    hello.
    it's funny you mentioned 2advanced. only because that site has been a topic of discussion around here lately. some people seem to think eric jordan invented graphic design. (i'm exaggerating here). anyways. if you go to the advanced search menu and type 2advanced you will see the number of topics that pop up. here's one that speaks of the production. hope this helps.

    the thing with Eric is that he actually studied Graphic Design. which simply means he has learned about colour, form, and how to combine the two.

    all that he is doing is incorporating what he's learned and applying his knowledge.

    hey Desertsnowman.
    i agree with you. but i was just commenting how people in this forum think that ej invented anything dealing with graphic design. his skills are obvious. my discussions never questioned his skills, just that members seem to think b/c they saw it first in flash (and in his site) he must be the originator. i just say graphic design is everywhere, in everything we do, in every medium.

    hey puresin
    according to the some of the fk members, we already have

    desertsnowman, i think you discovered the major problem.

    it's just a fact that learning any profession gives you
    the skills at hand to create or do things in other
    ways that most "amateurs" do.

    studying about graphic designs adjusts your thinking not
    only about form, color and structure but also about anything
    around you. it's like someone opened your eyes and you can't
    switch that new way of looking at things off.

    mostly it's a blessing, but it can also be a curse..

    problem is that most "amateurs" won't see that it takes
    lots of years of learning and practising to achive that
    kind of eye, that kind of thinking.

    after all, graphic design is not about tools like photoshop
    or flash, it's not about creating beautiful images or
    out-of-the-way fonts.

    don't want to say good design is a birthright of studied
    graphic designers. i won't spoil the fun of working in a
    creative buisness for anyone.

    but i fail to see why so many people complain when you
    advise to LEARN design.

    would you buy your car from a mechanic who just got a new screwdriver and enjoys tinkering?


    8minus8, eric made up an awesome site.

    i wanted to make a site the same style (that technical look)
    BEFORE i saw his.

    what now?

    the fame belongs to him, i make up a new idea.

    problem solved.
