Stag Do - London May 21, 13, 1:39 p.m.
It's looking like I need to organise a stag do for a colleague next weekend.
It has to be in London for reasons I won't bother listing. He's a little bit goth/emo, so I'd love to force him to do some more "mainstream" stuff.
Has anyone gone to a good one in London? What did you do?
Any ideas for a rough itinerary, things to do? We're looking to kick off around 1pm.
Any ideas greatly appreciated!
starting a design business May 21, 13, 1:40 p.m.
Anyone got any tips or wisdom from doing this? I'm planning on incorporating a practice that will be about 50% internal product design/incubation and 50% consultation. Thought I'd ask as I'm sure more than a few of you have probably dove into this kind of thing dreaming of career independence.

That are not as shitty as Shepherd Faireybaby or Bankstuy.

Any other annoying, trending, tired expressions out there?
LA Life May 21, 13, 7:12 p.m.
So, in probably a little over a year the wife, kid and I will be upping sticks and moving to LA from the midwest, as the wife is going to work in production design for TV and possibly some movies, hooray.
I've only been to LA a couple of times about 10 years ago and the parts I saw were awful - I liked Venice, but the rest of the places I saw were crowded, run-down and entirely uninspiring.
Of course there's this great legend about the place, being genuinely cool and interesting and varied and diverse and laid back, only I've seen none of that. I know there are LA folks on here who love the place - what should I be looking forward to, considering I'm actually moving there from a conservative, cultural desert, but am actually a lefty, technohead vegan eurotrash type guy ?
Anywhere in the USA May 21, 13, 7:16 p.m.
Random question: If you could go anywhere in the USA right now, this very moment, where would you go? why?
You're at a party and... May 21, 13, 9:33 p.m.
someone asks you:
"So, what do you do?"
What do you tell them? Does that answer vary depending on who is asking?
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?
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.

every body loves hentai and everybody loves sandwiches... another useless Tumblr, with great grid layout, to spent afternoons...
CSS WebKit image buttons? May 20, 13, 10:28 a.m.
Does anyone know how to turn the bottom ImageWipe into a button so it can link to another page when mouse over?
The main article is here
I've tried putting image links in but think i'm doing it wrong :S
Name this design style May 20, 13, 11:09 a.m.
I know it's kind of hipster-y but does it have a name? It reminds me of Delaunay Triangulation but that's more related to fracturing photographs.

Smart move? Or will they screw it up?
