Time for the thesis paper for my Bachelors and it's about Scandinavian Graphic Design (Yeah, suck it over-popularized Bauhaus, De Stijl, Swiss and American style). So help me out with my survey bros.

Which country are you from?

How many years of experience (studies, work, general interest etc.) in graphic design do you have?

How would you describe Scandinavian graphic design and how is this demonstrated in the style?

What comes to your mind when speaking of Scandinavian graphic design in regards to:
a) Colors?

b) Fonts?

Quite interesting, I'll bite.

>a) Colors?
faded but contrasty colors next to light browns or grey, mostly on a white background. Basic shapes with no outline or gradient.
Basically : flat design

>b) Fonts?
New and innovative, evolution from the standard romand characters. More personnality and a lot of variation with their accented characters.

>c) Layout?
Simple

>d) Motifs?
Diamonds, square, triangles.

Photoshop is giving me grief. I just finished making a map for a game and went to save it as a JPG, but it wanted to save it with a shit ton of empty white space added all around. I've been googling solutions for the past hour and a half with nothing but wasted time to show for it.

Pictured is the "layer edge" for the art board. None of the layers in the art board go out that far to the left or top.

Hi /gd/

My photoshop skills are very limited and was hoping someone might be able to help me edit an image of cletus.

What I was hoping to achieve was this image of cletus but instead of holding a pig, he is holding a basket of gherkins and so that it's easily identifiable, having a "Gherkin's" label on the basket.

I was hoping to remove the writing on the top and bottom of the image too. If anyone can help me achieve this, I would be very grateful.

For the top and bottom text, you can just erase what is outside the circle, using a big brush size to get rid of most of it, then zooming in and using a smaller brush for the smaller details

you will notice that some of the text is inside the circle (the "the" of the slack-jewed yokel), to remove this, select the layer and right-click>select pixels. Then use the color picker to select the color of the shirt, the use the paintbrush and paint over the text.

It's spec work that cheapens the industry.

With that being said, I participated in 99 design contests while in school and shortly after graduation. It was one of the few ways that I could get some experience working with clients and progressing my skills in corporate branding since most businesses weren't willing to hire a recent college grad without a job history. I made some money from the site but ultimately moved on to other things since the payout vs. the work put in sucked.

I know my way around photoshop enough to be able to do whatever comes to my mind, and I have enough sense of what looks shitty and what doesn't not to completely fuck up doing this.
I'm just wondering if there are some rules to follow or key fuck ups to avoid for menus.

Nobody likes crowded menus. The focus should be on either pictures of the food, or the text. Take HopCat's menu for example (a bar and burger joint in my city) [ Menu Link: http://www.underconsideration.com/artofthemenu/project_images/hopcat_lansing_PDF_03.gif]

They have no pictures, and the yellow one white (shockingly) isn't painful to read, then again it's a pale yellow, not a strong one. Their menu is simple, and of all the restaurants I've dined at, it was the best designed.

why would you ever want to anchor point arms to snap to a grid? do you hate smooth lines?

I do agree that CC is the worst thing adobe has ever done. Rolling updates are the worst, especially when you are paying a subscription fee and they don't really add useful features, but break others.

At least other industry leading software companies (protools, etc) allow customers to do Subscription based or buy their latest version for full price.

Unless you have a lot of money to burn, and space for the machine and storage for the cartridges, I would suggest you look into riso print services instead. They are too big, too expensive, and too labor intensive to just buy one and mess around with because you think the style is cute.

Owning a riso duplicator really only makes sense if you have commercial ambitions such as starting a print shop of your own or getting into the independent/self-publishing racket. If you do have commercial ambitions, make sure you are committed to it. I've seen a number of riso printshops...

It's the only way to do it cleanly.
I imagine you could increase the threshold value of the paintbucket to do the same.
I don't use gimp, so I'm not sure if it has that option.

Doing it in layers though allows you to keep everything organized, and is generally a better solution than just filling areas like you would in paint. If you intend to do detail work like highlights and shading.

No one else seems to think that the graphics for RoosterTeeths 'Million Dollars, But...' are tacky and awful. So like a good citizen I'm scouring the internet looking for someone to argue with me
