comment Should design for a specific product across different platforms be consistent with the platform or the product?
I think that used to be one of Mac's strengths (highly consistent UI). But then they released iTunes... :D

@AlanGilbertson true, though less so today. However, the big difference, I think, is a combination of web apps (few web sites share the same UI) and the proliferation of custom UIs on a per-application basis (most notably on mobile). So while users may indeed still primarily use one platform, the UIs on said platform are incredibly diverse.

There is no right answer to this question. Both are valid approaches. Both can be valid approaches for the same project.

comment Unpaid internships: are they worth it?
Do you ever want to work for a financial company? If not, then no, there's likely zero benefit to taking an unpaid internship there.

comment How to view golden ratio guides in Photoshop without crop tool?
always worth noting: That the golden ratio is 'particularly pleasing' and has aesthetic value is mostly just an presumption not backed up with any real data.

comment Ideas for tap indicators for hover effects on responsive design
If you're dependent on hover effects, then the site isn't really responsive.

comment What is this woodcut/engraving like / illustrative design style called? (as seen on the US dollar sign)
Some of the samples do use a guilloche as one of the elements in the design. That said, a guilloche is more of an element of design rather than an overall aesthetic style.

comment Styles of the Lowercase “a”
@sharedphysics I'm not sure that it's more prevalent (or less) in general. If you go to myFonts and look at the most popular, it seems fairly evenly split. Either way, though, it's really just a preference by the type designer.

comment How do you present typeface options to your team during a rebranding
@lustandfury well, it's like picking colors. There's an infinite amount of them, but at some point you just have to start making some decisions and see how they work out.

comment Critique Request: Personal logo. How to achieve a specific effect
FWIW, brackets to communicate 'code' is a bit overdone these days. It's not a bad idea, just something that's been done a lot this past decade or so.

comment Will I lose image quality when editing and re-saving an existing png file?
though it depends on how you've saved it. If it was an 8-bit png, and you edit it adding color outside the compressed pallet, colors may shift as it gets resaved.

@Vincent all design requires manual adjustment if you want the details taken care of. :)

comment Grey is printing out grainy
Are you using gray ink? If not, then you're using black ink, and to make it look gray, they need to create a halftone pattern. Is that what you are seeing? Otherwise, please post a photo for us to see the issue you are talking about.

comment Circle with inner rings of equal area?
Yes, you can draw circles with The Gimp. But you'll have to ask this on Mathematics.se to get help with the math part.
