If he put it on Medium, only Apple nerds would have read it. By putting it on the WSJ it got a huge audience who never would have saw it. I would argue it was far better putting it on a site like the WSJ.

I noticed that too. This resulting site—in which a designer tries to co-opt the LoveFrom brand purely to try to get the attention of Jony Ive and Mark Newson—is hilarious:

I wonder how people contact Jony and Mark to hire them. Networks, I guess.

Yeah. I would imagine that if you’re playing on the level where they’d consider you as a client, you probably have the connections to make it happen.

Either that or it’s “don’t call us, we’ll call you”. :slight_smile:

Follow up! Looks like they’ve just launched the official LoveFrom website. It’s unapologetically elegant and simple. Who would’ve guessed?

(Check out the chamfered typeface.)
