We're already super pumped about non-object's ID efforts and its new book, "non-object" (design fiction), which we hollered about last week. Wired's posted an interview with non-object author/co-founder/partner/designer Branko Lukic, a former lead designer at both frogdesign and IDEO and consultant to high-profile clients such as Nike, Intel, Pepsi, Starbucks, and Ford.
Success as a designer does matter. It helps credibility, in who is going to listen to you, and what you have to say. But design today struggles. In a time when we have so many advanced tools to make almost anything, design became very diffused. That was another big influence, why I started to develop the nonobject "thought." If I can achieve the level of excitement in designs I create, on the same level as how you feel after watching a great movie, than I've accomplished my goal. It is a difficult mountain to navigate, but nothing is impossible.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
