    The name is "Wide Eye" hence why it is in the center. I was going for a minimal look. Look around you, no new innovative companies have graphic heavy logos. It is a logo not a picture.

    There are a lot of reasons that freelancing doesn't work well when you're new to the profession, but the most fundamental one is that no one knows you. Most successful freelancers are designers who worked...

    The contest sites definitely won't be of any use in getting clients.

    I hate to say it, but getting good clients is the toughest part of this profession. I still pick up some freelance work...

    Thanks for the warning. Digitizing a font is not a crime and happens all the time with those who do revivals ...especially blackletter and more modern stuff like from the 20th century. Having said that...

  • Removing suffixes

    Hey guys!

    I've been asked to research into removing the suffixes from domain name url's. I honestly can't remember how to do this, feel I've lost my bloody memory!

    How do I remove the suffixes from the end of domain name pages again, like .html for example?

    Many Thanks!!!

    there are several ways to do it.

    if your site is just html -- not php or .NET, you can simply make folders inside your root directory for each page you want.

    for instance, if you have a 3 page site consiting of a homepage, an about page, and a contact page:

    homepage is index.html in the root folder
    there is an "about" folder in the root folder
    inside of the "about" folder lives it's own "index.html"
    this will make it so that it is
    the same goes for /contact/ -- a folder inside of the main root folder named "contact" with it's own "index.html" inside of that.

    if you are using PHP or .NET however, it is different. you can google search "php clean urls" or " clean urls" for more information on those, but here is a pretty comprehensive PHP clean urls tutorial using mod_rewrite:

      You can do the folder trick with PHP or ASP. The problem I have with this is it's easy to get confused in your text editor when all your files are named index.php.

        You can do with the htaccess file.
