Hyper Island is a school based in Sweden renowned for producing the most coveted digital talent in the ad industry. Students are taught that there are no boundaries when it comes to digital marketing. There are “no teachers or tests. No homework gets set, and no schoolbooks are needed. Instead, people who come to Hyper Island learn by doing. They learn about themselves, about how to work with others in teams, and about how to make amazing things happen.”
The above video is brilliantly mastered, with awesome music to match. I think Robin will love NYC.
This makes me want to go back to school.
The Dapper Dude shares wisdom on everything from Fashion, Imbibing, Dining and Design - but this time - for the fashionable dude. It’s one of the only blogs I have come across for guys that evokes that childhood wish I once had:
"I wish I was a boy!"
From his ABOUT section:
"The Dapper Dude is a beer drinking, burger eating, sports watching frat guy. He likes his coffee black, his blue jeans blue and his Scotch neat. He has spent most of his professional life working in the men’s clothing and design industry for companies like GQ, Esquire, Ralph Lauren, Jack Spade and New York Spaces. He’s not a writer, he’s not a designer and he’s not an artist. He’s just a dude and this is his blog."

Most of the camera functions live in the lens, while the camera body is left to function as a wireless display and control panel.
From Ferris Wheels to Carousels // The Work of Alicia Bock
This post is so long overdue. I fell in love with Alicia’s work back in 2004. I’ve been following her photographic journeys through her blog, her Etsy shop and her general Web site.

Bock pushes us into a flirty, dream-like, and whimsical world. I love the play on light, color and focus. The palettes she plays with are playful and soothing. Her work is so easily placed together with other pieces of hers, or mixed-matched with other kinds of art work. It’s simply lovely. My own collection of hers is prominently placed in my living room:
I have reoccurring dreams with ferris wheels in them, so when I see her representation of these giant, slow-moving attractions, my mind slips into slow-motion, and I stare.
