    "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.

    Well, I've been hanging out here for close to a year now, and I only have four official forum friends. Now, it's not like I'm lonely, and it's not as though my existing high-quality forum friends are inadequate in any way. But my wife has something like between 1,000 and one billion Facebook friends. So when I showed her this site she started bemoaning my lack of friends, like I was some sort of leper or social misfit.

    I've got to prove her wrong. I need more forum friends Ś fast!!

    lol... We all went apeshit for the social friends/groups/messages stuff when it first came out and we've ignored it ever since.

            lol B.
            I have challenged many people around me to cut down on their facebook list. I mean do you really need the schmuck from junior high stalking your FB page?
            And is your tutor from 20 years ago still relevant?

            I get having a few hundred friends... maybe. I got my list down to 100. I could get it down to at least 75 but some people I keep b/c they are family and it's not worth the fight that will ensue if they realize I've deleted them.

            So you could argue that having less #'s of friends means you're more valuable? Cause you have best friends!

              Holy cow, I've already tripled my forum friend list. I'm starting to feel popular. It's so nice to have quality friendships! Keep 'em coming!

                Hi <b>, I've been reading some of your contributions to various discussions over the last few weeks and I think that you're part of a select group of forum members who actually have something valuable and interesting to say.

                I'd like to be your friend, in the vain hope that some of it rubs off on me!

                  Whoa, whoa, whoa … no one said anything about these friendships needing to be "quality" … I just heard a request for "quantity".

                  I should just point out that my friendship in general is never considered quality … it's usually referred to as "mildly annoying" at best.

                          I think it's one of those reciprocal sort of award things. You know, you can't have friends unless you're a friend yourself. Or spelled another way, you befriending me automatically confers my friendship upon you. Now that I think about it though, I suppose it could be an equally dangerous risk to both of us.

                          I'm already finding that this forum friend stuff involves highly complicated social interactions.
