    Anything that has multiple pages like a brochure, I lay out in InDesign. For something that is one page, like a poster, either InDesign or Illustrator would do fine. Though, InDesign has better output...

    I guess I'm too immersed in the lower end of the profession. I think B2B advertisers budget less of their income towards marketing than B2C. Or maybe they have smaller profit margins.

    I...

    While you may want to continue working towards an idea you feel strongly about, the blue circle logo in the last example you shared works well - I like its simplicity.

    Sorry, but this is anything but contemporary or rustic. It's very Web 2.0 which is about 10 years out of date.

    You should be designing your logo in Illustrator. No gloss, no bevels, no...

  • Corel X6

    I'll bet this will come as a wild surprise, but I've been using Corel X6 for the last four weeks and it is a complete lemon. Shocking I know.

    Apparently, it's JUST ON MY COMPUTERS, but I can't open 75% of the files done in X5 and most times can't open any files actually saved in X6. It's reduculous. It just crashes.

    It happens on all the computers at work, but my home computer runs it just fine. Figure that out.

    I have sent crash logs to Corel and they are looking into it, but in the meantime we're simply using X5...with all IT'S bugs...

    There are some crazy awesome new tools, but alas... I can't get the f'in thing to even run half the time.

    Just sayin, in case you were going to run out and buy it right away. Wait for SP1 at least.

    Still using Corel huh Key, I think my last version was X3. I kept getting Adobe suites free for reviewing and now I'm stuck with them LOL.

      HOw do you get the Adobe suites free for reviewing? I want in on that!!!

      Keyare, as for the Corel issues... It's been a while, but I remember in the older versions (3-6) I used to have problems where I'd be working, then Corel would crash. When I restarted, my ENTIRE FILE was lost (Actual file was still there, but was blank when I opened it). The "work around"/fix was there was some folder hidden in the Corel folder that holds the temp data. I had to figure out/find the one associated with that file - based off date/time - then delete it. That only worked about 55% of the time, but I had nothing to lose. And like I said, it's been so many years since I used it, I couldn't even tell you where to find the folder... Good luck tho!

        You just have to run a fairly popular and well established online graphic design magazine. About 3 months before CS4 came out they flew me and a bunch of other "journalists" to San Jose for 3 days and let us play around with it.

            I wish I got to play around with 'it' in San Jose.

            So, is this what the GDF is considered by the industry? An online graphic design magazine? Or is there another secret life you lead, oh Kooliness?

              No Bob, the GDF is considered a discussion forum.

                That explains the difficulties I have had in finding a centerfold.

                Thanks.

                    Hi,

                    I'm quite new with using programs such as Corel Draw. I was intended to draw some lines for a general two-dimensional physics diagram, but as soon as I applied new objects, the previous moved away (changed their shape). I don't know if which Options must be modified.

                    For a better imagination I enclosed a snapshot:

                    I would like to thank you in advance for your favourable response!

                    Simon

                      OK, I figured out, I used the connector instead of freehand tool.

                      Tnx anyway.
