Be nice. Or else.

Interesting style, not really my type but kudos for being different. Loads very slow tho, took me over a minute to see everything in place.
and apart from everything else, this cute friend is actually very annoying: http://imgur.com/a/05skN
Nope. I've been in that point before (a newspaper full of hate speech and lies). I told them to face and it was one of the best moments of my career.
Turned down most of the full time offers as I'm a freelancer. A couple of them were worth going to the interview, but didn't end up with an agreement.
For freelance projects, from what i experienced, I can say Dribbble clients are more aware of the time and money needed for what they want.
Behance: +16k appreciations, featured on the homepage and curated galleries a few times, total client in 8 years: 4
Dribbble: 2.4k likes, never made it to the homepage, total clients in 5 years: 5
However, the amount of messages I received from Behance was quite a lot compared to Dribbble, especially for full-time gigs.
"is packaging design a complete waste of time and money? I’d argue that it should simply be the supermarket that is the entity. All products within the supermarket should be absolutely consistent."
makes sense? nope.
Lifesum, Nike+ RunClub, Munchery.
Maybe not really "top 3", but I really enjoy how they follow the trends but not become similar to other apps.
And I always take another look at AirBnb when I start designing a new app.
The best is the combination of both, the cafe in a cw space :) I used to be at WeWork and thought staying at the cafe was more productive than the office most of the time.
Currently working from home if I have to be quicker (big screen & faster internet) and going to a cafe when I want to experiment new ideas or if i'm working on more boring parts of the project so I won't find myself doing something else.
I wonder if Adobe eventually buys them both. (Nightmare)
Happens all the time!
It's not you "should" but of course you can. Truth is you don't need it at all. I've worked for 4 agencies and now it's been 2 years that I'm a freelancer, I only had business cards once and never gave them to a client.
In fact, I think a followup email to say "thank you for the interview etc etc" or for anything related to your interview would work much better.
