I’m writing this note (and will be writing the next as well) because as we speak Kars is on a well-deserved holiday in Indonesia. He spent most of last week working on Camparc finalizing the design document with Aldo among a slew of other related things.
Monday evening I took interested friends to the Meltdown esports bar to watch The International finale event. The place was packed and did not have any airconditioning which made it good (for us) that the best of five was over quickly.
We continued work on Standing whose new design release is shaping up nicely. We had an update call on KEGANI to see what issues remain open and how to move forward. We are looking forward to publishing a polished and topical card game. During the small sessions that we’ve tested it we have been met with a lot of interest.
Sales efforts continued apace with us preparing upcoming consulting. We are also looking to fund a new project based on opening up surveillance as a substance to be played with. Also one of our concepts has been included in the bid book for Varna European Capital of Culture 2019.
I dropped by the Berlin UX Cocktail Hours for some catching up with local designers. Renato Valdés, founder of fitness app Human visited our Berlin studio for coffee and ramen. Kars chatted with Mapije and with some people from the Università della Svizzera italiana. At the end of the week we both gave an interview to Marrije Schaake and Maaike de Laat from Achter het Scherm who profile Dutch digital makers and document the processes they use.
