Week 220

Last Mon­day Kars hand­ed over the run­ning engage­ments to me and tied up some loose ends for ASARI and SABA before jump­ing on a plane to NYC. He’s there for a week of sight-see­ing with his love­ly wife before I fol­low him for work. That left me with a pro­duc­tive week where I inte­grat­ed the […]

Week 219

Hav­ing returned from Lon­don over the week­end, I was back in the Utrecht stu­dio and joined by Alper who would be here the whole week. Our nor­mal rou­tine of remote col­lab­o­ra­tion is pret­ty effec­tive but it’s fun—and useful—to have the occa­sion­al week of work­ing face-to-face. On Mon­day I tied up some loose ends from our […]

Week 217

Alper start­ed last week putting the final touch­es on the code-y bits behind a Tum­blr we set up to cap­ture a part of the things that pass through Hubbub’s semi-closed stu­dio chat chan­nel. Mean­while, I did some work on a Pro­cess­ing sketch that would help Simon with the art for the playable info­graph­ics we’re mak­ing […]

Week 216

Last week was busy again with us plan­ning the last quar­ter of the year. 2013 will be over before we know it and we’re going to make the best of it. The Cup­pings cof­fee tast­ing games is pro­ceed­ing excel­lent­ly. The game has received an updat­ed lay­out and is being pushed out to be test­ed at […]

Week 214

While I was com­ing down from my cold, Kars spent the week criss­cross­ing the Nether­lands attend­ing meet­ings of var­i­ous kinds. One such meet­ing was about the future of edu­ca­tion in a tru­ly idyl­lic loca­tion pic­tured below. ASARI is in its final phase, run­ning through spread­sheets to see how the design will work out with real […]

Week 211

Last week, Alper was away on hol­i­day in Japan, mak­ing a coura­geous effort to drink all the cof­fee in Japan. His trav­els con­tin­ue this week, let’s hope he does not spon­ta­neous­ly com­bust. I was joined by Simon on Tues­day for a day of work on ASARI. We detailed the design of the toy­like inter­ac­tive info­graph­ics […]

Week 210

Last Mon­day I was in Utrecht to work on site with Kars and take care of some for­mal­i­ties we had pre­pared when Kars was in Berlin. On Tues­day while I was in the train back, Kars was in Ams­ter­dam catch­ing up with a bunch of good friends (some­thing I had done the night before by […]

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 206–207

I’m writ­ing up two weeks in one go, for no par­tic­u­lar rea­son oth­er than that I was on a short hol­i­day in Stock­holm last week even though it was my turn to do notes. For shame. (STHLM is a rec­om­mend­ed des­ti­na­tion, I should add.) Alper wrapped up project SAME togeth­er with Sebas­t­ian. They doc­u­ment­ed the […]

Week 205

Last week was a deci­sive week for both ASARI and SAME, projects in two coun­tries that both went through their final phas­es. Kars prepped ASARI for a client pre­sen­ta­tion. He went through the con­cept with the Info.nl design team and sketched out our con­cepts for the final pre­sen­ta­tion which was received well. We have thought […]
