This is a great talk by James Victore about striving to do good design work that really matters. His work for the Department of Probation is a great example of taking a difficult project and making something truly great. He does use a few rude words in this video (…and all of the other ones).
“James Victore runs an independent design studio hell-bent on world domination. He is an author, designer, filmmaker and firestarter. He continually strives to make work that is sexy, strong and memorable; work that toes the line between the sacred and the profane. His paintings of expressionist designs can be seen on ceramics, surfboards, billboards and supermodels.”
