<span style="color:#789922;">>What literature should I read to get into graphic design?</span>

The sidebar on the /gd/ wiki has plenty of book reccomendations.



<span style="color:#789922;">>What programs do I need to get started?</span>

-Vector

Adobe Illustrator

Corel Draw

Inkskape



-Bitmap

Adobe Photoshop

Gimp



-3d

Blender

Cinema4d



<span style="color:#789922;">>Which program is the best for X?</span>

It's usually subjective if you pick a program in each of the right categories above. Use vector programs if your making a logo/icon/illustraton, use bitmap programs if you're messing with a photo or stock image. Gimp, Inkskape, and Blender are free alternatives and have the same function as the paid programs but the paid programs tend to be used more in a professional enviroment.

How do I recreate this sort of uneven star in Illustrator, possibly with instructions on also how to adjust the number of points in the star if I want to?

How does one make "art" like this?
More specifically the lighting and bloom?
I was thinking Illustrator but some of these look more 3D

Artist is Dave Chenell

Back when design wasn't infected by the globohomo and tech was seen as a 'hope' for the future and actually looked futuristic, unlike the flat/minimal style we see today
