ZURB: Designers Gone Wired

Posted on August 26th, 2015 by sheldon

We'd like to make a shout out to our friends down the street at an excellent Product Design company in Campbell by the name of ZURB. They're getting ready to take on a 24-hour design sprint for charity. It's a challenge they started ten years ago called Wired.

Each year, ZURB chooses a charity that they'd like to help out by donating marketing and design help. The effort is kicked off in a 24-hour coffee driven all-hands-on-deck sprint where together with members of the charity's team, they come up with a complete makeover of the company's marketing approach. At the end of the sprint, the lucky charity will have a shiny new website, marketing materials, and an action plan on how they can best utilize their professional looking new tools to get the word out about their mission.

The beneficiary of Wired this year is the Downtown Streets Team, a non-profit dedicated to helping the homeless by helping them find housing, develop skills, and find employment.

They've requested that we help boost morale by sending messages of support to their soon to be exhausted team. You can do that over the social media of choice by hash tagging your message with #ZURBwired. They start at 8am on Thursday morning, and it's a direct non-stop flight from there so keep those messages of support coming, especially in the later hours.

You can also follow their progress during Wired here:

We'd like to heartily thank the City of Campbell and particularly the Parks and Rec department for organizing another amazing season of summer concerts in Downtown Campbell. This is their show. We're just happy to be the neighborhood in which it's hosted. All credit goes to the city for this wonderful summer tradition.

As a last word about the 2015 concerts, we'd like to share with you this video of someone having waaay too much fun at the final concert with the Sage Band. Having waaay too much fun is encouraged, BTW.

Teeth Dancing to Sage at the Campbell Summer Concert Series

Ok, I just posted a photo of this, but the video is even better. Here's a video of the "teeth on a stick" dancers at the Sage concert tonight in Downtown Campbell. What a great way to close out the 23rd annual Summer Concert Series. Let's hear it for the City of Campbell's Parks and Rec department!

If you ever lose a bet and have to eat a hat, have this man's number on speed dial. At least it would be an appetizing hat.

Faced with the daunting challenge of turning a mess of ingredients into something appetizing, Chef Jonathan Toste of Willard Hicks Grill in Downtown Campbell wins a cooking cage match at the Gilroy Garlic Festival by magically turning Spam, Dole Fruit Cocktail, Cucumber, and Squash Blossoms into something you'd want to share on your Instagram account before you devoured it.

Mmmmm, Dole Fruit Cocktail and Spam. Seriously, Mr. Toste, Willy Wonka has nothin on you.

The Mercury News has the details of the two recipes that earned Bossman Toste the top prize.

Last night was a mild and balmy night in Northern California. It was the perfect night to enjoy the evening out dining on the sidewalk at Tessora's Barra di Vino​ or one of the other numerous restaurants in Downtown Campbell​. Nights like these were made for friends and wine and the watching of people as they drift along in the slowest minutes of summer.

Thanks a million to Instagrammer thomascalifornia_ for this amazing photo! Click his profile name if you'd like to see more of his photos.

This is quite humorous and quite legend... I was browsing Instagram and noticed some familiar looking donuts posted to the account of the Encinitas Farmer's Market. That would be the Encinitas, CA that's near San Diego. They were photos of donuts from Psycho Donuts in Downtown Campbell. Apparently one of their managers was up here and visited Psycho Donuts and was so smitten that she had to post about it to the fans for the Encinitas Farmer's Market.

Yup, we're all about the donuts here... today at least. Not a bad lot to be in. Thanks to Encinitas Station Certified Farmer's Market for the shout out and thanks for the photo. We'll have to come visit you next time.

Check out the packed dance floor at the July 16th show of the 2015 Campbell Summer Concert Series with the Cocktail Monkeys​ getting their glam rock on. It didn't seem like it'd be a Def Leppard sort of crowd, but I guess history shows a quarter century on, big hair and a loud guitar ain't no crime after all.
