For anyone who is unfamiliar with him, Marc Newson is one of the most influential designers, selling his designs (be it art, furniture, or jewelry) for millions of dollars per piece.
Being able to generate such value for one’s creation ultimately beckons the question of “what are some of his influences”.
In this video below Newson discusses his influences, and how he applied them to the design business.
Most notably, Newson champions world travel (so get out of the office if you want to succeed creatively!). Similar to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, Newson also speaks about the influence the culture of Japan has had on his profession.
Definitely check out this interview of Newson by TIME located HERE.
