    I like the looks. I'm a big fan of infographics when they're done well and actually communicate information efficiently and effectively.

    B is right. We can't really tell what's wrong with your layouts without seeing them.

    The most valuable layout advice I heard was back in art school, over 2 decades ago; but it wasn't from...

    These were ideas in my head that I made for fun not to be implemented in any way. Yes the banner is meant to be seen on a computer and because I had to screenshot both it looks smaller than it actually...

    Comment on 'Beeeh': Logo critique
    MelbDesigner
    @Kayekaye I agree...first impression (without the brief) is crucial. I will look into the way "beeeh" is being projected and then, how it is interpreted by the audience. As described in my previous...

      Welcome to the forum, Dreamz.

      When you have a moment, please have a look at these important threads posted here. They will explain a lot about how the forum runs, from the rules and regulations to frequently discussed topics to the background on some of our lingo and inside jokes.

      Four-color uses the inks Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black to simulate all of the other colors. If you look at the Sunday color comics with a magnifying glass, you'll see a pattern of dots using those four colors.
      This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

              Yes, well a report. I want to be a graphic designer when I get older and I am doing a report on the career. I understand photoshop and illustrator, and I really haven't talked about indesign yet. I was looking at job requirements for graphic artist and that's when I saw, needs thorough knowledge of 4 color production, so I had always thought that was more of a printing process rather than something a graphic artist uses? I'm confused.

                Graphic artist? Or graphic designer. Print designer or Web designer?

                Graphic designers tend to print things sooner or later. Printers for the most part use CMYK inks. You have to know how and when to use them.
                And when not to.
                Not every print process is CMYK.
                Not every CMYK printer wants CMYK imagery.
