  • 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!

            It's nice you still get to do what you've always wanted. I still hope to get a private pilot licence someday...and maybe own a small plane.

                  I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

                  Also just to address your OP more specifically, Twitter vs a forum.

                  On twitter I can message someone I know and ask for a crit or fresh set of eyes. On a forum I can post that same message,...

                  It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
