This Design Team is Using Legos, Stickers, and Playing Cards to Demystify Blockchain

What the Block received a Notable Design Education Initiative Award in the 2019 Core77 Design Awards.It's not that designers Cyrus Clarke and John Ferreira were necessarily sick and tired of the inundation of requests they'd been receiving to explain what the heck Blockchain is.

Dead Musicians Are Touring As Holograms (Really)

“Was it really okay, I wondered, to let holograms stand in for once-vital, important artists and carry out new performances? Was this an inevitable development in the interweaving of high tech and art — or did it possibly speak to something darker about our 21st-century morals and our endless quest to be entertained? What did this phenomenon say about, well, us?” – Washington Post

How Happiness Got To Be So Much Work

“Happiness is in many ways the marketing breakthrough of the past decade, with self-care and anti-stress products now rounding out the bestseller list on Amazon (think of ‘gravity blankets’, ‘de-stressing’ adult colouring books and fidget spinners), where they nestle alongside chart-topping tomes by ‘happiness bloggers’.
