    Just to say what a great profession this is. We should count ourselves lucky, don't you think? This is one of the few professions where you can work for yourself from home with very little initial costs up front if that's what you want to do.
    There aren't that many jobs where you can do that. Been doing graphic design since 1970, still going.
    Oh, and I'm looking for a legit copy of Design Standard CS6 Mac if someone has a copy they don't need.

    Hey Howard,

    Welcome to GDF from another veteran.
    Design still floats my boat but I still like to have the odd moan about it on here. ;)

    Thanks Scotty. Yes, seen a lot of changes, especially when Macs came along, a whole new ball game, steep learning curve. My first job in 1970 was producing artwork for food tubs, much the same as today, only then it was all Letraset, Rotrings and gouache. Having to rub down lettering on a curve that when reduced to 4pt had to be on the right radius. Now it's easy.

    Back when designers had balls of steel.
    No "Apple+Z" back then.

    Reminds me of my Foundation Course many years ago. Absolutely loved Gouache!

    Actually I meant Process white, which was an essential tool then amongst lots of other things. Still got a lot of the old kit. Remember the old type Geliot Whitman scales? Ah memories.
