comment What is wrong with Comic Sans?
@dumbledad that's a very simplistic description but in essence yes, the uncanny valley is about things not quite being natural... like comic sans, it's imperfect lettering style is designed to make it appear handwritten (natural, human), but features like every character having a repeated form or the letter spacing/kerning etc. make it not quite natural.

comment Best Adobe product for web designing?
Fireworks is unsupported now, Adobe removed it from their lineup because it overlapped with too many other products.

comment Printer wants me to make sure the barcode is “100% black ink (K) on a white background”
Very good point, although I assume the OP is in CMYK given its a print document.

comment How do I get rid of boxes that appear when I create a pdf from InDesign?
Can you take a screen shot? Hold Command + Shift + 4 on your mac keyboard to drag an area to screenshot.

comment “Good Artists Copy; Great Artists Steal” - How can this concept be supported & explained by a designer?
There can be no truly original ideas, because for ideas to exist they must be inspired. Most great ideas are inspired by frustration with the status quo.

comment What is the difference between a designer and an artist?
Hmmm, you might consider it an over-simplification and you're probably right. I've always thought an arrogant concept for any artist to try and define what is or isn't art. However, this topic is seeking a definition and I think one can only be given as a simplified definition. Getting into the specifics of motivation or degrees of creativity only opens up space for exceptions. There can be no design without a tangible purpose, I don't think thats what people disagree with. I think it's trying to define art that people disagree with, but how can we separate design? Tangibility.

comment What is the difference between a designer and an artist?
I think you're missing my point here, I'm not saying art is "purposeless" it's about the tangibility of purpose. The purpose that art serves is an entirely intangible, abstract concept. If art, for example, exists to be beautiful, with what tangible means do we measure it's beauty? Beauty is an abstract concept. Design is more tangible than art, there is normally a tangible purpose that it serves. If you design a toaster you design it with the tangible purpose of making good toast if you design a website you do so with the tangible purpose of communication. Design has some tangibility.

comment Illustrator: All objects in same layer (or in sublayers)
Sure, "at times", but if you're working on something that say has a definite background and definite highlights, it makes a lot of sense to layer the file... especially if you're going to be working with someone else who wasn't involved in your initial process.

It's a personal project. If it was a project I was getting paid for I'd buy the font and charge it to the client... Not that I needed your moral feedback.
