Stefan Sagmeister (1962– ) is among today’s most important and influential graphic designers. Born in Austria, he has lived and worked in New York since 1993. Renowned for album covers, posters, installations and his recent book of life lessons, Things I have learned in my life so far, Sagmeister brings a fresh perspective to the role and work of a designer. In this podcast interview with Debbie Millman, he discusses his year away from his New York-based design practice, his personal time in Bali, as well as discussing his new, in-progress documentary film, Happiness.
This week on the show, we got a chance to talk to Armin Vit and Bryony Gomez-Palacio of UnderConsideration. We talked to them about their own history in design, their move from New York to Texas, design criticism in the professional field, and the ever-changing world of logo design.

This week on the show we talk all about type on the web. We discuss recent developments like Typekit, Font Bureau’s Permission table, and Spiekermann’s new typeface Axel. We also talk a bit about our own idea for a non-profit type foundry, a foundry based on donations that commissions type designers to design web fonts we can release for free on the web.
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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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
