Question:

A client tells you "I really like that [insert item here]! But I'm worried it'll be out of date soon and I won't like it anymore." How do you respond?

Kyle J.
Answer:

The best answer is to encourage your client to pick things based on their own taste, not trends. If something is trending at the moment, have them consider if they'd still pick it even if it wasn't as popular. This way, when the trend fades, your client still loves the design because they chose it! Besides, almost everything comes in and out of fashion, so the idea of "trendy" doesn't matter much.

Graphic Design

Question:

What is whitespace?

Kyle J.
Answer:

Whitespace is anything on a spread that is not the subject of the composition. The name is misleading, as whitespace isn't always white. Whitespace can be the blank page, a solid fill color, or a full bleed image - as long as it's not the focus of the page. Graphic designers should use whitespace to give their reader's eye time to rest. It makes the content of the spread more impactful, as it has something to stand against.

Absolutely! From the top bar, choose Type>Paragraph Styles. Click on the Hyphenation category at the left of this dialogue box. Simply uncheck the box marked "Hyphenate".
