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).

Tobias: Mendelsund design:related Interview

Blogger and book designer Chris at Outerwearforbooks and Tobias Design has interviewed Knopf's book designer Peter Mendelsund once before, but this time he digs a bit further into this massive talent in an interview exclusively for design:related. It appears Chris will be contributing more like this in the future.

I personally appreciate Chris managing to get this interview. It's one thing to look at someone's work, as much can be learned by studying the work itself. And for people like me who have never worked at a big name company or worked with quote "famous" designers, learning by what I see in other's work has always been insightful. But hearing from them is way different, and as you'll see from Chris's line of questioning, he is uniquely qualified to ask questions in this fashion.

A great interview of a great designer by a great designer.

you are WAY too kind...but the compliments are much appreciated.

Peter was extremely generous and all-around a nice guy. A combination of talent and humilty is so rare in this biz I'm afraid.
