Someone should cut out an original set of kidneys and tape them to the front like roadkill.

Re: Sharing your salary with coworkers

New York publishes the salaries of all state employees, but in my experience (especially with a wife, mother and sister who are all public school teachers) it tended to have the opposite effect. 1 - Public workers are mostly unionized, which means their wages are almost completely gated by long, gru...

Re: A.I. "designed" cars

IMO, AI will continue to replace tasks which meet two conditions: 1 - They can be described as having a solution which is "good" or "bad". (A picture of a face can be objectively considered good or bad, as can the design of a product). AND 2 - The costs associated with the human labor of creating or...

Re: Sharing your salary with coworkers

As an employee, I've never shared my salary with anyone besides my wife. Even my close friends really don't need to know how much I'm earning. I don't even know how much my brother makes for a living. Perhaps I'm an older generation than the average millennial today, but why should your salary have ...

Re: Good examples of ID portfolios

Coroflot is a good place to start. My view of what makes a good portfolio shifts dramatically based on the experience of the hire and a skillset that I would be most looking for in that candidate. But in general my mental priorities looking at any portfolio: 1 Sketching (Ability to ideate on a brief...

Re: GM Death Watch

All of our BMW critiques will be in vain when everything becomes an SUV. The sedan is a dying breed.

Re: modeling the rear surface of iMac

Apple does all their exterior surfacing with Alias, more than likely this is a single span surface with the CV's in the middle pulled out to plump it up. Getting that single surface to line up nicely in the radiused corners is usually the tricky part, but because the parting line is inset I think th...

Re: What is BMW doing?

The only commentary I can add is I got to see the new 8 series (coupe and pre-production convertible) + X7 yesterday. In real life the 8 series is a very nice looking thing, and the X7 isn't as bad as I expected for a huge box. The buck tooth grilles are ridiculous, but in proportions with how huge ...

Re: Dad Projects

Nice! Wish I'd built more of my kids furniture. Love the ASL block, by the way! Now I'm inspired to make something for my kids.... Not sure you saw in the older hearing aid post a while back, but in addition to me now wearing a hearing aid my son was born with a mild bi-lateral hearing loss as well...

Dad Projects

It's been 13 years since I attempted a piece of furniture, but finally did something for the babies room and was happy how it turned out so I thought I'd share. We bought him a nice bedroom set, but wanted an extra low book shelf that would fit under his window and double as an end table. It's an aw...

Re: Project: 1 Strike Hammer

This reminds me of something my dad had hanging in the garage when I was a kid. It was a very similar nicely finished Wooden frame with a gold plated/painted screw mounted neatly on a black felt frame with the word "Yourself" printed underneath. Took me a while as a kid to get it, but I get the same...

Re: Anybody else feel like this some days?

I had a bar code scanner that I worked on that was purely a high end design story. The president of the company at the time forced it ahead and we fought very hard not to water down or compromise the design. It wound up winning a ton of design awards but ultimately was a total commercial flop. I was...
