comment iPhone 5s, 6, 6 Plus design confusions around dimensions, resolutions and densities
You should maybe take a look at the iOS Guidelines: developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/UserExperience/…

comment How I can make this design?
With practice, patience, trial and error. "Hard work" basically. If you run into issues when you are working on it you are welcome to ask about it here.

comment How do I italicize fonts that don't have an italic variant in Illustrator?
Impact Italic does not exist to my knowledge. But your use of "italicize" implies that you are used to Microsoft Word, which automatically slats every font, which is not recommended at all.

comment What's the height of the iPhone 6+' navigation bar?
No, it should be 44@3x, not 88px.

comment How should I position the letters in a square logo to read “H S S C”?
Because it's hip to do so of late. Just google "hipster logo".

comment Optimal font color on #fff body (esp. mobile, web fonts)
I think there is no definitive answer to this. As you have stated, you have your own opinion what looks good. and it will depend on the font and on the context. Higher contrast has it's benefits and downsides and the same goes for low contrast. So "optimal" only exists in a context of a specific use-case.

comment Should I upconvert low-res images to 300dpi for printing?
"The problem with this is many of the images will then be much smaller than their target print size." This is why there is a warning. While that is the correct method, it shows you that the material you have is maybe not suitable for print.

comment HD Video Still (1920x1080, 72dpi) upscaling resolution for banner use (6x2.5 metres)
You don't lose quality, the quality stays exactly the same. And there is no work around either as you can only show the information/pixels you have.

comment What do you call this distorted text effect and how can I reproduce it?
I'd call that a text illustration. What have you tried to achieve this specific effect? Where have you failed?

comment Can I Illustrator Symbols with editable text that does not update all instances?
It is possible. Does your text get converted to vectors? I am unsure what the problem is.

comment Why do my clients hate anything below 12 pt?
There is not one "right" answer but: 12 looks good on screen, so if they look at it only on a screen they will feel that this is a good choice. Secondly, 12 was default for MS Word if I am not mistaken and people got used to it. Thirdly: people who have to judge on font sizes for the first time (or any design decision) tend to go with what they feel is least risky. Ergo, bigger logo, bigger text, boring colors.

comment How do I get the client to see his files (PDF) the same colours as it will print?
Since you cannot control the screen it is being viewed on and calibrating their screen is not always an option the only way is to print and send it.

comment How do you explain the value of native files to an uneducated client?
First, open source and free source code aren't the same thing. And, a contract is exactly what I mentioned in my answer, so I don't really understand your question.

comment Photoshop cc - how do i resize a box and keep the radius the same?
I don't think a lengthy process of scaling up this box has any benefits compared to simply drawing a new one in the size you need with the radius you need. Which would only take a few seconds.

warm colors are warm? Photshop has photofilters called "warm". That may be a start?
