PRINTCast: The PRINT Podcast Studio is a curated collection of cutting-edge podcasts we love about design, creativity, branding, books, and further subjects afield. Soon, we’ll have a dedicated digital listening room. In the meantime, we present Design Museum’s Design is Everywhere, hosted by Sam Aquillano and Liz Pawlak—a “podcast featuring stories of people and organizations using design to make an impact and change the world.”

The latest episode (No. 48): “Launching a Movement: Graphic Design for Social Change.” (Recorded live.)

Here’s more from the Design is Everywhere team:

In the first of our monthly Design is Everywhere live shows, Sam Aquillano learns how designers can be agents of change through their work. He is accompanied by Yvette Perullo, co-author of Renourish: Sustainable Graphic Design in Practice, and co-founder and partner at Re-nourish, a nonprofit that works with designers to understand and advocate for design decisions that center people and the environment. Later on in the show, they are joined by Jessie McGuire, managing director at brand design studio ThoughtMatter. Together they discuss her experiences designing for socially progressive causes while spearheading creative projects, and her best advice for designers who want to do similar work, before taking questions from the live audience.
