Re: Paper mockup

Fusion 360 has good sheetmetal tools.

I just sent this to Joseph and Sina at Visibility, so maybe they will pop in with some answers.

Re: The Concept of Enough

Mo-i is that Fiat full scale :-) That image is a fantastic example. I was visiting some of my wife's family in London earlier this year. One of her cousins is a "car guy" like me and he excitedly asked "what kind of car do you have? A Camaro, a Mustang? A big Jeep?" ... I think he was disappointed i...

Re: Good examples of ID portfolios

Just a thought here, as Mike eluded to a bit, it might be good to step back to define what makes a "good" ID portfolio. Our field is pretty broad, and ever growing in scope. So what kinds of "good" are we looking for needs to be asked. Every candidate has his or her strengths, and when building a te...

Re: Paper mockup

The visibility guys went to RISD. They have us do a lot of hand done paper and cardboard work there, especially freshman year (I've got the exacto scars to prove it :-), note, don't build your cardboard model while sitting on the floor cross-legged at 3am unless you want to nearly slice a toe off as...

Re: When can I expect to start making decent money?

I think firms that don't pay well and who work people extra hard tend to have a very high turn over rate (no matter their reputation)... and then their owners wonder why people don't stay... if you pay the minimum amount you tend to get the minimum in return (wether that is in effort, loyalty, or bo...

Re: Payless Shoes Marketing Stunt

The 2 points I took away from it are: 1) to consumers, pay attention! What you think you are getting is not always what you are in fact getting 2) to designers (or product dev people of all stripes), your end user might not value the things you value (and maybe that is ok, but be aware of it) On the...

Speaking of 914! Spotted this while walking Enzo this morning. It even had matching green velour seats.

The Concept of Enough

I came across this talk on the YouTubes the other day and it has really stuck with me. dFlYnL_SHQc I love this concept of enough as a counter argument to conscious consumption. It has gotten me thinking about its application to design. I tend to loath the phrase "minimum viable product" but when I l...

Re: Portfolio/website feedback

Welcome D'Van! Thanks for joining and going straight to posting your work. I've got a few simple structural things for you to consider. A portfolio is a design problem. Your target user is an overworked, frantically busy, caffeine addicted studio design director that needs to hire someone. So think ...

Re: doodling

Rodrigo, trying putting some parameters to your styling exercise. What kind of home or building is it for? How could the design reflect and riff off that? I've got to head out to Oak Park outside of Chicago for a project in a couple of weeks and it has Frank Lloyd Wright on my brain. A quick doodle ...

Payless Shoes Marketing Stunt

Payless Shoes took over an old Armani store in Santa Monica, named it Palessi, added a zero to all of their prices, then invited a bunch of "influencers" to a grand opening.... and the hilarity ensues. One person payed $640 for a pair of $64 Payless boots... they intercepted all of the people who bo...
