By the time I am writing this, Analog has crushed its goal already on Kickstarter. This proves that well-thought out design can be feasible, it all depends on the conceptual idea and its execution. Our good pal over Ugmonk has an incredible history of designing and making useful items that truly enhance our lives whatever that is on the lifestyle and now on our productivity level.
Being in the industry for a long time, I personally take proud joy seeing designers and makers we featured grow and evolve their brand to higher grounds. ABDZ is a community and having our platform to share is always welcoming to newcomers and/or for those who just keep innovating and creating marvelous products. Today, I wanted to share that love to Ugmonk. Jeff is a founder and designer behind this incredible brand where not only has built his own voice but has grown mature into his design.
Our good friend Jeff Sheldon is celebrating its 10th year of his Ugmonk brand. Each year, Jeff will design and come up with an anniversary set that will blow us away and this year is simply clean, unique and as we are publishing this article. All the sets are sold out within the first 24 hours! That's awesome! For the lucky ones who were able to snag a set, you will be getting your 10th-anniversary tee, a special notebook, a steel ruler, black leather coaster and more.
Somebody else is celebrating today and it's our good friend Jeff Sheldon from Ugmonk. All in festivities of his ninth anniversary, with the yearly traditional Ugmonk's anniversary set. Every year, it's always a surprising joy to uncover this limited edition set where you will be welcomed with a signature tee, emblem and of course beautiful packaging. Wonder who has the entire collection of Ugmonk's anniversary sets since his beginning. Congratulations to Jeff for Ugmonk's ninth anniversary!

This month, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Abduzeedo. This is very special to us, Fabio Sasso created the blog as a side-project after he lost everything from a robbery back in 2006. It was in his way for him to backup files but also bookmark things he liked and inspired him. Since then his work has been used, shared and featured many times but beyond all, his goal was to inspired us to create and make more. That’s the philosophy and minset of Abduzeedo that will always lives on.
As a brand, it's never easy to introduce a new identity to your users. So the thing is people never ever like change. To commit your users to a new logo is committing them to new behaviors, vision and etc. It is quite a challenge and will take time to adapt. Some brands play it safe and some go completely overboard. We would love to share the latest work from Jeff Sheldon over at Ugmonk that introduced us a whole new identity.
Ugmonk is a maker. We are showcasing today his story behind the craft of a collaboration from a designer to wicked folks (The Black Anchor) making the product all handcrafted. Behind every single product, there's a story. Video
