In order, I hate and despise flying, crowded subways, going to the dentist, and flying. Did I mention flying? So I extra appreciate the work by Base Design, below, using solid graphic design principals to help de-stress the pre-flight experience at JFK Airport's insanely busy Terminal 4. It's a noble and notable effort, lacking only an onsite pharmacy to dispense sleeping pills or anti-anxieties for the actual flight.

Is Your Digital Footprint Hurting Your Chances of Getting Hired?

What you say and do outside of work impacts your career pursuits. Yet some people still fail to realize how much their digital footprint matters. Here are some surprising things employers surveyed by The Creative Group have found when searching online for information about creative job candidates:

“A potential hire arguing on social media.”

“One candidate shared very negative comments regarding previous employers.”

“Too much personal information. I have seen an online resume that had the person’s date of birth, marital status and other things that were irrelevant and should not be disclosed.”

“Embarrassing party photos.”

“Unprofessional email addresses or screen names.”

Your digital footprint can influence whether or not you land a job. And even if you’re highly qualified, you may be deemed too risky to even bring in for an interview if your online image doesn’t align with your professional one. The upside is that you do have the power to make sure you’re portraying the skills and qualities that employers seek. Here are some tips on how to sell a version of yourself that will appeal to hiring managers and future colleagues.

Transitioning from Flash to HTML5
Transitioning from Flash to HTML5: Separating Fact From Fiction
In case you haven’t heard, Flash is dead. Done. No longer relevant. Google isn’t accepting new Flash ads any more and will stop displaying Flash ads entirely in early 2017. And, of course, Flash was never widely supported on mobile to begin with.
As Flash fades to the background, HTML5 has taken its place as the industry standard for digital ads, according to the Interactive Advertising Bureau. That said, there is a lot of confusion about what this actually means. How does switching from Flash to HTML5 impact the way you market your product? Do you have more options now, or fewer? Does this mean a more time-consuming and less efficient workflow?…
