☑️ I walked in the forest and spent time thinking if the new name is the right one.
I imagine a new brand name to be used in conversations between friends to mark a social change moment, when friends are creating instead of consuming; also creating slowly instead of rushing to burnout:
-"ogiziu, I slow down, I rest, I create"

☑️ After thinking on my own, discussing domain name ideas with Mindey and Malu, I decided to use "2kokono.com" in english as a primary domain, which allows to clearly differentiate target audiences and offerings: 2kokono.com is for self-realisation services and kokono.ie is for business services

☑️ Added a transparent background to the logo
☑️ Explained logo meaning
I permit my concept of Verpete expressed as a visual logo to be used by 2kokono project

Discover a creativity process for learning that can be shared with students as a learning experience
Discover the missing puzzles for a learning space where students would come to learn (how would students interact with one another, how will we manage the space, are we going to have online self-directed learning based projects for students or will we have online courses on essential know-how to support their creativity, how many, what topics are essential, etc) and how to call it (incubator, academy, school, research centre or university)
Online course landing page for both of our websites with at least a registration form (or payment functionality)
Updated a website with new texts and images, and 4 learning challenges based on a discussion with Malu beforehand.
The idea is to showcase the main learning experience on the website and later on to test this with potential students. The main question is: What process would students go through to learn creative problem solving?
Creativity Process for our students to experience:
Loving Systems challenge: a habit forming learning experience to learn "no judgment" and increase a sense of a peace of mind as a foundation (soil) for creativity
Pausing Systems challenge: a habit forming learning experience to learn "observation" and remove inner blockers (weeds) that prevent creativity
Tiny Move challenge: a habit forming learning experience to learn "prototyping" and complete small works in focused flow states over a long period of time
Symbiotic Creativity challenge: a habit forming learning experience to learn "co-creation" and to allow one's ideas to merge with another person's ideas, so that a whole that's bigger than its parts is created
In the call we discussed:
Realised a need to prototype a whole dream (learning space) instead of one course only
Discussed an idea of KOKONO integrating with 0oo for potential online space for project-based learning
Mapped the needs of potential students in Argentina: "people need to learn to create solo first, and later on to collaborate", "people need to feel cared for in a beautiful space", "people need to unlearn their bias before they learn something new"
Mapped the key questions of "Where are the changemakers and wannabe entrepreneurs?", "How can people quit a job and get money elsewhere?", "Where do people go to learn to create passion projects and to find creative partners?", "How to teach reflection and to problem solve?"
Mapped the steps we both want to teach: "Learn to live with less", "Explore your story and discover your purpose", "create something out of nothing", "encouraging people to reflect", "create your own ecosystem as a professional network"
Made 2 early stage prototypes of landing pages on Miro
Realised that Instinto Creador is more interested to be a creativity learning space starting with the body first
Realised that KOKONO is more interested to be a creativity learning space starting with the mind and projects first
Merging happened! Instinto Creador and KOKONO come up with a blended process where people would learn all - Body, Mind connection as a springboard for creativity on this planet Earth
Came up with an early stage process for learning creativity based on 4 learning challenges and sketched that on paper - Loving Systems, Pausing Systems, Prototyping, Co-Creation - that would feel like playing a game Mario Bro :)
Imagined how incubator would work and what assumptions we need to test to build in the core value
Ruta and Malu had a call to discuss:
websites content: kokonolab.com and instintocreador.com will be for courses, kokono.ie for services
website review: kokonlab.com prototype
courses topics and challenges - as products to sell
pricing for services
next steps: prototyping course landing pages on Monday, 13th Sept
A website about a space for learning creativity with sample classes; colour palette of black and neon to communicate an idea of personal transformation (black) and creativity (colourful plasticine images)
First I made a website under a different domain and hosting (Sept 7th), and then I recreated a website on a new hosting under a new domain (Sept 8th)
A call on Zoom and Miro with Colm and Amy about creating a virtual incubator where people create a passion project with reflective exercises and how to test this idea in a real world
Hey, friends! I have a new project name - OGIZIU (instead of KOKONO). The name change came out from my experiences this winter, balancing the darkness with the light and a concept I'm working on about the black holes (to be shared).
ogiziu means "wow, see!" in Lithuanian, used in moments of a surprise, awe, when something is observed, understood. in fact, it's a short sentence of 2 words: "ogi" is a pause moment and "ziu" is an understanding moment. when you pronounce it, it works like a breath!
I share the details and progress with this project on Miro.
