Brochure-ware

Been busy… kindof. Busy in a waiting around sort of way. Slow suppliers are the bane of my life. That’s the thing about fast-turnover/low-inventory internet businesses… you’re at the mercy of the supply chain… suddenly it’s Thursday and Nothing Gets Done On Friday, and then it’s the weekend and you’ve lost another 4 days – so you’ve got to go back all-apologies to your customers, wait, wait, wait, wait.

Anyway… been making little brochures and booklets and whatnot. I’m going to include one of the little brochure things (they’re about the size of a business card) in each box…

Basically consisting of a bunch of little pictures of Golden-Mean things. The brochure I’m getting done at a local printers – the booklet… I’m not sure if I’ll use these to be honest. I got them done at http://www.mypublisher.com/ – and they only cost a couple of dollars each… but they don’t have a web-interface – you have to download a bit of software, and I had all manner of hassles trying to upload the things. They sent me about 100 emails reminding me that “my discount was due to expire”, but by the time I’d finally got the thing uploaded, I lacked confidence in the robustness of their process… it was kindof “no that’s ok, if I touch it I’ll probably break it again”.

Not sure how fair that is, but there you go.

When the little brochures are (finally) done, THEN I’ll start approaching retailers.

Wake me up when it’s 2020

Okay, it's 2020 now I guess. [br]I've been making Golden Mean Calipers for about 10 years now.

Golden Mean Caliper Comparison Chart

I thought it might be useful for people to be able to compare all the calipers on the one page, so I made a comparison chart.

Demo of Golden Ratio in Artistic Composition (fairly disorganised)

Over the years, I've built up a collection of Golden Ratio Calipers... and I decided it might be quite useful for people if I made a video comparing them. Some of them are really good - some terrible. So I set up my camera... and found that my video-space looked a bit bare... needed a painting. So I decided to…

Why The Golden Ratio Works For Flowers

Fairly amazing video going into the maths of why flowers (and pine-cones, relative leaf positions etc) are so often based fibonacci numbers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj8Sg8qnjOg And it's fairly amazing because I actually understood it. It's been a loooong time since I tangled with quadratic equations, but (on the 2nd watch) this did actually make sense to me. I always thought that with…

Limited Run : Neon Colour Range

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoPqpqB6er0 I was tinkering with these colours a while back... and then someone with exceptional taste and style made a big order for a whole range of coloured ones... and every one was all "ooh!!!" So I made some for the local art gallery - and they all sold as well. So I made enquiries about getting a lot more…

New Product Videos

I'm putting together a series of product videos... one for each of the 10 or so different calipers that I make. [br]They will all look kindof the same... they're mainly for embedding in shop pages and so on. Because they'll all look kindof the same, I've made a separate youtube channel so subscribers don't lose their minds with boredom. https://youtu.be/qvXxBQCkF30…
