Focus Generator

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

fg_icon_colorPreNeo Press is focusing in on creative strategies with a new online project:
Focus Generator.

Focus Generator is a tool for artists who enjoy the challenge of randomly set project parameters; and for those who find that preset parameters help them to focus their creative energies into projects beyond their previous imaginings.

Focus Generator comes in three flavors: Focus Generator, is the primary engine and provides the highest level of challenge for the contemporary creative. Focus Light is a mid level machine for those who know their media yet enjoy the challenge of content triggers. Custom Focus provides the the highest level of individuation as it allows Participants to custom select from four areas of randomly generated stimuli.

Take the Focus Generator Challenge and check out the creative work of Focus Generator Participants: http://focusgenerator.net

Hello Catty!

Saturday, April 2nd, 2011

Hello Catty! by Karen Chew and Nanette Wylde

Karen Chew and Nanette Wylde are meowing up a storm over the completion of their new book Hello Catty!

Hello Catty! is a light-hearted, yet poignant play on catty behaviors couched by a feline perspective and inspired by the meanness of others.

Designed as a movable board book, it consists of five two-page spreads. Each spread contains user interactive elements: wheels, pop-ups, pulls, spinners, windows, flaps, a game and ephemera.

A Hello Catty! celebration event is scheduled for late April. Contact either Karen or Nanette to be included in the guest list. Space is limited.

See more about Hello Catty! at Hunger Button Books.
