350 KB,
Looking for a critique from you guys. I'm finishing up on my first full "project" Designing album cover, flyer, t shirt, other merch for my bands release.

This is the first big project that will be printed and sold so i'd like to know how I did from people I don't know.

This is the album cover

>Why is this so popular? IT'S SO FUCKING UGLY

For two very simple reasons : (1) it is installed on every fucking OS and available right off the bat ; (2) most people don't give a shit about fonts, so they just stick to the standard ones.

It's the same kind of logic with Arial / Helvetica / Univers / Akzidenz / Neue Haas and the likes, for instance : try to explain to most people how fucked up the lowercase "a" is on Helvetica — most of them will just...

It won't. Adobe has you bent over and ready to take the big CC right up yo gaping ass.

It's actually cheaper in the long run. The cost of Master Suite is roughly 3 years of CC payments, but now you get monthly updates and, basically, a the new Suite every year for a 1/3 of the price.

Plus, you can use you high school or college email account to get the first year for $20 a month.

stop working in photoshop and pick up illustrator.

You need a higher resolution of the logo to work with, I can clearly see the smudged pixels. As the previous anon suggested, try to use illustrator/some other program where you can use vectors.
The tip of the round part isn't made well, make it a little narrower/trim it a bit.
Overall, it isn't that bad, it just needs work, like you said.

hi /gd/

Do you know any good course tutorial for basic photoshop, indesign and something a bit more advanced for Illustrator?

I'm an advertising soon to be major, but I'm more like a copy guy than an art guy. Gimp was what I used but I guess that won't be enough for the company where i'll be doing my internship.

Best of luck. I just bought my ps from the darknet(alphabay, it was like $2).

I am just looking online for more structured courses, edx style. I found some PS courses at a local community college, 3 hours a night, once a week for 8 weeks. Might check it out.

You add any expenditure into the fee you're charging them. Much like a mechanic charges for the the parts that need replacing in your car, a designer charges for any fonts, stock images or other resources that cost money to complete their design (with the exception to the programs you use, much like in the first example I gave, you don't pay for the mechanics tools, just the parts)

So, I'm making some news portal (for myself, actually it was supposed to be just a Wordpress blog for a course, anyway I'm making a whole theme from scratch).

I would just want to get some feedback because I was playing with a design and CSS too much, I changed things a lot.

So, I'm interested about your opinions on a design and a page structure. My favourite page is this one in the OP, the review page. The second one will be a page that lists all of the posts from a specific category and I wanted to go with a pinterest style at first, but changed...

Yeah, and also, there are still small things everywhere I need to fix, e.g. a typography.

And I was testing a design of the title of the posts in the sidebar so it is inconsistent at the moment. Not sure if I should go with a clean look with blue links, or, like in the third picture, white links with a black background.

Actually, I'd appreciate a recommendation of a good serif italic font for the quote in the header.

Surprisingly, I'm intrigued.

It's stupid, and very simple, but it's definitely unique.

I'm not a fan of the font you chose, but the simple "Agh! A penis!" graphic is eye catching, and certainly unique from other adult offerings.

Both of these.
Also you would probably lose in court, if you were even worth suing, which you are not.

Designing my first typeface
It's a humanist sans with low expansion contrast meant to be used for signalisation so legibility and distinguishability of the letters were my main concerns. It also isnt supposed to be as dull as DIN or SNV typefaces.
What do you think?

Looks really nice.

Also, do you have support for the extended latin characters?

When making a typography I also add support for

à á and ä ã and other stuff

that at least gives you support for all the romance languages (French, Italian, Spanish...) and some weird ones such as German, Norwegian... and will make you font more popular with minimal changes

I'd buy it. But like >>261932 said, add the weird letters. And there seems to be some weirdness going on with the weighting/lines/thickness of the B and N, please... My ocd... Other than that, steady going!

This. Requesting Latvian language characters ē ŗ ū ī ō ā š ķ ļ ž č ņ and other Baltic language's characters.

Basically, Unicode Latin Extended A.

I have a principle of not collecting and using fonts that don't have this character set.

This is a logotype idea for "choco chic", a magazine about chocolate that I made up. Is it really bad? If so, what are the main problems?

(Note: I'm 19 and this is one of the 25 things that I have to present in an A3 folder for my college entrance examination this June, just so you know that I'm not very experienced in this field.)

You have 4 C's to choose from, do it to one of them.

But other than that I like it, don't stress too hard about the college entrance examination, it's mostly just to weed out the people with literally no experience, no talent and no practice, the people that think comic sans and papyrus are perfect for logos. if you show any...
