Meet Adam Derry, the Man Putting Tech into Gucci Suits



Wearable technology is the future, I think we can all agree on that. Adam Derry was the mastermind behind will.i.am’s fully functional cellular Gucci suit at this year’s Met Gala. The suit had the capabilities to text, call, play music, and many more features that you wouldn’t believe. The hanger worked as a charger, giving a whole new meaning to “charged up.”
Adam started his creative brand development agency, ADBD, back in 2007. His numerous successful projects caught the eye of will.i.am, and by the end of 2012, he began to act as creative director to the Black Eyed Peas star. He is now a pioneer in the fashion world, pushing culture forward every day.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
