A shitty portfolio has adverse effects in this industry. And shit people skills.

If you're black, you might be expected to do hip hop/urban decay aesthetic work, and would probably surprise certain employers if your style is really minimum. That's happened before to the black designers I know. But they've never had a problem finding work.

Hi /gd/, I'm creating some type that looks like a silly straw for a client. So far, I'm pretty unhappy with what I'm making in Illustrator - I think realism would be best suited for the design. But I'm not sure how to achieve it.

I found this image, how do you think the designer achieved this effect? Any suggestions for how to do this greatly appreciated.

I may not be much of a designer, but if I had to guess, I'd say he custom did the angles in Illustrator, brought it into a 3d program like C4D, and converted them in a tube shape.
That makes sense. I guess I'll have to rough it.
I would draw it out in illustrator then bring it into photoshop and mess with transparencies and layer effects. You would probably have to paint in some of the lighting yourself though. I don't know how to C4D though : (

Do you think the person just used the pen tool to create the 3d effect or used one of the effects that Adobe provides? In case of effect, how would one go ahead and approach this?

The perspective seems a bit off, so I wouldn't say it's the Illustrator's 3D extrude effect alone. Could be, but I doubt it.

It could be a blend of two objects with Specified steps set to 9001, the first object being the size of the text and the other one being behind the first one with like 50% width and 40% height.

OR, it could be just a careful pen tool job. This is most likely.

The bulging is an illusion and comes from the

noob here

I have a svg in inkscape that is 30cm x 8cm. I need to print it at 300cm x 80cm.
I guess I should just give the svg to the print-guy and since it's his work he should do everything,
but since he's quite old and not very good at his job I thought I could just send him the correct
png or bmp and be done with it.

I can't figure out how to do this correctly. Of course if I change the dpi I get higher pixel resolution, but with the same cm dimensions.

Thank you anons

Set the required dimensions for the page, rescale the content and save as a pdf. Then give the pdf to the printer. All vectors should be saved correctly.
yeah that was my "last" resort, I had thought there was something related to the export.
Mostly because I'm afraid of fucking up something during the rescale (positions etc.)

I guess that "group-ing" every element in the page and then just mutiply by 10 its dimensions will do the trick?

its like a 30 second job. You really are a moron.

Hey /gd/, sorry if this is not the right board for this thread.
I'm curious about a style lots of lo-fi homemade-ish music releases' artwork have. It's what you can see here http://www.raccoo-oo-oon.org/np/index.html (scroll a bit until you get to the tapes) or in pic related. This sort of two-color, old photocopy style. Is it a printing style/technique? Why does the artwork have this very distinct old-school "style", regardless of the color choices? Any insight is appreciated.
6 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
it's both aesthetic choice and an economical one. there's a good chance lots of those covers are silk screened, which is a cheap way to do color prints (but limits you to one or two colors, since each layer needs to be hand printed)... while the technique is similar acros those tapes, I'd say the imagery has a lot of vareity and feels very contemporary. But the printing method is almost like an instagram filter, unifying them with the same effect. Lots of those images were composed on a computer and probably printed onto acetate for the silkscreen. also a lot...

Not really...it's work, you just gotta do it. Don't multitask.
Make a routine, schedule to work on different things at different times, a little each day.
Having a clear goal helps.

When I do work for clients, I honestly spend all day on it. I reach that state of zen where I cant stay away.

When I'm working on personal projects, I find it hard to have motivation. I'll start up the program, stare at it for a few minutes, then close it.
Of course I get those moments where I'm full of motivation and knock out an entire personal project in one sitting, but it's rare.

Im on my phone so I can't do real illustrations but if you play around with guides in upward motion it helps. Try to keep the rhythm ascending, not flat or descending.
Nice! I will try to do something illustrating movement! Good thinking!

That's when you know you've made it, when you intuitively judge your work objectively. Tunnel is vision fades with time.
I think it's mostly like that in the learning process. You can make a terrible design, but make a personal breakthrough while working on that design. It makes it feel better than it actually is.

Graphic designers are people who are too stupid and uneducated to be architects but wanted to go to uni and do something better than stacking shelves at woolworths.

They realise that pursuing art and making a living off it is too hard.

Another reason people get into my line of work is because they aren't talented enough to be tattoo artists.

Keep in mind that I am a graphic designer myself.
