Debbie Millman has started a new project at PRINT titled “What Matters.” This is an ongoing effort to understand the interior life of artists, designers, and creative thinkers. This facet of the project is a request of each invited respondent to answer 10 identical questions, and submit a decidedly nonprofessional photograph.

Oded Ezer is a Tel Aviv-based typographer and design educator who creates visual content and commentary around subjects such as science, anthropology, body-modification, ethics, history, sociology, politics, and writing systems for major cultural and commercial bodies, such as MoMA, V&A Museum, Google, Samsung, Waze, Little Brown & Co., Taiwan National Museum of Art, Typomania Festival Moscow, Design Museum Holon, and many others.
