Re: Home Studio Essentials

Love the pictures of the spaces. So much great inspiration here. The camera view for Skype calls is something I have been thinking a lot about. I plan to put quite a bit of art behind my desk, so that should provide a decent back drop. I will also have gator board and post-its up so I can alway pull...

Re: Home Studio Essentials

Thanks everyone. I've been working on it all weekend and will be working all week. I love the "commute" concept. I take the kids to school, so that is kind of my :commute" The basement is a good place where I can have my own space and make it mine. It's unfinished, so I'm turning it into a loft like...

Re: 15 pieces of advice for young designers

ID seems to now be defined by people that arent designers at all. It now seems to be driven by getting the file done by 5PM more than a concientious effort to develop valuable 3D products. To me Justin is a younger designer. Idainc - I'm not sure where this is coming from. I'm also not sure where y...

Re: 15 pieces of advice for young designers

I just got off the phone with one of my old school professors. He dropped this quote on me: “young designers know all the rules, old designers know all the exceptions” ... I’m not sure if that is always true but it has a fun symmetry ‬ So true. This is actually where this list started to build. A f...

15 pieces of advice for young designers

It has been a long time since I have posted on these boards. Life has gotten in the way but I told myself this summer that I was going to try to get back to being active in the Core community again. So hear it goes. I posted this article on LinkedIn and thought I would share. As the new school year ...

Re: When can I expect to start making decent money?

First, congrats on getting your first gig. Thats the first step. To answer your question, it is seriously up to you to prove yourself, show value, and become invaluable to your employer. Not to be harsh, but no one is entitled to give you a high salary. And, no one is going to until you 1) have expe...

Re: 10 years out...What does your portfolio look like?

That is true. you don't want to have a presentation, you want to have a conversation, so engaging right away, learning what they want to talk about, and then showing how you can steer that conversation to hit all of your key points... that is what interviewing for a director or vp position is like....

Re: Design Research Portfolio

Design Research portfolios are all about your process and how you synthesize data to uncover design actionable insights. If I was reviewing your work I would be looking for evidence that you have gotten out into the world to observe people in context to really start to understand how they live, work...

Re: Recent Grad In Need of Advice

It's been a while, but I though I would chime in...:) I totally understand your struggles as well. It took me over 8 months in 2002 to find my first gig. And even that gig was a contracting position. There has been a lot of great advice up here that I will not repeat. I ended up doing over a year of...

Re: Jobs after SCAD Industrial Design

First I will say I don't know that you are asking the right questions here. Choosing your school is a personal decision that should look at your entire educational experience. Judging a school on the dorms is a bit ridiculous. All art schools are expensive, all are going to be competitive and findin...
