Welcome to episode #480 of Six Pixels Of Separation – The Mirum Podcast. I have read loved and re-read every little book that Marty Neumeier (he’s also the Director of Transformation at Liquid Agency) has written. You should too. I use the word “small” in a physical way (it has nothing to do with his content). Marty writes books that you can read in a few hours. They are small and beautifully designed (re: simple). The ideas and depth of the words sink in (re: a wealth of knowledge). Slowly. Over time. He also writes books that you will go back to you. Every year. With joy. With that, I have been spending a lot of time thinking about design thinking. What does it mean to Mirum? What does it means to business? What does it mean to the personal work that I do with my words? What does it mean to our clients? What does it mean to the future of business? A lot of thinking. A lot of “what does it mean”? Currently, I am in the middle of reading the book, The Designful Company by Marty. I am loving it. Much like Marty’s other books (The Brand Gap, Zag, The 46 Rules of Genius, and others), it is beautifully designed (typography matters!) and written in an easy-to-understand way. I reached out to Marty for this podcast. He was just launching his latest book, The Brand Flip. Do you have it? You have to get it. Enjoy the conversation…
