>>253501 3rd world workers deliver less value. /biz/-main that randomly stumbled upon this board but I've hired/paid all kinds of programmers, web designers, and gfx artists. Almost all 3rd world workers I've hired to do front end web design mockups or logos have delivered complete shit. You have to tell them exactly what you want, with examples to take inspiration from, but they still send back an ugly page filled with mismatching gradients and misaligned text. Not to mention the passive aggressive broken english when you tell them what revisions need to be made. The only thing they excel at over first world workers is getting you a ton of pages in a short amount of time.
So, if you want to make a living being located in a place with respectable living conditions, you're just going to have to be able to deliver consistent quality, and not be a pain in the ass to work with. A portfolio is key when finding work. You WILL have to work for free or start projects yourself before looking for freelance work. Nobody will hire someone without a portfolio that shows the value of their work.
>>253501 yes, but not easy. you have to build up a network and a good portfolio. you can build a good portfolio while in school or you do projects for absurt low cost. its not easy but it is very doable
>>253501 3rd worlders are cheaper but you have the advantages of:
english as a first language accessible (many clients don't know HOW to outsource or hire ppl from india) racism workingin ur favor easier to pick up luxury work easier for your client to relate to you and your aesthetic/your ability to understand their aesthetic etc
There are lots of reasons someone would hire a first world freelancer at premium rates, most of them come down to comfort and communication
since the squares are all evenly grid spaced, and have enough space inbetween them to fit a new set of squares, you can overlay a second copy of the same image, shift it by 1 square row & 1 square column, and set the blend mode to darken (so the darker color value of the two pictures apply over the white square)
the result is kinda shitty though, not perfect.
alternatively... open in python, use opencv or sumth ez, make some quick code that identifies squares, and sets their color value to be the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ok i'm a bit retard in Illustrator. Can you guys explain me why is this happening? Same "color" , same color mode etc.. This is happening in different documents in illustrator, I want my color like the one on the left
I have severe Anxiety Disorder (and depression) as well as ADD.
When I'm designing something at home, I'm very relaxed. However, when I had I job (I never got fired, I just fulfilled my timed contract) I could never get over the anxious thought of fucking up, especially when my boss was watching. Focusing is such a daunting task, overthinking becomes a common obstacle I face, and my attention to detail becomes shot.
The design world is tough as shit and doesn't have room for people like me. I take full responsibility, but I can't help it no... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
op, i had horrible panic attacks where i felt like i would die from a heart attack, and general axiety.
look into inositol powder (also known as vitamin b8). it's the only thing that's help me. it's a supplement readily available in health stores and online. buy the pure bulk powder, because for anxiety and panic you have to take around 12-16 grams of it, which is quite a lot and it's way too expensive to buy the capsules. the powder dissolves in water and is tasteless. it's very safe.
>You partner with a couple guys who have totally different but complementary skillsets to your own,
I'd recommend having a business major. The people who grease palms and are comfortable approaching strangers with your company's elevator pitches, and can competently step up to the mound to compensate for any social shortcoming you or your team might have, especially when networking with clients who might be leary about hiring a fresh company with not many notches on their six-gun, or don't understand the value you'd be bringing their company.
It might also behove you to have some people who excels at administrative work, to ensure that there's a paper trail, and are tasked to make sure clients pay the fees, and make sure the lights are on. Sure, you could do this yourself, but it'd free you up to concentrate on what you'd rather be doing (i.e. designing neat shit). (possibly the aforementioned business major)
Partner with a good printshop. Even if you're doing exclusively digital things, having good leave-behinds and printed collateral can help your branding- because sometimes a client might not be able to get online at a crucial moment, or is old-fashioned enough to not be impressed by your fancy big-city ivory-towered highfalutin "website." Sure, you could get these done through an online company, but having a local source can speed up the production time, and you can take advantage of their experience in producing such things. If you invest in something like teeshirts or retractable banners, this can also help solidify an identity for you and your team. But this can be expensive and potentially wasteful early on, so don't count your chickens too early on!
Finally, take advantage of your social networks. Dad might not need your work, but his employer might, or mom might know such and such who is in need of this and that. (replace family member with friends or friends of friends- you build these connections for a reason!)
I have a deadline for a 5 minute animation video with sound due by tomorrow morning. I'm pretty fucked although I don't know exactly how fucked I am because I've not really worked that much with edge animate but I want to at least get a 50% if possible. (meaning I want to turn 'something' in) Any and all help on how to get everything done by tonight would be very much appreciated.
>Telling the designer exactly what to design Go entirely fuck yourself, like take your entire body and put it up inside of your body and fuck yourself with it.
No shit a logo should be simple. And whatever imagery you think would represent your company, any solid designer will absolutely know better.
Don't waste your money or any of these fuckers time. You don't want a designer, you want somebody who knows Illustrator and will do whatever you want. Take the twenty bucks you were so generously "willing" to pay... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey guys, I'm a web developer coming over from /g/ for a little design advice. I have these 2 side by side tables and they are looking pretty basic. Anyone have any suggestions on how to make them look better? I'm pretty handy with css but my design eye is shit. Even a link to something similar that looks nice would be appreciated.
What is /gd/'s opinion about using Facebook to showcase art?
I have recently decided to get rid of Facebook for personal use, but have still considered using it to promote my art and handmade items as well as keep an open line of communication from past clients.
I'm already wary of returning to it, because I know Facebook has ridiculous terms and conditions. I'm worried if there are any repercussions to posting art on Facebook.
This guy is right in the hyperbolic sense but wrong in the practical sense.
You upload an image to facebook - it becomes their property. Thankfully that does not equate to them owning the intellectual property you generated - even if you upload a copy of that said image to facebook.
Make a vector - it's yours Upload picture of vector to facebook - it's theirs Sell the original vector - it's all yours

>>253909 lel, you're at uni because you want to learn shit, not because you can already do it. If the others can do the shiny shitty stuff, then it's those who waste their fucking time. dont be scared bro.
I personally think it's kinda shit. Considering it's been my favorite soft drink for a long time, this really flared up my autism. They could have just "modernized" the 2010 logo and it would have been perfect. The 2010 logo was calm, yet vibrant and playful, and its a throwback to the 70s logo to boot. It perfectly matched the drink itself. Pic related looks like some kind of bitter energy drink. Do they really think people are going to recognize the huge-ass... Comment too long.

Can anyone tell me how pic related is made and what the technique is called when you add an image on top of a video and can change the location of the image frame by frame. Also what programs are the best to do this with? Thanks
whats the problem now? the second pic is the poster i suppose. for me the information is placed well its just nothing else. the only element beside the information is the circle which is pretty random. maybe try to use symbols from the actual matthäus passion. the most obvious thing to do is take the cross or the thorncrown and place the information around it/in it.
