comment How to decide what type of paper to use for a flyer to hand out at a tradeshow?
Hi there, I've made a small edit to the question title: we can help you understand the differences between paper types and how to choose, but only you or your client will know what type of paper best suits your particular case, so we won't be able to tell you which type to use

comment Which fonts pair well with Aviano?
Also, I'd disagree with DA01 - I'd love it if the briefs I got were this open yet specific! Aviano seems like a good choice.

comment Which fonts pair well with Aviano?
Aviano is quite similar to the more well-known (and, massively over-used, especially in movie posters...) Trajan, so you could get ideas by searching on suggestions for fonts to pair with Trajan, e.g. this thread at Typophile

comment How would you rate this logo-concept for a fiber optic Internet company and how can I improve it?
That's weird, link works fine for me... try http://i.imgur.com/FBOGrps.jpg ... it's not a particularly serious point, just a suggestion of a possible case of "phallic logo syndrome" :)

It might just be my dirty mind, but your first example makes me think of this imgur.com/a/lphHd

@DA01 AKA: lots of small whiteboards that you can move around freely like post-it notes.

comment Testing visual lay-out and concept of interfaces on users before really starting development?
If "working with the developers" at this stage isn't an option it's also possible to make a simple "do people see the right link" testable architecture in an interactive PDF in Indesign: just have elements link to literal pages in the PDF instead of web pages. There are also thousands of (mostly paid) wireframe prototyping tools.

comment Critique: Any advice on the design of my systems engineering résumé?
That sounds fine then - yes, an inconsistent gap would distract more as being strange

comment Critique: Any advice on the design of my systems engineering résumé?
The timelines confused me a little since there's only one item on each one. Joining them together might confuse/mislead since it would like like a timeline organised by time when actually it's organised by category. I'd drop it until there's multiple items on each timeline.

comment Make an index where “cat” also refers to “cats”
Interesting question, I know there are loads of scripts out there that try to address shortfalls in InDesign's indexing, but am not sure if any do synonyms. If your case is just simple plurals, you could maybe cheat and put find-change in a zero-width whitespace character (discretionary break, maybe?) between cat and s so to the machine it's cat s but to a reader it looks like cats - but you'd also need to make sure it was non-breaking (character style maybe?) so you don't end up with cat at the end of one line and s at the start of the next.

do you mean the grey folded / creased / scrunched-up paper effect? or the pattern on the photo?

comment How do I use the unstyled icons in the Action Bar Icon Pack?
Yeah it just means they're neutral (plain black) so you can add whatever styling you want to fit the design of your app. You could do this in a design program or code (e.g. SVG attributes or CSS or something Android-specific).

Just checking: the document colour mode is definitely RGB? Not CMYK?

comment What tools would Monks use when DESIGNING a large illuminated letter or pattern?
No problem, I imagine any other illumination of any other style would have the same issue! Just clarifying that it's the general approach to desiging illuminations not any one particular style or technique

comment What tools would Monks use when DESIGNING a large illuminated letter or pattern?
Great question, I've always wondered about things like this. That particular example has a lot of celtic patterns, is that intentional or incidental? Just that celtic patterns could be a whole question on its own.

comment What's the typography used by “Pride of Gypsies”?
A good way to judge if something is a font or handwriting is to look for repeated characters and see if they match. There are two ss in gypsies and one in toujours and they're all different, as are the es in pride and gypsies, so it's almost certainly hand drawn. There might be similar fonts out there, though.

comment How is this product box with windows / hologram effect created?
?? Packaging design is 100% a legit branch of graphic design. Good question
