    I'm running Windows 8.1 on a high-end computer. Suddenly the drop-down list of fonts in Illustrator CC has changed! Many or all of the fonts I need, are missing, and there are lots of other fonts in...

    There are holes in my knowledge. I am quite disorganized. I'm severely dyslexic... so when I run into a roadblock, I just do whatever I can to get around it... even if it means using something like...

    I'm curious what you do for business?
    Do you charge for your services and do you pay your employees a living wage?
    Think about that as you hire young designers that could use the money...they...

  • Live Format/Border. Confused!

    Hey there!

    I have a short question.

    I have the assignment to do an artwork on following format.
    --
    Format: 22.75 inches x 35 inches

    Attention: 1" border on the format so
    Live format: 20.75 x 33 inches
    --

    Is the 1" border meant as a bleed box?
    1" would be to much, wouldn't it?

    Thanks!!

    It sounds like you are talking about a LIVE AREA, which is 1" in from the trim, meaning you shouldn't have text or important information outside of this area, think of it like an obligatory 1" margin.

    EDIT, It could also be referring to a portion covered by a frame, so the mechanical size is 22.75 x 35, but the visible size is 20.75 x 33, in which case you may want to give yourself an even bigger margin.

      Great, thank you so much!

      Is 22.75 inches x 35 inches a standard format in US? In germany its pretty uncommon...

      PS: The artwork is for a studio in Chicago where I will do my internship in summer. So i want to do everything right. I have to deliver the project tomorrow

        I can't help you there, I'm in Canada, its an odd size IMO, but then again some OOH ad spaces are weird sizes (and shapes)
