    As HotButton mentioned, a baseline grid is useful for aligning the baselines of lines of text and other items across columns, and really, that's about it. There's really no point in using a baseline grid...

  • Going digital with your print portfolio...

    I'm in search of simple, yet effective approaches for sending my print
    portfolio in digital format to employers on the other side of the country. My web experience is limited at best, so I'm looking for a solid way to send my resume, pieces, etc. without looking like an amateur. Any insight would be appreciated.

        Also, setting up a simple HTML site w/ images saved as JPEGs, whether the jpegs be flattened/finished views of your workfiles or camera pictures taken of the physical works.

        Also, creating a PDF portfolio could help.

          You can add interactivity (navigation etc) to a pdf pretty easily and it really jazzes up a simple slideshow type presentation.
          In this post there are 47 people, none of them can be seen.

            I also did mine as a pdf. I had so many people asking for PDF files that I set the entire portfolio up as a pdf. Works great!

              I had small pdf portfolio that I would email with online applications but I also had website which showed more stuff. I do think web is a good way to go. You can updated it any time you want - whereas the pdfs you send people will need to be resent when you update.
              It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh
