In fact, the 70-year-old doesn’t plan on retiring at all. Consider the following the rules according to Spiekermann, a primer on design, entrepreneurship, business, culture, and aging gracefully, as told through his stories.
Erik Spiekermann insists he’s retired, that his whirlwind schedule and backlog of projects is all just a hobby. One day he’s in his hometown of Berlin, where he’s currently overseeing his experimental letterpress workshop, galerie p98a.The next he’s off to San Francisco, where Edenspiekermann, the digital branding and product company he founded, has an office.

Then it’s on to Los Angeles for a presentation at the Art Center of Los Angeles, before flying across the country to speak at the Type Directors Club in New York City. He spends the next day in Manhattan – a Saturday – taking meetings beginning at 9:30 a.m. to plan future endeavors, rather than kicking back.

No one likes dealing with problems. They force us to take a detour away from what we really want to accomplish while we stop and untangle them. But here’s the thing about problems – they’re the genesis for good ideas. They provide the opening for solutions, which in turn give you a leg up on your career. The stronger your fundamentals and core competencies are, the better position you put yourself in when you make your moves, whether it’s a play for new business or showing how your designs provide value far beyond the aesthetic layer.

Admittedly, this is a lofty, nuanced question. And it insinuates that something is broken. Nothing is broken here, but there is always room for improvement. Like, is design too indulgent for its own good? Or maybe designers have trouble conveying their importance to clients? Or there is a lack of diversity within the industry? We gave our subjects free rein to go in whatever direction they deemed to be the most troubling, so you’ll see all of these topics and more covered in the following responses. The feedback provides a chance for self-reflection, to see if you’re guilty of any of them, while also serving as an ongoing checklist to make sure you’re doing everything you can to be at your best.

AIGA Medalist Sean Adams and Norwegian designer and educator Rachel Troye have both had prolific careers in the design and branding industries, running their own successful studios in very different cultures and climates (Adams lives in Los Angeles). In spite of achieving international renown, both have shelved their studios indefinitely to take up the mantle of teaching, Adams at ArtCenter College of Design, and Troye at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, putting personal success to one side in service to the next generation of young creatives.

While united by all of the above, there are clear differences between their outlooks on education, attitudes towards their current crop of students, and more clearly the geopolitical landscape of their respective nations. What separates U.S. students from their Norwegian counterparts, how robust are the respective creative industries, and just what is the benefit of asking novice designers to make a poster that offends their whole class? Adams and Troye have those compelling answers and more.

In Design to Grow, a Coca-Cola senior executive shares both the successes and failures of one of the world’s largest companies as it learns to use design to be both agile and big.

In this rare and unprecedented behind-the-scenes look, David Butler and senior Fast Company editor, Linda Tischler, use plain language and easy-to-understand case studies to show how this works at Coca-Cola-and how other companies can use the same approach to grow their business.
Read more

“Big and fast, complex and focused, large scale and agile. These seem like oxymorons in the world of business innovation,” commented Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO. “Using examples from the history of Coca-Cola, David Butler and Linda Tischler show how it is possible to embrace these tensions through the use of design. Reading Design to Grow has caused me to think differently about my company. I am confident it will do the same for how you think about yours.”

Butler and Tischler use a variety of case studies both inside and outside Coke-including BlackBerry and iPhone, Kodak’s market stumbles, Lego bricks, and Healthcare.gov-to illustrate clearly why we need to change how we think about “design”. They tap into current business trends of “disruptive innovation” and the “lean startup” movement, and they elucidate why truly good design goes far beyond eye-catching packaging and colorful commercials.

Read more

Leonhardt will help explore negotiating as a collaboration in which creatives guide those they are negotiating with. Students will learn how to use time and context to define opportunities, create contracts instead of proposals, and align people with their vision. “Creatives are vastly underpaid, vastly undervalued for what they contribute,” explains Leonhardt, “what I’ve learned is that knowing the value of your expertise and how to leverage it is the most powerful foundation for negotiating a great deal with anybody.”

Fritz Kahn was a German doctor, educator, popular science writer, and information graphics pioneer whose brilliant work has all but fallen into oblivion.

It’s Not Easy Being Green: Two Designers Exploring Sustainability Worldwide is a new publication by Aart van Bezooyen and Paula Rache that brings together six months of making new friends, photographing local impressions and collecting materials. Together with almost 60 designers, entrepreneurs and change-makers from Brazil, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Malaysia and Japan they are sharing personal experiences, project examples and local culture to inspire and enable a more sustainable future.

Aart and Paula started the project in 2011 to get a better understanding of the fuzzy concept of sustainability and its role and importance for design. During 184 days, they were exploring a dozen countries to discover sustainable solutions in materials and design worldwide. During their journey they offered inspiring lectures and hands-on workshops to teach and learn about the local issues and practices of designers.

“The book is a MUST for everybody who considers herself or himself a designer of the future,” commented Zuzanna Skalska, a recognized trend researcher who is one of the first readers. With this book Aart and Paula are bringing together the people, places and things they discovered during their travels to share their experiences. Personal contributions from the designers, entrepreneurs and change-makers they met are combined with local impressions and inspiring items discovered along their way. With designers making skateboards out of bamboo, researchers improving packaging products, children doing green studies in the jungle and surprising ways of (re)using materials, this book is an encouraging sustainable snapshot of what is happening in the world today.

Proceeds from the book will go to the Viva con Agua, a charity organization that supports people with clean drinking water worldwide.

BBMG has recently released a new white paper titled “Disrupt & Delight: Five Principles for Sustainable Brand Innovation.” The booklet leverages BBMG’s recent experience helping clients embed sustainability into the branding and marketing functions to create shared value.

In addition to sharing best practices, it offers a robust, multi-dimensional framework for defining sustainable brand innovation.

Our world today is defined by more scarcity, complexity and speed, as well as more creativity, innovation and participation.

Read more

Against this backdrop of “radical contradiction,” the booklet explores several fundamental and exciting questions: How might we design new business models driven by more than just consumption? How might we re-invent whole systems in ways that make the limits of the status quo obsolete? How might we create more happiness and a better quality of life for more people even as our economy shifts to meet nature’s limits?

Disrupt & Delight illustrates how some of today’s most forward-thinking brands are addressing these challenges.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who is part of George Gabin’s – Student Retrospective Fundraiser. Over the past week we’ve collected a total of 65 pieces of original artwork and creative from over 50 exceptionally talented artists. The show has been hung with care and you’ll leave awestruck thanks to the talents of Debra Olin and Greg Kitterle.

Sunday, December 4th is the last day of the show which is an initiative and fundraiser to celebrate a master, a mentor and a friend to many. The show/Open House opens at 12:00pm and the Reception will begin at 2:00pm where the culinary talents of Crystal Paris Brown will be revealed. Although the show ends at 5:00pm I hope to extend the offerings online by posting all the work with additional details to follow.

We hope to have George downstairs to the Gallery between the times of 3:00 – 3:30pm. Please try to be punctual and relax with refreshments and fantastic finger foods that will be available at your leisure. I’ve also created a looping slideshow of images paced with music that will give you a sneak preview to George’s show in February at the Chase Young Gallery. Next to the slideshow will be a book to write something special that you’d like to share with George.

If you were able to contribute to the show please try to be present when the reception closes at 5:00pm so you can depart with your artwork if it hasn’t sold. If you can’t be present I’ll store the artwork at my home until we can arrange a day/time to get together.

Thank you again and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at the show.

Sincerely,

Michael.
