The Great Escape (from Apple)

After a lot of research I think that the ASUS ZenBook Pro UX501VW 15inch 4K Touchscreen Laptop is everything she needs and costs the same amount as the 13" Macbook Pro she would buy, but I'm worried about Adobe compatibility. [more inside]

What does it take to launch a social media app?

I'm talking about a start-up app that is like Instagram when it first started (in terms of server needs as well as the kind of professionals that are needed to make it happen). Are there any online resources that can help a layman with a budget explore the depths of such an ominous endeavor? [more inside]

Where do I find a freelance graphic designer for a quick turnaround?

Hi all, I have a quick ask for a graphic designer. Need to mock up a landing page - does not need to be final design, and with about 24 hour turnaround. Don't want to spend a ton of money - up to $100. Are there any places I can go to ask / designers willing to help out? I would ask designers at my job, but this landing page is for a personal project and they are extremely busy already.

What anecdote has a staff adding an intentional mistake to fixate boss?

I can't remember this anecdote for the life of me. But the jist was, a very picky director / designer / CEO's people would plant an intentional piece of ugliness (something off center, something ugly) into a project, or design, or film, to fixate him, so he wouldn't tear apart any other parts of the design.

How much does quality cost?

Since moving cross-country several months ago, I've been gradually furnishing a small studio apartment. I decided that, for once, I'm not going to buy Ikea everything, and maybe try paying a little more for higher-quality quality items. Almost every one of my purchases has backfired. How much more should I be prepared to spend before I see reliable improvement in quality over Ikea and other lowest common denominator options? [more inside]

website on the cheap

I work at a local entertainment company that desperately needs a new website. The owner wants to pay next to nothing for a new site in this vein. Is there any possibility a talented student might be willing to design a site like this for a very limited rate and what's the bare minimum we could expect to charge? Also, how could I find such a designer?

Where can I find sweet but affordable dress shirts for a smaller sized guy?

I don't have my measurements on hand at the moment, but I'm 5'9" and 145 pounds. I'm looking for the more casual and trendy dress shirt versus trad. Most are cut too big and blousy, or just not my size, or not my taste (plaid/paisley = ick). I went to my local mens' store and found Stone Rose shirts and was impressed by the detail and quality, but alas, no smalls. I could order online, but $100 to $150 per shirt is out of my league for now, plus the extra costs as these are supposed to be dry cleaned only. Trolling the racks of TJ Maxx and Goodwill isn't bringing much luck, much less Sears, Macy's and JC Penney in my immediate area. Where can I find some alternatives? Please no Ed Hardy.

I would like to buy a collection of display fonts, i.e. fonts that designed more for being used in the headline of ads or editorial layouts i.e. they stand out and don't look like the more typical serifs and sans serifs. I'm not looking for a particular style (brush, grunge etc) but rather a collection that has examples from numerous styles. Open Type is preferred, but not necessary. Suggestions? Yes, I know about dafont.com and the like. I'd prefer to buy a collection, thanks.

Getting a Business Card Designed

My blog is starting to do well and I'd like to get to get some business cards to hand out at a trade show in a few months. I've looked into the do-it-yourself approach but I haven't been happy with the templates I've found or the designs I've made myself. Even though I don't really want to spend a lot of money, I'm thinking it might be worthwhile to invest in a professionally designed card. So, can anyone recommend a business card designer and give me some idea of what it might cost? I also want someone who can print the cards and do it right. [more inside]
