32 Productivity tips

32 Productivity Tips From The World’s Top Designers by John Brownlee

Even if you’re working your dream job, staying productive can be tough. That’s why designers are such productivity experts.

Project Seen

Read The NSA Of Fonts Censors You In Real-Time by John Brownlee

_______

Project Seen is a new typeface that automatically crosses out words on the NSA’s watch list, it’s spooky. The point of the Seen font is to get people thinking about the privacy implications of what they are writing, as they are writing.

You can try it online and download the font here.

Check my sentence tryout!

It’s out! Ello iOS app!

It’s out! Ello iOS app by Ello.

_______

I have been beta testing – and I can assure you – it’s a beautiful app. The minimalist interface makes visuals pop and since large format, .gifs are welcomed, video + music embedding – you can see (and hear) a stream of non-end eye candy.

_______

Check the Discovery panel to extend your network, either by inviting others to join or scrolling the suggested users.

_______

Choose how you want to read who you follow between single post feed (Friends) or grid feed (Noise).

_______

Notifications panel is where you can see who has interacted with your content. Hit a link or visual to comment.

Hit an avatar will take you to user profile.

_______

Some of the desktops functionalities will be ported soon – and it’s going to be even more awesome. If you are a creative or a geek – and would like to be part of an ad-free – no data collection platform (ever!!!)..

Ello is right for you!

There is no equivalent social platform for the conversations + interactions I have every day. People are nice. Really, really nice.

And brilliant as to depth of articles posted and comments passed.

And funny too.

Follow me @cgwarex. I also curate the @ellodesign community.

See ya there!

Curiosity is essential

3 Ways embracing curiosity can change your life by Warren Berger

_______

Penchant for wondering and questioning has consistently led him to new ideas and fresh opportunities, while also helping him to overcome fears, broaden his thinking, and become a better manager of others.

The most successful ones to be people of wide-ranging curiosity who also knew when and how to narrow their focus, channeling their curiosity in a particularly promising direction.

1. Use curiosity to broaden your horizons and discover new possibilities.
2. Use curiosity as a self-motivating force.
3. Use curiosity to inspire and lead others.

_______

I am a ‘why’ person – to the point of annoyance. If something catches my attention – I will research till I understand – make sense of it – validate or infirm previous assumptions or just defeat my ignorance.

I never take anything I think for granted – I am always ready to revisit previous opinions. As a mentor once said: ‘You are ignorant, till you ask the question.’

Curiosity is essential to creativity.

Being imaginative??

How to build your imagination by Tanner Christensen

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
— Albert Einstein

_______

A crucial aspect of creative thinking is the capacity to imagine.

What fuels imagination is everything we already know.

Build knowledge and gain new understandings of the world.

Remain powerfully curious about that knowledge.

Imagining the improbable.

Friday is for Art / #2

Friday is for Art / #2

_______

I do abstract art. Be it painting, digital media using generative design and/or photo apps manipulations as well as glitch art.

Altho may look like I am just playing – it is in fact, demanding, pushing my limits and exhilerating creative work.
