    In that case I'd do aftersketches. Nobody will know but you.

    cash68 got a reaction from streamliner in apple console   
    You only need one sensor for multiple wireless controllers, and it usually is NOT infrared (line of sight), it's RF, so you don't even really need a window. One thing that apple does consistently that I don't see you doing is making the power button something very substantial, and "designed". Also, I feel slot loading is the only accepted new method of media. Tray loaders scream mid 90s, and the flip up top reminds me of the original playstation and gamecube.

    and honestly i think a lotta eggs here are more like bullets shaped~ too pointy to be an egg... i try my best to keep the outline of my eggs round and like a real egg since i persue a best similarity to reality in all my sketches

    cash68 got a reaction from Jason in Advice On Finding A Placement/intern-Ship   
    I would not send your whole portfolio. Send a teaser. Showing too much work at once is overwhelming, and can leave the recruiters/companies a bit critical of some of your weaker work. Think of it like dating. You don't go straight to sex. Tease them a little bit with a resume, cover letter (that is not just a form letter, but one that expresses why you WANT to work there, and what you bring to the table that other people will not), and a small, 8.5" x 11" teaser. The teaser should have your name, contact info, and a small example of some of your work.
     
    Then, the most important bit, wait 2-3 days, and call or SHOW UP. Do not ask whether or not you "made the cut". Ask for feedback. Say you have a lot more to show, and ask if there's anything else you could show them. This will allow you to tailor WHAT you are showing to, what they are interested in. It also develops a dialogue and form of communication. Be open to ANY feedback. I am in my current job because after they rejected me, I asked for just a basic portfolio review with professional designers, not a job. After getting some feedback, I modified my portfolio and showed them what I had a few days later. This was enough to land contract work. That later became a fulltime job.

    Azuro1125: Neat idea... but the solution had a few issues. Can't be molded (severe undercuts), and you can't put your feet under the desk (ignoring human factors. Most people put their feet under the desk quite far. Does not look stackable, so shipping would be expensive.
     
    Streamliner: Solid entry. Only change I'd make is that the 3d renderings do NOT have perspective turned on. Come on man, perspective is what separates us from them (engineers)!
     
    Gigawatt: Not design. At all. And it's on the market already, apparently? Just... no.
     
    Gerivta: Spell check. Grammar. Needs more development in general in terms of human factors, production, shipping, and mechanical systems.
     
    JONGHDESIGN: Nice work, solid sketching/modeling skills, but the concept needs more development. Right away, collected rainwater is not sanitary; go look inside a rain barrel and all the nasty bacteria that grows in it. Hence why it's only used for watering plants. Again, fantastic sketches/modeling/rendering, but the idea needed a bit more revisions.
     
    DanHibbert: What?
     
    SamBan: For every problem there is an overly complicated solution. This is a perfect example. The world doesn't need microchips and electronics in everything; I've seen small clay worms that cost less than $3 that accomplish the exact same thing. You water the plants, the worms turn dark red. When the soil is dry, the clay dries to a chalky white.
     
    SO:
     
    I give my vote to Streamliner. Great sketches, great development, I can see the way you tackled different problems, just totally rock solid all around! JUST REMEMBER TO TURN ON PERSPECTIVE!

    cash68 got a reaction from admin in Why Is The Forum So Slow?   
    That is a good question. I think social networking has resulted in lower forum activity in general; why interact with strangers when you can find people you know on facebook? Secondly, due to the bang up job of transfering over to whatever forum software this is, everyone lost their accounts. No history. Nothing whatsoever was saved. I was a member here for years, and after that, it makes this place really hard to use if I want to reference/find an earlier post. In fact, it kind of ticks me off to the point where I'm not really sure I care if this place sticks around or not. Core77's forums are a lot better than they used to be.
