In this funny and entertaining video, Designing, Writing, Teaching: Not My Real Job, Michael Bierut outlines all of the little decisions that led him to the work that he is doing today. Through the years he has worked as a designer, writer, editor, blogger and teacher. He describes the pleasures and perils of working for 30 years with an intentionally confusing job description. This video is from a lecture given to D-Crit Program students at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, March 2011.
Michael Bierut studied graphic design at the University of Cincinnati, and has been a partner in the New York office of Pentagram since 1990. Michael is a Senior Critic in Graphic Design at the Yale School of Art. More Bio >>
