»Being playful is of huge importance for being innovative. I mean if you go into a culture and there are a bunch of stiffs going around, I can guarantee you they are not likely to invent anything.« — David Kelly
it's already the 10th issue of »UX und Tollerei« and also the first one in March. Applause. And for this special occasion Robert Richter, a great artist based in Dresden, joined me for a lovely anniversary illustration.
Though, this week was quite calm, I managed to get you a few interesting reads. So without further ado, enjoy today's round-up. Happy reading!
