comment Hero Banner - Responsive Design
Responsive design tends to be minimalist because a) it gained popularity while flat design is/was in fashion, b) it's much, much easier that way and c) it tends to be implemented by UX-oriented design teams which err towards minimalism (every flourish or decorative element needs to be able to prove its objective utility). In theory, you could have a design that was both perfectly responsive, and highly decorated/complex... but you'd be swimming against the tides of fashion, technology and the decision-making processes of most responsive design teams, for little benefit. +1

comment Looking for a font with decorative descenders
I'd be surprised, because "modern, clean" and "decorative" tend to not go together, but it's possible. Can you add some examples of the sort of decorative descenders you are looking for - either a sketch or an example from another font? In particular are you looking for them on caps, lowercase or both?

comment Is there an autosave feature in Adobe Illustrator?
While this is useful, there are a few issues with it: 1) the "pause" you set applies to everything in your Actions palette. It's per illustrator session, so it might also forget what you set it to next time you start Illustrator. 2) Once it starts, it applies to whatever Illustrator file is in focus. You can't apply the action to one file but not another, and only files in focus will autosave. 3) If you set an autosave folder, that becomes the default save folder for the file.

See also How do game designers create graphics for their games? and also the comments under How are sprites and graphics for high end graphic games made?

comment How do I can paint a good design for my game such as game designers that are in google play
I'd guess they're professionally-made games made by teams that include one or more professional game designers. So the answer, depending on how you look at it, would be "spending money" or "years of experience, practice and/or training".

comment Why does Illustrator add zeeros in all units?
What are your language settings? Maybe you have it set to a language that uses , as a decimal point, Adobe forgot about these languages in some update, and now illustrator is storing the number as 12,00 (twelve point zero localised) when saving it, changing that to 12 00 because some adobe engineer told one part of the system to always ignore commas in numbers, and then reads that as 1200... Adobe are pretty terrible with international stuff (for example), so this seems like the kind of mistake they'd make.

comment An error in printed book is my fault: what do I do?
Good answer, just one thing to add: in future, to avoid ambiguity, add something explicitly stating this to all contracts - something like "there will be up to X revisions, revisions beyond the Xth will be charged except where it is correcting a mistake, after all revisions there will be a checking period of X days for spotting mistakes, any mistakes not flagged during this checking period are the client's responsibility". And always have a contract, even (especially) for small projects or with family/friends.

comment What is the name of the font used to make this letter?
@StanRogers add an example of that letter in that font and that will be a good answer!

@Joojaa good fact! :-) The way the modern Korean alphabet works is a little like the above examples too en.wikipedia.org/Hangul

comment What would be the best adobe product for creating wedding stationery?
A good place to start is What are the different applications in Adobe Creative Suite for?. But the short answer is, if you're designing for print, don't a raster (pixel-based) design program like photoshop, use something vector based like Illustrator and InDesign and turn to Photoshop when you need to work with photos.

comment What are these line and dot graphs called?
+1 @Alex they're also sometimes called "network graphs", "node diagrams" and "node-link diagrams". D3 has some great features for creating force-directed graphs, and is an open source library that a coder can use to create them. Example: bl.ocks.org/mbostock/4062045

comment Meaning of Responsive web design
Good answer, might be worth adding the key central idea that unites these technical points: that responsive design is about creating flexible designs that work or adapt themselves to work across a wide range of devices - in particular (but not exclusively) different widths and different resolutions.

comment Landing job as a Graphics and web designer in a Graphics and web designing companies
Front-end development and graphic design are quite different jobs, which are you asking about? Coding HTML, CSS and Javascript, or designing page mockups, layouts and images? Or (less common, but slowly becoming more common) a job that involves both?

Can you add a note about where you saw this text saying "Heybi"? Just so anyone else who sees the same thing could find this question. Thanks for telling us you'd already tried What the Font :-)

comment Help! The Minus Front in illustrator is not working properly!
Very strange! Can you add a screenshot of how it distorts the flattened / no stroke version? Is there anything in the appearances window when these are selected? (thinking there might be a distort effect or something?)

comment Help! The Minus Front in illustrator is not working properly!
Weird... I can't explain why it ends up like that, but you might get better results if you take a copy, outline stroke each element, pathfinder merge, and then do the minus front with normal solid shapes with no strokes. Have you tried that?

comment Image shows blurry in browser at 100%, but not in photoshop!
Yup, there are lots of issues with some Windows browsers having weird default zoom levels on some high pixel density devices. Firefox is the worst because it pretends it's not zoomed in when it actually is. There's some discussion and possible workarounds here - How do you handle client's browser zoom ? tldr; consider doubling image file dimensions while holding image size with CSS, or, using SVG

comment Create a custom stroke with an exact pattern of many different square and rectangular dashes
Can you post an example screengrab of one of your attempts with pattern brushes - the settings used, and how it looked and why it wasn't right? I believe this is possible with the right pattern brush settings, but I don't want to repeat something you've already tried and ruled out.
