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 now are recorded in the new recording studio at the Masters in Branding Program at the School of Visual Arts — all shows will be aired regularly 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.
