New Season of Design Matters with Debbie Millman


We are pleased to announce that Season Six of Design Matters with Debbie Millman will premiere on Observer Media this Friday at 3pm with a legendary guest, none other than Massimo Vignelli — during our week-long celebration of Lella and Massimo Vignelli.

Design Matters is returning to regular weekly broadcasts and a full season of audio/podcast interviews with designers, artists, writers, thought leaders and general all-around provocateurs. This exciting season will include interviews with designers Eric Baker, Marian Bantjes, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Stephen Doyle, Tina Roth Eisenberg, and James Victore; writers Dominique Browning, Ralph Caplan and Steven Heller; and writer Alexandra Lange with Jane Thompson, founder of Design Research. More interviews will be announced in the coming months.

Debbie Millman notes, “Design Matters began in February of 2005 with an idea and a telephone line. I thought it would be a great way to ask my heroes everything I wanted to know about their lives and their thoughts and their careers without seeming stalker-y. In the process, I gleaned the most magnificent view of some of the greatest design thinkers and practitioners of our time. I realized the opportunity to share the brilliance of my guests with an audience I never expected was the gift of a lifetime."

The shows will now be recorded in a brand-spanking new recording studio at the Masters in Branding Program at the School of Visual Arts —and the shows will be aired regularly at 3PM on Fridays.

Design Observer is pleased to be broadcasting Design Matters, and you can listen to both the new episodes, as well as the entire archive of past shows here.

Huzzah! Will be listening… hope Mrs. V will make a guest appearance, too.

Q. Do we "tune in" on DO? or on another website? Don't want to miss it…

Just another voice of praise. Debbie does an amazing job of interviewing her guests. Her curiosity, intelligence and enthusiasm for the subject are matched by a real warmth and humanity in her approach. Giant thank-yous for producing these podcasts.
