    Are you the designer, the printer, the merchant or all of them? A designer doesn't typically base fees on the number that will be printed. A printer, on the other hand, does do that. Even when a designer...

    Looking for some input on this matter.

    Many years ago we published a map for railroad enthusiasts that was 1/1 black and folded several times into 3.5" by 9". Nothing all that...

    Better photo, but flip it so the eye travels left to right. Having on the left side it kind of stops the eye there.

    Have you not learned about line lengths? This is about 88 characters long....

    So I got the new SSD and it's amazing. It fits in the palm of my hand but so much speed compared to my old one. Here's some graphs of before and after (keep in mind it was a buggy 5 year old drive):...

    It's an interesting-looking graphic, but for the reasons already mentioned, it doesn't really meet the usual requirements of a logo. I'm not a big fan of Lobster either, but that's just me.

  • MAC or PC?

    I'm sure this question gets exhausted around here lol

    I just started a new job as web and graphics manager and I have to basically get everything brand new; software and hardware.
    I would like to propose getting a new system either a PC or a MAC.
    All of the files my predecessor were created on a PC, the machine I am on now. If I switch to a new MAC OS what would be my advantages switching to a MAC over the PC. I have been on a PC for the past 3 years and my MAC skills are a bit rusty, especially since my jobs have all had PCs.

    I will mostly be working on website designs and updates and graphics as well.

    I have a list of software that I will be getting.

    Any advice or suggestions would be helpful!

    Thanks all,

    I'd look into part avalability (upgrades), locality of part stores (near you, for emergency part replacements) in your area.. and the major thing is overall cost.. Either system works, and what works for you. Majority here will vote/convince you to go with a Mac. Might aswell stick to what you are used too. I personally prefer PC's because I can't get Autodesk's AutoCAD for the Mac.

    Also I haven't had the best of luck with using a Mac, especially at school (2nd associates), which use the EMac's. But then again they just could have been a bunch of bad apples. yes pun in ten did! (bad spelling/grammer intended.)

      Advantages to getting a Mac:

      you won't be berated by all of us for using a pc.
      Stability.

      err... whatever. (get a mac) I'm a pretty staunch mac supporter, but you can work fine on both really. (get a mac) You'll probably never even run into compatibilty issues. (get a mac) I own a mac at home for my own work - but at my job (get a mac) I use a PC. I die a little inside everyday, but it get's the job done. (get a mac)

        Mac OS can be run in PCs, so you could buy a pc either way. Stability and all that included.

          Windows can be run in a Mac too. Natively.

                Maybe Apple, should give up on the hardware fight (do what sega did, and just make games, and no systems), and just focus on the OS like windows? then let the hardware manufacturers build the parts to work on both OS setups, then restrict the manufacturers to supply part drivers for both OS. Also the parts manufacturers should also be complient, and compatable (drivers) with other manufacturers (other parts). think about it? AMD with OSX? hum... Think I'll wake up now.

                      Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately controlled. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men. - Woodrow Wilson
