Tips For Landing That Design/Development Job
I run a digital creative agency called Ideaware, as part of my job I receive and filter resumes looking for talent to join our team.

Brad Frost nails it: The fact that this article was posted on an influential design blog is disappointing. This kind of shallow thinking is what leads organizations to embrace short-term solutions instead of addressing the legitimately hard problems we’re facing. I also completely disagreed with the quoted post from sixrevisions.

Some Thoughts On Windows 8
Just came back from a store where they had some new Windows 8 Dell’s. So as curious as I am I took one to give it a whirl. It was a horrible experience to say the least. Main issue is that this interface works great on a mobile/touch device, but translates to a very frustrating experience on a desktop/laptop. The user experience itself isn’t thought through, for instance I tried...
