HUMAN BY WONDERLAND #28
A newsletter about design and creativity, and how they contribute to a better world.
Hello, and welcome to HUMAN, Edition #28
For you today, we’ve got:
Words from our three newest Wonderlanders, Ruth, Hala, and Zuza
Our usual internet collection, from distraction dimmers to IKEA turntables.
The dynamic artwork of Taiwanese artist Han Hsu-Tung
Wonderland is growing, and in the last few months, we’ve had three new faces join the team: Ruth Walsh (IR), Hala Al-Sadi (YE), and Zuza Loch (PO). Coming from a variety of countries and backgrounds, all three of them have brought their own brands of creative genius to the Wonderland team, and further internationalised us. We asked them to all write a few words about their experience so far for our readers.
The State of Sustainable Digital Design report is available for download.
As part of our Sustainable Digital Design journey, our team has been working to better share our findings with the world, from the interview we conduct to our own research to better understand the topic.
Our first report, The State of Sustainable Digital Design identifies the core factors that lead to digital creative industries having a larger impact on the environment than might be thought. Providing an overview of current activities in the creative industries, and action points for individuals, studios, and/or organisation, the report aims to make their digital practices throughout the community more conscious and considered.
