Some opinions: One must see himself connected to persons which are meaningful without explanations. Otherwise this will not catch his attention. You probably cannot use literally meaningful faces, because you cannot get reasonably priced images and known faces often have plenty of not so wanted things in their history or at the endpoint of their history. ...

Too small. I would use at least 8pt type for business cards. Get rid of the QR code, those things are (arguably) useless, increase font size. Move the social media stuff on the back of the card and increase font size again. Most times people just go looking for the phone number or the email address.

6.5pt type is far too small for any business card contact information. ANY card. Form vs function It doesn't matter what font is used, 6.5pt type is simply too small to be read easily and the primary function of a business card is to read the contact information. For people over 40 it's a matter of physiology. The eyes simply are not as good once you ...

Wordpress must have followed some existing guideline. For example, wikiHow instructs the following for preparing poems for publication in a magazine: one inch margins on all sides poem title centered or flush left poems are single spaced Justify and indent the text of your poem. The font they use in the examples is some Courier variation (...

That looks like a good use of negative space to convey your message. Things to look out for: make sure the "7" shape doesn't look like it's a different font from the other numbers. keep it simple, try to not add too much detail to the torn paper that could obscure the shape of the "7". ensure there's good contrast between the empty shape and background so ...

there's still good 3 and 0 and something splintered between them. If you want to break 370, break it as a whole.

Think as a client. Design it like you are the person who needs it and make it better till you feel that it is the best for your need.

This question is probably better suited for https://ux.stackexchange.com/ But in my opinion, you need to differentiate two things. The area and mode of interaction. The way the element behaves. You could have your icon, and when clicked the menu simply slides from the right instead of unfolding from the top. But for the sliding thing, it can be tricky. ...

Touching the hamburger menu is standard... regardless of how the menu appears. It doesn't matter if the menu appears as a pop up, sudden dropdown, or slides in from a side/top/bottom.. a simple touch of the hamburger should perform the "show" action. Requiring the user to slide left is unintuitive and you will cause usability hurdles. However, if you ...

You are looking at a basic geometry and real-world example of the difference between aligning / distributing centroids versus aligning / distributing edges in a non-linear group - it's not the software - this is just how reality in a Euclidean geometric reference frame works. Were your lozenges centre-aligned horizontally as well as distributed between ...

You must be using the Transform Each function or rotating each piece one at a time. Singular rotations on independent objects are based upon that object's center. Because the center of the objects are in different locations, the spacing will change if you rotate things one at a time (or use Transform Each). There's no need to group anything. However, you ...

I have to agree with Scott about the fresh eyes. However, I usually ask a friend or family member for an opinion. They don't know anything about design, and I don't always agree with their opinion, but I find this usually pushes me into making a decision. If I agree with them I feel good going in that direction, and when I don't, their opinion sort of makes ...

If I like 2 solutions for the same thing, I will eventually just pick one and move forward. I will rarely consult with the client in a situation like this to avoid generating new ideas. Whatever I've picked, I will know it was good anyway. I step back and look at the same thing again in a few days and make changes if possible. This is particularly easy in ...

Picasso was touring an elementary school and viewing the artwork the children had on display. He was amazed at how good it all was. He asked the teacher... "What are you teaching these children such that they are all fantastic artists?" To which, the teacher replied, "I simply know when to take things away from them." At some point, experience ...
