FEAR AND LOATHING

On the exhibit design trail
Interview with Founding Boothologist
John-Paull Davidson

Q: It is often said that behind every successful entrepreneur is a driving passion. For you was it sustainable design?

A: Haha… it’s so funny how there is this mythology of the entrepreneur (sarcastically) so why don’t I just feed right into that… I was fortunate to get my start at Mobius. We were designing for the success of our clients but also to a higher ideal. The passion was (is) design can make peoples lives better - more relaxing; more functional; pleasing.Being green, eco friendly, sustainable, is just a method of achieving those goals. I looked out at frankly a lot of crap design and it pissed me off. So part of it was I wanted to save the world from bad design.But I was also pissed off that we were creating tons and tons of stuff that would get used for a few years and then go in a dumpster. I grew up in an environmentally conscious household in Oregon and it didn’t feel right. I am also really into the “made in america” thing. I believe Americans do it better.
