Why Design Matters: Conversations with the World's Most Creative People

by Debbie Millman
Hardcover
Limit 100

PRE-ORDER for 11/9/2021

Foreword by Roxane Gay

The author, educator, brand consultant, and host of the widely successful and award-winning podcast Design Matters showcases dozens of her most exciting interviews, bringing together insights and reflections from today's leading creative minds from across diverse fields.

"Debbie Millman has become a singular voice in the world of intimate, enlightening conversations. She has demonstrated time, and again, why design matters."--Roxane Gay, from the foreword

Over the course of her popular podcast's fifteen-year reign, Debbie Millman has interviewed more than 400 creative minds. In those conversations, she has not only explored what it means to design a creative life, but has, as Millman's wife, Roxane Gay, assesses in her foreword, "created a gloriously interesting and ongoing conversation about what it means to live well, overcome trauma, face rejection, learn to love and be loved, and thrive both personally and professional."

In this illustrated, curated anthology, Millman includes approximately 80 of her best interviews with visionaries from across diverse fields. Grouped by category--Legends, Truth Tellers, Culture Makers, Trendsetters, and Visionaries--these eye-opening, entertaining, and enlightening conversations--offer insights into new ways of being and living.

Accompanying each entry is a brief biography, a portrait photographed by Millman, and a pull quote written in Millman's artistic hand. Why Design Matters features 100 images and includes interviews with:

Marina Abramovic, Cey Adams, Elizabeth Alexander, Laurie Anderson, Lynda Barry, Allison Bechdel, Michael Bierut, Brené Brown, Alain de Botton, Eve Ensler, Shepard Fairey, Tim Ferriss, Louise Fili, Kenny Fries, Anand Girhidardas, Cindy Gallop, Malcolm Gladwell, Milton Glaser, Ira Glass, Seth Godin, Thelma Golden, Gabrielle Hamilton, Steven Heller, Jessica Hische, Michael R.
