    Yusef Ben Masaud: Islam is an inherently violent, racist and misoginyst ideology. Comparing THAT to anything racist is nonsensical, as is your usage of the label "extremist." In a faith founded by a 53-year old man married to a 6-year old girl- a man who believed that he rode a magical super mule with wings and the face of a woman, there isnt going to be anything that can be called "extreme." I mean, look at al Qur'an itself: Sura 4, Ayah 34 commands men to beat their disagreeable wives! But you want folks to imagine that Islam has extremes? Really??? Lastly, the author was not making a point about maternal love when showing proud mothers with sons about to commit "Suicide Attacks." The point was, that in a society where mothers are proud of their sons committing murderous acts of terrorism there simply isnt much that would be salvageable- or, to put it in your terms- such societies do not really have extremes.

    So design is applied art? Or maybe an Eames chair is a design object when you're trying to sell it or sit in it, and an art object when you're observing it, etc.

  • Don commented on the article "“Do you want fries with that logo?”"

    This is a great article; that said all designs are copyrighted at the time of creation by default by the producer; they don't work like patents where one must specifically apply. This is a reason many studios won't read spec-scripts for existing shows: If they read it, and then they want to produce a similar work, they are in sketchy legal territory. So, if a client just says "I'll take this and just use this later," then they are in for a world of legal hurt. So many people do not understand this; I had a client that believed that all the work I had done for them was "work for hire" despite no such agreement existing. They aren't dumb, but they are definitely ignorant about this issue. Remember, everyone: unless specifically stated otherwise in a contract, you own EVERYTHING. As such, it can mean a lot for your appearance of professionalism to specifically state in writing exactly what the client gets, and what usage rights they possess, and for how long. It can be tempting to ignore this step, especially if you are working with someone you know well or someone that you've worked with a long time. Your terms should include what, where, and how the work is to be used, transferability of the agreement, and also the creation of derivative works. Let's say you design a character for use in an ad; the character is so darn cute that they decide to make a best-selling toy based on the likeness. Without an agreement, you might lose thousands or millions of dollars over such a small omission.

    I have to say, 1.5% is ridiculously small for most freelance jobs. As a small shop, getting an extra $250 in 4 months is nothing compared to $1500 today. The 1.5% is low enough that a client might ignore it, and also not enough to cover all of the hoop jumping you'll need to do for four months while trying to exist in a receivables-rich, cash-poor environment. I personally go to 5 percent of the original total, tacked on monthly.

  • Csing commented on the article "Diversity & Inclusion in Design: Why Do They Matter?"

    I believe that there has always been strength in diversity because the most creative ideas do come from the most unexpected places. Yet there is still an underlying stigma against hiring minorities. As a minority, I as well as a few other minorities have struggled for many years persuing a career in design with very little success and stability. There is so much culture and creativity and so many skills minorities has to offer but who has time to sit and wait for the design community to catch up change its world views on this. In the meantime we still need opportunities. What can we do now.

    I really did work for Dorfsman, and he didn't even remember me even when I was THERE.

  • steph commented on the article "The 5 Best Cities for Graphic Designers"

    I'm a designer in Denver. I disagree with Amanda that rent is one of the highest in the US — it is high but nowhere like California or some places on the east coast. The competition is pretty severe for designers here, however. Also, 5 years as a designer isn't very experienced, that salary sounds about right for that much, honestly.

    Trademark registration includes the registration and protection of a logo, design or the combination of both with a word, brand name. for example in argentina you can register a trademark online, including graphics in jpg format.

    Thank you for an excellent, informative article. I had not looked at my 20 issues of Nest for at least 10 years. I had forgotten what a treasure they are. The information you have provided is wonderful. Thanks again.

    My daughter is a high school student and has taken a couple of graphic design classes. She seems to be very good at this type of work and comes up with artwork that her instructors tell me I should look into protecting. My daughter is looking at a career in this field and its great that she has a gift for it. How do we protect her designs?

  • John commented on the article "Video: Command X: Season 3, Day 2"

    I think the contestants do a great job of thinking on their feet and answering difficult "questions" from the judges, who seem to be more interested in getting cheap laughs from the audience and inflating their own egos than giving honest and constructive feedback. Ellen in particular seems to be in a foul mood.
