2016 American Graphic Design Award

8 Oct

 

agda16_quote

GDUSA AGDA 2016 Award Letter and CertificateFor the ninth consecutive year, I’m proud to have won an American Graphic Design Award From GDUSA Magazine. The award is for a 3D layer project that I created at the ADIM Conference which took place in April at Adobe Headquarters in San Jose, CA, and had the theme, “20,000 Layers Under the Sea.” (My projects from past ADIMs also won in 2013, 2014, and 2015.)

The media used are printed ink and plexiglass, which is also laser cut and etched. My solution is typography driven, displaying a quote from the poem, Rime of the Ancient Mariner (text of 1834), By Samuel Taylor Coleridge, on the center panel. Waves are etched on the front panel, which also has a window cut out, and a water pattern is printed in color on the rear panel.

Just under 10,000 entries were submitted to the competition, and only 15% were recognized with Certificates of Excellence. My work will be published in the printed, online, and digital American Graphic Design Awards Annuals.

Thank you to the Editors and Judges from GDUSA, as well as to Russell BrownAdobeThe Van Heyst GroupEpsonUniversal Laser SystemsRoland, and all my fellow attendees for the inspirational experience that was ADIM16.

Just under 10,000 entries were submitted, and only 15% were recognized with Certificates of Excellence. The piece will be published in the printed American Graphic Design Awards Annual, in the Online Winners Gallery, and in the Digital Annual.

Adobe InDesign Can Alphabetize Paragraphs?!

20 May

I didn’t know that InDesign can alphabetize paragraphs until I found this great post on the InDesign Secrets blog. This feature isn’t so intuitive, but once you know where to find it, it’s almost terrifyingly simple to use.

1. Go to Window Menu > Utilities > Scripts and open the Scripts Panel.

Image

 

2. Click the arrows next to the Samples and JavaScript folders to expand them and see their contents.

Image

 

3. With the Type Tool, select the paragraphs that you want to alphabetize, then double-click SortParagraphs.jsx in the Scripts Panel.

IMPORTANT: Each item to be alphabetized must be separated by a Paragraph Return for this to work.

Image

 

4. The Paragraphs will now be alphabetized.Image
