The second edition of my ‘feature post’ collection, is based around Dodolab‘s Andrew Hunter and Lisa Hirmer’s set of Rijeka StoryCubes. I emailed Lisa especially because of her design knowledge and background and she came back with some insightful thoughts. Asked why and how the StoryCubes were used Lisa mentioned, “The Rijeka StoryCubes were designed […]

It’s time to take a trip down memory lane I think and visit a featured collection of cubes. In the upcoming weeks I will be writing a few featured posts consisting of e-mail interviews I conducted with the makers of various StoryCubes. This week is the turn of Esther Leslie’s ‘In the Shadow of Senate […]
