de.Frost #21 The Cult Of The Now

140410_DeFrost_Stuart-0060140410_DeFrost_Stuart-0228140410_DeFrost_Stuart-0237

Last night at de.Frost* Stuart Buchanan gave a talk titled “The Cult Of The Now“.  The talk pulled together many disparate strands that have either informed daily discussions at digital agency The Nest, or drawn from questions raised by his clients, about the impact of their own efforts, as well as global trends around notions of information relevancy and overload.  Stuart concluded by looking at ways in which we can help ourselves and our audiences at the same time, by rethinking the importance of now and rewiring our entire approach to digital marketing.

For those who missed the lecture we will be posting a video of the talk soon.

An ode to love

Oz_Harvest 01

For food rescue charity OzHarvest, we quite literally put the great depth of commitment from those who donate food, time or money at the heart of their annual report – with a centerfold featured ‘Book of Hearts’.

Oz_Harvest 08

The insert is a compilation of art works created by key partners, including chefs Maggie Beer, Matt Moran and Frank Camorra, alongside those of OzHarvest personnel and volunteers. The art project uses the ‘love-heart’ motif to visually represent what the charity means to each of the creators, aiming to highlight the work of the ‘heroes’ behind the organisation.

Oz_Harvest 10

To make the document engaging and easy to consume, data is presented as info-graphics, with bold pull out quotes, and in an echo to the charity’s identity text is shown as typographic motifs. To minimise print costs the whole document is designed using only black and the organisations brand colours are expressed through the use of a bright yellow paper stock.

de.Frost* 21: The Cult of The Now

21_deFrost_Stu_Invitation_A_01

Every moment of every day is now pregnant with the possibility of new information – devices are persistently within reach 24 hours a day, chirping for our attention. When the call comes, we instinctively respond – so much so that the average person now consumes up to 75 gigabytes of media every day and switches applications 36 times every hour. The net affect of rabid information consumption and multitasking is not only distracting, it is also now proven to be literally rewiring our brains.

But what value does immediate information bring? What is so important that it has the power to interrupt our workflow, our personal conversations, our intimate moments? We’re constantly being told that our attention is valuable – so why are we throwing it away?

As individuals, we have the power to say ‘no’ – if only we would.

As digital designers, writers, developers and producers, we have the power to change the paradigm – if only we would.

In this deFrost* talk, Stuart Buchanan, Director of The Nest and Head of Digital for The Frost*Group, campaigns for the dissolution of The Cult of The Now, for a connected experience that celebrates relevancy not immediacy, and looks at practical ways in which we can bring focus to our digital lives.

10th April 2014, 6pm for 6:30pm start

Frost* Design, Lv.1/15 Foster Street Surry Hills, Sydney
Free, RSVP at Eventbrite
