How to Remove Blue Highlighted Text in InDesign

By |2019-08-15T14:55:35-05:00January 14th, 2019|Categories: Knowledge-base, Tips & Tricks|

 So why is your InDesign text randomly highlighted in blue?What is the blue background color behind text in InDesign? Is your Adobe InDesign suddenly showing teal highlight behind your text?It's because of a helpful tool, that I have never heard of before, called a style override highlighter - meaning it shows you what text you've modified in your document that is different from the InDesign Basic Paragraph. It's actually super helpful if you're trying to clean up a document's layout, but never having heard of it before, all I wanted to do was get rid of the teal highlighting [...]

Adding a Privacy Policy to My Website

By |2019-01-17T15:30:07-05:00September 27th, 2018|Categories: Knowledge-base|

They know exactly what they are getting with your site. Same goes with "Terms of Service" - our next blog post. We're updating ours so we thought it was a good time to post some good resources if you are trying to do the same. The BBB, Better Business Bureau (an old client of ours! - East Coast chapter), actually put out a template we use ourselves. Templates are great because [...]

Why Don’t We List Our Website Design Prices on Our Website?

By |2019-01-17T15:30:07-05:00September 21st, 2018|Categories: General|

So! You may be browsing our site (or many other web design agencies) and wondering why we list services, but not prices. Are we THAT expensive?! No, no we are not. We are very competitive for a professionally designed customized website in Virginia's DC Metro area. So, why no prices? The reason we don't list our prices is because in our world offering a base price can become very misleading for the customer - and that's dangerous. For example, if I were to offer you a custom website for $750 with a 2-day turnaround, you could probably expect a [...]

By |2019-01-17T15:30:07-05:00August 31st, 2018|Categories: Knowledge-base|

How does consistency make you money as a website designer? What about as a small business who has hired a website designer? It comes down to recognizing what consistency does for you. How it builds your brand, how it establishes your business, how you can use it as a tool, and how you can use it to save yourself time and money. You establish the rules for how your brand should appear, what fonts to use, what styles to use, what logos, colors, and layout types to use. Does your company utilize white space? What about curvy fonts [...]
