What's a good gift for a Graphic Designer's birthday? I want to get something nice but not over $10 to $15? I don't want to get something expensive or fancy because it's a coworker / friend and its not expected.
>>278245 This one doesn't look distressed as much as a scan with part of the image in the back showing. You can print something then scan the back of the page and use it as your background. The best way to make something look like something is to do what they did.
I'm currently applying for jobs as a Graphic Designer, but get a lot of rejections with the tenor "Nice Portfolio, but we hired someone with more Web Experience." despite having HTML and CSS knowledge.
To level that out i wanted to learn more Web Design to make Work for my portfolio. So i took on a small real project from a Guy in my Social Circle. He wants a small responsive onepager site for a small sidebusiness he is opening.
So I did a design in illustrator, learned some responsive webdesign, bootstrap, some jquery and built... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>280160 I came to this board for a quick visit and from an outsider's point of view I kind of like it. It feels off coming from Metallica and the white could've been something else to not make the head look lame
You need the balls to look reflective and the images of creatures optically distorted to imply reflection on the surface >>280053 or being inside of the ball >>280054. To simulate reflection you need a lot of specular highlights and gradients that realistically cover the shape of a ball. The creatures could be distorted using simple warp in PS.
1. The top of the letter "S" is above the cap line of the letters following it. 2. Cap line of the "T" is also above the rest of the letters following (but not as much as the "S". The bottom of the "T" is below the baseline of the letters after it. 3. Why are the "R and "A" connected but non of the other letters are such as the "A" and "N" or the "G" and "E"? 4. The top of the "T" is above the the capline of the rest of the letters in "THINGS".

It's optical correction. Curved caps generally rise above and below flat letters. "R" and "A" are kerned closer to even out the counterspace between letters, because the touching ends are sloped. The "G" has had the left edge flattened for the same reason.
How the fuck do I draw a smooth curve between two points? How do I make a semi-circular curve that smoothly intersects an angled line? I've been at this shit for days and can't figure it out and I can't even describe the problem well enough to Google it, fuck this is frustrating.
What would you say are the most helpful Photoshop tutorials? I'm not new to the program, just looking for more techniques that would come in handy for photos and graphics. Most of my knowledge comes from techniques that stuck out to me while following a random tutorial.
Using gradients, creating shadows, masking, adding noise, overlays, etc.
hi im making a website but i'm making it retina friendly. i've got the jist of it, make the image double the size, set it to be one size on all screens in the coding. my only problem is the fact that when i upload it to a image hosting site it is never retina quality thus not being able to be retina quality on the website. are there any image hosting sites which dont reduce the quality?
also i assume when im making artwork on my retina display mac i dont have to double the size as it is already doubled? - i assume this because whenever i paste an image into... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
if you have no experience with editing, i'd suggest using SVP for a bit before jumping into AE. AE is a pretty advanced program for beginners. or just look up a tutorial and practice some effects on stock footage and shit.
>>279872 You can either just fill it in in MS paint with the color picker tool. Or you can alternatively use the heal tool. A combination of both might yield good results as well. So heal away the word (like in pic related that I did on my phone) then use a semi opaque free form box with the same color as the red used in the sign. Use feathers edges so it doesn't look too artificial.
I'm currently making a video/demonstration but would really like to change the background of my video to something different.
Now I realise as there is no green screen there will be limitations. I was just wondering however, if it is possible to edit out the bricks/windows and change it to something different, just a picture.
Better still, is it possible, as I am the only thing moving in the video, to have some sort of motion tracking which follows me and replaces the WHOLE background but still leaves me visible.

Hi /gd/, I'm about fed up with my life. At 25 with an average factory job that pays well. I've been googling around checking wheather self learning graphic design is possible. Well is it? I'm thinking of attending a gd course offered locally. It mostly covers the basics of design and you get certified on using the Adobe Creative suite.
pic related. Bought em, been procrastinating forever to read em.
>>279332 bretty good poster (for you); -try using less "fisheye" effect on your headliners, weekdays & dates. -the arms are a bit weird too, i understand why you used the gradient but now they look like a ginger in august. -the floating head could be better -always test-print for colours and typography (kerning, line-spacing, font-size, stroke width etc) -the "rising sun" backdrop is a """bit""" cliché, color-palette is all over the place
