Designer Robert Brunner - Make it Meaningful
Robert Brunner founded Ammunition in 2007 to communicate ideas through products, brands, and their surrounding experiences. His work as an industrial designer has spawned numerous brand- defining designs over the past three decades, including his efforts while the Director of Industrial Design for Apple. Named one of Fast Company’s “Most Creative People in Business,” Robert’s work is included in permanent design collections at MoMA in both New York and San Francisco. He is the co-author of the book “Do You Matter? How Great Design Will Make People Love Your Company.” I managed to catch up with Robert at his San Francisco studio. I hope you’ll find his insights about the intersection of business and art as fascinating as I did.

Musician Chuck Leavell - "On Tour with the Rolling Stones"
Rolling Stones guitarist, Keith Richards, once commented about their longtime keyboard player, Chuck Leavell: “Without the continuity that Chuck brings to us, the Stones would not be the Stones.” Leavell describes his role with the band as a “sort of musical navigator” who keeps track of arrangements and keeps things balanced in addition to spicing up the music with his keyboards.And as you would imagine, there’s more to Chuck’s artistry than his work with the Rolling Stones, who by the way, are in the middle of their No Filter tour right now.I managed to catch up with Chuck Leavell in between gigs to talk about the Stones, Eric Clapton’s unplugged album, his work as a writer, and his definition of success as an artist.
