“Today we are joined by Stanley Hainsworth’s hair, and, by extension, Stanley Hainsworth himself.”
Stanley Hainsworth, if taken by his past works, could easily be described as a genius of design (take those stints creative-directing companies like Nike, Lego, and Starbucks for the past 20 years, for example). But when you add in his uncanny appearance, you know you must call him a mad genius! Not that he’s unpleasant, by any means. Stanley is in fact quite nice, and as it happens very forthcoming about his work.
What really makes this show shine was the interview took place about one month after Stanley Hainsworth left Starbucks to begin his own creative endeavor, Tether, which you can find out all about at www.tethercreate.com, and we kindly persuade Mr. Hainsworth to spill the proverbial beans on the project. Enjoy.
Although we’ve gotten ear-fulls about the design of our site — what I would describe as “grace beyond compare” — our friends over at HOW have informed us they are getting ready to celebrate the next crop of fantastic interactive design outside of just us. The deadline for entries is July 15. I’m not entirely sure, based on the HOW website, if they’ve done this since 2006, since that’s the last gallery of winners they have available, and it’s kind of rough to flip through, honestly. So I think I’ll take a moment to point out a similar online gallery that really excels, and leave the comparison-drawing to whom it may concern.
Read on for the official word from HOW.
Bernard Uy (of Wall to Wall Studios) is the kind of guy you can’t help but love when you meet. Charming, friendly, funny, and endlessly intelligent. And please don’t take this show’s cover illustration as a play on his ability to convince his partner to open a second office in Honolulu — and that he should staff it — the man has mad ukulele skills. We talk shop in the beginning, but this episode is really about AIGA Honolulu’s big push for sustainable design: DesignFootprint.org, which leads into our best examination yet of going green in your work. Because when your specialty paper needs to be shipped halfway across the Pacific Ocean, well, I guess you think about those kinds of things.
As friends of 36 Point, we’d like to bring your attention to our newest endeavor:
Like Colors is a t-shirt competition — a concerted effort to assemble the finest in contemporary t-shirt design. The results will be published in an upcoming book of the same title. It’s free to enter and open to everyone. The deadline for submissions is 15 August 2008.
Call for entries and additional information is available at likecolors.oxidedesign.com
Feel free to enter early and often, and spread the word around the globe. Thanks for your support!
