How much does a logo design cost?

“How much does a logo design cost?” It’s one of the most frequent questions I receive. But trying to answer this question without specific details is a near impossible task. How long is a piece of string? So the next question I usually hear is, “What’s the ballpark cost for designing a logo?”. This depends, as every project is unique. The cost of a logo is going to be different depending on the requirements, the size of the business, if its a rebranding, the amount of research & strategy that’s ...

Rethinking Plagiarism (Or At Least How We Think About It)

“I recognize that when students plagiarize they often do so not because they have some nefarious agenda but because they feel enormous pressure to succeed or are confused, uncertain, forgetful, exhausted, or pressed for time. But I am optimistic that at least some students walked away from the class feeling empowered as scholars and thinkers, that they began to see citation as a means of bringing different voices to bear on critical conversations from which they’ve been consciously or unconsciou...

William Goldman Wrote “The Best Book Ever” About The Theatre

Its primary accomplishment is its bluntness, reflected in the subtitle A Candid Look at Broadway. No writer has better captured the way theater insiders actually talk about their craft. Goldman listens in on artists discussing how to fix shows out of town, to curmudgeonly patrons and critics on the aisle, and to producers working out how to make money—even on flops. Goldman never wrote another book about the theater, and he wrote this one with the unmistakable swagger and detail of someone who c...

Ochis Coffee Sunglasses: Turning a hot beverage into hot eyewear!

A little less than two and a half million cups of coffee are consumed every day. Just by that statistic, we generate 34 million kilograms of coffee grounds every day as waste. Now, coffee grounds can be used as fertilizer or as compost, so that isn’t really a problem, but what if there’s more we can do with our coffee grounds?These grounds obviously can’t be reused or re-brewed, and are therefore essentially a massive repository of low-cost raw material, waiting to be used and converted into p...

Why Diversity Matters

Roughly speaking, the most common defense of diversity has two parts. The first focuses on the educational and social benefits of diversity. The second attempts to show the inherent value of a diverse environment, one that is in some sense representative of the diversity of the American, or perhaps global, population.

Embracing Vulnerability: The Secret Weapon Every Presenter Must Learn

Dr. Brene Brown, a renowned social psychologist and author of Daring Greatly, a New York Times #1 best seller, defines vulnerability as “uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure.” She elaborates by noting that “vulnerability is the core of all emotions and feelings.” We know that when it comes to presentations, emotions and feelings are a driving force of information retention and engagement. According to Dr. Brown’s findings coupled with our knowledge of presenting, if you can open yourself up...

Factory Visit: Italian Faucet-Maker Fantini

Fantini has been making faucets, showers and accessories …

Is Shame A Sign Of A Failure Of Moral Standards?

Most philosophers agree that shame is about failing to live up to our moral ideals, but stories such as Lucy Grealy’s and others’ seem not to fit this definition. For example, it’s common for people who suffer from mental illness to feel shame. People who experience povertyfeel shame because of it. It’s also common for women to feel shame more often than men, and for black people to feel shame more often than white people. To argue that all these people must feel shame because, deep down, they f...

How South Dakota Shows What Orchestras Are For

Arnold Schoenberg survived Nazi Germany, Vienna and Hollywood. But Boston?

Opera thrives on iconic figures, whether from mythology or history. But maybe composer Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1951) hasn’t been gone long enough – or was never outwardly heroic enough – to fill Tod Machover’s new opera Schoenberg in Hollywood.

South Africa’s Southern Guild at NYC’s The Salon Art + Design

Cape Town‘s Southern Guild was the only African design representative at NYC’s high-end showcase, The Salon Art + Design in mid-November. And, as Lynsey Chutel points out for Quartz, the gallery presented furniture that “punctured the outdated image the west has of an African aesthetic.” Southern Guild makes clear that it’s important African design maintains attention—and a competitive edge—on a fickle global design stage. Further, the …

The Open Office Promised To Boost Creativity. Instead…

The borderless fluidity of open offices seems perfectly suited to the ambitions of the internet  age—while  also replicating its failed aspirations toward “connectivity.” Just as hyper-modulated online interactions, contrary to the promise of their conceptual foundations, cordon people into niche micro experiences, so the open office counterintuitively isolates office workers. A recent study from Harvard Business School confirms this deterioration of face-to-face interaction.
