    Ok I know there was a thread about graphic design sites, but how about techniques.
    Someone has a question about a design, project, technique and we exchange our knowledge on the subject. So I will start it off with a question.

    How do you get that spray paint and drip style effect that they have on the vapors cover, and many other posters i've seen to print so clean. Also I've seen allot of band logos with the broken, almost paint cracking style font. How is that achieved? I have done it where I pick a font print it to my desired size, cut the font out stencil style, then used a sponge with paint and apply it to the stencil. you get the same effect, but then you have to scan it in and play with it to use it in lets say adobe illustrator etc.

    this thread is to exchange graphic design techniques and THATS IT!
    if you saw some good techniques on a website or poster or billboard
    and you wondering how it was done then ask and maybe someone will help you out.
    I run my own company and if anyone has graphic design questions then by all means ask, and I'll do my best to help.



    THIS THREAD IS NOT FOR KINDERGARDEN BULLSHIT!!!
    SO GO FIND ANOTHER THREAD THANKYOU

    what youre asking for isnt even graphic design techniques.

    what you are asking for is how certain people have achieved certain aesthetics. that is where the magic and the ingenuity of the designer is appreciated.. personally for you to be asking about how to make drips and how to do dirty stencil fonts is silly. figure out your own aesthetic.

    if you want a straight answer to your query. the best way to get dirty is to stay dirty. do not use premade fonts directly if you want that "hardcore/punk" type treatment. just like in painting it shows when you use paint straight out of a tube.

    if you want to ask real graphic design questions they should be related to the application of graphic design .. DESIGN.. to a project.. not about aesthetics.

    plus the reason you dont find large open resources on how people achieve certain affects is because thats the tricks of the trade. people are generally secretive. but people might be willing to share their knowledge of appropriate uses of typefaces, kerning, layout, how to make spreads, where to find templates.. etc.

    yeah, what he ^^^^ said

    "the reason you dont find large open resources on how people achieve certain affects is because thats the tricks of the trade. "

    But making you own letters doesnt hurt.
    Those letters you made, could be turned into
    a font of your own. Youre on the right track.

    wanna look at other peoples shit....go here...

    Ok maybe you misunderstood me or the question did not come out the way I wanted it too. I already know how to make all those things. what I wanted to know was how after making that effect do I get it to come out as clean as possible for pre print.
    TECHNIQUE being clipping path magic wand etc. I want an easy way to bring it between programs. There is no SECRET to it and yes it is considered graphic design.
    you can go to the book store and buy books on how to do it. I just thought maybe people would be cool enough to help each other out. I asked derek hess how he printed his stippling effect and he was more than happy to help out. As have many people asked how I achieved crtain effects and I was more than happy to help.

    I actually wouldnt mind there being a thread where help and ideas can be shared, kinda like a tech/tutorial/instruction type thing, cause there certainly are a lotta heads on here that know what they are doing. then when someone has an inquiry they can kinda go to one thread, instead of the dozen help me in photoshop threads (which ive done before too) but whatever floats peoples boats.
