How to nail the question, “What did you learn in your last job?”

Don’t resort to fluff. If you answer intelligently and confidently, you can impress the hiring manager in just a few sentences.

Interview enough people and it all becomes one big blur. But the interviews you remember years–or even decades–after the fact are memorable for carrying important lessons. I remember interviewing an applicant for a receptionist and recruiting assistant position. Candidates came in with years of experience. I read countless polished résumés. But the applicant...

Follow this 2-part plan before you go on parental leave

Having a substantive plan in place can help you truly disconnect during your parental leave. Here’s how to make that transition easier.

What stressed me out the most when I had my first child late last year wasn’t making sure I had a nursery set up or what I could (and couldn’t) eat and drink during pregnancy. By far, the thing that kept me up at night was the fear that I wouldn’t plan well enough for the time I was out of the office and end up leaving my team in the lurch.

The Orbit fan, however, offers an entirely new solution to air circulation that’s a whole lot easier on the eyes.

The clever creation takes on the form of a gyroscope. It’s at once artistic and functional, with moveable sections that are enchanting to watch. Better yet, it differs from traditional...

Minimalism to the Max

No.2 Minim cards are an exploration into the extremes of minimalism. Designer Joe Doucet has reduced the playing card set to the bare essentials so all that remains is absolutely, positively necessary for playing!

Nbit rebranding / www


Nbit is a company that provides solutions for data security. We designed the entire brand identity. The goal of the project was to create a universal visual language and refresh the brand image. The result is a modular key visual, based on the bit symbol appearing in the logotype, which is a graphical representation of the data stream. The modularity of key visuals allows its adaptation within all advertising media and in the website design.
