Design Videos to Fill your Time

Anyone else out there getting sick of rewatching your favorite sitcom for the 100th time? Me too. I thought this week it would be helpful for me to provide some of my top picks for videos every graphic designer should watch.

Aaron Draplin’s Logo Design Tutorial

If you haven’t seen this one yet, you’re severely missing out! You can’t stress the basics too much and Aaron Draplin’s heavily-gridded and heavy-lined logos remind us why we all fell in love with design in the first place.

Building a Brand with The Futur

Ever wish there was a graphic design reality TV show? Well, this is as close as you’re going to get. In this series, two executives from the design firm Blind work with a client to design the brand for their brewery that is about to launch in-store sales. It’s amazing to see the way Blind presents their work and how in-depth their discovery process is!

Young Guns Seasons 1 & 2 (also with The Futur)

Project Runway meets graphic design, it’s amazing and I’m super jealous of every student that got to participate.

Michael Beirut at the 2015 AIGA Design Conference

Michael Beirut is one of the most influential designers of our era. His 2015 AIGA address is basically a summary of his life and career. It’s really amazing to hear about his internship with Massimo Vignelli and his experiences with Pentagram.
