Start-up Contest Mar 14, 13, 2:15 p.m.
We are on the verge of our agency rebrand and website re-design launch. To help support that and drum up additional PR and visibility in the community, we are about to kick off our annual "Leg Up" initiative.
Thought you all might be interested in checking out the entrants, or perhaps even voting for the participants.

NBA 2012 - 2013 Jul 2, 12, 8:12 a.m.
Atrocity Alert: Dwight Howard. Here's a guy who demanded a trade (try to demand a transfer with the guy who pays you) all year, shut down for the last third of the season, complained loudly about everything, had his coach fired, trashed his ownership, signed an extension, then said he claimed he didn't know what he was doing and was 'blackmailed,' and is now demanding a trade again, but only to the team of his choice. That team, incidentally, has no championship aspirations, only the potential for more endorsements revenue. Those of you who need an NBA villain, he's ready made. And dude can't even hit a free-throw.
Retro Stock Houses Jun 27, 12, 12:41 p.m.
Any good stock houses out there for nostalgic photography from the 40's and 50's? Looking for that cheeky style of simple photography. Girls in sock-hop dresses, drive-in movie theaters, pop culture stuff, etc.
Cool Story, Bro Jun 13, 12, 4:31 p.m.
Got a new number last month. Get about 20-30 calls a day for this guy. Finally yesterday someone texted about the "first big check" coming in the mail, and looking forward to seeing me on the river this weekend.
So I called the guy back, and it turns out that I have this guy's old phone number: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jef…
Pretty cool, I guess. My first quasi-brush with celebrity.
Anyway, continue on, just had to share that with someone somewhere.
Must-Have Interaction Design Books May 21, 12, 5:49 a.m.
Just looking for a solid listing. Thinking about picking up a few new good reads.
Books for Art Directors Apr 10, 12, 8:37 p.m.
I have a guy who we just promoted to Junior Art Director, real spunky and creative guy, but he has zero management experience. He's a great creative leader, but he wants some stuff to read to improve his studio and people management skills. I have what I know over the years in my head that I've been imparting over time, but was having a hard time pin-pointing specific books for him to read tonight. It's been a while since I've even had time to look at my own bookshelf! "The War of Art" is on my list for him, as well as "The Seed," but could use some other good references. I know there are a few that I've read out there, but for some reason I simply can't think of any of them right now. Hoping you guy can assist!
Website Reference Mar 14, 12, 11:07 p.m.
I can't even think of the right way to explain the example I'm looking for. I want to call it experiential, but that's not exactly right. Essentially, it's a gridded website layout where "pages" or content areas of a site lie outside of the viewport and slide around vertically or horizontally on a grid based on interaction. I have a project I'm working on right now that I need some samples to show to a client during a pitch and riff off of the overall concept. I've seen several examples over the years, but can't recall any right now.
Thanks in advance for any help.
UI Font Mar 9, 12, 1 p.m.
Someone posted a font in the last year or so that was actually UI elements. Any leads on this? Couldn't find it in the Useful Thread, but might have missed it too.
Android App Design Mar 2, 12, 12:31 p.m.
I have done a couple of iOS apps now, but never a Droid-only app. What are the best practices for designing to these 1000 different screen sizes for a native app?
Thanks, could really use some insight on this.
WTF Feb 29, 12, 11:54 a.m.
I found Beckett Light on wtf.com which is close, but not the same. Thanks.
Wall Hanging Jan 9, 12, 2:34 p.m.
Just moved into a new place, looking for something large, white and interesting to go above my couch, on a grey wall. Could be a sculpture, a painting, a large print.
Open to any ideas.
WTF Jan 5, 12, 1:31 p.m.
Have a client who insists on using this weak ass script font over some photos on their photo portfolio site. Pretty lame, but eh, I'm in no mood to fight it:
Google Sign-up Dec 23, 11, 2:51 p.m.
Nice new sign-up page/process. Kind of funny though, you enter all the info on the 1st step, hit Next, and suddenly you're at step 3 and complete.
Also, what's up with the huge Google Wave logo vs. the other core apps? Strange to see Wave—on its way out—larger than YouTube, Gmail and G+.
Fuse/Swedish House Mafia Dec 16, 11, 8:14 p.m.
It must cost a shitload of money to get YouTube to host your video AND remove their branding from the sub-area site temporarily.
Woodcut Imagery Dec 15, 11, 7:55 p.m.
Any good resources for finding older illustrations/woodcut/diagrams that are in public domain or free to use?
Keynote for iPad Dec 14, 11, 7:41 p.m.
Did some poking around and couldn't find a definitive yes or no to this question.
If I create a Keynote presentation on my iMac, will the iPad version support ALL of the animations types? The app description in the App Store is vague enough that I could assume each answer is correct.
I am doing a preso for our sales team to use in our other offices, and we don't have an iPad sitting around right now (we gave them all to the sales team, doh).
Thanks for any info.
SEO Question Dec 14, 11, 8:03 a.m.
I know a fair bit about SEO, but I've run into an issue that I hadn't really thought about before.
I was analyzing inbound traffic to my site, and it appears that a lot of traffic (17%!) seems to be coming from mobile devices. So I pulled up my site on mobile and realized that my mobile redirect script is keeping users who use search strings via Google from hitting sub-pages to my site (projects specifically), therefore I'm not getting the overall correct PageRank for those sub-pages thanks to this mobile setup.
For example, a typical user might search for a string related to some project I've done (in this case, "bloom", such as the one that follows (4th or so link from the top to DM.com) http://anonym.to/?http://www.goo…
On mobile, when they hit that page, I can't tell if it's registering the actual page visit, or if the re-direct is executing so fast that the page visit isn't counted, and instead I'm not getting any weighted value for these types of searches.
Thought I would throw this out to the masses... I am about to knock out a new site, and don't want to make the same mistake if I am doing this wrong.
Thanks in advance.
.AN Domain Nov 17, 11, 2:39 p.m.
Not having the best of luck finding info on registering .AN domains. Anyone in the Netherlands that can assist me with local presence—I'll compensate them for their time and assistance?
Is this TLD even still around and able to be registered, or is it deprecated?
Streaming Oct 22, 11, 1:12 p.m.
Having some fun this Saturday with my housemate, and we're trying to figure out how we can get Serato (in our basement, in the dance area), through to our Airport Express, so it can be playing upstairs as well during our Halloween party. Any suggestions?
We setup Rogue Amoeba's stuff and got that working, but after looking into streaming, it doesn't seem like there's a way to do this on the iPhone or iPad.
Disappearing Oct 22, 11, 10:48 a.m.
Do you think it's possible to disappear anymore? I'm talking abandon bills, car, student loan payments, etc and go hide in a foreign country.
