• GoPro Goes Big by Going Smaller, Lighter & More Pro

    / Comments (1)

    Can't wait to get our hands on a few of these.

    The Wi-Fi enabled HERO3: Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro, ever. No expense was spared during its development, resulting in a GoPro that is 30% smaller, 25% lighter & 2X more powerful than previous models. New resolutions and frame-rates include 4Kp 15, 2.7kp 30, 1080p 60, 1440p 48, 960p 100, 720p 120 and 12MP burst photo capture at 30 fps. Yes, for real.

  • A New Call to Artists: @Trailnet Comes Correct

    / Comments (1)

    As we reported on Tuesday, Trailnet was promoting a call for creatives that simply was a raw deal to any of the artists who would've unwittingly signed up for such a show. We made the facts & figures of our discontent known and (much more importantly) the community did as well thru the comments on the article and on twitter.

    You can imagine our delight yesterday afternoon as we waded thru another dreary work day - followed by the beginning of the longest rain delay know to man - to receive a golden nugget in our email box alerting us that Trailnet had changed their tune (though as of right now, the former Call is still up on the site):

    We're delighted with this for a few reasons; first, that this site has helped foster a change in how an organization views creatives and our work. And secondly, that it's helped continue to educate similar organizations and the community at large that it's not okay to treat creatives like hungry college seniors willing to whore themselves out for a shitty deal. (We're looking at you, agencies offering unpaid internships)

    Any reform of a bad practice spells victory in our eyes and makes the daily stresses of running the Egotist all the more worth it. The real credit goes to the individual that made us aware of the issue initially and everyone who stood up and voiced their displeasure.

    As you know, we're down to champion creative's rights in any situation. If you see a shitty deal, cleverly disguised competition or any other evidences of crowd-sourcing going on in St. Louis, let us know.

  • Soybeans Made Sexy by @90DegreesWest for @Osborn_Barr

    / Comments (0)

    We're curious as to what the actual final videos look like, but you can't deny the appeal of these 2D, lightly-textured, chipotle-inspired graphics for the United Soy Bean Board… whatever the hell that is.


    They just posted a finished piece and it is decidedly less sexier when you substitute banjo shufflin' for techno music. We also hope this isn't related to Monsanto in some way; that would kinda kill the whole vibe going on here.

  • Now Hiring Locally: Creative Developer - @HLKAgency

    / Comments (0)

    As a creative front end developer, your primary focus will be building and implementing high-quality user interfaces. While a high quality user experience and pixel precision remain top priorities, you will also be responsible for contributing to projects on a creative level and working closely with a team of art directors to create quality digital products. We emphasize not only the ability to accurately replicate a pre-determined design from a photoshop comp, but also the ability to enhance those designs with creative interactions and improvements.

  • Five Things You Should Never Say to a Client

    We try to steer clear of posting anything that begins with "# Things…", but this one is fairly good advice to anyone dealing with clients on the regular. Although, now that we think about it, we can think of a whole lotta things that you should probably never say to a client.
