Hubbub has gone into hibernation.

Week 257

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.

Full house for the TI final

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.
