Small is the new big

Big business




Small business

Small business has always been big. Just not especially visible.



Small is the new big
Doc Searls, the celebrated co-author of Cluetrain Manifesto published a detailed narrative of how business is done within his intimate surrounding.

You probably can easily recall very similar stories from the business conduct in your own immediate surrounding. Of how you help each other out in your community and family. We are following a path previous generations have been following until BIG came along. The path of family businesses, that of craftmanship.

None of them want to grow their businesses any larger than they need to be.

Searls also has impressive statistics to show. “Firms with fewer than 100 employees have the largest share of small business employment.”

Luck favors the bold. That’s what it comes down to.

A pointer to Fascism’s an Epidemic. What’s the cure?

June 18th, 2016 Comments off


This is NOT a Drill!

Your everyday behavior contributes to the cure

Fascism’s an Epidemic
Now is the time to make your social media activities pay of:

  • Ignore anti democratic press reports. Refrain from sharing articles on uproar about anti democratic suspects.
  • Social media is here to exploit your last sanctuary: Your cognitive surplus.

  • Share instead write ups on politicians and family businesses triumphing among big businesses.
  • Reward media reports on big business serving social goodness.
  • Enjoy and share your discoveries of businesses and activities serving social goodness.
  • Don’t be mad at Bernie Sanders.
  • Determine how your business supports democratic values and brag about it.
  • Make good use of your cognitive surplus with smart, fun sharing.
  • Know your name and keep your head up.
  • Make use of strategic consume. Support your trusted local neighbourhood shops.
  • Show your support for open source technology and other large scale movements that make tools available to mid- and small size businesses. There plenty out there!

This’ll look nice when its framed

April 20th, 2016 Comments off





Unlike Banksy’s work, which can be discovered elsewhere on urban walls and objects, web content always gets displayed within the frame of a physical device. Be it your cell phone, your tablet or your desktop monitor.

Web designers have come to accept that adding frames to their website design is a notorious redundant and silly act. Digital content by default lives on displays framed by physical devices.

Even with frames removed from site design, navigation bars, header background images and boxed elements now contribute to cluttered web design.



Should you, as a designer want to do some good, try focus on both content and its context. Never one without the other. Add white space, and match the brand’s character and behavior with a distinctive, fitting webfont. Concentrate more on what helps reflect the brand’s opinion. Opinionate with fitting fonts.

“Big problems don’t require big solutions”

Didgeridoo » Psicodália



Spring fashion 2016



With their spring tv ad series for Germany’s largest mail order business Otto, Berlin agency Heimat demonstrates, how big problems don’t require big solutions.

The unobtrusive sound of the Australian bamboo instrument, with the fun name didgeridoo, transforms prejudice of a dusty mail catalogue firm into the conviction, of a fashion brand, that has adapted to the requirements of the early 21. century and is presumed trendy, fun and a bit mischievous.

HVW8 Gallery and Bernie Sanders 2016 have united, kicking off the traveling exhibit in Los Angeles (views photos), then Austin earlier this year, “The Art of a Political Revolution” is a touring exhibition featuring both artists and musicians seeking to inspire change throughout the nation.

Artists for Bernie Sanders

On a side note, I witnessed user created content work beautifully to the benefit of The Decemberists and their followers at an early stage of their web presence. A great commercial use was demonstrated by Burberry’s “The Art of the Trench”.
