  • Semi-flat design - Semi 3d Design

    Hi guys, new to this forum. I've seen a ton of these type of designs lately, just want to know if this a particular program people are using to create them. Seems far too popular for everyone to be doing the hard way in illustrator.

      Are you talking about the screen interfaces themselves? or the templatized presentation of screen views on devices?
      There isn't anything particularly difficult in doing either.

      I was more grossed out by the Cinema-whatever graphics next entry down. Those things always look lame.

        Why would doing it in Illustrator be the hard way?
        I'd probably do about 90% of it in Illustrator and then do any of the raster work in Photoshop.

          My apologies guys, I should have been more clear, I simply mean the slanted 3 dimensional screens, not what's on the screens themselves. I guess the term is isometric. Attached is a few more examples. You guys think people are just doing in sketch or illustrator and skewing them? Click image for larger version

            Nope. I think they are going to stock template sites and just adding their graphics, either in Photoshop or Illustrator.

            Time is money and those things are a couple dollars on a stock site. Why redo it?
            BTW, it's a really tacky way of displaying things. As adjuncts maybe, but when showing a layout to a client, do it in the flat so they can see what they are getting. Skewing hides all kinds of design mistakes.

            The article you linked to is actually about the stuff on the screens.

                Nope. I think they are going to stock template sites buying hardware renderings and just adding their graphics, either in Photoshop or Illustrator.

                  It is quite impossible to cut a stack of paper exactly on the trim marks. Apart from the accuracy of the cut, which can be problematic, there are other factors;

                  This is how I do it too - take a few quick photos of interesting surfaces while you're out and about and then play around with them in PhotoShop. Once you've done a few like this you get a better idea...

                  Good point, but in my opinion it's distracting in a portfolio and lacks attention to detail when displaying work.

                  Ha, I noticed the printing and registration marks and thought it refreshing to see a designer who knows to include them....
