Mammoth Pirates and the Intercontinental Drift

Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of August 28th brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.


The Mammoth Pirates: In Russia’s Arctic north, a new kind of gold rush is under way.

Intercontinental Drift: The modern flâneur moves through not one, but many dimensions of public space — each illuminating fractures in the other.

Generative Design: Art is slowly being created by AI, although there is arguably still no, or very little, real creativity in it.

Are We All Bored With Describing People As Creatives Yet?: We’re all guilty of saying it, but what does it actually mean when we refer to someone as ‘a creative’?


Pattern: A simple, focused, drawing application for early stage design and ideation.

Shaper’s Origin: Leverages computer vision and augmented reality to take the learning curve out of CNC machining.

Wade & Wendy: A newly funded, VC backed company that’s bringing artificial intelligence / machine learning to the recruiting / HR space with the mission of making the process more human for both applicants and hiring managers.


The Refugee Nation: The official flag for The Refugee Nation, a team of ten refugees currently competing in the Rio Olympics, draws its colour scheme and design from lifejackets.

Artificial Sunshine: Neon-drenched memories of vacations in Blackpool, the ‘Vegas’ of Northern England

Slow TV: Earlier this month, Netflix debuted a number of slow TV shows on their service, including shows about knitting and firewood, which were very popular in Norway.
