Earth Experience Design

Digital is so often a world of short-term thinking focused on selling superficial wants, and it's killing our planet. We need designers who demand space to think long term and who are willing to struggle so that they can address deep needs.

We need wisdom, truth, ethics and an understanding of worth that measures the impacts of our designs at an ecosystem level.

Less Thinkering, More Tinkering

A neon-soaked passion-filled presentation of all things creativity, trying to strike the elusive balance between uncurbed enthusiasm and pragmatic process.

Director & Designer Gavin Strange plots his creative journey through his time in the design and film industry– picking it apart and extracting the lessons and learnings from it all. It’s loud, silly, and hopefully energizing. The aim of the game is to convince YOU to make more of the stuff that makes YOUR heart sing.
