A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

Taxi Interviews: Heller, Sagmeister, Kidd

Another great Design Leader interview from Taxi, a design portal I've brought to your attention before, only under the name DesignTaxi. I can't tell if my former name for the site was in error, or whether they changed their name. Either way, this new interview features three heavyweights (skill not waist size) in the design profession: Steven Heller, Stefan Sagmeister and Chip Kidd. All in all a good three part interview. There are many other great interviews on the taxi Design Leader site, but I can't figure out how to make a link to them individually. Consequently if you are interested in any of those listed below, just go to the main site, and look at the bottom right under the category "EXCLUSIVE: Design Leaders" and click on the individual names there.

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the support and nice words.

We are called TAXI Design Network, fondly known as TAXI, albeit not to be confused with the advertsing agency, Taxi canada or Taxi NYC. Design Taxi is merely our url address: www.designtaxi.com

One is not able to link the design icons separately if they are featured on the same page/article publication.

We are very glad you are enjoying the read on TAXI. Next week, we are having famous Design Critics/Writers: Ellen Lupton, Michael Bierut and Rick Poynor. By the way, Hot Features section is not a new section. It is an editorial section which comprise of different columns:

THE DRIVER SPEAKS, a design critic column with many international contributors and correspondents, talking about diverse design topics and grieves, if you may say so.

THE FRONT SEAT, an interview feature on our premium portfolio members.

DIRECT ACCESS, an editorial section of our exclusive event coverage all around the world.

TRAVEL ALBUM, the photography section of our
exclusive event coverage all around the world.

DESIGN LEADERS, an interview column for the design icons which rock the industry.

THE WRITE TURN, a book review corner where design/creative books and annuals are reviewed, complete with page images and interesting creative direction of review.

THE BRAND CENTRAL STATION, is a case study on international brands, may it be a 'branded' name of an advertising award organization such as New York Festivals and D&AD or fashion or even brands of stationery.

I hope this paints a clearer picture of TAXI Design Network, www.designtaxi.com, for you and your readers. Again, thanks for your support.

Am looking forward for future feedbacks from you.

Bianca Zen
TAXI Deisgn Network

I find it particularly satisfying to have you stop by my little ole blog. I congratulate you and your team on an outstanding resource. I look forward to your upcoming critic writer thing next week. I like Poytner from his EYE days, and look forward to more from Beirut (deservedly overexposed) and the smart Lupton. Keep up the GREAT work. Thanks again for taking time to contact me. I'm honored.
