  • 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.

                                Thanks for the feedback for my assessment, I was a bit vague with the brief (the elements are to market the studio not decorate the studio) - your comments on the wall sign were very helpful, it's the...
