SUPERLATIVE: DESIGNING AND CRITIQUING WATCH DESIGNS WITH MATT SMITH-JOHNSON - ART DIRECTOR FOR ABTW.COM Superlative

    • Hobbies

This is Superlative: A Podcast about watches, the people behind them, and the worlds that inspire them. This week our host Ariel Adams is joined by the Art Director of aBlogtoWatch.com, and Founder/Creative Director at Sentient Creative, Matt Smith-Johnson. They two talk about what its like meeting other watch enthusiasts and how it usually means you have a few others things in common, how learning about watching isn't the easiest thing, and they make some car and Heavy Metal music comparisons with watches and watch eras specifically. Ariel and Matt talk about how important the appearance of a watch truly is because of the visual experience you have when you look at a watch and how you need to have that immediate response to seeing a watch to make it special to you. Ariel mentions how Matt was responsible for multiple iterations of the ABTW website design plus much more, and asks where he personally goes for inspiration. Matt talks about how perception plays a huge part in design and making a person who is experiencing your art feel a certain way or portal a certain message to them. To end the show, they talk about the Dietrich Time Companion that had a dial designed by Matt, the Laco RAD-AUX Limited Edition piece that is made for the Fallout gaming universe, and how fun and unique the design experience for that piece was for them and everybody involved.
