Re: What s the best laptop for designers?

I have yet to try the stylus though so if you are looking for a sketch pad I recommend anything that works with a Samsung pen (check your version). The Samsung pen is essentially a mini Wacom pen, right? I'm perfectly happy with feel of Wacom pens, I use one every day, but I was pretty blown away t...

Re: What s the best laptop for designers?

I almost sprung for a Surface Pro a couple of years ago. I loved the idea of having more or less full blown Adobe CC available on a tablet. The one thing that kept me away was the garbage stylus. If Adobe can follow up Photoshop for the new iPad Pro with at least Illustrator and InDesign I'm ditchin...

Re: Transparency in the development stage for a new startup

We offer a “review and file” for $570 (including the patent-office fee) in which the inventor writes the provisional with our guidance. We review it, give feedback, and file it with the USPTO. I'll definitely keep that in mind for the future. I filed a provisional patent on my own a few years ago, ...

Re: Transparency in the development stage for a new startup

PS. Challenges and cost of Kickstarter is a whole different subject. I've done some research on it and i'm not convinced the cost and money needed is anywhere close to the value you get from it. For a successful campaign I've figured to raise $300,000 you typically need to have about half that in c...

Transparency in the development stage for a new startup

I'm working to bring a product idea to life through a Kickstarter campaign some time in the latter half of 2019, with initial development beginning in January. One idea I have, partially because I've never seen things done quite like this and partially because it could be a good way to build pre-cam...

Re: What cell phone do you own?

I'm still on my iPhone 6S. Up until that phone, I had done the clockwork iPhone upgrade every two years. The jump in price from $300 to $600 for the 6S hurt, and I couldn't justify the $750/$1000 for the 8/X. I also didn't feel like there were any new features in the 8/X compelling me to upgrade. I ...

Re: various things like "ID I", "ID II", "jr.", "Staff"

On a side note, how important has the community found those titles to be throughout their careers? I have talked with designers, managers, and recruiters who: A. Couldn't care less about titles and are more interested in your specific experience and work. B. Wouldn't even consider you for a "new" po...

Re: Obtaining a release for unused designs

If the contract terms said that all IP regarding all project content would be transferred to the client party, then you need their written consent to transfer it back to you regarding said concept. It is better to state in your project terms that one (1) creative solution is to be obtained by the c...

Re: What are your other creative outlets?

Going to the movies. I love trying to dissect all of the decisions that were made and how they successfully or unsuccessfully affect the outcome. Like books, movies represent and interesting overlap of both the purposefulness of pure design and the expression of pure art. They can be incredibly pers...

Re: Obtaining a release for unused designs

Nothing stopping you from buying IP. I will say it is a lengthy process involving very expensive lawyers. Let me revise. Any advice on obtaining the IP for free? I realize this largely depends on who currently owns it. I have a great relationship with my former studio, and I don't think it would be...

Obtaining a release for unused designs

There are a number of projects I've worked on over the years that never went beyond concept or prototype stages yet the ideas still have some potential in my mind. Does any have experience or best practice advice for obtaining the rights to defunct concepts in order to develop them on your own? As f...

Re: The Materials Show

It's pretty helpful if you know what you're looking for - comparable to the vendor sections that usually get shoved to the back corner of bigger trade shows but here they're the majority.
