    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...

    @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...

  • who prints black the best (kinkos, copymax, sir speedy...)?

    who prints black the best (kinkos, copymax, sir speedy...)? I'm just looking to get a poster printed and usually for school I go with kinkos just because it's a 24hr business near me...granted thier capabilities are limited, but I do not know their ability to print a nice solid black on a larger sized print like 24"x36" (or even tabloid size for that matter), nor do i know if copymax or sir speedy could do a satisfactory job. So I ask you all, if you had to choose between those 3, who would you go with, for who can print a nice clean black very solid?

    I would specify that the print have no banding (see disclaimer in red below). They may have to run their machine at a slower, higher quality speed to do it and it may cost you extra.

    I would also ask them what a good rich black is so you get full coverage.

    It's up to you to ask for what you want, ask to see sample prints, and pay for a proof - not hope for the best.

    Some of those shops have great techs and good quality printers, others don't. They are franchises with owners of varying skills. If they can't answer the rich black question, move on.
