Easyjet Traveller Magazine

Good or Bad: ☆

A photoshoot in a recent edition of Easyjet Traveller magazine showed models posing in the Memorial to the Murdered Jews in Europe, a memorial in Berlin to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. Regardless of whose fault it is, how on earth could that have been thought of as a good idea? Didn’t anyone think, at any point, that there may be something not quite right?

I’m not sure it’s within the remit of this blog to post on this but I’m so astonished that I can’t help myself.

It’s so bad.

Carstens-KERAMIK Namenbecher

Good or Bad: ☆

Every name is something special. So why not buy a mug that’s identical to 25,000 other mugs?

Good or Bad: ☆

So you spend an enormous amount of money on development and then hobble yourself within the first couple of screens. Anyway, here’s a short limp around the interface.

We come across things every day that we think are great. Work in the way we want, look super, feel right...that sort of thing.

We also come across things every day that don't quite work the way we would like.

These aren't necessarily massive things. But they tend to be the things that make people buy something again or try something different.

What Am I Up To?

I, Daniel Lewington, live in London again and work at Apsmart. I spent last year in Hamburg with my partner, learning German and working at SinnerSchrader. It was great but then the Apsmart thing came up and I couldn't turn it down.

Great decision.

And before Germany, I'd been living in London (about 15 years) working for a number product/service/interaction/online design agencies. There's more information on the other pages.

Or you can look at my LinkedIn and/or Xing profiles.

When not working travel, play football, cycle, swim and see friends. Life stuff.


Polite of Cameron to send congrats Obama. Wonder if that was the result he was hoping for?

Must not enjoy footage of Republicans crying. Can't help wondering if they display the same sorrow with regard to social inequality.

Got a few new followers after Creative Mornings. Thanks for coming along. Hope it was worth it. If not, at least there were croissants.
