It's been too long since Spore has made an appearance at a trade show, but we packed up and went to Los Angeles last month for the Dwell on Design show. The weekend was wonderful and we got great response from everyone who came by. We were excited to be there and hope to make a habit of it.
We were excited to introduce our products to many people who were unfamiliar with us, but we were especially pleased to meet customers who have been familiar with us for years--one even has their original Square doorbell from when we got our start 15 years ago (and it's still illuminated, passing the 100,000 hour rating of our LEDS!).
You may notice the handsome orange chime on the display: we debuted our newest addition to our line, which we are calling Big Ring (6" diameter compared to our regular Ring's 4.25"). This chime has such a handsome deep sound. We are experimenting with finishes still, but we are very excited by this orange, which will be in the final lineup. Look for Big Ring for sale this fall.
While we were out and about on our off hours in Los Angeles, we enjoyed driving around the hills and eating tacos, hitting the Getty Center and Griffith Park Observatory for consecutive sunsets (and we appreciated that coffee in Los Angeles has caught up to Seattle since our last visit).
For Ted, though, the highlight seemed to be this Citroen DS. Thanks, L.A. We will be back soon.
