This holiday season, in lieu of giving playful gifts, we’ve been inspired to give one meaningful gift on behalf of our clients and suppliers that will have a profound impact on the lives of 92 orphaned children in Kenya.

Our good friends, Kim and Geoff, are founders of the Imani Orphanage in Kenya, Africa. They take in children from the streets who have virtually no hope in life, and give them not only a caring home and food but an education as well. We all take computers for granted; yet most of these children have never even seen a computer. That’s why, in the spirit of the season, we are providing the Imani orphanage with a computer lab – complete with laptops, software, printers, desks and chairs, and a teacher.

Your support of Rally Creative over the past year has made this life-changing investment possible. If you are inspired by what we are building with Imani, and would like to make a further contribution, please contact julie@rallycreative.com.

A startup called TrademarkVision aims to simplify it by replacing that laborious and arcane process with what amounts to a machine-learning-powered reverse image search. This isn’t in some lab, either: The EU just switched their whole image trademark system over to it.

The Spanish architecture firm Izaskun Chinchilla has embraced the Ikea hack in its design for the Utopic_US coworking space in Madrid. The space is decked out in Ikea products, most of which have been put to unconventional use: Bunk beds were transformed into desk systems, hammocks became chairs, funky meeting rooms were done up like a traditional Japanese spa, and ladders and swings abound.
