Humans have come to this point in technology, social order, and internet memes because of the ability to exchange ideas, cooperate, and build systems.

Sometimes it works.

Sometimes it doesn’t.

It all comes down to how we design everything we do — whether it’s a website, whether it’s our outfit, whether it’s the government.

Meet John, CEO Handsome.

John from Handsome

John is the co-founder and CEO of Handsome. You know that nice glass-walls building you pass by on east 6th? That Handsome.

In this episode, we dive deep into the art of designing – whether that’s the values John strove to build Handsome around, or the design of customer experiences he believes makes businesses successful, or the people he chooses to work with.

I really enjoyed this interview, because John pulls out examples and observations from a lot of his past experiences — discovering the internet in high school, his time in the military, and his 4-5 years being a digital nomad around the world.
