A pledge to betterment by Erik Marinovitch

A “pledge to betterment” drawn by Erik Marinovitch.




A straightforward work contract

“You give me money, I’ll give you creative.
I’ll start when the check clears.
Time is money. More time is more money.
I’ll listen to you. You listen to me.
You tell me what you want, I’ll tell you what you need.
You want me to be on time, I want you to be on time.
What you use is yours, what you don’t is mine.
I can’t give you stuff I don’t own.
I’ll try not to be an ass, you should do the same.
If you want something that’s been done before, use that.


If you want your way, you have to pay.
If you don’t pay, I have final say.

Let’s create something great together.”

This is actually a work contract for a design firm in Chicago. So straightforward and simple!



We should share meals with others more often! Love this ad from President’s Choice, a Canadian food brand.

These are all from my Instagram feed. I felt the need to document all the inspiring things people created and posted for this past weekend’s Women’s March in major US cities. I wish I was there to participate, and I am happy to hear that many of our friends and relatives did so. As a mom of three girls I think it is more important than ever “to show up and speak up” for women’s rights and equality for all, because unfortunately whatever happens in Trump-land affects us all.

A new kind of store

Can you imagine this? Amazon has introduced a new kind of store, with no lines and no checkout. You just grab your items and go, and your groceries will be charged automatically! For now, only Amazon employees can shop in the new Seattle store, but they plan to open the store to the public early next year. Read more about it here!

Momondo – The DNA journey

Momondo is a global travel search site. And they came up with this idea for an ad: They supposedly asked 67 people from all over the world to take a DNA test, and it turns out they have much more in common with other nationalities than they would ever have thought.

Although I suspect this film is using actors, nonetheless I think the message is so strong that it works. Brilliant!

thanks George!

Look Beyond Borders, a four-minute experiment

Psychologist Arthur Aron discovered that 4 minutes of looking into each other’s eyes can bring people closer. Using this discovery, Amnesty International decided to carry out a simple experiment, during which refugees and Europeans sat opposite each other and looked into each other’s eyes. The experiment was conducted in Berlin and the participants were ordinary people. Everything you see is real reactions and emotions. Beautiful.


Brendan Harvey’s Goodnewsletter

Branden Harvey's Goodnewsletter

Branden Harvey has made the idea of seeking the good in the world his mission. He started a project where each week he shares five of the most hopeful news stories he has come across from around the world in the form of a newsletter, he calls, the Goodnewsletter. The reaction of people has been incredible.  Hundreds of people sent in articles, videos, and stories of hopeful things, happening in the world. I have also subscribed to the newsletter. In a world of bad news and negativity all around, there was obviously a need for a hopeful voice to share only good news. As Harvey says: “There’s no shortage of good news in the world. You just have to know where to look.” Love the idea!
