    I did this: https://www.elpishost.com/
    It was my first attempt at that ever, but me and the client were both satisfied.
    Where did I do good and where did I fuck up
    The design is nice, but when I go to 'Sales' and then back to 'Home', I get a different Home.

    Edited:

    and I'd make the logo clickable.

    Very busy. I'd remove the things protruding from the side, or at least the yellow things next to the red things. I'd also try to replace the yellow with some other colours, e.g. green.

    theyre pretty bad, in a 'my first photoshop web2.0 edition'. theyre literally just a really bad primary colour gradient and a one toned shine. try some nicer colours, try a gradient in the gloss, try circular edges. or better yet, move on from that style, its pretty bland. (asshole post soz dont take it the wrong way)

    It depends on what kind of graphic design you're wanting to do. It would be more difficult to try and do every aspect with just Photoshop since other Adobe programs like Illustrator and InDesign have their place as well.

    If you're a student, you should be able to get a good discount on Adobe's entire design related set of software. As in around $300 that is.

    Indesign - Books, magazines and anything with heavy amounts of text.

    Illustrator - Vector shapes for things like logos, graphical elements and anything that needs to be vectored for the one reason or another.

    Photoshop - Editing and/or manipulating photos and images. Most versatile to use for posters, if the poster is going to have a photo in it or heavily edited text, otherwise Illustrator is better.

    Flash - Making animated things like ad banners. Can also be used for web-design but should be avoided if there isn't a very specific reason for it. (can also be used as a substitute for Illustrator if you prefer it)

    Dreamweaver - To code the basics for websites, getting your shit on the net so you can not only make the webdesign but also see it functioning. Not a necessary program or knowledge for Graphic Designers, but useful to know what they have to deal with so you can adjust yourself to a web-coders needs.

    After Effects - To make motion-graphics, useful if you're going to work on animated design for TV or need animation in a commercial poster (screen posters). Not necessary to know.

    I think he's talking about the backgrounds of the gamer pictures which would be that image in the top right which is just a gray to black gradient.

    i would still very much move away from that style, it's incredibly outdated (and was always pretty bad. i'm guilty of having gone through that phase too, as are a lot of people.) it won't be long until microsoft changes those too.

    the entire "gloss" look, as I've come to understand it. It's an old way of making something look fancy that has been overused and now looks really cheap and ugly.

    Eh I think if it's done subtly it can compliment certain things very well. Not as often as some people think unfortunately.

    i think simple one color stuff is the shit now. Like the Xbox one, or that Windows OS for the smartphone. They just play with simple shapes in 1 color with no extra effects or anything.

    And also now I feel that cars with a matte paintjob look cooler than the ones with a glossy paintjob

    Do you graphic designers usually charge hourly rates or by logo? Or does it just depend?

    I believe most just charge for the logo. The price of the logo is partially decided by the quality and effort needed.

    Of the bottom two, I think the first one has the emblem going too far down and it's kind of distracting. On the second one, I'm not a fan of just having a big black rectangle up there because it's even more distracting.
    It's normal to have a big focus above the type, but in the second one, it's just blackness and when you use stacked text like it is in your logo it just makes it seem too "long" or something.

    Given the choice I actually prefer the top one because your text seems to have a lot of focus and the circular form compliments that. However, I think you could do without a lot of the shapes scrunched inside.

    I'm not one of the super experienced experts on here, but that's just how it comes off to me.

    well what if I added the word Radio on the second one?

    I was playing with what I had while I was waiting for critiques.



    I'm going to check the circular thing

    It's better than the other one I think, but it's still odd because the typography makes it seem like you want me to focus on the world "CURE" but then you also still have this huge black area above it.
    It also seems like it's all a bit too tight as well.

    I like this a lot more. But the lightning is really busy and distracting and I think his hair is just really odd, it's too geometric, try and make it's forms a bit more organic without losing the hard feel. As for the lightning... Lightning sparks instead? I dunno.

    I agree, great logo. Black ( or gray) and white version works well.

    Only change I would possibly make would be to move 'Long Island' left to line-up with the C in computer.

    I'm noticing most of your designs are just a couple of lines and barely any illustration. i suggest you try some more full bodied stuff.
