Greenwich design teacher Phil Lohmeyer recently published his first book, titled “Wave the Flag: Project Management with Mr. Lohmeyer’s Design Flags.” The book features a 16-step project-management system based on flag designs, available through Amazon Books in both paperback and Kindle format.
Lohmeyer said, “Design Flags allow you to break your project down, then build it back up while inventing your own cause. These fundamental steps can help you tackle any project.”
The Whitby School teacher created his Design Flags last summer in Stamford, with limited materials, including card stock, pencils and Sharpie markers. In October 2017, Lohmeyer began to pilot the system with 8th-grade designers while planning a logo contest for Whitby’s 60th anniversary. A content copyright for the book was registered in January 2018 and the paperback format was made available to the public in July through Amazon.com.
Lohmeyer’s experience with project management includes nonprofit fundraisers and business networking events. He has worked over the past decade in Fairfield and Westchester counties, developing a focus on form and function in the classroom.
“I want to help readers brainstorm, recruit allies and rededicate themselves to their own passion projects. By using these carefully crafted Design Flags, readers can liberate their own potential and change lives,” he said.
