Marty Neumeier is an ideas man and a teacher in the best sense of the word.
He has written several books about branding, creativity and innovation which became classics in their field. Marty is full of energy and ideas, and the conviction and hope that his ideas truely add value for the readers or his course participants (he just added Masterclasses to his line of focused business books).
Marty Neumeiers's Books
Marty is no fan of business BS. He cuts straight to the point without oversimplifying things. "I have just tried to make it simple" is one of the hardest thing to do, dodging the irrelevant to focus on the important. THE BRAND GAP (2003) and ZAG (2006) come to mind instantly. The phrase “A brand isn’t what you say it is—it’s what they say it is.” is common knowledge now. In his third book, THE DESIGNFUL COMPANY, he addressed how business leaders can build a culture of nonstop innovation. One of his secrets: "If you wanna innovate, you gotta design."
In his live Masterclasses, he is bringing his teaching to a next level: the classes are for professionals that put in an effort and want to evolve their knowledge, networks and careers. Find more information and enroll for classes here.

The 2pt5 - conversations connecting innovators podcast is hosted in Baden-Württemberg, Germany by Klaus Reichert.
This was a fun episode with Marty Neumeier. He has a lot of humor. What I especially enjoyed about his style is his take on minimalism in business books and teaching.
