During her visit in Bucharest this summer, Debbie will host a workshop for the participants admitted at Visual Playground and she’ll also amaze us all with an exciting public talk: How to design your creative life.
Debbie’s books are among the essentials that every graphic designer keeps in their shelf. She’s been an inspiration for decades and one of those people whose quotes we’d like to get tattooed somewhere special. Her podcast, Design Matters is the longest of its kind and has hosted over 300 creatives, writers, designers and entrepreneurs (like Seth Godin, Alain de Botton, Malcolm Gladwell etc.). If that’s not enough for you, we’ll just casually mention her solo exhibition at the Chicago Design Museum and watch you freak out, because we sure did when she agreed to join us this year.
“From designing Star Wars merchandise, and Hillary Clinton campaign buttons, to writing six books, to interviewing designers and other creative masterminds, to working with the world’s largest brands and having her artwork exhibited around the world, Debbie Millman has really done it all. Even though it may seem that her path to success was smooth, she didn’t always have it all figured out. After graduating from college, she didn’t feel confident enough to pursue her dream of becoming an artist or a writer, and often had to do commercial work in order to support herself. She now talks openly about those years of rejection, disappointment and struggle before finding her niche.” (http://www.thepowerofstorytelling.org/debbie-millman-on-designing-your-life/)
