Read Between the Leading - Episode #26

Podcast cover

This episode takes a turn from our previous episode’s very specific topic. In episode 26, we discuss some lofty ideas concerning design sustainability in all matters (social, economic, environmental, etc.) as well as design altruism. We tackle three specific examples, including Cradle to Cradle, and two inventions that are helping developing nations and people. We go in-depth to discuss our consumption, poke fun at laptop stands, and try to begin to peel the bandaid to see how designers can help.

We ask that you let us know too. At the end, we pose a few questions, and now more than ever, we’d love to hear from you. This is a big topic that, comparatively, the two of us know nothing about. The question, though, is pretty simple—how can we help?

In addition, we’d love to have you, dear viewers, on the show. Send us an email. Let us know what times during the week you’re available. Maybe you’ll hear back and be invited on a future episode.

Finally, we’d like to thank Jos for our acknowledgment in his recent Museo Slab spec book. You can check it out in the shownotes, and the face should be available soon.

We’d love to hear your feedback about our non-profit type foundry idea. We’d also love to hear any news (or any corrections) about some of this new technology we’re talking about. Feel free to leave us a comment here, email us at readbetweentheleading@gmail.com, or find us on twitter @rbtlshow.

On this episode we discuss data visualization as the new path and frontier for graphic design, and how graphic design has treated communication of information in the past. We also discuss the definition of graphic design, focusing on Meggs’ quote, and specifically the idea of designers creating artifacts that document human experience.

We unveil our final refined mark and discuss the process we took to get there, and finally we answer a question and review some previous discussions from our spec work episode, 15.

As always, we ask for your comments and love hearing from you. Feel free to call, send in an mp3 or text comment to readbetweentheleading@gmail.com, or find us on twitter @rbtlshow.

“the essence is to give order to information, form to ideas, expression and feeling to artifacts that document human experience.” - Phillip Meggs
