    I also vote keep it BUT I think you should consider bumping it down a few point sizes to soften it's intensity a bit.

    I would also suggest you revisit the kerning and consider joining some...

    The period, to me, makes it more of an assertion rather than a suggestion. I know that's not what that's used for (technically speaking) but it makes it pack a little more punch.

    I vote to...

    I agree, the Canoscan is a good scanner -- especially for the price. I've bought a couple of Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanners for work, and would do so again if they're still made. They've been very...

  • Brochure Book?

    Hello guys!!
    Thanks god I found a very nice design forum. Awesome!!!

    My problem:
    Im going to buy some books at amazon. And Im having problems to find a nice book of brochures. I looking for a inspiration book and not a "how to...book". Im looking for more "graphic solutions" inspirations than new creative papers,inks, "special emboss". I mean, a book that would help me when I get stuck, freezed, without ideas how solute a (layout) problem.

    I already found one book, but I really not sure if this is the best book around.

    The book that I told.
    The Best of Brochure Design 7 (the number 7 is cheaper than 8)
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/159...lance&n=283155

    Thanks for your attention!!

          @ distruktor: Very good hint! And the good news is 7 is cheaper . (ah! very nice site, waiting to see your portfolio).

          Guys,
          I work with low money clients, and I was thinking specially with design/graphic/layout solutions for small brochures (z-fold, gate-fold, tri-panel). Because they havent money to spend with special colors or papers. Mainly good solutions come from my creativity (graphic organization, layout...).
          Im writing this because I put my hands on "The best of Brochure Design 6" and I"ve found several good solutions for large brochures. One of them, for example: in the left page a picture and in the right, a blank page with a little box with text. But this kind of solution is almost impossible to me. I have a lot of information to put in a page, put photos, maps... So... that book is not too useful to me. Can you understand me? If I found a book that shows small brochures and folders, would be better. A better "shoot".

          In resume: a book with nice layout and graphic solutions when you have a lot of information (text and photos) to put in a small piece of paper.

          I hope you understand me.

          Thanks!!
