what are the letters? PUKU?wh is the second U like a J? why do you have BIG hanzi? how is that related?
i just saw the webaddress, the 大 is an A? makes no sense. perhaps few poles know chinese or japanese, but it is weird to me.
on a design sense, the cross bar of the 大 feels unbalanced lower than the top of the P, i don't like that.

The first one is a much stronger concept. The logotype is versatile and unique. I do like the second one but I would consider not showing them options as clients tend to go with the weakest one.

Thanks fellas. I am trying to make it very on the nose. Although, I am not sure what to do about the empty space at the bottom of the red arrow. Any suggestions? I might flip it and place it on the right. This would let me make CONTROL a little bigger and also curve down the arrow.
But I might also just keep it how it is and draw some accent lines on it haha

clean up the cutout of the chad and then add a white stroke around it.
I would also either fill the top space completely with the text, or bring the headphones icon up to fill in the space on the top right corner.
then I'd put icons of what apps people can listen on down in the gray area

Take an image in Photoshop. The higher the resolution the better.

Image/Mode/Greyscale.
- adjust contrast here - you want a lot of it.

Image/Mode/Bitmap
-leave the resolution alone
-choose "Halftone screen"

In the next dialog
- For frequency, use a small number, like 2 LPI
- Set Angle for 0 for horizontal lines
- choose "Line"

Done.

Darker = thicker lines - thus the contrast adjust. You might have to try it a couple times to get the exact look you want.

Next, convert the file back to RGB. Now you can use the image as an overlay, and set it to something like Darken or Screen to use the white in the image as transparency, or magic wand/Select Similar all the white out.

You can do a cool "crosshatching" effect by making a round gradient from black to white, and applying this to it. Al you have to do is vary the size of the source image and the line frequency to add more lines, or make fewer. You can use any shape, really, and play with the gradient, or use Gaussian Bur.

I added the strokes, move the headphone into top right, and add Spotify logo in bottom left. My problem is that I can't make smooth cutout of the Chad, let alone make the smooth strokes.
>>
>>410457
Do you have the selection of the chad saved?
>>
>>410457
How are you cutting the image out? If you're not using a layer mask - that's what you need to learn.
>>
>>410459
I'm not sure I saved that
>>410461
Magic wand tool. Sometimes when I'm too lazy, I just upload it into background remover website
>>
>>410468
You're doing it wrong. Learn to use layer masks. It's not hard.

Also, when you use the magic wand, or make any selection, you can turn it into a layer mask by clicking on the layer mask icon on the layers palette.

Looks a lot better!
The only thing I can think of (aside from a cleaner cut out of Chad), is to make the spotify logo bigger to take up more of the space; Similar to what you did with the headphones.

You seem to have the basic layout done well though.
headphones show its an audio format, along with spotify, chad is hosting this, as he is shown on the cover, and we know it is something about weight lifting, as the picture in the background indicates. with the background and the person in the foreground being able to be swapped out, you could easily make a podcast cover starring Chad's wife about cardio or something. Nice work!
Like >>410478 >>410461 said, use how to use layer masks, I like to use pen tool and the paths window alongside a layer mask. I have full control over what i want and dont want to be seen.
Keep it up!

Not the guy who made it, but "Add Noise" filter. Make a file at the dimensions you need, make it greyscale, fill it with 50% grey, then apply Add Noise, and save it. Then import it into your project, and add a layer mask for the fade, and use a layer mode like Overlay or Screen. I have a folder of noise files, I used them all the time, I use a 2% noise layer to blend edits into a photo that has film grain.

It's too busy. Drop 1/4 of the content, let the elements breathe - it's called 'white space", you need some. Also, consider not making the whole thing a grid.

Adding on - you're linking to social media accounts. That's the point of this. You just need a taste to get them interested, and then go to your instagram or whatever, where you can show the range of your work. You're trying to do too much in too small of a space. Put a couple of your best items on it, and make your links much, much bigger.

Think about it. If Levis has a billboard ad, do they put everything they sell on it?

Alright, learnt how to use layer mask from the link above and other sources.
I tried my best to make the smoothest cut with layer mask, but I can't. Regardless the fact that layer mask gave me a freedom to select which part I want to cut or not. The stroke still not align perfectly with the Chad's body. There's still a sharp strokes that would ruin the aesthetic.

And I begin to think that layer mask is just a meme. What should I do?

Not a meme. Layer masks are used by all professionals to mask out objects, you're just learning.

One thing to play with, is to smooth out the mask. If you click on the mask on the layer, you can edit it - use blur, painting tools, etc.
You can feather the layer mask, as well: Or click on Q, and drop into quick mask mode, and edit the mask there.

https://www.photoshopessentials.com/basics/photoshop-layer-masks-advanced-tips-and-tricks/

Or, do the same, by control-clicking on the layer mask, which will convert the mask into a selection. Then use Select/Modify and either Smooth or Feather to clean up the edges of the selection, then re-apply that to the layer mask.

Or, if you want even more accuracy, with the selection from the quick mask, go to the Paths palette and from the pull down menu, choose "create working path", and now you have a vector path to clean it up with. (Even export the paths to illustrator for complex objects) Double click the working path on the palette to a named path, and now you can edit it all you want - when you have it how you want, choose "Make selection" from the Paths dropdown menu, and it will make a selection, which you can then apply to the image. This is a good way to save selections without applying them.

Masking is practically an art form of it's own, I've been doing it for years. It's going to take effort to learn, so don't just dismiss it as a meme when you've barely dipped your toes into the water.

Technically the second thing I’ve ever made in Photoshop.

Is the sky supposed to be the night sky?

You've got sone severe texture streching in the hills back there. Genereally, the hills lack detail.

And if that is supposed to be water, you should look for a better solution than a noise texture with distortion turned up. Doesn't look liquid.

Some more exciting and localized lighting could save this entire thing, because the scene itself is very interesting looking, and the shapes are a very cool idea.

Good on you for learning. Definitely not bad for two weeks in. Keep it up, proud of you!

It’s missing the x factor, maybe just the font choice or needs a little bit of that forum signature energy
>>
>>412247
>>412236
These are really interesting and could be quite a hit the mark except for the fonts, if you just wrote them out by hand (obviously can use stock fonts for reference) and gave them their unique direction and weights (like the purple girls hair could use some bending)
I would then use a slight 3D pop out and shadows/glows (posterized if necessary)
Otherwise I hope you keep progressing particularly in achieving greater perspective to your flat subject style (more eye popping perhaps with gentle embossing) giving the patterns a depth and space, transcending the mere cutout style Which don’t get me wrong has quaint appeal and lands just fine on some of these (perhaps worst of all on the blue skinned girl)

Black on that dark a value of blue is very hard to read.

Use a different body font. I don't care if you're just being contrarian not using a serif face, or clueless about typesetting, but the font you chose is hard to read. At minimum kern it out a bit.
There's a lot of mistakes here, like having bleeding text (BIG no-no in magazine printing), or splitting the headline across the binding, where it will be hard to read, and the whatever it is you're trying to do with the offset stacked boxes on the lower left hand side, that has nothing to do with the layout.

I mean, it looks like what it is, a stab at page layout from someone with no experience in it. If I were hiring someone for page layout, you'd be cut from the list immediately.
Also, why are you designing a magazine? It's an almost dead medium.

You're coloring inside the lines. It's boring. Let the text break the borders.

The color scheme doesn't make sense for the photo. Color-picking his shirt would be better.

If your goal is to convey stability, strength and masculinity, I'd reconsider the diagonal text.

Why would I want my logo on a diagonal? Besides, something like this should be made after you know what the logo looks like so you don't do something stupid that doesn't match the brand's style.

>>

thank you! for the metal:

you make a frame (shape). Then you add a gradient texture, make it a smart object and then clipping mask

desaturate the gradient texture and add regular gausian noise to it. Then go to filter galery and add horizontal noise (this is for brushed effect)

For the "borders" (idk the proper term) you double click the metallic gradient, add a stroke. Select screen mode and gradient then play with the settings, scale and angle.

Thats it you got you brushed metallic frame

1. The headlines is too long and not clever enough
2.The background makes the shoes look iike another boring rock (mountains are not the best symbol for nature, rather for toils and achievements)
3. Try to fit the text into the picture in an organic way. Right now it's just a boulder.
4. The price tag shouldn't be green if the rest of the image is gray-brown. You can also put it in the middle if you want to.
5. The Merrel logo can stay there but if you can change it I would go with just the name in white. The red just kind of rapes the picture.

Anyway, those are just my thoughts

Great work again, you got a behance or ig?

You have good ideas op but you do not have readability, which demands a sort of energetic momentum to your type. My guess is you don’t iterate nearly enough or just to a stubbornly limited extent.

The IT'S looks like Blockland.

Soul
The texture stretching in the hills makes it evoke an old 3d look, further adding to the soulfulness.

i like this and hate this at the same time
the word mark is ok, i would invest more time in it
packaging design is good but cheesy
the mascot just looks cheap. not bad, just not professional.

>>409827

youre a good illustrator, i like your work
you definitely don't miss appropriateness, but for logos you need to be more refined, something that is instantly recognisable. work with simpler, well defined and characterised basic shapes. thicken your brush strokes. anticipate any type of use accordingly. a logo is timeless.
