Why we love him…because he’s sweeter than candy. I have had the pleasure of not only seeing him speak about his company twice, but also bumping into him and chatting him up, the experience was just as magnifying as seeing him on stage (no-groupie here) but he was genuine, it was like bumping into an old friend…and old friend who real-story squirted me with fake ketchup.

Johnny, thank you for keeping honest and true to your fans, thank you for sharing your story and inspiring and helping other living out their dreams. I feel like you this generations FORD. For a “non educated business man” you truely wrote the book.

NORDIC WARE

 Why we love this company? Nordic Ware is one of the few remaining American cookware companies that produce their products almost entirely in the United States. Based out of the good old midwest, they introduced the Bundt Cake pan in the 50s and have been paving the way ever since to awesome, fun, innovative, quality can pans.  Not only do they pans rock with the greatest designs ever they also sponsor “Bundts Across America”, so the next time your at TARJAY (Target) remeber…Made in America…Nordicware!!!

HILLMAN CURTIS

Why we love  him? Because he has the ability to capture exactly how we feel on film.

I remember being a freshman in college, fringing between my love of architecture and my talent for painting.

One night i got an email that changed the course of my destiny. It was a link to Milton Glaser by Hilman Curtis.

HilLman Curtis short film series about designers/painters/typographers has single handedly changed a generation.

Tears rolled down my cheeks as i watched frame by frame how i felt inside, two strangers, one silently capturing what the other had to say.

From that moment on I had the clarity…”I want to do exactly that” and never look back again.

Architecture + Art = Graphic Design (my happiness)

MICHEAL BEIRUT

Why we love him? where do i start…his amazing lisp? or his witty charm?

Or maybe the fact that to be the best you must surround yourself with the best

(after all 10yrs working with the Vignelli’s and 10+ as a partner at Pentagram).

I consider him the bridge between what the medium of graphic design was to how the medium has evolved.
