    Reply to Typographic Experiment for a School Project
    Looks nice, but it's hard to read. How big of a problem the legibility issue might be might depend on the rest of the booklet.

    Yeah, I agree with PrintDriver, you'd be running headfirst into intellectual property violations. Big consumer-oriented companies, like the two you mentioned, have a serious interests in controlling their...

    Comment on Mentor or college degree?
    I did briefly look at them, which is why I said what I did. It really does depend on what you want from life.

    Both seem like good schools, but they're very different in both size, focus,...

    Reply to Mentor or college degree?
    A PHD in graphic design is kind of a running joke between a few of my design buddies and I. Like it has been mentioned above, choose based on the body of work coming from students in a program, not what...

  • No-Ghost Logo Problems

    Hey there! So I've been trying to make a ghostbusters (No-Ghost) vector image with a transparent background but I cant get it to work More specifically, me and my girlfriends are trying to make the the ghost be giving the shocker with one hand (I know it seems weird, we wanted to do it for shirts we plan on wearing to the bar for a friends party as a joke). I really dont have too much know-how on these things, but I know its possible. Could anyone help me out with some directions?

    What software are you using, and how are you saving the file?

    Oh, and while I'm at it, do you have permission from Sony to use the logo?

    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.

      I don't really understand this. If the image really is vector (which means it was done in Illustrator or Corel Draw), then it will automatically have a transparent background. Unless you physically put a white box behind it.

      If you're doing this in Photoshop, it's not vector.

        No we don't have permission from Sony to use it, but its just for a private event in house, nothing out in public. And @garricks, I was trying to use gimp to do it, but I cant seem to figure out the program. Like I said, Im REALLY bad at this lol. Is there a program out there that is maybe more user friendly that anyone could recommend? I'm pulling my hair out over this, haha

          Maybe you should just say No.
