Design Talks Now: The Making of a TV Series During the Time of COVID


In this episode of Design Talks, Ilene Shaw moderates a conversation between New York By Design Producer Mike Chapman, Design Matters Host Debbie Millman, and Industrial Designers Scott Henderson, Carey Bond, and our own Dan Harden. The talk covers the value of introducing design to the general public and the evolution of the “By Design” series—from its kickoff in Australia, to uncovering the most exciting innovations in California, to finally bringing the series to New York.

Harden weighs in on the subtle differences between New York and Silicon Valley’s design worlds, and the challenges they both share. The group also discusses the importance of designing for the current pandemic and the realities of filmmaking in one.
