Now more than ever, normal people are aware of and attracted to good design. And no one knows that better than author/designer David Kadavy, who recently gave a fascinating TED talk on the topic.
“People are already learning about design,” said Kadavy via email. “You can talk about Times New Roman versus Helvetica at a cocktail party these days — and that wouldn’t have happened 20 years ago.”
In this 17-minute talk, he goes into the niceties and not-so-niceties of our cultural conversations around design and how design as a basic life skill is becoming mainstream.
