Web Summit 2014

Posted on by Little Nice Things

Was truly an honour to exhibit in the Alpha Program and speak on the People's Stage.
Fun and inspiring 3 days. Too short to meet personally 22 000 people in Dublin.

The future looked a little closer. 

From smart homes to smart watches, from wearables to Internet of Things, from Virtual Reality to tasty food made by plants.
We saw it all.

From Hackers to Founders, CEO’s to volunteers.
Startups, investors and journalists following and running away from each other.
Was a real game played with business cards.

We were inspired by ideas that promote a collaborative society and especially economy.

Where the question most heard was: How do you monetize?
And the question less heard: How do you humanize?

Slow Wifi resulted in fast serendipity. Yes, real human interaction.

We had great celebrities like Bono, Tony Hawk and the massively photographed Eva Longoria.
But we also had colourful sheeps.

Lisbon’s Codacy won the Coca-Cola Pitch Competition.
But we all preferred to drink coffee or Guiness.

All the startups seem to have a common goal:
Facilitate people’s lives, ( and meet some nice investors on the way ).

Here, to the brightest minds of our planet.
The innovators.

OFFF Show us your type Barcelona 2013

Posted on by Little Nice Things

This poster was hand-crafted.

It reads: " OFFF Show us your type Barcelona 2013"

This poster was made in collaboration with Elise Luttik for "Show us your type" Exhibition in OFFF Barcelona 2013 and aims to create awareness and celebrate the relevance of this beautiful type which is a essential way of communication for those speakless people.

SHOW US YOUR TYPE is a project about type and cities, which provides a creative platform for designers to share their talents and explore cities from a different perspective.

Awards vs Rewards

Posted on by Little Nice Things

It's that time of the year. A time for reflection.
Awards or Rewards, what matters most?

Awards are made of heavy, shiny metals.
Rewards are made of uplifting feelings.
 
Awards come from shortlists.
Rewards come from wishlists.
 
Awards call us to a stage, in front of an industry audience.
Rewards bring us back to reality, in front of an authentic audience.
 
Awards help business.
Rewards help society.
 
Awards make us famous.
Rewards make us human.
 
Awards foster competition.
Rewards create good karma.
 
While awards are granted, rewards are ours to seize. Let’s get out there and make something meaningful. The universe would appreciate it, and so will our soul.
