Bad Client Feedback

Jazz it up a little.
Make the image Pop!
I will know what’s right when I see it.
Surely it’s only a matter of resizing.
I like your style, but can you change…

Any designer will have one of those nightmare clients ( or manager ) which will cause a creative headache during their career.

My most recent client feedback that has grinded me to a sudden holt of despair are;

  • Can we make sure it’s company premium?
  • Can’t we just use that image I found on Google?
  • The page has far too much info, but can you add these two lines?
  • Very creative! Now can we see the logo back in the right hand corner?
  • Can you blow up this thumbnail image to A1?
  • There’s too much white space *looks down at requested  heavy snowfall Christmas scene*

The following gallery is a selection of Ireland’s creative community who got together to release a lot of pent up anger and sadness through the medium of the A3 poster, all in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

The work was exhibited by the kind folks at The Little Green Café, Bar and Gallery. Nov 2 -7. You can see and purchase the full set of charity artworks here.

Cubify 3D Printer

Las Vegas is this year’s home to the Consumer Electronics show (CES). Currently in its third day, many companies are unveiling exciting new products, gadgets and gizmos.

The one that gets me most excited? The Cubify 3D printer.

Want to see your ideas realised, replace a few lost chess pieces, or simply create something fun and unique? Design your own objects using simple apps for your phone, tablet, computer or Kinect. Send them wirelessly to the printer then see it printing your creation right in front of your eyes. Bringing the world of 3D modelling straight to your doorstep. It’s small, it’s easy to use and it’s not too expensive. Hurrah!

They have even created an online Cubify community to find out more about apps, designs, ideas and sell you creations. Also, Cloud 3D Print; it brings this all to you without the need to purchase a unit for yourself. Just send off your ideas and specifications online then wait eagerly by your door for the postman!

If it hadn’t just been Christmas I would be putting this right at the top of my wish list to Santa!

Limited edition Space Invader Coca-Cola can

Not sure if this is a collaboration between Coca Cola and Space Invader, the Parisian street artist, or with Space Invaders the old skool Japanese video game. In fact, I’m not sure which is cooler so it probably doesn’t matter…

Funky wall clocks made from vinyl records

Saw these wall clocks by Pavel Sidorenko Design made from upcycled vinyl records and thought I’d share a few interesting designs. Non of them, in my opinion, are as good as the one that Yaz made for my birthday a few years ago though – see below.

It’s my birthday again today so maybe I’ll get an even cooler clock (although I can’t think of anything cooler than Jimi Hendrix) and blog about it next year.
