    JB
    This is a new issue for me. I've placed specified cells from an excel spreadsheet, but the linked table isn't showing up in the links panel. Any advice?

    Still too detailed to be icons or logos. Simplify.

    The second and third logos are my personal favorites. I like the way you incorporated the school book into the door of the barn for both designs, though I feel like the third one feels a little less cozy...

    I was just curious. I don't work on that kind of design ever.
    I kinda figured I was more "private" than most of the world when it comes to handing out my email address and receiving what...

  • good design books for less than $10?

    I have approximately $7 left on my Barnes & Noble gift card. Any good design books available for less than $10?

    www.half.com probably has a plethora of them, as well as your local used bookstore. Old graphic design textbooks are easy to find cheap, etc...

    But, as for a new book at B&N, wouldn't it be cooler to get $7 off a $50 book? The only thing that comes to mind (other than an issue of Print, CMYK, HOW, Layers, etc...) is Strunk & White's "The Elements of Style" because knowing how to write will take you further than you think in this ADHD age of non-communication and substituting "why" with "y" because typing 3 letters is just too darned hard.

      You can get a magazine for $7 bucks.

        Actually my original background is writing.

          no, but doesn't B&N have a Starbuck's onsite? I'm not into supporting major conglomerates, but I can't seem to unhook my Caramel Machiato intervenus-drip. And you can almost buy 2 for $7... it means you could take a friend!
