Five Behaviour Design Principles You Never Suspected Would Work

A while ago, I was invited by friend-of-the-studio Iskander Smit to speak at a Behavior Design Amsterdam meetup. Much of our work is related to behaviour change, but we try to steer clear of the reductionist thinking that is quite prevalent in the field. So I decided to use the opportunity of presenting to a […]

Week 250

Last week I was in the Netherlands to wrap up some stuff at our Utrecht studio and to discuss a realign of the studio (more on that later!). On Tuesday I caught up with some people in Amsterdam and on Wednesday I made my way back to Berlin, just in time for the games.net summer […]

Week 223

I spent a fair part of last week video editing the results of the workshop we did at the Mozilla Festival in London a couple of weeks ago. Editing demoes into something concise without losing the essence is a very time consuming but fun process. We’ll share the video as soon as we get a […]

Week 209

As you may have noticed, Alper, Simon and myself have been running a tiny app project on the side. It’s called Cuppings and it helps you find good coffee spots near you. This project grew out of a shared passion for coffee and actually started out as an idea for a coffee tasting diary app […]

Week 201

Lots of logistics this week and new projects getting started. I was due to be back in the Netherlands for some meetings so I started Monday in Utrecht at Hubbub HQ while Kars went to Info.nl to work on ASARI1. We’re really happy to be working together with our old friends over in Amsterdam and […]

Week 199–200

These notes cover the past two weeks. Week 199 covered the tail end of my honeymoon on Bali. Spending time on the island was a pleasure as always. (I’ve lost count, but I think this was my sixth visit.) My absence combined with a temporary lull in client work gave Alper the opportunity to relax […]

Week 198

Last week was a slow one but I’m getting things in order for when Kars gets back. Rounding up a bunch of stuff and closing new consulting work that we will be working on over the summer. I also discussed my participation on a quantified self track at MLOVE where I’ll be talking about the […]

Week 197

A brief week for us this past one, I travelled to Utrecht to do some work at headquarters, give a talk and most importantly for Kars’s marriage. Kars’s week was a bit shorter than usual for the same reasons and while I am writing this he should be on a tropical island. The studio will […]

Week 196

Last week, Alper spent time leading development on Victory Boogie Woogie and Ripple Effect while I lead the design. For the former, we worked on the final update which should considerably improve the homepage. It’s always a challenge to design ahead of actual content. Now that the game has been running for some time we […]

Week 195

Last week we were busy evaluating KAIGARA post-pilot information and sketching out a course to develop the final game. We received tons of player input, client input and we came up with a bunch of ideas of our own to improve the game. We’re right now busy agreeing on a coherent plan from that set […]
