Episode 10: Stop Sucking So Hard

Should every designer pay attention to design criticism? Mitch and Namdev are joined by design writer, critic and educator Chappell Ellison to continue the discussion about design criticism and its place in design. We talk about the Design Observer redesign and backlash, haters, criticism in design school, and the Buzzfeedification of design.
