Things done by wonderful people. See for yourself.

These days, it’s hard to write positive messages while seeing all the disastrous events happening right outside of our doors. Every time I open Facebook, I close it with goose bumps all over my body. Nevertheless, there is a lot of great stuff happening too, and it’s especially my friends who are doing marvellous, inspiring projects that I would love to introduce to you today. To briefly explain the situation: after a month of not publishing any newsletters, I still cannot bring myself to writing anything but the articles I am paid to write or the monthly wrap-ups I publish to reflect on the accomplished work of the previous month. But that also calls for a small step. And so here is mine: a selection of projects of the people I admire for the work they do. I hope you enjoy their work as much as I do:

Anne is currently working on launching a coding school, Refugees on Rails, that will help refugees find jobs in an industry where there aren’t enough workers to take on these tasks. 

Talia’s beautiful jewellery that was produced in collaboration with J. & L. Lobmeyr is now available for sale. Also, here are her thoughts on the current refugee situation from a designer’s perspective. Worth a read.

Diana is not one to complain, and after Google published their new logo that was praised but also criticised, she tried to come up with a better solution herself.

Noah’s opening a comedy café in Berlin and is currently running a Kickstarter campaign. Also, spot my favourite joke about capitalism!

Max and Tom have produced a stunningly beautiful video to capture the genius behind Magdas Hotel.

Diana became the editor of the Beach to Bay magazine, which is now available on Issuu.

Owen has this most incredible newsletter that summarizes everything that’s going on in the tech scene so that you no longer have to visit all the tech blogs to keep up with the industry.

What’s a project you would like to bring to everyone’s attention? 

I look forward to reading about some goodness in the world and thank you for sharing. Please do!
