How To Be A Really Good Client

Just thought I’d share this for future ref­er­ence, as well as cur­rent of course.

This was pub­lished a while back by Num­ber 17, a cre­ative stu­dio led by Bon­nie Siegler and Emi­ly Ober­man. Pret­ty much some basic rules to have a smooth project with con­tract­ed Design­ers.

Bill O’Reilly Meltdown

I was chat­ting with Mik ear­li­er about set­ting up a paint­ball out­ing at the Jun­gle some­time in the next cou­ple of weeks when the whole “F**K IT, we’ll do it live” men­tion came about. Here’s the clas­sic piece that aired a cou­ple of months ago:

Nixon Modical Rotolog Watch

Cool, unique watch that I saw while brows­ing.

Get pre­ci­sion tim­ing in Nixon’s Mod­i­cal Rotolog Watch with lat­est style sport­ing a funky pat­terned enam­el coat­ing. Whether your steeze is hip-hop or punk the Mod­i­cal’s cus­tom 30 meter stain­less steel with hard­ened min­er­al crys­tal case­back and stain­less steel straps show Nixon’s top of the line crafts­man­ship with diverse design. The Japan­ese Quartz time move­ment with led is eas­i­ly read from a roll dial on the right side of the cas­ing so you won’t be late for your skate ses­sion or cof­fee shop hang­out or what­ev­er. Use this watch in the dark with its back­ing light cause even though we’re oh so total­ly dif­fer­ent nobody has night vision, right?

MSRP is $449.95. But I saw it for about 50%-off at a deal site (now gone).
