Stemming from the idea of Memento Mori—or a symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death—designer Daneil Will-Harris’ Mr. Mori watch perfectly encapsulates the importance of time. Mr. Mori’s all-black composition, even absent of numeric value, helps to emphasize its focal point—a skeletal illustration continuously pointing as time ticks by. This timepiece’s design and contrasting color scheme works as a constant reminder to live in the present.
A writer, actor, designer, and computer graphics pioneer, Daniel Will-Harris is truly a modern Renaissance man who (literally) wrote the book on computer typography and design for the internet age. Referred to as “truly unique” by the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, he has invented the EsperFonto, a system which helped to create a new paradigm in typeface selection. A pioneer of print-on-demand indie publishing and the web, Will-Harris has also designed award-winning book covers, visual systems for the entertainment industry and identities for restaurants listed among the to 50 in the US.
