We’ve built this issue of Design Journal around the theme of passion and how it has a hold on us all. Visual designers and educators from around the world open up about how passion drives them in the work they do:
Lars Pyrds stresses putting heart behind your work; Paul Wallen opens up about the dark side of passion; Bethany Bickley discusses her joy of book sculpting; Andrea Levy’s reveals the risk-taking behind her award-winning Op-Ed pages; Sam Hundley shows his passion for found objects; Michael Stoll shares his love of the info-ephemera; Terence Oliver tells us how to make a difference in the classroom; Karl Gude sets the passion path right with his students; Amy Webb remains proactive about journalism’s future in tech; Adonis Durado champions an amazing soccer ball feat; Mario Garcia revisits his acting roots; Robert Dorrell spills the beans on his infographics ardor; Tara McCarty recalls a beloved professor; and visual journalists muse on their synergistic process. (And … more!)
We’ve also included a roundup of the World’s-Best Designed winners and runners-up in the print and digital competitions, and words of wisdom from our organization’s officers.
