    Back in the Burg


    I’ve been back in the Burg for the last 10 days working from Reclaim’s HQ on a range of stuff. As a result the bava has been a bit quiet given the push to get as much done as possible in a relatively short time frame. I’ve been able to …

    The World is Ending and Here’s How I’ve Prepared


    The apocalypse. Everyone’s heard of it. We’ve feared it’s arrival. And now… it’s here.

    When I was about fourteen-years-old, I was first introduced to what apocalyptic life might be like when I watched Shaun of the Dead (2004) with a few of my family friends. Of course this movie is …

    Kaleidoscope wanted to spend the afternoon outside with her friends. Shortly after she left her house, rain clouds rolled in from the distance and it started to rain. All her friends were sad and were about to head home. But Kaleidoscope is not one to be defeated easily. She had …

    America Runs on Ice


    I love coffee, but I really love iced coffee.  Every morning, regardless of the temperature, I grab an iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts. That’s why my mind immediately went to Dunkin’ when I stumbled upon the Consumer Mashup assignment. This assignment required me to redesign a company’s logo by …

    Daily Creates (29-30)

    Week Eleven: Real Life Reflection


    I absolutely love video editing so this week has been fantastic. The only challenge has been with time management. I’m a bit of a perfectionist… if I have to create something, I want to at least feel proud of it, and so it takes time getting my videos to a …
