Part two of @InfiniteTheMag’s visit to the Staple Pigeon offices has arrived. In this episode of “Movers & Shakers,” they ask @jeffstaple if support, or rather the lack thereof, proved to be an additional form of motivation to get him to where he is now. Does jeff think there is an underlying value found in creative courses in our education system? Does he see school as an area for people to gain skills to better themselves or as a place to a pump out the lowest common denominator of decent students? Join @DevTravern, Founder & Editor-In-Chief of Infinite Mag, as he finds the answers, here.
The homies over at @InfiniteTheMag paid @jeffstaple a visit at the Staple Design HQ. They met with jeffstaple to have a chat about Staple Pigeon, Reed Space and how he got his start, but not without doing their homework. Founder, Editor-in-Chief, and lead contributor to the “Movers & Shakers” series, @DevTravern, took it upon himself to dig through the archives and see what had already been covered about the brand’s Founder and Creative Director. So, after doing his homework on the man behind Staple Pigeon, Travern made sure he conducted an interview that grasped “the background story of what it took to bring the Staple Pigeon brand to life from the inside out.” Check out the first episode here and hear about how jeff got to where he is today.
