    It's sort of the Dadaist approach to design, I guess.

    You're engaging in linear thinking and being too literal about it. If you've settled on working with the idea of "pride," keep in mind that it's an emotional state and not a physical thing....

    The style reminds of cut and paste punk posters of the 1970s. I think the thing about those posters is they were kind of anti-design.

    I think rabbits are going to be the next cats. You should do a series of videos about rabbits that are freelance graphic designers and the business issues they face.

    I had that happen to me once in my life. I wasn't even dreaming. I couldn't replicate the situation again though. Maybe it was my unicorn.

  • Dedicated Web Server


    Hey guys,
    I'm thinking of purchasing a dedicated web server with 1 terabyte of bandwidth and a ton of space and making a video hosting site.


    If i were to do this,
    What would be a good price to charge people to host their video's, etc. ??
    and
    What would be some other good ideas to make money with the site ??

    The reason i'm asking is because if I were to buy a dedicated server, It would have to pay for itself every month.

    So all ideas are welcome.
    Give me some ideas on what you guys would like a site for and are willing to pay for the services.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who posts.

    You might want to pre-sell your offerings to see what kind of market you have before signing a contract on dedicated hosting of any sort. Also you might also want to find out if you can setup some kind of software to throttle the max amountof bandwidth each user can use, if you don't somebody will come a long with a huge pipe and grind your service to a halt. Is that a terabyte per month? That equals out to be a constant 3mbit stream (2 T1's) and 20 or 30 hi-speed users would max that out.

    Personally I have no need for video hosting, but some others might tell you, but you might want to make it a per byte thing rather than a flat fee, in case a video gets linked a lot of places and sucks your bandwidth away.

    We had several 'free' download graphics sites which we ended up turning into subscription sites to help offset the badwidth costs and it worked out rather nicely.
