Applied Discovery and a Hold On Love

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of January 6th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas
Applied Discovery: What future are we building, given that we play a role in such an important process?

A Post On Product: Most software is frustrating, broken, and in all honesty, a disservice to humanity. People should be ashamed to be associated with the vast majority of software that exists today.

How To Disrupt Yourself: Many creative companies talk about hiring “different” talent, but here are the realities of hiring outsiders and allowing them make a difference to your culture and end product.

Invite Serendipity To Your Cafe: If you have the courage to embrace ambiguity and not fear a poor outcome, you can create the conditions for innovation.

Products
Aura: A cleverly designed system that both monitors and positively impacts your sleep experience.

Rassen: Japanese design firm Nendo redesigned chopsticks to solve the utensils’ major flaw — it only took 4000 years.

Buccaneer: One of the most beautiful 3D printers we’ve ever seen and one of the first that we’ve been able to afford.

Tile: A small square tracker that can either be stuck to objects or affixed with a keyring like Chipolo, but it has a number of unique features that help retrieve lost items

Visuals
A Hold On Love: A visual love letter to discovering dance music for the first time.

WW2 Design Solutions: Collection of photos showing life in wartime London adapting through the application of black and white graphic design and some makeshift interior decoration.

Foam: Described by the artist as being “like the landscape of a primordial planet”, the large cloud-like forms were pumped up from the floor in eight different locations, creating a scene that was constantly in motion inside an otherwise black room.
