Design Matters with Debbie Millman
Thought-provoking. Inspirational. Occasionally controversial. That’s Debbie Millman’s reputation. And deservedly so. For years, she’s been asking the tough questions, probing deep into the issues facing designers and sharing her insight into design, branding and the design process with creative designers through her Internet radio program, Design Matters with Debbie Millman.
As part of Adobe’s ongoing commitment to design and the San Francisco design community, we invite you to join Debbie as Adobe and AIGA San Francisco present a very special four-part series—Design Matters Live: Life, Love and the Pursuit of Design.
Each program will feature Debbie and a guest designer in conversation. They’ll discuss the issues and concerns facing the design community today … and the new challenges of the future. And we’re bringing it to you live from the Adobe San Francisco office.
If you care passionately about design, where it is now and where it’s going tomorrow, this is a series you don’t want to miss.

Dave Eggers is the author of the memoir A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (2000), the novels You Shall Know Our Velocity (2002) and What is the What (2006), and the story collection How We Are Hungry (2004). He is editor of the annual The Best American Nonrequired Reading series, and co-editor of the Voice of Witness series of oral histories. In 1998, he founded McSweeney’s, an independent book publishing house in San Francisco which puts out the McSweeney’s quarterly; the monthly magazine The Believer; a daily humor website, www.mcsweeneys.net; and Wholphin, a DVD quarterly of short films. In 2002, he opened 826 Valencia (www.826valencia.org), a writing lab for young people located in the Mission District of San Francisco; there are now branches of 826 in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and Michigan. He has designed most of the books and quarterlies published by McSweeney’s and created the templates for The Believer and Wholphin. His design work has been featured in many annuals and periodicals, and was featured in the National Design Triennial at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and in the California Design Biennial. Mr. Eggers lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
