Stories, and a New Designer

Joey Roth is a young designer in New York, who transitioned into industrial design from creative writing. Gives him a neat perspective.

Here’s a quote from his blog that I really liked: “Narrative is like a codec for storing and playing back memories, and people seek opportunities to build small stories in their lives. People judge products that are unremarkably easy to acquire on how well the thing works, rather than on a story they’ve built around it (if a product is super-easy to acquire, that ease could be a story itself).” (source)

And, then, there’s his beautiful new teapot, Sorapot.
