When you come from a school with good reputation, the employer's expectation of you rises too. Some designer told me that they hired an Art Center grad for contract job and was unimpressed. I guess if they hired someone who graduated from a less reputable school, the disappointment wouldn't have bee...

Definitelly, both are 2 aspects of what we generally call ART. On the other hand, a photograph is something composed by already existing objects etc.Instead, design is what you create from scratch. You create the objects, you are the composer. I have seen the work of some graphic designer (mostly f...

Politics. It doesn't seem right for designers to help one another because technically they are competitors. I'm a student, so it doesn't seem right that I help a professional too. If I ask a question on concept, I will be accused of trying to steal other's ideas. If I ask about a research, I will be...

Just a general question on the elevator control panel. You have there level 1~8, so the buttons don't get too high for people on wheelchairs to operate. What if the elevator is for a skyscraper, with 100 levels? I think that is a general problem. I have seen little girl who lives on 15th floor havin...

From my limited experience, IMO there are some reasons for this: Designers can't sketch Manufacturers want them in a matter of days Manufacturers don't want to spend time and money on 3D models It's always the way they've been doing and everyone's happy They don't want designs so complicated that ca...

My point for my post is to say that Taiwan's design environment poses a different set of challenges. It's almost entirely up to the designers to uphold the integrity of design and in the same time to deal with clients who want less. A designer from the US may not actually do well in Taiwan's environ...

I guess that is why taiwan designs and manufactures crap. They don't care about design, or have any form of reputation for design, they have a reputation for...making cheap crap quickly. It seems that you live in the 80s.... Ask yourself why are many jobs running away from the US to Asia? They are ...

Taiwan's environment is different from the US. Clients don't like to waste time by looking at your sketches. In fact, most clients don't want to hear abt your amazing concepts. They just want something that looks decent, cheap to manufacture and sells..... wait, isn't that what all clients wants? An...

MD was big in Asia because people can record songs from CDs and not worry about shock and what not. I agree that it was not that successful, but I never thought it will be big anyway.

I am waiting for MP3 players to become more affordable.
