1. Interested in cultural and creative industries? kreativORTungen explores what’s happening (GERMAN)

    After the Housing Forum in Budapest earlier this month I headed straight to Nuremberg to work with project leader Linn Quante on “kreativORTungen”, the second (and this time moving) conference on the cultural and creative industries.

    More on that in German:

    Wie möchtest Du in Zukunft leben und arbeiten? kreativORTungen lädt Künstler, Kultur- und Kreativschaffende zu einem zweitägigen Austausch über die zukünftige Gestaltung ihres Tätigkeitsfeldes ein. Das Symposium und die anschließende städteübergreifende Moving Conference bieten vertiefende und praxisbezogene Einblicke in den aktuellen Diskurs zur Kultur- und Kreativwirtschaft. Thematisiert werden die vernetzten Arbeits- und Lebensentwürfe von Freelancern und kleinen Unternehmen in diesem Sektor. Neue Formen, Strukturen und Orte des Arbeitens und der Organisierung in der Kultur- und Kreativwirtschaft werden diskutiert. Stets im Blickfeld ist dabei die Entwicklung von Positionen, Ideen und Utopien für die Zukunft dieses Arbeitsfeldes.

    Some visual documentation:

    We also had a TV team accompanying us:

  2. Data Driven Journalism conference in Amsterdam - visualizations are now scanned and online #ddj #ejc

    I was invited by the Europen Journalism Centre to visualize a conference they were hosting in Amsterdam.
    Data Driven Journalism is still quite a young project, and the EJC has managed to gather a range of really interesting speakers from academia, newsroom and corporate world.
    The day was divided into four parts, with two to five ten minute talks in each session. When you browse through the pictures you’ll see the headlines, participants and topics of the talks. 
    I’ll be back in Amsterdam in September working with EJC at Picnic which I’m very much looking forward to. That session will be about the future of journalism. And I’ll draw the masterplan of how to save journalism ;)

    For those interested in data, there’s a meetup in Berlin next Wednesday organized by Georgi Kobilarov. I’ll be attending and will also bring the visualizations from the Amsterdam conference. If you fancy a chat, come and say hi. As for the digital versions - have a look at my flickr or the presentations I uploaded on ScribdIssuu and Slideshare and feel free to share them.

    "Opening up content and data produced by public bodies will enable new forms of reportage as well as a new generation of services enabling the public to participate in the news making process. New tools to analyse, represent, deliver and give context to public data are beginning to revolutionise the way we understand large and complex issues, from Hans Rosling’s analysis of flu statistics, to the Guardian MP expenses crowdsourcing tool, and to the Afghanistan Election Data project. An ecosystem of open data that anyone can reuse or contribute to will be critical for a new generation of data driven journalism to flourish"

  3. First time trying digital notetaking with Scribbles - Open Design meeting @atebits

    Today we had a meeting about open design at Betahaus. I usually draw with pens and paper, but wanted to try going digital for quite a while. I just hadn’t found a tool that suited my purposes. Thanks to Arne I discovered Scribbles.
    Scribbles works really well for, well, scribbling and quick notetaking. It’s easy to switch between brushed and colours (Photoshop is painful when it comes to that). High resolution, saving to all kinds of formats and the “infinite canvas” which allows you to draw in all directions spontaneously (which is quite important when you do graphic recording) makes it a tool I’ll definitely spend 20$ for. 

    There’s also a free version, if you wanna give it a try. The full version has of course a couple of more features.
    And if you’re in Berlin and interested in Open Design you’re more than welcome to join us next week Tuesday (17th) at 19.30 at Studio 70 on Kottbusser Damm 70.

  5. Scanned, sealed, delivered, they’re yours :) Last night’s #viznotes from #tedxkreuzberg at @betahaus


  6. Vizthink Innovation :::::> Tweetnotes

    I like viznotes, I think they’re an excellent solution in between doodling and doing murals. Will try that out at the next conference where I’ll do graphic recording. This example has a bit different because it has a specific purpose. You can find out more below the pictures.









    A most interesting project came through Somnio, an Austin-based sales and marketing company that was hired by HP to support a sales training. Somnio specializes in unique sales and marketing solutions, so their idea was that BrightSpot create twitpics – pictures that could be periodically tweeted to the participants of a sales training to (1) keep them interested, (2) reinforce the content, and (3) use an empathetic Twitter persona to relate to the experience that many of the participants were probably having. Somnio wanted a visual narrative that reflected the (probable) emotional ride of the employees and they wanted it to look like handwritten notes coming out of someone’s notebook. So Erik Kuntz, BrightSpot’s principal illustrator, took on that project and did, as always, a superb job. (And consequently, created a new Brightspot offering – TWEETNOTES.) Did I just invent a new word? Doubtful. But I love the output.
