Over the past 15 years, Debbie Millman has interviewed hundreds of creative minds on her award-winning podcast, “Design Matters,” to explore what it means to design a creative life, as well as one with meaning and purpose. In Why Design Matters: Conversations with the World’s Most Creative People, Millman showcases her most exciting interviews, bringing together insights and reflections from today’s leading creative minds from across diverse fields.

This illustrated, curated anthology groups dozens of Millman’s best interviews featuring the likes of Brené Brown, Ira Glass, Pete Souza, Aminatou Sow, Priya Parker, Alain de Botton, Tim Ferriss, and Esther Perel. Grouped into categories—Legends, Truth Tellers, Culture Makers, Trendsetters, and Visionaries—the book reflects Millman’s singular talent for celebrating curiosity, self-expression, intelligence, and both inner and outer beauty. Why Design Matters reveals new ways of being and living.

Named “one of the most creative people in business” by Fast Company, Millman is also an author, educator, curator, and brand consultant. She will be in conversation with her wife, Roxane Gay, the bestselling author of Hunger, Bad Feminist, and Difficult Women, among others, and a contributing Opinion writer for the New York Times.
