Hosted by Don Lehman, Core77's podcast series is designed for all those times you're sketching, working in the shop, or just looking for inspiration from inspiring people. We'll have conversations with interesting creatives and regular guests. The viewpoint of Afterschool will come from industrial design, but the focus will be on all types of creativity: Graphic design, storytelling, architecture, cooking, illustration, branding, materials, business, research... anything that could enrich your thought process, we'll talk about.
Brooklyn-based design firm Pensa, is helping to pioneer the movement for consultancies to bring their own projects to market. Earlier this summer they partnered with Goal Zero and AT&T to develop Street Charge, a solar powered charging station that can be easily installed in public spaces. Today I talk with two of Pensa's partners: Marco Perry and Mark Prommel, about their new project—the DIWire, a desktop wire bender that launched today on Kickstarter.
