I worked in the marketing department at a part of News Ltd for 5 years in QLD. It was great, quite stable and allowed me to work on some great campaigns for the brand - and being the client we only had to impress management who trusted us. All good. The only difficult thing was daily rumours of restructures.

Does anyone know a quality (and reasonably priced) promotional company that does hoodies tees and caps? This one is for a gym so its whole purpose is to wear while working out... and therefore they'll get washed alot.

Just about to start a 30 page doc for government that needs WCAG 2.0. From what I understand heading and paragraphs must be named styled and tagged.
I have been given the below info - just wondering if it is difficult or there are any tips or tricks?
Also is their any size limits to the body copy?
1. Check your colour contrast for text over colours.
2. Check your paragraph styles, and make sure they all have tags for PDF tagging in “Export Tagging"
- Give all Headings either a H tag or heading levels tags (H1, H2 etc.)
- Give all other text a P tag
- Any text styles that DO NOT need to be read out an Artifact tag (captions usually go under this category due to alt tagging images)
3. Set up “Articles” for sections so you can determine the reading order better.
- Open the Articles palette under Window
- Click and drag content in to the panel to create articles, order them as you wish within their articles.
- Linked text boxes count as one element in the article.
4. Make sure all tables have a header row. Even if it means the header row is empty and invisible, they all need one.
5. Alt tag all linked images.
- Right click > Object Export options…
- Under Alt text tab, select “Customer” as the source and either type a descriptor or copy/paste captions.
- For images that are decorative and DO NOT need to be read out loud, go to the “Tagged PDF” tab of the export options dialog box, and select “Artifact” under “Apply Tag:” option.
6. Give your document a Title and Author
- Go to File > File Info...
- Title: <As it appears on the cover>
- Author: Department name
7. Export the file
- Make sure it’s an interactive PDF
- Make Sure “Create Tagged PDF” and “Use Structure for Tab Order” are selected
- Under “Advaced” tab, make sure it’s Display Title: Document Title and Language: English: UK

@zack486 - I don't think it is that hard to do for a set fee but I think it definitely depends on the brand.
I mean the story telling should follow on from the branding, speaking with the same tone, using the same kind of imagery. Normally its best to be reactive with social media stuff so setting a rough monthly calendar isn't a bad idea but dictating a period of time every couple of days to do stuff is a good option as well which is good for business. Normally social media stuff is better to be on a monthly retainer so you know you can dictate a certain amount of hours per month to it and such.

Thanks guys, @DAN sometimes it will be a long list but with others there will be one thing I can't do, say publication design of large documents. Sure I could learn but if i'm the only designer there I feel its risky if I run in to trouble or am unable to make the deadline.
@ZACK486 I am keen on a few positions I have seen and do want to apply, however in these roles there is noone to teach me I would be the solo designer.
sometimes even little things like running into an annoying 'glitch' or where is that function in photoshop that allows me to do 'x'. I can google but sometimes even that can chew up time for something so minor!
I work as an inhouse designer. Most jobs seem to be solo, so just not sure where to go from here.
Did most of you initially work under a senior designer? So far I have only worked solo. Worried that has now put me a bit behind.
