Re: Email Job Offer?

That's strange, I'd just go and call them. Notify them that you recieved the e-mail and you had additional questions. Is there a contact person in the e-mail?

Re: Oh Hai! 1964 Honda CB160 Motorcycle Build

Well, it's been almost two years... what happened? I couldn't find the local recources to help finish the build. It ended up to become pretty frustrating since most of the folks around here work on H-D and didn't know much about the inner workings of the build. Internet sources were slim and I ende...

Re: Exhibit design with an ID degree?

I'd agree with the above statements. Most large exhibit houses have a resident architect to handle all projects and provide structures for the designers to work with. The smaller ones just have industry specific structures to work with.

Re: Design thinking fatigue

I've been lucky that the term "design thinking" has slowly been declining within my company. What I do appreciate is that it has brought up the subject is "How can design help us?"

Re: INSPIRATION sources - how do you manage them?

I have a couple of bookmarks for blogs but more typically I'll search out something when I need it, versus having it 'pushed' at me. Information without identification is just noise. This is how I manage it. The trick for me was curating the information after finding it. Lately, I've been utilizing...

Re: NASA´s next spacesuit? really....

Agreed. If we run into aliens, they may interpret the ugly patterns as a sign of agression and declare war on all of humanity. They'll start to research our communication channels and find thinks like "Dancing w/ the Stars, Justin Beiber and Honey Boo Boo" and they'll consider exterminating us a fav...

Re: HELP! REBOOT IDSA Wisconsin

Thanks! We're taking opinions from all over since we need to get started and our current membership is a little disconnected at the moment. That's a great point about the justification. We believe we can create an informative session talking about relevant topics that would improve work productivity...

HELP! REBOOT IDSA Wisconsin

So I went to my first IDSA meeting since my undergrad over 10 years ago. A few weeks ago I got an e-mail from IDSA-WI saying there's a gathering for members in Madison, WI and we're all invited to discuss what we would like to see out of the chapter. I was obviously excited since this is the first c...

Re: HELP! Online Portfolio Required?

As a hiring manager I actually have no preference to your own site vs coroflot/behance, I just want to see the work. I support this. In most cases as long as the work is accessible you're good. I have found that more visitors may be biased based on profession. So most photography/graphic folks resi...

Re: HELP! Online Portfolio Required?

Unless you can truly bring your concept/idea to market, you shouldn't worry about it being "stolen". Non actionable ideas by you should be considered examples of your thought process and your abilities. The purpose of them is to secure a job and if they're not doing that, then what's the point?

Re: You mad bro? IHA Rant

OP: your case is a little diff. the person at the booth obviously didnt assess the situation, as you are a potential buy not another vendor and could have handled the situation with more decorum and tack, while potentially landing a sale. Yes, so I often talk to someone in the booth so they're awar...

Re: You mad bro? IHA Rant

Are you sure it was the designer? Perhaps it's different in the US, but my experience at various trade shows around EU is that it's only sales people in booth. They don't know anything about the product that you can't learn in the brochure or website, and they want to focus their time on the right ...

Hey looks like I missed you, but I'll be back again on Monday. So I'll see if you're around then. I hope you're having a good time at the show!

You mad bro? IHA Rant

So, I had an interesting experience today @ the IHA show. As I was wandering the aisles looking at the wares, I came across some glassware that I thought was interesting and may have some merit for future follow up with the company. I talked to one of the individuals there and he was reasonably ok t...

Re: Anybody at the IHA in Chicago this week-end?

Philippe, I'll be there this Sunday with my department's intern to do a design audit of the industry. We're from MillerCoors so while we won't have a both there, I'm sure our product will be somewhere onsite. :)

I'll be sure to stop by and say hi!
