comment What factors make a campaign go viral?
So you're looking for ideas for a viral ad campaign which will attract the attention of coders and will go viral in the PHP community? If that's right, we don't do project-specific brainstorming, it's too much like free work, but you could edit the question to be more about general info and knowledge e.g. what are the key ingredients to an ad campaign going viral in a particular demographic like coders.

comment Why are Apple Macs used so much in the graphic design industry?
I think Macs did have one advantage in the early 2000s - they were the first to only crash one application at a time. PC designers could have a doc's layout open in InDesign, placed graphics open in Illustrator, edited photos open in Photoshop, then they'd open a Word doc to copy some text, Word would crash bringing everything else down with it, and they'd lose all their recent work in everything. Then Windows sorted that out (can't remember which version), and the differences have been tiny ever since.

comment iPad in Graphic Design: actual usage
Some people swear by the painting app Procreate as a way of sketching ideas, and I've heard of kickstarter projects trying to make sort-of pressure sensitive styluses to work with apps like Procreate. Though, if your problem is an expensive device that doesn't fit your workflow, maybe selling the device is better than twisting your workflow to fit around a device that doesn't fit it.

comment Would this use of initials in a logo be considered plagiarism..?
I think you've got a strong case - the main similarity is because both logos play on characteristics of the letters L and B. Luka Balic doesn't own the fact that L matches the bottom left corner of B - it's probably not a "protectible element". However, it combined with the distinctive bumps of the Bs is uncomfortably similar - if you wanted to play safe, you could adjust the top bump of your B. See also: Is it plagiarism if my logo looks similar to an existing one?

comment Why are Apple Macs used so much in the graphic design industry?
Six years ago, if you asked me for Mac and Windows pros and cons, free "Gill Sans" and "Lucida" would have been genuine big plus points for Mac. But recently MS have got very good on the typography. Those aforementioned are finally looking dated while fonts like Calibri and Segoe amazingly still look pretty fresh despite nearly a decade (!) as a default font. I can't think of anything fresh from Apple on the typography front in the last 10 years

comment How can I reduce the aliasing that occurs around my custom icon web font when it is scaled?
There might be some font-specific tricks (something to do with hinting maybe?) but failing that, might it work better if you get them pixel-perfect at 16px? 16 is much more divisible than 14 and any whole-pixel increase can be done in 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 etc etc which might be cleaner than the odd fractions from 14

comment Do you know what font this is?
Yeah the GM is Gill Sans with a stroke applied (hence the flat-bottomed centre of the M), then squashed a little horizontally. The rest is various flavours of Gill Sans stretched or squashed. The R is another distinctive one

comment What is the most attractive number less that 100?
You'd be best off finding a site used by marketing experts or about advice for startups, this isn't part of a designer's expertise. (also, don't forget that even if you find the perfect number, app stores are international - so the majority of would-be customers will see a different auto-converted number in their own currency).
