    "but I have always been led to believe that the degree isn't as important as talent/know-how in graphic design..."

    We don't even consider applications that don't list a degree where I work, though even people with degrees can have terrible portfolios. Out of probably 30 applicants from our most recent opening, maybe...

    Honestly, if you are unsure, it's better to under design. People who are new to design have this tendency to put everything they can think of into a design. Design is just as much about culling and restraint....

    We have a $250,000 digital printer and the backups can be up to 2mm out. That is within specifications.

    So the answer is no. It's near impossible to get a printer that is bang on. Which is...

    Looks like it's not a free font. But $25 for four fonts in a typeface is really reasonable.

  • You know that guy PD...

    He says some pretty funny stuff sometimes. He says a lot of other boring technical stuff too that probably helps someone now and then. But for some reason I feel compelled to post a bunch of the funny ones.

    Here are some recent goodies...

    I'll print anything you send me. But if you want that logo on the side of a building in 3D letters that light up, it will cost you money for me to fix your photoshop logo into a vector thing that a CNC will read. And I'm going to up my price very soon. No joke. This photoshop thing is already rampant. And it is wrong. Anyone that believes Photoshop is for logos should have their computer taken away. Or at least banned from selling their creations as Graphic Design.

    I'm currently looking at the good old Photoshop jpg placed in an Illustrator .eps file.
    It frightens me that this can still happen... Adobe should put a keyboard voltage capacitor in there to give 'corrective stimulus' if someone tries to do that.
    "are you sure you want to save this as a .eps file?"
    "yes"
    "Are you REALLY sure you want to save this as a .eps file?"
    "yes"
    "OK. You asked for it." BZZZZZZLLBZZZZLBZZZZZzzzzzzZAP!

It was an abstract Photoshop whiz bang, not even anything truly awe inspiring.

    The next year I entered a big orange-yellow square and called it "Close up of a School Bus at One DPI"
    Needless to say, I was juried out, but some of them got the point.

    Haven't been back to that Arts Council since.
    Here's a few classics...

    Yeah, that might just fly. No one believes it when I say I'm reading the articles.

Why do people get so upset if you just leave the new roll on top of the old tube for the next person to change while they're sittin there with nuthin to do??? At least I got out the new roll. Sheesh.

      Well, I mean, if George Clooney had ended up doing large format work.

          Geez, I saw that post title and posted by Kool and thought, "Oh sh*t, what'd i do now..."
          Such a guilty conscience...
          25k eh?

          Edit: Broacher, I've been compared to House quite often, never George Clooney...
