Inspiration } The 1 Book


The 1 book by Dan Zadra & Kobi Yamada, is such a lovely soul-lifting book, that is aesthetically  designed & simply written. It's a heart-warming inspiration of a life-giving journey, that digs deep in your soul,  to plant a seed, & water a soon-to-thrive motivation! I'd love to add this book to my coffee table books soon!

TEDx Arabia } Archie Lee & the Steps around Kabaa

An inspiring speech by Archie Lee, the co-founder & director of PlayLab

As an artist & a designer, I believe that Art & Design can serve a mission beyond
its aesthetics context. Archie Lee has shown us an inspiring example of that!

His speech had awakened a feeling in me, I haven’t felt for awhile now!
It’s motivating & boosting in away. I believe along the journey we gradually
lose this level of enthusiasm.

The question is, how to keep on maintaining this level of motivation & enthusiasm? 
how to revive it in those who lost it already?
