    "but I have always been led to believe that the degree isn't as important as talent/know-how in graphic design..."

    Here, without a degree, it's not likely anyone will ever know...

    We don't even consider applications that don't list a degree where I work, though even people with degrees can have terrible portfolios. Out of probably 30 applicants from our most recent opening, maybe...

    Honestly, if you are unsure, it's better to under design. People who are new to design have this tendency to put everything they can think of into a design. Design is just as much about culling and restraint....

    We have a $250,000 digital printer and the backups can be up to 2mm out. That is within specifications.

    So the answer is no. It's near impossible to get a printer that is bang on. Which is...

  • Designorati

    I stumbled upon some interesting information about a new site called Designorati. It is brand new, so there isn't a ton of stuff but it looks like something we should keep our eye on.

    It is broken down into some good categories:

    Cartography, Creative Culture, Desktop Publishing, Graphic Design, Illustration, In-House, Strategy, Typography, Web Design and 360 Blog.

    I find the desktop publishing section especially interesting and will be following that one. I think this is going to build into a good resource.

    Who sponsors it? I couldn't tell thru all the trash.

      Designorati evolved out of the Yahoo Group "Graphic Design Resource Group" (that I have been involved in for some time) with a group of people that are involved in a variety of forums, blogs, groups and web sites related to design. It's a great group of people - and they are just getting things going.

                Hi

                The site isn't officially launched yet, but it is online to get some first impressions and test a few things. I just thought I'd let you guys know.

                      Hi!

                      Thanks to both Only Seen here and Neuro for the warm welcome. I registered here when the forum was different I believe, but I never had the time to come around.

                      Yesterday I decided to actually come and visit here often and what do I find? A thread about Designorati.

                      So, yes, I will hang around, I am sure I'll get a lot of good info here.

                      P.S.: I am glad to see the feedback
