Apple Watch timed for March Madness ?

iWatch, uWatch, we allWatch the smartWatch:
Apple Spring Event slotted for March 9

apple-watch-spring-eventOn March 9 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, Apple is expected to officially announce the Apple Watch (iWatch seems so much cooler). Wearables will never be the same, and possibly wearables stocks, too.

Costs start at $349 and with the boom of the iPhone 6 Plus..big boom, these smart watches are expected to sell well as iPhone 6 owners hands are getting tired. At least mine are, and not having worn a watch since I got my first iPhone 3, it will be an interesting change and more intriguing to “watch” for consumer buy in.

I am excited to see if this device can be used with one hand…because…having to use two hands to read a watch ain’t so smart after all. An so, instead of constantly looking down at our phones, we’ll now be raising our hands up in front of our faces – as if that’s somewhat less distracting.

Here’s wishing for an additional announcement of a new Apple TV model, or a 12″ iPad Pro to ease those concerns out of the gate.

Time will tell!

political signs

‘Tis the Season for Yard SIgns

This is one of the best political yard signs I’ve ever seen. 1. I can read it from far away, so it does the candidate justice (pun intended). 2. The designer took some liberty to make it unique by making it diamond shaped. 3. That is the funniest political candidate “name” ever!

Too many signs I see are so over designed. Non-traditional colors, fonts that have no business on a sign and design elements that just aren’t needed. Often sign design can over thinking the message…keeping it simple helps the reader remember what they saw, especially if they’re just driving by.

Designers, do yourself and your client, friend, candidate or whoever hired you, a favor. ‘Name’ real big and office they’re running for…that’s it! Make it readable from 50 feet and make it obvious it’s an election sign, so even if a remote possibility that a remodeling company decided to put their sign in with the others, your sign does its job.
