Short answer. No. You don't need math to be a designer. The long answer. If you want to express your creativity through methods which may require math, such as programming, having an understanding (basic-advanced) will reduce the barrier to discovery and exploration. The unsolicited $0.02 If you can do your taxes, estimate costs, hours, and deadlines, ...

If it's for a 2D game, try a sprite animation program like GraphicsGale (http://www.humanbalance.net/gale/us/) You could also use Gimp, it has rudimentary animation features. (http://www.gimp.org) Or Adobe Photoshop. Or Adobe Flash... But like suggested by a comment you should probably read some tutorials first. For example: ...

While not 'free' perhaps the 'cheapest' logo vs. size of company of recent memory is this one: The twitter logo originated as a $6 piece of stock art. And, well, it actually worked out pretty good for them. It's been tweaked and customized since then but, hey, $6. That said, that's perhaps the exception to the rule. There's nothing wrong with stock art ...

The long and short if it is, it's about legal issues. Logos need to often be trademarked or registered. Using free resources often means the designer does not own the rights to the free item. So, rights certainly can't be provided to any client if the designer doesn't already own them. A copyright can not be acquired for something if you don't own the rights ...

First, most things in existence are copies of some idea or other. The skill to pick, search and match are worth while design skills*. In fact its often better to pick out things than to succumb to the not invented here syndrome. Second, you can draw. Logos are very geometrical and usually quite simple. Since every 3-5 year old I've interacted with last 5 ...

It is hard to create something completely unique and original. Every design is result of ideas and inspiration and other factors. Sometimes if you use free resources to use create design, it is more important if you manage to create "the message" and deliver what customer really needs and wants. It is a long process to create something completely unique an ...

A cost of a designer is going to depend on that designers experience and work history. I would say on average a jr. designer is going to be in the range of $20-35 an hour, a designer is going to be $35-60 and an senior designer is going to be anywhere from $60-125. Those figures will change depending on your location. For example a sr. designer in NYC is ...

The printer is likely referring to the price of plotting at his facility. A plotter is a large format printer that uses rolls of paper instead of sheets. When I last plotted an oversized image at FedEx Office, they charged about $1.50 per inch and their plotter was 44 inches wide. Extrapolating from that, it sounds like the printer is saying your images ...

If she gets into 3D work at all a dedicated graphics card would be handy. A built-in screen also comes with a known colour profile too. From there - does it need to be portable (15" Retina MacBookPro), or is a desktop OK (27" iMac)? Maxxing out memory is wise; buying a TimeMachine external backup disc is wiser. Software - Adobe CC, and think about Font ...

If the school recommends specific hardware and software, then that's what you should use. If they don't, then it doesn't really matter. Generically speaking, get the fastest laptop you can afford and max out the RAM and Hard Drive. But even the cheapest MacBook will likely be fine. As for software, Adobe Cloud Student Edition is likely all she needs. ...

It doesn't matter. Any Apple computer capable of running the current operating system (10.10 - Yosemite) will work just fine. Literally any OS10.10 system. Any specific model is fine - iMac, MacMini, MacPro, MackBook, MacBookPro -- any of them will work. By the time she's ready for something more (if she ever even needs more), the technology will merit an ...

If you just want to remove some of the blue and decrease the overall saturation... choose Image > adjustments > Hue/Saturation and move the Saturation slider to the left. The father left you move it, the more grey the image will get.

You appear to be using a legacy version of Illustrator. In Illustrator CC you can highlight embedded images in the Links Panel and choose Unembed... fromt eh Links Panel Menu which will bring up the Save As dialog window allowing you to save the image separately. If the image is indeed a link, you would highlight it in the Links Panel and choose Edit ...

You can’t export linked images in AI. The linked window only shows a summary which lists all thumbnails that I linked in your AI document. In case the original image exist on your computer, try the palette option: „Edit the original“ which opens the original image file in an image editing program.

My suggestion would be this: Add text without underline Adjust text to correct size, font, and color Use the Pen tool to create a straight stroke Adjust the fill of the stroke to the color desired for the underline Place the new line under the text field You now should only have to copy and paste the stroke under each word that needs it. This seems like ...

I can not personally recommend a website to find what you are looking for due to the fact I create my own, I will suggest using more precise terms when attempting a search query. If you are looking for buttons, icons, and other such things. Using these terms will allow you to better sort through the vast amount of images. Don't forget to use the term ...

Assuming these are for HR to help with annual compensation calculations... This is a corporate political task more than anything. As such, think like a politician. Make promises that sound good, but can't really be adequately judged upon completion. Promise low, deliver slightly higher. Keep them vague enough where you don't corner yourself. Use as much ...

Here are some ideas. If you use a tracking system for your work, you can use your completed tasks as inspiration for your next goal items. They are usually descriptive enough, and hold real value. If you don't, the same applies. It's always useful to think of a goal as set of tasks. What steps will you take when preparing, for example, the infographics? ...

After adding underline, convert the text to vector curve the select only the underline and assign any color you want. The drawback is if you want to change the text, you have to delete it, rewrite the new text and do these again.

I would draw a new thin rectangle and put under the text you would like to underline. You can then group the 2 objects to keep together. Too bad it isn't as easy as CSS.

Children's t-shirt graphics are, of course, smaller. Adult graphics are generally the same size because unless you're designing for a company such as Big Dog, who specializes in larger sizes, the number of extra large sizes which are sold is very small in relation to the normal small-medium-large sizes. Much will depend upon who your end customer will be - ...

When you are saving the illustrator file as a png, what option is selected? Art Optimized or Text Optimized? I've found that these make a difference in how sharp the resulting image is. If there is no text in your graphic, select "Art Optimized" and see if that helps.
