I’ll be speaking at AIGA DC on October 21 as part of their Design Week. AIGA is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and the DC chapter is celebrating its 30th, so it’s a perfect time to discuss Lessons from the Design Icons, wisdom on design, creativity, work and life I learned from the legendary designers profiled in my book. Register online, and check out the Q&A I did with AIGA’s Scott Kirkwood. Hope to see you there!
The designers who designed not only on the screen, but for the screen, ushered in a new era of digital design, mixing media and incorporating motion, sound and interactivity. Read my post about pioneers such as Wim Crouwel, April Greiman, and John Maeda at Smashing Magazine.
