I've had an idea for something new. I've mulled it over, bounced it off a colleague or two and I think it might, just might, be a goer.
You see, every know and then I get the urge to impart knowledge that I've accumulated on others, usually younger designers. OK, sometimes it's reminisciences about PMT cameras and Rotring pens, but sometimes, very occasionally, it's something that might actually prove useful. Usually, it's stuff that I wish I'd known when I was at their stage of life/career.
It might be something very small, like The En-rule Rule, or it might be something big, like The Dead Designer Rule. Whatever it is, I give it in good faith and in the geniune hope that it proves useful.
So here we are then: introducing a new Ace Jet series: Uncommon Knowledge, a bit snappier than my original title (but which might serve as a suitable sub-heading), Stuff I wish I'd known much, much earlier in my career.
Perhaps it'll prove to be a very short series or perhaps I'll just be telling you things you already know but I'm going to give it a whirl and see how it goes. Let me know what you think.
