HUMAN BY WONDERLAND #30
A newsletter about design and creativity, and how they contribute to a better world.
Hello everyone, and welcome to our 30th edition of HUMAN. We’re so excited to have had you along with us on this journey, and a special thank you to everyone who has been with us since Edition #001.
For you today, we’ve got:
An insight into our workshop process
A review of 2022 from the perspective of Wonderland
Our usual internet round-up, from coffee machines to 3D-printed cars
Scenes from the past: portable music in NYC before the iPod
Hey Wonderland: How do you run a branding workshop?
As with any branding or design studio, our workshop process differs from project to project and client to client, however, the basic structure remains the same, and we’ve provided an overview of what it looks like, and how we apply it at Wonderland.
Looking forward to 2023
As this is our final edition of HUMAN for 2022, we wanted to say a few short words on the year that was. Throughout 2022, we’ve finalised and relaunched our SDD platform, rebranded Wonderland, and worked with over fifteen clients across sectors including sprits, finance, supply chain management, and future tech. We’ve partnered with freelancers for copywriting, development, 3D modelling and illustration, presented at Dutch Design Week, moved into our new office, and finalised our B Corp application. And we’ve released our 30th edition of HUMAN, growing our subscriber base by 100% along the way. All in all, it’s been an enormous year.
And, just as 2022 has been big for us we’re sure the same has been the case for our readers wherever they’re receiving HUMAN from. So, as we close out the year, and look forward to 2023, we wanted to round out this edition with a very merry Christmas, and a happy new year to you all.
We look forward to seeing you in 2023.

It’s hard to imagine a life without music at our fingertips. From the casset player to the walkman to the iPod and now the smartphone - not to mention Bluetooth speakers - music has been within easy reach for decades now. With the annual Spotify Wrapped stories making their way around the social world, we wanted to take a moment and appreciate a world when music was slightly less accessible, namely New York City in the 70s and 80s. Enjoy.
