(14:12) • Do you think perfection exists in design? (17:40) • What do you think about contemporary design? (19:06) • What do you think about the impact the internet had on design? (24:12) • How do you see design education? (28:50) • What kind of role the designer will have in the future? (30:35) • What do you think the design world can do for this global pandemic? (30:35)

Design Interview 10Q is a personal project of Fabio Mario Rizzotti, a graphic designer, with an interest in knowing stories behind design from around the world. The project has started because during this period that we are facing, this global pandemic, is important to do something the goal of Design Interview 1Q is to share and give good content to people.

TGM ‘You’re my Type’ (DE)
Think Work Observe has been part of the lectures program 2018 of the TGM Typographische Gesellschaft München. In the words of the chairman Christina John: ‘Language and writing as a bridge between people and cultures, as a means of understanding. The designed word as a possibility of identification. Due to the individuality of the design, language and writing become the type (o) question. Microtypograph or experimental designer? Functionalist or artist? Which types should be adjusted? What type of communication is ‘exactly my type’, which types do we want to address and, last but not least, which type am I? – ‘You’re my type’ is the motto of this year’s Munich Typographic Society. Who are the guys behind TGM, who’s up front, who are the faces of tgm 2018? Our work is supported by many committed members, speakers, sponsors – they all shape the tgm. Therefore, we would like to introduce the faces and stories of these people: whether lateral thinkers, micro-typographers, functionalists, artists, club members or rebels, they all accompanied, designed and developed the association. To put it in Kurt Schwitter’s words: ‘Creating relationships is the goal of all typography.’ We are following this in our new newsletter as well as in the upcoming annual program from January 2018 and look forward to welcoming many new types in 2018, among others.’
