Why Interior Designers Need to Know About QR Codes



Go ahead....scan the code with your code reading app and see where it takes you!

Beryn Hammil knows her stuff.  She’s not only an interior designer but a self-proclaimed chic-geek propeller hat wearing techy.  If you follow her blog, Facebook or Twitter, it’s a wonder she has the time to do anything, besides inform her followers on the latest and greatest tips and tricks of the tech world. 

One subject in particular that we feel is important for designers to learn about is a unique bar code called a QR code.  You’ve seen them before and maybe overlooked the tiny square or didn’t know (or care) what they were…well,  according to Beryn, if you haven’t already, you must start using a QR code reader app on your smartphone.

Don’t know what a QR code is?  Don’t know why you need to know how to use it?  Find out here!

OMG! You’ve Lost Your Smartphone or Tablet! Now What?


We thought this article might be of good use for all of you designers out there who depend on your Smartphone or iPad like it’s oxygen.  Well Beryn Hammil, our go-to for anything tech related has written a helpful article on her blog DESIGN TECH TONICS about what do when your life line goes missing (instead of rocking back and forth in a corner).

I hope you never have that heart stopping feeling that you’ve lost your smartphone or tablet device. First there’s that frantic rummaging around in the bottomless pit of your handbag, tote bag, or briefcase, or tapping on every single pocket on all your clothing. Then you stop in your tracks to recall the last time you had it. Bewildered, you stand there as if in a trance, straining your brain to remember the last moment it was in your possession. And then there’s the realization that it’s gone. Truly gone. Read more….
