The subject of “logo options” came up for me recently in the form of the question: “how many logo options should I show my client?” My answer was that I put my very best effort into one logo design. If a client doesn’t like it, they can pay me for another logo design option or find another designer to work with. I refuse to waste my or my client’s time by providing my best idea, and then two to three more really shitty ideas just to fulfill some quota of “options.” Besides, the client will ALWAYS choose the shittiest option you show them, so I just don’t do it.

Having passed away four years ago today, I thought it appropriate to re-share his most inspirational piece of work of his entire career.
With just a little bit of searching about this movie, I saw quite a few sites pointing to the full length HD movie online. I haven’t watched it because it requires a (free) registration to a site which, let’s be honest, is not a legal movie site. The only reason I even share it is that I came across it searching for the trailer on YouTube and they have the link right there.
One of the many versions of the movie poster is below.
The movie itself looks good, but Michael Fassbender just doesn’t fit. I don’t care how good he is as an actor, he doesn’t look anything like Steve Jobs. And that would be ok were it not for the fact that Jobs only passed away a few years ago. He’s too fresh in our mind.
I’m not sure I can get past the fact that he looks nothing like Steve Jobs.
“I don’t think we need you in this meeting, Lorrie. Thanks,” he said.
If only more companies took this approach to meetings…
“For $13,000 — $5,200 up front, and $7,800 on delivery, and no additional royalties — Shepardson Microsystems would build Apple’s first DOS. For its money, Apple would get a file manager, an interface for integer BASIC and Applesoft BASIC, and utilities that would allow disk backup, disk recovery, and file copying.”
It’s always fun to look back on computing history.
