Working with Other Freelancers: The Power of Outsourcing

The power comes from working with others, while still maintaining a one-man or one-woman operation. Working with other freelancers by outsourcing, or otherwise known as subcontracting can be a powerful source of business growth for any freelancer. In this post we’re going to discuss some of the benefits of working with others in the field, how to find others to work with, and how to successfully manage a freelancing business that may be actually run by multiple individuals.
The Benefits of Working With Others

All freelancers enjoy working on their own for one reason or another. For some, it’s to set their own hours. For others, it’s to work on the kind of things they want to work on. Then, for the introverts, a solo environment may just be more appealing. Whatever your reason, as freelancers we all take on the same challenges. Working with others in the field can combat these challenges – both the emotional and business related problems.
Combat Loneliness & Isolation…>>>


By: Kayla Knight

One person can only do so much, and therefore a business consisting of one person can only grow so much. Yet, many of us in this industry love to work alone; we love to call all of the shots and give ourselves full creative freedom. So how can a freelance business have the best of both worlds?

“La vida en un día”


Esta claro que el contexto de los Social Media aporta varias características nuevas al relato audiovisual:

  • Mayor fragmentación, si cabe, parecía imposible después del nacimiento del videoclip;)
  • La vida online en Real Time lo permite, más allá del pseudo-real time Gran Hermano.
  • Nuevo Protagonistas, sin presentador y sin “cobayas encerradas” en este entorno el único y absoluto protagonista es el usuario,nosotros. Más allá del clásico testimonial guiado por presentador.

Ya lo hemos visto con la iniciativa lanzada por Facebook, su meta-relato compuestos por las Facebook Stories a lo largo y ancho de la historia generada por sus más de 500 actuales habitantes, y ahora, con“La vida en un día”, la tendencia queda en evidencia;) Leer más ““La vida en un día””

8 Reasons Why We are So Obsessed with Celebrity


by jeremywaite

A few years ago, Piers Morgan suggested that celebrity-driven journalism was no longer the way to sell newspapers. Three years ago, a survey found that 60 per cent of adults were bored with celebrity and yet Neilson TV ratings and book sales suggest otherwise.  Why is it that we are so fascinated with celebrities?

Paul Dano: Let Your Experiences Surprise You


by Sarah Rapp

As far as being “Hollywood” goes, actor Paul Dano doesn’t indulge the stereotype for a second. Relaxed, generally unconcerned, and a self-proclaimed homebody, he’s able to maintain a healthy diet of three or four films a year, and find ample time to hang out in his Brooklyn neighborhood. How? He just doesn’t worry too much about it all. Dano pays attention to the senses, knowing to say yes when he feels “lit up,” and from there, giving himself the freedom to ride out the experience.As a creative, Dano is of the “ebb and flow” philosophy, allowing himself to obsess over work and let sanity fly out the window during filming, only to return home to sleep in, catch a pickup game with friends, and consider his next move.

Following his intuition has served him well. Aside from his stunning turn in P.T. Anderson’s There Will Be Blood, Dano recently voiced the lovable goat in Where the Wild Things Are, and played opposite Zoey Deschanel in the art-house film Gigantic. This summer, he’ll appear as the dapper – not to mention lingerie-wearing – lead in The Extra Man, based on the book by Jonathan Ames. Leer más “Paul Dano: Let Your Experiences Surprise You”

Moving Beyond Open Innovation

Opening up R&D organizations to outside ideas has become a powerful weapon in the strategic arsenal of research managers. As Henry Chesbrough writes, “[O]pen innovation is a paradigm that assumes that firms can and should use external ideas as well as internal ideas, and internal and external paths to market, as the firms look to advance their technology.” This strategy has been associated with notable commercial successes, such as Procter & Gamble’s SpinBrush, sourced not from internal R&D but rather a group of inventors in Cleveland. Increasingly, we see a coterie of firms from IBM to GlaxoSmithKline orienting their research strategy around open approaches.

But even textbook applications of open innovation still reflect a traditional emphasis in large organizations on large bets and big breakthroughs. In the end, what open innovation accomplishes is a shift of source for some big breakthroughs, from inside the company’s R&D organization to the outside.

A Freelancer’s Eternal Dilemma: Full Time or Part Time?

A freelancer’s most difficult decision would come at a point when it’s time to choose between going full-time or continuing part-time. The issue is not whether to make the change or not, but rather if you are ready to make this big jump or not.

Going all the way and plunging into the business of being an entrepreneur is not a small decision. It is a great prospect to be your own boss, do your own projects and make a good living from the comfort of your own home.

Many have made the mistake of jumping into the deep end too soon and too unprepared; a mistake that can drain you of your passion and put you into great financial, mental and emotional turmoil.

Before making any major decisions, consider carefully if you are ready to go into the business full time. Leer más “A Freelancer’s Eternal Dilemma: Full Time or Part Time?”

Useful (Offline) Utensils and Toolkits for Designers


By Cameron Chapman

Most web designers start new projects on their computer. There are hundreds of tools out there for creating wireframes, mockups, prototypes, and doing various other planning activities on your computer or online. But there are also tons of offline, paper-based tools that can speed up your development and design process. Designers who start their planning offline often just use blank or graph paper and start from scratch.

La creatividad no sólo está en la pieza, sino en el uso del medio


A veces dudamos de la capacidad publicitaria de internet. A veces la creatividad no sólo está en la pieza, sino en el uso del medio, por eso no debemos malograrlo dejándolo en manos de planificadores de medios. La inserción es un trabajo creativo, vean si no este ejemplo del uso de Vimeo (un You Tube pata negra) como parte de la publicidad.

¿La cultura de las agencias de medios puede permitir hacer este tipo de cosas?, ¿saben (pueden) las agencias de comunicación publicitaria dar el paso y entrar en el medio? Leer más “La creatividad no sólo está en la pieza, sino en el uso del medio”

Does your business have a good reason? No? Why not?

It doesn’t matter if it’s an employee or a vendor, everyone should have a solid reason for the things they do. Otherwise, quite frankly, what they’re doing is just a hobby. Why should be asked all the time. And clear and quick answers should always be given.

I’ve seen it happen a lot specifically amongst creatives. It seems that their minds tend to race faster than they can control the purpose of what they’re doing. It’s actually a great part of the creative process. You just need to make sure you take it to the next level before stopping. Internally we’re asking why all the time. Until we have an acceptable answer, we’re not done. [Más…] To me this is a true to test to see if someone is competent in what they do. Sure, you can wow me with great design, but telling me why it was done that way is what’s truly impressive. Launch a new website that has all the bells and whistles, but be clear on why I should use your product. Tell me I need a new message, but explain to me why the old one isn’t working. You tell me over and over that you’re the best, but I need to see why I should believe that.

Housing shortage crisis

Management Line

The big talking point at barbecues, dinner parties and gatherings seems to be property prices. It’s something I have talked about before here and it’s getting worse.

One of the big drivers is the housing shortage which has become a national crisis. As reported here, the National Housing Supply Council has found that the gap between supply and demand for housing has doubled in 12 months and it’s expected to widen. The housing supply-demand gap increased to 178,400 homes in the 12 months to June 2009 – up from 99,500 for the previous 12 months.

No guts, no glory

In addition to consulting on scripts and production, Dye supervised the 10-day boot camp which gave the actors a compressed version of the 13-week Marine Corps basic training. “I put them through an extraordinary amount of pain and agony,” Dye says, proudly. “There are two ways to go about this – you can work from the outside in, and in about three days I will teach you how to handle a weapon and wear your uniform right. That’s fine but it will be very superficial.

“I work from the inside out … I want to reach inside your chest, I want to pull that throbbing heart out and show it to you. “I want you to understand it in your guts and in your mind, and if I can get there, I have a magical performance, because you can’t lie at that point, you’re automatically telling the truth.”

A retired US Marine captain tells Michael Idato how he shaped actors into soldiers.

Night after sweaty night in remote rainforest, the small group struggled through exhausting patrols carrying heavy packs, with the relentless tension of an unseen enemy. Each morning the men woke to the rattle of machine-gun fire.

No it’s not war as re-created in the blockbuster new miniseries The Pacific, just the 10-day actor boot camp that preceded it.

In 2007, Australian, American and Japanese actors who had won roles in the sequel to the 2001 series Band of Brothers, were shipped off to trenches on opposite sides of a makeshift battlefield under the watchful eye of the man considered the toughest in the game. Leer más “No guts, no glory”

30 Mar A Showcase of Watercolor in Web Design


<!–Categories: –>

Watercolor is such an old school element. Artists have been using watercolor for hundreds of years, and web designers have adopted the style for good reason.

Watercolor is a great way to add depth, interesting subtle textures and colors. It can really give your site an authentic, natural feel.

The examples compiled in this collection use watercolor in different ways; whether it’s for the main graphic of the site or the more subtle and faint hints that get you to look twice.

Watercolor has been around for a century and I know most of you will say it’s a trend, but you can’t argue with something that has pioneered painting and art.
