Omni-MATHematics and Molecular Branding with Dimitris Lazarou [The Polymath PolyCast]
- September 26th 2021
►Today we are talking with Dimitris Lazarou is a Brand Identity designer. After studying mathematics, he decided to change his focus into design, semiotics and symbolism.
TLDR: Audio in start is meh, but gets a LOT better later on.
The interview had amazing topics, and was super engaging. However we did have various technical difficulties. I want to mention to you the viewer that the beginning has some weird audio to it, but I fixed it as much as I could. As well as, it gets better when we switched tools later on!
He has made it his mission to harness the way that we use design to communicate our messages. We are here to talk about semiotics - the study of signs & symbols, the connection of math and design, Molecular Branding, and the beauty of the universal language of math.

The Polymath PolyCast with Dustin Miller
This show is for the polymathic, the entrepreneurial, the multipotentialites, and the Innovators!
Now on Season 6!!
PolyInnovator (The overarching personal brand that the PolyCast is under), means Innovation Polymath, or future global changemaker. Created a Modular Degree curated with online courses and micro-credentials. You will find topics wide ranging in interests!
PolyInnovator works in #PolyInContent sprints, which are like multi/omni channel episodes. So each release gets a OmniBlog Post, TeleInnovator Video, and PolyCast upload! :D
Between the OmniContent, and the guest interviews I have on the show, there are multiple formats for the #PolyCast. It can get a little confusing, so here is the series that you will see:
Bits of idea bursts, rants, explanations, and simply short form 3-10min episodes.
These don't happen often, but they are the medium sized episodes that may have a didactic feel to them. They are solocasts, with a bit of flare.
Each episode of the Omnicontent series starts with a blog post, turns into a slideshow, then a video, and with the video I extract the audio and turn it into a PolyCast!
The Polymath PolyCast Interviews
The interview and guest arm of the show, these episodes tend to be much longer, as they are interview discussions. They have been great, and the nuggets of knowledge anyone can get from them have been insanely awesome.
All in all they keep a similar polymathic feel, and stay true to the "Niche".... However the subniches can be essentially anything. Meaning the topics could be as well, so don't worry if one episode doesn't fit the bill. I'm sure another one will hit it out of the park!
