Terry Marks of TMARKS Design graces our latest show. The show that barely happened in the end as it turns out. Immediately after recording, Terry had to head home sick. And the student tip from Mig Reyes also only arrived after Mig was able to recover from his bus getting hit by a truck just minutes before.
But we’re glad it all turned out fine for everyone in the end, as Terry talks with us about his new book with Matthew Porter from Rockport: Good Design; Deconstructing Form and Function and What Makes Good Design Work.
We also speak about the three dozen or so logos he’s done for DC Comics, how could we not?
And hang around until the end (or use the chapter markers we’ve gone back to including in our shows to jump directly to it) for a special appearance by the one and only Eddy Wang.
We welcome former AIGA national president Bill Grant to the show today. This is the guy who actually did what I assumed was impossible, and created the original AIGA Design Business and Ethics series.
Bill has also just done what many of us designers dream to – sell his own merchandise. But rather than taking the online store approach, he opened a physical storefront directly below his office called “The Store“.
And for those wondering what Bill is going to be up to next, we also speak briefly about his upcoming book, 1000 More Graphic Elements: Unique Elements for Distinctive Designs, Volume II.
The show ends with a fantastic student tip by Mig Reyes. Take up his advice in the comments below.
Jeff’s a person who we’ve talked to enough on the Internet, seen his work in over 100 books, as well as writing a couple himself, that we felt like we had already spoken to. Turn out not. Well, until now anyway.
The HOW Conference. I’m told that if you need to be re-energized in the field of design that it’s the best thing to do. I’m going this year, Steve Gordon is on some panel, and we spoke on the last show about how Armin Vit moved to Austin just to be closer to the action.
