We’re celebrating! Little Printer is available for pre-orders from today.
This is an incredible feeling.
I love this studio. Awesome work, folks.
As Little Printer gets closer to launch, we’re figuring out how to best work with publishers — not just creating the simplest possible way to get content on LP, but also how to share design tips and work closely to invent the handiest, most delightful publications.
So to learn, we asked a couple dozen of our smartest – and most forgiving – friends to the BERG studio for a practice Little Printer Hack Day. (A Hack Day is a day spent with a load of people all coding side-by-side to make and show off neat ideas.)
It was hugely energising. Lots of pizza, beer, and demos of the publications everyone made.
Alice organised, and did a fantastic job! It was fun, super creative, and we received incredibly valuable feedback and ideas on the technical method of integrating with Little Printer, and more generally on the usage and service.
I got my hands dirty too, and I’ve not coded for ages. The publication I made wasn’t as pretty as the other dozen or so demos, but hey it’s me writing this blog post so I get to show what I made:
Alice has a write-up of Little Printer Hack Day — go read it!
And just to say: Now we have a better idea what we’re doing, we’re keen on having more events like this soon. Thank you Alice, and thank you everyone who was able to come!
I’m super proud to see BERG at #44 in Fast Company’s list of the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies.
It’s an incredible list to be on! Apple, Facebook, Google and Amazon, Square and Twitter are all there — and to pick just a few of the others, Jawbone, Polyvore, and Kickstarter.
Little Printer gets a shout out — our product for the home that prints you a miniaturised personal newspaper, daily.
It also seems like BERG is the only design consultancy on the list. We spend 50% of our time collaborating with clients, people like Intel and the Guardian, prototyping and producing everything from cute toys that talk in augmented reality to the first magazine (and magazine platform) for the iPad.
We’re currently planning our work across March and April. If you’d like to work with us, inventing and innovating, do drop me a line. The email is firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime here’s our profile in Fast Company’s list: #44 Berg – For wildly imagining the marriage of the digital and physical worlds.
Thanks FastCo, and thanks team!
