Re: gifts for under $77

Woah, I did not mean to imply that is was "so bad", just that it seems different from previous years. I could be wrong. Maybe it was just my initial take on it but it seemed a bit less focused on design/products and more focused on sustainability. Perhaps I should look at it again.

Re: Consultancy Holiday Cards?

Wow, that is a really well-done ecard. We send a few cards and a few gifts to clients that have become more like friends. We also send a lot of Richart chocolates to our clients overseas.

Re: Squeek

The characters are interesting but the preview is all over the place and the animation seems really choppy and beginner-level. It also seems like the wrong place to post this.

Yo, I think that phone was done by Waterman's group. He has really turned their line into something. Nice find.

yup

I think that I have fallen into the same type of trap. It makes you appreciate how difficult it is to do a really good logo - takes a lot of talent and thought.

Re: Give me your design voice please

Sounds like a good idea for a variation on professional tourism, which is said to be growing in popularity. The key for me to buy into something like this and actually book-it would be believing that the logistics were highly reliable and resolved and that the accommodations related to the trip were...

Nice Logo

logo.png Many of you probably know that these guys sponsor design competitions and that the founder, Cameron Sinclair, is an ID lover. Anyway, I think that they did a great job with their new logo.

Re: Stone & Co Recruiter

I have known of stone and Co since the late 80's/ early 90's and always found them to be very professional and knowledgeable. They are not as embedded in the industry events as other recruiters nor as aggressive but they give excellent advice and offer a wide range of positions.

good point

F1

I would miss F1 and NASCAR too but those guys are pretty smart and should be able to figure out a way to run their business on renewable resources. It would require changes but sooner or later that is going to happen anyway.
