I'm a Mechanical Engineer, even if that's no longer in my title. I've done gear design, machine design, hydraulic design, system design.... These days I develop desktop applications and am starting to ramp up my web application skills with HTML5, Javascript, and jQuery. I've been programming in various languages since before the TI-99 and Commodore 64 days back in 19..(cough, cough, mumble, mumble).

comment InDesign drag/drop
welcome to graphicdesign. This type of question belongs on superuser.com, since it deals with operating a specific software, rather than an actual graphic design topic.

comment What is the single most influential book every designer should read?
I started with 'The Visual Display of Quantitative Information'. Out of the first 3 titles, it has always been the most useful for me when I need to display technical data.

comment Logo design and text placement
@Computerish: It is not decided if the logo will be left- or right-aligned. Any suggestions?

comment Logo design and text placement
Hopefully, the edit where I added the actual image (minus actual company name) will take some of the subjectivity out of this.

comment How can I design a simple logo without any prior skill in graphic design?
He's not really 10, that's just the minimum age that se sites allow you to enter. :) I tried to be 0 years old on a site where I had no experience with any of the topics and that's when I found that out. :)

comment How can I improve my drawing tablet skills?
Expect to take at least 10-20 hours of intensive tablet use to get comfortable with it. After that, you will never draw with a mouse again. EVER.
