When I’m making an issue, I’ll use Illustrator to knock up little spot illustrations, custom titles, holding shapes, borders and other stuff like that. Photoshop is mainly used for prepping all photos that I source for print, making them a little tastier, and occasionally dropping in some vector type into a photo (eg. a killer whale jumping out of the letter A). In Design is like the big wok you through everything together in, and desperatly try and make a decent meal out of the ingredients. tip: if type is any bigger than 50 pt on a page, create outlines and kern it manually, most fonts are retarded when it comes to spacing, and you’ll notice the difference.

So this is my scratchpad’ so far for issue 5, pretty messy but you get the idea.
