Gamification of Business Cards

Gamification of Business Cards

Magicians and illusionists often say. "Pick a card" before having you select a card from a deck to perform a trick. I use this same phrase to start the business card exchange. It creates a sense of wonder and magic through words, and is the begin of this Businiss Card Game.

The Lovie Award Winners Announced

Screen Shot 2012-10-16 at 3.17.47 PM

A couple of weeks ago I was spending 3-5 hours daily for a week and a half judging for The Lovie Awards. I was judging Video, Montage, Game DEsign and a couple of other subjects like best web personality. It was a lot of work going through all the entries. Some were absolute crap, but others were exceptional. Overall I would say the quality was more towards the good than towards the ugly. And it's all EUROPE!!! At least that's what the Lovie's say. There is an amazing amount of creative talent, design, creativity and production Europe has to offer. The Lovie Awards really show the best of what Europe has to offer. If you have some time to kill and are tired of 9gag or I-am-bored, hop on over and have a look at the winners. Let me know if you think they should have won or not. The Lovie Awards.

Viva La Givolution!

For the past few months I've been working at INDIE. One of the projects I've been working on is the new campaign for Ben & Jerry's. The site is the first "Give It Forward Auction" site. This is better than Freecycle.org because of the wonderful stories that happen.

It starts with 100 ice creams from Ben & Jerry. People bid on them. So far there are bids like theater tickets, foot massages, jackets and more. Those people get an ice cream and then others can bid on those items. For instance guitar lessons, etc. The winning bids then become the next in the chain of giving forward. Or what we like to call Giving Chains. If you are in Holland (it is in dutch only I'm afraid) you could try it out for yourself. Trust me there are a lot of very cool things that are going to be planned for this campaign so keep watching here. It's gonna be a lot of fun! And I can't imagine a better company than Ben and Jerry's to do it with. a real socially conscious company. Viva La givolution!!!
