Glass-Bottom Boat

Lighter than a wood or aluminum canoe, tough as bullet-proof glass and entirely transparent on the bottom, these designs provide a completely new way to experience water life around you.

It gets better: the kayak equivalent to the transparent canoe is a carbon kevlar frame design that has a military-grade transparent urethane skin - and it folds up small enough to carry with you in a backpack. Setting it up to be water-worthy takes about a half an hour but the lightweight portability means you can bring it virtually anywhere.

What to include in your design contracts

An excellent article by designer and prolific Tweeter, Brian Hoff at Design Cubical.

6- Client / Designer Responsibilities

Knowing who and what each party is responsible for is important and must be stated up front; ie: printer collaboration, typographic errors, etc.

Also if the client provides you materials to work from and they’re lost or damaged it must be accounted and compensated for.
