    I've been exploring more with minimalism, but still trying to keep things logical. This is a 11x17 cover for a recent undergrad project I've been working on. Does it work? Why or why not? The blue wacked...

    Now i have no real experience working with clients but in my opinion you did what most designers should do. You are being hired as a designer not an artist. Its our job to create work that makes sense....

    I really like the aesthetic.

    Will you do more in the series? You could have a different design for different departments.

    Cool idea but I'm not convinced that font will work in every situation. Can they remove Comic Sans from all government computers? That would be a nice start.

  • Photoshop? -or- Quark?

    Hey Everyone,

    Just a quick question. I'm at work right now and they are looking to purchase some design software. The 2 we are looking at are Photoshop CS and Quark 6.1. Basically I'm looking for feedback as to why purchase one over the other. The main function will be to edit photos, and create print/web images.

    Thanks

    I don't believe you can edit photos with Quark. Quark is a layout program. Unless something changed with 6, I believe I am right. Photoshop is by far the way to go if editing photos is what you are looking for. Hope this helps!

      I was thinking the same thing, but I'm still using Quark 5 so I can't be 100% sure either.

      Seriously, though, I can't imagine why Quark would try to make such a drastic change in version 6 when they haven't even sorted out the bugs they have already!

        Both pieces of software are entirely different creatures. You cannot effectively create webpages or print pages with Photoshop, but you can with Quark. You cannot edit photos effectively with Quark, but you can with Photoshop.

        To be entirely effective, you need both.

            Actually they are totally different, but if I were to choose, I would say go for photoshop, and yes you can do webpages in it, and edit photos, and place text.....

              Thanks to everyone. EV, nice analogy. I've had extensive experience with PS, but not so much with Quark. Sadly most of this office has never heard of Quark, except for the sales guys who don't use Photoshop, hence the reason for debate. At least now I can explain to them what to buy for what purpose. Thanks again.
