Coming up! Who's ready?


The Unbelievable Challenge

Architectural ideas competition. The winner will be awarded an internship at Snøhetta. Who is the mysterious, world-famous client?


Mac Mail question

So im guessing this is no secret, but the mail junk feature is useless. In the settings I have it set to move junk mail to the junk folder, but it doesnt actually do that. Just puts it all in my inbox anyway.

Any way around this, and apps to install to make it work?


THC Liquid

Who has, where can i get this?


T-Shirt Printing Companies

Does anybody recommend a t-shirt printing company? I recently used Cafe Press which was complete crap in quality. Most of my designs can be set up using a screen but one of them would need to be full-color.

I am thinking of using:

Recommendations appreciated :)

Looking for some constructive criticism.


Canon super offer


You can pre-buy the new Canon 7D Mark II and get a EF 24 - 70mm f/4L IS USM for only 400$ instead of 1,320$

That's a super great offer! Reviews are good for that lense.


Game design books

Any QBNers recommend any inspiring books on games, low budget - high budget designing and building games, old and new game studios, game art and that kind of shizzle?.


Music Books

Can anyone recommend any inspiring books on a great musician? Either a book you've read, heard of, has a great book design, or a musician you're just a great fan of that has a book written about them.


Suicide by Crocodile…

After 2 years away from being a paid graphic designer, I'm getting back in the game. Any advice?

yay or nay


Kate Bush live

Kate's back!

Kate's front!

She was in such good form Saturday night, telling us how much she loved us, god the audience just lapped it up,
there were some folks near us in raptures, a bit annoying to be honest as they whooped and hollered at
every opportunity. There were some celebs, a couple of seats in front was Moby - celebrating his 49th,
the reason I know this was I had read it in the 'i paper' on the train going down, he was sat with his
young son (?) who was dressed identical to him, jeans/t-shirt, shaved head! he was the youngest person I saw there.

The programmes are really beautiful (of course) and were worth the £15 - there were lovely posters too
and the T-shirts which have wings on the back were £25. All the hoola about having ID etc was not enforced,
they just scanned the tickets and we were in. The general vibe was so chill and relaxed - nothing to do with the
3 pints and a spliff we'd had before we went in. The first half hour was a few odd LP tracks, Top of The City and
Running Up That Hill were good but the revelation was an incredibly powerful, goose pimply version of
King Of The Mountain, which made the single sound weak in comparison, it was the nearest she came to rocking out.

The main course was The Ninth Wave in the first half and the stage gets transformed from the normal set you
see in the pics, and it becomes a mix of theatre, film and WTF, and her voice was spot on throughout, any doubts
about her not cutting it were swept away, she really was as good as you'd hope she would be.
Although the second half of A Sky Of Honey from Aerial was hit and miss for me, there were still the theatrics and some
beautiful backdrops film of birds and the moon etc but the piece as a whole was a bit self indulgent and I suppose after
the first half being so good it was hard to top. It came to a bit of a Eh? moment half way through when her son
Bertie sang a song, and to be honest he cannot sing at all, and that was almost painful to hear, but the polite applause
he received was for who he was more than what he'd just subjected us to.

She finished off with a few more album tracks and a good run through of Cloudbusting and then she was off.
The show finished at around 11 and of course the queues at the tube were pretty grim, along with train delays
at Euston and a packed last train home I didn't get in until gone half 2am so was pretty shattered yesterday
but the abiding memories are of a fantastic experience and well worth the money, hassle and wait.


Places to post Dev Jobs

Other than Krop, which is obviously the best place, where is good to post Grad/Junior Dev job ads?

I've found Krop and YCN to produce a high %age of good candidates and was looking for other places that have a similar level of quality applicants. Reed, Monster etc all churned out shit and recruiters.

Natural Portrait Photography

Hello, I'm looking for more examples or photographers capturing natural looking portraits. Not the typically staged 3/4 view stuff we're inundated with.

Shots more like these:

Come across any great examples lately?


Alien Questine

An alien species of 60 million specimens lands on earth and informs the world that they want to begin co-habitating earth with humans. In exchange for being allowed to live in unpopulated areas in existing countries, they will supply humanity with science and technology.

They look like pic related and they smell like rotten bananas. On average they have the equivalent of 200 human IQ points. They are quick to assimilate into the cultures of their host countries and speak every human language fluently. They get jobs, commit no crime apart from the occasional petty crime, mostly out of ignorance of the law, and they are contributing taxpaying members of society.

The only problem is that they chose earth to live on because they are a break away religious sect from their planet, and their chief deity is Adolf Hitler, who they learned about by intercepting a Nazi radio transmission from earth in the 1930s. No matter how hard you try, you cannot convince them that Adolf Hitler was bad. They also are not convinced the Holocaust happened, but they don't press the issue. They decorate their homes and neighborhoods with swastikas and they greet each other by saying "sieg heil" and giving a Roman salute. They will often be found bidding on Nazi memorabilia online and at auctions. Once a year, they are required by their religion to travel to Bavaria and pay homage to Adolf Hitler. Other than this though, they are peaceful and non-violent, unless attacked.

Would you be okay with your country hosting 2 million of these creatures in a remote, mostly uninhabited part of your landscape?
