Michael Bierut on 86 Notebooks




In this talk by Michael Bierut at the 99 Percent Conference in 2009, he gives tips on design productivity and five separate lessons using drawings and notes from his 86 notebooks. He also touches on his dislike of neutered sprites and imparts nuggets of design wisdom such as: "The problem contains the solution," "Don't avoid the obvious," and "Indulge your obsessions."

You gotta love Michael Bierut. He is a one of a kind original.

My first experience observing Michael in person was his emceeing the Command X -Graphic Design Reality Show in Denver, sponsored by AIGA a few years back. He was tremendous.

Thanks Michael!

Michael is definitely CREATIVE.

Recently, I was handed my images back with a "that's nice work for your clients, but what are you passionate about?"

My response (in my head, of course)
First, I am passionate about not ending a sentence in a preposition.

Then, I am passionate about helping my clients tell their stories with better images. Michael has reaffirmed my belief that that is my Passion....
