Why you should give yourself permission to screw up

The concept of an idea coming to you as a light bulb is a complete lie.  Ideas are work.  Idea mean screwing up and getting things wrong to find what is right. This article is a great look at why giving yourself permission to screw up and understand the power it can have. I think it is a key part of any creative process and something too many creatives are not in touch with. Read the article here.

Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek

First, this NY Times article is worth a read because it is am amazing story.  But the NY Times went well beyond just publishing article as they created a really nice HTML5 design for the article that integrated animation, videos and a number of other small design touches that really bring the article to life in a whole new way.  Read the article and check out the experience here.

Spaceteam iPhone App

Do you like pushing buttons and shouting at your friends? Spaceteam is a cooperative party game for 2 to 4 players who shout technobabble at each other until their ship explodes. It is a strangely fun and compelling team building exercise. Download the app here.

The worlds first pixelated street appeared in London from Jan 11-13 at Truman Brewery on London’s Brick Lane to promote Disney’s Wreck-It-Ralph. With pixelated animals, an augmented reality game and a lot of humor this installation was brilliant. Watch the video of the ‘making-of’ here.
