comment Will typeface design ever “stop”?
Arial was designed as a replacement for Helvetica and Times New Roman was designed for newsprint. Neither was actually designed specifically for screen usage (and tend to not be great options for that).

comment What style would you say this cassette tape packaging is?
Late 60s through early 80s. It's no particular style other than perhaps "bold and geometric" with heavy use of plain sans-serif type.

comment When working remotely is incorrect decision?
There's a hint of something interesting here, but we need a lot more details to really understand what you are asking.

comment What's the best logo choice for a robotic toy company? Where can I get feedback on my design?
You are asking us to take a survey. That's not a question suitable for this site.

comment What's common starting point to designing an icon set
This is simply too broad of a question and mostly opinion. There's no one answer to this. For me, I start with a need for a particular icon and build from there. As for tools, that's really more of a personal preference. Also, don't put too much weight on grids. They can be useful, but can also just get in the way.

comment Creating graphics in bulk with minor variances
I don't know what the final format needs to be but if these are on-screen graphics, this would be fairly easy to do with javascript.

comment Proper term for a font with the same thickness for all strokes?
@Scott yea, I'd call it a duplicate. Essentially asking the same thing: What terms do I need to find the font I want on MyFonts? :)

comment Profile to use for JPG used on TV screens
Are these LCD TVs? If so, they likely were installed with the picture pre-set to look overly saturated/bright (common for 'showing off' the TV in a store). I don't think there's a particular profile or that it's JPGs causing the issue...you just need to adjust your images accordingly to fit the particularities of the color and picture settings of these TVs.

@Scott the edit makes this a duplicate question. Give me a minute to find the duplicate...

comment Will typeface design ever “stop”?
I don't agree that it will ever be a 'science'. It's art. We've been classifying typefaces since the beginning of moveable type, and yet we still can't reach a consensus on how to do it, and likely never will. Which is part of its charm, IMHO.

comment What can be done to preserve the history of digital design?
@MarkMussler that preserves the file, but not necessarily the ability to open it in the future. Software can be as ephemeral as hardware.

While you may love to see that work, I wonder if they would want to show off their pre-famous work. :) (Though I agree, as a historical artifact, it's very important). Makes you wonder if the reason we have a lot of their work is simply because it was mostly analog.

comment What can be done to preserve the history of digital design?
I think this is a really fun question but I don't know that it's really about graphic design. It's actually a much larger topic that speaks to digital media in general.

comment Which color space should be used for a logo?
They will be different colors. There's no way around that. But it's a judgement call by the designer, in the end.

comment What is the best page size, in pixels, for a PDF to be read on iPhone?
It doesn't really matter as PDFs zoom-to-fit. Just consider the aspect ratio and choose a font size that isn't too small.

comment Which color space should be used for a logo?
@julmot the advantage is that you can print more colors with pantone than CMYK and (often) you'll have a more consistent result across multiple printers. But in the end, if your client doesn't need Pantone, that's OK. CMYK is fine.

comment Proper term for a font with the same thickness for all strokes?
There's no specific term for this, but some terms that might help would be 'monoline', 'low contrast', or, based on your example of the 8, 'LCD'. Alas, there's no one right answer to this question, so I don't think it's a suitable SE question. I would suggest taking those search terms to MyFonts.com to find a whole bunch of options, though.
