What people are saying about us
was having serious issues with my older laptop, but was worried about leaving it with a technician that I didn't know. I was relieved to find Chicago Computer Teks online, and even more relieved that they're local. The technician responded right away and was able to diagnose the issue immediately. Chicago Computer Teks was able to not only solve the problems that I was having, but make the proper fixes so that the issues wouldn't happen again. I'll certainly call on them in the future, and recommend that anyone else frustrated by their computer issues does too!

Studio of the Future

Studio of the Future

The nature of a design studio as a collaborative organism is its ability to adapt to new dynamics in client needs and design disciplines. To help leverage new possibilities and address future challenges, AIGA and Adobe are teaming to present “Defining the Studio of 2015,” a series that asks design leaders to envision how their studios will evolve over the next few years. In essays, Q&As, slideshows and videos, the series features designers sharing plans and aspirations in relation to topics such as collaboration, positioning, technology, design thinking, co-creation and multidisciplinary work. Stories will be published throughout the year, but the “Defining the Studio of 2015” series already includes contributions by the likes of Susana Rodríguez de Tembleque of SYPartners; Michael Lebowitz of Brooklyn agency Big Spaceship; and an interview with Jake Barton of Local Projects. “AIGA and Adobe undertook a major research effort to define the Designers of 2015, which led to recommendations on curriculum reform and highlighted the profession’s need for deep collaborative practices,” states Richard Grefé, AIGA Executive Director. “This is the next stage in that exploration: How are leaders changing their organizational structures and expectations of a team to meet new demands for designers?” Adds Scott Morris, Senior Marketing Director for Creative Cloud at Adobe: “As our world becomes more connected and mobile, we see the creative process going through dramatic changes. As the world changes, so must the workflows, tools and services we use to create. This series will hopefully inspire designers to embrace this trend and adapt for the future.”

  • Phablet, selfie, emoji (and twerking) now in Oxford Dictionaries

    October 7, 2013

    May I wiggle my bottom while being honest with you? I have never heard the following phrase: “I am phabulously, phenomenally phlabbergasted with my phablet.” Indeed, though I have seen the word written down and projected upon my eyes, I have never, ever heard anyone actually say “phablet”. Perhaps it’s like “parenthesis” and “prestidigitation.” Words […]

    Computer hackers are out there. Many of us know that. They penetrate through corporate-secured internet firewalls, send out URL links and attachments containing malware from clear across the ocean or as near as your next door neighbor and even fabricate infected websites that mirror image ones that we trust and may use on a daily […]
