“I just say that everything that is around you has either been designed or it’s an accident. I mean if you’re walking upstairs and you see a bit of bird shit on the staircase, I mean the bird shit is an accident but the staircase has been designed…”
— Max Robinson
I recently came across the Australian Graphic Design Association video series Conversations with Designers. I can’t claim to know very much about Australian design history — I know next to nothing in fact — but it’s always interesting to hear designers talk about the discipline of design and their work in the field.
I should also mention that I discovered the interviews thanks to the wonderful blog Re:collection, an online archive of Australian graphic design from 1960-1980. Definitely worth a look.
