comment Grid-based design in Illustrator — need help setting up a grid!
That system is perfect for basic needs. The trouble I run into is that it's not flexible. Think about something like Villard's diagram. Shapes allow you to create all sorts of wonderful, proportion-based systems.

I would definitely scarf a Scriptographer Supper ;) It is a fantastic tool. I didn't use it every day but when I did there was nothing that could replace it. I still keep a copy of CS5.5 (and CS3) around when I need those tools.

Actually, I should amend that last statement: White does not become transparent in multiply mode, it just won't change underlying color.

Blend modes will essentially achieve selective transparency for you. For instance, #ffffff will render as transparent when the blend mode is set to multiply. Play around and you'll see what I mean.

comment Which graphic design application should I learn after Photoshop and Illustrator?
I've fallen into the trap of watching the board in "recently active" mode and not checking the actual question/answer dates :D

Sorry, I guess I'm not following. I thought you might have found some fun stuff I'm not aware of being a cloud-free customer ;)

Curious how you see InD as having the same capabilities as Illy and Pshop? It's certainly more powerful for layout and type handling, but it's weak in drawing and image manipulation. IMHO, it's pretty terrible for web layout too.

comment What file type should I use for a logo when exporting from Adobe Illustrator?
Good list with one exception: Leave the EPS out. With a vector PDF there's no need for it.

You should certainly learn to make proper use of your Wacom. Just don't let it replace physical media for everything or you'll find you've given up some of the soul in your work.
