Abstract:

"This wide-ranging compilation of interviews offers a colorful and candid introduction to the personalities, passions, and work of thirty-four respected designers, artists, authors, and media producers. With design as the common thread, each exchange opens an individual perspective on the visual culture at large, ranging in focus from the manipulative power of images to the place of theory in design practice to the myriad interactions between design and life. The stories are woven from experiences in media, theory, history, politics, and the blurry realm of interactivity. Both an oral history of graphic design and a living record of where we are today, these engaging and evocative dialogues provide anyone interested in design or popular culture with a means of understanding, as well as ideas for working in, the visual world around them."--Jacket.
