I've been pretty shocked to learn that most design interviews now are accompanied by a brief for the designer to create a visual from, here's what happened when I tweeted about it…
Since when did design agencies start asking for designers to complete a brief as part of the interview process?

They have no money and exist, for a short time, by standing on the shoulders of others genius for Free.
United we Stand.
If it were me I'd ask them to sign an NDA first.

I've been digging around for some motivational type quotes from weird sources, here's what I found - if you can think of any more let me know!
The internet is flooded with motivational and inspirational quotes from some of histories greatest individuals. But what about those that aren't considered quite so wise? Just for fun I put these typographic (semi) motivational quotes together from some of the more unlikely sources.
