From the Curator 😎💻
Yo, What's up! Joseph here
What's up everyone! It’s almost Friday! Congrats on opening another email, you did it! 😉 Now let's just hope you don't regret this one like you did the last few... This week has been rolling along pretty fast! Started the week with a bunch of strict deadlines which means longer hours. You know how that goes already so let's jump into the content!

Video of the Week 🎥
Last week I posted a video about creating an architecture portfolio with Google Slides. It's geared to the high school student looking to put together their first portfolio for college or a new designer who needs just a little bit of direction and support in creating their portfolio. Well, do me a favor and watch it, smash the like, and subscribe because the analytics of the video have been horrible 😅 lol
Article of the Week 📚
You're probably sick of hearing about NFTs by now but if you think NFT stands for "Network For Trees" (wtf.. I swear I don't know how I come up with some things..) then let me be the first to introduce you to Non-Fungible Tokens.
NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are unique and distinct bitcoin assets. While one Bitcoin is identical to and interchangeable with another, each NFT is unique, with distinguishing metadata and identification codes. NFTs are certificates of authenticity, using a string of characters to prove ownership and legitimacy.
NFTs can be anything digital, from the new Kings of Leon album to Jack Dorsey’s first tweet to NBA highlights to digital artist Beeple’s compilation of daily art creations over the course of 13.5 years.
In this case, we have someone who just sold the "Mars House," a purely digital model of a house that can be accessed through 3d/BIM software for half a million dollars. wow... 😪 and I'm just trying to sell you a portfolio and Notion template for $10.. Link below 😜
Anyways! The reason why I bring this up is because I actually had a conversation a few weeks ago with other designers about how we as architects can leverage this idea of NFTs and sell off our "failed" ideas. This is the point where things get super theoretical but imagine making more money as an architecture firm by selling digital 3d models of architecture rather than actually designing and getting a building built! Let that sink in for a bit.. digital real estate is currently skyrocketing because of the invention of NFT's and people can now own a 3d house in a future 3d world we MAY live in. I emphasize the word "may" because who knows what the future holds! Who knows what we can actually do with NFT artwork or architecture in the next year or so.
If you can sell or buy one NFT, what would it be?
I'd love to be the house plant NFT kingpin. Like everyone comes to my NFT shop and buys house plants from me, super rare and limited releases of my digital versions of house plants. Sounds pretty cool if you ask me..
Resource of the Week 🔗
Some of you asked so I’m delivering!!
Last week’s newsletter really resonated with a few of you awesome readers and I wanted to make sure I keep that up. I mentioned opening up my Notion Idea Hatcher template for you all to use and now you can get the download! I set the price at $3 USD but for all of my loyal readers, I created the discount code Newsletter so that you can get it for free! So head over to the link below and get your mind right!
Also! After you download the Hatcher and become a Notion master, I don’t want y’all to forget about the Notion Portfolio Website template that I have up on the store as well. It’s a really simple template that you can duplicate, drop your images in, and start sharing as your online portfolio!
I'll be back next week, same time, same place! 💪🏽
