Dumbo Feather Launch!

Aug 5 2013

There’s this place in Melbourne called the White House. It’s the home of Small Giants. A special company with a passion for making a difference. But that’s not something you can get from this simple post. Lot’s of people say they want to make a difference. But I’ve had the privilege of meeting and working very closely with Danny, Berry, Brendan, David, and the team at Small Giants. These folks are a class act. And they are indeed making a GIANT difference.

On the property you can smell the energy. After a few work sessions you’d quickly be spoiled with a spot of tea served with honey from the bee farm upstairs. This is the environment where the team creates a quarterly magazine with stories aimed to “heal the world.”

I was introduced to Dumbo Feather by my pal Andy Lark. He gave me a magazine which I read on a long flight from Sydney to Dallas. The work of Dumbo Feather instantly became my favorite magazine. What happened next was a complete surprise. We were asked to work for Dumbo Feather to help them bring their stories to the rest of the world through an iPad app.

Just a few days ago I returned from a several week trip to Auckland. During this time, we launched the iPad application for Dumbo Feather. It’s an application that myself and the team are very proud of. We’re seeing great interest in downloads of the application so far with lots of updates to come. And, the app has already been featured in the “New and Noteworthy” section of iTunes! (download the iPad app here)

Don’t do it for me or for Dumbo Feather…download the application for yourself. Read just one story. That’s all it took for me. If you like what you read, you can take it a step further and save the feathers (stories) locally to your iPad and enjoy them on your flight in a full digital experience. It’s every bit as nice as the magazine.

Congratulations to the team at Small Giants / Dumbo Feather. You’ve launched an amazing application to extend your stories to the rest of the world. Dumbo Feather is a treasure. It’s great to have you on my iPad!

(Thank you, David, for the application screenshots)
