I'm a UI Developer living and working in Salt Lake City, UT.

My interests include Graphic Design, Photography, and programming.

I have had over 8+ years of experience with Photoshop and 2+ years with Illustrator.

As for computer science I'm familiar with both C# and Java as well as web development (HTML, CSS, JQuery)

comment What do you call one-color concept variations?
Just as a semantic question, can a gray-scale image be considered monochrome?

comment Removing One Part Of A Stroke On A Rectangle In Illustrator CS5
I don't think there's a native setting. You'd have to kind of hack it.

comment If I have a directory of JPEG's, how can I create one long stitched image?
When an image becomes too large you lose certain formats. What is the intended use for this image?

Then I would duplicate the number and give it a stroke.

comment How do I stop Illustrator from snapping to pixel increments?
You can manually move the object to that location. Using the arrow keys will result in a 1px change, meaning if you're working on a partial-pixel level, it will move further than you may want it to.

comment Feedback on my Company's Logo?
Can only reinforce what has already been said. Logo is too complicated (even the first one) and the font is too small and unreadable.

comment Mockups: Coding vs Drawing?
I always get told "sketch your interface,if you do it in photoshop or whatever people will think you're further than you really are. Leave your mockups looking sketchy, just get the basics down so your client knows what to expect and then expand on your UI later."

Edited for clarification. Hopefully this makes more sense now.

comment Is there a way to imitate a pencil or pen in illustrator?
If you're looking for an effect similar to the Graphic Design logo on this website, I would go for using textures on top of your lines to create a more sketchy effect.

(the only reason it isn't identical verbatim is because I edited the other one for grammar and such.)

comment What is the best way to resize things in illustrator?
I wouldn't consider reinstalling my OS the best and shortest solution, but I'm glad it worked for you :p

comment Creating popular mobile app menu/action bar effect in photoshop
Alternatively if you're using layer styles you can use the "gradient overlay" to create that fade-out effect on the bottom in tandem using the blending modes.

comment Tips for a more efficient workflow using Illustrator's Live Trace?
There's certainly things you can slide around and adjust, but in all honesty there isn't one set of options that'll be ideal, it varies from image to image. Personally I've found tracing it myself, while less time efficient gives me more control over the final result anyway. I only ever use live-trace for quick mock-ups and such.
