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

Adobe Illustrator

Corel Draw



Adobe Photoshop

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.

Swiss Style Posters

No.409917 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I'm redecorating my office soon and have been looking for hi-res Swiss style posters to print.
Unfortunately the results from image searches aren't the best and are unsuitable for my needs as I'd like to have A2 prints at least.
So I've taken it upon myself to reproduce some designs by Josef Muller-Brockmann and Armin Hofmann.

How did I do /gd/? Also, rate my kerning.
Will upload more as they are completed.

I'm trying to do the 3D fading into transparency effect.
At first I tried https://youtu.be/phW5237sb5o
and various ways of overlaying black-transparent gradient with stroke etc.

Still, that doesn't really give the desired effect as the whole trail/shadow is a flat thing for PS.

Is there any good way of making this effect besides drawing every surface with a pen tool and applying the gradients separately? It doesn't feel right for how popular it is.

So after two months and 60 hours spent I finally finished my courses for Illustrator and Photoshop. I think that I learned a lot and can easily do whatever I want inside those programs.

But what the fuck do I do now? How to start actually building my portfolio? I fear that I'll forget how to use the programs if I will not work in them.

Font Request Thread

Request and share non-free typefaces and identification of typeface samples.

Previous thread >>397954

> Font identification

Before you request, do your due diligence by running your font sample through a font identifier;

whatfontis <dot> com
fontsquirrel <dot> com/matcherator (be sure to enable the myfonts setting)
myfonts <dot> com/whatthefont

If you're not getting a clear read then put your sample in PS, separate the letters and colour it to be pure black on a white background.

> Font requests

First of all, check;

vk <dot> com/board178186634
graphicex <dot> com

> Uploading

catbox <dot> moe is great for uploading small-sized zips containing fonts, especially since it doesn't expire.

If somebody helps you then pay it forward!
