This is such a sweet story about “people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor.”

Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation) award winning author/ illustrator William Joyce and Co-director Brandon Oldenburg present a new narrative experience that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals. “Morris Lessmore” is old fashioned and cutting edge at the same time.

I recently visited the 2011 Master’s show at the University of Dundee, where I am about to embark on my own journey by pursuing a Master’s in Design Ethnography…

Many of the student work was impressive, but this video by Weerawat Mungkung caught my eye. I love that this animation is reminiscent of 2D visuals but brought to live using 3D animation and modern technology. This would make a really great kids show, no?

Check it out on Vimeo HERE!

The project as described by the artist:
“Although a considerable number of modern animated films are created using 3D technique, I found that the illustrations and paper engineering in children books can provide a different type of appeal. Thus, I have combined these techniques to generate a creative and unconventional animation that could result in an interesting experience for the viewer.”

I love this product and I love Jane’s mission. She is from Ireland and was studying product design at RCA London when she had an idea: “I don’t want to buy new stuff all the time. I want to hack the stuff I already have so it works better for me.”

In Jane’s words: This is “sugru and is a little bit brilliant. You should really watch the video.”

Go on, watch the video and read more about Sugru HERE!


I saw this video floating around the interwebs today and it looks incredibly inspiring….how far is Wales from Dundee……?

This is how David & Clare Hieatt, Co-founders of The Do Lectures, describe the event:

“The idea is a simple one— that people who Do things can inspire the rest of us to go and Do things, too. So each year we invite a set of people down here to come and tell us what they Do. They can be small Do’s or big Do’s or just extraordinary Do’s. But when you listen to their stories, they light a fire in your belly to go and Do your thing, your passion, the thing that sits in the back of your head each day, just waiting, and waiting for you to follow your heart.

To go find your cause to fight, your company to start, your invention to invent, your book to write, your mountain to climb. The one thing the Doers of the world Do, apart from Do amazing things, is to inspire the rest of us to go and Do amazing things too. They are fire-starters.”

“I never would have thought of that. How do they even come up with that? It’s genius!”

Derek Sivers talks about the way our brain makes us think that our ideas are not worth sharing because they seem “so obvious” yet many of these ideas are completely new and unique to others…
