Debbie Millman is a voice in the design community whom I've recently discovered and quickly come to respect and admire. I've come across her name and work multiple times in the last week and I'm really excited to discover a new voice in design.
I own her book Look Both Ways: Illustrated Essays on the Intersection of Life and Design and admittedly wasn't blown away when I first read it but...
Her name came up again as the subject of Steven Heller's "The Daily Heller" in a discussion of her illustrated essay called Penelope. In recently acquiring my first real job in design, I connected strongly with the essay, so much so that I'm currently using images from the essay as the background on my desktop.
Today's "The Daily Heller" was an interview with her about her Podcast, "Design Matters with Debbie Millman" and I thought I'd check it out since she's a well respected and accomplished designer. I haven't had a chance to listen yet but when she's interviewed Steven Heller, Massimo Vignelli, Milton Glaser and Stefan Sagmeister. Wow, quite the line up! I personally can't wait to check these interviews out!
