On Tuesday morning, upon arriving in the office after the long holiday weekend, I was welcomed by this very interesting package.
Last Thursday I had a bit of fun taking a look back at some old graphic arts books that we had on our shelf here at TPI Solutions Ink. I tagged some images from the past in "The Lithographers Manual", a GATF publication and from a book called "How to do Paste-Ups and Mechanicals" by S. Ralph Maurello. The images I chose depict the way graphic designers used to do things in the "old days", like copy and paste, scale photos, use an artboard and the tools of the trade.
Every day at TPI Solutions Ink we use a variety of programs to design and output files for both print and the web. Each program has its own strengths and it's important to choose the right program to get the job done. Below is an infographic that highlights the best uses for Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. For a more in depth explanation of these programs, check out our past blog post: InDesign, Illustrator & Photoshop, which program should you be using?.
