Re: How to differentiate and manage design proposals.

Sounds like a cool project ! Not sure there's a correct or incorrect way as long your ideas get communicated and can be referenced through the projects life. It all depends on your client and what relationship you have with them and some logistics, my go to is to have a notebook with sketches which ...

Re: Transparency in the development stage for a new startup

Hmm. not sure, I think your product is your brand, folks interested in the process might not be your end consumers and there's the risk of copy cats and derivatives, for instance an acquaintance came up with a prototype for a bike attachment which he built a working prototype on a design sprint in c...

Re: Project: 1 Strike Hammer

I think as an art/conversation piece it doesn't go far enough, at least for my liking, how about a ceramic hammer with gold inlays ? As a real or semi real hammer what's bugging me most is that the wood and the metal handle seem to be setup in a way that would resonate in a painful way when hammerin...

Re: Clients packaging

You know, I've gone back and forth on footloose clients like you call them for a while now, they either seem to be the majority or I have a knack at picking them; anyways, I love the challenge of discovering why certain things aren't happening (due usually to culture, leadership, management etc, etc...

Re: Watch watch

Can you flatten it out and bend it back? As cool as it is I'm having difficulty believing it's actually useful No you can't unroll it, it's mostly jewelry and not a substitute for a real ruler, but if you roll it over a surface you get a decent estimate, it's also accurate in the sub cm mm range an...

Is that a cuff bracelet made from a metric scale? Pretty cool idea for a designer. Or, is it a regular scale to show size?
It's a cuff, pretty useful as well, the back is imperial :

Re: Watch watch

I love my seiko 5, it's affordable and built like a tank, looses about a minute every month which for a mechanical at this price point is quite good.

Re: ARE ALL TV REMOTE CONTROLS BAD?

Oh man, designing a remote control sounds like a dream/ nightmarish project..some remotes I just stole for a brief research session.

Re: Getting hired as freelancer through social media.

Great topic: I don't think having a presence in social media and expecting a cold call from a customer is a viable option, I mean it might happen, but you probably can't depend on it to get consistent work, not unless you are using it solely as a marketing tool, I am sure there are some exceptions. ...
