What are you working on, /gd/?
>>441091I like this. This is what I'm working on.
>>441098What did you use to make this?
>>441091materials (flyers, brochures, and business cards) for a SPED department.Maybe you guys can enroll.
>>441092Is that supposed to be a starfish?My first instinct when I saw it was that it looked too much like a hooded Klansman playing golf instead, but maybe it's just me being /pol/tarded here.
>>441102Why are you doing page layout in Photoshop?Oh, wait, it's 4chan.
>>441105I'm not finalizing the layout.I was really only experimenting with the colors. You can see on the layer tab there are hidden layers that I was messing around with.
>>441092I dig it! especially the colored version. the font choice is also very fitting. reminds me of the pan am logo.here are some minor ideas on what could be tweaked a bit. not saying any of my (very slight) changes are definite improvements. but maybe there is an adjustment or two that you enjoy. I tried enhancing the impression of movement, but on the other hand comparing these two I am not even sure that is such a good thing.
>>441105what would you use? you can literally do anything in photoshop
>>441186I'd use InDesign. Because using a page layout app for page layout is what you do, dummy. I'd explain why it's important, but it's obvious you're not a designer, and never will be one. So don't sweat it, NEET.
>>441181love number 5really brought this hotel from wacky 90s damp carpet smelling to the modern age
Doing multimedia graphic design / previs stuff. It's more gd related than ic or 3 since it's mixed media and composition oriented.
Made this to show a friend of mine how I'd approach his design.
>>441099>What did you use to make this?Made the logo on InkscapeMade the document on Affinity PublisherMockups with smartmockups's free designs.>>441218My ego and self-worth has been vindicated :-)>>441282What are you making them for?
I'm trying to make the fastman material more accessable
>>441302>What are you making them for?comicbooks, ads. But when I get a better PC, since the workflow is camera oriented, animations and vids too.
I made this design just for fun. I work at a railcar repair facility. My company is going to make stickers out of it for everybody to wear on their hard hats.
I have a vinyl decal cutting machine at work which can cut out this design. The software I used is called Graphtec Studio.
The primary reference I used was this artwork created by @eskae545
>>441282some more shiet.
>>441092lol is this Death coming for old golfers?
>>441098bro, do you even alignment?
>>441191indesign is really more a large scale page style application, not really a design tool
>>441102this is a rather naive use of a gridalso, ladnscape is cool, but youve put the tiny icons in the center
Attempting to rebrand this local football/soccer team.
>>441442depends? what are your arguments for them to go for that change?
>>441444The current one is a copied and pasted stock photo. They were probably scammed by some dumb nigger designer.Mine is symmetrical, modular and has character(doesn't look like a yawning lion and my lion is aggressive). It's already circular thus already works as a badge unlike the previous one that require circles and text, allowing it to be used more wherever.Introducing more shades of color to the team's identity and codifying black(which has been in use by Simba for a while) to the club's identity.
how would you design a bowling alley with real life pictures? what do you add or say? fuck I have 0 creativity in this regard
>>441447i think they can fuck you over if they find out that you said nigger on this site
>>441535>if they find out that you said nigger on this siteWhile that may be true, I'm not really sure if companies really care that much to check if their logo gets uploaded to a Swiss letterset embellishing forum, much less the designers who post on it.If it were something like say, designing for Arsenal, I might understand, but "Simba Sports Club"? Really?
made this the other day
>>441586Looks fresh as hell anon.
been working on dis ayy lmao comic.Left is the original render. Middle is the color corrected one for print.
>>441588Also made all of these stickers for it. Tonnes more in the folder.
>>441586very nice anon, where could I get a paper texture like that?
>>441606I think this is the pack I got it from https://creativemarket.com/indieground/6532520-Paper-Textures#fullscreen
>>441104They don't call it The Masters Tournament for nothing.
>>441191LMAO, dumb faggot thinks no graphic design was possible before computers.
>>441407super cute and nostalgic good job anon!
>>441588>>441589these are delicious
>>441627Literally irrelevant. You're too dumb to be a designer. Probably a worthless poo, anyway.
>>441634So, this is what /gd/ considers "delicious"? Interesting.amyrm0
I wanted to try and design some covers for books that i liked. Can you give some advice?
>>441866Do a full jacket so it doesn't look like you're just working on a poster. Designing the spine and flaps is comfy.
>>441408I thought it was a dorito chip glorifying how golfers outside the pro tours are fat people
I'm getting into graphic design and logo design, just wanted to ask: Do I really need to sketch shit in order to design a logo? Why is that common practice and not just doing it all on the computer with Illustrator? What are the benefits of doing it on pen and paper?
>>441191>I'd use InDesignkek, lmao even
>>441586That's freaking cool dude, did you illustrate or was it all photoshop? I'm interested
>>441866use higher quality images - there are free databases like pixaby that you can use
>>441896I do that lol. Although I've also had colleagues who didn't so it's not something you have to do.It's just comfier for me to draw something first before I trace it into a vector. It's much more fluid to turn a figure I'm currently imaging with a pencil over a computer input. But do whatever works for you.
>>441900Thanks, honestly computer is better for me but if that's not available I'll use pen and paper, thing is I can't draw for shit so it just feels so uncomfortable to me
>>441897What's wrong with inDesign?
>>441902Don't get me wrong, it's great for editorial design and I prefer working with it over Illustrator for text-heavy designs, it really is simply better for that, but anything involving "elements" rather than text bodies is something I'd rather handle with vectors in Illustrator. Illustrator even comes with alignment focused tools like guides, bleed, and indesign-like column-row divisions in a single click. Having all three programs open and switching to the best one for the job is the way I work and saves me time and wasted effort that would be spent trying to do something in IDD that I'd shit out in 5 seconds using AI
>>441904wtf it really makes no sense to me why you would even mention this.nobody ever created a logo in indesign.
>>441898thanks anon. I just use photoshop
>>441907is your attention span 2 replies long you drooling moron? this retard really out here trying to line up a shitty UI in photoshop instead of just using AI which is made for that. Get thrown under of a mobility scooter.
>>441282>>441406>>441407mm as in you draw some of these and the others are made digitally or are there more methods involved?
>>441930It's all just digital multimedia, so like, crappy low res sprites, mspaint drawings composited in blender, or doodles with a computer mouse or laptop trackpad etc.
>>441930Oh, forgot, the bracelets were photos somebody sent me, for the last pic, and the audio equipment was photographs I took years ago. the little smiley faces and cellphones and shit for those were bought off of one of those deviantart 'Instagram KPOP' png packs.
Heavy machinery web design GFX
Alternate color scheme
>>441938>>441937Logo looks weird but if you got paid then who cares
>>441960>merry xmac!it looks weird because he vertically stretched its proportions.
Which one's best?
>>442061This. Because readability.
>>441911i used something using this as inspo when we had that one rate your work thread. i learned a lot but it's not as cool as yours
>>442062I like this one since it has a clearer negative image, but I guess it depends on the color of the speakers
>>442071The font on the top right isn't so legible. CHARLED LECURC
>>442061>>442062>>442063>>442065due to the light rim around the subjects in the photographs, the white versions are definitely better. personally I like the black and white version the most, since it appears most tidy of them all. but I think that for reasons of wanting to draw attention to the poster actually the colored version (white) is best.overall decent posters. tho you should work more on readability. you are lacking a higher sense of structure, which makes reading and understanding its contents unneccessarily tedious.
I like drawing cartoon girls on Illustrator for fun, and with this one I tried to bring that "Adventure Quest" vibe to it.Any criticism is more than welcome!
>>441407>>441588>>441589'ery nice anon, keep going
>>441181Very nice broski, all of them are strong
>>441191You're supposed to use Illustrator you retard
>>441582I would perhaps change the line weights on the lion's snout and mane so that the snout is more emphasized and the mane less so. As it is, the lion's face doesn't read too well, it took me a moment to tell it wasn't a floral pattern.
>>441586Stylish as fuck, make some more of these
>>441091im new to this and im trying to learn how to make AR PMAG15 Engraving TemplatesI know a guy who does lasering stuff, but he said he'll do me a deal if i do the work for him.
They picked Alternative 2. I hate working for people.
>>441091First year of graphic design, started a month ago and this is my first project how is it looking bros? Objective was simply to use the tools they've been teaching us but I got carried away
>>443335beautiful though you could use more of color composition but otherwise it looks pretty good for a first workgood job anon!!
>>441442Its kind of hard to figure out what's going on in the logo. Once you figure it out it looks great but it takes some time. The bigger the logo, the harder it will be to see, i think.
>>443702For once, it looks you CAN'T make the logo bigger.
I'm trying to make an art deco miku but I have literally no clue how; even finding references for where to start is a bit of an issue. any advice would be appreciated
How to achieve this kind of effect?
How do you guys come up with your designs, specially for posters? Do you sketch thumbs with pen and pencil beforehand or do you just copy and paste shit around and go with trial and error until it looks good?
>>443940I sketch first.
>>443941Sketch, scan, photoshop, then vector.
>>443940depends on what the goal is.different settings and prerequisites do indeed inform the approach.also (and to be very frank) my brain works differently in these instances. so my route is also depending on how I feel, or what mental mode (mood?) from experience I consider more productive in the individual case.but to give a more concrete answer as you would expect it; overall it is primarily digital sketching for me that directly ties into the following digital workflows. I am much quicker exploring ideas in ps than I am on paper. allthough admittedly also not equally as sharp. either way I rarely end up with something that contains more of the original idea than the rough concept.
I need to make a cannabis related logo showing the golden gate bridge and LA city/skyline. It'll say "Bay to LA" in it. They want a fucking QR code in it too, wtf do I do bros.
>>444056you make it you tard
What is this shit called
Thingie i did for a college proyect where we had to design for a fictional product
working on digital prints to sell on etsy. new to everything digital and bought a plan to Midjourney and its been so fun. hoping to make my first sale in the next 3 months which is what i read the average time would be.
give me your honest opinion do i have potential
How do I make a font? Like the mechanics of it, how do I take my littler letter fellas and get them into a useable Truetype/Opentype file
how the fuck do you do this?
>>444481I'm thinking of paying for it too. How do you find it.
>>443061Who cares if the client likes it and you're getting paid? How much did you get paid to do 5 minutes of work to add 1 aspect to the design. You're living life on easy mode if this is even a problem to you let alone more than a passing annoyance
>>444555You have the potential to become 41%
>>443061Dude you are not good at graphic design
Hi, absolute noob question hereHow can I make a line with 3 segments like the top and turn it into the bottom? I'm using Photoshop
>>444475I also designed a fictional product somewhat recently.
Back into creating stuff after 5 months of pause
>>442882This is true, which is also why I make spreadsheets in PowerPoint and write essays in Excel
>>444865This one caught my eye at a distance.>>444866>>444867These two not so much, though Variation B looks more visually interesting once I looked at it a little more.
>>444476cute logo, y's descender is a bit awkward. nice mockup too, the shadow behind it doesn't really fit or work with the layering of the background.>>444555bit of a mess>>444665this one's fine too, nice subtle texture. something about the text bothers me>>444865>>444866>>444888blue one is best, but as anon above said, maybe the red one would work even better with slight color adjustments.another party promo graphic, love making these desu
>>441301Looks super cool
>>441191InDesign's ideal for brochures, books, magazines, etc. Complicated or large layouts..Laying out a postcard that's going to have two lines of text and some contact info in InDesign is just silly. Especially when you're, as OP said, playing with colors, in other words, doing image editing.
>>442061B&W striped background to look like mugshots. kek
>>444583this is cool can Illustrator do this?
hello, I wanted to share my unusual hobby, it deals with restoring old photos. Recently, I even set up an instagram to keep it from getting dusty on my hard drive... What do you think, brothers?https://www.instagram.com/blackworldincolor/
>>441098Needs more diversity.
