Behind the scenes on location with Hello Design

Published by | Friday, February 25th, 2011

The documentary team is pleased to share some production stills from the just released Creative Inspirations installment about Hello Design. We shot at Hello’s Culver City, California studio that they (of course) designed themselves. It’s a great collaborative space with lots of daylight. It’s also next door to Tea Forest, the popular coffee/tea shop built by CEO David Lai and his wife. Started as more of an experiment, Tea Forest is now a bustling part of their neighborhood. We also shot at a number of locations including the amazing Walt Disney Concert Hall. Because of Hello’s working relationship with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, we were able to get permission to shoot in this architectural marvel as part of our story about the Bravo Gustavo, the iPhone app they developed to promote new conductor Gustavo Dudamel. Enjoy!

Content inspiration and think-tank week at lynda.com

Published by | Monday, December 21st, 2009

Last week at lynda.com, all of our off-site staff authors, acquisitions managers, content managers, and the like were in town for the company holiday party and to take part in week-long think-tank meetings to plan the content for the lynda.com Online Training Library® in the coming months. It’s always inspiring to get everyone together, and admittedly, a bit exhausting to generate so many great ideas!

To let off a little steam and relax, the entire content development team went to dinner and a movie. Not just any movie, though! One of our very own cinematographer/directors here at lynda.com, Jacob K. Cunningham, screened his first film Thy Will Be Done in downtown Ventura. It was great to see so many people at the screening, and to support one of our own talented people in their creative endeavors.
