    A book? There's hundreds. People spend years studying this and trying to figure it out. Not sure it can just be learned in a book (although a lot of books will advertise themselves to do that).

    Agreed with the above points. Also, to me, it feels a little amateurish to go straight for the fortune 500 companies rather than starting with the little guys. A start up is very unlikely to get work...

    Sounds like the first thing you need to do is some more broad research to see what information is out there that you could write your essay on. Try the web, of course, but also go to the library and browse...

    The logo looks a little like the web ten years ago when bevel and emboss were used a lot, so if you're a web designer and developer it makes you look behind the times. Take a look at current logo design...

    Maybe start with not using Photoshop to create logos.
    If you are using Illustrator, don't rely on the bevel and extrude function to give you adequate shading. If you look at that in wireframe, what...

  • On World of Warcraft, I created a character which I would play heavily for multiple years. When I created her, her skin reminded me of Hematite, thus I named her Hematita.
    I used the name for quite a while and it was rather unique, so I use it as a username sometimes now.

        • My story is pretty silly. I like the new My Little Pony cartoon and for kicks one day I looked up one of the name generators for it. I put in my name (first and last!), and it generated 'Cherry Belle'. I thought that name was really cute, and I re-generated with the same criteria a couple times, and it never changed, so I know it was some crazy algorithm translating my first and last name into 'Cherry Belle'.

          Heh...

            • I use StudioMonkey online in a couple of different forums. No reason to keep thinking up a new one for each Forum I register with.

              The name says it all.

                  • Its my name. I am called Mal by anyone who doesn't like saying Malice - a strange thing when someone won't say your name because of the "connotations" of it. It is just a name, and it means "ill intent" - some would say it described me many years ago - but now I am who I am and yet I am Malice - So Hi everyone I am Malice

                        Keming, I had to go do some research to get the joke... I have a new appreciation myself!

                        I really wish the forum hadn't limited me on my usual name now... accidentalpancake would have been much more amusing.

                    • For what I recall (I use this alias for a very long time), Baylock is the name of a character in "Rosemary's baby" (book/movie).
                      I believe it comes from a demon which is initially called Baa'lok.
                      I'm pretty sure it is the name of the nurse taking care of the baby and I found it pretty cool and catchy when I saw the movie.
                      I use it since then, sometimes as Baylock, sometimes as Bayl0ck when the other spelling is already used (most of the time it is available).
                      If it was up to me, my alias would be "Lex" but, of course, it is too short and way to common to be available nowadays...

                        I believe Mrs. Baylock was the nanny in The Omen.
