JoyEngine was created in 2005 to highlight good work and serve as a source of creative inspiration. Driven by an author/contributor base of like-minded creative professionals, the site is in a state of perpetual change, occasionally pausing to call attention to noteworthy ideas, individuals, and endeavors.
As JoyEngine enters its fifth year it hopes to continue to inspire, inform, and ultimately promote positive change in the world. The JoyEngine team holds the belief that access to information is one of the many factors limiting ideation and innovation. With this ideal in mind, JoyEngine strives to function as a platform for the exchange and the utilization of information.
While the content of JoyEngine spans a range of subject matter from graphic design to technology, from indy DIY fashion to contemporary art, from global events to local politics, it’s all bound by a collective consciousness. This collective consciousness shares the belief that change, while often challenging, is inevitable. That change is good and that change leads to progress – whether it be in the arts or in politics or in your own neighborhood.
Sketchbot Custom Show / My Plastic Heart: NYC
We’ve followed our friend Steve Talkowski’s progress designing, prototyping, and eventually producing his signature Sketchbot for about 2 years now. It’s been a wonderful process to witness and a testament to Steve’s talent, commitment and vision. To kick off what Steve’s calling “Phase 1″ of Sketchbot he’s teamed up withMyPlasticHeartNYC to throw a massive Sketchbot custom show. He’s assembled a spectacular cast of 50+ customizers. We’re humbled to have been invited and to have the opportunity to take part. We couldn’t be more psyched for Steve.
