  • Hello! It's a pleasure to join

    I'm a full time Graphic Design student (my 50th birthday present to me) and it is a dream come true.

    I love it all and I'm looking forward to learning by listening, and asking when I need to. I'm taking Photoshop and InDesign along with Photography, Design 1 and Drawing. My biggest challenge right now is my grey value scale(11) for Design 1 (I do love the guache my instructor required) My background is working with fabric, so I understand color. I'm going for perfect increments because training my eye to see it will be invaluable. I'm just not there yet...I'm enjoying the process...InDesign is online and that's a bit tricky. The program is brand new to me, and I know I'm spending hours on things that should be easier...Our book is Revealed, I use the Help a lot but I'd love a couple of reference library referrals to add to my stash. Thanks, and I'll try to be less verbose and more concise...

    I'm just really glad to be here!

    Welcome to the forum svd, and congratulations on being able to pursue your dream.

    You'll find a lot of invaluable advice on here. Check the Adobe products section often, use the forum search for InDesign, and definitely check out this link: InDesign Secrets.

    If you have iTunes, there are also some good podcasts on InDesign that you can check out, and the Adobe InDesign forum is also a good place to go for resources.

    Good luck, and once again, welcome!

                  A sophomore in college is not ready to be offering services to a ''client'' looking for a branding package for their business. You may have done it. The company may even still be in business.

                  If you are looking for a consistent look, done quickly, you hire an illustrator.

                  Bear in mind though that you have to negotiate a usage contract with the illustrator. If your client simply...

                  I hear you PD but I feel working directly with a client (not always just friends and family) and their requests to develop a logo, brand, flyer whatever is a great way to not only make a buck but grasp...

                  Passwords don't matter. As soon as they see it, they can copy it, if that is what they intend to do.
                  They aren't looking for a logo, business card or letterhead. They are looking for a marketing...
