Re: [Gimp-developer] something's starting, it is the text tool

Text, for me, is sometimes everything in the design.

Sometimes when I'm designing a brochure or any ad, i start by placing text.
The font, size, style... these are the prime focus.

Just black text... and some lines... these complete the skeleton of the design.
Then comes the art work.

Sometimes, the text IS the art work...
Like when we've got an interesting font, or some important text that is the focus of the design...

I would say, in any advertisement design, there is more to the text than to any art or graphic.

oh, yes that also helps. going through it right now.

for instance this one gets the artwork-driven-by-type

let's be honest and say that every one of these that look
super clean are better made in inkscape & co.

but everywhere where there is at least a bit of grunge,
texture, yes, organic touch: that is GIMP territory (I say).
