    [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

        Welcome to the GDF, cobblestone.

        Gird-up your loins,

                      I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

                      Also just to address your OP more specifically, Twitter vs a forum.

                      On twitter I can message someone I know and ask for a crit or fresh set of eyes. On a forum I can post that same message,...

                      It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
