    A consistent branding label at the top with different illustrations beneath the consistent top part somehow equals a copyright violation? What am I missing here? Perhaps I'm missing the point.

    Not much going right here, sorry. Yes you need a hierarchy so the reader knows what to look at and in what order. Consider a background to tie it all together?

    Confused. Is this the existing logo or one you have redone?
    There are several Bread We Break churches, which is yours? Can you provide a link?

      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.

              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.
