For young designers like myself, Debbie Millman is an awe-inspiring phenomenon. She is brilliant and gorgeous in everything she does.

If I could have my way with Debbie, I'd get her to evaluate my portfolio and make out with me, not necessarily at the same time. I bet she's an amazing kisser.

This interview left me slightly disappointed and unsatisfied. Mainly due to the short length of the interview, and the minimal insights that were provided into Jennifer Sterling's background, work, and thought processes – which could stem from (what sounded like) a lack of willingness on the part of the interviewee to be interviewed. However, Debbie continues to be the most consistent and intriguing voice on design, via Design Matters – kudos!

My post need not be published. I just hope you will correct several typos in a piece about a typographer. I understand she's a rincipal [sic] of the eponymous firm and that her name is not Jennier [sic], but still. You don't want to look careless. DO is a fine media company.
