My cover designed in 2000 for the RSA Journal on inventiveness
For the past ten years, I have been running around with a microphone interviewing other designers, and by that I mean designers from many disciplines, not just my own area of graphics.
Ever since embracing the creative world back in the 1960s, I have been fascinated by what makes the designer tick, and the myriad of answers I have received has always fascinated and often surprised me. It gave me the idea of trying to capture some of these moments on tape, so, ten years on, I have clocked up 40 full-length interviews and continue with my quest.
You can hear a 50-minute compilation featuring moments in the lives of Nick Park, Robin Levien, Margaret Howell, Alex McDowell, Roger Law, Terence Woodgate, Betty Jackson, Michael Wolff, Chris Wise, Dinah Casson, Michael Foreman, Thomas Heatherwick, Gerald Scarfe, Georgina von Etzdorf, Kenneth Grange, Kyle Cooper, Peter Brookes, Timothy O’Brien, Nick Butler, Paul Smith and Sara Fanelli.
