Men, get over yourselves, buy boots.
I am incredibly honored to be featured on The Brander, a fine Swiss online journal that features stories about brands and their creators, generated by renowned journalists and photographers. The independent publication is the creation of Zurich’s branding agency Branders and aims to portray big, small und exclusive brands from all over the world.
Here’s the link to my feature: Tina Roth Eisenberg – a modern Swiss Miss
My friends over at The Post Family just launched their new brand-new site. That’s reason enough to write about them, but it just so happens that they also currently feature an interview with me. And if that wasn’t enough to run around and scream Hoooray, check out the below video Sam Rosen shot while he was visiting Studiomates just a few weeks ago. Boy, this is quite a monday.
I had the honor to be featured in the swiss Sonntagsblick Magazin yesterday. A big thank you to the lovely journalist Yvonne Eckert and wonderfully talented and smooth photographer Katja Heinemann. A big hello to all new readers because of the article.
Interested in reading the article (german only)? You can download the pdf here.
I just received a copy of “Vårt Nya Hem” (Our New Home), a Swedish Interior Magazine that features a small article on swissmiss. I don’t understand a word of swedish, so I just hope, it’s a nice article.
Thank you Eva!
Tonight’s Pecha Kucha event was a fantastic experience. Even though I must say, I was flabbergasted once I saw the venue – not what I expected. It was incredibly loud, dark and there were no seats for the audience. Ever since I started the CreativeMornings 10Minute lecture series I have become really interested in the ‘packaging’ of an event and how it affects the experience. I wonder how this evening would have been perceived in a more quiet environment with seating for everyone and a noise level that would actually allow for a conversation.
The unfortunate venue aside, I loved the event. The broad range of topics was intriguing and the quality of the 6min40second presentations was impressive. While it seems a bit forced at first, to have the slides timed on a 20second interval, it really does force the presenter to keep it short and to the point. Definitely a format I will keep in mind for upcoming presentations or events. Michael has a great summary of the event, read it here.
Thanks to Marc, the gracious organizer. I am definitely looking forward to attend future Pecha Kuchas. Thanks to G for filming the event with his photocamera. For those of you interested in my presentation, here are my 400seconds of Pecha-Kucha-Fame:
A big thank you to all my loyal swissmiss readers that came out to my AIGA/Apple talk last week. According to the organizers it was the biggest Design Remixed turnout they’ve ever had. Hooray! If you were there, let me know your thoughts: Was there anything you wanted to ask but didn’t? I’d love to hear your feedback in how I can improve the presentation for another time?
Also, if you took pictures of the event, would you mind to add them to our flickr pool? Thank you so much!
For all of those of you who emailed me about possibly seeing a video of this event, I am sorry to say that I wasn’t allowed to tape it. (Which still makes me scratch my head. If I was Apple or AIGA I would film these talks and put them on the web. What a lost opportunity, no?)
During our Christmas trip to Switzerland I met up with lovely Corinna Hauri Schuessler, a journalist of the Aargauer Zeitung, a big swiss newspaper. We had a wonderful 1 hour conversation over coffee which turned into this article (PDF) in yesterday’s newspaper. (german only) I am thrilled and feel honored. Thank you Corinna.
