Rude Health’s ‘Quaranteam’ Will Teach Online Workshops

Food and drink brand, Rude Health, has launched a weekly online workshop to teach people how to make its products.

It has established a “Quaranteam”, made up of employees and freelancers who usually work with the events and trade shows that have been cancelled, to conduct the demonstrations through Facebook Live.

The “Friday 5 o’clock Feeds” series goes out on the Rude Health Facebook channel every Friday at 5pm and the programming has already been devised until May 2020.

Recipes include sauerkraut and oat milk. The tutorials will demonstrate the ways that consumers can make the foods and drinks that under normal circumstances they usually buy but are going without due to the coronavirus pandemic. Some consumers are not able to visit their usual supermarket and others may find long-life products such as oat milk are in high demand.

Camp Bestival Launches Virtual Festival For Easter

One of the UK’s biggest family festivals, which was due to takeover Dreamland in Margate this weekend for an enormous Easter Party, is organising a virtual event for families instead.

Camp Bestival says it is planning ‘the funnest weekend we can muster’ using its DJs, live acts, comedy, crafting and family workshops.

Set to run from Saturday morning (April 11th) until Sunday evening across all Camp Bestival’s social media channels, the virtual event is promising ‘Camp Bestival style’ entertainment.

Camp Bestival is encouraging families to set up front room camps and dens, dig out the fancy dress, and create a family festival vibe indoors.

Get your Pimms ready and into the garden for an at home festival…can we really complain? The line-up is being announced today!

2021’s Emojis for iOS & Android Will Be Delayed Due To Pandemic

Next year’s new emojis are expected to be announced six months later, since brands’ hands are currently tied as a result of the unprecedented global COVID-19 outbreak.

Under the current circumstances, The Unicorn Consortium advised their contributors have a lot on their plates at the moment and decided it was in the best interests of our volunteers and the organizations that depend on the standard to push back the release date,

However, 2020’s 117 new emojis, which include a bubble tea and “Italian hand,” will arrive as scheduled. A spokesperson for the Unicode Consortium told DesignTAXI back in January that the new emoticons should be installed in smartphones by September or October 2020.
