    Versus: A Documentation of Wrungniss & Misatkes

    Date: June 30, 2011
    Time: 1:00 p.m. PT / 4:00 p.m. ET

    Presenter: Frank Chimero is a graphic designer and illustrator. He makes pictures about words and words about pictures. His clients include The New York Times, Nike, Wired, Microsoft, Newsweek, The Atlantic and Starbucks. He has been featured by Print, the Art Directors Club of New York, Vanity Fair, Monocle, and The Society of Illustrators.

    “A sequence of mistakes, a gradient of experiences. School versus work. Tasks versus objectives. Answers versus responses. Content versus formats. Pride versus paycheck. What you want versus what they want. The spiked club versus the subtle lure. What they told you versus what actually is. The thing that you need to know versus what you think you should know. This is everything I’ve learned from six years in business, and none of it is about business. It’s about the work, but not how to do it. No silver bullets. No recipes. No pictures. Just misatkes.”

    In this DesignCast you’ll learn:

    • All of Frank’s mistakes and bad assumptions.
    • A few things Frank thinks he knows but he’s probably wrong about.
    • How designers aren’t really problem solvers, he thinks.
    • Since when does a conversation need to have deliverables?
