This GIF made me laugh. So many emotions.
Last night I learned abut the existence of Senior Planet, think co-working space for people 60 and up. Senior Planets host free classes, workshops, talks and social and cultural events, offering older New Yorkers the chance to learn, work and explore new ways to thrive in today’s digital world. YES!
Live in NYC? Want to volunteer at the local Senior Planet? Here’s what they are looking for.
This video on the CreativeMornings/San Diego chapter just took my breath away. It’s been almost 8 years since I had the simple idea of opening my co-working space to host a small breakfast gathering. And now, it has spread in over 55 countries, happening in 133 cities every month. Put on by our incredible hosts and their volunteer teams. The world is a magical place. You just have to find your people. So much love for this community.
So good: The Art Institute of Chicago created a 3D replica of Van Gogh’s famous Bedroom painting, making the room available for rent on Airbnb for only US$10 a night.
Read by Famous sells books that were owned and read by people who have achieved high levels of recognition in their particular fields. Not copies of titles they have read, but the actual books that these people owned and read. The proceeds from the sales benefit book and literacy focused non-profits.
I love this!
Wide awake or sleepy? Say it with these pillow cases. Don’t we all love subliminal messages?
I just spent a ridiculous amount of time designing monsters with Tinybop’s Monster app.
Jung Soo Park has created a digital gallery of pixelated interpretations of iconic designs. Made me smile.
Heinz dressed dozens of Dachshunds in hot dog buns for their Super Bowl ad. This made me laugh.
The folks behind Red Paper Plane believe that “Missions” are a whole new way to learn and play for little ones. They created mission based design challenges for the whole family, based on a creative process – 20 minutes per day for several days. This is fantastic! Especially for snowy winter weekends!
I’ll totally try the Spaceship Mission with Tilo (5) this weekend.
I am not convinced this LEGO Lunch box is all that practical but it sure would make
a my little boy’s head explode!
My friend Mac Premo recently spoke at CreativeMornings/NYC. In his talk he discusses the relationship between his art and commercial practices, and how they enhance each other.
Please note the podium he is standing next to. I would tweak the slides of my talks forever, he builds a podium that holds his hat and drink. –> !!!
