In October 2011, Design Matters was the recipient of a National Design Award from the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. 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 take place in a recording studio at the Masters in Branding Program at the School of Visual Arts.
You can listen to these special episodes, as well as the entire archive of Design Matters on Design Observer, iTunes and SoundCloud.
