LAURA ALBANI | Directors Representative at Sehsucht.

Berlin born and Barcelona bred, Laura always loved movies, specially the cute animated ones.After realising she probably wont be a rich academy award winning actor herself, neither an animated figure, right after graduating school, she decided to rather start her career behind the camera. From audio post- & music-production, her way went quite speedy into other areas of the commercial production world - always driven by her need to gather an overall understanding for the full "making a movie" process. After working as a producer, she understood the undeniable fact: what makes a film beautiful is always the team behind it, the artists, in each little segment and process of movie making. Since 2018 she's representing artist from VFX/3D and post production, 2019 she founded her own agency specialised on Sound Artists. In 2021 she started working as Talent Manager for Production Houses, and shifted over to Sehsucht in 2022, to look for great talents to work with, whilst representing Sehsucht's amazing Directors and Creatives Roster.

EP 47 WEB3: Lacoste's 3D Design Engineer tools, workflows and future views on 3D, WEB3 and Ai.

Chris Barlow:

"I push the boundaries of how 3D is used within Lacoste PCL.

My primary focus is on the design and development of new footwear. I also create 3D renders in place of physical samples, as well as animations for both sell in tools and global product launches.

I work closely with footwear designers, developers and Asia factories to drive new design through mainline, SMU and future concept projects.

I also work across performance led briefs, where 3D has helped to iterate designs quickly with technicity and manufacturability in mind. Often, I will use Grasshopper and Rhino 3D to generate upper patterns and outsole textures/treads that can be modified to meet the specific design requirements of these complex briefs.

By pushing 3D and implementing new ways in working, I have been able to streamline processes, delivering better results in a shorter space of time, with less samples being made.

I believe that 3D can be used smartly to lead a more sustainable approach to footwear design, adding value across design, development and marketing.

Key skills: Product modelling and visualization (Rhino, KeyShot), algorithmic design (Grasshopper), 3D printing, animation, Adobe Suite, 3D printing"

Joshua believes that everybody and anything has a story but not always a voice. Through his own ongoing Journey of Self was he able to see his own story and rediscover his voice that led to the creation of ‘CONNECTED’, as a way to aid others in seeing and telling their unique story, in order to find their own voice. 

Parts of ‘CONNECTED’ called ’CONNECTED’ “The Mandem Story” was shown in the Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam (Foam) as part of the group exhibition called Disconnect early 2022 and subsequently served as the bedrock of the concept for MAKERS VAN NOORD. 

MAKERS VAN NOORD is part of a research program (Centrinno) by The European Union (EU) spread over 9 European pilot cities in order to research the posibilities of how can we turn industrial, historical heritage sites and areas into creative, cultural production centres called Fab City Hubs, that:

1. work with the ecological challenges of our time

2. stimulate a diverse, inclusive, innovative economy for the city

3. and use heritage as a catalyst for innovation and social inclusion?

In this episode Joshua also briefly touches on his next project called ‘ReCONNECTED’ and the great and largely unharvested powers of our good memories and the rol the limbic system plays in this.

EP 41 DAO: Advisory board member of Metaverse Fashion Council Simon Mikolajczyk talks DAO.

" I started my career in my father's marketing company- at first, helping him with various projects, from finding new customers to create social media campaigns, and then I had to be Ceo ad interim because of his hospitalization. I maintained the company, that included working with Media-Saturn holding and Nivea, negotiations of new contracts and finding new partners.
In that time I also founded my first own businesses, Hype'n' and a lifestyle online magazine and online platform for exchanging style photos.

Then, after 3rd position in the First Step into Business by Adam Mickiewicz University, competition for young entrepreneurs I co-founded fashion e-commerce start-up Neat Store that dominated Polish social media channels and was very high in e-commerce rankings thanks to online marketing campaigns and very well located showroom/boutique. During this project, my primary role was brand/social media/business development management, creating a membership program, events organization.

After 5 years in Berlin, MaisonDAO project was started at the end of 2021.
