HOW Magazine July 2010

HOW Magazine My Best Work

Hello’s collaboration with Herman Miller featured in HOW’s “My Best Work” column.

In every issue of HOW, the magazine features a noted designer to ask one question: “What is your best, favorite, or most memorable design project?” For this month’s issue, our CEO/Creative Director, David Lai, answered with, “Herman Miller.”

Hello has worked with Herman Miller for a few years now, and we’ve always valued our relationship with them and our shared philosophy on the power of good design. We admire Herman Miller for their thoughtfulness in approach in making things human, and love hearing all the stories they have to share.

There’s something really special about going behind the scenes of a company you truly admire. – David Lai

Digital Maestro

Occidental Magazine

“If you see someone walking down the streets of Los Angeles waving an iPhone like Errol Flynn in an old swashbuckling pirate movie, blame Scott Arenstein ’02—and Gustavo Dudamel.” – Scott Martelle, Occidental Magazine

Our Account Director, Scott Arenstein, was featured in his alma mater’s magazine for Hello’s work with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. As a Music History major, Scott’s passion for classical music began at age five when he first learned to play the violin. Oxy Magazine’s article highlights Scott’s leading role in Hello’s campaign with the LA Phil in welcoming classical music sensation, Gustavo Dudamel, to the LA community. The project simultaneously reached out to fans internationally, enabling them to connect with Dudamel through interactive experiences, like turning their iPhone into a conductor’s baton.
