Friday Special – Stuff We Like
Lately at work I’ve been thinking about the personality types of marketers. How come everyone at ZJ is so similar? But maybe that’s just the ZJ personality. Get to know us, by checking out the stuff we like right now.
Music: The Field
This is the album we’ve been playing on our Sonos a lot lately. At first it sounds like simple electronica, but it has a weird, eery, quirky feel that makes you stop and listen.
Website: 826 Seattle’s new site
826 Seattle, a youth writing and tutoring center started by Dave Eggers of McSweeney’s, just relaunched their website. The design is playful and functional. When will McSweeney’s finally get a new site?
Web site: Mumbai Boss
Designer Peter Petrulo likes Mumbai news site Mumbai Boss. The design is pretty sexy. Let’s get something that slick happening in Minneapolis.
Web site: The New York Times’ Lens

An app to help you improve your golf game.
App: Gear Patrol
One thing I’ve learned at Zeus Jones is that companies will sweat to make a men’s product-related website. Whereas lady websites are like “Here’s some stuff, you know you want to buy it!”, men’s websites are full of stunning design, smart and witty editorial content and innovative content structures. And now one of the hot ones, Gear Patrol, has an equally sleek iPad app. I’m jealous.
Videos: Sam Calagione’s TED talk about reinventing beer
Movies: Martha Marcy May Marlene
I spent Halloween night at a screening of this film starring Mary-Kate and Ashley’s younger sister Elizabeth. It was the scariest Halloween I’ve had yet.
