Re: Highlighter marker rendering

On the opposite side of the spectrum I am experimenting with a no marker solution/hack: empty molotow marker filled with water and fountain pen, it takes a little bit of practice and some forethought since you blend the ink with the water marker and the ink is critical ( Lamy black here ), but so fa...

Re: portfolio/website advice? help me plea(s)

My perspective from a UIUX pov is that the landing page needs to go, there is also some double landing pages for each project which are a bit disorienting, the biggest issue is that when taken as a whole it doesn't come across as a good representation of your work or aspirations. I think a hiring ma...

Re: Software find for moodboards !

Cool! I would be curious what your process was for this comic. Did you use the CAD as an underlay? Thanks !, finally committed to a graphic novel ( mostly as a side/fun project ) , so this is the first panel in who knows how many, so you basically write a script with your story, and then break it d...

Re: Software find for moodboards !

For completion sake here's the final panel, I used pureRef throughout and I feel it did save me a lot of time.

Re: A.I. "designed" cars

I spent most of 2018 working on A.I. related projects, the first one was working with a startup/ hedge fund that is trying to replace traditional hedge funds with crowdsourced A.I. ( machine learning algorithms ) and the second a self published book on C.A.I. ( Conscious Artificial Intelligence) thi...

Re: Sharing your salary with coworkers

I think it's crazier that knowing what everyone earns in a company is not the norm, there must be other companies out there that do it, but this TED Talk came to mind :

Re: Software find for moodboards !

You know you can open a whole bunch of images in a “stack” that imports into layers for easy scaling and manipulation...? Yeah, that's what I was using, but feels/felt like overkill and the window management, import I think is better addressed by this tool, especially if you are on a laptop or don'...

Software find for moodboards !

I normally use photoshop for mood boards and reference images, but it is a small annoyance to open the file, copy from source, paste, scale etc,etc, I just stumbled upon this little piece of software and so far it s blowing PS to pieces, for instance, I am doing some test panels for a comic, so I ne...

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...
