Colors as emotional architecture building blocks

Getting a sudden craving for certain food is a widely recognised feeling…We eat to fuel our bodies, and we die without food, our bodies collapse. What is less researched is how we “fuel our minds” and more specifically how we fuel our system with visual sensory stimuli. In this blog post I’m taking a closer […]

The Internet of Skills

I just watched the refreshing TED group talk on the notion of an Interspecies Internet featuring a hero of mine, Neil Gerschenfeld of MIT’s Center of Bits & Atoms, alongside animal cognition expert Diana Reiss, brilliant network guru and evangelist Vint Cerf and the more unlikely “geek band” member musician Peter Gabriel.

A recent share onto a Brazilian DIY Facebook page resulted in the picture being shared an […]

Being an avid fan of D.I.Y culture (and pairing it with a a collaborative Open Source ethos) I’m happy to be featured and quoted in an article today with the headline “D.I.Y’ers are the new innovators”. The article, featured in Swedish daily Expressen, is based on a pressrelease I wrote on behalf of Stockholm Makerspace […]

Pizza wisdom

Eating pizza & making friends

We’re all (well, most of us anyway) on the quest of new relationships. Not necessarily relationships of the romantic kind, but of friends, people we can relate to and who hopefully on some level, relate back to us. In marketing, my line of work and interest, relationships in focus are those to potential new customers, […]
