99 Design Brief

Hey designers, here's the photos of me I was talking about in the brief. Also here is the banner of Colmar Brunton and it's associated colours.

i am finding that it is easier to get responses from senior people or people you see infrequently by using linkedIn vs traditional email (i think it is a facinating fact that we can now refer to email as traditional). why is this so?

Maybe its the spam filter updates!

Could it be that LinkedIn is relatively new for many or are people concerned about getting a poor reputation on LinkedIn or maybe worse, a recommendation rejection? I think many people including me are struggling to keep up with the daily email deluge, holding emails in drafts for later when you have time to think. i deal with 150+ emails a day and probably only 2-3 issues to deal with in linked in.

I am becoming a big fan of linked in, although starting to find the LinkedIn groups contact too frequent. What do you think ?

Check out my April article in Research News, the brilliant monthly magazine of the AMSRS. The article is entitled "The C word that is here to stay"

C of course is for collaboration. I think that when times are tough, collaboration becomes more important than ever. Do you agree?
