At new client meetings, half the time I introduce myself as a “professional nerd” – I have a real title, but professional nerd is just as accurate. And the thing about professional nerds is that they’re usually also personal nerds, too.
With that, I wanted to write about a personal project I completed recently – in part because I think it’s cool, and also because it involves the side of development we don’t get to do as often. Most of our creations at Carbon8 are digital, but not everyone knows we can do the more physical side of technology as well.
To start from the beginning, a few months ago my girlfriend encouraged me to do something special for myself for my birthday. I think she wanted me to go heli-skiing or something equally extreme – the type of things she would do. Unfortunately, her plan backfired. After thinking a day or two, I told her I was going to design and build a video doorbell.

Infographics are playing a bigger part in the marketing world, and with good reason. Infographics offer distilled, concentrated representations of important information that usually makes up pages and pages of research reports that honestly, no one really wants to read. When properly designed they're attractive, easy to understand and of course, informative. But are they really a new concept? Hardly.
