<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.

Give me interesting facial expressions and I'll render them like this. Maybe get a new generation of reaction images going

Program to design a planet

No.415027 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hey friends. I'd like some recommendations for a program to design planets. I'm not talking about just taking a ball adding bumps and coloring it, but a program that lets me actually zoom in, create detailed hills, mountains and caves.

Thanks in advance.

Give me ICONS proposals for eco-solar roof.

I started working at a ecosolar roof company, its a new company focused on new generation, they asked ME who doesn't undeerstand anything of Illustrator or photoshop to come with 3 icon proposals.

I could draw it but i'm not sure how much "professionalism" they want... guys, simple work, just give me pictures simple. I am desperate.

What I can tell you? I was thinking of something along these alines but actually well done. Thanks /gd/

I'm so pissed about this change and I'm not even that racist, it looks disgusting and is just tailor made for virtue signalling. It checks all the boxes for a modern graphic design:
>breaks soulful tradition
>looks hideous
>meaningless
I want to burn it. Sincerely, /lgbt/

Is brutalist graphic design the next thing? I don't know much about it but I personally prefer seeing this over any minimalist/corporate soulless designs. What do you think about it?
