Um... obviously the accompanying photo is a "don't do this" ... so what are you wearing?
How much weight does your personal appearance carry with employers and clients? What does 'dress for success' mean for graphic design and desktop publishing jobs? Let's find out.

Jacci, I know this is not the right format, but I really do have a problem. I am a Christian writer. My platform is a MacBook Pro. I decided to go paperless so I scanned a lot to my computer. The problem is that it is all in .PDF files and I am unable to edit, revise, delete or rewrite. Is there a trick or some software that will enable to to change the .pdf files to something that will allow me to edit them through Pages? Please help me, I am desperate. madras68@bellsouth.net

Let's start the year off with a little pinkish-purple. Or, actually Radiant Orchid. Here's how to use the PANTONE Color of the Year for 2014 in your design projects: http://desktoppub.about.com/od/pantone/fl/Use-the-Color-Radiant-Orchid-in-Graphic-Design.htm   And, in my first newsletter of the year I took a look back at 12 lessons from 2013 with suggestions on applying those topics to 2014.  http://specials.about.com/service/newsletters/desktoppub/2f52c00f130001b9aa019d35.htm  Happy New Year Everyone.

I've done several Adobe InDesign tutorials this past couple of weeks. The latest digs into Corner Effects. You can do more than just put a rounded or beveled corner on a rectangle. Get fancy with your corners. http://desktoppub.about.com/od/indesigntutorials/ss/Corner-Effects-in-Adobe-InDesign.htm

In a discussion of portfolio contents a reader asked about using client-rejected material in their portfolio. Two things you need to decide: 1) what does your contract say and 2) is it good work. http://desktoppub.about.com/od/portfolios/fl/Including-Unused-Designs-or-Concepts-in-Your-Portfolio.htm

December was a busy month. Lots of tutorials, more than two dozen new terms. How well do you know the printing press, vector drawing, Adobe InDesign, and page layout? http://specials.about.com/service/newsletters/desktoppub/2f52b6d49500013e73019d15.htm

Worked on this for a few weeks and finally have it ready. It's my take on "Serif Typeface Classifications" (really, more interesting that it sounds, don't stop at page 1)

Over on Facebook, VeerIdeas is running this fun little contest involving Photoshopping a bunch of "bad stock photos." (https://www.facebook.com/VeerIdeas) I decided to play along and stayed up way too late one evening making this monster mash. Probably won't win any awards but it was fun to do. Here ya go:
