comment Make sure the text is always visible as much as possible
If I understand correctly I would use that online contrast calculator to check the contrast of your monochrome color compared to the original version of the color. Adjust the saturation until its a good contrast ratio.

comment How to create text like in this image?
Looks like regular text with white line texture over the white text and black line texture over the gray text. Doesn't look like anything else was done to the actual type except maybe reducing the leading and kerning (line spacing and letter spacing).

comment Why do websites tend to show the content to the left?
It is what Scott said and also considered the "F Pattern" which we have an existing question about that I think answers your question: Should the F-Pattern be considered in all designs?

comment How can I create a punctilio for verifying path width in Illustrator?
@codecowboy Well there you have two options -- one would be planning for the increase in width when doing your design. Or two use the Inside Stroke which can be found on the Stroke Panel.

comment 2D dimensions from photograph
If you know the "distance per pixel of some line" than you should be able to use a ratio to figure out other dimensions. As far as automating that in some program I'm not familiar with one. In school we would often use doors as base measurements because they're a consistent width.

comment How do you deal with clients who bash your designs?
@thelr again - not looking at it right. Take Jim is a car dealership and his friend is Jane. Jane looks at the site and is disgusted. She doesn't hire you. Jim doesn't show your project so Jane never hears of you. She doesn't hire you. Your end result is the same but in the first case Jim paid you and Jane may like the design, maybe she shares Jim's sensibilities and that's why they're friends. Maybe she doesn't and is disgusted. But if he doesn't show it or go with you then Jane will never hear of you to begin with.

@thelr you're looking at it wrong though - if the customer shows your design to others and tells them you did it, that's great even if its not the best design. And your client is happy with it so they're going to talk it up too. However, if you don't do what your client wants they're not going to show it to anybody and be disappointed with the result.... or get a different designer entirely.
