are you specifically looking for some whimsical tag line? like "peace bitches - class of 2011"

or something more conservative

actually, you know what helps, is looking at other designs from other schools or designers and picking out what you don't like. Then you'll have a better idea of what you do like and can start playing around.

uh i cant really explain but if your gonna do graphic design i would suggest that. Its basically away for you to create from scratch and photoshop is a photo editor.

Illustrator is defiantly way better but its going to take some getting used to its really confusing for me. Im just trying to do some simple things with the design you gave me and its so much harder than it should be.

Looks great. Just make the text arc because it looks akward the way it is now and add some space between the text and head. Great overall though.

Ok so last night I was trying to move the E and I did it but it was in black and white and I couldn't insert the color back so I just started over and used a color live trace then no matter how hard I tried I could not cut the E from the rest of the picture while it was in color any tips for this?

Ill post a pic of what im talking about in a second.



See if i click just the E or any letter for that matter the whole thing is selected And if i try to cut the letters out with the knife tool while in color it still doesn't work.
