I always listen to podcasts or radio when i'm workin (i like the combo of learning and working at the same time) and one of my fave podcasts is Design matters with Debbie Millman.
It's recorded from the empire state building in New York and consists of interviews with top graphic designers around the world.
Yesterday I listened to her interview with Emily Oberman of Number 17 Design Studio and I had that wonderful feeling of having a new world open up for me.
Emily was funny, smart, abit self deprecating and very human and when i went to her website i saw that the work she produces (with her partner and long time bestfriend Bonnie Siegler) perfectly matched the personality I heard coming out of my speakers.
The spirit of their work is definitely what I aspire to in my own. Would love to meet them someday too.
This first post isn't perfect but i have to post it now cuz my dear friend chris says my stars are perfectly aligned between 9:30 - 9:36 am.
