The other day I had the great pleasure of having a constructive and creative discussion with a group of Biologists from Edinburgh University.
Armed with Swedish cinnamon buns that I had baked the night before I headed out to their Lab.
Finding the lab turned out to be the biggest challenge…
I had the most inspiring discussion with them and now there is lots of work to do, trying to understand everything and make it useful.
I have graphs , equations and new words that I have never heard before, I am in heaven! Time for me to read The blind watchmaker by Richard Dawkins and just roll around in this pool of intellect to see what sticks. I have a few new concepts to look into when it comes to selection. Simultaneous selection of phenotypes (traits), breeder’s equations, pre-definition mode of variation , product symbiosis and my all time favourite; the fittest maximum in multivariate space! This and much more now has to pass through the slow processor of this designer and hopefully come out the other side.
I would like to say a big thank you, for being so open, friendly and clever, to:
You are all fantastic! Do keep in touch to help me maintain at least a small measure of scientific correctness and inspiring chats over coffee!
It’s almost christmas and the weather is horrible, it is HARD to keep focused…
But I push on, read articles and chase contacts that never get back to me. Next week I’m having an interview with two evolutionary biologists, that should be so much fun!
I’m very interested in the work of James Surowiecki, I would recommend anyone to read his book The wisdom of Crowds. I think that the work is progressing ok, soon I will be needing a computer scientist and a software developer. Is that you?
Then get in touch!
I hope to soon have some images to show you all, not of anything finished but hopefully some good sketches.
You guys came up with some great names, keep it up and we will have a chocolate bar by Wednesday!
It will be waxed non bleached paper, a lot better than plastic and more in line with our theme. It’s nostalgic and still keeps the chocolate fresh. The paper will be completely covered by and image.
I have 4 options for the image on the wrapper, all of them Toulouse Lautrec posters. Lovely colours and great for the “La Belle Époque” theme.
To seal the paper there is two options, unless you have any better ideas, if so please let me know.
Wax seal, it’s a bit silly maybe but doesn’t everyone like the feeling of breaking one of those seals? Like there is a hidden treasure inside just for you….. Well that is exactly what it is! Silly and fun.
OR, a simple hidden glue seal, it’s completely hidden and works just like any other seal on a sweet wrapper. That means you can see more of the packaging paper and it’s maybe a bit more grown up. Simple and clean look
