Lincoln Design Co.

This week on the show I'm stoked to bring you Lincoln Design Co.

I’ve been following these dudes work religiously since I discovered them on Instagram about a year and a half ago. I was lucky enough to meet up with them at Crop Conference and get them on the show with their crazy schedule.

Lincoln Design Co is a Brand Design & Creative Agency who works with the likes of Nike, Element Skateboards, Harley, Ninja Turtles, Transformers, Disney, Nerf, Hot Wheels, Tony Hawk, Nickelodeon, yadda yadda I could keep on going but you get the point.

These dudes are the shit and I feel very honored to get to share a bit of their story and background with you today.

In this episode, Dan Janssen and company talk about:

  • building Lincoln Design Co. from the previous Soup Graphics.
  • organizing a killer on-site / remote team of illustrators and designers.
  • how they got started whether they had the traditional design education or not.
  • managing large client with tight turnaround times.
  • making time for brand awareness by having fun with creating merch.
  • what the typical day-to-day operations look like.
  • a look into their designing process.
  • upcoming projects and work they are excited about.

Their team is made up of 6 people:

  1. Dan Janssen -  The fearless leader and founder who specializes in graphic design
  2. Dustin Noden -  Dan's second in command, art director and designer a.k.a. "@dontrealllycare"
