Episode 29: Designers On The Couch (with Kerry William Purcell)
Posted on 11 January 2016
Joshua and Mitch welcome Kerry William Purcell, who is a British author writing about design, photography, and visual cultural theory. Starting with his book about Alexy Brodovitch, we talk about the relationship between history and contemporary practice, and discuss how designers should look outside the established canon of design history. We also try to understand the American Presidential election, and examine how we make connections with design artifacts before we know what design artifacts are.
