    [b] </font> </font> Hello all... This is my first post to the forum, after joining it today. This looks like a great place to bounce your ideas around. I look forward to many posts!

    Info about me; home office graphic designer in the Midwest, handful of clients that keep me relatively busy. Been in business for 2.5 years, and in the field for 6ish. I love Quark, but am considering using inDesign for a few small projects until I can become more comfortable with it. I've heard many people say that one you use InDesign, you'll never go back to Quark. What's the opinion here on that?

    Have a great day all!

    hey welcome coblestone
    as far as the indesign/quark question goes, don't ask. nobody will ever agree and you'll end up with pages and pages of people talking crap about the other program, sorta like which is better, mac or pc?. when everyone knows macs are far superior. it happens every couple of weeks. it's fun, but you'll never get any straignt answers. have fun!!!

    ...and remember, tuesday is soylent green day

                      Sorry for the late reply, this site seems to crash on me a lot. Thanks for the feedback! I'll take them into account.
                      Not sure what you mean by the last line. As in, it's that bad?

                      I'd pick the second one since the typography is a bit more distinctive and logo-like. However, I'd add a tail to the two d's -- ones like the a's have.

                      At least you're not stuck with Alex Smith as your quarterback. Sure he doesn't make a lot of mistakes, but how can you when you throw 20 bubble screens a game...
