New Geek Squad Badges!

There is no equal to Geek Squad. Neither in the tech world – and in the trillion-dollar retail world writ large. That means something to me. It takes 18 months for an agent to earn a badge. There are now agents with over 20 years of service. That is unparalleled in the tech world We designed the new Geek Squad badge with that kind of loyalty in mind. The new Geek Squad badges have areas that honor 5,10,15, and 20 years of service and seniority. Within days of launching this new badge a couple weeks back, the agents themselves had spent tens of thousands of dollars of THIER OWN MONEY to purchase the badges that they are retroactively entitled to. The badges that reflect their seniority and years of service. They did not HAVE to to do this – They just did it because thy WANTED to do it. There is no bigger honor for a designer. None. I am humbled and deeply honored to have designed this brand and this badge.

Get to NOMI !!!

Replace is proud to announce the launch of Nomi Snacks! Simply Fresh. Preserved by Cold. Finally, a bar that’s made to eat, not sit on a shelf! It’s a nutritious snack with a fresh taste and soft texture.

For the past year, we have been lucky enough to have been working on the naming, brand design, illustration, packaging, and basically everything else of the Awesome Folks at Nomi!!! The new site just launched! Nomi Snacks are the HEALTHIEST and the MOST DELICIOUS snack bar you are ever going to find. Trust me on that one. Oats & Fruit! That’s it. In 2012, a group of high school friends walked into a community kitchen in Minneapolis with the goal of making a better granola bar. Sick of eating the same old stuff, they developed a recipe with oats and fruit that actually tasted like something they’d want to eat. Find nomi in the refrigerated section, the natural location for all things fresh. We don’t dry out our bars or add alarming chemicals to make them last forever because we think good food should be made to eat. We are EXTREMELY proud of this new work we have done for the great folks at NOMI !!!

Bravo Dean Phillips!

On the Cover of the City Pages this week. Also – with a GREAT shot of the Touring Van we designed for him. In my 48 years, Dean is the first political candidate for which I have designed. This is no small thing – it’s not like I haven’t been asked. I first designed for Dean and his family back in 1993: An historical survey book for Phillips Distillery. Dean is my age, exactly. We didn’t know it at the time, but while I was scanning old Phillips Liquor labels on my Quadra 900, Dean was climbing the rafters of old Phillips warehouses to GET those labels for me. I am still proud to be designing with Dean. He is precisely what Minnesota needs right now. He’s already my Congressman of Awesome-town. – Jeff Johnson
