    Hi all,

    Just Introducing myself. I’m a designer from the UK who stumbled on your site, and found it hugely addictive.
    I’ve just started out on my own in design, so I figured I’d see how everyone else was getting on.

    Welcome to the Forum MW.
    I saw in other posts that you used to work for design firms and have 8 years in the field.
    Going from working for someone to Freelance is a big step.
    Hope it goes well for you!

        Cheers PrintDriver, and alright uncle carbuncle.

        I work in London which fortunately makes it easier to get the freelance work, but I’m working on building a client base.
        It is a big step but one I am enjoying. Beats 18hr days, now I get to do 20hr days.

                    Welcome to the GDF!

                    Weird? I don't know the meaning of the word.

                    Graphic Design Heroes! Call me Captain Type Caster. I’ve fought off “The Evil Cosmic Sans” for year but it seems “Dr. Extreme Untalent” keeps bringing him back. I must find a way to defeat this evil creature.

                    Capt. Creative bring me those comps…

                      That's because you are the meaning of the word.

                      And the GDF wouldn't have it any other way. Awww.....

                            Hi all you new people, welcome to the GDF!

                            ‘Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately controlled. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

                                Hi there! I've been attending OCAD for two years now after attending another college. I'm told it's a much different atmosphere than colleges because it's less focused on "application" and more...

                                Adobe InDesign and a JPG Size
                                Hi again,
                                For some reason, the jpg that is 1920 px by 680 px does not fit into the Adobe InDesign 1920px by 680px document. When I place the jpg into INDesign it shows up much smaller. I know this...

                                Absolutely. There is nothing worse than explaining the color gamut to clients who have fallen in love with the vibrant RGB colors that turn to mud in CMYK. Nothing.

                                I thought Adobe bought out the forum to silence all the badmouthing of their brand I've been doing lately.
