As host of the smash-hit Internet radio show Design Matters with Debbie Millman, Debbie Millman has introduced over one hundred of the world’s greatest designers, illustrators, authors and thinkers as her guests. So let me be the first to tell you how daunting it is to introduce Debbie herself.

Debbie is also the newest president of the AIGA, the professional association for designers, which will be holding its biennial conference in Memphis this October. She gave a rousing speech at the organization’s recent gala about why exactly we should be celebrating design and designers, even in times like these. One reason: “No matter how bleak the situation into which we have been thrown by the
global economy–it does offer opportunities. Designers need only invent
them. By understanding our living and working context–we blow open
avenues of opportunity and innovation not yet charted or explored.”
