John Henry Müller is definitely a household name in the Omaha Design community. His involvement with such things as Big Omaha, The Mastercraft Building and the I Live in Omaha project are simply legendary around these parts. So when the news hit the presses that John’s famous web-shop “What Cheer” would be leaving the world of client work, and entering fully into the startup world – we at 36point knew we needed the inside scoop.
Turns out that John, along with his buddies Alex Gates and John Hobbes are gonna be taking the helm of a dog-enthusiast related start-up called PACK, based in San Francisco. (In fact, since this podcast was recorded – Mr. Müller announced, perhaps, the biggest news of all: he’s actually moving to San Francisco! Read his announcement HERE.)
Undoubtedly, Omaha is gonna miss this pillar of creativity and innovation – but if we know anything about John, we have not seen the last of him and his influence here in the Silicon Prairie. Please enjoy this light-hearted and candid interview with a pretty swell guy.
When I first heard that world-renown “Drawsigner” and long-time RBS friend, Von Glitschka was starting to charge 5 dollars for custom logos – I did a double-take. “How could this be?” Then I saw what he called this new design product: “5ive Minute Logo“. Brilliant. Donovan and I could instantly see what Von was doing: poking fun at some of the online “logo mills”, showing-off some of his amazing creative abilities, and having a heck of a lot of fun doing so.
After his keynote speech at Meet the Pros 2013, Donovan and I kidnapped Von and interviewed him in our secret design lair. Tune in to this week’s podcast to hear more about 5ive Minute Logos, logo mills, Meet the Pros and Von’s awesome design books.
