    seamas: I appreciate the suggestions on where to look for more influence. A challenge I keep running into is finding a typeface that is professional and clear for a logo, but still has a steampunk look....

    I really like this new concept, it definitely speaks "messenger" to me. At first I didn't know how to feel about the backwards e but realized it looks good because it's like they are facing...

    I would say J2 is working the best so far, I like that logo. I would just try and find a matching typeface that goes with it, or maybe even the same font, for using on the name below the emblem/pictoral...

    I would tread carefully.

    No one here is going to be actively encouraging a student to freelance. It's usually education first, internship, a few years of full time design work before freelancing....

  • Flash Beginner...best program?

    Hi I am currently designing websites but want to learn how to make flash sites. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what the best program to use is to make flash sites and if anyone knows of a good introductory book...?
    I currently use dreamweaver for my other websites if that makes a difference.


    Thanks a lot in advance!!

            There is Synfig, it's a free 2d vector animation program. I've never used it, so I have no clue how similar it is to Flash, nor do I know it's compatibilities, limitations, features, etc.

            But if you want to learn Flash, then learn Flash. It's the industry standard, so you might as well go for the right program from the beginning.

              Synfig's an animation program - that's not really the same thing as Flash.

              There are other programs to make Flash, but no one uses them, because they're not really any good.

                Like I'd said, I've never used it, SurfPark had it listed as a free Flash alternative in his sig.

                        I found this link...

                        It's an okay program. Pretty decent free Macromedia clone. Kind of hard to learn if you're new to flash.

                          If you're just starting out, get an older version of Flash for cheap. You can get Flash MX for not that much on an auction...

                          Once you have that, I'd say go the online tutorial route. There are a lot of free basic level tutorials out there--some good, some bad, some not even worth being free.
