Hello The Ones!
We hope all is well!
Back to our usual programming, where we share the 3-5 things that have us thinking. This week we cover magic, falsehoods and design principles. Also, we've been sharing the work of artist Jessica Eaton over on Instagram. A happy discovery which we thought you'd like.
LISTEN: This is actually a recommendation from one of you, specifically you Lia; thank you for sharing this with us! A fascinating short podcast episode 'Alternate', from the show The Digital Human. It's a mind bender. If you haven't come across the 'Mandela Effect' yet, then listen here and tell us from 1-infinity how much your mind is blown.
A Quote: “When people write, healthy changes occur”. This is a line from Professor J. Pennebaker's book, 'The Secret Life of Pronouns'. #TheLearner fits into this equation. If you'd like to hear some feedback from other 'Learners' who've bought a copy, some reviews are here (scroll down).
Do: One of the persist elements of our product development is working to our design codes. Setting up any endeavour typically does better when fundamental principles are articulated. The team at Fast Co. Design spoke with designers across Facebook, IBM, Fuse Projects and more to see what they consider when creating. Read here and then consider what principles you'd outline for any side project you're currently working on.
Read: It started with an innocuous visit to a magic shop...This fascinating insight into the formative moment of a MIT professor made us consider more deeply how serendipitous experiences can have an outsize impact on us. Yes to more adventure and randomness, we say!
That's all for now. Remember, stay curious and keep learning.
And please reply to this note and tell us what you're interested in at the moment.
