Tom Gerhardt and Dan Provost are the two fellows behind Studio Neat, a three-year-old industrial design and software firm that started with an almost accidental bang on Kickstarter. Several projects later, they’ve shown they’re no flash in the pan. We talk about crowdfunding, inspiration, and design.
Studio Neat’s latest project was Simple Bracket, an iOS app for tracking one’s predictions in the NCAA basketball tournament, and comparing those with friends. Jason Snell’s “Baseball Misfits” is a great essay about being a non-sports-playing geek who loves sports. It’s a large demographic.
I talked with Marco Arment about his short-run “Neutral” podcast and other topics in Episode #23, “Give Me Something to Read.” Two early Kickstarter-supported movies were Linotype: The Film and Indie Game: The Movie. Both are wonderful films that might seem to be about technology, but are really about the people behind the tech. (The Indie Game filmmakers were on the podcast way back in Episode #1, “Pac-Man Fever”!)
We are dedicated to bringing you the best podcasts about design and culture from a diverse point of view. We’re committed to excellence through argument. Your mom listens.
