Ziptoss has made a complete guide for you and has listed some apps for renting electric scooters! 

Riding an electric scooter is very convenient when you’re going around town doing some errands, it’s also good for outdoor activities in Korea. Electric scooters were introduced back in 2018 to South Korea and are now being used in downtown areas such as Seoul, Daegu, and Busan.

  1. Lime(라임)
  • Basic fee: 1,200 Won
  • Per minute: 120 Won

Lime has one of the most expensive services, but the advantage of their scooters is that it’s very easy to manage in terms of balance, and it also has a speedometer attached which makes it convenient. 

  1. Kickgoing(킥고잉)
  • Basic fee: 1,000 Won

  1. Beam(빔)
  • Basic fee: 600 Won

The kickboard deck has enough space for your feet.  It’s a bit heavier than the others, but the advantage of that is even when passing through uneven areas, their e-scooters don’t shake as much.

These are more difficult to find compared to the other companies but their e-scooters are very lightweight and slim which makes them much easier to use.

5 Ways to Organize Your Office

5 Ways to Organize Your Office

Your work can falter when you have a messy office with papers scattered everywhere, missing documents, and no labels. When your office is disorganized, so are your thoughts and work ethics. Your concentration would dwindle, and you may even lose some important files that you need to finish your project!

Organize your office with our five tips on decluttering your workplace! You will be able to find those much-needed documents faster, and you’ll prevent the horrendous situation where an important document is accidentally sent to the shredder.

1.  Declutter Your Office

When your workplace clutter is piling up faster than your work is, you need a good decluttering to get rid of unnecessary items, store unneeded supplies, and keep your office clear of any knick-knacks.

Declutter office areas one place at a time to avoid mixing workplace necessities together. Take the time to go through each item to decipher whether you need to trash it, store it, or keep it within reach for easy access. For personal office desks, encourage coworkers to clean up after themselves, and limit the amount of personal belongings sitting on desks.

Keep the frequently used items, such as printer paper, staplers, and chargers on hand for a quick grab, while others like printer ink and spare pens should be stored in the supply closet, preferably in baskets or boxes with proper labels. Any trash items, junk documents, and unneeded drafts should be shredded and thrown away.

2.  Organize Your Files

Your files – both physical and digital, are the essence of your work, and where you record all the important information you need for your project. Files are of utmost importance around the office, as without them, your workplace cannot function properly.

Organize your paper files by segregating them into separate folders based on the department responsible for these files, project, and date. Arrange them in an easy-to-read way so anyone who needs to refer back to these documents would easily find the information they are looking for. This would decrease the time taken to look for documents.

Organize digital files with keywords and notes that would help you find them using the search function. For instance, all files referring to Project X should be filed in one folder named so, and labeled with [PROJECT X] in each filename. Include the date and specifics of the files as well. Alternatively, you can create a secure online database for your files to back them up.

3.  Label Everything

One mistake many workplaces make is not labeling anything. Labels are necessary for a reason: you get to find needed documents at first glance. Labels tell you what the contents of a file, folder, or storage area is without needing to inspect the contents. These not only save time and effort, but they make it easy for anyone to find what they need even if they’re new.

Invest in a label machine to make your labels look professional, or simply use label stickers that you can write on if you prefer to make manual labels. Everything from supplies to files should be labeled, and don’t forget to label your cables, chargers, and digital files as well!

4.  Duplicate Important Files

Have you ever had those important files you accidentally deleted, shredded, or tossed away? Those important documents should be kept under lock and key as they are essential to your work. For digital files, back them up to a secure cloud storage so you can have a copy when you need it. Physical files may be duplicated using the copy machine.

Keep important documents separate from others to avoid accidental mix-ups. If these documents are necessary in everyday tasks, then keep them on hand for easy access. Otherwise, store them in the file cabinet under labeled folders.

5.  Keep Important Office Supplies within Reach

Nothing is more annoying than missing that stapler just when you need it, except when it’s looking for a working pen right when you need to jot down important information. Keep these within reach: on your desk, in an optimal drawer, or in a storage basket you can easily reach while on your desk.

If you have shared office supplies, then organize the office to make sure these are accessible to all employees. Printers, for example, should be within reach of the wireless network so every employee can print their documents with ease.

Who is a treatment designer and what does he do?

Who is a treatment designer and what does he do?

Treatment design is a huge and broad field, but when it comes to treatment design — it’s a narrow area that most designers haven’t heard of. Put it simply, treatments are directors’ treatments that are needed by advertising productions and help them to sell a director to a customer. During the tender for a promotional video, directors rarely make treatments and that is why they turn to such special people.

What is important in this profession?

Vision and the ability to make treatments quickly and efficiently play an important role.  Most often, 2 days are given to the project, so clients value the ability to work efficiently and quickly most of all. Sometimes it happens that work has to be done during one night, and it is absolutely normal, there is no concept of “working day” in this field.

It is also very important for a treatment designer to know foreign languages and the more languages he/she knows, the better. In this field, you constantly have to work on treatments in Swedish, German, Spanish, and English. Customers appreciate multilingual designers as they do not have to pay extra for a translator and spend time on translating the information and texts for a treatment.

Every designer has their own cool cases that they can be proud of. In the field of treatment, designers are proud not of their works, but of the advertisements filmed on them. It is not always possible to win a tender, since success is influenced not only by the treatment itself but also by the financial component, the attitude of a client to a customer, and other factors. But when the tender is won, the designer gets a huge plus and subsequent projects with this director are guaranteed to him.

Treatments for Samsung, New Balance, Converse

Before I became advanced in this area, I have been working for 2 years and have done 200 projects. There are such large production companies as Park Production, Caviar, Spark & Riot, and Anonymous Content among my customers. All of them have huge bases of directors who constantly need help with treatments.

One of the most striking projects was the treatments for Samsung. The director and the customer had a goal to see a bright, cool treatment. Here’s what we got after two days of work.

A nice animation project we have created with a young American director for Converse. The brand launched a new footwear collection for February 14.

And one of the best works that the New Balance customer liked was done for the English market for the brand’s fall campaign.

Customer Contact

For two years, I have been personally meeting my clients, flying to other countries to see them in person and say thank for their trust. Customers feel confident when they see someone they are working with or want to work with in the future. For those who want to try themselves as a treatment designer, it is crucial to adapt to “anytime and anywhere” working conditions, speak several languages, be able to communicate with people from different cultural communities, and send their messages professionally.  In addition, you must always ride the crest of the wave and follow the trends in this field, watch new advertisements and cinema premieres. You will never lose the Inspiration for such a job!
