@johnp It was bad here too, had no voice for like 2 weeks, which is not so interesting when you're supposed to be teaching!
I just stepped out of the end of semester fog for my MA and now stepping into masssiiive piles of late grading ugh.
Stocked up on wine lol
Should be here more often though now
I cant remember who posted the Stranger Things article about stealing that VHS tape image but it was quite useful as an example of "please don't be that person"

@BESW Ah yes! always dependable @BESW :-)
 
For reference, I ran a chat search for "vhs" and looked for links.
 
never noticed the search field for chat, might come in handy, thank you!
I'm still recovering from the craziness of these past few weeks, including falling asleep in various random places haha
I have about 50 pop-up projects to grade, at least it's entertaining
 
"pop up" projects?
 
like pop-up cards with mechanisms
they had to find a sentence aimed at kids learning to read, with a protagonist and some action verb
e.g. The squeaky piggy is very messy.
and then something has to happen when the card is opened, based on a bunch of examples of mechanisms I gave them: sliders, wheels that turn, etc.
 
3:12 AM
It was a lot of fun!
Cool. I used to make pop-up and slider cards.
 
I think one of the key takeaways was that you can't just rush a thing like this
because the mechanism just falls apart
and the fun part for me is I dont have to dig through Indesign files to check everything that's been done wrong

Well done @BBCNews, well done.

Guys how do i find resources about designing offline (paper) forms?
I've searched like hell but all i get are web forms :/
There's a few templates in word but none of them are close to what I wanna make
 
@AayushAgrawal what exactly? Because designing a magazine is completely different from a newspaper, which is completely different from a concert poster although they all are paper.
 
@PieBie I suspect "forms" means "a form you fill out with information and then submit," like an order form or a request form or the like.
 
ah, I understood 'forms' in a more generic meaning, as in 'forms of paper media'
 
@AayushAgrawal I would suggest searching for phrases like printed form, and design guidelines.

@AayushAgrawal I'm not sure if you have a specific type of form in mind but maybe look for subscription inserts or simply PDFs meant for printed forms like tax stuff for example
Not guidelines per se but after looking at a few of them you should be able to extract some patterns

Q: How to determine correct font name between OSX and Windows with Adobe "Find Font"

LateralTerminalIn Adobe Illustrator CC 2017, How to determine the correct font name between OSX and Windows with Adobe "Find Font" / Missing Font Manager? Same fonts are located on a folder on a server. When opening a document on Mac the font names display fully and correctly. However, when opening the same...

Informal survey... Would asking about tips to catch plagiarizing graphic design students (or I guess that could work for graphic designers as well) be on topic or not? I can think of a few I've been accumulating these past years, curious about knowing more
 
9:03 PM
@Emilie I think it could be okay
 
@Ryan Cool, I'll summarize my own tactics before I write the question
 
@Emilie Aw hope you're feeling better. Ah yes, wine :3 the symptom and the solution to it all!
 
@johnp Oh yes. It's so good to be healthy again, I thought I had strep at some point. My colleagues kept teasing me that they didn't think I was really sick but that I would go sing at the karaoke bar every night. I sounded like a jazz singer that's been smoking a few packs a day haha
 
how's the mom life going?
 
Wait a sec, there's a @JohnB and a @johnp??? lol
uhoh
I'm afraid I might have confused one with the other before :-P
 
9:15 PM
haha
 
@Ryan It's better when the toddler is not sick too! I'm sort of seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, I've been working super hard on an educational board game
I wanted to post it on the looking glass but it`s not like I would have had any time to take comments into considerations so I refrained
 
I haven't been around here much so no need to feel bad
 
but I'm pretty happy with it!
 
oooh cool! Gonna do a kickstarter or anything for it?
 
maybe! actually almost for sure a research project
it aims to teach teenagers about fake news and misinformation
strategy game
I just need a break for a month or two though haha
It was my proposal for class so I expected to put in more work but due to some circumstances, the team of 4 ended up being 2 people short at the end
and it was one of those sprints where one goes to bed at 3am and another picks up at 4am
for a few days
 
9:19 PM
Im too old for that
 
I'm going to enjoy the holidays and then we'll see
oh me too haha
but I got a bit of sleep deprivation taste when I became a mom so it's not an unfamiliar feeling :-D Just can't pull an all nighter
Not sure if this link will work: scontent.fymq1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/…
It involves both perspectives of news consumers and fake news creator
one tries to take over the board and "social network" points while the other tries to clear the board
 
confuse me with johnp? I don't see the resemblance
:P
 
...someone just voted on my Area51 proposal... putting a few questions to 11 upvotes
come on! go upvote something that will count >.<
@JohnB mind joining and posting some questions and upvotes? area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/110851/sales-and-marketing
if you dont have ideas for questions I can write some up for you :)
@Emilie you too ;)
 
9:35 PM
I threw in some up votes! I'll try and think of some questions too
 
danke!
