John Maeda

November 1st, 2005

John Maeda is a world-renowned graphic designer, visual artist, and computer scientist at the MIT Media Lab, and is a founding voice for “simplicity” in the digital age. I have some of his books and his work just blows me away.

Now he designed a skateboard for Mekanism.


This board is called “thrrrrrrust2, the concept is two thousand little arrows arranged
in a collage as a kind of representation of “thrust” as often seen in physics films.

Ofcourse I ordered one.

Here’re some pictures of the launch party.
