As a designer you need to be able to listen its an important tool that needs developing, so no matter what if its a colleague or client, you understand 100% what they are telling you.
I also liken to listen to other designers, typographers and illustrators about what they have to say. It might be about their views the design industry, techniques they use within projects or just thoughts on work life balance. I’ve attended many design talks in Glasgow and further afield, and always came away with something from each talk.
Below are some videos I’ve found on YouTube and Vimeo from guys like Peter Saville to Erik Spiekermann who have plenty to say about life and work. Enjoy!
