Minimalist Clock, 2014

The Sun and Moon Minimalist clock is a simple yellow clock that is finished with a custom photoluminescent treatment allowing it to shift color and glow softly at night. It's no surprise that I first sketched the idea for the Sun and Moon Minimalist Clock while reading How to See by George Nelson and then revisited the idea while reading Essential Essays by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus years later. I've always admired Nelson's clocks especially the ball clock. I feel quite lucky to have befriended the lengendary Chris Pullman, who led graphics in Nelson's studio for a number of years before landing at WGBH in Boston.
