Great Designers

Today’s Inspiration, the AIGA Medalists on YouTube.

I’m always on the lookout for design inspiration. It can come from anywhere, and take on many forms. I think it’s that always curious about learning new things, or looking for new ideas. One of the latest things that has sucked up a huge amount of my time is the AIGA Medalist playlist on YouTube. If you’re looking to be inspired, look no further. 44 videos averaging about 3 and a half minutes in length. The latest video is below. All 44 are at the link above.

Creative Influence Episode 13 – Michael Beirut.

If you don’t follow “The Creative Influence” on Vimeo, I suggest you take the afternoon off, click through to follow them, and get lost in the content they have uploaded. Believe me it is easy to do. They produce some really interesting stuff, that as their name suggests, focuses on creative. The video below is the latest installment featuring Michael Beirut, as he speaks about his mentor Massimo Vignelli, design process, how the internet has changed the way designers work, and what gives a logo staying power. It’s seven minutes long. Take a break from what you are doing and give it a look.
