    Epson pigment inks aren't technically "waterproof".
    Some specialty media are better at trapping pigmented ink than others, so it depends on what you use those inks on, rather than the...

    Have you tried powering down then back on again?

    Probably though it's a poor contact on the pins for the chips. Is one bent or lower than the others?

    First thing I would do is ask your teacher for more clarification. We can only guess what your teacher means with this assignment. You can develop an "entirely new typeface" using another typeface...

  • Question about a certain text/design

    I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to graphic design, so I'm going to start with things like logos and text designs and such.

    I have a question about a certain design, and I'm not sure where to post it, but I thought this might be the best place:

    Now I'm not looking to copy that design, but I was wondering... Does the style of, um... Swirly lines branching from the text have a technical name of some sort? I've seen it before, but I can't for the life of me remember if it's a specific design type, or if it's just a nameless (albeit nice looking) design.

    Once again, I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask.

    Why is it you think that logos and text designs are newb material? Check out Jeff Fisher's writings for the depth involved in logo design. It ain't all just pretty pictures.

      Yup, do a search on flourishes or ornaments.
      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

        Well, I didn't exactly mean to say that I think logos and such are newb material, but I think that is where I'd like to start. Also, thank you very much for the quick replies.

          Check out Jeff's stuff. It will give you insight and ideas.
