Apply for Google Creative Lab 5

cl5_01

This is one of the coolest job application forms I’ve ever seen! Google Creative Lab is now accepting applications for The Five, a one-year paid program in the lab! They’ve previously had writers, filmmakers, designers, developers, and even some people who didn’t fit any of those titles.

Their first test for you is to see what you can do with a few simple shapes, a search bar, and a blank page. The interactive application was made by current Fivers: Andrew HerzogPedro SanchesSimone NoronhaEnli Li, and two non-Fivers (Carly Ayres and code from Nicky Tesla).

Apply here and check out some of the submissions below.

Sponsored Post: Photo Journey with Michael Schulz and the Infiniti Q30


(48)_In__A010940

Berlin-based photographer Michael Schulz, better known as @Berlinstagram on Instagram, shared his first iPhone photo on the platform back in 2010. Since then he has become one of the most popular German Instagrammers amassing over 400k followers.

Schulz was recently sent a special digital compass, called The Seeker, and led to an unknown destination programmed into it. The device was inspired by the all new Infiniti Q30 which breaks the mold of conventional design with a reverse crescent shape on its rear and an elevated stance to give new perspective on the city (in the same way Schulz’s photos do).

Watch the video below as the photographer follows The Seeker into his city, taking photos along the way.

To support the launch of the all-new Q30, Infiniti created the Seeker – a modern day version of the traditional compass, inspired by the vehicle.

With the ability to point you to any destination on Earth, the Seeker was put in the hands of a number of influencers, including Instagrammer Michael Schulz, aka @berlinstagram, who got a chance to test drive the new Q30. Seeker led the way to the car, which was hidden in a secret Berlin location.

Useless Info of the Day: How Often the Tears of Joy Emoji is Used on Twitter

emoji-tracker-twitter

File this under: “If you’re really bored”. Matthew Rothenberg has created a website that tracks every time someone tweets an emoji, in real-time. It’s actually kinda scary how often people are using that tears of joy emoji. I have to admit I spent a minute watching and waiting until one of the bottom emojis was used.

Can someone please make this into a screensaver? Check out Emojitracker. (Thanks for the tip, Eric.)
