As an artist, website creator, musician, chess champion and more, Narada wants to turn the world on to the ancient knowledge of sacred geometry with the “futuristic” technology of 3D printing!

Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located?
I am an artist, website maker, musician, ex-Australian-Junior-Chess-Champion, on a mission to turn the world on to the ancient knowledge known these days as ‘sacred geometry’.

I am based in Byron Bay Australia, a center of alternative society and creativity.

Designer Spotlight: Simon Lang

This week we are featuring Simon Lang, a chemistry enthusiast (to say the least) who has taken his life work and applied it to everyday life. Using molecules for merchandise, Simon has a shop full of beautiful science – find your favorite molecule and wear it around your neck, on a keychain, or simply hold it in your hand!

Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located?
My name is Simon Lang and I live near Basel in Switzerland. I studied chemistry at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW). My thesis “Immunosuppressive Drugs and their Interaction with the Efflux Transporter P-Glycoprotein” won the Dr. Max Lüthi Award in 2009. After some travels I went to the University of Basel to obtain my PHD, but during the first four to five weeks I stopped and turned my attention to things more inspiring. That way I learned to build websites, design stuff and produce music. One of the results was the moleculestore: t-shirts and hoodies for chemists. Over the years I expanded the product line with bags, mugs, wall clocks, shower curtains and last but not least 3D printed molecule keychains and jewelry produced by Shapeways.

This weeks Designer Spotlight focuses on Steven Gray, an origami loving 3D designer from Scotland.

Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? Where are you located?
I’m a Glasgow, Scotland, born sci-fi geek dad with a background in IT and an interest in technology and gadgets that goes right back to the late 1970′s when all I coveted was my best friend’s Merlin hand held game. I hesitate to call myself a designer. I could say my hobby is 3D design but I’ve been making things as long as I can remember, out of cardboard, paper, glue. I love origami; the process of turning a single sheet of paper into something is fascinating. Give me a few squares of paper and I’ll make you an origami box!

Posted by in Designer Spotlight

This week we are highlighting Gabriel Prero, amazing owner of Cufflink Junkie. We interviewed Gabriel back in 2013 and wanted to catch up; looks like the shop has grown a ton, with lots of commision orders! We especially like that Gabriel has chosen two specific niches between cufflinks and Hebrew lettering – always great to look for those sweet spots for shoppers. The shop has clearly expanded into more than cufflinks, so make sure you take a look.
