247: Forest Young

Play Download media

Forest Young is the global principal and head of design at Wolff Olins, and let me tell you...he's a busy, busy guy. Whether he's serving as a design critic at Yale University (his alma mater) or or overseeing award-winning design projects, Forest brings a high level of observation and specificity to his work.

We start off talking about one of Wolff Olins' recent award-winning campaigns Dotdot, and that spurred a discussion about the ethics of bleeding edge future design, and even access to meaningful design criticism through education. One thing Forest says is that dream projects are never in the wrappers you expect them to be, and I totally agree with that. If you're looking for a really deep conversation with someone at the top of their design game, then you'll enjoy this week's interview!

Design and journalism might seem like opposite fields, but technology has brought them closer together than ever before (especially over the past few years). How are journalists navigating this new landscape where news is now a designed experience? To gain some insight on this, I spoke with Michael...

Like several guests I've had on the show, I knew of Brandon Breaux's work before I even knew who he was! He may be known best as the artist behind the mixtape covers for Chance the Rapper, but Brandon's art spans much further than that. And no matter how far his art takes him, he always represents f...

If there's anything I learned from talking with Thomas Dang, it's that he really puts a lot of effort into not just making sure his work is seen, but that it's felt as well. That can be a difficult thing for a graphic designer to do, but Thomas' unique mix of skills gives him a perspective many othe...

There's been some debate in the community recently about whether UX is considered a design discipline, so we've been talking to UX designers in lots of different fields to get a better look at just why UX is so important. And thanks to Alex Binder, that's how I met Tony Turner, a UX designer in Clev...
