Freelance-friendly mortage lenders Feb 12, 13, 7:46 p.m.
OK, it's boring I know... Sorry.
I understand that a lot of lenders make it very difficult to get a home loan when your income is unstable/based on freelance work. I just wondered if anyone on here had recently had a positive experience with any particular institution? Perhaps a lender that was slightly more sympathetic to those of us without a fixed monthly income.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
Lies about graphic design Feb 1, 12, 4:22 p.m.
What rules and nuggets of advice were you told as a fledgeling designer that, over the course of your career, you've since found to be complete nonsense?
Type help - U&lc x-height Jul 6, 11, 8:56 a.m.
Looking for a font / some fonts where the upper and lower case both have the same x-height. ANy suggestions? Was pretty sure House Industries had a couple but can't for the life of me remember the name or collection.
Today's design heroes Jan 20, 11, 5:39 p.m.
Seeing Carson over there in the EC made me smile, I'm actually putting together a talk at the minute and wondered who you guys figured to be held up as today's design heroes?
In 98/99 when I was first learning about type and design I was learning about Tomato, Vaughn Oliver, Carson, Brody, Frost and Sagmeister.
Who are today's equivalents 12 years later?
Any thoughts welcome.
Script typefaces Nov 10, 10, 12:49 p.m.
I'd usually try and get this kind of thing done for real but, what are the best script typefaces you've come across recently?
Animating bump maps in C4D Nov 9, 10, 2:53 p.m.
Hey anyone know about animating bump maps / sub-polygon displacements in Cinema 4D? I'm trying to do something but hitting a problem. The camera basically treats the peak of the bump map as the focus so the base drops away when it increases. I don't know if that makes any sense...? If you can help I can drop you a movie file to explain.
Moustache NYC Sep 23, 10, 11:36 a.m.
Anyone on here know the guy/girl behind the Moustache tags in New York? Need to get in touch with him/her.
Assuming they're not American from the spelling.
Ian Wright AIGA Talk Sep 13, 10, 7:38 a.m.
Just wanted to put a shout out to those in NY in September. The really very awesome Ian Wright is giving a talk for the AIGA on September 22nd. Tickets and details here:
Ian's site as a refresher: http://www.mrianwright.co.uk/
What's in a name? Jun 21, 10, 2:33 p.m.
So I just logged in and there's a guy called craigward posting stuff like Mindfuck 5000...
I'm not sure how I feel about that. For the record; craigward = not me.
Terrible typography posters Feb 17, 10, 8:45 a.m.
I received an email this morning from Fontlab selling these posters:
I replied saying they were hideous, uninteresting and just plain wrong in some cases.
They replied telling me "beauty is in the eye of the beholder"and that some of them had won awards. Anyone here beholding any beauty or am I being unduly harsh?
Processing coder required Feb 10, 10, 9:46 a.m.
This should probably be in jobs but it's just a one off. My agency Grey is collaborating with an architectural journal on a large feature on our new offices. We would like to produce an infographic showing how we use the space using processing. For more details drop me a line at
Turkish rip off artists Feb 2, 10, 5:22 p.m.
Hey peeps, you might want to spend a minute trawling this Turkish clothing site (if you can be bothered) as they're using some of my work (http://tinyurl.com/ybbe2) amongst other people's without even attempting to seek permission.
I'd be less pissed if it were some students but this place seems like a pretty big site?
Wheels are turning...
Alan Shepard audio Jan 25, 10, 9:50 a.m.
Anyone know where I could find an mp3 or some audio of Alan Shephard saying his famous "Let's light this candle" quote? Tried the NASA site and youtube, just going round in circles now.
Shapeways help Jan 4, 10, 7:59 p.m.
Anyone out there familiar with the Shapeways upload process (http://www.shapeways.com)?
I've created a pretty simple model of some extruded text in cinema 4d but I'm getting errors with the model - something to do with manifolds and normals. I'm sure it's a 10 minute fix for someone with the relevant expertise, maybe we could trade for a print or something by way of thanks?
Anyone willing to help drop me a line at info at wordsarepicures dot co dot uk.
360 camera live feed Dec 1, 09, 2:44 p.m.
Feel like I saw something online a while ago where someone had used a 'football' camera - like the ones used for google earth and did a version where they'd filmed and you could change what you were viewing in realtime. Ring any bells?
3D collaboration Oct 26, 09, 6:07 p.m.
Any 3d whizzes out there fancy helping me out with a personal piece I'm playing with? Drop me line if so...

Monospace Oct 23, 09, 10:47 a.m.
Quick Q: Is there a way to monospace a body of text in InDesign or illustrator using a font that isn't actually monospaced? Effectively over-riding any spacing information you have for that font?
New York Graffiti Hotspots Oct 20, 09, 11:11 a.m.
NYC peeps, anyone recommend/suggest areas or streets where paste ups and stencils are particularly rife?
Faille Oct 9, 09, 9:44 a.m.
I need to get in touch with the guys at Faille regarding a nice commission, does anyone on here know them personally? I hate just sending probing emails to info@...
If you could drop me a line on my email that'd be awesome.
