Re: Looking to make a career pivot

Some thoughts... UIUX: You won't be doing much if any programming, low-mid demand, low pay ( although compared to ID its about the same, maybe in the bay you can get higher pay), your ID skills are a perfect match. FED: Front End Development. You do a lot of programming and little to no design. (Hi...

Re: Tesla Model Y

I'm so used to seeing X6's, GLE Coupes, and every other inflated cross-hatch thing that's on the market now it's very predictable. I do suspect it will sell like hot cakes if Elon Musk's tweets don't put them out of business before it launches. Just having some extra tire meat and ride height is eno...

Re: What's the Process Used to Make the Grips on a GoPro?

The depth and crispness should keep in mind: -What texture are you applying over this molded in feature? IE if you use a specific Moldtech texture, gloss finish those will have a minimum required draft. That draft angle will determine how deep you can get before that steel is too sharp or thin. You ...

You're showing renders which probably freaks them out because that's not how the real part looks and they know they won't achieve that level of perfection.

Re: Worst concept to production car fails

another famously close one was the original Dodge Viper I think the best part about the original Viper was they were able to get away with the fact that they could skip adding the roof and windows in production by just telling owners "Drive it when it's sunny, or strap this thing on" https://www.co...

A truly forgotten one!

"Mercury is to be a design-driven brand," said Lincoln-Mercury design director Gerry McGovern after presenting the Messenger concept (pictured) in 2003

Re: Worst concept to production car fails

Kim Kardashian and a fleet of plastic surgeons say "Challenge accepted". Some manufacturers have been better in recent years about making their concepts much closer to "pre-production". BMW for example did a pretty good job of this with the Z4 and 8 series. (Whether or not both concept AND productio...

Re: Sharing your salary with coworkers

I wouldn't be surprised if the shift in "share" vs "don't share" mentality aligns much more closely with age. In the millennial "we're all equal, share your house, share your bike, share your car" economy I see it being much more acceptable that two people with the same title should feel they deserv...

Re: What is BMW doing?

I still won't forget my first and only experience inside the auto industry was at a cross-functional student design/engineering project kickoff with GM in ~2004. The designers came in, gave an impassioned brief about how we were to design an ultra functional and beautiful sports car, like an Ariel A...

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.
