Hey guys, need a little advise. I'm going to give a course on Photoshop next week. I do know how to use Photoshop and all but I really don't know how to explain basics or what do people want to know that is basic.

Could you guys help me with some pointers on what to teach them?

Thanks!

I'll take a look. But what I was mostly asking is what parts or things should I teach them? Layers, how to use tools? Don't know if it's TOO basic.

I'd highly recommend going over smart objects. I've worked with graphic designers more experienced than me who had no idea how to use smart objects for non-destructive editing or creating templates.

Layers, blending options, styles, adjustment layers, applying smart filters to smart objects. I think that's all golden info for working with files that may need adjusting later without having to start over.

Maybe even history snapshots and using artboards.

Do you have a sock fetish? I like all that you did here, though I'd make the top vertical part of the socks a little shorter, make the socks slightly wider, and I'd also put a half circle thing on where the heel would be, since socks usually have that, and it would match the toe part. Also, the two cameras that have a visible camera lens doesn't look like a lens, it shouldn't match the background of everything else, possibly put a black circle or something where there would be the camera lens. Besides that, it all looks impressive.

there isn't much I can immediately see - it has a strong central image and a very minimal and pleasing text title - its aligned well - maybe drop the bold text for BEACH or make all the text bold - i think the orange works best - a light modern palette would look nice - the border around the black and white logo looks forced - bleed the edges it looks nicer if you choose to go with that one. here's some colors i made

I think a bright blue background with a strong orange or red color for the character and the text background would work best - blue for the ocean...

I'd recommend you using a CSS Sprite file for all the little images in there. The website took a fairly long time to load on my PC.

The logo appears cropped when I change my window size, so try to reduce its size.

The top area (that one that slides down when I scroll through the website) is way too large and covers almost half of my screen. Also, since I'm on a netbook, the sub-menu under the green bar looks broken (pic related).

I really like the logo, but the "wyt" part on "swytch"...

It's been a while since I've done any graphic design shit for fun /gd/.
I found an After Burner song done by a japanese band named SST Band and decided that it'd be fun to play around with the old After Burner logo and did just that.
I invite everyone else to revisit old games and put your spin on those dusty old logos and have some fun.
I really enjoyed doing this despite struggling to keep my eyes open so I'll probably be updating this thread (unless I totally forget this happened by the time I wake up).

Newbie here,

Could someone explain to me the best solution for implementing graphics into a web page?

For example icons next to paragraphs of text, or designs in the background of a website.

Would you use vector graphics? Or JPEGs with low file sizes?
6 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

>>252715
SVG if the art is vector, otherwise 72dpi png for flat graphic stuff and 72dpi jpeg for photos/detailed illustration

SVG will always look the nicest if you have vector options since it scales. 72dpi png and jpeg look good on most screens except retina ones so 144dpi might be ok if you care about sharpness and don't have a ton of images for your user to download/view.

many ways to optimize the file sizes for web graphics as well, varies by file type usually.

It's too detailed, especially for a tech startup.

You need to look to google image search 'flat logo design' for a start and work on a more symbolic and unique approach to your logo- even check out some other bigger time agencies in some popular countries around the world - get a taste of what's going on right now for inspiration.

It will help to create a concept for your brand - start with why you are better then other IT companies, and if you can't think of any then you need to re-model your business.

Making this for my portfolio. I got stuck with this name and was told that the logo could not contain food or any resemblance of food.

Any thoughts?

OP here: I forgot to impart my own critique. The S at the end seems off. The font used for Feast could be different ( I went with a "ye old" look ) and just white may be a boring choice.

Also, the crystal... I dunno, the more the I see it the more I like it.
>>
Heh, I assumed it was a reference to Emerald City
>>
>>252522

You asked for it...

"the" is riding too high
"feast" and the "s" have an uncomfortable negative space relationship.
Logo looks OK but cannot be represented in 1 color effectively.
Kerning on "feast" is super tight and bad.
Logo currently relies on a blue BG, with a non-color BG (white) the copy would be black or the darker green, what does it look like?
You posted a small image but even with a limited view the color transitions in the logo look inconsistent in width.

You have a good foundation, work upwards from it.
