Be nice. Or else.
Big Kahuna at Lumi Joined over 4 years ago via an invitation from Allan G.
I listen to a fairly broad selection across business, design, tech, politics, comedy, etc. Some of my favorites:
I also host a design/business podcast called Well Made.
Oh you weren't asking us to ask you "Anything?"? If you're opening it up to anything we might want to ask, I suppose my question is whether you want to ask me anything? I'm open to any questions you might have.
I've rarely seen a redesign that had such an overwhelmingly positive response as Ugmonk's. If the customers are happy, and those customers also happen to be designers, then I think we can agree that it was a successful redesign.
There is plenty of thoughtful criticism within the design industry. Go read Armin Vit at Brand New for example. He does an excellent job dissecting the good and bad without resorting to inflammatory remarks. There is an expectation of decorum and intellectual rigor that comes with labelling yourself a "critic".
I was lucky to see a sneak peek of the new logo and designs, as we (Lumi) helped manufacture the new packaging. There is so much thought throughout the whole identity system. Jeff has done an amazing job making it cohesive across print and web.
Thanks! Let me know what you think :)
I'm excited to share this project I have been working on. It's a new podcast called Well Made that explores the intersection of design and business. Over the episodes we'll delve into practical discussions about typography, packaging, manufacturing, etc. The first two episodes are with Jeff Veen and Tobias Frere Jones!
Would love to hear your feedback.
Good woah, or bad woah? We'll always be trying to push that number down without compromising quality or price :)
Neat! Thanks for the feedback. The wax seals definitely provide a premium look, seems like it could be a good fit for you :)
We've been hard at work adding more custom products to Lumi. This is a big one. People have been requesting boxes since we launched a year ago.
I'd love to hear your feedback on them! Also try the editor: https://www.lumi.com/make/editor?build=4127814182
