HOLLA 4: “High Tech Hide and Seek”

facebook

Last Wednesday we organised our seasonal HOLLA event! The theme was “High Tech Hide and Seek”, where we invited three speakers to tell their story on how we are becoming technology.

What you’ve missed? A lot of great stories on tech, like the one from Kees Plattel, who is a creative technologist and was one of the first to people place an RFID chip under his skin. He checked in with us and shared his vision on where technology can take us.

Gillian from the popular lifestyle blog Techgirl.nl also joined our session. As Tech can definitely be in heels, she proved this with her top 5 of latest tech trends in fashion.

And Galit Ariel who just published her AR book “Augmenting Alice”. She is a renowned speaker on Augmented Reality and recently hosted a talk at the SXSW festival for the Dutch Innovation Platform.

SuperHeroes is growing rapidly so to keep up with all this awesomeness here’s a quick Q&A of our new team members!

 

Yulia – digital strategist

 

What is your personal mission?
To just be a good person – to people, animals, and the planet. I just learned that there are only around 1800 pandas left on the planet! 1800! It makes me really sad.

 

What emoji do you relate to the most and why?
All types of cute animals. I often associate myself and other people with them.
Here is my gang: 🐻 🐼 🐨 🐯 🦁

 

Mandy S. – client hero

 

What are your superpowers?
I can sneeze with my eyes open.

 

What’s on your Spotify playlist?
Woezel & Pip greatest hits

 

Malin – junior strategist

 

What is your personal mission?
To make the world a little bit more glittery. Then retire and become a full-time philosopher.

 

What IG profile would you recommend to follow and why?
@knashofficial: Six kickass Swedish girls playing partypunk and questionning norms.
 
Mandy H. – client hero

 

If your batmobile should be sponsored by one brand which one would it be and why?
The Mandarin Hotel Group’s Cake Shop, because their Rose Petal jam is to die for! Smear it on a warm, natural scone with clotted cream (yuuum..)

 

What are your superpowers?
Reading micro expressions because it is not possible to hide them ;) (they are 1/5 of a second!)

 

Long – graphic designer

 

What IG profile would you recommend to follow and why?
@Fruit_stickers, they just keep doing a very tiny simple thing, but everyone will find their own joys when they look at this profile.

 

What emoji do you relate to the most and why?

😂   It’s difficult to express, but it always happens: cry and laugh at the same time.

Seeing your ex is never easy, and especially not when you’re starring in season 2 of the immensely popular Ex On The Beach – Double Dutch edition! For MTV EMEA we created a short promovideo and key visual, featuring the full cast.

 

Photographer of this campaign was Mark Engelen.

Refugee Emojis in Stedelijk Museum

We’re  honoured to announce that the Refugee Emojis that we have created for UNHCR and Doctors without Borders have been selected for a special exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum, the famous Amsterdam museum for modern art.

The exhibition is called SOLUTION OR UTOPIA? DESIGN FOR REFUGEES. It presents almost 50 practical design solutions to the situations faced by refugees. From clothing that can double as a tent, to improved signage in a refugee camp, and from linkable plastic floor sections for temporary shelters to a digital service that helps refugees navigate their new environment. A number of items have also been designed by refugees, like the Refugee Flag for the Olympic team (by Syrian Yara Said).

The exhibition is open from 20 May to 3 Sep 2017. For more info visit the website of the Stedelijk Museum.
