PSA: this series on Netflix is really good. Each episode highlights a designer in a particular field (illustration, architecture, set design, etc). The subject talks about their work, their process, and their journey, and the whole thing is incredibly well produced. I love series like this (the podcast Song Exploder also comes to mind) because it removes a lot of the mystery behind the creative process. There’s no magic, just a lot of hard work, happy accidents, and perseverance.
We’re only a few episodes in, but we especially loved the Es Devlin episode.
