Is it possible to make a living as a graphic designer using nothing but open source software ?

Probably, but you're going to be stuck taking jobs on Craigslist or working at some shitty Chinese decal shop that uses Corel Draw.

Respectable agencies and companies use the Adobe Suite, either find a way to deal with it or be happy accepting third-rate jobs.

Depends on what you mean. You can make a living with almost anything provided you're willing to try hard enough.

That being said, Adobe is the industry standard and it is what everyone expects you to use.

File associations, compatibility, and for things like raster and vector applications you may be able to get by with Inkscape, Xara, or GIMPin' it.

But the second a client asks you to lay out a large publication, and you DON'T use Indesign, they are going to know. Especially if they intend to go to press with an actual packaged file and you...

Hi /gd/. So I'm looking to start a small graphic design bureau; I have the technical skills to do logos, banners, etc. but need some basic help on which formats, sizes, etc. you normally send out when a task is done..

Also what are some aesthetically visionary marketing bureaus out there right now?

from the sound of it, you have a lot more to learn than just formats and sizes... being able to create logos is one thing, running a business is another.

Thanks for the advice. I do study business administration on my third year and can do a little bit more than creating a logo.

If you know anything about standard formats, sizes, what is expecting, etc. that would be great. If not I don't see why you would spend time replying

on what exactly?

Good evening,

I'm looking for some help on those kind of logo that you see around lately on merchandising.

Anyone can tell who those are made? There aren't really much tutorials on that, so that's why I'm asking.

Just some general questions:
With which font do i start of?
Which one is the most suitable for those 60/70s styled logos?
Which tool in illustrator are the ones I have to use?

Thanks in advance

It's a pretty simple two-step process, OP. First you open the image in Photoshop - none of that Paint.NET shit here, it has to be Photoshop. Then, you take your keyboard and jam the corner of it into your eye socket until you get the desired effect.

Keep trying, it might take a while.

Too much going on and the font is stretched. You could maybe add a single building silhouette in the moon, make the wolf smaller then add the text beside the graphic or below.

You have blank space left so try playing more and rearrange the elements.
