I like to document some of the techniques I come up with. These haven't been updated in a while.. There are times I look at a published technique and take it one or two steps further.
I have yet to work out a solution for video tutorials. the idea is being researched.
Shape gradients: Oh sure you can use a plugin, this is for those times when you can't get the control you need with a plugin.
Drippy text: I think text effects is a lost art. When I watch a movie, I like to look at the credits and see the text. Is it a font, or was it created in a way that all letters have a unique appearance?
Implied Word Spacing: There is a way to imply word spacing where none exists.
File > New: Some ideas on setting up new files with InDesign.
Knotwork: Perhaps it's the Scotch/Irish heritage, or perhaps not. I have had a fascination with knotwork. It is fairly simple to do with Illustrator.
Braids: Another simple concept, once the basics are learned, there are many creative otption.
Measuring Cups: Ever wonder why bread comes out hard as a brick? This also applies to other types of measuring devices that are printed measures. Critical measures require non-printed tools.
