  • Guess who is waiting less tables and is working back in design...

    I hope you guessed it, because it's pretty easy. I only toot my own horn

    But seriously, I am now back behind a computer with my hands working on designs again. After an unfortunate incident (called the economy downward spiral), I found myself out of the beautiful Ad Agency I was at two years ago. I started waiting tables over a year ago, and kept looking for a job that would let me use my experience and degree.

    Well that day has come. I'm now at Quiksilver in Huntington Beach.

    Which means I will be back on the forum lurking and asking/answering questions. To those who knew me, I'm back. To those who didn't, you have been warned

      Nice One Carter,
      I'm on the same boat, been working in a restaurant for 1 1/2 years aswell, although constantly working behind the scenes, on a portfolio, so when the clients come knocking am ready. Ive just secured a contract with the actual restaurant that i worked for, thatll give me at least 2 months design work!
      My life just got a whole lot rosier in the last couple weeks... there's nothin better _ cant wait for all the nightmare clients again!!

                Hey I sorta remember you Welcome back to the madness.

                Glad you're back in the fold, hope it isn't too pressing, and that you've scored a great job, and it's obviously a "cyan" of good times ahead, hopefully you can start moving into the black and stay out of the red, green-er grass, blue-er skies! Saddle up and bound perfectly to your new success, be the glue, be the thread! Let the good times Roll and have a RiPing time.

                  Welcome back Carter! Nice to see ya around again!

                  FWIW, I'm still waiting tables. I've been doing it for so long I think I'd feel incomplete if I wasn't.

                          wow, good to see some ol' familiar names.

                          And thanks to everyone for all the kind words. Yeah, I'm pretty stoked, it's going pretty good.

                          Typically, I haven't played the XBox too much, I got myself addicted to DDO so i've been playing that for the past year.

                          Yeah, Bladz, it's That Quiksilver. I'm working on the DC Shoe catalogues.

                                I am wondering if there is a setting or plug-in in Indesign or acrobat in which I can automatically place/show the Pantones I used in my design. Right now I have to draw out boxes and label the Pantones...

                                I think you'd do better to put a smily face in one of the circular letter forms, as that would at least emphasize commitment to 'nice'.

                                If the logo is not what you had in mind, why do you show it here?

                                I'd say there are three big issues that leap out to me.

                                1. Navigating is really difficult - I just have to guess where to click and it takes me to a page, though I'm not often sure where...
