comment Design tips for a web design by a beginning developer
Agreed. Any chance you could talk to the powers that be about that as part of the design changes?

comment Copyright ownership: paid by hour vs. paid by project
"reasonably high corporate muckety-muck" doesn't necessarily mean "legal expert" either. A podiatrist is a wonderful thing to have when dealing with fallen arches, but I wouldn't call one in to perform a lapriscopic traumatic injury repair even though they're both "Doctors". I'd consider the source.

comment If these colors all have the same lightness, then why does my brain tell me some are lighter than others?
Is this a color perception question or a design question?

comment Text flow - when to say “no”?
@horatio - true. And yet for some odd reason images placed in MS Word with no text wrap are labled "in line with text". Yet another reason I don't like laying anything out in MS Word. But for some reason the phrase stuck in my head this morning.

comment Text flow - when to say “no”?
Right - in official documents (and even submissions to some journals) the rules are right there. I'm looking for more "this is what I've found works for me" or "I had a design professor who said you should have x number of characters or y percent of space to flow text around".

comment Where to ask for free work?
Particularly if it's a company, quid pro quo is often a good arrangement. I've gotten a couple of free months of gym memberships, oil changes, and even a remote starter for my car in exchange for design work. These were all small, local businesses and the quid pro quo was understood up front - "I'll create a front page and associated graphics for that page in exchange for a remote starter being installed in my vehicle".

comment What's the best way to print a mostly black 8.5“ x 11” page?
Print it on someone else's printer. Maybe a neighbor who has a fancy wireless printer and no clue how to turn wireless security on.
