Why The 90's Was The Decade Of The SuperCar
"To pass gas. I'm your host known sites trying to always by james pump. Frey hello there. Everyone it is i james and not an pasta and joe weber. What's up wink wink nation. I'm here for you. And i am fired up and as as the boys have been Saying we are talking about ninety supercars today on this episode. We were talking before we started. Recording i think like we're a little bias as far as the nineties. Being the greatest time for supercars that's like saying like the nineties is the best time for cartoons. Yes because that's when joe and i grew up at least win win. Did you grow knowing how old a year you're six years six years old Yeah i mean born in ninety three so like my k- yeah you're the first time when you realize supercars where thing was in the nineties. I sure i heard third eye blind on the radio is what you're saying about three eleven. Her three eleven to okay got it. So like like the diablo's the labor gyn machines. Those are big big parts of your formative years for sure. Yeah now supercars are a lot more prevalent. Yeah i feel like within the last ten years like it's blew up again. But i feel like the nineties really set the president the president the president and showed what was possible and kind of like blew the whole supercar thing out of the water because we had just come out of the malays era and people were like. I want something fast and flashy and purple and green are really cool right now so. Let's just make cars like debt for sure. And i think you know from the sixties to the eighties like cars. That would be considered supercars today. I mean there are just called sports cars you know. Yeah 'cause they were. They were really fast. Yeah not the ninety s great supercars because it literally defined that genre. That's when he started seeing like dance materials carbon fiber the. That's it that's it really for me only carbon-fiber that's the only qualifier. I think we should just get right into it. Yeah let's go. let's go so so. How did we get to the nineties. Being the definitive era of supercars the term supercar itself isn't really official it. Roughly describes a high performance. Luxury or exotic. Sports car generally a two seater with at least an eight cylinder engine. Although that'll probably change here the trend towards these vehicles started as far back as the sixties when detroit started shoehorning big block. v8's into sedans and turning the results loose on the american public and of course we know those as muscle cars across the atlantic european manufacturers were also busy refining. their lightweight. sports cars what. These smaller cars lacked in displacement and seating they made up for easily in handling and driveability as a sixties turned into the seventies. Those massive motors became liabilities with the looming gas crisis and clean air act of nineteen seventy then the second oil crisis in nineteen seventy nine. The industry yet again. An american cars continued to get smaller and more efficient manufacturers in the. Us knew they had to do something. So they're carburetors. Were replaced by fuel injection and distributors being swapped for coil packs. But we weren't there yet after all the one thousand nine hundred. Five corvette made her on the same horse. Power as a well-equipped twenty twenty. Camry the so-called malays era when autos reached a low point of reliability and performance was in full swing. New emissions equipment was starving the motors of their power. And even in the instances where these new cars had style. The eighty-five corvette being a prime example was under. The hood didn't match up that being said the eighties were still an impressive decade for supercars. Just not in the united states. American consumers still reeling from the death of the muscle car scene started looking abroad for inspiring performance. Every decade is a reaction to the one that came before in the eighties shoved back. The seventies with an absolute explosion of high performance supercars a handful of imported performance. Cars like the lamborghini coon tash for testarossa and the lotus esprit were blowing enthusiasts minds and with the stock market. Looking like pikes peak. There were selling faster than cocaine in wall. Street bathrooms by the nineties. A lot of that pesky emissions tech that was thrust on manufacturers was starting to get smarter as we're onboard computers and fuel injectors the progressing technology let engines breathe better and pass their gases in ways. That didn't starve the performance. Nice if you if you like stories like this check out. Our podcast passed gas. Celebrities enrich folks. Were having a hard time justifying spending big bucks on stiff bucket seats and jarring track suspension setups and manufacturers took the hint burr example lamborghini spent the late eighties upgrading. The coon tauch into the diablo. The coon tosh is often derided for having a borderline unusable only tight interior that overheats quickly so they lengthened diablo to improve the comfort ability in the cabin.

‘Tosh.0’ to End After 12 Seasons at Comedy Central
"Point. Oh, coming to an end the show wrapping after its upcoming Twelfth Season Daniel Tosh just signed a four season deal with comedy central back in January. So not sure if he's going to remain with the network season twelve of top debut. September fifteenth on Comedy Central. Did anybody else like, kind of raised eyebrows. When you heard that he just got a four season extension was going to go through sixteen seasons of tosh boy. No I didn't even know it was still there. I lost track of Tauch. I've actually been wondering where he is like just in terms of doing stand up because you just haven't heard his name as much. As I cannot believe that that show has been going on that long. That's crazy. He was so smart about that whole ride though he knew it was going to come to an end and he just went out and did a ton of standup shows around centered around the success of that show and banked a ton of money. 'cause you knew it was gonNA come to a narrow eventually. It just was a format that. You can go on twitter and see a million different comics doing the same thing. Every single day now. So I I still thought their writers were good. It was super edgy and it was I. thought that was hilarious.

"There's as long as you leave something and bring something new and don't take away something they recognize but provide something more exciting. They'll go with you and if you can bring the people that love the brand the people that love Budweiser people that love Dunkin and then bring new people to the world. That's great that's the Best Tasha. Have Two last questions for you. I I understand that you are listed on the patents for two hair treatment products. You worried about losing your hair you know this is. This is amazing. Things I have my grandfather has many patents. He has since passed away but he was in weights and measures and worked worked for Toledo scale and he has a book of like eight hundred patents for like weighing things small and large and I was so proud. When he's still alive I was like I have two patents for procter and gamble? We'll company One of them is. They're both hilarious ways to apply diet to your hair. One is root touch up and one is perfect ten and so I sold my patent to PG for dollar and what did your grandfather think of that He said to is good. Mastered Okay and my last question. I understand that you love motorcycles. And you've described the Harley Davidson soft tail as the archetypical motorcycle recycle. But I've discovered motorcycle race results. Wherein you placed on a Kawasaki? Yeah so what do you ride today in. Are you still racing. I wish I was still racing though. I haven't haven't raced in probably five years when the race. I raced a Kawasaki and I raised Suzuki Harley. Davidson is of course. One one of the icons of motorcycle brands not the best to race. How come there's not race bikes? There was he said that like I should now. I've been on a motorcycle once in my entire life and screamed the entire time there. Cruiser bike instead of sort of race bike. So you know you're cruising around you know like like easy rider versus the race bikes where you're full leathers and putting your knee on the ground. which is a bit crazy? There are few bucket list things to do. And if I could rebrand Do coty because I have cutting I love it. They've been rebranded yalies identity. I think from the nineties. The type is still there but his mark is gone. They replace it with the guitar picked Puffy and has kind of a three D. vibe to it which is not awesome by could work into Coty. That'd be great great also following the great work that nearly did a loving hands on American Airlines. I have to do that to Tosh..

"I didn't WANNA worked for a giant conglomerate. I didn't WanNa work for Agency owned by an agency owned by holding group. Because I didn't think it could create freedom and creativity. I couldn't support the team team I wanted. I couldn't bring in the creativity I wanted to bring. And I respect that people that have started their own agencies that had hung their shingle out. That had gone off to create something new and also. I thought I'd learned enough and so resigned to see all the time and moved to Oakland because cheaper there and took an intern learn and did my own work for about eighteen months. And then you realize you need people around you that are not just interns and it's also probably not a great business strategy to just I do. Pro Bono work and someone else. I was cleansing as cleansing myself from seven years of big branding and WanNa do you know. Cool things for nonprofit school thanks for cultural institutions. Interesting design only. Follow your passion projects but then it was time to do something. Actually one of my design directors that I work twice came and visited me in Oakland. He's like do you really think you're you're living your best life. I'm again I'm making more money and more awards. I'm racing motorcycles. All the time. And he's like no you're not you're sitting your underpants sign and posters and no one ever sees or cares about. Shouldn't you be at an agency doing real things leading people creating brands that people see if you're right and so I've been swearing off. All these recruiters are trying to do this. And that and the other and one recruiter kept calling me for like a long time and that if you just got the founder L. Elam and so scripted from his house He was in the south of France and I told him I like their work from the late. Ninety S Cool I. I saw some of that stuff when I was in England. I'm not looking for a job but it was nice to have a conversation and I don't think anyone had ever talked to him like that because I really didn't want the job which is weird because to date. I'd always want to delve a jobs and with this I said no and he said just go meet the MD.. MM D of New York and if you meet her we'll leave you alone and so I met her. I said hey this could be something special now. Her was the the only person in the New York firm correct at the time. I think there were a few more but yes our hyman was the MD of New York and we were well they at the time or in a tiny offs on Wooster Street and I was one of many creative directors to be interviewed. And she said you know Tick Tock directors to see and I said what do you WanNa see my book. And she's like I've seen it and she said what he wanted to talk about and she's ambition and so we talked about what we wanted to create and ended up drinking budweiser about three hours and Budweiser was the first real. Oh brief that was coming. May Long Story Short. I woke up with a hangover and a job. So how big was the New York office when you started three or four people. Oh maybe eight ten twelve but you know and ensuing months. We went smaller and and brought friends from California. It's been seven years the big as it now in New York it's over one hundred London's grown two hundred and fifty. We've opened offices. In Singapore and Shanghai three hundred worldwide. Say Doing Pretty Well Tajiks. It's pretty good. How did you go that building the business? It started with an desire to build something. The reason why lenders wanted to help create a firm I wanted to create my own firm. This is an opportunity to do it with a company that had been around at that time for twenty four years and had a great reputation. Some people have asked me. How did we do so well in New New York and I'd put it down to three things we had real opportunity I briefly had was budweiser? The second briefly had was wheaties. I had the best talent I've ever worked with. So I was able to recruit people from California which I talked to them before I even accepted the job because I knew I would need. Great thinkers great designers to do it. We wanted to do and the third thing is we have freedom and so I didn't have at a company that was held by Holding Group was real freedom to make choices and to kind kind of hire and fire to go after business wanted to go after to do. We wanted to do and so the ability to combine those three things I think is what really started us off and has proven proven to be successful. You work with both big brands and new brands brands. That are small. The different approaches for different sized brands. I think we've made a lot of in the past seven years we've treated small startup brands like giant multinational brands like Budweiser and that never works. I think when you work with entrepreneurs when you start brands especially the founders. They WANNA move fast fast fast so figure out other ways to work doing startups completely different than we do. Big Brands for for sure. But I think both of them play by the same rules. You gotTa have a great idea. You GotTa make sure you manage your brands equity even if you're creating it needed to think that it'll be around for longer than a hot second second. And then how do you make it relevant to the world and to stand you. Describe your work by explaining that you are part doctors and part boy scouts. Why boy scouts like many of the men in my family? It's required that you're an eagle scout. And so finally all makes sense. In retrospect my Eagle Scout Project project was typography for trail maps so I mapped the trails I did for the way finding for the trails. Did the sign edge. Did all the posters but anyway the point and being a boy scout is I was an eagle scout. And what they say when you're camping is always leave the camps better than founded doctors. I'm not a doctor but I've always liked the idea of the hippocratic oath. which is do no harm? So imagine. If you're in the world of branding Lebron better than you found it and do no harm and so I think again a lot of cases that you've seen in the last twenty years in our field. People have not applied those rules and they really can damage brands so doctors boy-scouts you've said that your biggest obstacle in designing for brands or with brands was. How do you change everything and change nothing? Can you elaborate over. Oh for sure like it was much harder than we anticipated to do. The Budweiser work. which seem so easy? Well no it doesn't. Why would you say that? It's obvious the solution is a beautiful label. The label has been in the Cultural Zeitgeist. One hundred fifty years. It used to be done by hand. The advertising campaign talks about being brewed. The hard way way he talks about thirty days how long it takes to brew it talks about how the most expensive and the biggest but the design is terrible. The execution is it's not crafted. It's not done by people who care about the typography people that care about the brand people that agonize over the details and so we should design the hard way. So if you're GONNA abruzzi hardware design it. The hard way the trick is how do you make it so that the people that have loved it for years still see their brand but then how do you change everything in a way that it feels relevant today today and then if it's even better if you can change all the words to something else so that you don't even read it anymore. How did you do it? We pitched that to them for three years. And we had some brave clients and they finally said yes and so we we did all the budweiser work. Fix the Beautiful in crafting all the details making a beautiful look and feel and then for summer one year we changed all the words and there's like fourteen pieces of bespoke type. It's all beautifully crafted and done. We change it all to America because there's nothing more American Budweiser had you persuade clients to do things. They may be afraid of are resistant to but you know that it's the right thing thing for them to do like why. Keep pushing for three years. They used to give us brief. That said please stop using work from previous presentations and there was a section dedicated in the back called Tosh land that would just put in the same work and we would answer their brief. Give them what they said they needed. Show them all the requests and and finally get to. But if you really want to do what you WANNA do. Here's the answer and I just did it in a much better way many many years later so as to get right to the edge of being fired or or fired a couple of times and rehired but in the end. Persistence keep ongoing. I just believed it was right. Hell hard is it to redesign a rick recognizable brand in this day and age with so much online criticism. That seems to happen. The moment you launch a redesign I I mean this is started in fifteen years ago. Oh Yeah I remember very distinctly and it's it's instant I mean. What are the gap logo lasted for? What three today's a weekend Tropicana lasted for what six weeks and there has been a time in the last decade where everyone is afraid that anything they do? The changes the brand at all will damage equity consumers will leave them the lose business. So how in the world can you make any progress brand. Anything that's avant-garde everything that's new and different print when the clients are afraid. That's the that's the hardest trick and we're not always successful. Sometimes we work forever and the client still refused to make changes we have built that respect respect incrementally I think and we've also done new ways to test things out so you do things in small increments you test and learn you put things democracy they do but really it comes down to gaining trusted your clients and moving in that direction even though it becomes scary the best clients are the ones that green light things without things like Peres testing without things that makes them feel more comfortable because they feel it and they believe in it on just launch it and it is scary at first because sometimes they the negative reaction is palpable. Or you might have seen we help Dunkin donuts drop the donuts after many years the client it was their idea. They wanted to do it and they've been afraid probably for at least a decade and and they launched a test store just to test it out in Boston and I'm not sure how familiar with Boston. Boston is not known to hide his criticism for the things that they love and they love abducted donuts yeah. I don't even know that there is a starbucks and turn left at the at the dunkin' turn right at the Dunkin' and you'll get there it's incredible the feedback was so pour it was hated. The launch of the store was hated. The dropping of the donuts was hated. Everyone hated it and the good news is we had a client in that case. That knew it was right. It was going to power through the criticism so a lot of times. Use the wait it out and also our job is to change the conversation all the press that was leaked Don. It was negative. Drop the taking wear my doughnuts and what we did was just changing at lunch to go on a first name basis which is positive but how how are you able to persuade customers. It's one thing to have a fearless client. That's willing to take a chance. Somebody that's brave. That knows that big changes necessary. How do you get the consumer to feel okay about it? TURNS OUT TAKE Dunkin. For example the consumers I already called a Dunkin. They were already there with us. Often consumers are much further ahead than the people in the business anyway and they're less afraid and they want to adopt. Thanks a lot of the criticism criticism that comes I think and brain refreshes brand changes is from a inside baseball group of people that are criticizing each other most times consumers..

"How is your approach? Different trying to get the job the second time around. I made it much better portfolio and I made it for full of the work. I wanted to create not the work that I'd actually created so tell me about that. Why did you? What made you decide to do that? And what kind of work did you make. Well I left. The Revlon team moved out of the ELMES team a lot of freedom. It's a lot of really cool things. None of it ever went to market I one thing went to marquette once and I was on the cover of. Ww Women's wear daily. Not Me but the work that I had done and I but I have. I've made it I'm on. WW D and it was some intense. I color it was the shadow pencil and Mascara. After this is it and I just showed all the work that I got up to that I showed all the process all the thinking all the mood. Boards made beautiful little books and process books when I went for my review with the CD. Of have I said what can you do after you were medics. What's next you tell me about your career time about where I can go? He's once you've worked at Revlon. You can work anywhere. I was very excited. Because that's what I want like. Where like estee lauder? Oreo and I knew I had to quit. Wasn't for me. I wanted to be in a branding ending firm. I wanted to use a different things and learn from you. Know the best in the business like most things. In retrospect and make sense. You can't go from one to the other without connected acted work and so a lot of the work that I've done and cosmetics got me the job working on. PNG Beauty Atlanta New York. So I was hired by Chuck Ruth. It was very good creative director. Because he didn't want to work on the account anymore and so I was working on Clairol Nice and easy at the time. Brutal account that was rough legendarily. endearingly brutal It was cool though. I mean we wanted to do. We had a vision for Nice and easy being like fun and Alan White and they launched his new product called Nice and easy perfect ten and is going to be black and macro and beautiful and all the photographers got to work with her amazing. They fired me after nine months the client but luckily Landreau Chemi so when you get fired of an account you're essentially asked off the business and did how did you get. The News. Truck told me that I was not allowed to go back back because the client who asked never to see again. What did you do that? Prompted such a radical response to your work. I was probably pretty obstinate about what they should do. And the good news is they. Did it three years later. I was just too little too early to early on a little too inflexible about my opinions. Given how hard it was view to find employment in the business that you wanted to be in and then finally achieving that position at a firm that you really respected suspected. What gave you the confidence to be obstinate? It was the team the account team and the creative director working for brought me in and they said we need you to push-back we need you to raise the level of the quality of the work and I I took that to heart and I pushed the envelope a bit too hard. I hadn't learned any. Any skills and coping with clients is new. This was better than that. And I wouldn't bend of course. Plant will bend you and good news is I was able to stay and I moved onto to the account which is ever so slightly closer to cosmetics in terms of the preciousness of the kind of work that you're doing conjoint Moore who is much better. I learned a lot about structure and working with the guys in the model shop and industrial design. And so the idea that we could start to play with form and structure and glass and all the different details. It was also the heyday of high end spirits. And so you can do lots of really cool stuff and it was a higher static. It was less mass. You're able did you really good things at type and work with the best photographers industrial designers topographers illustrators. Eve admitted that before you got to lend or you really didn't understands branding over sure what revlon taught me was having taste it taught me kind of preciousness and preciseness and minimalism awesome and getting inspired with Landau taught me was branding and really brand equity so one of my very first e. CD's Richard Brandt he. He let me run pretty free and then would come at the Kriton. He would say you know you might want to do something closer. In what do you mean. He's like well. This Tequila brand been around for a hundred years. Here's how to round paper label. Everything you're doing looks like a perfume bottle you might want to try something closer. And that's a little bit closer. Their brand equities. He taught me that on smirnoff often on done. Julio that really kind of framed my reference on how to understand what brands are about how to respect their equities and not just throw them away for for the sake of style. which is what I was doing at the time? You went from working in production design which is very much implementing other designers work to in four years at land or becoming a creative director. How did you do that? Given how obstinate you were being asked off clients had do. How did you get ahead? I was always looking for opportunity and the best person was the accountant person. Because I was at the time I kind of knew my days were numbered and I wasn't really having a good time working on clairol. I wanted to push them further than they're willing to go. It was very hard. I talked to the Diario Account Director and I said do you need any help. What can I do and he knew? Of course there was. A project is about to fail. which is hilarious? It was smirnoff ice of all things and no one wanted to work incentivize and I was like I'll be happy to I will work on at night. I will do whatever I can to start working on. This account was the account I wanted to work on and and so I think it was seeing opportunities that others perhaps in WanNa take and trying to find a stepping stone to the next thing and then I had a you know a few pieces of good luck. What kept you trying for more? I have no idea in some ways designed I think and branding and creativity is a practice. It's a learned skill. And the more you practice in the heart of that you work the closest you'll get to where you want to go and I was never really happy with anything produced and so I needed to work and work and work and work and work mark. You have some particular advice for designers which comes from one of your favorite motorcycle racing formulas for winning and I'm wondering if you can share that because I was wondering as I was piecing together your history through my research if that particular formula was is what subconsciously unconsciously kept going. I don't know these have Evolved over time because I wasn't designing things. I really like motorcycles. I started like motorcycles. Even more I started to get into racing and you start a train and some of the same as designer creativity. You're trying to get better veteran better and better one of the things I like about it. Is You have to be comfortable being uncomfortable. The difference between first and last really just minor amount of seconds and you have to be comfortable last one percent attraction. What does that mean so a tire only has so much traction and everyone's expending all the tracks into goes fast as they can and it's the management of the edge of envelope? Either you crash and you do not finish first or you manage that edge of uncomfortableness and you finish first and and so a lot of what I learned. Not In design at all but in the racing did was to let go to be uncomfortable and not to hold on so tight. I think the first decade in my career I was holding on super tight because he wanted to achieve. You WANNA move forward. You want to create something that you think is great. And that whether uh-huh chievements you WanNa make and I think a lot of people. These days are focused on that. If they could only just be in the flow of what they're doing it will be easier to get their your experiences led you to believe the talent isn't everything. What else is required? I think it's the smallest thing. Talent is is maybe ten percent there are many many people that are more talented than me. Mostly it's about hard work. which is a kind of a silly thing to say because everyone has to work hard but if you work harder the talent is that you have? It'd be better off and also the last portion is just as luck. It's like being in the right place at the right time. Feinman that number six trend. I wouldn't admit Phil if it hadn't worked on Revlon I wouldn't've worked on clairol. Hadn't been working on Claro. I wouldn't the chance to work in. Asia hadn't been sitting at my desk randomly when my right. UCD sent me a note. Is there a crater. That wants to go to San Francisco and everyone moved to California and some ways. It's preparing yourself to all the hard work put being in the right place at the right time. Taking advantage of the opportunity. How do you define working hard? Because so many people think they work hard and if you find that working hard is one of the key criteria to success for anybody. That's listening to our interview. What can you tell someone about what it really means to work hard? The more. I've worked the more confident of become in my career decisions. I think in the very beginning it was exhausted all options. It was trying everything. It was working as hard as you could. It was seeking the answer that you couldn't find through intuition and working and working and working and doing it again and again and again and try to figure out your crafts and figure out the answer. The more that that you do that the more confident comfortably be become in your ability to find the answer but then you have to change it because then you're too comfortable and doing the same thing and so finding something that's different you can try to seek the answer again. I don't know I think it would be always looking always working harder. You're to find the answer. It's almost like a practice. It's repetition repetition repetition the more that you stretch the end of the edge of the comfort zone. You have to go again and again you said that you credit lander as your crash course in learning the rules. When did you decide? It was okay to start breaking them. I think that's a constant battle. I think we're always managing the rules. Because a lot of clients that we work for are are huge and the past decade has been a lot of publicized brand failures. And so how do you make sure that you're you're able to push the edge of the envelope but not lose people along the way I think. Sometimes we're able to do what's right by clients do as right by brands. Because perhaps we're we're on just a a continuum of hundreds of years of brand and you want to leave it better than you found it but also it's nice to do things that are a little more avant garde that pushed the edge of the envelope a bit so if if you've set up the rules if you've done the right thing by brand you've renovated then you have expected you left. Land or in two thousand and twelve and joined Jones. Owns knows Richie also known as J K are in twenty thirteen. What made you decide to do that? Well I was creative director California Ed San Francisco Landlords home. That was another great experience between working in New York as a design director and working at the home of land or in San Francisco which is like working to separate firms. It wasn't like the same company. It was a different experience different types of work a much bigger team and when I first got there I was terrified. I was the youngest creative director. I had more clients that I've ever had more people than it ever had. I arrived there another terrible time in two thousand eight and when I think the first piece of work I presented was the Daily Mirror's closed so it was a as a rough start to corporate branding but after four years and land or San Francisco..

"Pentagram was number one. I believe lander was number two. Who Else did you apply for jobs with our remember out of the top opt-in and basically I just looked at the print magazines who is either winning awards getting recognized in the regional annual? who had heard of who were branding firms out there? Top Ten doc twenty-five top fifty in house printers Kinko's tell us what happened. Why was it so difficult called for you? I think it was a tough time to look for a job in New York. I think that I felt like an outsider. I wasn't I didn't go to school. I didn't have any connections because I didn't go to. Sca I didn't really know how to do anything. I had some on the job. Experience working in printing book covers. You know I I thought chip kidd was has the coolest imitated as work. I hadn't found what my voice wasn't designing. Also I was just a little bit behind the curve so I went through all the places to try to find anyone anyone that would give me a chance. Why wouldn't Kinko's hire you? That was hilarious experience. Tell US seventy seventy second street and Broadway in New York. City is not gonNA break me. I'm going to find a job. I understand the actual quote was Fuck You New York. You're not going to break me. That was after I went in and said excuse me Sir. Can I have an application. and He. I said we're we're not. We're not accepting applications at this time. Can I speak to your manager. I am the manager and I think he was younger than me and I said can I have application. Anyway I'll l. fill it out and he said sure but we're not going to accept it as it. Just just give it to me. Give it to me. I walked outside. Broad daylight. Seventy second and Broadway burst into xeres crumpled in in in my fist through the trash and I did give New York City the bird and told New York City fuck off. It won't bring me. How did you eventually get a John? It costs money to use the alumni directory for some reason at that point so I use my girlfriend's logging and typed in for for the universe North Carolina Nineteen fifty to the present graphic design. And I got four. Hits Two of them were receptionists. I went to meet them and ask ask you know how how I could get my during they said well you can be the receptionist because I'm looking for my replacement and I considered it. One of them was an architecture firm and they had to work on. PC's sees so. I just refused. One of them was more interesting. What I said can I get into the design department? There's no we want you to answer phones. I said could I get into the design of permanent some point. No you're the receptionist. The third person I called was doing something loud and I had this whole terrible spiel. Hi I'm Josh North Carolina. I'm studying graphic design. I mean your city I want to be designer. Can can you help me. And he was doing something like moving or some loud noises. In the background he stopped what he's doing and said New York City is hard graphic designers. fucking harder good luck. Tuck Bang phone. Hung Up. Fourth person was the head of the studio revlon named Phil Li. And he's like sure come visit bring your portfolio. And so did I showed up. Go to this fifty-eighth Madison the big lipstick building revlon at its peak. Go there. I'm here to see Phil Li. He's not here today as a have an interview so I left went home called me. Sorry I was sick. Come back this is I think November maybe December. Two thousand one. He's like we're not hiring. You know in fact Ed people go but look at your book and I'll show you around his amazing experience they had full. CVS's full target walls. They were doing everything but advertising the display of the packaging. I've never done any packaging work and had a model shop. He was super nice to me. And he said you stay in touch same as Michael Beirut they say that but you never stand anti-itch months went by looking for work I went to the kind of recruiters dropped resumes tried to get jobs. Finally in December I got a job at Citibank actually at Salomon Smith Barney. I was like I'm finally using my econ degree instead. I was working in the basement. Taking Sandy Weill who was the CEO at the time of Citibank and cutting his press clippings and pacing them down. But I the throttle. My God. I've made it. I call him other and I said I made it. I have a job in New York City and I came home and it was like it had been an entire season of looking for work and finally had had a job. See Your job was to cut out articles about Sandy Weill and put them into a scrapbook. I first job in New York City. scrapbooking I was. I was working at a place. My other unheard of Citibank. I was working for the CEO working in New York City. Yeah it's amazing. When when I graduated I had no money and I was desperate to find a job so that I could stay in New York? I didn't WanNa go home to my mother in Queens. It was so hard at first to find a job that I actually started reconsidering my options and thought. Maybe I needed to go to school to learn to become a secretary which I started to do. I started to fill out an application to go to what was then called and I don't know if it still exists Katharine Gibbs Secretarial School. Because I was so desperate to get a job and I wasn't getting a job. My first job was designing the blowing cards. That you see in magazines but I was like I'm working at a magazine. I don't care what I'm doing working at a magazine. Blowing cards are really important. How did you end up getting being ahead? How long did you work at Citibank? Did you hang out with Sandy. WILL YOU INSANITY LATE MIGHTILY Monaco. No No I saw Sandy. Weill come out of his car and go into the building ones okay. I recognize them from other press so I knew he was my tenure. At Citibank was very short lived. I got back. Apparently people sometimes fire you on the first day back in January and I made the mistake and your first job like decorating my desk and so I had to take my firing box full of my plant my things and leave what you've got hired in December you got fired in January was not very good at cutting things out and placing them down but you were designer. How could you not be good at cutting and pasting? I think I had a bad attitude. What kind of bad attitude tardy probably snarky? I probably was not listening to whoever the senior paste up. Art Director was who knows it did not last but when you had to tell you fired from any time to come back North Carolina but I get fired first day back. I took the six train at rush hour. Because you know I'm going to do some retail therapy I'm GONNA go with my girlfriend to J. crew and spent some J. Crew Gift cards but have my firing box on the six train. Middle Rush Hour. WHO's in the train car? He recognizes me. Recognize him. He's like what are you doing. I'm like a change in my employment status. He's like obviously vice ice plant. What you've been up to? I'm like nothing he's like. I have a designer sick next week. Do you want to come in and I said absolutely and so I came in for three days. And he's like Thursday. We're done we don't need you. I waited two more weeks. He called me a couple of days and started showing up on Mondays. I showed up on the money that I didn't call you. I said but I'm here. What can I do and I was just an eager beaver and I just kept showing up and eventually he hired me? You just showed up. Yeah Yeah in the lobby. Hey Phil I'm here and he put you to work. Did he pay you. Wow so you worked and I believe he went into production wasn't I wasn't I wasn't in design. Department had to transition from the production department so I went from getting fired cutting paste up for Sandy Sandy Weill to thinking my way into a job as a junior production designer and then the production team got folded and feel pulled. Let me aside and said I got you an interview with one of the directors so I showed my work. They hired me as a designer. See you were at Revlon for three years. I was now going back to some of those Job Interviews at some of the agencies. I did that once too and when I got there I had to fill out a test I I had to do a test that they gave me and because all of my early education was at my school newspaper as well I realized took questions in that. I didn't know any of the answers to any of the questions. They were like. How many players in an inch and I was like what the Fuck Pica? I ran Out Crying 'cause I had no idea what they wanted me to be able to do and I was so ashamed of not knowing anything on the test test. We had no tests. I do remember the executive creative director of Revlon when I was a designer in the design Zayn Department required us all to use quirk express because at the time and is on it. Just come out. But they hadn't got it right and Cork Express handled type the best and that was it was those were those were the. Hey Days of Peter. Cognitive was concerned. I saw him like you. I'd learned on the school newspaper. I laid out covers and Cork Express and it was time to use that skill for making beautiful displays for inside of a Duane. reade laying type laying out the beautiful photographs of all the remodels. She comes over on a Friday afternoon and says why are using in design. I said because it's easier we're in LS ten. I have to go back to nine. Working Quirk Express. She said well. I told you we're GONNA quirks breasts. WanNa see fifteen asked Mario. I said Tar Saturday. She's like yeah. See at ten so that was my test is doing it all over again and over again and over again and being yelled at from an art directors then went to land or you went from Revlon to land or which was ironic given that land or was your second choice design firm when you initially moved to New York in your unsuccessful bid to work at a big design firm arm..
"tosh" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman
"Creative officer at the branding firm Jones Knowles Ritchie his portfolio uh-huh includes big name brands like Dunkin target and Budweiser and he's been named one of the fifty most creative people by advertising age but he didn't get into design and branding the typical way through art or design school which is probably one of the reasons he has such interesting things to say about design branding in our era of constant change Tosh Hall. Welcome to design matters drinks. W what is this the fifteenth year. I've been listening to you for fifteen years before even really got into branding. So what hat here exciting. Thank you TASHA. Understand that your creative life life began with crayons and a mother who indulged your desire to draw by covering the walls and the floors of your House House with paper so you could run wild and do what so. Many parents actually screaming at their kids not to do. What kinds of things were you making in drying and I have no idea? I'm sure terrible but instead of I think what most parents probably do. Is they smack your hand and they clean the wall when you draw they scream scream scream and instead for some reason the favorite place of mine was the art closet and so the closet was full of lots of different art. Lots of different supplies paint glitter glue. Your mother hadn't art closet our closet and so I'll go to the art closet takeout. Whatever I wanted draw not only on the walls but on the floor and and she kept them? All machine. Hippie should definitely was a hippie and what did he do for a living well at the time she was a creative to. She was a dancer the answer. She was going to school at Ohio State. Doing all kinds of interpretive hippie seventies dance stuff for ballet probably who knows what and then when I came along she left dance in the kind of creative way behind left dances a ballerina or some studying dance and then of course it's the eighty s and so. It's all about about aerobics. So she was like a little Jane Fonda of the South hadn't she. Musk influence you. I mean insulin's me a lot because I grew up and she's a single mother for a long time and so it started with creativity as a vehicle for expression. Not really anything that you could earn a living at. I only found that much later as much as we could went to every art museum. We went everywhere that we could see something cultural symphonies. Everyone goes the nutcracker everything you could have have from Ashville and Charlotte and then Washington DC so just further and further and further out we would take trips to Smithsonian so as much as I could absorb that that was a big thing and your mom I understand saved a lot of these huge pieces of paper. Have you ever looked back at them. Have you reconsidered. What you're early? Artistic talent was like no talent. It was terrible. It's been bad for years. Some children create great art mine. Was I think just fund fund with materials. So now she still has them but they're weird. You told Ed weeks that you don't know how you start a career and branding it three years old with a Crayon. But in retrospect it seems to make sense. Have you always been that free wheeling with your creativity probably not. I think everything makes sense. In retrospect at the time I think I didn't even know that creativity was a profession that you could even work in this field. I didn't figure that until I was in college and got got exposed to print magazine. That was the very first realized it was even a career and graphic design. Will you studied economics in journalism at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Why right economics given the upbringing that you had art was always a passion a hobby and school? I was good at science good math. I liked the study of economics from like a trends. And what's happening in the world and the kind of how businesses are built. I like the study and theory of it but when I studied economics all my friends ended up either becoming economics professors coming to Wall Street and workings bankers doing something with their economics degree that was more traditional and none of that's right for me. Why Journalism Journalism I I like journalism was the communications vehicle when I discovered graphic design was thing it turns out that the universe North Carolina had a very small program in the journalism program and it was really through a print magazine? You just discovered an issue sitting somewhere on a table so I would go out in the summer so my aunt in California and then I went there for Thanksgiving one year. And she's like what are you GonNa do. You're studying economics. Is that really your passion. We're walking on the beach in California in Santa Barbara after Thanksgiving and it's a hippy. Kind of California thanksgiving the MOM's sister mom's sister and so it's a very California not traditional walking on the beach not watching football. And she's like what are you doing with your life. I said well. I'm studying Economics because what are your passions like creativity. I like music. Maybe that could be a jazz musician. And she's like no no. Why should just like? I'm terrible at Jazz. Apparently and so so she said well how about something in the arts. What do you think about something to use your passion and creativity? Tippety what would you do. I'm like I don't even think there's jobs that you can do. And she for some reason out of curiosity and interest had subscription to print went back from the beach and she showed me the back issues and I started looking at them for Christmas that year. She got me a subscription and I would go through it every year and look at what was happening in New York. Look at what's happened in California and think. Oh this is a real job. Then I made my list of places I wanted to work at so that was the very beginning. Well we'll get to that in a minute or two. I understand that you got your first first job working with WHO described as a craggy pressman with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and ink smeared on his hands. So what was that job and where was it. University North Carolina press known as UNC printing. The Time Heidelberg press it was huge My first internship ship they had just started to get Max and I was doing work on the Mac and I was working quirk express and I was like a junior designer with senior designers and design directors. Kind of helping helping me do some stuff for the university and I would do things and then upstairs are go to the craggy pressman who basically wrap my knuckles and say you can't print with ninety colors. Here's what Mike is this. Here's a PMS as and I've actually learned everything's are doing it. Did he have a t shirt with a particularly interesting message on it. Price Superior inks. I don't know Ah. The most interesting message was at the very first year that I was at UNC. Printing there was a stripping department that did film stripping before we went direct to plate and my real job is stripping. You then completed an internship in the art department of publisher in London. How and why did you you end up in London? And what were you designing. I wanted to go to London because I was nineteen and you could drink beer in London. I've never been to London. That was the sole criteria. Yeah Yeah my friends in Econ Department who actually you know. We're getting good grades and had internships at banks we're going and I thought that would be fun. I should go and so I told my mother. I got a job in pub- she said that's not good enough. You need a real internship you got to think about your career so I find my self publishing firm originally showed up at the publishing publishing firm as just an intern. That does anything. I was wearing khaki pants if you can imagine. Button up blue blazer with gold buttons as from Chapel Hill had a kind of yellow tie. Hi and a blue Oxford shirt terrible. Sounds like you're going to a bum. It's Yup. I was going to a preppy internship in London which was strange I showed up and they said are you here to fix the copier and I said No. I'm in turn will make us a cup of tea then and I was terrible making tea so I wasn't allowed to make any more. I had alphabetize files. I did whatever they wanted me to do. And then I went from department to Department until I landed in the art department and it was the design department and they had stacks briefs for book covers and the designer at the bottom of the stack and said here have fun with that and I had worked in the school newspaper so I knew how to use. Cork Expressway started laying out some books. And they circulated them an editors victim. Says you're staying in this department and you're GONNA book covers. Did you enjoy. I loved it. What year was that would have been like ninety eight or ninety nine so you you came to New York immediately after graduating New York September? Two thousand one. Why did you choose that particular time? Well I did what I told my parents. This is the second degree in journalism which was really just a victory lap in college like five years and then when I graduated it was time to go somewhere to pursue graphic design. I couldn't couldn't get a visa in London. I didn't know anyone in San Francisco and friends were in New York and so my girlfriend and I just got a U.. Haul in New York City you moved moved to New York City with what you've described as the worst possible portfolio imaginable and subsequently found the transition to be a harsh wake-up recall what happened. What was it difficult well? The timing was an awesome. I showed up September first two thousand one and ten days later. We had September eleventh. So that was eh. You know my parents and everyone said moving back home. Obviously and I said No. I'm staying New York. City is where I'm GonNa be as the best place to be graphic designer. I had a portfolio that was hilarious. The giant aluminum box everything was original everything was on illustration board. And I thought that I was. I was great because I was doing real work. I was getting paid to do covers offers. I thought I've made it. Obviously I'm going to show up with my portfolio New York City and get a job. Pentagram dropped it off. This is when they had portfolio dropbox on Tuesdays and Thursdays so I dropped opted off the one just above Madison Square Park to the attention of buckle Beirut obviously and he wrote me a very nice letter it said. Don't be discouraged urged. Obviously we're not hiring you but New York. Obviously we're not no. That was the impression from me. I know it was do not be discouraged. New York is a great place to be a designer honor. Staying in touch. Keep doing what you're doing. Of course I didn't stay in touch it but it was a very nice letter. I still have it see. You started to job search. She began with this list of your favorite design firms..

Beer money sign man sorry for old racist tweets
"It was a guy that held up a sign Elon college game day at Iowa asking for beer money. he put his Venlo account all right of it right pretty smart good and it turned into a money making bananas and over a million dollars to which the guy's name is Carson came yeah he decided that you know he he's not keeping the money he was going to donate the money but in all of this you know the sign said bush lite supply low send money right so bush bush beer got dragged into the plus god you know dragged into it not only drive but the but they offered to donate a ton of cash as well I am embarrassed and stunned to reflect on what I thought was funny when I was a sixteen year old kid and I want to sincerely apologize an apology from Carson king the twenty four year old called a press conference Tuesday night after were racially insensitive social media post he made eight years ago recently surfaced I was brought to my attention by reporter for the des Moines register and once you pointed out and I went back and looked at it I was. hello I was really upset with myself okay so guy holds up funny sign in college team game day people donate money I don't know why you would donate money with people dead a lot of million Bucks and he's like OK woman by myself a case of beer and then I want to donate a lot of the money to the children's hospital which is right by the field reporter at the des Moines register starts doing a profile piece who is this learn more about our person came the guy who will that the site yes research doing this profile piece on Kerr said answered digging into his past and goes back to two weeks no person right now twenty four years old. the reporter went back on his Twitter feed and solve some tweets he had sent when Carson was sixteen eight years ago these were tweets that were written when he was a high school the register described them as racist jokes one comparing black mothers to guerrillas another making light of black people being killed in the Holocaust. now Carson said that. he didn't even remember writing the tweets but he believes that the jokes were made when friends were watching comedy central's Tosh point now yeah. and I after was pointed out to him he was really upset at what he did he was embarrassed by it. we called this news conference yesterday to get out ahead of the profile that was going to be released later that evening Marty issue is based this is like a no good deed goes unpunished. what is the relevance of an eight year old tweet. to a guy who's donating a million dollars to charity because his little sign made on TV just how did we get to bat in are we going to hold everybody to the standard of the stupid thing that ever said or did do do you see what I'm saying I do like the guy is not running for president or governor of I what you know what I'm saying he's not even benefiting. of beer he got a case of beer either from the van mode donations now if he was going to hold on to the cash I'm shocked at all and you want to know the integrity of the person that you just donated money to or anybody getting yourself up that may be considering donating money to if he was personally benefiting beyond a case of beer then I could see the argument for hate just you know who you're donating to any up technically you are donating to him and he's choosing where that money goes but I think this whole cancel culture what we have in this country is becoming just too much well yeah I guess but let's look at this on balance. young man twenty twenty four. raises. entices people to give a million dollars gives it to charity other companies join in match this at any other were all going to do it congradulations and the response by a reporter at the des Moines register is Hey look what he tweeted eight years ago well like I just don't know how you got from one to the other yeah I in defense of the reporter the reporter was going back and just trying to build a profile it didn't appear as though this started off as a smear campaign against Carson I don't I I'm not I would not alleged and there are always conversations that take place in news rooms as to what is relevant what is still relevant to a story if for some reason the editorial decision with in the morning register was that it was part of the public good for people to know these

"Swansea. Massachusetts wants to know if he could do boot a windows ten machine and run MAC too. But I don't think you can't you're right. Because apple is so proprietary way they would let their software on a windows machine. But that's just that's just me. That's just me. She says Tim shafir teaming. You're right. I'm prime into takeover your Giga ten dollars coming your way. But, but there is another another side to the store that you are so good. I've done it can go the other way. Hi ray. Welcome to the show. I am. Well, thank you him. So it was Kim accurate. Is that what you're asking? Yes. That's what I'm asking. I don't laptop two thousand twelve MAC book pro that doesn't charge all the time. Every once in a while charges. I went to upgrade, but I do wanna spend the three thousand dollars. So prayed I bought smack book and stu- Acer slap top right lot. Lot of people do that very common. Okay. It's tie definition knowledge of it. Because it's half the price of apple hardware, pretty much the same, by the way, pretty much the same hardware. Here's the here's the problem. Apple doesn't sell MAC OS. It comes with a MAC, but they don't offer it, and there's no way to legitimately. And there's the underscore that legitimately to get it. There is something called a hacking Tosh. This is this would be a violation of Apple's a terms of service. But people do it all the time. The reason I don't recommend. It is. You could if you Google cintoss. You'll find ways to put it back on your on your face. But you can't do any updates because if you do chances are it'll get broken takes a lot of extra work. Most people you can easily put windows on a MAC because at Microsoft sells windows, standalone, MAC, harbors, basically, PC hardware, apple provides the drivers. They they don't mind if you wanna do that they allow do both dual booting and you can also use a virtual machine, but there's no way to get MAC OS. So the only way get MAC OS is to either own amac or know, somebody who does get the MAC OS from them. And then modify you have to do a lot of hacking around work. I will occasionally charge and I can turn on every once in a while. How old is he smack? I mean, you can always take. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. That's worth keeping going because Lesley until hasn't really changed much since two thousand twelve bring it to the apple store. The put a new battery in it. I did it's not the battery. They says. Nine hundred dollars to go. Forget about it. Well, I don't wanna do that. That's no, that's why I bought the other machine and not case, I probably better off buying a MAC mini. Yeah. And. Less than hundred bucks. Right. And then you could do windows on that actually mech minis are pretty good, you know, deal. They've released new ones or you could use windows, which isn't the end of the world.
