comment How can I do some free design work?
Can you add a bit more to this? Many designers aren't familiar with the open source world. Also, related: How can graphic designers contribute to Open Source projects?

Some related questions: What are some good ways to gain practical experience to add to my portfolio? and Spec-work vs pro-bono?

comment My pen tool won't draw straight paths
What should happen is, you click once, it creates the first point, then you click again somewhere else, it creates the second point, etc. What happens when you click the second point?

comment New generation of Save icon that is not a “disk”?
I like the idea of a dual-purpose icon with a "tick" (just saved) and * (unsaved) state. Maybe there's a better way of visually linking the two states, e.g. reversing them out of a circle or square with cut corner?

An example would help - edit in images showing how it looks in Corel, how the exported image file looks, and then how it looks on your site

comment How to use the info panel in illustrator?
Hey, you're right! For me (on CS6) this only works when rulers are visible (view > show rulers), but with rulers visible, it does switch the info panel to use the currently selected artboard, which is the last one clicked on.

Some crazy person voted to close as "unclear what you're asking", without even bothering to ask for a clarification. That's crazy, it couldn't be clearer what this question is asking. Is someone voting to close at random?!

comment Wall-Sized Canvas Print
While looking for an example print shop who does foam board I found this guide to choosing materials for large-format print jobs, I think you'll find it very useful - supersizeprint.co.uk/materialsguide.aspx?mode=0 - be aware though that this example company's max size for one sheet with no joins is 2.5 meters by 1.2 ( so about 8 feet by 4 feet )

comment Wall-Sized Canvas Print
Wow, I don't know why this question got such a negative response. As the person who answered the "duplicate" I can say that it is NOT the same as this question... that question is extreme, this one is routine. As well as canvas I'd recommend looking into exhibition roller banners (convenient but pricey), or foam board. For checking quality, talk to the print company, they should be very keen to show you samples and to discuss proofing.

comment Which modern software is a decent successor / replacement for Fireworks?
WillAdams this sounds interesting - can you add any comment from experience on what its strengths and weaknesses are in terms of usability as UI design software compared to Fireworks?

comment Which modern software is a decent successor / replacement for Fireworks?
+1 Affinity Designer is really exciting; it's new, but I'm cautiously optimistic that it'll grow into being the alternative to Creative Cloud we've been hoping for.

comment What is this effect called? It has soft rectangular boxes
@Voxwoman Design is often a bit flavour of the week unfortunately... I wouldn't say that style is "out", it just seems not to be the new big thing or mainstream anymore. It's still quite widely used in appropriate contexts (craft products, historic themes, steampunk or hipster culture, etc) but it was 2010-2013 when it was at its peak and cropped up almost everywhere, even in contexts that didn't quite make sense (like random tech products, comms from mainstream brands and media startups)
