Sadly, I think you may be on to something. And if the company has an actual Creative Director, I wonder how that make him or her feel.

Re: P.O.P. to product design

Bonus question: I am currently a mid-level designer. Obviously I will apply anyway (because why not), but is it realistic for me to be applying to mid-level product design jobs, or would I be considered entry level because of a new industry? I'm nervous I'm going to have to start over at an entry l...

Re: Am I an entitled little twit?

So I got the call. They made an offer. It's slightly less than I was making at my previous gig. The irony is I got the call the day my first "big" freelance check got dropped in the mail. I told them I need 24-48hrs to think about it. They're desperate. I can smell it. They're swamped and one of the...

Re: Panicking...

Things take time and don't expect to find your dream job (or any job) right away! :wink: No joke. Took me three years to find a job, not that my portfolio is world class. Even applied at the AutoZones of the world. Life is crazy. The job I eventually got all but ruined my life. The typical path of ...

I referenced both of these because they are the same basic idea, "I want star tattoos on my face". One is tasteful and almost elegant, while the other is ridiculous.

Re: Am I an entitled little twit?

2. Use all your time and strength to make these new products fly. 3. Be ready for takeoff by June. 4. Check back here by then. mo-i They didn't fly. Still aren't flying. Not that I didn’t try. But I don't care. I'm no longer there. June came & went. Came & went again. So I didn't check back. The re...

Re: Oh boy...

This sounds like a bad situation. -Don't get "Brain raped" - if any of your knowledge is in conflict you need to hold it closely. They may just want to see what you're working on then never speak to you again. -I have had a friend with a NC who wanted to go to a competitor have a similar issue wher...

Re: Apple iPhone 6s?

Agree with yo's first post. Apple is a magnet for hyperbole. FWIW I've never used a case with either my iP4 or iP5. I do use a cling plastic screen protector though. However, I have to say, it would be LAME to bend your phone.

Re: Logitech's new cloths

Just being a bit fussy here -- the kerning between the 'g' and the 'i' needs tweaking. Too tight. The new FaceBook logo has the same problem. It seems that kerning is becoming a lost/ignored art. It is just a touch snug isn't it? At any rate, I find the look to be a little garish. Then the video se...

Re: Going from Solidworks to Rhino? Compatibility?

Looks like I'm a little late to the party, but I go back and forth from SW to The Horn from time to time, so here's my suggestion: You'll need a seat of both SW and The Horn for sure. I "Save As" .iges out of SW into a dedicated Horn folder, just to keep things neat&tidy. The geometry is very clean ...
