    Frequenting the forums here and at Adobe, I can't help thinking about this almost constantly. There seems to be an endless stream of people engaged in gainful graphic design work despite having no clue...

    I agree, creative spellings will work against you if you're going after corporate work. You know your niche, though, so like you said, kbrumbaug86, it's a personal decision....

    Neither Gimpscape (?) nor Inkscape are drag and drop. Beginners can have at it. Don't cry at the funeral for your profession.

    It's a matter of negotiating what you want in the contract. If you want your name on the cover, ask for it. If it's important to you, insist on it. A professional publisher, however, will likely say no,...

  • when i was in design school almost 20 year ago ...

    They have this little design theory exercise ...

    There is a white square board

    and on this white square board you have 8 by 8 black circles evenly lined up uniformly

    now the design theory is this ... you can only simple geomatric shapes to make a design and a route or path way from one circle to the next

    the idea of the exercise is to make each circle flow from one circle to the next using only simple geometric shapes ...

    so how you use your simple geometric shapes plays a very major role in the design ...

    using things such as positive space and negative space etc etc etc

    this is pure 100% design work ...

    your design must visually flow from one circle to the next through out all the 8 x 8 circles ...

    and there is this other thing ... this is a purely black and white exercise

    no halftone or color or anything ... purely black and white ...


    even up till now ... this exercise is still a doozer ... and it still baffles me a bit ...



    I was wondering if there is any reference books on the market that teaches such design principles ???
