18th November - Mickey Mouse Day

Recently, The Walt Disney Company launched Disney+. These approximately 100 years has been quite a journey - animation to amusement park to TV channel to streaming.
The iconic Mickey Mouse has stayed constant in this journey. Mascots make your brand concrete. But they’re extremely tough to pull off. If you’ve been toying with the idea of creating one for your brand, start here: https://visualcontent.space/how-to-create-a-brand-mascot/ We’ve written about how our mascot came into being. Read about its history here: https://thedigitalfellow.com/blogs/evolution-anatomy-of-our-logos/ This day, allow us to share that you’ll be seeing some change in our mascot very soon.  The Digital Fellow, as he appears on these digital days’ series, is different from the one you see in the logo. Another new avatar will soon be on our website. It’s a creation of line drawing like the Mickey Mouse. Stay tuned! Do share & like ?? the post to help spread the thought.

20 November - Universal Children's Day

It’s the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child ??.  Watch a documentary made on Kailash Satyarthi to understand if we’ve done any progress in these 30 years! : http://bit.ly/2XrBA5O You must be thinking, yes, it’s sad. But then what can you do? If you are a parent, or if you have any kids ???? around you, you can talk to a child. Listen. Empathise. Because the worst is yet to come. You’re privileged if you now crack jokes about cheating in exams, dozing off in the class, writing notes to each other! Very soon, these stories will become the stuff of legend.  There’s an #AI programme that’s already reading concentration levels of students in China. If grades weren’t enough, now they’re out to measure how much “focused” kids are. Watch: https://on.wsj.com/3411IXO It turns out that the school was made to suspend the use of headbands after a huge public outcry.

Don’t comment today. Be with the kids please!
