comment How to create this realistic glossy preview of a business card?
If you've seen those but you're specifically interested in that specific gloss effect, please edit the question to clarify. As you can see there have been a lot of questions already about simulating business cards!

Get it printed, photograph it... If you can't for any reason and you need to simulate printing, have a look at How can I create realistic business card mockups?, and How to make an image look like it's been printed, and How to achieve this 3D “Card” effect, and How to put a design in best light before showing it on Behance or Dribbble

Oh yeah, I forgot about Serif. I've heard they're not bad for the price (never tried it though).

comment Adobe Creative Suite alternative
Corel do have at least one CS-like suite, but their website is so bad I personally couldn't tell you anything about it even though I tried to look into it a few months ago... I eventually gave up in disgust. I remember there were two Photoshop-like programs and I couldn't figure out the difference.

comment What is the Font of the word 'BEST' on the magazine cover?
Looks like they might have used as a base a lighter variant of whatever the "THE ... ISSUE ... STOCKS THAT YIELD" font is, then traced it and adjusted it, copying, pasting and merging the added embellishments. The proportions look quite similar (taking into account that the non-modified version is bolder).

comment Is it OK to use a smaller font size for credentials that come after someone's name on a business card?
I don't know about standard conventions, but if you wanted a way to make them smaller without it looking like you're implying they aren't important, small caps might work. While looking for an example I saw this thread on an almost identical topic on Typophile, might help

comment What Fonts Complement Walkway?
For a font that's "formal and stylistic to me, and nostalgic of the 1920's" (so classic and slightly unobtrusively art deco?) and suitable for body text (i.e. high readability), browsing fonts similar to Avant Garde might be a good place to start. A font like Walkway can work in short snippets like headings, but the uneven letter spacing might make it tiring and effortful to read long paragraphs of it.

comment New generation of Save icon that is not a “disk”?
Nice... but 'Load' looks a bit like 'Share' - like you're pushing it out into the wider world. Maybe if the arrow was straight up or up-left, it would be more like you're loading it for your own use?

comment Similar plugin to GuideGuide for illustrator
It's worth adding that you need to show rulers (cmd-d) first, and then to select the guides to set exact co-ordinates, you need to untick View > Guides > Lock guides

comment When should I use SVG or SVGZ for my web graphics?
If it works, it'll cut file size down quite a lot. This might be useful if you're using interactivity on something complex - e.g. a very detailed SVG world map that is zoomable. The z means gzip compression which is used to cut down file size and pretty much nothing else.
