Why Design Matters, Featuring Author and Podcast Host Debbie Millman

  • WeWork South Williamsburg 109 S 5th St. New York, NY USA (map)

From branding to resume building and beyond, design touches almost every aspect of our lives. Join us as Tina Essmaker, editor in chief of The Great Discontent, sits down with acclaimed podcast host and author Debbie Millman to chat about design, creativity, and how to master branding in today’s over-crowded marketplace.

More about Debbie Millman: Named “one of the most influential designers working today” by Graphic Design USA, and “one of the most creative people working in business” by Fast Company, Debbie Millman is also an author, educator, brand strategist and host of the podcast Design Matters. As the founder and host of Design Matters, the first and longest-running podcast about design, Millman has interviewed nearly 300 design luminaries and cultural commentators, including Massimo Vignelli, Milton Glaser, Malcolm Gladwell, Dan Pink, Barbara Kruger, Seth Godin, and more. 

Debbie is the author of six books, including two collections of interviews that have extended the ethos and editorial vision of Design Matters to the printed page: How to Think Like a Great Graphic Designer and Brand Thinking and Other Noble Pursuits. Both books have been published in over 10 languages. In 2009 Debbie co-founded with Steven Heller the world’s first graduate program in branding at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Now in its sixth year, the program has achieved international acclaim. 

Attendance is free, hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served. RSVP on Meetup; limited to the first 80 RSVPs.
