comment Best symbol for store location?
If it's a "Find my store" map, then the stores should be the only things on the map that stand out (with more muted navigation aids like street names). If it's the only thing on the map that stands out, and users are already expecting the map to show store location, it really doesn't matter what the pins look like: so the simpler and cleaner they are, the better.

comment Is providing only minimal contact details bad for freelance designers?
I think the simple answer to the question of where's the right balance between nice minimalism and functionality is that old Einstein (?) quote: "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler"

comment Is providing only minimal contact details bad for freelance designers?
Personally, I don't trust website contact forms, and I think I'm not alone. I expect them to not work. When it's the only available mode of contacting someone, I'll (in order) 1) put these people to the back of the list, expecting them to be out of business or not serious, 2) use google trickery to see if they have an email address or phone number listed anywhere e.g. on directory or social network sites, 3) ask myself if I really want to contact these people, 4) write a very short message in the contact form and forget about them, expecting to never hear from them.

comment Best fonts for improving reading experience
Question seems fine to me - it's not "What font do you recommend", it's "How to choose a high-readability font for a website" - heaps of criteria.

comment New generation of 'Edit' icon that is not a pencil?
One of the classic difficulties in icon design is that you need to think the other way round: the thought process needs to be image ⇒ concept, not concept ⇒ image. You can go from "Edit" to ∞ via the fact that things can be edited ∞ times - but does it go the other way? I doubt that someone seeing a ∞ would think "Okay, ∞, infinity... hmm... what can be done infinite times? I know, editing!"
