Freelance creatives in Korea.

Hi Guys, I've had real troubles trying to find creative talent in Korea. I pride myself on knowing designers around the world but i'm drawing a massive blank when it comes to Seoul. Could anyone help out? Does anyone know-someone-who-knows-someone? We're chasing some help for a creative session ther...

Re: Honda ONe

While it looks nice and is beautifully presented, i have to wonder what problems you're solving for the user? Where's the brilliant little (or big) insight that makes people go 'oh yeah that's something I need', as opposed to just 'that looks insane'. I know desire accounts for a lot, but it seems t...

Re: something a little different: Mr Black Coffee Liqueur

I love it mate. Love the bottle, love the idea of the product. I will definitely be keen to get my hands on a few bottles when they're available. I have other coffee nerd/chef friends who would love this too. Would make a great birthday present. I love the thick based bottle. Would be great to see ...

Re: something a little different: Mr Black Coffee Liqueur

FMCG = ? Sounds like an interesting endeavour. Would love to hear more about the whole process of creating the recipie, branding, packaging, etc. R Yeah as Sanjay said it's fast moving consumer goods, more easily defined by how quickly someone throws it away, as opposed to how long they chose to bu...

something a little different: Mr Black Coffee Liqueur

Hi all. By way of introduction I trained and worked as an Industrial Designer and ended up in FMCG innovation, working for a gang of alcohol multinationals. Great gig and great freedom to try new things. I'd recommend it do you guys if you get the chance to work in FMCG. After years of working hard ...

You have the best five years of your life ahead of you and you're worried about job prospects... +1 to what yo said.

Re: What's your favorite design movie/documentary?

Not 'design' per say, but visual culture:

Bill Cunningham New York
&
Annie Leibovitz Life Through a Lens

... are both spectacular documentaries and so worthy of watching.

Quite well, didn't it yo if i remember correctly? Like or loathe her public personality and the posh/becks media lifestyle, she's won over enough of the fashion gatekeepers to make me think she's not all smoke and mirrors.

Re: Reasons not to innovate

If it's such a good idea, why aren't other products with similar specs doing better? This one infuriates me and it's related to 'it's been done before'. The product isn't a feature. It's not the finish. It's not the function. Quoting Richard Sachs, the bike is the bike. Just because our competitor ...

Market cap is monopoly money anyway, pretty much only used for newspapers to make headlines from. +1 on not minding the boat. I mean, it's disgustingly ostentatious and OTT, but what super-yacht isn't? Would I be stoked if it was mine? Damn straight. I can't believe i missed the new iMac due to the ...
