  • Starting out..what to get..CS Premium or CS Standard?

    Hi folks. I was just wondering for someone starting out in graphic design (print), would it be better to get the CS suite Premium (with GoLive and Acrobat), or would the Standard suite (without GoLive and Acrobat) suffice? I just wanted to start off first learning print before getting into the web too much. Still, I also wonder if getting the Premium would be better in the long run. I'm also trying to save money if I can (lol). Any thoughts or opinions on this would be most welcome.
    Thank you all for your time.

    Sincerely,
    Joe

    Get the Premium.
    Having Acrobat is DEFINITELY worth it.

          Draw it as stroked arcs. Pathfinder does far more than connect or unite shapes. It also divides, crops and cuts with a mask. You want to divide everything then unite back together the bits so it looks...

          You are emphasizing teeth.
          Your doubled text is de-emphasizing the company name.

          Pathfinder as PD said. Create all of your shapes (don't worry about over and under yet) ... then select all and divide, then grab the "bits" that need to be connected and unite them.

          Feels very separated. No cohesiveness. It reads more like a poster than a logo.

          The advice I got when I was in art school over 20 years ago was "don't stay here." But by the looks of the maps PD posted, there are very few places to relocate to.

          It's not impossible...
