I don’t do print

Truck around the neighborhood

I used to say, I don’t do print. Just pixels. Websites. Interfaces.

I’m not sure when my attitude changed, but the allure of tactile increases, just a little, as I get on.

Maybe it’s because everything I worked on years ago, is no more. Cached somewhere in some internet archive, but not used.

It’d be nice to find some project that had impact beyond aesthetics.

That’s a big tangent.

Today I worked on a print project. After looking through more than a handful of stock photography sites for a 3/4 view of a truck, I gave up and shut the lid on the laptop. There are trucks all over this part of town. I never did find the perfect one, and the skies were overcast, but I got something good enough for a mock up.

    Print has been on my mind too. Quark actually. I have a copy but never really used it. A friend was telling me about laying out his book in Quark. It got me thinking about doing a book that way instead of using Acrobat. I don’t know either program well enough at the moment to do a book but, it’s got me thinking…

    Ew, Quark *shudder*
    I gladly have not had to use that program in years. Frustrating would be an understatement, no matter how nifty the type control was/is.
