Re: Project: 1 Strike Hammer

Seriously though, thanks for the info on brass hammers. We were not aware of all of that. As we go through the second iteration it will be fun to play with some of this feedback. You didn't know brass hammers existed? Did you not do any research on this during your design process? Did you know that...

Re: Project: 1 Strike Hammer

Pricing on this came back ridiculously high so we are redesigning it a bit for manufacturing Do you not consider manufacturing processes while you are designing?! I feel like you fell somewhere in the middle of "art products" and normal functional design. It's not sculptural or beautiful enough in ...

Re: Applying/Modeling Textures

Each row is most likely a circular pattern of a lofted cut--hexagon lofting to a single point. The fade is the tricky part, I can't think of an easy way of doing that in solidworks without individually creating each one.

Can you flatten it out and bend it back? As cool as it is I'm having difficulty believing it's actually useful

Re: ATS-friendly resumes for designers

I wonder if there is a site where you can upload your resume and get a preview of what the algorithm will do to it?

I've been concerned about this in the past as well, fearful that my aesthetically-pleasing PDF is doing more harm than good.

Re: Comment section removed from blog post

Free speech, as long as they agree with you, I suppose. A website allowing you to comment on an editorial has nothing to do with free speech. How do you feel your 1st amendment rights are being violated? Is it a sponsored post? Why delete comments if it isn't? I just think it's a weak approach, esp...

Comment section removed from blog post

Stay classy, core77. There were a few negative comments on the "Decoding the design language of the 2019 Lexus ES350" post, written by a cofounder of core77. Now the comments section has been removed completely. Free speech, as long as they agree with you, I suppose. One person said the grill is ugl...

Re: Looking to relocate

Well you have a family so you can just get up and move somewhere without a job lined up, I assume. So doesn't it just depend on what you see on the job board? What position are you looking for? Junior ID? There's some neat info here: https://www.citylab.com/design/2014/07/americas-leading-design-cit...

Re: QUIRKY

I've recently been involved with a licensing agent who was pitching a portfolio of potential licensors to partner with and they pushed Quirky hard. Went on and on about the value of the name and the crowd source model. I listened to the pitch and then asked "did't they go bankrupt after spending an...

Re: Which monitor should I get?

My jaw dropped to the floor when I saw LG's 43-inch monitor . It's a true 4K monitor, not a TV, and it was on sale for less than $500. http://www.lg.com/us/business/images/commercial-display/bd00030241/gallery/FRONT-W-INFILL-PDP_Zoom_01.jpg *clicks link, sees price* https://media.giphy.com/media/4p...
