more projects. (idk why)
Any tips for starting from "scratch"?
What niche do you recommend to give more attention in the portfolio?
copy pasting what i told another guy in a different thread.

I really can't recommend freelancing anymore because the field is oversaturated. You will be competing with third worlders who charge less than half of your rates (unless you are the third worlder, of course), and industry pros with 20+ years of experience.
You can try your luck with online gigs like fiverr and upwork, shit like that. But you shouldn't settle for this long term.

Apply to design/art agencies. Then build a network from there.
Oh I'd like to add.
Consider startups if you can.

Work individually varies, but GENERALLY- they have much lower standards in both hiring and quality control.
Someone I mentored 4 years ago got lucky with a startup that found moderate success.
I'm from the third world, but it will really be difficult to compete with the Indians. Anyway, I can't consider an agency or a formal job for now, as I'm not graduated and I don't have my portfolio ready. I'll stick with it and try both. thx anon

Does anyone else pay attention to the layout, color scheme, design, etc. of the score boards they put up during sports events?
Picrel is the NFL on ESPN but this thread is for any sport.
yeah, it sucks to see nascar national series have worse overlay control than iracing broadcasters

the bubble/rounded look is dated at this point for nfl

>purposely make show hard too look at
>why is no one watching my show?????
A good example of why creative people actaully need producers and shit. You let some of them run wild and you get some lsd eye vomit for them to jack off to, when you asked for a watchable television program.

The #1 tool to make these kinds of designs.

So i just got myself an Ipad, want to use Procreate and all those other apps to sketch my logos/layouts, but was wondering if anyone know of other good apps for this thing, not lookin for anything in particular, just shit u might have found useful for your /gd/ work, or in general,
idk if youve seen the newest ios update but there’s a new app called freeform, its like an pr much infinite canvas that you can use the stylus with

plus its free and included

i find it good for idea generation with sketches simply due to the fact it isnt constrained to vertical scrolling
'apps' suck

It feels weird looking back on 2005 and how the Y2K aesthetic declined. Everybody likes to say that everything changed in 2007 or 9/11 but it was actually 2005. Something about the old soul of the Y2K/low poly/sprite remix/Jet set radio future/pop punk era just died that year and it was now the Frutiger Aero/realism/four loko/Gears/emo era (which was still fun, but different).

The year everything went bad in most people's minds is the year they turned 10. The exact moment everything actually went bad was March 2000 as the dot-com bubble peaked and we never really recovered.

what are some actually useful graphic design books /gd/?
4 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
that cover is fucking trash, and im a fucking minimalist grid huffer
same, made me think about investing in some quality design books
The only ones I've found useful are typography books, or the big reference books for specific applications. I learned the most on the job - and I've learned you either have an eye for it, or you don't, you can't read your way to being a designer. You can look up the technical stuff, but if you look at a page or a webpage or a logo, and have no ideas...books aren't your problem.
I'll stop there, because this is a forum that discusses more about illustration than actual graphic design. What's the point?
idk what video you guys are talking about but im interested, link?

can someone explain to me how can i recreate Windows Classic design?
Yes, open up paint.
This is more of a /g/ question innit?
Anyway Windowblinds has a good classic theme if you're willing to pay 20 bucks, you can also check out Simple Classic Theme
Assuming you mean actually designing something similar, and not just "how I make new thing look like old thing???":

Take into account what display hardware most people are using (circa 1995). Work within those constraints.
>640x480 workspace
>16-color palette
At such a low resolution you're going to want to maximize space usage, so avoid rounded corners. And with so few colors, simple hard bevels are your best option for conveying element borders/boundaries.
Neutral colors in UI elements are easy to look at for long periods, and won't clash (too much) with what limited customization users do have.

Looks very cute and wholesome!

However, something like this wouldn't cute it in a professional setting anymore it looks like something from the late 90s to early 2000s interent, like the old neo pets artwork.
Cute. Reminds me of old Flash animations.
I want to RAPE it. RAPE!
