Play time!

Something interesting and exciting to share:

A concept I've done for an internal design provocation / project made it's first prototypical foray out into the world last night. It took a ride with passengers on a Northbound Caltrain, thanks to a couple of fellow designers with more cohones than me: Ted Howes and Adam Vollmer.

The design project is challenging ourselves to create concepts around the subject of time. This particular concept began with a question: What would happen if we gave away a thousand hours of play, ten minutes at a time?

As Adam tells it, the experiment / prototype / experience left some people confused and some people delighted. Apparently, Adam and Ted even got some cookies out of the deal!

The story's made it onto Tim Brown's Design Thinking blog, and hopefully there will be more to tell in the weeks to come!

Be on the lookout for a roll of orange tickets, with a little bit of timely magic in them. In the meantime, if you're feeling stressed, consider this a gift of 10 minutes to drop your load and go play.
