Sketchnotes of Brain Pickings’ Maria Popova on Design Matters with Debbie Millman

The daily interestingness that spills out of Maria Popova’s website Brain Pickings is astounding.  Three articles a day, well-researched, cogently-written, and beautifully-designed.  Candy for the brain.  In March of 2012 Popova sat down with Debbie Millman for an interview on the radio show Design Matters.  They talked about how Popova got into the work of curation (and the loadedness of that term), her daily routine, and some upcoming projects.  I listened and captured some of the ideas shared in the following sketchnotes:

      Hi Joe, glad that you enjoyed the sketchnote. I have been meaning to go back and listen to other episodes of Millman’s podcast but haven’t gotten to it yet. If you come across some particularly good ones, you should let me know!

  1. Very thought provoking stuff indeed! I love the curator’s code; direct repost and indirect discovery, that’s been how I’ve landed on some of the most interesting blogs, articles and finds on the web. There’s so much out there, being creative, original & inspired. Really awesome points and put across in such a creative way.

      Hi Alex! Yes, it will be interesting to see if the curator’s code catches on. I hope that it does. So many times I have found that one blog article or one person that I met has such an impact on my creative career that I wish I had been keeping track of the web of developments. I’m glad that you enjoyed these sketchnotes!
