it's mostly texturing and/or using grungy brushes. never tried it myself, but machine wash is a pretty popular PS plug-in for doing this. https://www.misterretro.com/filters/machine-wash-deluxe/wash-effects

They're not paying by the pixel or for how much you changed their old logo, they're paying you to solve business problems. Every single one of these redesigns wasn't just a new or altered logo, it was a branding exercise that effected every visual aspect of their company and how it is perceived by their customers and potential customers. I'm not saying every rebrand is worth the money paid but saying "any... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
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.
It's not even real Pop-Art. It's more like the shitty iPhoto Filter called Pop Art, does not even have a real stencil of the person but a botched one. And the size of the person is off as well. OP, did you use iPhoto and think it would be a good idea?
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 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 : (
Looking for feedback and suggestions on an 80s style logo I'm working on. I think I have some fairly authentic looking text, but I'm unsure what sort of thing should go behind it to bring it all together. I know many 80s logos used simplistic shapes and so on, but somehow that makes it even trickier for me to decide.
How does a good Flyer look, to be an effective promotion tool? I have to design a some Flyer promoting a scientific convention aimed at students and phDs and frankly said, I've never done this before. I need some inspiration.
>>277273 Also for your information, I'm just a student myself, I won't get any revenue out of it. It's entirely voluntary. I would be therefore really thankfull for any hints or tips in how to make an scientific event as appealing as possible.
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.
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.
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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
how do you guys stay motivated when working at home? I love graphic design but can't stay motivated to work on my portfolio. Then when I sit down and work on it I get overwhelmed and feel like I can't multitask projects.
I know its like a subjective question but do you guys have any strategies that can keep me on track?
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.
Having a fire under your ass really helps you stay motivated. Or... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

You have to really suck before you get really good. ..Or you're just good from the start.
When I was younger and a bit more immature (like 13 or so) I used to think things I did was the bees knees. Later on when I got more mature, I became more self criticizing, so my teen self loathing and angst helped me notice how terrible I was.
Now, I'm not the best at whatever I do, but I know that. I have a good sense of style, and the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi guys, I know all the tools of Adobe Illustrator and I have watched over 75+ tutorials. But the problem is that I can't draw, not even for a bit. I prefer flat design (pic related). Tips and useful resources are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
I need an artist's eye. Tell me which looks nicer. Making a education japanese game and players turn over flash cards. I'm designing how the back more detailed part of them should look.

new design http://i.imgur.com/Ow4D9iR.png
I'm not feeling the new design and feel like there could be better positioning, font size, or something. I got some critique and realize that the first design is better. If that's the case, how could I make it feel better in terms of what I was going for in the new... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
