From CreativePro.com –All About Titling Fonts:
When looking for just the right display typeface, have you considered a titling font? If not, you are missing out on an entire category of possibilities. Titling fonts are typefaces designed specifically for headline or display usage. They are usually all caps, but some can contain lowercase, and even small caps! Titling fonts differ from their text counterparts in that their scale, proportion, and design details have been tweaked to look best at larger sizes. They often have an increased weight contrast between the thick and thin parts of the characters, and can sometimes have more condensed proportions than their text-sized cousins if part of a family. This sub-category of display typefaces tend to have a refined, even dramatic look ? qualities that make them an excellent choice for books, magazines, movie titles and sequences, logos, signage, or any usage that calls for large-sized type benefiting from finessed design details as well as a touch of elegance. Titling fonts can be part of an existing typeface or a stand-alone design. They are most often- but not always – serif designs with pronounced weight contrast, as it is the thin strokes that vary the most in typestyles intended for text…

If you’ve used Adobe illustrator for any amount of time, you know that you can view artwork in either Preview mode (where you see all strokes, fills, effects, etc) or Outline mode (where you see just vector paths). And you probably know the keyboard shortcut for toggling between modes, Command+Y (Mac) or Ctrl+Y (Windows). But you might not know that Illustrator also offers the flexibility to see individual layers, or just placed artwork in Preview mode, as well as the ability to see artwork in both modes simultaneously. To see a single layer in Preview or Outline mode, hold the Command key (Mac) or Ctrl key (Windows) and click the layer’s eye icon in the Layers panel. To see placed images in Outline mode, choose File > Document Setup, and select…
From CreativePro.com –CreativePro Tip of the Week: Using the Navigator panel in Photoshop:
If you regularly work on high-res images in Photoshop and you’re not already using the Navigator panel, you’re missing out on a slick way of seeing both a close-up and a bird’s eye view of an image at the same time. That way, you can work on the small details while checking the impact of what you do on the whole image. And it can be especially useful if you have a second monitor, where you can position the Navigator panel and make it large. Open the Navigator panel by choosing Window > Navigator. As you zoom and scroll in the image, you’ll see a red rectangle in the Navigator panel representing your current view. You can click anywhere in the Navigator panel or drag the rectangle to change…

From CreativePro.com –Free Lynda.com Video: Creating Infographics with Illustrator:
I try to tell my kids what it was like back in the day before the answers to every question were just a click or tap away. To get information on an obscure topic you’d actually have to get in the car, go to the library, and look in the right books. Gathering information took effort. Today, we have the opposite problem: with our many screens, we’re caught in a blizzard of data, bombarded with facts and figures from every angle. How to make sense of it all and communicate meaning is the job of the designer. And a daunting job that can be! That’s why Tony Harmer’s course, Creating Infographics with Illustrator, is a welcome addition to the Lynda.com offerings. Here’s the official course description: Infographics visualize your data and help to tell the story behind it. In this course, Tony Harmer shows how to design charts, graphs, and other infographic components in Adobe Illustrator.

He then takes you through the various types of tools, charts, and functions that you can use in infographic production, before wrapping up on…
