The Nerdization Of Graphic Design
This is a Daily Heller reprise (originally published in 2011):
NERD: A single-minded expert in a particular field. DESIGN NERD: A designer who needs a cuddly pet.
“DESIGNerd,” a multiple choice design trivia game app and analog card game, was founded and developed IN 2011 by Australian-based designer and publisher, Kevin Finn, on behalf of design enthusiasts the world over. When I asked what inspired “DESIGNerd 100+,” Finn says:
“I’m a self-confessed DESIGNerd, passionate about all forms of design. I simply want to share design knowledge with other design enthusiasts, but in a fun and engaging way. And, what could be more engaging than learning what some of our most respected designers think is relevant or interesting to know?”
