  • 9. Inspirational Peter Hale Small is beautiful. Small can create extraordinary things. And often it is the most extraordinary that is ob- served or created through the simple desire for joy. “Really small things can bring immense joy. Personality goes a long way when it comes to simple joy,” says Peter Hale, de- signer & co-founder of GBH. “Basic ingenuity can bring joy. The random collisions and the way things come together can bring joy. Analog can be joyful—there’s a humanity and warmth which is often lacking in digital.” Indeed. To fully embrace the possibilities of mobile technology, we need to un- derstand one thing. And this one thing must be at the heart of every- thing we do. Mobile is nothing if it is not human.”So what I’m talking about isfinding joy in simple things bybeing thoughtful and makingmore of less. – Peter Hale © MLOVE ConFestival 2011 9

So they gave them a voice. In car-crazy China, Volkswa- gen recently asked what kind of car do you want? The People’s Car Project launched in May, creating a social platform where potential customers could de- sign the car they wanted to drive— and help the automaker create “the Volkswagen model of the future.” Less than two months later, there are over 20,000 registered users, and the car creator option drives over 50% of traffic to the site. Personalizing digital relationships and experiences is key in today’s marketing strategies. Mobile apps can help do this, especially when one considers the average smartphone user has 30 apps on their phone, 9 of which they have used within the past month.
