Season Two - Coming Soon

May 29, 2017

GET READY FOR SEASON TWO OF OBSESSED WITH DESIGN. 

Long-time listeners know that I interview designers of all types: architects, graphic designers, product designers, interior designers, process designers, and anyone with designer in their title, who are a little obsessed with their craft and industry. Our show explores the common threads that tie designers together, how they got started in the design world, and what makes them tick.

I've had the honor of interviewing some of the best in the business: Debbie Millman, Michael Bierut, David Carson, Paula Scher, and Armin Vit just to name a few. 

Tweet to @obsessedshow or @joshmiles and let us know who you'd like to hear on season two.

Thanks for listening, and we'll see you next time!
