Weekly roundup – Transcendency
We’ve got a great thing going on here at the Formlab studio, and it’s our word of the week. While we love sharing our inspiration for the week, this is also a great opportunity to share our word of the week, and broaden our (and hopefully your) vocabulary. What springs to mind when thinking of Transcendency? Well definitely the way the Donald sees himself, let’s see if we can still learn a few lessons from him. Also this week we’re testing our genius spark, applauding random acts of kindness and rooting for a typical Dutch sandwich filler to conquer the US.

Snapchat isn’t where you go to be pretty
Most of us here at Formlab are digitally native, or at least, have embraced our digital personas. We’re all active on the bigger social networking sites, but Snapchat is still a little under the radar. Your Snapchat profile it’s not necessarily something to share with the world, more something to share between friends. Is it because of the funny filters, or because these fleeting and low quality images show more of the truth?
