Artist Creates Paper Doll App | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

Artist Mary Engelbreit has teamed up with the app developer Auryn to create a new app featuring her artwork of children and of life from a simpler time.

The new "Breitville" app transforms classic paper dolls into an interactive app with five different dolls, clothes and various house decorations based on Engelbreit’s designs.

"Breitville" is available now in the Apple iTunes Store for iPads.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 6, 2013 6:34 PM

You know, these all sound like great ideas. And you might want to use a few in your organization.


Here's the caveat though -- in my story work with organizations, when they use some of these methods to generate stories, what they sometimes get are NOT stories. More often they are poorly crafted stories.


But the organization thinks what they get are fine. Unfortunately, because they are sub-par, so are their results.


The solution? Either formally train folks in storytelling, or make sure the collected stories are well crafted by someone trained in storytelling. Someone trained in marketing, journalism or PR might not work -- again, personal experience speaks. 


These ideas are creative but treat them wisely. And treat your storytelling seriously to maximize your results.


Thanks Gregg Morris for finding and sharing this article.

Peter Fruhmann's curator insight, March 7, 2013 4:14 AM

This article shows that it's possible to create a storytelling culture in organisations. However, I think that 'tips' are not enough and there are quite some managers who go for the 'quick win' and 'quick read'. Creating a storytelling culture takes time (not toi mention the maintenance of that, the greatest challenge). If anyone is inspired by this article, I would suggest reading Annette Simmon's 'The Story Factor' and 'Whoever tells the best story wins'. It's all in there...

Doug Ross's curator insight, March 7, 2013 10:38 AM

We all have stories to tell. Our individual stories make the our collective stories. Our stories define who we are. This is a great way to collect stories in organizations. The trick will be to convince people that storytelling is a value added contribution. We tell stories to children because we believe in them but somehow we forget as we get older

Independent magazines going digital | Feature | Computer Arts magazine | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

The ongoing success of the iPad is creating amazing opportunities for independent mags. We speak to four small publishers making the most of it.“I already had a MacBook, Apple’s development tools were free to download and the developer’s fee was only $99 a year, so I wasn’t taking much risk to explore, plus I had a ton of free time to take up the challenge,” says Moore. “As soon as I got some apps in the Store, I realised I could sell them for a few dollars and make almost the same kinds of profits, if not more, from the apps. I didn’t have to worry about distribution because it was in the App Store. All I had to do was promote a link.”

Lou Salza's curator insight, March 6, 2013 12:10 PM

Barriers persist in our willingness to embrace this technology in schools. Some of our most dedicated and knowledgeable teachers and tutors remain convinced that listening to text is "not REALLY reading!"

As my friend Ben Foss @benfoss points out there are three ways to read: eye reading, ear reading, and finger reading. Let's do what ever works best is any situation. 

 

The benefits to all children who want to read with their ears as well as their eyes are many. How many of those same teachers who feel that listening to a book is not really 'reading' would not dream of preparing thier IRS Return without a calculator? Is using a calculator "not really doing math or not really paying your taxes???

 

Just sayin'

3 Things to Consider When Designing for Mobile Support | Social Media Today

3 Things to Consider When Designing for Mobile Support | Social Media Today | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

Customer support can be a competitive edge - but there are tradeoffs.  A customer in distress likes nothing more than to talk to a real person who can quickly solve their problem.   You’ll see this also in the majority of mobile apps by ecommerce companies - the support channel for most apps is voice, email, or some combination. While all support channels (voice, email and chat) are staffed by a real person, voice feels the most real, because as a customer, you are connected to the problem solver in real time.  The trade-off is that voice doesn’t scale - every team member can only handle one phone call at a time, so, as your volumes rise, you either

a. have to increase staff, or

b. keep your customers waiting.
