        • Prague spring redesign concept

          Každý má svůj lovebrand. Mým je Pražské jaro a proto jsem se rozhodl popřemýšlet nad jeho webem; informační architekturou, funkčností a designem. Rok co rok připravují pořadatelé skvělý program, kde mimo známé interprety a skladatele staví i ty méně známé, které mohou být pro uživatele méně atraktivní. Méně atraktivní ale jen proto, že neví, o čem jejich hudba je. Což je velká škoda. Co takhle zapojit sluch? Kratičké a datově nenáročné mp3 ukázky mohou uživatele zasvětit do nového programu mnohem lépe než fotografie a textový popis. To a mnohem více naleznete na mém novém webu www.valas.cz.

                • Digital Strategy Design - A Primer

                  Hi! I’m Juergen Berkessel, co-founder at Polymash, and in the past four years we’ve focused on developing great and unique mobile app and web experiences for clients on a range of platforms. And in the course of doing this work, I noticed something over and over again: When we drilled down into WHY they needed an app or a site, a whole new story, and a new set of needs emerged. ➠ As we asked questions and held workshops we were often able to act as thinking partners, to better define the audience they wanted to connect with, and to get clarity around the true value proposition behind the core services being offered. And from my past as a user experience designer, we introduced basic UX design methods that greatly improved how concepts connected with their intended audiences. Value Proposition and User Experience Design creates a clear language for related marketing efforts and drives overall content strategy. And more often than not, a supporting web strategy needed modernization in order to generate business through better search engine visibility, increased site traffic, and from improved user experiences. When it comes to marketing, there are rapid paradigm shifts every year, and we helped navigate these especially when it comes to inbound marketing philosophy or list building techniques. Analytics “measure” the effectiveness of marketing campaigns, yet infrastructure and best practices were often lacking to make this routine. Too many times the feedback loop of implementing the learnings back into the overall cycle was missing. In short, we've discovered that the true need of businesses is to establish a holistic digital strategy for their services, products or app ideas. And this is what we have set out to make easier to understand, faster to implement, more affordable to execute and measure. Having a digital strategy is not just a “must have” for corporates and large companies any more, we have partnered with many small business, start-ups and even solopreneurs to achieve measurable results. The tools and techniques to empower small businesses are available and affordable, we just need a little strategic guidance on how to take advantage of these concepts in a way that works for our business goals and budgets. So our goal at Polymash is to lend clarity, de-clutter a jargon filled landscape, and to provide a strategic approach that ensures that web design projects, new product and app launches as well as marketing campaigns can be done in this holistic way. So join us and become “Digital Strategy Savvy”! I’m committed to bring you the latest, easy to understand news and resources in this field. Getting started and finding out more is absolutely free! We are launching a series of webinars, workshops and even a podcast early in 2015. But in the meantime, follow us on twitter @polymash, and click on the button below to download our free “Digital Strategy Resources Guide”, with tons of useful tools, idea articles and video links that will inspire us all as we head into 2015!

                  • Lattice AI choice within constraint. Results Analysis

                    Choice is deferred to machine within constraint. These quickly moving needle-like structures are bound by constraint to the structure of the lattice, but are free to select any adjacent or adjacent +1 location, they must move each time they are called; and may only find them selves to have been permitted to select both a new position and a new orientation state that is complimentary to the geometry structure to which they are bound, and which is not also found to be; the current state of the other, simultaneously. The 2 co-mingled particle clouds are held after having been projected from the state of each of the moments of selection, movement and re-orientation by both of the algorithms instantiated to be observed. The particle cloud holds itself to represent information who's scale might otherwise be to infinitesimal to be understood without need of initiation to the data. *more rotations/movements occur than can be seen, simulation draws once each 1/15th per second. Results preserved. At orders of magnitude scales, intuitively relatable state information may subsequently be shown.

                      What are Tags?


                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
