      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.

                    Thanks for the feedback! I'll play with ways to differentiate DC from hue (hyphenation, perhaps?).

                    I am about to graduate college in December and I won't be able to use a lot of the resources that my school has, such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

                    Yeah you're right. Think it might have to do with me being lazy and bad at logo design. Just wanted to do something easy, simple and that looks good.

                    Funny how you mention you didn't want it to read D-Chew cuz that is exactly what I got from it. More so with the first than the second.
