Design and Art. I like both. Sometimes both get very close. But I think there is a certain difference between them.
If you are an artist, you may be able to do anything with your feeling to express something. If you are a designer, you may still be able to do many things with your feeling, but you will have to have something responsibility to the sosiety (the customer, too). This is a big difference, I think. Basically, design work needs some logical thinking, too...
I like both design and art. Both are fun and sometimes hard, but I think I want to stay a frame builder and at the same time, have to stay as a designer.
Steel BB30, single speed, and belt drive. This is the first steel BB30 I have ever had. Steel BB is 158g and Ti BB is 90g. 68g heavier. It is easier to keep the aligment after welding than Ti BB30.
For stiffness, Steel BB30 is 85% stiffer and 75% heavier than Ti BB30. How do you like it?
We got two Ti road frames from Japan at the same time. I welded one of them and the other one was welded by Tim. We did a careful work for these two Japanese so that these guys can get satisfaction with these two frames.
It is hard to design logos. Sometimes it looks cheap depends on the design, and sometimes it looks professional...
The size, clearance of the letters, balance, beauty, and sound, etc, etc... It is hard and takes time to design a good logo, but very very interesting.
