Innovation has many mothers. Over the past few decades, designers have been steadily moving onto the world stage as central figures, arbiters and midwives, in the birth of new innovations. Both inside and outside the corporate process, as seen regularly on the uber-TED channel, and of course (bow, scrape) through the “more money than the US Government” DNA of Steve Jobs and i-Life, the inseparability of design and innovation has mainlined into our collective consciousness.
There is no better place to feel the heat and experience the visceral force of design thinking in action then the Design Matters interviews, the internet radio show archives of Debbie Millman, herself a pioneer in designer-led innovation as author, AIGA President, Sterling Design leader and industry energizer. When you need a source of inspiration. We’re just saying…Go Debbie.
