A typical /gd/ album art thread.

/gd/ is 4chan's new board for Graphic Design. Populated by graphic designers and 15-year-olds who have have learned how to use more than just Photoshop and/or The GIMP, it's a prime haven for Random Album Art threads, transparent .png clip art threads and serious discussion of shoops.

During a very srs and important thread, it was collectively decided to go by the cognomen of 'win/gd/ings,' a clear tribute to the best type-face in existence.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Graphic Design University, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret branding ops for Fortune 500s, and I have over 300 confirmed logos. I am trained in kerning and typography, and I’m the top creative in the entire Art Directors Club.

You are nothing to me but just another dead pixel. I will gaussian blur you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of Creative Directors across the USA and your Photoshop serial number is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can liquify you in over three hundred DPI, and that’s just with my layer filters. Not only am I extensively trained in tracing bezier curves, but I have access to the entire arsenal of Creative Suite CS6 and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit.

If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking type tool. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit noise and grain all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

How to troll them

  • Use tons of gradients and drop shadows
  • Claim that every flat design is minimalism
  • Say that GIMP is for poor people and that Photoshop is way better
  • Like all design trends
