Graphic Design is beautiful
I'm a Graphic Designer and this stuff will be so useful for when I have to do design projects. I love the font site now it's so very helpful.

Re: Graphic Design is beautiful
It's great that people are willing to make stock and share it with others, it helps so much.

The only thing you need to keep in mind is how to go about crediting the original makers, if they express that in their licence/terms of use, especially with the fonts and if the stock is to be used for commercial products.

But for an amateur graphics maker like myself, well, I just keep it fandom related, this is just for fun right now lol.

Re: Graphic Design is beautiful
Yeah i definitely understand that. Since I am in fact doing it for pay and I know how seriously bad plagiarism is if it isn't just for fun you know. I always check to make sure you can use them for commercial. Oh! dafont.com is what I use mostly for my fonts.

Re: Graphic Design is beautiful
Unfortunately many people don't think too well though and try to take the credit for another person's work. dafont.com is a good resource for me, i've used fonts from that site.
I'd love to learn more about typography though.

Re: Graphic Design is beautiful
I am really wanting to learn more about the typography. I took typography class in school looked up a bunch of fonts and I still suffer with my typography. >.< It's the hardest thing for me. I would love to link to some sites with amazing typography. Most graphic artists are anime fans too so it's pretty nice.

Re: Graphic Design is beautiful
I'm learning web design, but I'd love to learn more about typography and graphic design elements. I may actually enroll in a course, if I ever pass web design. :p

I want to learn about typography and improve my own, even if it I don't use it professionally, it's just something I want to know. XD

Thanks for the link.

Re: Graphic Design is beautiful
Well, my biggest problem with web design is that I have to learn programming, such as creating and running databases (ASP, PHP) and I'm...well, my brain is not coding orientated, it's "creative orientated" lol.

XD

Re: Graphic Design is beautiful
My Dad teaches C++ Programming and Java Script. I know what you mean by the programming being difficult. For me the design is just so very hard. In Dreamweaver the code is already there so I try to use it more.

Re: Graphic Design is beautiful
I just find designing and anything involving a creative outlet like that, easier. I try not to use Dreamweaver, my teachers focus a lot on teaching CSS by hand coding so I'm used to typing out the HTML/CSS code. Tedious but rewarding.
