    outline to stroke - illustrator
    Dani Lima
    I'm working with many icons on illustrator and they are made in different ways. How can I transform all of them into a stroke/ line icon? I've been searching in many forums, but I can't find a way to...

    It's artsy, made-up school work that's largely divorced from professional graphic design. This might have worked in a fine arts-oriented academic program, but in a job interview, it will mostly serve...

      'Actually, I'm a graphic designer...'. Let's face it, it's a pretty sexy job title.
      Very true. Makes you feel pretty cool even if you're not.

      I always reckon seeing something you enjoyed designing actually printed out and in use is one of the most satisfying parts of this job.

      And I head up the design dept. for a marketing agency, and even if the clients aren't always grateful, the account managers often are. Being the person who gets someone out of a hole is pretty satisfying too. As long as they appreciate it.

      On a non-job related theme: my new house, my wife, my son, my baby on the way, being nearer our families, a cracking drive to and from work each day and cherryade all make me smile.

        Mmmm... cherryade.

        I would've taken over the world, but I got distracted by shiny things.

          Driving to work and seeing the logo I designed on the front of the building for all the passerbyers to see in all it's glory.

            Driving to work and seeing a billboard you designed, for all the passerbyers to see!

            That was my proudest moment!

                Finally sending the 60 page marketing collateral project to the printer and it's going to be the weekend in a few minutes. Can it get any better that that? Yeah, but it still feels good.

                  I wrote my boss a brief 'thank you' note to show him that I appreciate them providing my gas allowance and he actually called me this morning to thank me for the note.

                  It's nice to feel appreciated.

                      I had a client offer me tickets to a concert series for a brochure I just finished for them at work.

                      As a freelancer, seeing one of your projects distributed around most of the businesses in St. Catharines on a 28,000 run is pretty damn cool.

                        It's pretty cool when I get some of the stuff I do in my post box! Although I've probably pulled my hair out a million times during the project, it's always pretty neat to have something you've done shoved through your letterbox.

                        Oh and I was bought a box of chocolates last week by someone because they loved the work that I did for them. And a bottle of wine the week before. I always feel guilty when people buy me gifts because I feel I'm just doing my job, but then I think - well they're not paying me enough so hey, who cares?!! Sorry - that was negative! Hmmm choccies and wine - not quite in reuber's heathkick frame of mind!

                          not GD related..but anyways seeing my wife get bigger and bigger and knowing that very soon my son will be born. IT's helped me realize the more important things in life.

                          In terms of GD, recently my company was parts of a huge conference to show off our latest products. We had a booth set up and i did the back drop mural for them. This thing was i think around 20ft wide and 10ft tall. Though i didn't see it personally i saw pictures and all the sales reps and marketing folk were very impressed. Even our counterparts in the U.S were impressed.

                          makes me feel all tingly inside!

                            You know Tyger, when I read that first sentance but not the whole thing I thought you had some kind of fat fetish. But then I read the whole thing, and that must make you feel pretty special.
