What's the difference between rich black and auto black?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Rich block is 100% in CMYK, auto black is CMY is 0 and black is 100%
2.
Rich black, in printing, is an ink mixture of solid black over one or more of the other CMYK colors, resulting in a darker tone than black ink alone generates in a printing process.
3.
Rich black is used when you have a large area to cover. Auto black is used for smaller elements such as text and little areas. Rich black is "blacker than black" and uses different RGB combinations to achieve a darker look, whereas auto black is only 100% black.
4.
Rich black includes a mix of hues in addition to 100K. Auto black may be either 100K or rich, depending on the software's default settings. It's always important to check out what that is. I prefer to always work on a screen with the settings displaying the actual black.
5.
Rich Black has a combination of Cyan Magenta Yellow and Black and the auto black only contains 100% black. Rich black is darker that autoblack and is used to cover design that has multiple color layers to avoid black transparency.
6.
Plain black is just 100% plain black ink (K=100); rich black is a combination of inks to create the black (C=63,M=52,Y=51,K=100)
7.
Rich black is made up of more than one color usually a percentage of each color CMYK which produces a richer black than auto black which is only black ink.
7.
How much bleed do you normally have on your layouts?
User-Submitted Answers
1.
Usually it depends on the printer and his press and the project, around one sixteenth to one eight of an inch sometimes one quarter inch.
2.
Its depends on the design and the requirement. Normally .5 inch for a4 size brochure.
3.
1/8 of an inch is pretty standard, although I'm always in contact with the printer, so I check with them before sending the file.
8.

2.

User-Submitted Answers

Research the customers webpage to understand the feeling of their products. Start brainstorming of ideas. Create various concepts and present them to the costumers. Once one of the concepts are selected, finish the design and send to the client for final approval.
2.
Quote - Planning - Designing - Implementing.
3.
At first understand core Concept or requirement of software.
4.
After I create the sketch (depending what the sketch is for) I typically go right into photoshop to create a mockup to send to the client or the initial design. Once I get the go-ahead, I go into wordpress and begin building it from the ground up, making sure the final project is verbatim to the initial design to please the client as much as possible.

All of them. Particularly the design process is the most impartant.
3.
Planning, design and implementation for equal.
4.
Planning, without a doubt.

All of the above. If you're missing any one of those parts of the formula it can mess up the rest of the design. You want to make sure it's consistent in all parts.
