Please do your best in defeating this ugly fucking art style, PLEASE. I don't know why it's so popular.

Zuccbook Alegria is the name you are looking for.

Cheap, fast, easy to make and bullshit inclusion is the reason.

To everyone who complains about this art style: what would you rather have in place that would be just as effective?
>>
>>429171
Anything other than this disgusting facebook algeria globohomo-font or whatever it is called. It's just overdone not a very good style. It lacks soul. The hands and feet are out of proportion and the limbs are too noodle-like.
>>
>>429173
>It lacks soul.
it's literally corporate/commercial illustration.
it would be disingenuous if it did have soul.

Well what the hell is soul then? To me, something soulless is something very rigid and cold. These have varying shapes and sizes which mirror the differences in people, which would be "soulful" by definition, no?

It's not the art style that's the problem, it's the way it's usually used.

flat design is just lazy though. so many designers these days are lazy fucks. its really killing the art form.
>>
>>429141
make that 7

>>429240
Then there it is, it's the people involved doing things the general public finds disingenuous, basically guns don't kill people, people kill guns, but everyone here treats this art style like it's the gun

Just found this place a couple weeks ago, make that 8.

If I were a nigger or a pajeet and I saw this shit I would feel more triggered than seeing the SHEEEEEE meme.

While I understand that this style of art looks very basic and lazy ( which it is ) I think the aesthetics are nice so the result isn't that bad. But what to I know.

Please do not nuke Alegria from the moon until I at least make some progress with my ironical Alegria-themed game. Otherwise by the time it comes together it won't be relevant anymore. Thank you.

maybe hes not a designer, maybe you forgot someone can hate something and not having the duty of come up with something better, maybe you are a retard and you will not understand my point, idk.

You don't like it because it targets 30-50 years old white liberals who live in Cali

If I were tasked to make a visual for a Home Depot magazine, that style surely wouldn't belong in it. But if I'm paid to do a shitty visual for a shitty health blog article I might as well take the easy money and draw that shit.
>>
>>429126
This artstyle is going out of style tho even in the globohomo corpo circles. Every graphic designer """expert""" say that these have become overused and out of trend.
Nowadays 3D stuff or actual images are getting more popular

ok i know ***everyone*** likes to hate on the big tech flat color illustration and modernism logos, but nobody seems to ask... what would YOU like instead?

i'm not a huge fan of either, but i think ppl are being a little hyperbolic in their distaste for it. i also see a lot of people wanting a return to early 2000s 3d logos, and i can obviously tell theyre just blinded by nostalgia b/c they don't realize how corny it would look

Because I get paid to do it. Every client says "I wanna stand out.... no wait I'm scared make it look exactly like my direct competitor. Give me generic art style and make my logo a white vector shape inside a colored box, but make sure the box is blue, because I read that blue = trust"

It strikes me as exaggerated adulthood (small head big legs) but drawn in a childish school textbook illustration style. that's what disgusts me besides the woke stuff

this is what commie do to undermine the values that built the west

ugly is now considered beautiful
beauty is now considered ugly

being competent is opressive
being athletic is bad ('fatphobic')


this is meant to destroy the west

he will post some costumbrist bullshit with relation to some whitie bullshit, that and deviantart bullshit badly ripped off from the costumbrist crap. And i tell you i fucking hate flat design but i know conservatards are this predictable.

Conservative would be some type of realism. No noodle limbs, realistic proportions, detailed bodies. Trumpian would be that but somehow loud and tacky.

>An economic ideology that died 30 years ago is to blame for an artstyle created 10 years ago by the same people who spent decades attacking said ideology.
I know because it was gently told to me by this one guy from the very faction I hate.

it's not even about the deformed humens pastel vomit style, for example
https://trendlist.org/
like it or not, experimental and deconstructive design and compositions happen to be "globohomo" and veeery bourgeois.
the design work may appear "intelligent", but overall message remains the same "take vacceen, rapefugees welcome, females should trample their femininity, gay anal marriage good etc."
it's sad that conservative/reactionary critics aren't even aware of these things because they don't do contemporary design or art a whole lot...

you are so ignorant and a fucking faggot, won't even bother arguing why you are so wrong and misinformed, instead I will tell you to kill yourself
>>
>>433528
it all boils down to marrying the biomass of consumer with the product (as desire fulfillment) and gradually reducing anything in between (other traditions, loyalties, personal agency) to nothing. 95% people who make "that" design shit are generally in agreement with ways to accomplish it (with excuse to save the planet, tolerance, antiracism or whatever) and progressivism has only one direction - forward. you will never see reactionary sentiment expressed this way because reactionaries aren't "on" these cool visual trends until they are blatantly obvious in mainstream, they are rarely in 'new media' circles, they are somewhere outside. but the most "out there" weird editorial design will be nothing but formal propaganda vehicle for expressing of institutionalized resent towards blue collar working class and visions how to put them in pods for their own good. everything i say although admitelly half-jokingly is true and it will only be more obvious in upcoming years.
