“Fee, Free or Flee” – Understanding When to Charge image

P.S.A. for all designers or creatives – if you’ve ever been confused about whether or not you should charge a specific client, or if you’ve ever asked yourself “How do I tell them ‘no’ without making things aWkwArd?”, then pay attention because the following can help clarify how to go about your decision making, and ultimately simplifying your life. *thumbs up* The Association of Registered Graphic Designers recently launched a website to help us all in understanding when you should charge, when you shouldn’t, and when you should just peace out. Fee, free, or flee takes you through an interactive questionnaire to better understand when to do what when it comes to different clients, organizations, and employers.

Design Fail – The Washington Post Express image

And so it begins folks…the first design fail of 2017 we’re blogging about. Fresh into the new year and we’re already shaking our heads at The Washington Post Express illustrated cover story on the Women’s March on Washington. The intention was to use the Greek symbol for Venus (a circle and cross) – commonly used to represent women. Instead, the symbol for Mars – or the symbol representing men – was featured. Many are calling this a “symbolic mistake” rather than an accident. Audiences took to Twitter to share their reactions; some suggested the cover indicates systemic bias, while others suggested The Washington Post Express hire more women in their editing department. The publication later apologized for the cover, releasing a new one with the revised ...

Adidas, le soulier 3D du concept à la réalité image

Holiday Party at Kampai Garden image

Between new clients, major projects with existing clients and multiple awards, we’ve had a busy year! In celebration of a very productive and successful 2016, the team at Design Is Yummy ventured out to try something new: Kampai Garden. With the theme of sharing food and experiences, Kampai Garden provided a warm and inviting atmosphere for our team to celebrate. We had a great time trying some new dishes and yummy cocktails, especially the highly anticipated Poké Bowl (or as Gabriela calls it, the Pocke-ball). We’d also like to mention that our signature cocktail was called “The Pikachu” (the Pokemon theme was unintentionally strong folks). The perfect evening to wrap up yet another big year for us. 2017, here we come!
