Week 183

Kars start­ed last week by giv­ing a lec­ture to indus­tri­al design stu­dents at my alma mater. He walked stu­dents through Beesten­bende and shared with them the fin­er points of inter­ac­tion design for hybrid games. That week we also dis­cussed next ver­sions of Beesten­bende with the Utrecht Uni­ver­si­ty Muse­um. We received this paper from a game […]

Week 182

On Mon­day Alper got good news about our sub­mis­sion to the gam­i­fi­ca­tion research net­work work­shop at CHI. Our posi­tion paper was accept­ed, which means we’ll be there to con­tribute to the dis­cus­sion. Alper has promised me he’ll talk a bit more about our sub­mis­sion here soon. Mean­while that same day, I spent some time fine […]

Week 181

Such a full stack last week that I’m a bit unsure what to start with. Lots of new busi­ness being dis­cussed too vague­ly to write about, but we can say 2013 is off to a good start. Though Berlin is still rather cold: Kars spent a large part of the week prepar­ing the HIRAME playtest […]

Week 177

Kars said it was my turn to write wee­knotes, so here I am. I’ll be tak­ing them up more reg­u­lar­ly from now on. At the start of the week we put up a notice about open­ings for res­i­dents at our Utrecht stu­dio. If you’re inter­est­ed in shar­ing the space, ideas and cof­fee, feel wel­come to […]

Week 174

The penul­ti­mate work­week of the year turned out rather packed with work on two new projects—the afore­men­tioned HIRAME and now also KAIGARA, for which con­tracts were signed mid­way through the week. KAIGARA is game con­cept devel­op­ment for a multi­na­tion­al company—our biggest client to date in fact, so I am quite pleased. I’ll wait with shar­ing […]

Week 173

Last week Alper vis­it­ed Moscow to par­tic­i­pate in Urban Forum. He tells me he talked about “data and gen­er­a­tiv­i­ty as a prac­tice for inno­v­a­tive cities.” Mean­while I sol­diered on in the Utrecht stu­dio with half a jeal­ous eye on his Insta­gram feed. On Mon­day I act­ed as sound­ing board for Zineb and Chris. As men­tioned […]

Week 172

Woah, almost fell off the horse there—it’s Wednes­day and I haven’t writ­ten up last weeks notes yet. So real quick, let me tell you what hap­pened. Most notably, I fin­ished writ­ing my Game­ful World chap­ter. I then added ref­er­ences and col­lect­ed images. After one last proof­read I sent it to the edi­tors one day short […]

Week 170

So anoth­er week has passed. It dawned on me this week­end that for me, there are four more work­ing weeks left in the year. That’s a bit of a shock, but then work will just con­tin­ue on hap­pen­ing in 2013, so it’s odd near­ing the end of the year still feels like a thing. Any­way. […]

Week 169

Last week start­ed out with a vis­it to the Utrecht Med­ical Cen­tre to dis­cuss a pos­si­ble new project. I was intro­duced to this by my younger broth­er Ties, who is one third of the infa­mous Pony Design Club, a graph­ic design stu­dio and also of Dufarge, whose appar­el I reg­u­lar­ly sport. Any­way, the project is […]

Week 166–167

I was away on hol­i­day the pre­vi­ous week, so these notes on the week pri­or to that are a bit late. I’ll keep it short so we can get back into the rhythm of things. Most of the week my time went into admin­is­tra­tive things, busi­ness devel­op­ment and some legal stuff. Just basi­cal­ly me wear­ing […]
