A tutorial in progress of writing by John Griessen

This writing is a journal of a project to recreate a business card originally made with Illutrator 7, after losing the original file, so the comparison to Illustrator is much from memory and not to be taken as the last word, but a guide as to how the programs compare.

Attached is a PNG image of the printed business card:

It originally was a collection of paths filled with colors and text objects with grouping to make replicating some objects easy.

The shell command '$inkscape --version' tells us this is Inkscape 0.39cvs (July 2, 2004)

The logo main element is a pseudo sine wave, and I made it before with grid snap and stretching and replicating, so now I set my units to mm and grid spacing and snap to 1 and remember how it would be nice to have major and minor grids instead of just one, so I want to create some vertical guides evenly spaced and cannot remember and start looking in docs. In Adobe Illustrator 7, clicking on the ruler bar created a guide, if I recall. Once created, it could be moved with grid snap like any object, so getting it on grid or off was easy.
