Creativity self assessment

Take this test to see where you can improve your creativity. It's a rather short test, so I can't imagine that it would be very precise. I generally have a bad preconception about such tests, but after completing it, I felt that the results were spot on.

Professional satisfaction

King of Bahrain being presented with the Identity CardJust wanted to share a personal achievement. Some time ago I was asked to design the new national identity smart card of Bahrain. The first copy was presented to His Majesty King Hamad (on the right) yesterday. By the way, he is the man behind the idea of the smart card itself. It was probably the most complex design job I ever had a chance to work on.

Merry DIY Xmas!

DIY xmas card

We'd like to wish you Merry Xmas with a do it yourself CreativeBits Christmas card. Just click the card above to download the pdf file. Print it on any paper (the thicker the better). Put glue on the back and fold it in the middle. Cut out the tree and the ornaments. The thicker the paper the bigger the slots should be. Assemble the tree.

It's been a great ride and we're just getting started

CreativeBits is 6 month old. We started it because we felt we should try to give something back to the design community. I was so happy to see Jim joining me in my efforts as an author.

Hardware upgrades

You may have noticed that CreativeBits was down for the last 24 hours. My hosting company decided a month or so ago, that it's time to move it's servers to a new multi-million dollar state of the art datacenter. Biometric security system, fire protection, connection to the Internet backbone via Tier 1, power feed from three separate power grids, UPS and diesel generator for backup power. What else could you ask for? For more details read this.
