  • Former Lurker

    Hallo all. I've been lurking here (without registering, that is) for almost a year. So it is time for me to join the fray . . . er . . . "fun".

    I'm K from NOVA (some people say Virginia, others say DC . . .). I graduated in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts. 2 years after that was spent hand-drawing signs for a grocery store, working in a design studio and helping a friend's family business layout a book. In 2006, I got a job in a teeny-tiny graphics group (as in, 3 people) for a fairly large gov't contractor. As much as the pay and learning possibilites are nice, the work here is feast or famine.

    When not designing, I watch movies and the occasional anime, read/buy books, listen to industrial stompy music and try to find decent games for my SNES.

    Welcome to GDF, gluhen. Thanks for de-lurking. I bet you'll find that it's much more fun to participate in the reindeer games than to watch from the sidelines.

    Enjoy your stay!

          Welcome, so you lurked for a year and you still want to join, you got guts.

            oh, almost forgot... when you get a few minutes have a look at the threads posted HERE
            - they cover just about everything you need to know about the place.

                well they should, I don't write them for my health... and they are quite humorous and entertaining, if I do say so myself.

                Hrmph.

                  What I've Learned From Lurking Over the Year:
                  1. Use a contract
                  2. Mac vs. PC? LOL
                  3. Indy vs. Quark? ROFL
                  4. Spec is bad
                  5. Use a PANCAKIN' contract
                  6. NO YELLING! (Oops)
                  7. Bold name = mod
                  8. identifont and whatthefont are your friends
                  9. Self-taught vs. schooled? See responses to #2 or #3.
                  10. Cupcakes.

                    LMAO. Excellent.

                    I figured that you had probably already seen most of that, having been here for a year... but I figured it didn't hurt to point you in that direction just in case.

                    Oh, you only missed one thing: pie > cake.

                    Otherwise, I think that's about it!

                      Will someone PLEASE think of the cake?!

                      I do enjoy a good pie as well. Baked goods will be the death of me.

                          Word. Cake > Pie.

                          In fact, here's the deal... Cake + Ice Cream = Even better.

                          Welcome to Crazytown! errr... the forum. Yeah, that's it.
                          Let me see you make decisions without your televisions.

                                Are they something you are trying to right click?
                                That doesn't always work. There are web tricks out there that make doing that give you a blank file.

                                Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

                                Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
                                I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...
