WATERCOOLER Central Europe Bicycle Light Tour

Eat. Ride. Sleep. That’s all there is to a light tour.

In August 2009, three friends and I did a self-guided bicycle tour across four countries in Central Europe. We had our bikes, what we wore, and whatever we managed to stuff into the small bags on our (mostly) fixed-gear bikes. It’s the simple life, save for the overly handy iPhone and GPS usage along the way.

It’s trying times for newspapers in today’s evolving media landscape.  Just Friday, The Boston Globe was threatened to be shut down by its parent company, The New York Times Co, which makes this TED video so timely.  Polish designer, Jacek Utko, asks “Can design save the newspaper?”  See what he has learned through his design efforts for major Eastern European publications and enjoy some beautiful print and information design in the process.

A couple years ago, we launched a side project called the World Clock Project.  The idea was to create a gallery of public clocks from around the world, and use the photos from the gallery to power a timepiece where each minute is represented by a different photo (showing, of course, the correct time).  Since our flagship product is all about time tracking, we saw the project as a perfect mix of art, community involvement, and relatedness to our business.

Recently, New York Times writer Zahra Sethna came across our project and reached out to us to do a shopping column for wall clocks.  Here’s that resulting story:
