Debbie Millman On Why Design (And Podcasting) Matters – This Week’s Six Pixels of Separation Podcast

Posted by

Episode #800 of Six Pixels of Separation is now live and ready for you to listen to.

I’m not one to celebrate milestones. Still, I found myself wondering who might make for a fascinating conversation if episode number 800 ever happened. I wanted it to be someone that I know, love and respect. At the same time, I wanted it be someone that has yet to be a guest on the show. Someone who knows what it’s like to toil in the long conversations over the years. There was only one choice: Debbie Millman. Debbie has been creating her own podcast since 2005. It is the first and longest running podcast about design. I do believe that Six Pixels of Separation is the longest consistently running business podcast, but I could be wrong. Debbie is a national treasure, and if you’re not listening to her show, Design Matters, you really should. Named “one of the most creative people in business” by Fast Company, and “one of the most influential designers working today” by Graphic Design USA, Debbie is also an author, educator, and curator, along with being a famed podcast host. Debbie is the author of seven books, including two collections of interviews that have extended the ethos and editorial vision of Design Matters to the printed page. Her most recent book, Why Design Matters – Conversations with the World’s Most Creative People, will be published in February 2022. She is also the co-owner and Editorial Director of Debbie co-founded the world’s first graduate program in branding at the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 2010. For 20 years, Debbie was the President of Sterling Brands, one of the world’s leading branding consultancies. She arrived in 1995 when the company was two years old and had 15 employees in one office. Under her leadership, Sterling grew to 150 employees in five offices and she was instrumental in the firm’s acquisition by Omnicom in 2008. Again, we share a lot of common and parallel career tracks. Let’s celebrate 800 episodes, the power of design, and what it takes to stay the course in the world of podcasting. Enjoy the conversation…
