Our creative work is often influenced by the work of others. Mine certainly is. Two divas of inspired information are Maria Popova of Brain Pickings and Debbie Millman of Design Matters.
Maria Popova, in her own words, is ‘a reader, writer, interestingness hunter-gatherer, and curious mind at large’ and founder of Brain Pickings. Brain Pickings ‘…is a cross-disciplinary LEGO treasure chest, full of pieces spanning art, science, psychology, design, philosophy, history, politics, anthropology, and more; pieces that enrich our mental pool of resources and empower combinatorial ideas that are stronger, smarter, richer, deeper and more impactful.’
Debbie Millman is a writer, educator, artist, brand consultant and host of the radio show Design Matters and Design Matters is ‘the world’s first podcast about design and an inquiry into the broader world of creative culture through wide-ranging conversations with designers, writers, artists, curators, musicians, and other luminaries of contemporary thought.
