Logos, Icons and Source Materials

To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit: it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse. To design is to transform prose into poetry.

Are Source Materials Available?

Yes. Some of the materials are available. Logos and Icons can be downloaded from this page. Original, digital artwork for posters and handouts can be provided to organizations that have signed a “Notice of Intent” or a “Memorandum of Understanding” with The “I Love U Guys” Foundation.

What Formats Do You Use?

Our digital design experience dates way back to 1984 with LinoType systems, then in 1988 Macintosh computers using Illustrator 88, Photoshop Version 1, and QuarkXPress. We've been using graphic applications ever since. But, from 2009 to 2015 The Foundation primarily used Mac OS X, Pages version 4.3 - iWork ’09, for page layout. It was just precise enough to get the job done. With El Capitan, Apple broke hyphenation in Pages 4.x and Pages 5.x lost some required capabilities. That began the saga of finding a replacement. A saga occasionally punctuated with a combination of cursing and weeping salty tears of despair.

Back To Our Roots

We initially looked at Adobe InDesign for page layout and produced some materials. The showstopper with InDesign was its screen rendering. It's ugly and jaggy and left us cursing and weeping.

Today, most of our page layout is done in QuarkXPress. It has been a total delight to go back to a page layout application that feels like home. For vector-based graphics we use AutoDesk Graphic, Affinity Designer, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator. They all write and read both .pdf and .ai files. For bitmap graphics we use Pixelmator, Affinity Photo, and sometimes Adobe Photoshop. They all write and read .psd files. We are trying to ween ourselves off the Adobe Cloud subscription.

The Conundrum

What that means is that we are in a bit of a transition. Until we get through the next generation of materials, our formats are all over the map. While occasionally crufty, it works for us because we have all of the software. We acknowledge that many organizations may not have either the platforms or the software to utilize the source documents we make available. Keep in mind there are a number of applications that can edit the PDFs directly.

Can You Provide Materials In Microsoft Word?

No. Retaining the graphic integrity of the materials proved beyond our capabilities using Microsoft Word.

But Your MOU is in Microsoft Word!

Yes. The “Notice of Intent” and the “Memorandum of Understanding” are Word documents. There are exceptions to everything.

Please Provide Materials in Microsoft Word...

Sigh. Again, retaining the graphic integrity of the materials proved beyond our capabilities using Microsoft Word.

What Materials are available?

Most of the single page documents are available. For the larger documents, like our guidance docs, we need to have a conversation. We've worked with a number of umbrella organizations to customize the materials for their members, sectors or regions.

Peace

It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work.

It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
