Studio VS Agency VS Consultancy VS Firm May 20, 13, 9:59 a.m.
A question for everyone: How do you determine which noun is the proper semantic when describing you design/creative business?
To give some background - The company I currently work for is a wholly-owned subsidiary of a much larger company. We are a small group - about 15 employees, and are wondering what is the best term to describe this venture.
Studio - we feel studio might earmark us as 'too small' for our audience. Although our staff is relatively low we don't want to give the impression that we are just a couple of people in someones garage.
Agency - We feel this makes us appear larger than we are, although the term is not inaccurate. We just don't want to be mistaken for a really large agency.
Consultancy - this makes it sound like we don't actually do the work but rather simply 'consult' on it.
Firm - too boring?
Anyway, i'm curious to see what others think.
Internet laptop things May 20, 13, 6:49 a.m.
You know those netbook/Chromebook/small laptop things you can get these days – are they any good?
I quite fancy something with a proper keyboard that is portable that I can chuck in a messenger back that doesn't cost the earth.
I'm an Apple fan but blowing £1000+ on an Air or 13" MacBook is a little out of my budget these days so I don't mind sacrificing OS X if I'm only really using it for internet and basic document creation/editing.
What do you peeps say? Anyone got one?

Photos like this May 17, 13, 3:31 p.m.
I'm trying to get mood boards for a project, I want to go the dark/ gritty/ wtf route that Chris Cunningham has, but for photography.
Would love some suggestions on more examples if you guys have any.
Pantone Overseas May 17, 13, 1:35 p.m.
I am working on a project where we are sourcing products from Asia (China, Thailand and Vietnam).
The products are made with different colors of threads and we want very specific pantone colors for each string used. Most of the people Im talking too either don't know pantone or use the pantone website to get close (which of course is always off) or use their own color system.
I could of course send over a pantone book but they are expensive and we are sourcing from 20-30 different places.
My question is... Does anyone have any idea how I can create color sheet with 30-40 colors? Any other ideas how to communicate overseas about color? Do other countries use other color systems we could convert too that would make it easier?
Long question, thanks for any suggestions.
partnership set up May 17, 13, 1:09 p.m.
I need some advice on how one would set up a partnership with a few people.
My main issue is how do you determine how revenue is split.
what happens when a project(s) only requires some of the partners and not all?
does anybody have a model in place that has worked?
