    Comment on Self Logo Critique

    I'm fully aware that the first logo is black and white, I was commenting on how difficult it is to read at any distance other than on top of it.

    The only versions that are really that legible...

    In the first link, the very first logo is B&W. I think the one with your initials are stronger, but definitely needs some work and tightening up.

    What does your logo say about you?...

    Yeah I meant use the same typeface from the S in the green logo, but if that doesnt work I would keep exploring, fonts are really underrated and people need to spend time finding working fonts to improve...

    Awesome videos Euge... er, Hank. Thanks!

    Q: I'm looking at the sample file that was included with the 'Rules Rule' video. The last example:



    That little glyph there... had me going. I see it's in the glyph set panel--another ID area I've had little to do with. In the Story Editor it appears as a lowercase j. But... it's obviously not. No Styles applied. So, does the Story Editor map the display of Glyphs differently for its display, or how does that work?

      *stops banging head and feeling quite so stupid* *a bit*
      Paragraph Styles and Character Styles, et al Styles are your friend.

      For beginners you can't go wrong with Sandee Cohen Quick Start Guide
      http://www.amazon.com/InDesign-CS5-M.../dp/0321705203

      These are also available for several versions of InDesign - so get the one closest to the version you have.

        Bob - that appears to be Adobe Caslon Pro - in the Glyph Panel there's an arrow beside the lower case "j" click and hold for "Alternate" glyphs.

        The story editor displays just the text - and it is using the letter "j" - so that's what it shows. It's a great way to find out what Letter was used to produce a certain Glyph.

        A lot of fonts have Alternate Glyphs - check some out in Adobe Garamond Pro - for example. There's ornaments, scientific figures - loads of things.


        A lot of well made fonts will have built in alternate glyphs, mostly for ligatures.
