comment What is the highest possible print resolution in book publishing?
This is incorrect--in a way. The DPI of a typical piece of film/plate is 1200dpi. The line screen will obviously be much lower, but if there is line art and text, you will want that at 1200 dpi.

comment Why are raster images still used when vector images have so many advantages?
It's kind of like asking why we have both oil paintings and ink drawings. Different media for different reasons.

@Amphiteóth thanks for the clarification. That makes sense!

comment Material design: text color settings
I can't make heads nor tails out of that blurb from Google. It doesn't make any sense how they wrote that. As such, I'd choose what looks right to you. Guidelines are just that...guidelines. If you have reason to change them, go ahead.

Removing the foot note that appears personal, but wasn't written by the OP.

comment How to handle freelance designers that fail to meet expectations?
This isn't so much a graphic design question as it is a vendor question. If vendors don't meet your expectations, you either work with them to find a compromise, or you drop them as a vendor you work with.

comment What is the name of the font used in this logo?
To be clear, I'm saying Dolphian looks like a rip-off of Delphian.

comment How do you present interactive webdesign?
Axure has good points, but I've found using it to design interactions creates a minefield of problems. You end up with interactions that aren't quite right and developers who then try to copy interactions that aren't quite right to begin with. That said, as long as everyone agrees that every interaction in Axure will be completely redesigned when in code, it can produce some interesting insights.

comment How do you present interactive webdesign?
@Chuck I can't speak for Vincent, but have a hunch his point would be the same as mine. You can't reliably present the interaction outside of the medium it will be built in. At best it'd be an approximation and I've found that can cause more problems than it solves. Ideally, you'd get interactions into the final medium ASAP.

comment Editing a logo in A1 format and EPS format
Oh, but that said: Why do you want to edit the logo? Ideally, you hire a designer to give you the best option. A that point, you hopefully never have to edit it.

comment Editing a logo in A1 format and EPS format
If you use Inkscape, ask if you can get an SVG or PDF version which may be easier to open than the EPS.

@Matt nah, that's fine. I think we've covered this several times already.

comment How do graphic designers backup all tools?
This is not a good answer, so leaving it as a comment, but I actually don't carry over. I start fresh--including tools and fonts. I find it breaks habits I have fallen into subconsciously ("oh, look, I'm using the same typeface in every logo I create" kind of habits.)

Also, you can't really 'upsize' images with any quality. So if you want to create 2x and 3x images for retina displays, start with a 3x image. Then downsize to 2x and 1x as needed. Note that depending on the type of images we are talking about, there may be no need to create 2x and 1x versions as you can just have the browser handle the downsizing of the 3x images automatically for you. If we're talking flat icons, there may be very little file size difference between 1x and 3x.

comment How to determine a matching color code from a physical sample?
@skmasq only if you know how you're going to be printing the menu already. For example, if you know you will be using uncoated stock, then you'd specifically want the Uncoated Pantone swatch book. Keep in mind, however, that you likely won't find an exact match (unless the wallpaper happens to be using Pantone ink as well). And that shouldn't matter. No one is going to hold up a menu to the wall and notice a brown a shade or two off in a dim restaurant.
