Facebook Timeline

The official deadline was March 30, but hey, because sooner is better, we decided to take our Facebook Timeline online today. While it’s not 100% complete, we managed to compile most of our important milestones and uploaded them for our own historical records. So here it is, Neuro-Designs’ official Facebook Timeline.

Have you worked on your own Timeline?

That’s why we ask our clients to trust our judgment on design decisions :)

This has been bugging our minds for a few months now, but we just haven’t got the time to deal with it. Starting from today, we decided to remove our fax number from the Contact page. Yes, you can see it for yourself that it no longer exists. From this point onward, we encourage our clients to use emails instead of sending us faxes. And every time we are asked to fax something, we will prioritize on asking if we can email them instead.

Some people may ask why, and some people would argue that being a business, a fax number is definitely a necessity. Somewhat true, but we have our reasons:

Reason One: It Consumes Paper
Little that we notice, but we think we generated enough paper trash because of this. We often get failed fax transmissions, misprinted a transmission into two copies, and the most annoying thing is when the sender thinks that the fax is rejected. They will keep sending the fax until they think we got it, and the fax just keeps printing here. We prefer to be an environmentally-conscious company.

Reason Two: It Prints Badly
Anyone seen an advertisement for a multi-function printer, where they said faxes will print super fast, clean, and crisp. Let’s just be realistic now. Seriously, we never had this in our entire life. All the faxes we ever got was poorly sent, barely unreadable, and the list go on. It is quite pointless.

Reason Three: We Have Emails
While Indonesia is probably not the best country with the best internet connection out there, but we are definitely getting there. Internet connections are getting more affordable and everyone seems to have a BlackBerry (excluding us, technically). So we assume that emails are no longer an issue. And isn’t it great if we can keep all documents digital and easily accessible any time?

So why are we still using faxes? We don’t, and we’re stopping now.

PS: We’re not ditching our fax machine and it will still be there, but we’re just going to reduce its usage significantly.

Concept Magazine

We just acquired our first iPad. It’s here, it has that gorgeous screen as expected, and it feels great. And for the next few weeks, we’re going to start converting our portfolio photos to a perfect size for this device, and we’re going to try reducing the number of things to carry when we’re out for a meeting. This is gonna be great. Below are the mandatory unboxing photos.
