Re: Freelance job, on-site?

I would agree $15 a hour is way to low even if it a student- especially if they are looking for a person with any type of skills in those areas - and for Chicago...,.. This is surprising to me, $15 being too low for a student. Interning for a Chicago consultancy? I thought $20's were for high level...

Re: Freelance job, on-site?

$15 is low end intern pay in Chicago for an industrial designer, not sure about model maker. Also, they might just mean that ideally you would be available during regular business hours so you can show up to the office. Some clients prefer freelancers to be there, some don’t.

Re: Help Choosing Project

Welcome to core77 - awesome to hear you're almost done with school! Well, consider what kind of area of ID you'd like to get into, like consumer electronics or furniture. What places are you hoping to get in? It helps to think about the end goal... Where do you want to work at and why? What work do ...

Re: Employment ads that want it all..

I think it’s reasonable for a young ID to have an understanding of these things, but to expect sophisticated aesthetic sensibility and high proficiency in delivery in all those areas, even after three years out of school, is stretching it IMO... but most importantly the pay should reflect that. For ...

Here's a 1.5 hr long podcast where Chris Do talks about his personal background. It's very transparent. It was my first intro to him and gave me a special appreciation for his Futur/Skool videos.

Re: Gmay3's Sketching Journey

Great job tackling this aerodynamic territory! Even when drawing people these days I still draw in a basic skeleton/block foundation. I imagine with cars it's the easiest thing to do compared to the rest of the car. At least you'll have proportions going for you and people can critique the rest!

Re: T-Mobile free line for life.. worth it?

That's sounds awesome! I guess they need to do that to stay competitive atm. It's free service up to the point they decide to stop it (or not allow it to be grandfathered anymore). I don't know if there's a catch, but so far I would do it.

Re: Hoping to get some feedbacks for my campaign

Hi Xiao, wishing you lots of luck with your kickstarter! Great work putting it together! I agree with ralphzoontjens in regards to the product photography. In the image I'm linking, it looks uncomfortable to hold. Check out how the pinky has to support that. Maybe it's the most comfortable thing eve...

Re: Looking to improve

Can't find 15 minutes each day? 250gb I'd challenge you to try sketching in 5 minutes. :P That's a good quote yo. I have been [s]trying[/s] cutting back on my usage of "trying" when I communicate my intentions to others... I noticed it makes me sound and become more confident. A little mental trick.

Re: Share your sources: Inspirations for mechanical solution

That's a great link - thanks for sharing it! I used to lack a mechanical mindset that would help with ideating functionality. What helped me the most was analyzing complex products like power tools. Knowing how the parts are made (i.e. injection molding, overmolds, bosses), what the internals are, a...

Re: "Budget" Cad prodgrams

I learned Rhino in school, but I modeled in Solidworks at my first design job. The past month I modeled entirely in Fusion360 for personal projects. Solidworks experience is transferable to Fusion, but I am unsure what it's like to transition from a Fusion workflow to either Rhino or Solidworks. I l...

Re: Is Industrial Design Very Technical / Engineering Relate

Design can be tough because there's a lot of ambiguity. There's ambiguity in the product development process and in your own career. For example, someone can aspire to design for Apple and dedicate an immense amount of time and effort into developing a portfolio to apply with, and turns out that App...
