...the most important part of Graphic Design?
Come on....
If Graphic Design was mostly about transferring sketches to vectors, everybody would be a graphic designer.
By the way, line weight differences are not something to avoid, but something every type designer should benefit, even on grotesque types.
So using a stroke to design type is a solution. There many tutorials around about correct vector type design.
Keep trying though! :)

...the most important part of graphic design, as i believe! you cannot interfiere with someone beliefes. and if you have something better to state just do it! and dont go insulting people.

I never insulted nobody. Perharps you want to check this blog.
It's about correct vector and type design. I'm sure it's helpful for everybody.
But it's not about the most important part of graphic design.
Graphic design is about effective choices, about communication, about balance and harmony, about color and typography.
Vectoring sketches, is a technique. Like pencil is a tool, and Illustrator is a tool.
If it's just your belief, there's nothing against.

as i said you cannot changes ones beliefs. and thank you for the blog link it might be useful to some

the line weight differences was purelly a technical issue, i ment that if you make one stroke path and have some strokes left an all this gets resized, you will have a problem, because the stroke stays at a certain pixel weight and the stroke that you made into a shape will be bigger. anyway, you obviously didnt get the point.

You've got that point. But, desiging type with strokes, is far from beeing a good way...
I have also a good tutorial about this one. I'll mail it to you.
adventfont's avatar
thanks but i dont need it, designing type with strokes is just a good and clean beggining, i didnt say that i will make a professional out of this tutorial!

Thank you so much man for doing this! Exactly what I was searching for.

Are you gonna write more or this is the only? My advice to you is to keep them coming. Help us designers that have great ideas, but cant realize them. ;)

Once again, thank you so much.
