    I've come to the conclusion that most design instructors are just dabblers in the real world of design. When it comes right down to it, most are teachers, not professional designers.

    Are you charging money for your service and targeting certain sites?

    As for blogs, I wish there was a way to remove those from internet search...

    Ugh... Banded blue to white gradients. I'll give you hint on that. Illustrator and Indesign stink at gradient algorithms in certain colors. Create it in photoshop instead at the appropriate resolution....

    Thanks PrintDriver,

    I do plan on consulting with an attorney once I find one within my constrained budget. I'm in Canada if you can recommend a service - but that's off-topic so feel free...

    I am not sure on these books,but my advice is the more the better. Take a look at your college program book list. And check out some websites like chapters graphic design section. Basically if your are thinking about graphic design, stick with the books that are more about designetc. compared to the history and nitty gritty stuff, this way you can see if it is what you want to do. here is a post on this about some stuff:

    my advice Read all you can and try to do as much as you can to see if it is really what you want to do before you go to college. Best of luck
