Selfless Selfie: Our collaboration with WeBandits

We´re super happy to finally have a product on the market because people love it and we love to make people happy.

Which is why when Sophie Pollack, from our number one favourite store We Bandits, asked us if we wanted to donate some JellySeries for the Falter Christmas charity tombola campaign we were over the moon. Finally our designs could actually be used for social good by raising money for the Wiener Integrationshaus

The Wiener Integrationshaus is the biggest NGO that supports asylum seekers and immigrants arriving to and living in Vienna. By participating in the raffle your donation will go to support psychological care for child refugees as well as German-speaking courses for asylum seekers.

You can donate starting 10€ here , which will buy you one raffle. But it´s for charity so you won´t mind spending much much more, since the more generous you are the more raffle tickets you have and so the bigger the chance you have at winning, but also and more importantly the more opportunities you are encouraging for a more seamless integration into this sometimes bitter-cold and often unfriendly and distant place called Vienna. Now...

Who doesn´t love to take a colourful selfless selfie



Bienvenue, Catalina!

The studio has been having a crazy fun challenging time this year- whipping up application concepts for unprecedented technology, designing and prototyping and working towards launch deadlines, travelling a LOT (yay!) to promote, network, connect, converse, debate, learn, drink and dine and let people play with the things we create.

There´s been a steady growth of interest for the work of the studio and so it was time to do the previously unthinkable - delegate some serious work to someone talented; add some non-designer into the team for the long-run; someone who´s playground is a business canvas instead of a sketching dialogue; but most importantly someone who gets design but speaks market.

In short, a sales and marketing connoisseur. 

Meet the wonderful Catalina Scalbert, fresh off the plane from the beating heart of the textiles industry in Istanbul with a detour designer work-over in Beirut after finishing her studies in her homeland France, and with enough energy and sense of adventure to be an obvious keeper from the word go. 

If you have any sales inquiries be sure to contact Catalina!



Talia Radford hosts an ideation workshop during Fast Company´s Innovation by Design Conference

Thanks to Noah Robinschon, executive editor of Fast Company, for tweeting this! During yesterday´s Fast Company conference, Talia was invited to host one of the tables during lunch for selected guests. Obviously she got the post-it notes out and started an ideation session! For us, it´s all about knowledge transfer and a mutual interest in sharing creative processes and food-for-thought.

If you´re interested in one of our ideation sessions to help you bring your projects forward, get in touch!




Innovation by Design Conference and Awards

After a full two days of Fast Company´s workshops, lectures and podium discussions, last night we celebrated the Innovation by Design Awards. 

Even though our KissCam did not win in it´s Experimental Category, we´re super happy for the guys from MIT´s Tangible Media Groups InForm project for a well-deserved win, and super inspired to have spent the whole evening together excited about each other´s projects and generally interacting with some of the most creative minds in the industry.

Thanks so much to Fast Company for their incredible efforts to set-up a tip-top conference. I´m definately going to put it on my calendar for next year, and I urge you to do the same.

Two lovely and unforgettable details about last night: finding out that John Maeda was part of the Jury for our category; and finally reuniting and celebrating with former taliaYstudio team member Kickie Chudikova, who worked on the KissCam project before moving to her dream city of NYC. #almostthemost #doubletrouble fever was all around. <3



Kisscam shortlisted for Fast Company´s Innovation by Design Award 2015

We´re super stoked that our KissCam is a finalist in the prestigious Experimental Category of this year´s Innovation By Design Awards, shortlisted among the likes of Google X, MIT´s Tangible Media Group, BeAnotherLab and SeymourPowell!

We´re so excited, that Talia be travelling out to NYC in October to attend the workshops, lectures and podium discussions set up as a conference around the awards ceremony by Fast Company. We´re also looking forward to the no doubt delicious food and colourful drinks on offer, but mostly for the surely hyper-talented crowd attending, and of course a few days of New York culture and playing tourist on the High Line.

See you there!
