Hat tip to Olaf Kick Scooter inventor Boštjan Žagar and his team for creating this practical and fun rolling bag with a built-in scooter! How fun would it be to scoot through an airport on one of these? Or, even commuting to work? Olaf comes in an urban model or the more sleek business model.

Happy 5th Birthday TeuxDeux

TeuxDeux

Five years ago today, Cameron, Evan and I announced TeuxDeux, a simple, design-y to-do app. (Cameron’s very first product video still puts a huge smile on my face. Keep in mind, the app UI has changed since then…)

TeuxDeux was born over a lunch conversation where I shared my vision of a calendar based to-app and 3 days later we had a working prototype. 5 years and several updates and revisions later, TeuxDeux is helping keep thousands of happy user stay organized.

The secret is to keep TeuxDeux as your browser landing page, so every time you open a browser window you are being reminded what you should be working on. Organize your to-do’s on our simple, list based calendar view. Cross off what you’ve completed and whatever you don’t cross off, will automatically move to the next day. You can also create your custom ‘someday’ columns on the bottom area for the things that you just need to get out of your head. And, take your to-do’s with you on the go, with our iPhone app.

Happy 5th birthday TeuxDeux. I don’t know what I would do without you.

I am really excited over the launch of our CreativeMornings GIF Channel. I include GIFs in my emails regularly. I find them often way more efficient as words. They bring lightness and fun to what otherwise would be a very serious and dry message.

We launched the GIF Channel with the help Freshbooks, one of our global partners. Check it out and submit your own GIFs! I did already.

Friends Work Here

(Big thanks to the talented Bas Berkhout for the above video. And to Tory Williams for the photos used within.)

Earlier this spring I opened a new co-working space called FRIENDS in the heart of Boerum Hill Brooklyn. It is the more grown-up version of my first co-working space Studiomates which I ran out of DUMBO, Brooklyn, just a few subway stops away.

As someone who puts great emphasis on surrounding myself with people that I admire and that inspire me, this new work home has been life changing. FRIENDS is attached to the artists in residence of the Invisible Dog and Tattly, right below us on the second floor. This beautiful old factory building is bursting with creativity and generous, kind people.

We have one desk available right now. Join us?
