QBN IS HYPER TODAY! Aug 25, 09, 10:04 a.m.
SO MUCH SPEED ON THIS FORUM AND I HAVE HAD WAAAAAAAAAAY TOO MUCH CAFFEINE!
QBN is full of uninspired threads lately Aug 23, 09, 5:11 p.m.
including this thread.
can't we do something stimulating? a new collaboration thing? ideas!!! mon then...
Can you Aug 19, 09, 6:40 p.m.
sometimes step back and look at graphic design from the perspective and interests in life of someone not being one?
this is hard. but the better you can, the less disappointed you will be and you will find out that most people will regard designers as DTP technicians with a 'fancy' feel for 'pretty' images.
in fact, if you are going to go any further, intellectually, or in dive deeper in whatever clever semantic double layer, people will bounce back and think about ANYthing but design.
in other words, design in the 21st century should only cater our pavlovian mentality, nothing more. Clients will only think they pay extra for it.
Developers will be far better off than designers.
Functionality prevails for most clients, but not in the sense of a "grid", or helvetica. no, to them SEO matters, webforms, email marketing response etc.
It's where the money is.
*another* exploded iPhone Aug 25, 09, 7:26 a.m.

google maps resource thread Aug 24, 09, 6:07 p.m.
i have this crazy idea of doing something with google maps as a self initiated project. i've been having it for a while and think it is time to carry this out. i have *just* enough coding knowledge to freak around a bit with the API.
Anyway, one thing i always wondered, you can't change the look/colors of the existing map material, eh? i believe you can only work with overlays, polygons etc.
Anyway, let's gather all information, resources and hacks in the coming days, here in this thread.

Dutchies: Holy KK documentary! Aug 20, 09, 3:35 p.m.
Anyone saw it tonight? Erik Kessels (KesselsKramer) way of thinking is so damn refreshing.
I was thinking of posting up the recording of the hour long documentary, but i'd need to do subtitles first. (i recorded it)..
maybe, if enough people are seriously interested i could go ahead and make work of it...
and luckily for foreign fans, an english article about the director and about her 2 latest documentaries, one of them this one about Kessels:
here is the KesselsKramer publishing website, featuring the insane amount of books they keep shitting out, very inspiring:
In the docu you will also see that Kessels keeps these huge wooden shipping boxes in a warehouse, full of unknown family albums and slides he finds on flee markets on very early mornings across Amsterdam and abroad...
what the Wink? Aug 25, 09, 11:48 a.m.
is it me or does the first url still load the old site?
i am having sleepless nights about this issue.
you wished it was youtubed Aug 24, 09, 8:05 a.m.
dutch article today:
drunk guy as last passenger in bus arrives at final destination near the racing circuit "Zandvoort". Driver gets off bus as his job is done for the day. Drunk guy takes his chance and steals the bus and drives it onto the circuit. Drunken driver doesn't realize the circuit isn't made for busses and hits a bridge, completely dismantling the top of the bus, airco installation etc. Police on motorbike tries to catch drunken bus driver on circuit and finally arrests him. Drunken driver now says he can't remember a thing. Black hole in his memory.
The true tragedy ofcourse is that it wasn't filmed. :(
WTF technical/ISO Aug 20, 09, 9:12 a.m.

logic? Sep 8, 09, 4:49 p.m.
so, if jesus would have less time on his hands he would only save the believers? not like, normally, but you know, if the going gets though he goes for all man, especially the believers.
i don't get it.
