Why does every design have to be flat nowadays? Is adding a little bit of detail really so bad?

I'm glad that gradients are gone. It also makes it easier for beginners to create professional looking logos so that's a plus.
Gradients are not gone
Get out of google once in a while
At least glossy shitty icons/logos are gone

are gimp inkscape and scribus good enough for professional work?

actually you can do everything using word/excel/paint.
now go make money from open source softs
oh you
yes, but you have to expect to work twice as hard for the same results (and hence probably same amount of money) as your peers. Especially inkscape makes you take a huge productivity hit over illustrator, which is more streamlined, powerful and faster in almost every regard.

Also, you wouldn't use GIMP, you would use krita.

So, I've got a job interview tomorrow for a part-time frontend developer job, and I have no clue as for what to do.

Any of you got some fantastic tips I can take with me? I'm really nervous and been unemployed for so long - I need this!

Help me /GD/, you're my only hope.
(Bad Star-Wars reference... Sorry.)

- Be prepared to talk about your work and what you can do. Have some examples ready.

- Project a positive attitude from the moment you walk in the door. Be friendly, smile, show enthusiasm whenever someone or something new is introduced to you and ask questions.

- Have a few "weaknesses" in your mind in case they ask but find a way to spin them into positives. i.e - "I'm not so good as this, but it's on the areas I'm looking to improve and is part of the reason I chose this company as I can gain experience in blah blah blah-"

- Turn up at least 10-15 minutes early. They'll call you in when they're ready.

- Willingness to learn and improve is often more important than pure skill so it's good to reinforce this. Pointing out areas in your old work you would improve given your current experience and skill level for example. I do that a lot.

- Look clean and presentable (obvious one)

- Highlight any other relevant skills you have which can help you appear more versatile.

Most of these points are probably quite obvious but anyway hope it helps. Good luck!
Very late reply, but thanks a lot for your input!

I passed the first interview and will go in for the second and final interview on Monday!
I'm going for a front end job too, but I've mostly worked with back end php/ajax stuff. Do you think I'll get it?

Thank you! Despite I haven't understand because I didn't worked on Cinema4d before. Have you opened the link http://imgur.com/gallery/1aeYJ? There's more and I'd like to find Tutorials on YouTube

Hope some people are still on.

Just find yourself some really striking artwork for the image, then focus on the heading and other texts. You could also add a barcode, month of release, current issue number etc. to add more elements than just text
if it's for personal use, licensing rights for art won't matter right?

A few months ago we had a great thread with a lot of links to sites that had free stock photos, icons, fonts, books and other stuff.

Let's do that again.

It's impossible to kern well without printing it.
There are no bad fonts, even Comic Sans.
When in doubt, shade every element of your project with gradients. If you want to be really detailed, make the strokes gradients too. Contrasting colors make the overall design appear more realistic.

It's aesthetics are ok. Sleekness and fluidity indicate freshness, so you're probably a startup?
But it doesn't tell much more about your brand. What are your products, goals?

Share thread.

Post your best work here budding graphic designers and noobs alike. I wanna see what /gd has to offer. Extra points go to descriptions about why you like it, who commissioned it and what you want to do next.

I recently made a zine for the yearly zine fair in my area. Watching Mr Robot/Fight Club/Matrix and reading Chomsky's Media Control: The Spectacular Achievements of Propaganda put me in the mindset to make this. It was an educational experience that turned out better than expected. Currently making a CD wallet for another lil project.

Looks cool, will you show us the inside? By the way, part of me wants to see one of the letters in HERD be backwards but that may be too cliche... Whats your yearly zine fair called? Any websites to check out other people's work?
Thanks pal, and believe me- the zine's just one massive cliche xD But I had fun. It's basically about how the general public's voice really don't count for much when it comes to how a democratic society is run. You can vote now and then for a leader of the specialized class, but thats about it. The main character comes to this bitter realization, and struggles to come to terms with it.

As for the zine fair, it happens in Bristol, England. And workwise just browse behance, follow the dandad...

company pays me $$$$ to make logo for them
i deliver
they pay me
then they fuck it all up and use it incorrectly

what's the point of spending 40 hours stressing over a design when other people take a dump on it?

how do i control the way its used next time?
25 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
You don't. They paid you, it's up to them how to use it.
im in the wrong game then
answer- you cant. Some clients are shit like this one, others will respect you more as a designer. I hate to say it, but the more powerful the company, the more freedom and respect the designer gets. Head for that market, not the people at Design Crowd.

Best mouse for industrial/graphic designers

Logitech MX or M705 are both great. I like Apple's Magic Mouse a lot too.
After three years, my mx mouse dtarting to have a double click issue...no money to replace the mouse...
Don't listen to this nerd

Can't say anything about mx category, but I've had m705 for a few days and the precision on it is fucking abysmal. The only way I could use it was set pointer speed all the way down, and even then it would be jittery sometimes.

Mx is supposedly better, because of their darkfield tracking technology which is lacking in m705
