Help Find Nicholas.

Hey Guys,
This is mainly for QBN'ers living in the Northwest US. but please pass it along.

An ex-coworker of mine from Publicis Seattle has been missing since Feb 13th.Nicholas is an amazing designer and art director, i worked with him when i was an intern and he had been very helpful and is an all around great guy. He is married with 2 children and his wife is pregnant with the third. He talked to his wife and kids before leaving work on Feb 13 that around 6 p.m and he never made it home. Initially there was no trace of his car either but since it has turned up in a Condo parking lot but police is still stumped about his whereabouts. I 'm attaching a few links, please pass it to your friends living in the NW. I hope he turns up safe and sound.

Broadcast help

hey guys need your help on this.
A friend is working on a television logo. She is using "Futura" as the type. They've been testing it to see how it appears on screen and for some reason the legibility is horrible. She's tried different resolutions and sizes but it always appears fuzzy and broken. The production people say its got to do something with the font, which i think is not the problem. She even tried different fonts but the result is the same.

This is the first time she is working on broadcast and i also do not have much knowledge about it. I was wondering if someone would be kind enough to let me know what steps she should take to resolve the problem and any other pointers when designing an identity for a television station. cure my ignorance!!


Jeremy Clarkson, You Idiot.

Jeremy Clarkson, a presenter for Top Gear on British TV, wrote a newspaper editorial that accused privacy activists of being hysterical over giant data-leaks (such as the British government repeatedly losing CDs bearing the financial details for 25 million households). To prove that identity theft wasn't a big deal, he included his bank account details in the article.

Whereupon someone promptly began making fraudulent withdrawals from his account.……

Punk This.

"I mean where does it stop? What if I was wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt, what if I was wearing odd socks, you know.

"I mean obviously the political climate these days is like walking on egg shells, but I mean there's caution and then there's taking it to the point where it's absurd and ludicrous."…

All i can do is laugh about it. Our world has truly become a bad sitcom....just waiting for someone to pull the plug..
