Enve is also for sale. We have been getting all our pro-deal orders in.
On the biggest MTB site Pinkbike, Enve just had a massively bad review (2 failed wheels) right when they are trying to sell the company. Such bad timing in a very crowded market.

Re: Suzuki Jimny

Sounds like an appliance to me. Not something I'd like to live with. But that's just me. I think we as designers (if anyone) should hope for better. How about inspiring? Enjoyable? A great overall experience? Something you love? Something you want to keep? R You're not going to like this but yep it...

Re: Suzuki Jimny

I didn't question if it was popular or capable offload, but a good car? ie. one you'd actually want to own/drive. R If it's popular and capable offroad then how could it be a bad car? Looks great, cheap price, drives functionally fine for 90% of the time which is just sitting in traffic, and reflec...

Re: Karim Rashid Collection - Gorenje

I wonder if something like this limits itself even more than normal because i think it only really makes sense if you buy all of them. If you only get 1 I am not sure what else in your kitchen would match.

Re: FRUSTRATING Online Design Thinking Course

I believe some of these programs are doing a better job - UCI sought me out because they consider me a subject matter expert and preferred having me teach the course as opposed to, like you describe, an academic who might only have a script to follow. I'm breaking away from the examples they provid...

Re: FRUSTRATING Online Design Thinking Course

What I like is that people without design abilities, particularly management, can take these courses and learn a little bit more about design. What then happens is they often come away and are ready to revolutionise their stagnant business by using design (which I think is a good thing). The problem...

Re: Industrial Design vs Product Design

I reckon it would be too confusing. The way I have heard product design being used lately is more in relation to graphic design not industrial.

Suzuki Jimny

I dont know if you have these in the States yet but I have just seen a couple of the new Suzuki Jimny's that have just been released in Australia. I really like the styling and it looks like a fun little 4wd.

Re: Newly Released Work (All Product Types)

Nice Michael! Is the quartz difficult to get accurate enough to fit nicely into the base? They seem to be pretty accurate with sizing and we have a test base they need to fit in before sending. It's more difficult to get such a large piece of quartz that doesn't break when cut to size. The reject r...

Re: Newly Released Work (All Product Types)

This is a self project my wife and I are just about to release. I designed her a CNC'd jewelry box with a solid quartz lid for fine jewelry and reckon it has come out really well.
Cheers

Re: How Amazon Now Shapes What Our Stuff Looks Like

Looks like the next step in the tide pod challenge. I wonder how many people will try to smash down one of these in 1 go.
With the styling I thought it was a carton of orange juice in the kitchen.

Re: HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU BE SHOT DOWN?

Alright, just got shot down again from a dream job. I'm talented, have real-world experience and am a hard-worker. Have you asked them why they didn't hire you? I know it's awkward and the last thing you might want to do but it might be a good thing to just ask to have a chat with someone from ther...
