comment How should I handle vector artwork and images for street pole-sized ads?
I would just like to add that I just completed exporting as per all your instructions Tom and would otherwise have gotten this job wrong. Your help is sincerely appreciated.

I'll then play with colours to make sure that it aligns with the nature of the brand and that there is harmony. I'll then discuss use of space, proximity (I didn't understand what you meant by 'line') and the other aspects listed. Would it be good to advise on how this layout would vary based on other media? Are there typical questions I should expect that tend to come your way when presenting look & feel? Thank you!

comment How do I create a look & feel?
Thank you for all the advice so far as I am venturing into web design as well at the moment. This scenario in particular is however for print and outdoor media so your two answers combined are perfect. Please advise if I have interpreted correctly by the way I explain how I intend to go about this: I'll begin with one existing piece of A4 work. I will search for innovative layouts to get a sense and inspiration for creating one of my own. I'll assign a particular font to the header, the subhead and body copy. (I may be wrong there, please advise).

Beautiful answer. It was so wonderful to read. You answered all of my questions and I really do appreciate you gathering what I needed to know. I can now move forward with the project with confidence and becoming a designer feels like a far more possible thing.

Thank you! I just want to say that I've fallen in love with design. It is wonderful. I even enjoy deep-etching very much. It is exciting to zone out and let your soul interact with a page.

Thank you. I am mostly taking them straight across into Indesign. Do they remain Vector then? It seems that way. Thank you to the person who advised that I set high quality mode on.

The low-res problem shows on-screen. I'm quite certain I checked the quality modes but I will do so again and keep you updated. I was just particularly asking if my way of working is alright in simply dragging vector images from Illustrator and dropping them into Indesign. Initially I was under the impression that they'd remain a vector format. I thought Adobe programs communicated well in this way so I'm trying to see if this is not the case, that it will convert to a format, other than vector that is likely to pixellate.

comment Will a photographic image be ruined in print if I use HDR toning in RGB mode and then convert to CMYK?
Thanks Horatio. I'm not as tech-savvy as you but I think I got a sense of what you're saying there. I suppose, to explain myself more clearly, I would elaborate like this. Photoshop CS5 introduced and actual HDR window in its drop-down menu. However, this is only available in RGB mode. It has great presets that make for powerful effects. You can switch back to CMYK. I'm working on a Macbook Pro so I'm asking, should I expect the image to come out vastly different / distorted when printed?
