    A tender recipe 1 x job tender (many) x man hours of work for visuals & presentation 2 x people to present -1 x head of dept. (who is making the choice on the tender and who leaves without saying a word during the presentation) = waste of time :icon_thumbdown: I accept (begrudgingly)...

    The Furious Thread of Rage!!

    I'm sick to death! Grrrr… :icon_cursing: I'm sick to death of being utterly transparent with clients over costs and have them quibble about the bill at the end. Only in this business can you have someone say, "yes, I would like this and that but at the end I will complain about the size of...

    Photoshop Help - Please!!

    That's a good one I can't really think what else could be the problem. The only thing I could suggest is to send the files for me (or anyone else) to look over. It's a lot easier to diagnose problems with the files…

    text box problem

    Do you want me to look at the file? It's difficult to diagnose by text posts. If you want send me the file and I will take a look. Otherwise, try using the scale tool on the box, reset your prefs or make sure the text boxes are not locked. It will probably be something small like that.

    Quark Xpress

    Old Skool We used both in the studio. It used to be that I worked on Quark for speed, as I'm 'Old Skool' and it used to be the 'Weapon of Choice' in the industry in times past, but now I am just as fast with InDesign. The guys here have different opinions. I love InDesign and use it the...

    Opinions on Tablets

    Wacom Intuos 3 I have had a WI3 for almost two years. I think they make so many tasks easier than using a mouse. Whether you are editing photos, drawing paths, illustrating, they are brilliant. That said, I would never do away with the mouse altogether. I still use the mouse for general use...

    Health and Safety in the Studio

    Let's face it If the worst thing we have to fear in our line of work is a paper cut or scalpel slice, I think we'll be fine and, as a few of you have pointed out, you need the experience to ensure you don't repeat the mistake again. Although that 'spray-up-the-wall' story made me wince. What...

    What you listening to at the moment?

    Mu-sak! We have different tastes (to say the least) in the studio. We do tend to listen to George Lamb on Six Music quite a bit. Today we listened to Kanye West (not normally my type of thing but the new album is a bit dark, which I quite like). I have pretty horrible tastes (Just ask...

    Sprite Re-brand

    The Pepsi one changes depending on the product I believe the 'smile' on the new Pepsi can changes over different products. The diet smile is thinner, Max is fatter, etc.. Did you see the guff that was leaked regarding the development of the Pepsi symbol? Very funny. I mean I like to explore...

    Designers - What's your favourite logo?

    Apple Apple's symbol – I love simple, clean design that is versatile and is instantly recognisable, without the need for any supporting text or imagery. Timeless.
