comment How do students practice using fonts when they can't afford them?
@Chiara I used to work with a designer who only used two dozen weights of Helvetica plus one serif. For everything. He was one of the top designers in the shop.

@RadLexus Calibri is a horror of mediocrity and I cringe every time I see it. I don't care who designed it.

comment Copyrights regarding world maps
Where are you getting the "open source" maps? Do they have any fine print associated with them which explains what license the creator has given?

comment How to design an address book in adobe indesign?
If you Google those numbers, they seem to turn up real results. I strongly suggest blurring them anyway even if you are not the source of the photo.

comment Should I put all font weights and widths on my brand guidelines?
Of interest, even though it's on a different stack: I described in great detail what I put into a 150 Corporate Standards style guide, including fonts: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/2589/…

comment How Should Adobe Bridge Be Used?
@AK, Yes, "sye-lowed" (long I, like a grain silo) is a different term than "sih-lowed" (short I, short for silhouetted). When you say it out loud it's instantly obvious that it's not the same concept.

comment Between these two designs, would you consider this plagiarism?
If you're talking about the triangle, that's a fairly well-known optical illusion, and "white on black" can't be trademarked. I wouldn't call it plaigiarism.

comment What are the different stroke widths (e.g. in a W) in serif fonts called, and why do they have a particular orientation?
I would love to see a font with all the stresses flipped, like your second image. It's so creepy!

@MarcusPorter OP means "original poster" — the person who asked the question, in this case you. :)

@DA01 I agree that "no contract=stuck" is not a global or hard-and-fast rule, but here you have a newbie designer and an aggressive, intransigent client. Could the OP argue this in court? Sure. Would it be worth it? IMHO no.
