Envisioning the Future with Visual Design
Play • 49 min

A powerful tool of protest, identity and expression, visual language is the pinnacle of design possibilities. In this episode of the Mic, guests Paula Scher, New York partner at Pentagram and world-renowned visual designer, and Julian Alexander, Grammy Award-winning art director and founder of Slang Inc., explore how visual design shapes the world around us with our host, Debbie Millman. Drawing on their breadth of design expertise and experiences, Scher and Alexander discuss the timelessness and timeliness of visual language, as well as how graphic design responds to current events. Reflected in their bold designs for NYCxDESIGN's An Ode to NYC poster collection, Scher and Alexander also consider how visual art connects us to New York, and how we can use visual design to envision our future city.
