Re: Remember when Nokia used to be cool?

What happened? I remember when Nokia was the coolest cellphone company in the world, the 6110 was the "must-have" device. I'm sorry, Nokia was once cool?? Through the late '90s and 00's Nokia churned out a stream of over-styled, attention-seeking, and ultimately forgettable products . Since Stefan ...

Re: Is my Eng Portfolio too wordy?

"If I Had More Time, I Would Have Written a Shorter Letter" Maybe you could make it less of a running narrative and use bullet points here and there- The fall-back of most engineers...

Re: Human Powered Project

It has to be feasible or it will be nothing more than Industrial designer's folio-padding fluff.

Consider also storing human energy as potential energy that can be later harvested to power a device.E.g. The Gravity light.

Isn't the gist of if this post an implied question concerning design, and the morality of designing and making an artifact that's designed specifically to violently kill and/or maim?

Re: UK Designer looking for tips on how to work in the US

iamdave- Don't get hung up on sketching dogma. Yes, for some reason the US often seems fixated on "ID sketching"- (often banal, clich├ęd, and stylized...) The ability to communicate with the end of a pen (or stylus) is, as you know, only part of the creative process, and what any prospective employer...
