    I got to 22 on the first game. Some of those lighter squares really were difficult to spot.

    I think the fact that designia turned down two other quotes from them probably means they won't bend for a new client that they assume won't do a ton of business with them.

    PrintDriver, you can definitely get general pricing I do it all the time... You simply ask what panel sizes they stock, or ask to price standard sizes that most large format shops can do. And I'm not...

    I wouldn't say that this is horrible by any means, but I don't think that the design lends to the name.

    When I think of "creative liftoff" I think of motion, fluidity, ideas and...

Art directors spend their days on paperwork, managing cat fights, sleeping through meetings, hanging out on Internet forums, spreading vile rumors, snooping in subordinant's drawers while they're at lunch, taking credit for other people's work and figuring out sadistic ways to intimidate and belittle underlings. Evenings and weekends are the only times art directors get to do any art.

    I think we might be limiting ourselves, here. Who says there has to be one collective noun for zombies? They're such a varied creature.

    If you wanted to follow an event timeline, you might start with A Disbelief of Zombies or A Shock of Zombies. As things progressed you would shift into A Mob of Zombies, A Hunger of Zombies or A Swell of Zombies. Towards the end, as things 'died' down or fell off, you could be looking at (depending on the means of ultimate demise) A Mess of Zombies, A Splatter of Zombies or An Extinction of Zombies.

    You could look at it as a variety of things rather than one, like a flock of seagulls or a murder of crows - both of which are still birds. So you could have A Shuffle of Zombies, A Sprint of Zombies, A Creep of Zombies or A Stink of Zombies.

    You could even go by genres, as we've probably all seen different types of zombies in different movies and tales. If you can only see the zombies in black and white, you've got A Romero of Zombies (only because A They're Coming To Get You Barbara of Zombies is too long). If they were brought about by infected blood, you're running from A Rage of Zombies. Resident Evil fan? That's A Contamination of Zombies. Peter Jackson fans will be watching Dead Alive and seeing A Pruning of Zombies. If you're into Shaun of the Dead, you start with a Giggle of Zombies and progress to a Guffaw of Zombies. If you're listening to Thriller, you've probably got a Choreography of Zombies on your hands.

So the client asks if we can make the 30 seconds into 15 seconds... me - We can do this, but which parts would you like to cut out? cleint - Dont cut anything out. Just make it 15 seconds.

        lol!! I didn't see that one from Broacher the first time around. It's so true!!

        Happy Halloween Friday everyone! I'm swamped, but had to get my weekly QOTW fix. I now have to go back to the 'infinite-tweaks-on-copy-and-imagery-so-we-can-make-our-opponent-look-bad-so-we-get-our-candidates-elected-but-don't-get-sued-in-the-process' HELL of the political season.

            I did not appreciate that kick in the balls comment lol.

            Happy Friday ya'll! Going to the bar after work, one of the translation ladies is leaving and she has nice boobs so I thought I would go.

            Curious, how long does a quote have to be around before it's a classic lol?

              Yay Friday quotes!

              It's kinda sad that my most professional-sounding posts in this forum are discussing zombies, not design. Oh well.

                great quotes...sorry about missing that in the before...so much happening now I miss some little details of thanks.


                week went by OK until last night. (two bits of horrible news via FB-terribly shocking)

                that aside, this week is supposed to be Longwood Gardens for their mum festival on Saturday. Sunday is church and a neighbor's 4th birthday party (she's Luke's, sometime, wife). somewhere in there finding time to create my costume. (boat) and possibly sudden change of plans based on the bad news from earlier. (tonight going over friend's house to talk about the two events.)

                stress stress stress....but Monday is Halloween, and cosutmes, and possibly leaving early.

                              OMG Friday....I've been waiting for you all week!

                              Thanks for the Quotes and Intro, Kool. You do amazing work! lol

                              soooo tired today! We were at the Foo Fighters concert last night, and it was a late one. This day can't go by fast enough! As for weekend plans...tonight I have coffee with a friend. Tomorrow, we're heading over to another friends place to hang out and watch some movies. Sunday is the last day of paintball for the season (well, outdoor at least, and indoor kinda sucks). It's gonna be chilly, but it's always worth it!

                              Have a great weekend everyone!!
