Designing and living Experiences

Flowers from the Keukenhof Park April 20, 2009

From my resent visit to Amsterdam, because was spring and because I wanted to see as much as I could, I went  to the Keukenhof Park, also known as the Garden of Europe. The experience is just amazing, being surrounded of nature and the beautiful of the colours is just incredible.

As I have found that I like to paint flowers I decided to take as many photos as possible, for one reason to study the shapes of the flowers and for another more inspiring one is to keep a record of the millions of combinations that nature make with colours. It’s just impressive how works so well together in the proper proportion colours. Having these examples of colours hopefully will help me as an inspiration when I’m painting or new examples of how to mix colours when I need for more important reasons. By the end of the day I got hundreds of photos, and I want to share with you.

If you haven’t been bore yet, here it is the second part:

 

The Twitter event directory for the Events Industry April 16, 2009

Eventstweet

Eventstweets (www.eventweeps.com) is the first directory for Twitter users that its business are related to the Events Industry.

The directory was launched in an event at the London Sea Aquarium last Tuesday April 14th, which only people who have a Twitter acount could attend.

The organisers and co-founders of this amazing idea were Peter Kerwood (@pkerwood) head of Marketing of Merlin Events and Mike Fletcher, events journalist Mike Fletcher (@MikeFletch) and what they are looking for is to help the search for other twitters to find out in the Twitter world what is happening in the Events Industry. For pictures of the event take a look here by Henry Stuart (@henrystuart).

I think is fantastic, I have been using Twitter (@magdanieto) for the last couple of months, and have found it very useful to keep updated and talk to people that in real life wouldn’t be that easy. Even that the conversations are not that long, helps to get  an easy approach to everyone who is there.
