Branding and UX designer. Obsessive typophile. Color theory junkie. I spend my days mediating the treaty between logic and creativity.

You can always outline the strokes so everything is a filled shape.

comment What are the basic rules of “flat design”?
We've seen related questions before (see my following comment). The problem is that you're question is just "how do I design without lots of superfluous effects?". That's more like a design course than an SE question.

comment How to create a 3D effect in Inkscape as required by the Android Design Guidelines?
It would be best if you posted your tutorial here (at least an abridged version).

comment Is it acceptable to use different but similar typefaces for print content and web content?
Cufon is dead. Use well-designed web fonts and you'll be surprised at the level of consistency. Try a good commercial outfit like Typekit if you're nervous.

comment Is there a free 'Helvetica Neue' alternative?
The best thing about Roboto is that it's more like Univers than Helvetica ;)

comment How to Best Create Templates for Clients to edit the content/copy
IIRC, I created a Word doc with styles in place and mapped those styles to my InD styles on import. When I updated the link, it held the mapping.

comment How to Best Create Templates for Clients to edit the content/copy
I've used linked Word files via Dropbox in the past. No WordsFlow, but it was good enough for me. Dropbox rules. Word, not so much.

Side note: Creative Market is from the same guys that created Colour Lovers.

comment Why do yellow and red look good together in this photo?
Extra points for the black interior. Better combo. What does Tarantino know? I'm a Mopar man myself, but yellow and black in any brand is fast. And for the record, that is yellow, not orange as others implied. You guys must be wearing tinted glasses or something.

@JohnB I hope my extended answer provides greater context for what I was getting at. Now you should go buy the book ;)

comment I need suggestions for an 'undelete' icon
I hinted at it above, but let me come right out and say it ... Use words: "Restore", "Undelete", "Undo".

comment How can I display extra information in a table?
This is really more of a UX Design question in my mind. My vote is to send it that way for more extensive feedback. You'll want to craft your question in a broader way like "how to best present additional table data" so it's not too specific to your application.

If you must have an icon, try this query at IconFinder.

comment Is there a quick way to prep an illustrator file with tons of strokes and fills for screen printing
@Blake is asking about screen printing so I would assume it's white and green on a blue surface.

Let's just call it OCR-A and move one ;)

comment Is the OCR-A sans-serif?
Because monospace invites such heavy distortion it is often treated independently. Some faces manage to pull it off with a pretty good imitation of true sans or serif, but not here. Those are slab serifs, BTW, not to be confused with cross bars seen on t and f.
