So I haven't done anything with graphic design in ~8 years.

I've been pondering rebuilding my portfolio to see if there are any worthwhile opportunities in the field for one so disconnected as myself.

What do you think /gd/, still worth trying?

Depends on your motivations, other skills/employment/age, opportunity costs, etc...

>Get hustling, do some gigs that inspire you, and you'll see for yourself.

If you wanna start posting things for your portfolio other anon's can critique, but doing the above will help you much more because you'll refresh your skills, you'll create new things that are actually needed today, and you'll probably learn something new.

Best of luck,

Anyone else really like Dropbox's design?
7 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Some of their internal projects are cool but as far as product goes It's the same stuff 90% of all north american tech startups are shitting out.
Dropbox has the worst UI and the most inefficient UX of all cloud hosting services out there, and it's ridiculous, considering the fact that they are in this business for such a long time. It is so unintuitive, so many crutial features that are missing; I could go on and make a list with everything that's wrong, but I'm just too lazy to do it. If you want to see good design practice that is first and foremost usable (since… you know, that's the mission of good design—not some cute and lovely illustrations) than check out Microsoft's OneDrive. That's...

For those of you who are currently in Graphic Design for a profession, what are the pros and cons? I'm in the place now where I have to decide if I will pursue it or not. I have an interest in typography and making logos and creating ideas, but is it worth going after as a career?

Why did Ashley leave us?
No. Go learn to do something that someone will actually pay you to do.
GD is full of faggots who dont want to get their hands dirty.
Its like becoming an actor, sure you can do it. But good luck making enough money to support yourself.
If you have that itch to scratch you can always make making typeface your hobby.
But learn something that will put money in your bank account so you can move out.

clearly graphic design is your passion

Hey /gd/,

looking to complete my portfolio for product design. As inspiration I've taken these presentation sheets from fellow applicants who got accepted.
I've got some renders renders in Rhino 3d ready but now I'm clueless as how to get them ready for annotation and presentation.
I need arrows/icons etc.
My thought was exporting the raytraced renders/wireframes in PNG and using an Adobe Illustrator/Gimp/PS app with Pages for the final layout.

I have no fucking clue about what's easiest to use. Bottom line should look like pic related...

What programs did they use?
I'm hackintosh master race and got Pixelmator for free, if that helps. I'm guessing I'll need to download the trial of Adobe Illustrator? Are there any non-cancerous alternatives out there?

One more example:
Those are not from the same portfolio and look/function vastly different.

First, the most important thing, decide who you're making a portfolio for. Are you applying for jobs leaning more towards engineering, or 'design'? Are you interested in graphic design as a job or do you want to highlight your CAD skills? It's important that your portfolio shows what your portential employer is looking for, although it's never bad to have a gtaphically strong one.

Start by choosing your page width/height, single page or facing, print or digital etc.

Post your favourite, most revolutionary/influential band artwork. I'm a designer, and am most passionate about band artwork.

This piece by Andy Warhol is an obvious and extremely iconic piece of artwork. In my opinion, this has influenced so much!

I'm going to be that guy and say Warhol was an overrated hack.

For an easy way of it find any dark photograph with similar colours of your choice and then just add a Gaussian Blur to it, over the top add a tiny bit of grain too it, that is if you don't want to do it from scratch. Use google search tools too find the right colour image

Play around with gradients (or use the paintbrush tool on a very low opacity with a feathered brush if you're lazy like me desu), then apply a dusty/chalkboardy texture over it and either overlay it or set it to soft light, then lower the opacity so it's not super bright. Erase it a little bit (very low opacity on a feathered brush) in other areas so it looks like the light is coming from one central point and isn't all over the board, and boom. Another way to achieve the smoke effect would be to fuck around with the Photoshop-generated clouds thing.

like the stye but dont cut the E under the S and the A under the C...choose different glyphs or change the proportions
the C having a bit of space between the A doesnt bother me much, but it does look awkward that the E is buried under both the L and the S. i would definitely consider at least layering the E above the S, but using different glyphs entirely is probably a good idea as well.
The concept is clever, but you need to work on the forms. Right now, it's a bit like a large brain-like shape hovering over a tree stump wearing an innertube.

55 KB,
I'm doing an undergraduate thesis on web user interfaces and I would like to know if there are some more in-depth books about this field? I'd like to find some of the graphic design books like that too.

On the one part I am mentioning Gestalt principles, but it all seems like an article (desu it is because I can't find a better source and everything is the same anyway) because of the simplicity. Like, I have 5 sentences for each principle and don't know what to write about it anymore.

But I really want something more than just a collection of guidelines.

You'll have more to say if you look into UX and works of the ff people:

Yeah, I actually write about UX too, well, it is kinda connected anyway. UX has more depth but in this chapter I am writing about a visual aspect of the interface and talking a lot about common gd theory. It just seems so basic, I'm not sure what to do.

I'm currently using these books:

About Face 3: The Essentials of Interaction Design
Designing interfaces (O'Reilly)
Simple and Usable - Gilles Colborne
Universal Principles of Design - W. Lidwell, K. Holden, J Butler

I feel like all of this is a one big, big meme.

Why is everything so shallow? I mean, all of these books have hundreds and hundreds of pages and when I look back after reading that shit, it all seems like pseudoscience with shallow guidelines.

I'm making a frontend for a news portal and I basically need to write about my process of designing user interface and making a good UX.

Are there really so few people with web design experience here?
