Creative Inspirations: The Art and Website of Maxwell Holyoke-Hirsch

by Scott on February 9, 2011 · 18 comments

in Inspiration

Vibrant illustrations and a beautifully clean and simple portfolio site design combine for today’s creative inspiration.
Maxwell Holyoke-Hirsch is a brilliant illustrator and designer, and he also has a lovely website. Three rows of overlapping circular icons provide navigation to Holyoke-Hirsch’s design portfolio. On hover each comes alive with a little shake and fade, and clicking through we discover that each is a cutout from one of the artist’s many published illustrations, or to his work for the product development firm Speck Design. The “next page” link on the left brings up a second set of circular cutouts with links. You’re never sure where you are going, but you want to keep exploring.

The kite flying away is my favorite of the bunch.

The artwork is beautiful, but as a web-person, I’m in love with the website. It’s minimalistic, accessible, pleasing, and is thus the best way to showcase artwork/design.

, 12 Threads: 3 Posts: 31 do u really think u deserved my bloody money more than me? Oh yeah, you are the smart businessman, and i am just an idiot student, so you certainly do. i would be more than happy to fully cover poor pakistani’s (or any other nation) soul up to $4/pp (cutting, pasting, synonyms, antonyms => honest writing industry charges), but since my complain is on no writer will be paid anyway…. i actually can not even proceed with my return request because i want a full refund and only second option offering 40% is active. moreover i am not planning to supply your database with my intellectual property once is ready. and lastly i would die of embarrassment if my own essay given to you would sabotage my own essay given to professor showing plagiarism. Is there any third solution offered as an atonement? looking forward to hear from you, it would be great to have a business conversation, since your reps are not able to exceed their competencies. sincerely yours The Idiot Student Order: 1. I am completely dissatisfied with the quality of the paper, so I have decided to write it myself. I request a full refund.* *Please note that if you choose this option, the paper we created will be immediately posted online. A full refund is only issued when you provide your own version of the paper. It will serve as evidence that our writer’s work did not meet any of your expectations. The paper you provide will be discarded immediately after our review and will not be stored in our internal database or shared with any third party. You must upload your own paper within 7 days, if your order is less than 30 pages long. If your order exceeds 30 pages, you have 14 days to upload your own version. 2. I am not fully satisfied with the quality of the paper. However, I accept it and will revise it myself. I request a partial refund.* *If you choose this option, you are automatically provided with the MS Word version of the paper. As soon as you provide a valid dispute, or your own revised version of our paper, up to 40% could be refunded, at the Dispute Department’s discretion. Your comments *

Start a chargeback with your payment processor. Forget about trying to deal with the company–they’re professional cheats and they’ve been doing this for years. Their plan is to string you out long enough that payment processors won’t even initiate a chargeback due to the time lapse.

Joined: Jun 3, 12 Threads: 3 Posts: 31 a little more details i have never seen anything even close to the joke they send me as a “research paper”. i am new yorker from europe and for couple precious minutes, while trying to decode this enigma product, i was seriously concerned that something happened to my long acquired english skills. but not, even though not great they are still sufficient enough to comprehensive reading and survive in this new-age-business-jungle. lucky me i ordered only one masterpiece from 3 i was planning to. i can almost feel like a winner, or at least a little bit less of a loser ($66 of my hard made money) after using miki-maus.to be continued…@pheelyks – thx a lot i’m in the middle of the process

Which is complete and utter bullsh*t. If the customer received a paper that is copy/pasted from websites and full of glaring errors in grammar, word usage, etc., then you failed to deliver what they ordered and they are entitled to a refund. Enough chargebacks and you’ll lose yet another payment processing account.

Sad to see you still cheat customers and writers in the same way, fucktard.
Gabriel:

According to the customer, your site is set up so that they can’t start a dispute requesting a full refund. You work for a crook. You help him do crooked things. You are fully aware of this. I’m sorry you live in such a sh*tty country where the only way you can earn a semi-decent living is by being a crook, but that doesn’t give you a leg to stand on here.

yeah – this is my own paper plagiarized so far with no added content,

that’s exactly the issue i have brought here, not only my own paper was misused, but also i am in the dead loop of not being able to cancel it
Gabriel:

even better – 1. i had NO paper delivered – i refused to accept it after the preview 2. another policy from your website allowing me cancellation and full refund in case if you are not able to assign the writer – after i was offered to revise this paper by another writer after couple of hours “No writer was found” but i am still not able to proceed any further and cancelled it in written form to at least two different representatives. and i strongly believe that even though “your website policy says….” it most likely does not override the United States legislature.

You sent them your own paper? You know that they’ll be reselling it to other students at a discount rate, right? Also, unfortunately, they aren’t subject to US laws, because they aren’t a US company. The chargeback is the way to go–make sure you follow through on it. The reason these companies stay in business is because most customers are either ignorant about chargebacks or are too lazy to put in the time involved.

Joined: May 24, 12 Threads: 1 Posts: 39 That’s an interesting situation. They want you to submit a brand new paper that shows them that you didn’t use what they provided, but if you’re saying that you initially submitted your own work to them and they didn’t change it, I don’t know what they can reasonably expect you to do…write yet another paper? Hopefully the chargeback procedure is successful. How long was the paper?

Joined: May 24, 12 Threads: 1 Posts: 39 I don’t understand something. On their website the only thing that corresponds to the $4/page charge that you talked about was proofreading services-at a high school level in 24 hours or at an upper undergrad level in a week. You say you spent $66, but that doesn’t divide evenly. The main thing I don’t understand is this: “Proofreading includes correction of spelling, grammar and punctuation mistakes. No original content will be added.” So where does plagiarism come into play here? And you complain that they didn’t add anything to the paper, but for $4 a page, they openly stated that they wouldn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not defending them, I just don’t understand how what you’re saying they did applies to a proofreading job. Does your educational institution offer tutoring? Surely they’d help with just proofreading. On another note, I have never seen such a colorful and extensive price breakdown! I think I’m going to turn that into a math assignment.
