Trust in thyself is paramount for a designer

Check out this cute little product that my design team and I developed. Seem to have some really great reviews, here’s the our link love and link Karma to those that featured it:

If you’ve been looking for a portable DVD player that’s a little more stylish than the usual fare…

Nakamichi is an Asian brand that’s known in some circles for their audio/video design style.

~ Gizmondo

Nakamichi has established its reputation as a manufacturer of high performance and scrumptious looking designer style audio equipment that can easily give the better known Bang & Olufsen a run for their money.
Lumos portable DVD player is one of Nakamichi’s latest entries.

Nakamichi seems to have hit the jackpot with its latest portable DVD player Lumos. It looks great; it is small and features a so wide range of capabilities that it makes your head spin.
As all the Asian manufacturers, Nakamichi certainly has the know-how, at least for an innovative design which can probably give a kick to the well-known Bang & Olufsen, and I’m not the only one who says that, as also the guys from Mobile Whack affirmed the same thing.

There are certain brand names out there that strike me as intriguing for one reason or another. Some brands make odd devices that break the norm, some make revolutionary devices that blow peoples minds, other companies just make stuff that works and they do it with style. Nakamichi is one of those brands that falls into the latter category.

Strangely we did not seem think the same way as the reviews, but often designers are their own worst enemy. The reason was that we were so closed to the product that we came to know every single quirk and flaw that influenced how we thought of the product as a whole.
Lesson learnt: Get outside feedback, take a break, get some air and try not to lose the plot!

    Hi Steve,
    Thanks for stopping by!
    Yes I totally agree, it does bring some perspective into things, espically if a project was really tough or it was getting you down.

    That last bit is probably the most important part. I can’t name how many times I’ve been on a great project that we all hated until we saw what other people thought.
