Interviews confessions of a design geek

Interviews is a limited edition design book featuring eighteen conversations with designers from established names like Wim Crouwel and Anthony Burrill to Joanna Boyle who graduated the week the book was published.

Barbara Chandler, long-time design writer for the London Evening Standard and Homes & Gardens, and photographer / author of Love London said: “Katie Treggiden is a genuine new voice in design writing. She does Q&A in a fresh and unaffected fashion, allowing her subjects the space (both literally and metaphorically) to develop ideas and points of view. Over and over again, the empathy of her interviewing technique elicits a direct, frank and surprisingly revealing response. Deceptively reverential, she poses unaggressive yet astute questions that extract new insights even from the design greats such as John Makepeace and Javier Mariscal.”

William Shaw, Wed Editor, London Design Festival said: “Katie stands apart from other design writers… She turns designers into real people. She allows designers to speak in the same words as the people who use what they’ve made. There is something very democratic about that.”
