About Dave Seah, Investigative Designer

Welcome to my website!

Here I like to share my nerdy experiments, dabbling in graphic design and programming as I try to create a life based on self-sustaining creative inquiry. I think there are two kinds of content here that people will find interesting:
  • Paper-based Productivity Tools – You’ll find popular PDF downloads like the Emergent Task Planner in the Productivity Tools section. They grew out of experiments designed provide clarity on my project challenge without a lot of tedious data entry.
  • Personal Development for Nerdy Creatives – For people discovering their own creative potential, I offer my own untidy journey for comparative reading. My blog archives are categorized by interest, and I try to provide takeaway points at the end of each article. Also check out the Investigations menu, where I document some of the larger challenges I’ve made for myself.
I believe that by sharing my experiences, others who are on the same path are heartened to know they aren’t alone. I know this is true because others have helped me in this very same way; this is my way of paying it forward.


Recent News and Posts

I’m on a reduced blogging schedule until I rebuild this website as a research notebook/catalog of amusing things. However, I am still posting Groundhog Day Resolution reports here along with the occasional announcement. My daily writing has shifted to our virtual coworking space and I’m also experimenting with video status updates.

Virtual Coworking

I’ve been experimenting with running a “virtual work space” online where people like me–nerdy, positive-minded folk of a curious nature–can hang-out and share our working experience during the day.
  • The co-working chatroom is organized to provide the “level of distraction” you need, from “quiet typing noises” to “noisy office”.It’s an eclectic group of people who have chosen to work together in a supportive (and not entirely serious) environment. I’m really happy how it’s become like a small coffeeshop with a handful of regulars from around the world.
  • I also stream my actual work sessions on YouTube. I’m told they’re nice “background noise” for people who want the feeling of someone else working in the room with them.

About Dave

Professionally, I apply video game technology to learning software and installations in addition to creating productivity tools to print at home or buy at Amazon.

For a more detailed picture of me, skim the categories of the massive blog archives, listen to the podcast, and check out the virtual coworking page! Interviewers, please contact me directly for access to the press kit.
