By day, I am the Director of Publishing Technology at Jones & Bartlett Learning. I spend most of my time in Xcode and Applescript.

At night, I am a degree candidate at Harvard University, Extension School working towards a Bachelor of Liberal Arts with a concentration in Computer Science.

The rest of the time, such as it is, I futz around with my website, Oatmeal & Coffee.

comment What's the name of the font used in alphanet?
You are likely not going to find an exact match. Text-centric logos like that can be, will be, and usually are modified from the original font to bring a unique look to the text.

comment What is the font in the Profmat logo?
Have you tried contacting the company to see if they have a hi-res or vector version of the logo they can supply? If the logo is being used legitimately, they should be happy to provide a better version than having it redrawn, possibly violating their own branding guidelines.

comment What's the point of converting RGB images to CMYK TIF/TIFF before placing them in InDesign?
@360path: Conversion does not necessitate a loss in quality as that event depends on the formats being converted to, from, and the settings made at the time of conversion. For example, with JPGs loss in quality is likely, but necessarily as the compression can be set to highest quality or balanced with file size and quality that a typical user will not notice (or even care, for that matter). Besides, if quality is a potential issue if not a requirement, then JPG shouldn't be the first choice anyway. In color space, going from RGB to CMYK can easily shift, but maybe not at all CMYK to RGB.

@360path: This all could be read as more a toe-may-to vs. toe-mah-to kind of thing, but I still disagree with the above commenters. In our workflow, the vast majority of our art is intended for print, with most re-use there as opposed to web. Even though we know the art is more than likely to be used for web, we still create art in CMYK if only because the press is far less forgiving then the web. As we see it, converting art after it has been placed in pages equates to back-tracking and therefore lost time, if not just simply creating a new opportunity for errors. To me, it makes no sense.
