Inspirational Design of the Week: HuMn Wallet
Posted in Inspirational Design of the Week, Just Cool by Courtney on February 27th, 2012

A good wallet is hard to find—let alone one with a minimalist design and RFID protection. Designers Scott Hussa and Ken Minn have solved that problem with the HuMn wallet and a bunch of us here at DNA 11 can’t stop buzzing about it.

This Kickstarter project was born out of necessity and lots of traveling. Being two dudes on the go, Scott and Ken tried almost every type of wallet, money clip, card case, and wallet mutation out there. They were looking for a way to keep what they needed in their wallets, while getting rid of the things they didn’t.

All of the rejected wallets had a common problem: while they might start out “looking” slim, they would take on the usual bloated appearance once cards and cash were thrown in. To make things worse, almost all of the wallets out there didn’t protect against RFID skimming.

The HuMn Wallet is front pocket friendly and includes two plates (either aluminum or carbon fiber depending on the model) which are secured with an expandable band. Lots of different pledge options are available, so kickstart this project into gear!

    Hi Damon,

    Thank you for your comment.

    of materials between anodized 6061 grade aluminum or carbon fiber to name a


    The idea is to make and offer a better wallet…a better


    We appreciate your comment and concerns. 

  3. damn- that is similar. I really hated it when people ripped off our designs when we started DNA11.  Damon – unfortunately these things are hard to protect so my advice to you is go and do you best to re-invent yourself and get as much PR as possible. You need to try out market your competitors. It also doesn’t help that I want to buy one and your site says sold out of every color I want.
