Design Voices by Anna Carnick @acarnick

Design Voices
Through thoughtful interviews, Design Voices offers a snapshot of the modern design world, and reminds us of the craft’s poetic, pragmatic, and altruistic potential. This eclectic collection includes conversations with design legends, rising stars, graphic designers, industrial designers, and those who defy categorization.

In their own words, eight of today’s most intriguing and prolific designers—Milton Glaser, Massimo Vignelli, Stefan Sagmeister, Giulio Cappellini, Ross Lovegrove, Tokujin Yoshioka, Dror Benshetrit, and Maarten Baas—reflect on the state of modern design, and reveal the vast possibilities that the term designer carries with it today.
 Gathered over two months at the end of 2011, Design Voices provides a rare and timely glimpse inside the minds of individuals whose work and sensibilities make the world a far more interesting, beautiful, and, often, hopeful place.
