Fridays with Mordy
« on: March 04, 2011, 03:50:36 PM »
Mordy Golding, who wrote the Real World Illustrator book if you've seen it, has a nifty little deal going. It's a free live tutorial/show on Illustrator where you can watch what he's doing and ask questions, every Friday.

Thanks for that link Sally. So much to follow/learn these days. We had a Mordy linky thing going here, but it's kinda lapsed a bit.
Worth a nudge on this one though. A lot of us here are now evolving into PDF-pushin' monkeys. (Apart from a guy called DCS, who apparently spends half his time in Illy these days...  :huh: ).

Yes, it's box jobs for me as well with all manner of varnishes, whites and special inks, most of which the customer has no clue how to build. We went corporate a little while ago and we're using Hybrid to push PDFs between plants, but when we get raw files we usually turn to Illustrator to create seps they are lacking. We've got Neo, but it's just clunky for building white plates from scratch. As far as new stuff, we rolled out G7 this week, we're doing Nexus next week plus Lean Manufacturing and part two of Hybrid. And one of our sales team tells me her main client may switch to InDesign. I think my brain's about to start leaking. :)

So,  :drunk3: i send the job to the rip with live transparecy (v 1.7 or whatever) and it craps out with a memory error.

Sounds like some of the 'leaky' bits may be of interest here.   :wink:   You've got a full schedule, by the looks.   But drop in when you can. And welcome.   :cool:

impossible, the center of the brain that can process box jobs is clogged with weight issues and thoughts of comfort food in women.

gnubler, you have a limited time frame to respond to this deliberately provocative statement. Before it parches in the sun. Or is it only sunny your way?   :undecided:

I only just saw it - consider this a whippin', G_Town.  :whip:

Anyone who routinely puts together box jobs without killing coworkers should win some sort of prize.
