Hartmut Esslinger, founder of Frog Design, is undoubtedly one of the world’s most inﬂuential designers. Mr. Esslinger explains how ‘strategic design’ in business and society can and must bring about positive change through innovative creativity with a newly released book titled “Design Forward”. This innovative progression Mr. Esslinger speaks of has sparked creative change in the consumer market, especially for one of the most successful American companies ever built: Apple. We here at Hess Design Solutions love our Apple products and while we haven’t done as much packaging design work as we would have liked to we are constantly fascinated with the it’s creation, especially the prototypical stages where ideas begin to materialize from the abstract.

The folks behind HunterGatherer (founded by Todd St. John) are always moving the goal posts with a very unique “hands-on” approach to design, illustration, and animation. HunterGatherer have been around since 2000 and I think the first time I became aware of HunterGatherer was their cover art they did for Money Mark’s “Brand New By Tomorrow” LP. The studio’s work has been frequently published and exhibited. HunterGatherer has won awards from multiple design organizations, and Todd St. John was included along with collaborator Gary Benzel in the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Triennial: Design Now.
