Yes cg, it's not a continuous flow like the gels (my gripe as well). The gradation is minimal below the .5mm nib though. I haven't had any issues with the hi-tec clogging near as much as the bics i was using. Have you used the bic orange fine before? I just order a set from a store in the UK...I've ...

These are amazing ball point pens. The ink flow is very smooth for a ball (it feels like a gel, but won't smear like a gel). The tips are strong, but will be rendered useless of dropped on the tip. They are of course refillable. Google them on the net. I think there is a Japanese supply store in San...

moldable chipboard

What I'm looking for is basically smooth paper pulp (think egg carton), however after speaking with two pulp manufacturers, they cannot achieve a smooth "egg carton" with paper pulp. Does anyone know if there is a process out there to accomplish this? Like taking a sheet of chipboard and molding it ...

http://www.cnn.com/2006/POLITICS/11/07/voting.problems.ap/index.html This makes me cringe. Why don't they cut and paste the same article every election? We (ID folks) are problem solvers, and this is a problem. Is there anybody out there in our profession working on it? Why are we compromising democ...

ID Night Classes in SF

Any recommendations for the topics in the evening:
1. Advanced rendering (hand)
2. Alias

Looked at the Academy (what an annoying process, try calling to ask a simple question, and you talk to like 8 people) and checked with CCA. Did I miss anything obvious?

The main problem is that the faculty is just stuck designing 25 years ago, hasn't kept up with the industry Agreed. This was my biggest complaint while there. Would you be happy spending 120K for a car and getting a used Civic? The value of a risd id education is in the theme of this recent discuss...

The department is what you make of it. Unfortunately the professional practice areas are poor. They're not going to crack a whip at you to push yourself. You decide how far you want to go with your work. Especially now that you're going into upper-level studios. Want to learn new processes, solution...

Well, as a recent RISD alumni I don't think this person reflects the school – although he should realize that in your company, he is representing RISD. Were these flags detected during the interview process? You mentioned he is your second intern, how is the first doing? Is the internship paid? It...

I'm going with closed-cell for durability. They are much harder to tear than PU, and don't absorb water when punctured. I've been searching for about 6 months now, discovering not much exists in the world of eco-foam. I have discovered there is a great opportunity for someone to develop such a mater...

get a product into urban outfitters?

Does anyone know how to submit a product for review to urban outfitters?

I'm sure they use a buyer – anyone have experience with that?
