Today it was a true treat to view the latest in the School of Visual Arts MFA Designer as Author podcasts, which we keep on going back to, mainly because they have video. (Honestly, unless you’re paying $1200 for a two-day conference, how else are you going to see your favorite designers in action?)
Christoph Niemann stars in this two-parter and although we’ve enjoyed his design and illustration for quite some time now, we’ll admit that seeing him speak came as quite a shock. He’s as funny and articulate as his work–not always the case when it comes to those who doodle. Plus, he’s incredibly young–we imagined this graying German elder, which he’s definitely not. We might even consider making Niemann our next internet crush. Once Ze goes off the air, that is. Only 15 days left!
