Michael Bierut

On this episode, Debbie Millman talks to Design Observer co-founder Michael Bierut about why he thinks graphic design is so cool. It all goes back to high school and designing the poster for the school play: "There were other people acting in the play, and that's one way to go, I suppose. But doing the poster for the play, my god ..."

Michael Bierut studied graphic design at the University of Cincinnati, and has been a partner in the New York office of Pentagram since 1990. Michael is a Senior Critic in Graphic Design at the Yale School of Art.

Michael is such a great designer. I feel like sometimes graphic designers are slightly ashamed to talk about graphic design — like they are on a higher level. But I love how Michael embraces graphic design and speaks so candidly about it. Wonderful interview!
